TV cannot be used if remote is damaged or lost...

Summary: We actually love the TV...we got this to replace out previous plasma that developed lines in the screen after four year. Definitely a learning curve with the remote and all of the features though! I gave this one only three stars because we discovered that the TV is totally useless without said remote ( our dog ate it ).
Low quality, avoid buying Samsung, cheap parts don't last.

Summary: Bought this two years ago, it has died already. Not what I would have expected from what I thought was a company that made quality products. Searched the internet, bad capacitors, bad transistors, there are forums full of issues with Samsung TVs. Low quality product, will not buy Samsung again.
Summary: Have owned Plasmas and LCD tvs. People are always concerned about plasma and their burn in or image retention. I can say this TV not only offers an amazing value for 3d, smart tv, great picture but I have not experianced any burn in and no imiage retention. I am not too worried with the smart tv because I don't use it, but from what I have used it worked just fine. The 3d is great on this tv. For the price of this tv you can not go wrong with this set.
Summary: My samsung plasma tv was great for the first year until it completely lost its picture. It started as one corner being black then it spread across the entire screen. I purchased the best buy extended warranty and am still waiting for someone to actually come to my house and look at it. If you are spending money thinking this tv will last a long time then samsung is not the brand for you!
Summary: I have been very disappointed in my Samsung TV. I had owned a Panasonic plasma but, when it finally conked out after 6 years, I wanted to replace it with something I thought would be better. I went to the big Samsung store in Columbus Circle (NYC) and decided to order this one after talking with one of the workers there. The focus of our conversation was reliability.
Summary: Awsome TV!! This is the best TV I have ever Owned hands down Period!!! The colors just blow you away compared to my LCD and LED TV's!! Best and Most TV for well under a Grand. Highly Recommended!! Apps Galore as well.
Summary: Looking at my other reviews you will argree that I am not easy to please. And I do understand a thing or two about image quality, display technology, image processing algorithms, and so on (it's what I deal with for a living). I say that only in order to emphasize how amazing this TV really is. PROS: As they say in real estate - location, location, location. With TVs it's for me picture quality, picture quality, picture quality.
Summary: This is my first samsung TV and I am really disappointed both on TV and customer service I am getting. Samsung 550D plasma have lot of features which I really liked and design was very good. But what good are features and designs if it's not working after 4 months of moderate use. In the first month I saw immage retention which was cleared away after running some burn in images. Now TV simply wont turn on and just make the clicking sound.
Summary: I was in the market for a TV and I knew I wanted at least 4 things: 1080p, 120Hz+, 50+ inches, and it had to be either a Samsung or a Sony (I prefer Samsung because they just OWN the screen scene!). I had debated back and forth with constant research between an LED and a Plasma (LCD's just seem to have too much lag and miss the mark with deep, natural colors). LED's are amazing...truly! BUT it just seems a little too colorful and cartoonish for me.
Summary: This is one of the happiest purchases I have made. The picture quality on this tv is extremely good...to the point that you can see when someone's makeup looks too thick or whatever. The sound is very good and overall the tv looks really nice and operates to expectation. The company selling it is also wonderful. We ordered this set in early March and when it arrived the glass was completely shattered.
