Failed in 3 years
8 October 2012
Summary: Our screen went white all of a sudden, like a photo negative. For a product that was not exactly cheap, 3 years is unacceptable. I found some people solved it with a fix you can find here ([...]), but I had no luck with it. Samsung -- never again!
Summary: I have owned this TV for two years and it recently failed. Two separate problems -- the capacitors on the power supply are bad (a known problem) and the main board failed. Apparently many Samsung TVs have failed due to bad capacitors, and this is a common problem for Samsung. Samsung covered the cost of replacing the capacitors, but the main board replacement is costing me $180.
Summary: I'd recommend this TV to anyone! It's reasonably priced and has quality features and a very good picture! I bought this TV for my wifes parents and they love it! I decided to purchase this TV based on the reviews I've researched and I was not disappointed. It's been everything it was reviewed to be and more! If you're considering an HDTV LCD TV, I'd put this one on your short list!
DO NOT BUY-Bad Quality, 3 fixes still no good. Horrible Customer Service.

Summary: I bought this TV August 2008 and started to have screen blackout issues within 6 months. Customer service came 2-3 times and basically swapped out the power supply, mother board and the LCD panel itself. Only thing didn't change was the plastic cover and stand. The fix worked for a couple of months now, but a few days ago, the TV completely went dark. I called customer service and got involved with the executive service team.
Summary: My wife and I spent a lot of time checking out reviews on the web, as well as viewing many different models & makes of HDTV's before finally deciding on the Samsunt LN37A550. Right from first view my wife fell in love with the picture: to her it just seemed brighter and clearer than all the rest. After much comparison to the competition I would have to say I agree with her. The picture is very bright and clear. As far as 1080p vs.
Summary: I have had the TV for about a month now and I like everything except the sound. The picture is great and it has every hookup you could ever want which makes up for the poor sound quality. If you are not going to use a seperate sound system all the time I would really suggest you hear this tv before purchasing. Otherwise I really like it.
Pros: Attractive Design, Fast Setup, Good Connection Options, Good Resolution, Simple Controls
Summary: I purchased this TV for my family room and I love it. Sharp, clear picture and it synced with my surround sound right away. I can't believe the great picture with just the basic cable coming into the house.
Pros: Attractive Design, Bright Image, Fast Setup, Good Connection Options, Good Resolution, Reduced Glare, Simple Controls
Summary: Have this hooked up to a computer as well as all the standard video equipment and could not be more pleased with the units ability to intergrate everything. Still it all comes down to the picture and this set performs as well as any I have seen, the colors pop, the blacks are just that and the definition is outstanding. I would buy it again for every room if I could.
