Summary: Purchased this tv about 2 1/2 years ago. It started to get verticle multi color tight lines all the way across the picture. We had to giggle hdmi cords or slightly bump the top corner to clear picture. We called a Samsung service man, he came did a lot of tests and informed us would not be worth the money to fix the TV. It was the board that controls the color and it was just breaking down.
Summary: I have personally owned this model for almost 4 years and haven't had a problem. Being a gamer I use this set a LOT. It has survived 4 moves, not including initial delivery. That proves a lot for the durability of the item to me. This will read multiple types of video files directly from a hard drive. I have found that you can plug up to a 2 TB hard drive directly into it and play .avi, .mkv, and .mpeg formats. I hope this helps.
Summary: I purchased a Samsung 55" LCD TV (Model No. LN55C630K1F) less than 3 years ago at Bestbuy.com. Recently, the TV's screen has become flickering. I have had a few rounds of communications with Samsung customer service. I pointed out that the problem was apparently a manufacturing defect and the TV should be recalled. In the end, I got Samsung's response of "the issue is considered not a manufacturing defect.
Less than 100 hours on this set and the screen flickers like a strobe light if on more 10 mins.

Summary: Bought this as a second tv in our non primary viewing room. This panel still has less than 100 hours on it and the screen flickers so bad that its gonna give me a seizure! Picture was excellent the few hours it worked. Its Utter garbage though. It's out of warranty so Samsung wont fix it for free!
Summary: My husband and I have had this TV for about 2 years now. It was purchased originally as a black Friday deal. The picture is fantastic, with very vibrant colors. The only complaint is that in very dark scenes, it is hard to see sometimes, but it may be that way on all TVs. The sound quality is great in action movies and TV shows. We have thought about getting surround sound speakers but the sound from the TV itself is just fine.
Beautiful picture after adjustment. Not for heavy lit rooms.

Summary: Initially I found this TV while shopping around at Wal-Mart. The Samsung model was setup next to comparable Sony and LG TV's of the same size. In my opinion the picture on the Samsung was noticeably better than either of the competitors. I noticed the richer colors and better contrast, so I was sold on the Samsung model. Rather than buying from Wal-Mart I went online to find the best price, and pulled the trigger.
Summary: One of the simplest tests for how good a high-definition picture looks is if it makes viewers feel like they're looking through a window instead of a TV screen. The LN55C630 is the closest I've come to that experience. I was looking to upgrade my 2008 model Samsung LN46A550 with a new set with a larger screen size and a higher contrast ratio. Having had a good experience with the A550, I was inclined towards getting another Samsung but also considered Sony's Bravia TVs.
Summary: Before I get into this particular item, let me just say that I was deciding between this TV and a 46" LED at a similar price point. I ultimately chose size over picture quality and let me tell you- I have ZERO regrets! While researching this item I came across many complaints about the glossy screen and the glare associated with said glossy screen.
Summary: Bought this TV in June. Got it fine but of all of things not to be right - the actual stand. There are two different types and they have the wrong one in the box. Hard to believe but without the right stand, cannot stand it up to watch. Called customer service and told them the issue. They said no problem and they needed the TV info (serial #, etc.)and they would send the "other" type. Sent them the info waited the 2 weeks they said it would take.
