Beautiful picture and smart

Excerpt: The picture is great. Also, the smart TV features are convenient to use. I did have to disable the auto dimming feature as it would dim the TV too much. I suspect the problem is related to the fact that I have the TV in an entertainment center. Otherwise setting up the TV was trivial. The CAT7 (rated for 10 Gbps) cable requirement if using the ethernet port is overkill. Any Cat5 (100 Mbps) or better works fine.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote Control, Great Picture Quality, LED-backlit, Smart TV
Excerpt: Bought this TV to fit a cabinet in a small family room. It fits the space perfectly and is a great TV for the location. After some minor tweaking (of brightness, mostly) the picture quality is excellent. The sound, however is awful. If you buy this TV be prepared to also buy a soundbar (I did) or hook it up to your HT. Also, the remote won't synch with my U-verse box or the Visio soundbar I bought.
Pros: Great Picture Quality
Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control, Poor Sound Quality
Excerpt: I don't have cable, so paid extra for "smart" TV functionality with Wifi built-in and hoping that I can broadcast my laptop onto TV w/o wires. Well, that "smart" functionality is limited to apps that are installed on the TV (mostly commercial services, like Netflix, Amazon, etc) and the only way that I found so far that the TV can broadcast PC is through reading directly photo or video files (which means you can't just mirror the screen).
Excerpt: This is a great TV, but I was disappointed that it is not compatible with Comcast to get Xfinity on it. (My fault for not looking into it before I bought it- I just assumed I could get most apps on it) That was one of the main reasons I wanted a SmartTV so I could stream my network shows. Bummer, but it's still great for Netflix, WWE network, etc. Not the "thinnest" TV, but great picture- I'll never buy another TV that isn't Samsung!
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote Control, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound Quality
Cons: Not Comcast Compatible, Not Xfinity Compatible
Excerpt: Let me begin with praise for B&H Photo -- their expedited delivery service is exceptional. B&H is the best retailer online and in a physical store.Now, about the Samsung H5500 … the base stand for the TV comes in two plastic pieces and requires assembly. It's done with screws threaded into plastic … cheap, flimsy plastic. We have concerns whether such a stand will endure.The "Smart" setup lacks intuitiveness and logic.
Pros: Energy Efficient, Good picture quality, LED-backlit, Reduced Glare
Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control, Difficult To Set Up, Poor Connection Options, Poor Sound Quality
