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
Summary: Don't do it.... it's highly overrated, and the supporting technology isn't there yet. It's been a pain since I purchased it in Feb of 2014 and Samsung support needs some help it's either hit or miss!
Excerpt: The remote control will not work properly with my Cable box. A,B,C,D buttons don't work. Info button changes channel. Samsung do not provide a way to use a cable box remote to control the TV - even for power on, volume and mute. All picture settings are terribly over saturated. None of the Smart features work as described. It takes about a minute for the computer to warm up enough for STB buttons to work - seems broken for 60 secs.
Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control, Difficult To Set Up, Poor Image Quality, Poor Sound Quality
Excerpt: I bought this because my local cable provider changed the delivery of several stations in my package so that I couldn't receive them with my old set. My choices were to either rent a cable box from them or purchase a new TV. I went with the latter because I prefer not to give the cable company any more of my money especially since they didn't offer to reduce the price of my cable package because my old TV couldn't decode those channels even though I was paying for them.
