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: I can't say enough about how amazing this tv is to me. I have Time Warner Cable and can use this without the cable box for on demand and channels not normally available without a box. The picture is crisp and clear. The sound is great. I'm super happy with this purchase. I would recommend this tv. Apps are preloaded, you can add more and it has a full browser. I really haven't utilized the browser but have played around with it a little.
Summary: And the 2nd one works! I ordered this TV about a week ago, received the first one in a few days and set it up. All was well except for one very thin red line on the right side that went from top to bottom. I called Amazon, they walked me through some things to see if we could fix it, but it never went away. Although I was disappointed, Amazon is awesome! In less than 20 minutes, the man helping me sent a return address label (free) and ordered me a new one.
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!
