the samsung led tv in my opinion has the best pictureon the mark
23 September 2012
Excerpt: I have been comparing tvs for purchase. I want the best that there is in terms of picture quality. The Samsung 55" led tv has the best specs of all lcd tvs. So it is technically the best picture you can get. There are basically three spects to look for in a tv. One is if it is full hdtv. in other words 1080. you want to avoid a tv rated at 720 The samsung led is full hdtv. Two is the contrast ratio this technicaly means the difference between white and black.
Excerpt: Samsung TV left permanant black marks from the rubber feet on the bottom in my furniture. When I called Samsung, I was told that Samsung did not suggest that I put their product on a wood surface. If you purchase a Samsung TV I recommend you protect your furniture.
Summary: This products get one star because its a nice thin looking TV, but whats good about having a nice picture quality and nice looking on the outside when eventually it will suddenly stop working. All you current Samsung TV owners, cross your fingers your TV will not suddenly stop working. I have had my TV for a little over two years and now it stopped working out of the blue.

Summary: I recently bought the Samsung 7000 55" for den area. Liked it so much I went and bought the 8000. I liked the smaller bezel around the screen better. I could have bought any TV in the store but after looking at this one on display, I thought I would give it a shot. All I can say is...WOW!!! 3D is amazing on this set but even more impressive is viewing Netflix stream! It looks like BD (Blu-Ray)almost!
Summary: If you wish a large very thin screened LED TV picture, look no further. I have more than a year's use and never a problem. It is, like with many top of the line TVs almost better than being there.
Summary: I've had this TV for almost 2 years now. The good: The picture is really great and the power consumption is really low. The frequent software updates are nice. It has sufficient ports for video & audio I/O. The bad: The widgets are unbearably slow. Changing channels is also slow (I expect the channel to change as fast as I can push the button). My old TV allowed me to label channels, but this one doesn't 3 of the HDMI ports periodically stop working.
Summary: We purchased this tv from Amazon about a year ago and I am happy to write that I am still as impressed with it as I was a year ago. The picture clarity is amazing and it took us a few days to get used to it....it feels like you are sitting on the set! If you are a sports fan like I am, you are going to love watching games on it. It captures every detail and the colors are so vibrant! Oh....and did I mentioned that it is model thin?!
