Samsung LN55A950 Reviewed

samsung ln55a950The 55-inch Samsung LN55A950 is the larger of two LCD HDTVs by Samsung, which sit right at the top of the product line up. The flagship LCD HDTV has a great design which Samsung call “Touch of Color”, and as you would expect, has some top notch features.

The most notable feature of the Samsung LN55A950 is it’s second generation LCD backliting with local dimming which produces an amazing 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which delivers great colors and black levels by dimming the brightness of different areas on the screen.

The Full HD 1080p LCD panel in the LN55A950 features Auto Motion Plus 120Hz which substantially eliminates any motion blur and judder, keeping the images sharp and clear.  As well as featuring LED blackliting, the Samsung LN55A950 uses a 1080p ultra clear panel which further improves color and contrast, while reducing screen glare and reflections that can disrupt viewing.

You can even directly access news, sports, weather, stock information and more through the LN55A950 InfoLink RSS feature. Homethearemag gave the Samsung LN55A950 their “top pick”, and said my impression is that the Pioneers and the LN55A950  are far closer in both black level and shadow detail than I ever would have imagined possible. The Samsung LN55A950 is an exceptional set, with superb, color, fine resolution, and compelling black levels and shadow detail that competing LCDs can only dream of. Don’t choose another set until you have a chance to see this one.
