Summary: I bought this in June of 2011, and it's still great! I know most reviews are posted after a few days or weeks of owning, but I can tell you I am still very happy to this day. The color is great, the picture quality is excellent, and the sound is clear. I do wish that it had apps for streaming Netflix or Amazon. When I first bought it I wasn't into the whole streaming thing yet, but since then I have and I can appreciate the convenience of having that functionality.
Summary: Bought on November 20th 2011, died on February 20th, 2012. Lasted all of 3 months. Was sitting in front of the TV watching it when the thing just died. 100% unresponsive with no LED indicator. Heard some buzzing noises when unplugging the TV and plugging it back in. Will update review depending on how samsung responds to my issue, wrote this entire review waiting on the "NOW PROCESSING" claim form on their website to submit! Edit: Sent techs out to fix the TV...
Summary: OK! As well known, Samsung TVs and products well outbeat "sony" for the latter decade as a "competitors"! Sony went into movie production business, giving up whole line of consumer electronics to "labor camp number...? in "people's republic", in disregard of quality and replacement parts avialability. Samsung: still making all those boards for any plasma TVs, sold world wide, still any parts avialable for everyone, etc.
Summary: Beautiful tv, great picture, very nice 3D. BUT, within 3 weeks of purchase, vertical line of pixels went out on screen. Easy call to samsung, recognized problem, gave no hassle under warranty. Sent technician to house, replaced entire front panel on site. I wasn't present for repair, can't even tell he did something to the TV. Debated returning item for refund, but glad I gave them a chance.
Summary: I'VE HAD THIS SET FOR ABOUT A WEEK AND AM VERY PLEASED SO FAR. THE PICTURE IS OUTSATANDING AND THE 3D IS ALSO GREAT, I HAVE A PASSIVE 3D SET TOO AND LOVE THAT BUT THIS 3D BEATS IT. THIS SET DOES SUFFER FROM THE REPORTED BRIGHTNESS POPS BUT IT DOESN'T BOTHER ME ENOUGH TO COMPLAIN ABOUT IT. I HAVE NOTICED IT A FEW TIMES WHILE WATCHING BLURAYS BUT MY WIFE DID NOT NOTICE IT AT ALL BECAUSE IT HAPPENS SO FAST.
Excellet Picture and lots of calibration settings to control to your liking

Summary: A little background of my prior television ownership (so you know what my comparisons will be against): 1) Samsung 30" SlimFit CRT HDTV since 2006 2) upgraded to an LG 32" LED LCD HDTV (32LE5300) at the beginning of May, 2011 3) upgraded to this television at the beginning of December, 2011 Pros: This television simply looks amazing when viewing high definition content. The screen is crystal clear and the colors are great.
Summary: I love everything about this TV except for one thing, it buzzes! If you are standing directly in front of it you can hear it even over regular TV volume. Also, the built in speakers kind of sound like you are in a tin can. I purchased a sound bar system to replace them and the difference is night and day.
Summary: Let me start off by saying, I don't always review products I have purchased, but when I do, they have usually blown my mind. The PN59D550 is no exception, Mind = Blown. I bought this TV November 19, 2011 and I've had ample time to get a feel for the set. This is my review. I spent months on the internet doing research on Plasma vs LCD/LED and decided on Plasma for my needs (moderate gaming, lots of movie watching).
