Excellent color. Strong contrast. Lots of connected features

Black levels could be better

Samsung's F5500 LED HDTVs deliver a picture with excellent colors and strong contrast along with plenty of online features, all for a very reasonable price.

Samsung's F5500 LED HDTVs deliver a picture with excellent colors and strong contrast along with plenty of online features, all for a very reasonable price.

We test HDTVs with a Klein K10-A colorimeter, SpectraCal’s CalMAN 5 diagnostic software, and DisplayMate test patterns with a basic dark room calibration for brightness and contrast. The F5500 gets satisfyingly bright at 316.360 cd/m2, but it doesn’t...

Great TV, Horrible Packaging

 

While I may have had more cons to speak of, I do love this tv and would recommend it... Just probably not refurbished.

The TV is beautiful. Crystal clear image, bright and vivid. Packed full of features and easy to use and set up

The *REFURBISHED* TV comes very loosely boxed in a non OEM box that barely protects it. First TV arrived with a puncture through the box that, while I was hopeful had not actually damaged the TV, actually left it unable to render an image. It also is...

Considering the amount of time and effort involved in unpacking, repacking, arranging pick up, unpacking again, and now getting a samsung technician to come by, it has definitely not been worth the $120 savings off the original price. I just hope...

Great looking tv when it works. Clear picture and looks fantastic when watching HD shows or when playing PS3 or 4 games

First arrived with a damaged screen. Returned it to Newegg and they replaced it, and the replacement arrived a week later ; Now, a month later, the new TV dies. It power cycles, turning itself on and off over and over again

Awesome TV! Terrible Service from Sohnen Enterprises

 

Now the down side. It arrived with a minor but extremely annoying defect. The right bezel is out of alignment and the backlight can be seen as a bright line on the edger of the picture. It can be repaired easily. Its not a problem with the tv but with...

TV has a variety of features I enjoy. I't basically a giant all in one computer running linux. Picture quality is wonderful

Nothing I can think of

Gorgeous TV but...

 

Refurbish is replace only - no refunds. NewEgg is good with these things generally. Will update when the next arrives

Big and Beautiful ; Great functionality ; Easy to assemble and set up

Screen was damaged on arrival. A large black streak across the middle of the screen appears when there are light colours there. Horribly distracting when watching hockey for example
