Samsung LN46B550 46inch LCD TVMar 18th, 2010 | By Simon
Samsung recently re-launched their website and it has made it much easier to find information on a specific product or compare several models at once. It only took 3 clicks to reach the LN46B550 product page.
Here are the features of the TV:
Here are the specifications:
The 5 series is the highest end model of 2009 with 60Hz display. Once you reach the 6 series you’ll find the TVs display up to 120Hz. Depending on your TV requirements, 60Hz may be enough. Anyone who just needs to replace a dead CRT TV or doesn’t plan on watching many high action movies or play fast paced games on their TVs will still happily enjoy the 60Hz. The way I like to think of it is if you don’t know what you’re missing then you won’t need it. If you know what 120Hz has to offer and think you’ll be able to take advantage of it then you should certainly consider the 6 or higher series.
The B550 is also the top model in the 5 series. It has the highest listed contrast ratio of 70000:1 whereas the B540 and B530 have 60000:1. The B550 also has a slightly newer remove (model TM960 vs TM950) which gives it the backlight button and, unlike the B530, the B550 comes with side input & output controls. More of this on the next page.
