Summary: Everyone I know that owns a Samsung flat screen has had zero problems with them over the years. My friends who opted for the Wally World brands .. well .. they didn't fare so well. BUT THEY STILL SHELL OUT FOR THOSE CHEAP SETS! Some people will never learn I suppose.
Pros: I bought this TV in September of 2009. Almost 5 years later and the TV is still flawless and have never given me a problem. Samsung, you have a life long customer with HDTVs.
Summary: The remote is huge (not a problem once you get used to it) and has a button for illuminating all the others, very nice! I got this during Black Friday last year for under $650, what a steal!
Pros: Beautiful picture! Solid construction and base, lots and lots of ports, very stylish. I've had zero problems with this television, no technical issues, dead pixels, nada. The menus are easy to use and intuitive.
Cons: The front buttons aren't really buttons, they're the new touch-sensitive areas that pass as buttons.

Pros: First of all it was purchased on Newegg, just on another persons account. Just overall a great tv. Works great as a pc monitor, in fact I'm using it now. The clear and red trim makes it look like and LED tv. I bought this open box and everything came with it (except the remote batteries).
Cons: not really a con but there is a few scratches and scuffs on the trim but that's what i get for buying and open box item. Also the buttons on the front of the screen can be very hard to see.
Summary: This is my second ToC. First was a T240HD, which is still great as a computer monitor. Can't beat the big size, though. Newegg is definitely a trusted seller in my book, but I opted to purchase the TV locally, to avoid any potential for shipping damages.
Pros: For the price, you can't beat this TV. Crisp picture and great color. Plenty of HDMI inputs. Normally TV speakers are pretty bad. The ones are this model are what I would call acceptable.
Summary: I needed to replace a defective Magnovox TV (32" LCD flat screen) so choose this Samsung LN40B550 40" 1080p LCD HDTV with Red Touch of Color. I started researching different brands of TV's, read reviews (very helpful), shopped prices and finally decided on this Samsung model.
