Summary: Bought this 3 years ago for a huge discount, one of the best purchases in a while. Pro: Good for gaming once you turn on "gaming mode" which gets rid of the post processing frames. Great for movies/shows, post processing work is amazing. Small bezel is VERY catching. Lots of inputs Streaming over smart TV works pretty well, actually I use it over my Xbox Con: Apps for Smart TV are lacking, and over most of them are....unnecessary?
Summary: When I purchased this TV last year it took me at least a month to get used to look, feel and motion of the picture. This is of course after I used the recommended settings from AVS for picture quality. One year later I am still impressed with how sharp and solid this tv has performed. This is my second Samsung tv and my first 3d tv with Smart TV apps.
Pros: Sharp picture quality, great appsa nd features with Samsung Smart TV service
Cons: Blacks are not the best out there, learning curve
Summary: This is most awful tv we've ever owned! From day one the remote didn't work. Samsung made us jump through hoop after hoop and pushed back on replacing the remote even though it was brand new and $2000. Finally they promised to send a new one. It never arrived. Incredibly they made us give our credit card number and have us go to the post office to send the old one back before they would agree to send a new one. We did, and THEY STILL NEVER SENT A REPLACEMENT REMOTE!
Summary: So far I like this TV. The picture from a high definition source is excellent. The picture from a standard definition source is not quite as good as the CRT set it replaced. I have not tried 3D or netflix, but it has a free movie app (about 150 titles) that works well. The most annoying thing about the TV is that the name Samsung just below the screen is very bright as is the white light just below the name. In a darkened room they shine in your eyes like a searchlight.
Summary: This television is beautiful, both on and off. For about two years I have heard person after person complain about the dreaded "soap opera" effect from tv's with 120 or 240 fps. Having had a Sony XSRD 60 inch for the past four years, I was in no rush to get another tv, but I finally decided to go with the 55 inch UND8000, and I now kick myself I didn't do it last year. I know that some people think the tv looks "too real", but I love the realistic nature of the image.
Amazing. Great investment, hope it holds me over until the OLED tvs are released.

Summary: I am thoroughly impressed with the product. Outside of the fact that there is no amazon prime for this device, it works well. I had trouble in the beginning and had to call amazon customer service for a new one. There was a dead pixel spot on my screen that didn't show any picture. I called amazon about the flaw and they gave me a new tv in exchange for the old one. Amazon's customer service is amazing and I have no real complaints about the tv or amazon.
Summary: I was a little worried about purchacing this tv after reading a few negative reviews. The tv was a gift for my husband, who is a tv buff, and I wanted to get the best one possible on my budget. Long story short... He loves it!! It was everything he wanted and more. I am very pleased that I made the decision to get this one over the others. 5 stars!!
Summary: OK, So far everything is good! Picture is great, sound is great. I don't see any lines or cloudiness or any of the stories being told here. I changed my settings on the TV, bought new category 2 HDMI cables and set up all devices for higher definition. I personally think that a lot of people in this forum don't know how to connect and set up this TV and blame it on the set rather than the connections.
