Summary: Arrived broken; local techs took 3 weeks to troubleshoot it to a flat panel. They initially pushed to have me turn the TV in and get a replacement, but with no guarantees on how that one would arrive I opted for a repair. Overall, they replaced a $1200 flat panel; haven't had an issue with it (aside from not being able to reprogram the menu myself--NETFLIX dumped and they had to take control of my TV via remote servicing and accomplish updates that way).
Summary: I anyone would be able to respond to this, I have a sonos soundbar with two play 3's and a subwoofer. I read problems with the optical out and hdmi. Does anyone have a sonos soundbar, two play 3's and a sonos sub/ does it work with this tv for the 5.1 surround sound? Also how does the input lag compare to that of the sonyxbr65x850b (the other 3000 dollar sony competitor) because I am a big gamer but when I saw them both in the store, it looked better than the sony.
Jaw dropping, set it up correctly, equal to plasma for sports, 4K is amazing and worth the $

Summary: First off let me start by saying that I'm a hard sell. I do way too much research before I buy anything, esp. something this expensive. I have been researching all aspects of big screen TV's for over 18months. I went to best buy to look at several models at least 8 times during that period. I've had my eye on this TV, the curved 7250, and the Plasma 8500 series (from Samsung). In the end, I went with the 8550 and I seriously think it was the best decision I ever made.
Summary: This is a great TV with an amazing picture. To get the most of it, Search for "4K" or "UHD" on the built in YouTube app. The TV is very fast and easy to navigate with the remote. I would highly recommend this TV but would suggest waiting until Black Friday for a price drop if you could hold off for a few months.

Summary: I have had this TV for 1 week so far and Its Great!. I also have a Plasma F8500 which is great also, better?....I dont know, it depends of your own taste. On my new 65HU550 Baby I have watched movies on Netflix and some of them are Super HD, dont know yet if they are 4K but I can tell you its the best resolution I have ever seen. Dark scenes on movies work better on the Plasma, but the HU8550 do a nice job with them also. Colors and Brightness are great.
Summary: The best TV I ever bought.I also purchase the samsung wireless keyboard which works best for me for browsing .My wife rather used the small remote to navigate between apps and internet..The 3d Feature is easy to used and syncing the 3d glasses was also a breeze.I've notice when the 3d glasses weren't being used the battery life inside of the 3d glasses drains very fast so I recommends when the glasses aren't being used to remove battery from glasses.I was tempted to...
Summary: 3 weeks into owning the TV, it decided to stop working. Amazon has been helpful in setting up an exchange (it's going to take 9 days to get the new one, but that's because finding a time I can sat at home waiting for delivery isn't easy.) Great TV when it worked. Hopefully this is just a one off issue.
