Hello Everyone,

I recently bought a PN60E7000, but i had some issues with the TV and Samsung is offering to replace it. Since this model is no longer produced, they are offering me an "equal", Samsung PN60F5500.

I couldn't find too much to compare these units, but it seems that the E7000 is a better TV. Does anyone have more information on these sets? Any advice on what I should ask for?

Your help is most appreciated!

I dont think there is enough known about the 5500 yet, if it were me, Id see if I could work a F8500 even if I had to spend a little extra.....Samsung changed the lineup this year so there is no real direct equivelent to the E7000....the E6500\E7000\E8000 got combined to the F8500. The F5500>E550, the E530>E5300 etc etc.....You may want to go and see the F5500 in person if you can find it, as so far the only reports I have seen are on the model directly below it the F5300.....

I know a few people have chosen to go the F8500 route though when getting a replacement.....Hopefully more people will get the F5500 and report back in one forum or another so everyone can get a better idea of how it stacks up.....

I appreciate the reply and I was thinking the same thing after looking at the new lineup. Any tips on how to get the upgrade? How much more should I expect to pay? Thanks!
