Summary: I took it back and got a Panasonic 58S1 plasma for $800 less and so far have been very happy. I would recommend the LG Full LED 240Hz model which is usually cheaper over this one. It's not a bad TV, I just had a bad experience with it. I feel that gaming is a lot smoother on a Plasma.
Pros: Very thin, great picture, decent price. Paid $2400 at best buy, newegg has it cheaper.
Cons: 1. After 8 days of use, the TV screen went completely white, it would come back for a few minutes, then go out again. 2. Very limited ports, one component/composite shared, no VGA in or RCA audio out. 3. Because it is an LED edge-lighted screen, the light "spotlights" from the corners when the sc...
Summary: I gave this TV only 3 out of 5 eggs due to the fact that we all know Samsung(who sets the price) can sell it for way less and still profit. It's not a "bad" TV but it's not "Great" either.
Pros: picture quality is good for 120hz
Cons: lacks features of bigger brother, prices are a joke I have seen this TV for as little as 15hundred and as little as 17hundred on this site while its LED 240hz based cousin is only a mere 2 to 3 hundred more..., High failure rate...I know it sounds cliche but Google it.
Pros: Very good picture quality, very thin screen, light, easy to setup. 4 HDMI inputs. I've been very happy with the picture quality.
Cons: The optical audio output only produces PCM 2.0. I had an HDMI input with 5.1 audio, but the TV only sends out a 2.0 signal. Ideally I'd have all my HDMI inputs and not have to fuss with having each device hooked up to the sound system, only have the TV hooked up to it. But unlike with my old TV, ...
Summary: I got this Samsung UN55B6000 to replace a dead Sony KDL52W3000 that was just shy of 20 months old. For the price, it came down to this or the 52XBR9. I took the Samsung cause the picture looked sharper at the store and while still smarting from a Sony reliability issue.
Summary: Just adding some kinda-important notes about the UN55B6000 (actually the whole line of UNXXBXXXX LED backlit ultra thin Samsung TV's. A lot of folks will mention that the internal speakers are really crippled by the fact that the TV is so flat (the main speakers fire down and back from the left and...
Summary: I recently purchased this TV to replace a VIZIO plasma that lasted only 15 months long. First, it's very disappointing to learn that most, if not all, flat screens seem to be disposable in less than two years.
Summary: Great TV and was going to purchase but the TOC Red personally looks terrible and is a distraction to me. Decided to go with the UN55B8000. A slightly techcially advanced set, 240Hz vs 120Hz refresh and 2 ms pixel response time vs 4ms. TOC on the 8000 is Gray/Clear which IMO looks much better.
Summary: Like most of the reviews, I found the picture quality to be awesome. The only picture quality issue is automatic backlight adjustment during dark scenes. I notice it, and it bothers me a bit. I would like to turn it off somehow, but I have not figured out how to do that yet (if possible).
Summary: What's great about it: Light Weight, Looks Stunning, Great Features What's not so great: Off angle viewing, dark scene viewing, corners glowing, backlight is not uniform "I WISH I LOVED THIS TV! After being a plasma fan for years, I gave an LED-LCD a chance. Set-up was great. Features-a-plenty!
