Summary: Good TV and great quality. I bought this to replace my very old TV that would not stop working. I knew I wanted a LED TV + Smart TV. I did not care about the 3D feature. And bought this during a good sale for around 1000 dollars. Personally I did not like the smart tv features as it is missing the surfing the web capabilities (But none of the TVs of this generation has browser capabilities; so it is not Samsung's fault.
Summary: I bought one of these from Best Buy and it was so awesome (my first HDTV) that I bought one for my parents to replace their ancient CRT monstrosity. They keep e-mailing me to tell me how they can see imperfections on the faces of allegedly beautiful people and how they can see new details like patterns on clothing and wallpaper in movies they've watched a million times. Truth be told, the "Smart" functions of this TV are pretty lame.
Summary: We spent a long time deciding which TV to buy. We knew it was going to be Samsung, but the question of which model was tough because it seems like the 3D thing has really kicked in and brought the prices up. IMO, the world of 3D does not live up to expectations at this point, and after looking at all the different models up to the 8000, this one seemed to everything we needed without spending a fortune. Also helped that there was a fantastic early Black Friday deal.
Summary: Bought this TV on boxing day when it was on sale. Also ordered the samsung ultra slim mount to compliment it. Picture Quality: Amazing. Looks sort of 3D. The auto motion plus does jitter once in a while but hardly enough to really take your attention away from what you are watching. Sometimes doesn't happen at all. Can be turned off or changed to another settings to minimize or remote it jitter. The auto motion plus gives sort of like a home movie effect.
Summary: I was in the market finally for a large flat screen TV after my 27 inch Sony VEGA's picture started to go after 10+ years. I took a stroll over to the local blue box store to check out selections in person to get an idea of what was out there as this is the first time I've been in the market. My eyes were immediately drawn to the 55 inch Samsung. I wasn't planning on making a purchase until I saw the price - it was only $999.
Summary: The tv is nice and clear. It was easy to set up. Much lighter than my 52ln6500. I do have a problem when watching prime time tv on certain channels. It looks like it pixelates. I called Samsung and they said to change my cable box. I did but it did not work. I am still trying to figure it out. It there are any suggestions please let me know.
Summary: Impressed with in the room delivery, box opened just far enough to plug in and get to the set-up screen displayed. No blemishes and elegant thin, light and stylish design of screen. Picture quality is very good with the best source of HD content. Sometimes with sitcoms, it looks too clear, but have some motion issues. Ghosting is more prevalent on the sitcoms, than the sports programs, even with trying several of the motion plus settings available in the menu.
Summary: Pros: - great picture - price - love the apps (blockbuster, youtube,..) - works great with ps3 - super thin display - amazon delivery: very nice and on time full service with installation included cons: - lack of component cable input. They provide you with a very cheap adapter that does not work. The adapter is so cheap that can sustain the weight of the cables. Picture comes out horrible with colored messed up and a lot of interference.
Summary: Having owned the TV and enjoyed it thoroughly for about 2 months I must say that its a very nice TV for the $. I shopped and compared many models and side by side the Samsung quality could not be matched. The apps feature is sub par as there are few useful ones and the only 2 that I tend to use are Netflix,Pandora and of course the smart features of being able to access my external drive directly for music and video are nice.
