Features:

Picture Quality

  • Full HD 1080p
    The realistic detail of Full HD images invites you to enjoy a viewing experience that redefines reality
  • Clear Motion Rate 120
    A Clear Motion Rate of 120 is a great level of motion-clarity. TVs with this CMR can display action-packed movement with sharpness, clarity and contrast. Clear Motion Rate was developed to accurately measure how well an LCD or LED TV can depict fast-moving images. Previously, motion-clarity was calculated by the frame refresh rate alone. But CMR offers a more complete measure by calculating 3 factors: frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology

I went to big box store that had rows of tvs and the picture on the Samsung stood out from the rest. I got a great price and took it home and put the stand on hooked up my Roku and was watching Tv in less than 15 minutes. Did I mention I'm a 66 yrs old and technically challenged? This is my bedroom tv and I'm using an indoor antenna and Roku and the tv has a great picture. If you are going to be using several additional devices you may want a model with more ports. This an easy to use tv with a simple to use remote. The only improvement I would make is glow in the dark numbers on remote. The sound quality is good. I'm very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend this tv. . I did research on line and found Samsung tvs highly rated.

I bought this TV today after assessing the features of the various models. I wanted the Internet apps and especially the built in wireless adapter. I love the picture and the performance of the speakers. The TV is in the master bedroom. I have analog cable and DTV cable. I was surprised at the quality of the analog cable channels. As the salesman at Best Buy told us the speakers are adequate (quite good) in the bedroom. I am able to use a USB mouse and keyboard. The remote is nearly useless for any character input for setting up the wireless connection and for the internet. The master bedroom on the second floor at the other side of the house from the wireless router. I am using 802.11n at both 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghz. I was initially unable to configure the wifi on the TV. I brought the TV to the den and connected it with an ethernet cable and updated the firmware and checked out the Internet features. I found the setup easy with the wired connection. In the den I was easily able to connect wirelessly. Back in the master bedroom I had problems. The TV only intermittently detected the wireless signals. When it detected a signal 2.4 GHz showed three bars and at 5 GHz there were two bars. After much trial and error I was able to connect to wifi at 2.4 GHz. Error messages are non-existent. Sometimes when searching for a signal the TV would not accept inputs from the remote. It was pass/fail with no help diagnosing the problem. I found that some web pages require a newer version of the Flash player. I have not discovered how to update the player.

        Started a new Karaoke service and was contemplating on what size monitor to get due to additional features i wanted to show, hands down this item worked better than i had thought. The clarity, weight, options and most important the experience people have when seeing the screen this big and clear makes it a wow factor. Glad i stick with Samsung products.

                          Samsung continues to be the Best of the Best ! Extremly happy, Smart Hub easy to use, Picture quality is superb! My only error I assumed that the 2 T.V.'s I bought would be Bluetooth . Having Smart hubs, only dissapointment, I had purchased this & a 30" for the Bedroom, within days of each other. Also purchased earphones the New Samsung ones to use with the T.V.'s. Found out they will not work with either of my models and returned! Not the UHD models can use them, can't afford replacing either T.V., Saved up for 2 yrs. to be able to buy these, Lol. Still love my purchases! Will continue to purchase Samsung and recommend over all other brands! I have the SMT-800, Samsung TabS 10.1 Octa-core tablet, it was a researched investment, knowing it would be a while before I could replace, & how fast computers advance and become behind in usefullness. I chose the Octa-core, being superior quality, & knowing that it was at the forefront of all other androids tablets being manufactured & offered on the market, it will last me longer, because of quality & in being more advanced it would stay a front runner for some time. I is 19 months later, and my tablet is still top line, Thank you, Samaung. And I still pull it out turn on and show people the video that came in my main screen, the amoiled screen is so bright, colors crisp & sharp, it is as if you are in virtual reality! I am sure many have been swayed toward Samsung because of that wonderful breathtaking video I love to share on my tablet !
