My purchase was based on several factors: 1. Picture quality: Plasma exceeds LED and LCD performance in every category. My friend has a huge LED that shudders and judders with fast motion scenes. Nothing of the sort appears on this unit... every frame of every scene is fluid and precise. You can see ALL the details flashing by. 2. Price/performance: I got this at a great price, comparable to most LEDs. 'Nuff said. 3. True 1080p stereo 3D performance: I compared the cheaper LG 3D monitors, with the hyped passive glasses. The picture quality was noticeably poorer. I believe Samsung will eventually come out with a true passive 1080p plasma. Until that time, I am very happy with my 550. The only detriment is a buzz that is notable during quiet scenes, which prevents a 5-star Performance rating. I've read that opening the back and placing buffer foam plastic washers between the rear cover and the main circuit panel inside may alleviate this problem, but I'm not voiding my warranty to find out. If it gets louder, I will contact Samsung for a remedy. Overall, it's all about picture quality and value for the money. An added bonus? There seems to be no picture retention whatsoever, which means I can play my PS3 or PC games without fear of burn-in. Thank goodness for smart engineers at Samsung, for making my life easier.

Have had this TV for just around a month and still amazed at teh picture quality. This TV replaced our aging 42" LCD HDTV. The colors are great and the picture is crisp. I only have three complaints about this TV. The first major flaw is the base design. This particular model has a flat glass base with a round neck going the the tv. This TV wobbles horribly if touched. The neck is not enough to firmly support a 60" TV. I have check and tightened all the screws and it has not helped. I invested in a set of safety cables to help support tv. The second flaw is the lack of any sort of universal remote. The third flaw of the tv would have to be the cable connections. Two of the three HDMI hooke up are on the side of the tv. The one on the back sticks straight to the back and provides for a difficult angle for hooking up the cables especially since the connections are kind ov high up the back the tv.

          I bought this model because I wanted a smart tv with its own built-in browser, but it's been a disappointment. The browser is very slow, and it crashes frequently. It's unable to use the assists that many web sites require.

            Comments about Samsung 60" Series 5 Plasma Black Flat Panel 3D HDTV:

            We've had this in our house for a little over 6 months. I love playing with connections and networking. It had REAL troubles with All-share to PC connection for sure. I installed Servio on my PC and the TV picks it up just fine for watching over 6000 movies and tv programs stored there. The picture is great, not so good in bright rooms. The sound is satisfactory but not true theater powerful. All-in-all it's a great product with lots of fun bells and whistles. Can't wait for the day they react a little faster over the network and possibly add in a Media Center-type interface for browsing libraries...perhaps a sweet app.

                Preferred our Samsung 50" LCD tv--it died after 4 years so got the plasma. Set-up was easy; the base is large and heavy which is good for a large tv. The sound is just ok, added a sound bar which did make a big difference.

                      Produces a very loud hum that can be heard from 15-20 feet away! I know this is how plasmas can be and is probably a defective unit but it isn't worth the hassle of returning so i'll just have to deal with it by turning up the volume.

                      Smart TV apps will not work at all when Samsung is performing maintenance on their servers. It would give you a cryptic error message when the service is unavailable. i had to Google it to find out what was going on. Unbelievable that they would design it this way. My Panasonic smart TV is always up and running unless an individual app is down. If Samsung is down, ALL of your apps won't work! Bad design Samsung!
