Pros: A great picture--very, very good. Sound is OK, but not great.
Cons: Here is the kicker and a real con. We purchase the TV from big box store (will not do that again) and were very happy for the first two years and four months. Then the flickering started. Research with CNET and internet searches revealed that there is a problem with the power unit and that the ca...
Summary: After returning a Plasma to Tiger Direct due to glare, I found a great deal on this LCD from Amazon. I was weary at first because of the low price but this is a solid. LCD. It does everything we ask of it. It displays a solid HD picture and sd is ok. 98% of what we watch is HD so it doesnlt matter.
Summary: I reviewed/compared more TVs than I can count and I kept coming back to this one (the LN55C630). I went into Best Buy and saw all the TVs on their wall. I walked down the line checking the picture quality of each 50" or larger that they had. One stood out among the rest.
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.
Summary: After reading all the reviews and doing a fair amount of research,this was the one TV to buy! The picture quality is far superior to ANY other I have seen and others have told me the same. Thought maybe the 55" was too big for my small house,but not so.
Summary: OK - so I spent weeks comparing TVs - LCD, LED, Plasma. I was replacing a 52inch DLP. So here's the skinny. I love this TV. The picture is simply amazing. Sound is adequate (but I have a surround system when I want good sound). The only problem is as described in the pictures and other reviews.
Samsung is Notorious Backlight / Screen Flickering after 1.5 years.

Summary: Samsung buys cheap components from China to assemble many portions of the TV. Backllight, power supplies, and capacitors have a high potential of going out in 1 to 2 years. Research online before you buy. Samsung has a problem with Screen strobing/flickering.
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.
Summary: Great television! I have not seen any LED HD's that deliver the picture quality that this one does. As for the glossiness of the screen, I have that problem, too. Solution: purchase a wall mount that can angle the television forward.
