Excerpt: As of 11/16/2010, this television is now in its 3rd generation (C series, this one is A) and I still love it to this day. I love the swivel stand that Samsung implements on almost all their televisions which I don't understand why other manufacturers do not follow suit. I don't need 120hz, because I hate the soap opera effect. I don't need internet apps because I don't want to buy the $50 wifi adapter (I can use my blu ray player with wifi built in).
Excerpt: I purchased this tv back in April 2009 as I was wanting to go from a tube TV to a BIG screen. I liked the 46, but still wanted it bigger and the 52 inch is perfect sized. Great for watching day to day tv, and the fact that it's 60hz doesn't slow this tv down. Performs great, and gives you a stunningly clear picture. I've got the Playstation 3 hooked up for games, Netflix, Blu-Ray, and using with my home network.
Excerpt: I purchased my Samsung LN52A550 52 in. HDTV LCD TV about 2 years ago and have not regretted a single moment. It was a little pricey when I bought it but it was worth it at the time to get my first big screen TV. I love how it swivels from right to left according to which side of the room everyone is positioned. The picture is always clear. The picture in picture is very easy to use and has a beautiful picture, while the 52 inch screen allows for both sides to be seen.
Summary: This TV stopped working after less than 2 years. Unfortunately, the warranty is only 1 year. I expect something this expensive to last longer. It had a beautiful picture while it worked. After calling Samsung technical support, they requested service from a local repair company to diagnose what was wrong. There was no response from that company for 2 weeks; so I called Samsung again.
For know don't buy,But for me it was the value for my money.

Summary: Good size Little bit heavy.one person can not carry,the picture quality not great.sound is great.If you are looking for something more entertaining please go for something else. #As per the picture quality,am still not sure whether am the one not using the high definition receiver. OK in 2 weeks time am upgrading my receiver and more review will follow.
Summary: This product is defective and Samsung does not want to fix it. I bought it on August, 2008 paying $1,829. It did not work due to blown capacitor on September, 2010. One capacitor was replaced by a free service but again other two capacitors were blown off on one day of March, 2012. Samsung sent a technician to replace capacitors on power board but TV was not turned on. After a week the technician brought a new power board unit but it was a defective one.
Summary: First of all, Samsung has something that avsforum has been referring to as "the panel lottery". Basically, while they are still within Samsung specs, the underlying panels are made by varying manufacturers, and with differing results. The largest complaints about this monitor center around their "local dimming". It turns out that yes, Samsung has a competition crushing display, but not when you are looking at even slightly dark scenes.
Summary: I purchased this TV here on Amazon. After four months it broke down. I called customer service and they issued a repair order. That was 7 days ago and I still do not have an appointment for the fix. The local repair company Samsung hired ''had ZERO interest in fixing my TV. I found out they didn't even get around to ordering parts for three days. And Samsung will not FedEx parts.
Summary: Well, today my tv died. it's been almost 3 years for this piece of rubbish. I liked the TV alot but the Tv repairman (didn't know they still existed) came today and said i had a screen panel defect and there was nothing he could do about it. Better off buying a new one. So I paid about $1700 for almost three years worth of a tv. really not worth it in my mind.
