Most all HDTV panels (LCD or plasma) are rated at 100,000+ hours, and LED is LCD.
At 100,000 hours that is 8 hours of TV -EVERY SINGLE DAY- for 34 years.
At a more reasonable 4 hours of TV per day (i.e. you have a life) -EVERY SINGLE DAY- it is 68 years.

Hey C. Charlton, Any chance you willing to sell that 24' Sony Google TV? I'm looking everywhere for the 24/32' models but can't find in stock.

Ya that's what I did, I found someone else was also already logged into the Netflix and I couldn't find how to log them out, guess they didn't know either. But that was just unacceptable though, they didn't even check the contents when the last person returned it and it's a high ticket item.
I was also disappointed with two things in the short time I had it, the Smart features were pretty slow and Netflix version didn't have subtitles available, and the speakers were also pretty weak, they had a tinny sound to them.
@C. Hunziker no it does not have Amazon instant Video. Even though there was an update available which would open up more apps but I didn't bother to do that.

I'm looking into possibly getting a Sony now instead, otherwise I'll just get a non-smart 120Hz HDTV and get a Google TV add-on instead, which is was I want to avoid, connecting extra stuff. Problem is I may never find another 40" Smart TV at such a good price $600

If you can get rid of the Samsung do it. Do not get another. The picture will start to go out shortly after the warranty is out and Samsung doesnt care. Check the blogs.

Sorry I haven't been able to answer your question as yet, I haven't tried the TV out because of a complicated situation. When I opened the box, all the packaging inside was already opened by someone else, and the screen was marked up with what looks like pen ink as well, also a part was missing and 2 of the screws.
Now the store is out of stock for that model, and when I called Samsung they said they stopped manufacturing the 2011 models and are focusing on 2012 models, so I was told to go back to the store and see if they can order another one from their dealer, see how that works out later tonight.

Oh and this is just a TV for my bedroom by the way, replacing a 24" Sony Google TV, which I got last September to replace a 27" Panasonic CRT that finally died on me.
And how can I find when this TV was made?

I recently purchased a Samsung UN40D5550 from BJ's for $575. On Amazon the closest thing in features and model number is the Samsung UN40D5500 40-Inch 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV (Black), there is no proper page for the D5550. I say close in features because about the 5000 series you get 120Hz.

So there isn't a comparison sheet for the D5550 here like the others, but just looking at the box it says it's a Smart TV and has Samsung Apps. My problem is I'm having trouble finding information or reviews on it, most searches including a description on Samsung's website say it's ClearMotion 120. I don't see any indication of that on the box though, and the description at the store said it was only 60Hz.

Can anyone tell me more about this TV before I open the box up? Did I strike a good deal?
