I bought a lemon

Summary: I purchased my Samsung UN40D5550RFXZA at Sams Club back in January of 2012. Within the first year the screen started to get bright red spots. I called Samsung and they sent someone out to fix it. Three months later the sound went out of the TV once again called Samsung and they sent someone out to fix it. Four months later now I have a huge black line down the middle of the TV.
Summary: I bought this led tv at Bj's at a very good clearance floor model price. The picture was clear, crisp and sharp in the store and just as good once I got it home. I was a little unsure about the 60Hz thinking I would see a blur with quick movement but I noticed none. One thing that I really liked is that it's easy on the electric usage. Something like $9. a year with using 5 hours a day. In my house it's on all day and we have had no problems at all.
Summary: I was looking for a television with the following parameters: - between 36" - 42" diagonal length, - LED back-lighting (very thin form factor), - 120Hz refresh rate, - name brand, - immediate availability. I found this set by Samsung, and even though the refresh rate was only 60Hz, it appeared to be the one that best fit my requirements. There was cheaper model from Philips that offered 120Hz refresh rate, but it would take 2-3 weeks to deliver.
Summary: After much deliberation as to what size TV to purchase, I decided on the 40" because of the size of the room. As always, I made my purchase through Amazon. The order, shipment and the TV were perfect. Easy installation, great picture. I now own three Samsung TV's, all purchased through Amazon. What more can I say?
brightness uniformity issues and annoying auto-dimming
27 December 2011
Summary: I was excited to get this TV for Christmas, but that excitement faded pretty quickly. Pros: -thin -light -bright -relatively (compared to plasmas) miserly power consumption -(mostly) aesthetically pleasing (aside from the "touch of color," which is red in this case) Cons: -auto-dimming "feature": Out of the box, this tv seems to have good blacks, but the only way this is achieved is through automatically dimming the backlight when a dark scene is on the screen.
Summary: I'm a big fan of Samsung LED displays whether it's a TV, smart phone, or tablet. I spent several weeks researching different Samsung models to determine a model to purchase. I decided on the 5500 because of its combination of features and price. I wanted a TV that was equally pleasant to observe as a PC monitor or TV. The Samsung did not disappoint. As a PC monitor it displays up to 1920X1080 resolution.
Summary: I'm not very TV savy, but watching it, the image is crystal clear. Almost as if it was 3D or as if you are watching people in person. The only issue I had was it didn't come with the screws that allows you to mount the TV. Seller was very helpful in sending me some, but they still weren't the correct ones.
Summary: I am by no means a TV expert. Like many people, I read a few reviews and thought this was a good price. I have had the TV now a couple months and it seems great; picture, sharpness, contrast, quality, sound (I am no audiophile though!). It was relatively easy to set up. Pretty much plug and play, even though I got turned around once or twice. The instructions were pretty clear, but left out 1 or 2 little things.
