It will use older (more expensive) 3D glasses than 2011-2012 Samsungs, and also has very poor quality 3D performance.
I'd rather buy a new mid-range set than a used or refurbished set from 2-3 years ago. if you're looking for high-end models with full-array local dimming, those haven't really been made in any significant quantity for at least a few years.

Really,maybe im reading reviews that are too old based on the high price they use to be....http://reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/samsung-lcd-tv/samsung-un55c9000.html
it use to be 5k and now can be found for 2k,thats gotta be a decent deal for something that high end..I do see its not full array dimming though,what are some good model tvs from a few yrs ago that do have that feature,Why would you rather have a mediocre mid range tv thats new over a model thats stellar from a couple yrs back and costs less than the new so so tvs out now,it looks like everything i read is showing all the new lineups of the top manufactures are just not as nice as they use to be made a couple yrs back. im guessing the build quality is prolly much better in the older units and they will prolly run longer trouble free also. AM i wrong in this type of thinking..
bullpuss....my house is only bout 2800 sq ft to boot,im gonna be on a hvac forum next trying to find a good solution to replacing these old central ac units..so i deff dont need a plasma heater
boxorox87....nah im correct,they have 12 of them for 1300,its inside the 46 inch link,you change it to the 55 inch..
