A Great TV But With Some Flaws
Larry H., Newegg
16 December 2013
Summary: I bought this TV directly from Samsung during a promotion that meant a VERY significant break on the price. I am now wondering if this was part of a batch of known problematic units that they were just dumping to get rid of them.
Pros: Excellent picture (always expected with Samsung), swivel stand. Internal speakers are acceptable, even if not outstanding. 2 USB ports; will accept a keyboard for input. 3D capability was the main selling point, plus I wanted to go a bit larger with screen size (this replaced a 50" model). Overal...
Cons: GENERAL CONS: No audio output (?). 3D requires active 3D glasses which require batteries, but the 3D effect is amazing! I have had several problems with this TV: NETWORK CONNECTION: The TV sits on a stand along with a Samsung Blu-Ray player and a game console. The player and the console connect t...
Cons: I have a 67" Samsung DLP TV that cost $2500. After warranty expired ( a very short 1 year) the TV developed white spots due to the failure of the DLP chip. Despite an overwhelming number of customers with the same problem Samsung refuses to address the problem even though they did a secret recall...
Summary: I'm always reluctant to give things "5 stars", but this TV definitely delivers. Is it perfect? No? Are there better TVs? Of course. However, this TV is not only a great performer overall, it is also a great value.
Netfix now works on TV after working with poor customer service.

Summary: I have the latest firmware and spent many hours with Samsung Customer support, they cannot get Netflix to work. They claim it is a known issue with their server and it will be fixed in 24 hours. Issue has now been escalated to tier 2. Technical support is weak.
Summary: After weeks of research, this was the TV I decided on and once again, Amazon.com had the best price. I have had the TV for almost a month without difficulties. Local Third-party Shipping company was understaffed, driver was unable to lift the box by himself, so I had to assist in getting the TV into...
Summary: PN60E550 review I am the most satisfied 4 star rater ever. The three star rating means two things: One: I really like the unit and am satisfied with my purchase Two: There are things about the unit that limit it from being the best.
Summary: Overall, the TV earns 5 eggs from me. I did not find a single rotten egg in the box. The fact that the TV hums comes with the territory of Plasma technology. I can say definitely that the issue is much better then in the past.
Pros: *Great quality picture as always from Samsung. *Even on basic cable, HD channels come through crystal clear. *TV came with a pair of 3D glasses. *The apps feature is rich and works good. *Fast built in WIFI allows for smooth Netflix. *Xbox 360 looks great with minimal to no ghosting.
Cons: Right out of the box, I heard an audible buzz or humm if you will from the tv. This is inherent with Plasma's. I knew this issue going into this purchase. The buzz quickly gets faded out when any amount of sound comes from the tv and quickly turns into white noise that I can't even tell is there ...
