If you get the chance to pick this TV up on EBAY or refurbished etc then do!
I bought this TV as an end of line TV last year and it is incredible.
The picture quality and brightness is great, the 55" screen just brings things to life!
Its an LED tv with dynamic lighting controls so its able to make the darker scenes look even darker as it can adjust the edge lighting to improve the contrast as needed.
That means that you get much better blacks compared with a standard LED or LCD screen which really makes the images stand out!
As for the 3D capability of the TV, it is by far the best 3D TV of its generation. I havent tested the latest generation of 3D tv's but this one blew the competition away at the time. Everyone that has come round and watched 3D on this TV says its way better than anything else they have seen anywhere and I have to agree.
The TV also has a built in Media player which works ok but is not capable of playing a lot of common formats or audio encoding so I use a WDTV Live (which is excellent!).
Other than that I cannot fault this TV, if you see one going on EBAY or refurbished snap them up as the newer model is almost exactly the same but with a thinner bezel (my father in law bought that one after seeing mine!).
Finally there's a television that delivers a picture so stunning that it looks and feels - more real than reality. It's the Samsung LED C8000. With its explosive 3D capabilities and immersive HyperReal engine, it delivers the world as you've never seen it before. Its LED screen amplifies images to such an extent that it's hard to believe they're coming out of an ultra-slim TV. Richer colors, smoother motion and mega contrast levels combine to make an unparalleled viewing experience. So whether you're watching your favorite television programs, web content or a video you shot yourself, it was designed to blow your mind.
