I did a great deal of research on TVs trying to find which one suited our needs and desires and would be a good price for the money. I finally settled on this model, the 50". First off the picture is amazing. Setup is fairly hassle free which is always a plus when dealing with tech that has lots of features. The TV speakers however seem to be dismally low in volume, at least when using some of the features. I would recommend get a home theater system if you really want sound quality to be on par with the TV's picture quality. The on screen keyboard can be a bit cumbersome to deal with as the touch pad on the remote is VERY sensitive. Like many other consumers I read before buying this TV who have it or other TVs similar to this... buy the keyboard if you're going to be doing a lot of text input. One disappointment that I've noticed so far is that the TV features express that there is a motion control interface and that you can password protect your TV through facial recognition; however it doesn't let you know, without digging that you need to attach a camera as the TV doesn't have an camera built in to access these features. No real big deal, but it's just another accessory I'll have to get later for apps like Skype will need it. Likewise, from looking at it, it seems you can't have both voice controls and motion controls active at the same time, which is a bummer. As "smart" as these things are I don't see why you simply couldn't be able to utilize all the interface tech with the TV at once. Different users in a household may very well have different preferences for interfacing with the TV. One thing I am curious on and I have yet to find an answer to because I'll have to wait until I buy a camera is to find out if the facial recognition for he password can be "hacked" by using a picture. We have a couple of very smart kiddos and I can see them trying to do this. I have yet to try out the Active 3D and I have high hopes for it. I've heard great things about it, but I didn't get the TV mainly for 3D so I'm not overly concerned about 3D. However the TV only comes with 2 3D glasses so I also have to get more glasses so the whole family can enjoy the 3D feature. I would think it would be better for Samsung to include 4 glasses with any TV that's 40" or more as many families will buy something this big so everyone could enjoy. The design is very sleek and smooth. The TV is amazingly thin and light. The swivel base, while plastic seems to do its job and the TV swivels easily and smoothly. The TV easily connected to our wifi which is a plus. The initial update took about 8 minutes, which isn't too long but it's definitely not a case of plug in and go! The picture is phenomenal by my standards so we've really enjoyed the sharpness, color, and clarity of the display. The AnyNet+ feature works as advertised and we can control our surround sound system's volume from the TV's remote. I was surprised at how easy that was as I figured it wouldn't work as easily and as seamlessly as was advertised. We still have yet to attempt the AllShare feature via my husband's Samsung Galaxy Tab 2. But this TV in many ways has so many features that if I waited to extensively test them all before I wrote a review by the time I got around to it much newer and better models would likely have come out and no one would be paying attention to reviews for this TV! All in all I'm very pleased with this TV.

Smart TV for challenged person NOT a good idea
Set TV pieces together more from common sense. Poor instructions. Didn't take the TV out of box 100% correct because warnings fell out after I had it out. Took me maybe an hour...Read complete review
Set TV pieces together more from common sense. Poor instructions. Didn't take the TV out of box 100% correct because warnings fell out after I had it out. Took me maybe an hour to even get TV on WITH A PICTURE. Never could set the remote up. Was late at night so I couldn't talk to someone so I got on the Q&A website. Response didn't help me at all. By chance I realized my cable remote worked with the TV. I've been so busy the last coupe weeks I haven't had time to call in the daytime (know it will take a long time). HD is jumpy some times, especially when using PREVIOUS on remote. Maybe that's because I've got a monster cable instead of HDMI. HD is really nice when we watch that. Also don't know if I should have 'cable' attached from protection (like an extension cord with multiple plug-ins - can't think of name right now). Have a DVD player but haven't tried to hook it up. This is so different from my 40" 530 Samsung. Not a techie - no smart phone, Blue Ray player, laptop, etc. Just registered TV today - over two weeks since we bought it - couldn't figure out website that came up from email in previous attempts

Hits the sweet spot between price and performance
from Flagstaff, AZ, USA
For the price this TV will perform as well as those coming in at a much higher price point. Good crisp picture with a lot of settings for picture. Sound quality is a little poor but the design only allows for rear facing speakers. Overall a great buy and would do so again
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Awesome TV: Aps and features need work
About Me Casual User
Amazing TV, but the Smart functions continue to have issues. Netflix and other Aps constantly lock up or shut down. Had Abt out once already to reset everything and fix the bugs. but still lingering issues.
Service and delivery comments:
Great picture, poor sound
from Highland Park, IL
Great features, but difficult to learn. Remote is almost too simple.Sound is poor, but I guess normal for this type TV. We'll probably buy sound bar, which is likely what they want us to do.Great picture.
This product has great features

The picture is fantastic. Love all the smart features. Easy to set up. Love that there is no black frame around the tv.
Big step up from the first Smart TV's
from Athens, Ohio
About Me Enthusiast
This is more what I was expecting from the first Samsung Smart TV's. Still need to try out the 3D, but that is not why I chose this TV. Just wish all of my Time Warner remote options were available on the Samsung remote. And the fact that the menu always goes back to channel 1 is annoying. Voice commands help a bit with that. Image is awesome, like my other Samsung LEDs, sound is improved.
Great TV - Remote is confusing
from Ashton, IA
The picture quality on this smart 3D TV is excellent. Have purchased 2 of these models. Only thing I don't like is the remote, but the second one came with a galaxy tablet that can be used as the remote and works pretty well.
from Thousand Oaks
I am happy with this TV, had more features then what I expected
