#1 – 32″ Samsung LED TV
Advisors Price: $199
Experience sharp picture quality, even when you are watching fast-moving images like sports or action movies. Clear Motion Rate was developed to accurately measure how well an LCD or LED TV can depict fast-moving images. Previously, motion-clarity was calculated by the frame refresh rate alone. But CMR offers a more complete measure by calculating 3 factors: frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology. LED TVs with a CMR of 60 -120 can display action-packed movement with sharp detail and vivid contrast while eliminating image distortion.
Wide Color Enhancer Plus allows you to see picture color the way the director originally intended. Witness the entire RGB spectrum brought to life on your screen to bring you exceptionally vibrant, yet natural-looking images faithful to the director’s original intent.

#4 – Samsung Sound bar & Subwoofer
Powered home theater sound bar with wireless subwoofer and Bluetooth
Do you find yourself constantly on the edge of your seat when you watch TV? If so, maybe it’s because you’re having trouble hearing your TV’s tiny built-in speakers. If so, get the Samsung HW-H550 sound bar system so you can finally kick back and relax. This sound bar and wireless subwoofer deliver clear, detailed sound with more than enough volume to wash over you as you lounge on your couch. The only reason to sit on the edge of your seat should be a tense scene in a movie.
The slim HW-H550 can rest on your TV stand or be mounted on your wall. You can place the subwoofer just about anywhere. It syncs wirelessly with the sound bar, so you don’t have to run long wires to enjoy deep bass response that TV speakers can’t deliver. Powerful bass means those action movies will explode with life in your living room. Worried those loud scenes will wake sleeping children or spouse? The Smart Volume feature prevents drastic changes in volume, either during a movie or while watching TV with annoyingly loud commercial interruptions.
Keep your smartphone around when you’re near this sound bar. It’s got Bluetooth onboard, so you can wirelessly stream music from your device to the bar for rich, full-range sound that fills your room. You can even turn on the sound bar with your Bluetooth-compatible device by simply pairing them. If you have a Bluetooth-compatible Samsung TV, you can connect the HW-H550 to it wirelessly, giving you a little more setup flexibility. That’s a lot more Bluetooth functionality than we’re used to seeing in sound bars or most other home audio components.
The HW-H550 has another cool feature not found on many sound bars: a USB port. You can load up a thumb drive with your favorite digital music, pop it in the rear-panel port, and leave it there, so you always have music cued up and ready to play. Even with a wall-mounted bar, you won’t lose access to the USB port. The HW-H550 includes a USB cable and adapter, so you can use thumb drives without direct access to the rear-panel port.
