Design Flaw? Annoying and Distracting Click When Adjusting Volume. No RCA Audio Out to Accomodate Hearing Devices

Summary: The set has fantastic resolution and the price compares very favorably with comparable products. The customer service representatives are very courteous but perhaps not as knowledgeable of the product as they could be. I had to contact the audio device manufacturer to learn how to possibly accomodate the "TV Ears" product. This TV does not offer an audio out with standard RCA.
Summary: I will start out saying that I love this tv, the picture is amazing and it's a bargain at this price. But there's a few things to keep in mind and my reason for giving it 3 stars... The glare is horrible , you almost need a completely dark room My biggest concern and i understand it happens but mine fried 1 month out of the box, worst part is , it takes more than a week to get it repaired.
Summary: Can't understand why this TV is so highly rated, instead of an average rating, which it fairly deserves. Don't get me wrong, it has a GREAT picture, for both 2D and 3D. The apps are great, and overall it's definitely a good value for the price. However, there is one serious flaw. The TV buzzes very noticeably. I know all plasmas buzz to some degree, but this one is louder than most, or at least does so at a higher frequency that is more noticeable.
Pros: VERY easy set up. I am EXTREMELY serious in saying a child could set this TV up (aside from the heavy lifting) and this includes the networking portion. Very user friendly. Amazing quality. 3D works like a breeze. The stand they made for this TV is really nice. Made out of solid glass rather than the cheap squeaky stands you usually get.
Cons: A VERY annoying buzz. Even with the anti-interference plugs/tools they give you, it doesn't help. This is enough of a reason to give this TV 3/5 due to the fact I paid $1,300 for it and you think they would have put a little more effort into interference cancellation in their cords. Cheap call on Samsung's part.
Summary: The product photo for these TVs (the 550 series) shows a matte, anti-reflective screen. This is misleading. The 550 series does NOT feature an anti-reflective screen. It has no anti-reflective coating at all. It is as reflective as glass, and consequently not the best choice for rooms with windows. Amazon's product description for the 550 series is identical to its description for the next model up (the 6500 series).
Summary: I was a bit disappointed in waiting for nearly 2 weeks to receive the TV (shipping + delivery scheduling). But shipping was free, and it's a good price. I was initially blown away by the picture quality. Pandora on BluRay was fantastic. However the unit has a significant buzzing sound when viewed anywhere from 4 to 12 feet directly on center and level with the set (ideal viewing position).
Summary: As others have mentioned, this set seems to have a problem with a buzzing sound. I got a set that was a "buzzer." I live on the third floor in a 1 bedroom apartment. I am not sure if that is why my buzz was particulary loud, but I could hear the buzzing from 13ft. away from TV with the volume of tv on 15. That is not acceptable for me so I had to regretfully return it.
