Excerpt: Great resolution but the colors seem dark. Set up instruction was a bit confusing but we got it up eventually. Also, signal receptor is weak and often gets bumped out of On Demand on Time Warner. I dont know if this is TWC's or the equipment's fault.
Pros: Best looking TV out there, Great Sound Quality
Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control, Difficult To Set Up, Glare, Poor Reception / Weak Antenna
Summary: The goods: The sound is good, the picture is very good. The Bad: The web browser needs lots of improvement and please try to do less with the stupid Advertisement for other companies. Too much advertisement in the remote control too. i.e Amazon and Netflix. It should be an option for your customer not to force it on us!
Decent, but some apps crash and it has some other shortcomings.

Summary: This TV has a good picture and was a good value (I bought it refurbished) but I do note a few complaints: (1) There are no controls on the TV, so without the remote you can't change the volume, channel or anything else); (2) The audio output is only a 3.5 mm socket, no RCAs, and it is not variable, so if you plug it into an amp you can't use the TV to change the volume on the amp; (3) There is some "flashlighting," where in very dark or black scenes you can see some...
Summary: Let me start by saying I'm a former employee of Samsung. I know they make incredible electronics, I've seen the glowing customer reviews on samsung.com, I've owned quite a few of their products and loved them, but this TV is not meeting expectations. I'm also a web marketer by trade and have a background in internet tech support. I'm tech savvy and I know what I'm doing. First, the good parts. The picture is great. Set up is easy.
Summary: The tv is fine good picture and sound etc, but beware when using the smart features i found it very hard to navigate without a keyboard so i went and got one. The only trouble is that it didnt work so i rang samsung and they told me the keyboard isnt compatable so i asked them which one is and they told me that they dont make one which is wireless? whats the point in buying a new tv that dosnt have this feature.
Summary: I recently bought a Samsung F5000 46" on Amazon. I was very happy with the TV except for the lack of connections. Therefore, I decided to 'upgrade' to the 46" F5500 for the extra hdmi port and additional smart functions. Being a 5 series I expected the picture quality to be the same if not better than the F5000's. However, I was amazed to find that HD channels were in fact less sharp and the colours over saturated.
