Summary: I purchased UN55B8000 on Feb 14th, 2010 after my old Samsumg DLP HDTV stopped working after 5 years. The life of these HDTVs is lot shorter than that of old CRT TVs. Anyway, the picture quality is good, it depends on so many factors, whether it is 1080 or 720, compressed or uncompressed, TV channel,...
Summary: If you are looking for a 55 inch screen, look no further than this model! This is exactly what the doctor ordered. Clear LCD, 240 speed and it is just beautiful on the wall. Hook this baby up with surround sound and you have a home theater than is affordable as well as beautiful to look at.
Summary: Overall, I am really happy with the UN55B8000. It has great picture quality in colors and contrast and we're having fun with the internet feature. The TV is surprisingly thin, and came with a substantial stand (which we're not using).
Summary: This TV is amazing. The home theater company that came to install this TV (had some fancy wiring to do, specific to my install over the fireplace) recommended it, but could not stop watching it once we got it hooked up. Watching golf in HD...you see the blades of grass.
Awesome TV - Get it without the DLNA / Internet if possible

Summary: November, 2011 update: I lowered my rating from 4 stars to 2 stars because my set has developed a dark smudgy area on the left half of the screen. For a while I noticed these blemishes while watching the news and I thought the screen or news anchors were dirty.
