Comment: Samsung one of the leading company in the world having multiple features and specially the recording option of TV shows via USB port. This a wonderful advantage for every person using this television. If they can't see the program on time so they can easily set the recording time and later they can watch and enjoy. Samsung company who has launched this model is affordable and reliable for everyone. It has excellent smart tv system and any tv shows or movies can be watched more interesting at night time in low light or dark room.
Thanks to Samsung for such a kind television.
Good: For dark room viewing, however, it puts in a much better showing thanks to its combination of big...60inch screen
Bad: Voice recognition still struggles to be useful ; Very reflective screen surface ; SD upscaling isn’t great ; Pentile pixel structure means it doesn't look quite as sharp as other Full HD plasmas

Smoother images for greater clarity

Stay connected by sharing
Seamlessly share content across all of your connected devices with Samsung's AllShare. AllShare allows you to share photos, videos and music from your Samsung compatible smartphone, tablet, laptop and camera to the big screen of your TV.

Clear Image Panel
The Samsung Plasma+1 TV uses a new filter and panel structure to eliminate layered images and produce clear images from almost every angle. This also eliminates the production of dual images and blurring typically found with glass.
More vibrant colours for better images
Using an advanced picture quality improvement algorithm, Samsungs Wide Colour Enhancer Plus drastically improves the quality of any image and uncovers hidden details. Now see colours as they were meant to be seen with Wide Colour Enhancer Plus.
Watch movies from your USB
With ConnectShare Movie, simply plug your USB memory drive or HDD into the TV and instantaneously enjoy movies, photos or music. Now, you can experience a wide variety of content in the comfort of your living room on your TV.
The PS60F5500 lacks an effective anti-reflection filter so it's not a sensible choice for those who mostly watch TV during daylight hours in bright rooms.
The Samsung F5500 plasma offers great features and very good picture quality, but its performance suffers significantly under the lights.
Good: when new
Bad: develop ghosts images after 2 years
Comment: All Samsung tvs suffer from design fault. Unless you want to throw away after two years, don't waste your money
