Summary: Purchased this as a christmas gift, but after only 3 months, 1 horizontal and 1 vertical line of dead pixels appears on the screen. I tried contacting Samsung but they keep giving me the run around, sending me back to the same trouble-shooting steps on their website that I've run through a hundred times already. I guess I'll just keep trying, until I can get in touch with someone who will actually listen to me.
Avoid Samsung, they do not stand behind their products

Summary: I have purchased many Samsung products and have been very happy with them. However, as I learned with this TV, if one has a problem, Samsung does not back their products with service. I have spent hours on the phone with Samsung, have been handed off from one person to the next, each time I am told to try something else and to call back if the problem still exists.

Summary: Still figuring out the nuances of this product, but so far I really enjoy the bells and whistles. I'm streaming content wirelessly from my laptop which I really like and I've given up on XXXXXXXX XXXXXX.
Summary: Overall, I am disappointed in the picture quality but very pleased with the "smart" features. I would have said 3 and 1/2 stars if I knew how. I am disappointed with the picture quality but very pleased with the "smart" features. I have adjusted the picture as suggested by several online reviewers who use tools and science to optimize the variables. I have tried 4 or 5 recommended settings, and done some tinkering of my own.
Summary: I had not bought a.new TV in years. My old TV was a NEC that I loved. It had been in storage 4 about 3 years and unfortunately the sound was gone. So the hunt was on. The Samsung is great. The technology in this machine was unbelievable. I just love it. It's the best marriage of computer and TV.
Summary: This tv has exceeded all my expectations. The picture is exceptional as expected from Samsung and it is very light and slim as well, but what has really impressed me is how it interacts with my cable service provider and simplifies finding upcoming shows and such. It also has Netflix, Amazon Prime on the remote, and HBO GO directly on the user interface. 5/5.
Summary: Everything I heard about the 5500 series from Samsung was spot on. The color and clarity is outstanding. The base and angle of swivel keep the light weight Flat Screen in a solid position. with all the extra features such as the 3 HDMI ports and wireless Internet along with its plug and play capabilities this set is worth the money going away!
