Samsung LN26C450 Review

Samsung's 2010 4 Series LCDs are a step up from the 3 series. Available in the same sizes they still feature a 60Hz, 720p, CFL backlit panel, with SRS TruSurround HD. They add a third HDMI input, the ability to watch video off a USB thumb drive and Samsung's AnyNet+ which allows communication between similarly equipped Samsung home theater equipment. The 4 Series LCD make for an excellent TV for the bedroom, a child's room or other rooms where you need a smaller, less expensive HDTV.

Strengths

  • Touch of Color/Attractive
  • HD Picture Quality
  • SD, 480i Picture Quality
  • Internal Processing
  • Calibration and Menu System

Weaknesses

  • Side Viewing Angle
  • Framing Bezel a little large
  • Audio Quality lacking
  • Audio Volume lacking

Currently the LN26C450 costs around $429 from authorized Internet dealers. It offers a very nice feature set and quality in this small size and price range – which is often lacking in quality options. A ratings score of more 90 or above is very good for this size category. Competition is from the Panasonic TC-L26X1, and the LG 26LE5300 as well as a couple second tier brands such as Vizio.
