Durring my research of Consumer Reports and ConsumeSearch, and various other information distilleries I ended up picking this TV because it had all the features I needed, or wanted. Primarily it is going to be used as a replacement for standard TV, with its built in interface with products such as Netflix, HuluPLUS, and the built in Samsung TV Store. Right now, it serves as a great connection to those services in addition to being capable of providing clear great quality picture for my Xbox 360. Thought the size is a tad small for a living room TV, it is still large enough to read fine text clearly, and despite the remote draining battery life quickly, and the sliding interface being a combination of too touchy and not responsive enough at exactly the right time to make it frustrating to work with, overall it is a great product, and it interfaces with your Tablets and Smartphones if you wish to use them instead of your standard remote. Innovate Remote Design, poorly executed. Top Notch TV Quality, Superior Web-Interconnectivity, Good Menu interface overall, Feature Rich. DLNA certified with its own proprietary software for media streaming from your PC to your TV called AllShare.3D features not tested, nor verified for integrity (Overall, not really a selling feature for me, more interested in the interconnectivity between it and my other devices, and its interface with the internet) I will go out on a limb and say they are probably of high quality as well.Overall, very satisfied with product as it stands, only test of time will comment on its sustainability however. (Have owned for one month at the time of this review)

Nothing smart about it, the apps and software are horrid... Netflix app will not adjust video to fit screen, the image quality is terrible, and it takes 5 minutes to load 90 seconds of watchable video... I actually have problems streaming music over this SMART TV. Not a router/connection problem, b/c the PS3 wireless works flawlessly. The picture is great if you run it thru the PS3, otherwise not so much. I guess for a 40 inch LED 1080, with 240 refresh rate, its a decent bargain, nothing you need to rush out and buy............. BTW, you will be told to update your software to resolve connectivity problems, it helped, however before the update, it took 10 minutes to load 45 seconds of watchable video. I think the need updates to all apps and software, maybe even a complete redo. I may just send this thing back, still got 3 weeks............

Excellent TV but...
from Lubbock, TX
Comments about Samsung 40" Black LED 1080P 3D HDTV:
Amazing color and 3D on this TV. Great apps that let you watch anything from your favorite web based movies. I only have one complaint and that is the power cycling. However Samsung has handled that well! I have someone coming out in 2 days to look at it and see if it can be fixed. Way to go customer support. Finding amazing customer support now a days is almost impossible but Samsung knocked it out of the park!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This equipment fulfilled my expectations.
from Campinas - SÃ£o Paulo, Brazil
I am very satisfied with this equipment . It fulfilled most of my expectations. The only aspect that I didn't like was that I understand I could record most of my TV programs ,but it don't record from my cable TV, which is HDTV ,but it records only free digital HDTV's. I don't understand why it performs this way? Is it against law record a cable TV, because they have theirs on record systems? Carlos
great design, features
this tv set is overall good, best for its price and value
from Upstate, NY
I only have a couple gripes about my new TV: o I wish the tuner for direct access to my cable worked like my old ('90's old) TV. That is, my old TV receives all the same channels on the same numbers when connected directly to the cable as I can receive through the 'cable box'. With this new TV, some of the channels are available, but their numbers are all over the place and it's hard finding a specific channel. o I know it's a function of having a super slim TV, but I wish the speakers didn't face the rear of the TV. I found it very difficult getting a decent volume setting. I finally ended up buying a sound bar, and now I have sound and a good picture. All in all though, I'm happy with this TV....
from Logos, Nigeria
I enjoy the features and functions but has a problem with the power. It comes on and off and will. It's quite frustrating. I hope Samsung corrects this fault
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Just a fairy tale
from Odessa, Odessa Oblast, Ukraine
Very pleased with control arms, voice control, price-quality correspondence!
Very Clear Picture
from Waban, Newton, MA, USA
This is the sharpest, clearest picture we've ever seen on a flatscreen TV. This is our third Samsung. We love the TVs. It was extremely easy to connect to the Internet. Piece of cake.
Great TV for the money
About Me Enthusiast
This is a great TV for the price. It is better than some of the other Korean higher end TV's and the US brand TV's, for less money. It has deep blacks and white whites. Blu-ray's look fantastic. I would highly recommend this TV.
The TV is well done but AllShare software is barely usable
from Bangkok, Thailand
I want to say first that the actual TV itself is a wonderful piece of electronics. First off the picture quality is incredible. 3D works perfectly and easily for videos designed for 3d and those that aren't. The features of the product are too numerous to mention. It exceeded my expectations in every way. The problem is the AllShare software. It is cumbersome and difficult to use. Refreshing your shared files from your computer takes a very long time and often doesn't work correctly at the end. I find myself refreshing and waiting, refreshing and waiting, etc and finally forced to give up, shut the program down, restart and wait again and then MAYBE it actually refreshes. When it does, finally, refresh then more likely than not it no longer recognizes the TV and must be shut down and restarted again and again until finally and apparently through random chance the TV is again recognized. The troubleshooting and help provided is incomplete or nonexistent. To put it simply I absolutely love the tv, and with equal emotion HATE the software. Please work harder to create a better software solution for what is really a very simple task. Your smartphones are great, maybe ask for some help from the Android software producers to fix this miserable junk AllShare program.

Samsung knows how to make them
I am really impressed at the quality of the picture and the sound on this TV. It puts our older LCD HDTV (by another high end brand) to shame. I was skeptical that it would really be that big a difference, but it is. The sound is quite impressive as well. And the SmartTV features are just cool. Wish it wasn't quite so pricey, but you get quality for what you pay here.
