The Samsung LE40C550 40 inch LCD TV gives you a top spec for less than you might expect.
With full 1080p HD Ready technology, the LE40C550 is ready for the new generation of High Definition sources such as Blu-ray. The full 1920 x 1080 resolution lets you see more detail than ever before and creates a vivid sense of realism. Also standard is Samsung's Wide Colour Enhancer 2 engine. This unique Samsung system uses colour stretching technology to saturate each pixel until it achieves a natural colour and luminescence. Added to this is Samsung's Ultra Clear Panel. As the name suggests, this enhances contrast by reducing haze and reflection. Finally, a high contrast ratio also gives the LE40C550 excellent depth of image with subtle shading.
Although we'd always recommend a separate home cinema system, the Samsung's Dolby Digital Plus and SRS TruSurround HD systems give a useful boost to audio performance. With indirect firing technology the, hidden, speakers create a spacious sound that's less boxy sounding than some.
A total of four HDMI sockets give class-leading connectivity. With one of the HDMI sockets mounted at the side you can easily connect occasionally used items, such as an HD camcorder or games console. In addition to this, the LE40C550 boasts two SCART sockets and component connections for your older sources. Furthermore, the PC input makes this attractive TV the perfect complement to your home computer - especially when used in conjunction with the Samsung's special Game Mode. Topping off the wide range of sockets is a digital optical sound output - ideal for connecting this Samsung 40 inch 1080p LCD TV to your home cinema for a useful upgrade in sound quality.
Completing this stunning 1080p Samsung is a stylish case finished in "Platinum Black". This high gloss finish gives the LE40C550 an expensive appearance and is perfectly complimented by the stand. For added convenience the stand also swivels for the best viewing angle.
For a TV that's stylish, well connected and, above all, great to watch, the Samsung LE40C550 leads its class.
