Samsung UN50F5500AF

 

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.

Excellent color. Strong contrast. Lots of connected features.

Black levels could be better.

The Samsung F5500 series of LED HDTVs offers a very good picture and an impressive array of smart services and features. It isn't the darkest panel, and it doesn't offer 3D, but for the price, you get a lot of screen. If you want a bigger picture and...

Samsung UN50F5500AF

 

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...

And it's dead...

 

Never again Samsung, never again...

It WAS a nice tv for it's price

Lost the picture the other day. After all troubleshooting, and talking with a Samsung tech, I was told it needs to go to the shop. It is 16 months old, and the warranty expired after 12 months. Bare minimum to get this issue fixed is $200, and max...

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...

ATI Radeon 7500 64mb PCI card

 

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
