Samsung LN32C550J1F Review » Key Feature Ratings
Price The cost of this LCD TV is $22 per inch of screen size. This is priced about average.
ENERGY STAR ENERGY STAR qualified. This HDTV uses about 40% less electricity than standard televisions.
Efficiency Estimated annual electricity use is 3.5 kWh per inch of screen size. This is more energy efficient than your average ENERGY STAR TV.
Design Incorporates 8 key design features that make a difference. This HDTV has more key features than average and ranks in the top 35% of new TV designs.
Best-Seller This TV is not a top best-seller at a national store including Amazon, Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. – Samsung LN32C550J1F Review
Resolution Designed with 1080p resolution, the highest definition available. Provides nearly twice the resolution of 720p, and allows you to fully utilize 1080p videos or programming.
Side Inputs Includes side inputs that allow you to conveniently plug-in some devices without having to reach behind the TV.
LED Does not incorporate LED backlighting. LED technology is more expensive, but it saves on energy and allows the TV to be significantly thinner.
Local Dim Local dimming technology is only available on LCD televisions with LED backlighting.
Frame Rate Uses a standard 60 Hz (60 frames per second) which is adequate for many programs and movies, but you may experience slight motion blur during fast action scenes.
THX Like most HDTVs, this is not THX certified. THX generally indicates that the TV will have high-quality picture performance. – Samsung LN32C550J1F Review
DLNA DLNA certified (Digital Living Network Alliance) for some TV inputs to promote hassle-free connectivity and sharing of digital content between home electronics.
3D This Samsung television is not 3D ready. 3D TVs allow you to view 3D content from select video games, Blu-ray discs, and programming, but are much more expensive.
Wi-Fi Wi-Fi capable, but does not include a built-in receiver or external adaptor. Purchase an external adaptor and you can access your home wireless internet service.
Internet Internet access is not available with this TV. You cannot view streaming internet videos, widgets, or applications that are available with many brands.
DVD Player Like most televisions, this Samsung TV does not have a built-in DVD or Blue-ray player. Most consumers purchase these items separately.
Depth This Samsung television has a thin profile with a depth of only 3.1″. Slim TVs are attractive and more suitable for wall mounting. – Samsung LN32C550J1F Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers provide 20 watts of total output power, which is about average. – Samsung LN32C550J1F Review
HDMI Provides 4 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and other devices such as a DVD player, video game console, and PC.
