Love this TV more than I thought I would
9 September 2012
Excerpt: My husband kept bugging me to get a flat panel tv ever since the first day they hit the market. I was hesitant because we already have multiple TV's in the house that worked just fine, so in my mind I thought it was a waste of money to get one. Well a few months back while I was watching the news our main tv started to go on the fritz. So off we went to the electronics stores. We looked at a lot of TVs but the Samsung LN46B550 seemed to have what we wanted. It was...
Excerpt: my wife has been demanding me to buy a new set since it hit the market. We bought the TV set in july and it has been working for eight months with no problem. we have tested every function with remote control and found no problem at all. the color is distinct and the picture is discernable. the good thing is you can connect your pc and psp or dvd to the tv and experience the large screen.
Excerpt: First of all, I might be the unfortunated fews who has gotten a defective unit. One year during the time I have this TV, I have had it broke down 3 times, fortunately all covered under the warranty. But it's still a pain to call customer service and request a technician to come in and fix it. All three times were the same issue, they just replace the board in the TV and call it good. They will not let me have another unit. In term of feature, this TV seem to have it all.
Summary: I have been looking to replace my Fujitsu 42" plasma that was 5 years old. Embarrassed to say what I paid, but this Samsung blows that one away. For $1k this is a great product. The unit gives a clear crisp picture. Built in speakers are plenty for the bedroom. if you would want in a theatre room, you need to add external speakers. My only complaint is that it takes about 30 seconds for the picture to come on when you turn it on.
Summary: I've had this TV for just under a week now and am very pleased with it. The picture is great. Set up and connections were easy and straight forward - it was up and running within 15 minutes. Easily connect to a Sony Blu-Ray player and older Sony Home Theater system. One note: if you use HDMI cable, some cable boxes require you go into thier settings and turn on the HDMI connection - otherwise you'll get a picture but no sound.
Summary: Have looked at large screen TVs for long time; have always been impressed with the Samsung picture quality when seem in stores side-by-side other TVs. Samsumg always had the best/sharpest picture in my opinion. Very easy to mount with a universal wall kit. The first one received via Amazon was damaged but the replacement they shipped was received within 3-4 days so it wasn't a signficant loss.
