If you are actually going to buy lenses then you are best off with Canon FD lenses which have aperture rings and most are effectively earlier manual versions of the EF lens range and high performing lenses.

Thanks for the info. I agree that FD lenses would be a better bet if I was buying specifically for the NX100. But I'm not really planning to buy any new lenses to go with it, I just want to be able to use the lenses from my DSLR (Canon 550D) on the Samsung.

To be honest I'm mainly buying it for the fun factor of trying out the Canon lenses on the smaller camera. I doubt I'll get much practical use out of them, as my primary use case for the NX100 is with a pancake lens, as a pocketable "take-anywhere" camera. But for the price of one of these cheap adaptors, I figured it was worth it as a Christmas present to myself.
