        Comments about Samsung 55" Class 4K 3D Ready LED TV:

        Picture quality is awesome!! Apps are great! I have owned both the TV and Samsung sound bar for about 6 months now and both are great items. Only issue I have is that when the TV is connected to the Samsung sound bar, I get audio stutter every once in a while and have yet to figure out why this is happening. Both the TV and sound bar are new so I am not sure if it is a TV or sound bar issue.

            The upscaling was the reason for purchase of this set compared with the Sony 850x and lg 9500 series and they all matched up and were comparable . I also believe the active 3d glasses were another plus

                Amazing TV! 4K makes standard HD look blurry! Smart remote is "Star Trek" like. Easy set-up right out of box. Made only small adjustment to contrast......

                    I have had a number of Samsung products and have been pleased with all of them. This TV is excellent with a picture that is overwhelming. It was easy to set up and works great. My only negative with the set-up was the lack of detailed clarity for the use of all of the inputs and a detailed view of the connections plane in the manual.

                            The picture quality is superb. As the TV is new we are still trying to determine everything the smart TV will do. We have determined that adding a surround sound system will enhance the sound to match the picture quality. Still haven't gotten it to connect to my PC.

                              I was an early adopter of the UN55HU8550, purchasing it the first week it was available. Overall, I've been very happy with the purchase. The picture is stellar, the aps more than adequate and useful, and connectivity is easy to achieve. All in all, I'm happy I went with the flat panel, and would recommend the set for anyone wishing to become an early 4k adopter.

                                  This is the best HDTV I have ever seen. I wish a bigger one would fit my wall but I chose a 55". It is so cool to have such a good tv.

                                    Everything about this TV, I love. The lack of true UHD 4K content is a bummer, but overall the upscaling makes for a much clearer version of 1080 content. I would recommend going with the 240 refresh rate over the 120. Lastly the active 3D is just incredible.

                                        The picture is just breathtaking. It's like looking at things happening outside a window. The upscaling handles cable tv fairly well. The motion smoothing works well but has the typical odd artifact here and there with fast moving objects. I'd definitely recommend it. It's hypnotizing to watch Netflix 4K content on it. Also the built in faux 5.1 system is surprisingly good.
