Summary: I have the original Samsung first generation FALD (Full Array Local Dimming) TV and recently setup a second home and needed a new TV. It is disappointing that there are very few FALD's left on the market because of cost and casing preference by consumers who do not care as much for the picture quality. FALD's add a little thickness today (vs A LOT back in the days of Samsung 81F and SONY XBR8), but the black level afforded by it is second only to plasma and OLED.

Summary: I am a HUGE fan of LG. Over the last 5 years I had gone thru 5 different models (5400, 6200 , 7600, G2 , and LM9600) before finally purchasing THIS unit. Each subsequent TV was an improvement over the last, but THIS TIME the improvement is a major one. I care very little about Apps or web features and as such will not include them in THIS review. I am more concerned about picture quality and I will mostly talk about THAT.
Summary: There is a post by a person named Quentin giving this TV one star. This person may possibly be the dumbest person alive and I would suggest Obama sign an executive order to prevent this person from being on the Internet ever again. So! Currently there is little support for 4K TVs in the United States. Fortunately, I own this TV in Japan where support exists.
Summary: I was actually surprised that this 55" Model was better than a compeditor's model (except for the speakers - which most people won't use as they have their own Surround Sound Systems already).
Fact: This Model recognizes more file formats than the compeditor's model (Particularly: MKV and FLV, which the compeditor's model doesn't support).
Fact: This TV has a HEVC decoder (which will be used for 4K video... the other one doesn't.
