C550 Series


There are four models in the mid-line C550 series. While they lack high-end features like internet connectivity, all are attractively designed and should have roughly similar performance results to the LN32C550 we've tested here. You can anticipate some minor variations in brightness and screen uniformity, because as the screen size increases so too do the number of CCFL bulbs that make up the backlighting. Color response, motion performance, and viewing angle should be nearly identical.
