A new affordable 22 inch LCD TV
Another Samsung TV we are going to review today is the new Samsung LN22B360. The team at Samsung claims that this new device combines “delivers the most amazing picture quality.” Is this all true? We will let our review answer the question.
720p display resolution
The newest Samsung LN22B360 brings, as do all the company’s TVs, a lot of appeal design-wise. The color it comes in is piano black, which makes the product look both stylish and elegant. The device boasts the following weight and measurements: 11.2 pounds and 3″ x 22″ x 15.1″. As expected, the measurements turn this TV into one of the lightest and slimmest ones made so far. On the front of the device you’ll see a 22″ HD LCD HDTV Display. The latter sports 720p resolution, 1366×768 Native Resolution, 15.000:1 dynamic contrast ratio,16:9 native aspect ratio and 8ms response time.
Wide Color Enhancer 2 technology
We were glad to see that the stand of LN22B360 was solid. There was no need for us to be afraid that it would get damaged should we have knocked the table we placed it on. The 15.000:1 dynamic contrast ratio offered us the possibility to watch movies and shows which the TV provided with enhanced details in both very bright and dark scenes; what resulted was sharper picture quality than the one offered by other devices out there.
The display of the latest LN22B360 HDTV comes with something more commonly known as Wide Color Enhancer 2; this allowed us to experience excellent colors. The 8ms the device needs to respond is slower than what other such products offer clients, such as 6ms or even 5ms.
We could watch content on this gadget without any problem whatsoever, because its viewing angles were great.
As for options regarding ways of connecting the TV you have these: 1 PC input, 1 HDMI 1.3, 1 Optical sound output, 1 Optical sound output and 1 Component video. The added digital tuner is worthy of a mention or two, because thanks to it we could watch films, play various games and watch over-the-air digital broadcasts and others of the same kind.
SRS TruSurround XT HD
The device ships with a gaming mode which, according to tests, left us awed with the quality of audio, with enhanced blacks and sharp images. The sound performance was good thanks to the pair of speakers which provided virtual surround-sound thanks to the SRS TruSurround XT HD.
The new LN22B360 comes with the following: remote control, cleaning cloth, TV stand, cover bottom, warranty card, hardware, a manual telling all about safety issues and, lastly, user’s manual. The device complies with Energy Star regulations.
And so, the Samsung LN22B360 delivers good performance and great image quality for which you’ll have to pay little. So, if you’re on a lookout for another TV, we wholeheartedly recommend the one we featured in today’s review.
