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: 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: 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 purchased this model in May of 2011 as my first flat screen TV experience. It arrived about a week or so later and everything was going fine....until November. First, the picture went out. So I called Samsung, who promised to send a tech out since it was still under warranty. The tech asked if there was a crack in the screen, and after closely inspecting, I told her there was not. The next day the TV would not come on at all.
Summary: i bought this tv and i must say picture is great,but then i started to notice the brightness pops.called for tech support.he came out and said he didnt notice anything wrong,i showed him were the sceen went bright to dark,he said it was part of the show.you go to youtube and it shows the brightness pops writh the scene in motion.i dont no if the tech was lazy or if he didnt no about this problem.if you are buying this tv for the 3d,forget it,the brightness pops are to...
Summary: This TV delivers a great picture and it exceeds every expectation as far as picture. the blacks are black and the picture is crystal clear. plenty to customize. 2d to 3d conversion was cool. not like the real thig though. the 3d is cool if you get a big enough tv. Having said that I gave this TV 1/5 for the following reason...... there are several people my self included that have reported "brightness pops". just google it and you'll see.
