Samsung LN46C530F1F LCD HDTV Review
A TV of modest ambitions, and we reward its humility. It just displays a picture... and it does that pretty well.
Input Ports (6.5)
The Samsung LN46C530 has a relatively limited number of ports, at least by modern standards. There are 3 HDMIs, while 4 HDMIs is the more common. Users with older devices will appreciate the 2 composite and 2 component AV inputs, but note that one of them is shared.
The ports are located in a little pocket on the back of the TV. Most face the back, but a few face the side for to more easily swap AV cables and USB devices.
Output Ports (2.0)
The Samsung LN46C530 has both analog and digital audio outputs, which give you the option of plugging the TV into almost any stereo or surround sound system.
Other Connections (0.0)
The Samsung LN46C530 does not offer any internet or DLNA network support. It's just a plain, ol' TV, people.
The Samsung LN46C530 does, however, have a USB port. With it, you can connect to USB mass storage devices or full-fledged hard drives with a USB connection. More details here.
The port placement is great, consider all the ports either face the side or the back. The TV panel swivels on its base, and all the ports are clearly labeled.
