Summary: This is my first big screen or flat screen and the picture is fantastic. Great contrast and blacks at only moderate settings. Vibrant colors without pumping up the gain. I read a review where someone was complaining about the screen not being perfectly black during dead air time and they are right but it doesn't matter because when a show is on it's not noticeable and the blacks are black. So, yes, great TV.
Summary: It's absolutely ridiculous that Samsung does not allow Amazon Prime to function on this TV. They've got hundreds of other crap applications and not the one I really need. I'll be getting another brand next time.
Summary: The styling on this tv, and the picture quality are both great. Plenty of inputs. Cons: This TV and any of the 2011 Samsung TV's will not work with Amazon video on demand which is very annoying since the older models do work with it. It's impossible to get any info on if this is going to be fixed, or your just out of luck if you bought a Samsung tv in 2011.
Summary: After a loooooooong search for TV's I finally zeroed it down to this model. It had everything I wanted in a TV for a very good price. I started to initially enjoy the TV until I found out that I received a defective one. :( The TV had what is called white light clouding, bleeding issues. When there is a dark scene or if the edges of the pictures are dark you can CLEARLY see the Edge lit LED light seeping in to your TV.
Back light issues Nice remote and beautiful design

Summary: First, this is my second Samsung LCD TV, I still have my old LN52A650A in the back room, where it needs to be as it wasn't bright enough to work in full sunlight. That has been my only complaint of that TV, the need to shut the curtains to cut the reflection off the glossy screen. When I saw this new LED lit 55" designers dream in Best Buy I was amazed at how great the picture looked.
