Summary: I owned this TV for a little over one week, and found the following: First the good: Like most Plasma TV's the shadow detail on the TV is quite good. The color too looks nice. Strangely the default setting out of the box looks rather bad. One has to tweak the TV before getting a nice image. The 3D works without problems. The 2D to 3D conversion, in fact, works stunningly well. The bad: Like all Plasma TV's the D550 suffers from image retention.
"beautiful picture but a major flaw, random bright flash"

Pros: A handsome, easy to set up tv, with great picture.
Cons: There are random bright flashes on the tv. It happens with both dvd and satelite inputs. There are quite a few posts in various discussion boards about the problem. If Samsung can not fix this, the tv is going back, despite its many good features.
