First, I must say, that I was an almost completely satisfied owner of a 3 yr old 52" 1080i DLP TV. The shortcoming of that set was it's inability to display a decent quality full screen output from my computer using DVI, HDMI, or VGA inputs. While this was a common limitation of sets sold at that time, I am an IT guy and I was finally fed up ! A fellow IT consultant, well versed in the latest toys recommended this set. Suffice it to say that I owe him dinner at the restaurant of his choice ! Not only does the picture quality and clarity of this set absolutely blow away any other Hi Def TV I have ever seen, but the unit excels as a computer monitor; faithfully reproducing the subtle textures and shades of high quality graphics. Windows 7 never looked better ! Congratulations Samsung, you outdid yourself ! Can't wait to see what you come up with next. P.S. Since you've shot the load buying this set, you might as well get the wireless adapter for it. The built in internet features are basic compared to the funtionality of a PC, but the set did prompt me to download a firmware update last week....

Had the TV for less than a month. It developed dark patches in each corner of the screen. Guy came out to fix it, by replacing screen and motherboard - did not solve it. Now an hour after the guy has gone the TV will not even boot up!! See picture of dark patches.

Follow-on Support?

By ASKILL

from Colorado Springs

Comments about Samsung 55" Black LED Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

I must admit I am truely impressed with this TV. Straight from the box the TV was impeccible. Bright, clear and no motion blur. I can't say enough good things about the TV. So why the 4stars on design? This TV has capabilities that were just beginning to be developed, yet, Samsung has essential dropped support for the processor and have offered no significant updates to the potential capabilities of the set. (Last update was provided in Feb 2010) If I had known that this model would be dropped so quickly, I would have waited for the next model that also includes 3D. But again I can't fault the TV - it's a fantastic system.

Better than I could imagine

By 12MarchBrown

from Chatham, New Jersey

Comments about Samsung 55" Black LED Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

I bought my 55" LED TV in January- this is SO much better than anything I had before including my 'regular' HD TV's.Everything is so crisp and vibrant. The various features ( which take a while to master - please read manual and mess around) are great. Sport is something else on this TV it's like you are actually there. The World Cup on LED was the only way to go - brilliant

Low Weight Thin Profile Main reasons purchesed

By Cambriaguy

from Johnstown,PA

Comments about Samsung 55" Black LED Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

The low weight and extremely thin profile for a 55 inch screen television were my main criteria for making this purchase. I went from a 58 inch plasma that weighed 160 pounds to a 55 inch LED that weighs about 60 pounds dropping a good 100 pounds. Much less nervous having a TV like this on my TV stand than the monster weight TV I had before it. I am much happier with this television and think it has an excellent picture. If you move frequently this TV is the way to go much easier to lift and carry than the other TVs this screen size.

Best purchase I've made!

By RayJ55

from Elmhurst, IL

Comments about Samsung 55" Black LED Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

I did a lot of research and review many diferent types of TVs and nothing came close to the Samsung LED 558000. In combination with the TV, Samsung BD-7500 and 7.1 surround, there is no reason to go out to the movies. Both TV and Blueray were fast and easy to setup. Even my wife knows how to operete the system. The BD-7500 is fast loading, no more downtime waiting for movies to load and the internet features are fast and enjoyable. When upgrades are available, Samsung gives you notification and upgrades can be done through the internet. I am one happy customer!

55" LED

By Deano

Comments about Samsung 55" Black LED Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

After viewing my new Samsung LEDs (bought two 55"), I'm not sure how I could have watched non-HD TV all those years! This TV is truly outstanding... superior picture quality, light weight, and energy efficient. Recommend to anyone!

CNET missed this one by a mile!!!!

By Anonymous

from Jacksonville, FL

Comments about Samsung 55" Black LED Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

This is the best tv I've seen in a long time. CNET said the off angle viewing was horrible. Not the case you can view the tv from any angle with clarity. I have a 52 LCD in my bedroom and it is also great, although not LED. Save your money this TV is well worth it. If you are looking at this caliber TV then you already have surround sound, so don't worry about the sound. Its fine for regular TV, but insufficient for movies. I love technology!!
