        You cannot hookup external speakers to this TV and the sound from the internal speakers is poor. If I knew there was not an Audio-Out port I would not have bought this TV.

            • Wobbly Base

            Best Uses

              Comments about Samsung LN40E550 40" Class LCD HDTV:

              I'm really happy with the quality of the image and the size of the tv. It's perfect for my living room. I did't really like the mount it came with. I couldn't get it tight and it is wobbly. Luckily I got a wall mount to avoid that issue.

              I was disappointed in the number of inputs in the back. I think that any tv this size should have a simpler option to connect to your computer or laptop, however this tv only has HDMI inputs making it quite difficult.

              Other than that, I think its a really great TV.
