Samsung LNB530 series Quick Take

CNET did not review any of these LCD HDTVs, but we did review a similar model that may give you an idea of how the they will perform.

The Samsung LNB530 series of LCD HDTVs was introduced in the spring of 2009. It consists of the 32-inch LN32B530, the 37- inch LN37B530, the 40-inch LN40B530, the 46-inch LN46B530 and the 52-inch LN52B530.

CNET did not review any of these models, but we did review the Samsung LN46B650, which may give you an idea of how the LNB530 will perform. The LNB530 does have a few step-down features, though, including only three HDMI inputs and a lack of 120Hz processing, picture-in-picture, a USB input, and networking capabilities. It also has a lower contrast ratio, which likely means worse black-level performance, and a matte as opposed to glossy screen finish. For more information, refer to the full review of the Samsung LN46B650.
