Samsung has achieved a quiet triumph with the LN55C650 LCD TV. Without resorting to expensive, exotic technologies, it has produced a big screen TV that exceeds the performance of last year's much higher priced UN55B7100 LED TV in almost every...

Though we've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Samsung's 3D HDTV, we're not at all disappointed by the fact that we got the LN55C650 ($2099.99 list) instead. It isn't a 3D-ready set, but this 55-inch CCFL-backlit model is one of the...
