I can say that purchasing this TV is a considerable upgrade from the Vizio that I was using. The sound quality of the TV is good but what all can you expect from rear facing speakers. Good enough for me but if you want added sounds, it would be best to get a sound bar. Itâ€™s a very good showing TV. Very bright and superb color saturation. Also, I like the thin profile of the chassis around the screen. The only problem I have with the TV is that the stand doesnâ€™t do the TV any justice. It looks kind of cheaply done for such a huge screen. The TV wobbles on the stand if it were to get bumped into. But other than that, I love this TV. I have nothing negative to say about this TV as of right now other than to say i wish it had more connections to hook things up to it. =(

I bought this TV with high hopes, and at first it was a delight. After about a week, I started to notice issues occurring more frequently. When I play games on it, if there is a scene change, the colour is distorted (goes to a greenish tint) for about one second . In addition, the TV constantly goes black for a second or two before displaying the HDTV input on the top right and then making the show or game visible again. this use to happen maybe once or twice a day, but after 2 weeks, it now happens every 2-5 minutes. REALLY ANNOYING!!! Also, sometimes the screen will have multi-coloured dots on it while watching TV. It will start with two or three, and within 1-2 minutes there will be about 50-100 all over the screen. The only way to get rid of it is to turn the TV off, and then back on again. Although this TV is cheaper than a lot of the other comparable models, it is not worth it for all the headache and annoyance you have to put up with. The quality of the pictures are amazing, and the 3D feature is great, but the cons definitely out way the pros, its definitely not worth it. I have heard many great things about samsung TVs but after this experience, I wouldn't buy a samsung TV again.

Comments about Samsung 55" Black LED 1080P 120HZ HDTV:
I was led to believe because this unit was Internet ready that it would have Streaming capability. I was wrong.....me bad. I had to install a ROKU unit to get movies and shows. Also the clear smooth finish of the screen caused a high level of glare. I had to install a anti-glare film to the surface so I can view it during the day. The base pedestal is rigidly mounted; it can't swivel. And of course, it needs an additional one or two HDMI ports to handle external devices. But generally speaking I am please with the unit.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love it! Even the 3D!

About Me Enthusiast
We're working on getting our surround sound to work with the TV. So far, only the front will work but that could easily be something we're doing wrong. The picture is really great! I thought my old one was until we started watching this one. I just wanted a larger TV for the family room and the 3D was a surprise. My boyfriend really wanted it and I have to say, it's really fun watching 3D movies at home! (I wish the glassed had a note on them saying they have to be turned on to work though) They are comfortable and a nice quality as well.
Excellent service and good product

About Me Casual User
The Samsung 55" Rear Lit LED HDTV is very nice, but a bit heavier than expected. The image is excellent. My daughter loves to play video game on it, sitting 10 feet away from it of course. I connected my computer to it. The speaskers are quite good too, don't need my 5.1 JBL speakers anymore due to space issue. May put them back when I have more space, just the TV speakers are good enough though. Have not tried 2D to 3D conversion yet.
Service and delivery comments:
Delivery took about 10 days. Customer Service was excellent.
I bought this tv from BestBuy and the price was great. Took it home unboxed and installed. The setup was very easy but certain buttons on the remote didn't work. No big deal, i had another Samsung remote. But the real problem came about 3-4 hours later when the audio began to delay itself from the picture. After a few days of trouble shooting i.e Bypassed surround,new hdmi cord, verify firmware, contacted Samsung live chat via internet and preformed a factory reset. The problem still arose 3-4 hours later, the only temporary fix was to either switch inputs back and forth or turn the tv on/off. Having to do that to a brand new is ridiculous The picture is amazing and the 3D is breath taking but I am forced to return to BestBuy. FYI as expected with most LED tv's the built-in speakers offer mild sound, with a slight rattle from the housing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Absolutely Love It
from North Texas
Samsung has a great reputation for quality and service. I saw this TV at the store and compared the picture to all the others. Viewing from all directions, this had the best picture; no fuzziness or pixilation at any angle. Haven't tried the 3d feature yet.
Fantastic T.V. for the price!
Just a few extras on this. A fantastic T.V. if that is all you need it for. Every thing on this model is awesome, except the Eco Sensor/ Energy Saving mode. It changes and or flickers when it wants too. I just changed it to the setting i liked the best. this T.V. is already saving money on the electric over any picture tube models.
Great picture Quality

I got a lemon! And Samsung was no help!

This is a simple and economical 3D LED TV. It is 240p, 3D with 2 glasses, internet ready. There are only 2 HDMI and a combo component/composite input.The problem: I got a lemon and Samsung was not very helpful. When I opened the sealed box to install the TV, both the power cable and remote were missing. ABT sent them to me as fast as it could. When I tried to set up the TV with the power cable, everything was mirror image. After two false starts with authorized repair centers, Samsung sent a repair man with some parts after trying to diagnose the problem on the phone. He failed to repair the problem. It is now a month since I ordered the TV. I lost a month of waranty coverage and still no functioning TV. ABT has shipped a new TV to replace the lemon.5 stars to ABT; 0 star to Samsung; 0 star to this TV.
Relatively good tv at an affordable price.
I got the TV during the Thanksgiving weekend. After extensive research, I zeroed in on this , specially because this was a good product with 3D at very attractive price. The issues I have with this is that the TV is: Has only two HDMI and one USB. It would have been good if the smart APPs were part of this product.
