Samsung 52" Black Flat Panel Series 5 LCD HDTV, Model LN52B550

Step up to the power of Full HD on a 52-inch LCD screen, with Samsung’s LN52B550. The amazing 1080p resolution – the highest available – with Wide Color Enhancer renders the most crisp vivid tones, in every frame for the most realistic picture quality. Black tones and shadows are strikingly superb, thanks to the 70,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The attractive Touch of Color™ design – a red accent at the bezel’s edge – lights up any room. A fast 6ms response time offers smooth, clear action. Watch or listen to files from your favorite media player, using the USB 2.0 input. Connecting your DVD, cable or satellite HD box, or Blu-ray Disc® player is a snap, with four HDMI inputs.

      Comments about Samsung 52" Black Flat Panel Series 5 LCD HDTV:

      This TV replaced a 6.5 year old Toshiba HD Flat Screen Tube TV in our family room and I couldn't be happier. I researched TV's quite extensively for some time before deciding on this one. I always thought Samsung had/has the best picture out of any TV I have ever seen. This TV is only a 60hz, but I do not notice any difference over 120hz. I've watched football and racing and other fast action shows, and the picture is just outstanding! Granted not all shows are going to look as good as others on this TV or any HD TV for that matter, but that's because they are't all HD. I would definitely recommend this TV to others, as well as recommending ABT Electronics, which I actually already have. [...] I will definitely be purchasing more products from them in the future!!
