I can say that right out of the box this TV has blown me away with its stunning picture! I spent weeks researching HDTVs before making my decision to buy this product. I wanted a large screen TV from a manufacturer that gets high marks for both product reliability and great picture qualities. My decision to buy this specific TV was made easier and based in part on my experience with a 22" Samsung TV purchased for use in our kitchen a couple months earlier. NOTICE: I've only had the unit for two weeks so the reliability remains to be seen but the picture it delivers is phenomenal. It's not 3D capable but the subjects still seem to "stand apart" and "forward" from their background almost as if displayed in 3D... if that makes any sense. It also projects great detail even in the shadows. The TV was easy to set-up with its on-screen prompts. The only frustrating issue I had was when I tried to input text but after several attempts I managed to figure out what I was doing wrong. Chalked it up to "operator error." From my research I knew that good sound quality was lacking in most HDTVs with "down-firing" speakers. That's true with this unit also although several sound setting options let you get the best of what is possible. Maybe this was a "planned design weakness" by the manufacturers to force buyers to search out their soundbars to fill the sonic void. I would suggest slightly beefier "forward-firing" speakers even if it meant higher product cost. I believe consumers would be willing to pay for this improvement. Bottom line: You'll be impressed with the picture and the features.

We're fairly happy with this set. As with most televisions out there today, this one comes with a wealth of image options that most every review or professional guide advises leaving off. This seems like good advice; the use of pretty much any of the image processing features would cause occasional distortions, judder, or pixelation. The lighting on our screen is not completely even, but is slightly darker in the corners. Compression artifacts from your cable/satellite STB can be quite noticeable, so make sure you're not sitting too close to this one, and have it calibrated correctly. Xbox One & blu-ray discs look great. We don't use the 'Smart TV' functions, but they look more user-friendly than previous Samsung televisions.

I have had this TV for 8 months. It did develop a problem with a power cable. I called Samsung and they arranged for a in home repair. The repairman was very professional and capable. He replace the cable for me and all it good! Great TV. Love the smart features and the way it connects with my Galaxy S4 phone and tablet.
TV has Great Features
from Terre Haute, IN, USA
I purchased the TV while remodeling my family room. Mounted above the new fireplace, pretty cool. Connected to my surround sound system. Call the Samsung help line to get Netflix set up. Wonderful help. There are so many features, I am looking forward to using them. Great picture quality on HD channels.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Had same size Samsung for the last five year and it developed small lines across the screen. So I almost did not buy same brand. Hopefully they solved that problem. This TV had one of the best pictures out there and a reasonable price. The only problem was getting it to connect to the internet. It saw my wireless service and said it was connected but it would not transfer data without an error saying not connected. It needed a firmware update to fix the problem but without being able to transfer data you could not do the update. So I had to download the update on my computer and save to a USB drive then plug it into the TV and update from there. You need to be a little computer smart to make all this happen on a new TV. Also, when you turn on the TV it comes up in a Smart screen and requires a second pushing of a button on its remote to get the full TV screen. This is ok except when you are using a Comcast remote for turning on/off and channel changes this requires you to also use the TV remote to push the second button ( Enter)
TV behaves weird, just like the phones
The image quality is amazing but the tv's computer program is the same as the phones, after overloading the memory with just a little bit of info, the tv re starts it self, I bought the tv thinking it wouldn't have the same issues as their phones but I was wrong to not follow my gut, now I'm stuck with a tv that functions when ever it feels like it and that I can't have full control of features.
Love this TV
from Louisville, KY, USA
We bought this TV to go into the Family Room. We love this TV! It is the perfect size for our room. We also love the Smart TV features. The picture is incredible. We did buy the Samsung 450 Soundbar to enhance the movie sound, which seemed weak, but that is not an issue any longer. I would highly recommend this product.

This HDTV is not bad, but you don't need a smart tv if you don't have a cable
from Bonney Lake, WA
Wow! This tv set itself up (setup was really simple). It is truly a smart tv. The picture and sound are, without a question, outstanding. I would recommend a Samsung tv to anybody I know is or isn't looking for a new television.
