Have only recently purchased this TV and am quite satisfied with everything connected to the product EXCEPT THE OPERATION OF THE REMOTE. While the remote has all the bells and whistles included, it falls quite short in the simplest of functions. Specifically, the mere changing of channels can be challenging in that one needs to aim the remote to a specific point for this function to work. Failure to locate the proper point results in multiple attempts to change channels. I might also add that the problem persists even with the IR extender installed. Most frustrating to say the least.

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.

                        Cons

                        • 2 hdmi ports
                        • cable connects from back

                        Best Uses

                          TV has a great picture. I don't see any pixelation like I did on my previous LED tv. Controls are similar to other TV's, so was easy to use without looking at the manual too often. It would of been nice if the cables connected from the side. Because of the rear connector I had to purchase a new wall mount. This TV is not able to mount close to the wall. I was surprised that there are only 2 HDMI ports. With so many devices that get connected, 2 HDMI ports is not enough.

                                  I have had my television about two weeks now and I have yet to use all of the great features it has to offer. The HD and stereo are great and the match up with my X1 terminal by Comcast are a great match. I wish that I had more time to enjoy my Samsung Smart TV.
