        Best TV I've ever owned

        By Klowe

        from Northern, VA, USA

        Comments about Samsung 55" Class 4K ULTRA HD LED TV:

        Love, Love, Love this TV. The only concern one should have is the screen is reflective. If you plan on putting it in a bright room with lots of windows, you will see reflections.

            I bought this tv a week before the super bowl to ensure the highest quality picture for the big game. Suffice it to say, neither the tv nor the Patriots disappointed. Smart hub interface is intuitive and provides all the necessary applications to satisfy my teenage children.

              Great picture and the available features are amazing. Only complaint is the sound. Sounds like an old radio. You will definitely want to add a sound bar or surround system to really enjoy this TV.

                              Comments about Samsung 55" Class 4K ULTRA HD LED TV:

                              I love everything about this technical wonder! The picture and the ability to manipulate several sets of picture adjustments to make the images perfect to me. The small remote/mouse works flawlessly and controls power/volume of my Denon AV Receiver and AT&T U-verse power and all functions almost out of the box. YouTube, Netflix, Amazon an Vimeo have a good selection of 4K content and up scaling works very well. U-Verse offers PPV 3D rentals of all the Action Adventure movies. We watched Guardians of the Galaxy last night and the 3D was better than in the theatre and the glasses set securely in place, even though I wear regular glasses as well. This is our 4th Samsung flatscreen. The first was a best in class 32" 1080i set. It cost a bit more than the 8550 when we bought it and it's still going strong. With all the features built into the 8550, this may be the last set we need.
