Pros:Supports DLNA! Lots of input entries!

Cons:Picky on media streamers. MediaTomb needs tweaking but not MiniDLNA or tvmobiliti.

The Bottom Line: I really enjoy this television for the price I paid. I can hardly see any other television do better for less.


I bought this television as a Christmas present to myself in January and since then, I've only had fun with this 55 inches monster! I had to lower the seats of my minivan to bring it home otherwise I would have had to wait a week before having it delivered! HD is really nice and clear on it, video games make you feel as you were in them! The sound is also pretty good, however I would like it if it could be possible to adjust the volume a tad faster.

I installed my television to the wall and ran my wires through the wall so they cannot be apparent from the front. The Ethernet connection is 100mbps, so make sure your streaming media does that if you want fluid HD, otherwise it might chop. MKV files in 1080p tend to use lots of bandwidth.

I had trouble setting a streaming server that the television would listen to, however MiniDLNA and tvmobiliti are the best ones I could use in Linux and Windows with this TV. Also don't forget, Windows Media Player does not support MKV files without additional codecs, so you won't be able to stream them out of it. However Windows 7's "Play to" feature is really nifty: Right-click any compatible (avi, mp3) file, choose "Play to" in the submenu, and your LN55C630 television should appear in the menu!

One last note: if you have a very large media library (over a terabyte), stay away from Samsung's AllShare PC Software streamer. It's a nice effort from them, but it crashes if it tries to scan folders with lots of files in them.
