Owner Reviews Submit a Review

I am quite satisfied with the performance of my 51'' Samsung Plasma TV F5500. The 3-D and Smart features are great, especially compared to other brands at the same price range. The display is quite bright and crisp. Sound quality is also remarkable. The Wifi connectivity works well under most circumstances, depending on the quality of service from the internet service provider. The web browser is versatile to facilitate seamless browsing and for viewing embedded online videos. The Samsung apps are easy to navigate and the menu is quite intuitive. Power consumption is also quite reasonable for a plasma TV.

This is a great TV for the money. The picture quality is great and the colors are spot on. The built in speakers are better than I would have expected. The smart features are nice. The remote is smaller which I like, and is easy to use once you get used to it. The 3D is really cool. I think the stand could have been a little better, like the one that comes with the 8500 series. Overall I am very satisfied with this TV.
