      This unit is a nice mid level plasma with very good black levels.
      The white contrast is a bit heavy but not bad with some calibration.
      As an AV Tech I look for a good value for the $
      The Smart Hub is very good and dual core is a plus.
      The base a bit flimsy.

          Comments about Samsung 60" 5500 Series Full HD Smart 3D Plasma TV:

          It was a great purchase. With so many options on TVs right now, I was a bit confused - especially with the price of this TV. My wife wanted the newest style, the one that came with the Samsung camera and the Samsung Keyboard. I was able to add these items for under 150 dollars and make this TV look and feel as a 3000 dollar TV. The quality of the picture is incredible, the colors are vivid and the ECO standard feature can be overriden by a simple click on the remote control. Great Purchase…..

          Good TV, even better value

          By Dan

          from California

          Comments about Samsung 60" 5500 Series Full HD Smart 3D Plasma TV:

          Overall, the TV is a steal at the current price. The picture quality is better than I expected. The smart interface and the touch remote are very user friendly and easy to manage. The complaints on the remote that I have read are unwarranted. Definitely a lot of bang for your buck. They only complaints I could even mention would be the stand and web browser. The stand feels flimsy, but it does support the TV as required. The web browser is a bit slow, but I really don't use it that much. The screen does reflect alot, but it is manageable. Overall, I am a very satisfied user. I would recommend this TV at the current price range.

              Comments about Samsung 60" 5500 Series Full HD Smart 3D Plasma TV:

              This is my first plasma so I can't say I'm an expert. However, I did a lot of research before making a decision on which TV to buy. I wanted a 60inch TV for a media room in an attic that has some ambient light but will mostly be used after dark. I read numerous reviews about how good this TV was for the price point and after going to see it at a local store I decided to purchase from B&H. I have to say I am not disappointed with my decision to purchase this TV or to buy from B&H. The TV arrived on schedule and there was no obvious signs of mishandling of the box. After unpacking the TV and checking it out everything was fine and the TV worked perfectly. After mounting it, we tweaked the settings based on recommendations from other users in popular forums. The picture is bright and clear and viewable from the most obscure angles. There is some reflection of ambient daytime light that I'd expect from a plasma but that's not a problem. The smart features are great although I don't have much need for them but they're definitely among the best I've seen. The remote is also the best I've ever had with a TV. I've not tested the 3D capabilities yet but I'm looking forward to trying it out.

              Overall this was an excellent purchase especially given the price. I'd definitely recommend this TV to anyone looking for a 60inch for a home cinema.

                The best thing about this TV is its plasma display.Rich in natural color with deep blacks that give a crisp contrasty and very pleasing picture. Like other fans of excellent picture quality, I lament the imminent passing of plasma screens. I can only hope that new display technologies find their way into our homes to give even better pictures.Set up for viewing is fairly simple. Not so with the added 'smart' facilities, some of which I am struggling with.

                    Comments about Samsung 60" 5500 Series Full HD Smart 3D Plasma TV:

                    After lengthy research and various viewing assessments of 60" flat screen TVs (LED and plasma) I finally pulled the trigger for the Samsung PN60F5500. The TV is installed in a home theater in my finished basement, and I do not believe that I could have been noticeably happier with any other choice. Currently the Panasonic P60ST60 has received most rave reviews, but I was not willing to pay $300 more for the Panasonic. After I have used the Samsung plasma for two weeks now I feel even more strongly to have made the right decision. Possibly, in side by side comparisons one might notice small differences between image performance, but I expect that for most everybody a step up to the PN60F5500 will be from a model several years old, and the dramatic improvement will completely outweigh minor differences to current top-reviewed TVs. Often those differences can only be measured but not really be detected by eye. I personally also own a Panasonic TC-P50V10, which had received most of the rave in 2009/10, the last year before 3D TVs, and the new Samsung easily holds in own and brings a bunch of improvements.

                    More specifically: I am very impressed with the Samsung Smartsuit and wifi connectivity. This TV really has a computer built-in, and by using the HBO, Verizon and other streaming apps I have access to a lot of TV programming without the need for an extra cable box. I also love that the TV comes with ARC functionality, which allows to output the 5.1 channel audio through my receiver even when the streamed movies are directly received by the TV (Of course, the receiver needs to be ARC compatible, too!). The built-in speakers are OK by what one can expect from such a TV, certainly not more, but I was never expecting to use them much at all. 3D performance is outstanding. The viewing experience of the 3D Avatar Blue-Ray to me is just as mind-boggling as it was in the movie theater.

                    Other considerations: The TV comes with a remote control with relatively few buttons and a touchpad like those of laptop computers. I like it and do not find it difficult to adjust. Plasmas have traditionally been more power hungry than LCD/LED TVs, but with an Energy Star-rated $20/year operating cost this particular plasma seems well in the same league with comparable LED TVs. For its size it is rather light, a bit over 60 lbs.
                    Lastly, the screen is really glossy. If you plan to use the TV in well lit rooms reflections from windows/lights might become annoying.

                    This TV is best I have ever owned. The picture is crystal clear, from my DirectTV box. It came with a blue ray 3D player, free from B&H. Everything is either HDMI cable, or blue tooth. The remote is small and easy to use. Wireless wifi setup is so automatic you don't notice when it happens.

                      I've owned a variety of TV's but this one is by far the most modern and most useful TV ever! Everyone should own a SmartTV. It's uses are endless with it's internet features. My grandmother was visiting from out of town when I received it, saw how easy it is to setup and use. I've ordered one for my grand parents and plan to use skype on my 60 inch screen in my livingroom. How modern can you get? We just LOVE IT!!!

                            Right now the TV is smarter than I am. I really don't feel qualified to rate it. I am very satisified with my purchase from B & H. They are the professional Source. No suprises or problems yet.

                              I bought this TV to replace a rear projection RCA from the '90s.
                              It's got a great picture and it's conventient to be able to access Netflix and Pandora without any attachments.
                              The only thing I'm not sure about is the remote. I'm still learning to use the device, but it appears not to have progammable shortcuts that would make it easier to access what we want.
