I've always wanted a high quality HDTV and this model has exceeded my expectations. I've had other HDTV experiences LED and LCD and after watching this TV you will be spoiled on the clarity, you can never look at another TV the same again. Even if there is not a lot of 4K content out yet, but when you see the potential of 4K and how amazing it looks you will see how great HD content will be when they start pushing up to this. Even if there is not a lot of 4K out there this TV still sets the bar very high and makes everything look amazing. The upscaling makes normal Blue Rays almost seem like they are 4K quality. Even major TV channels that run 1080i look fantastic. Watching movie channels has become a whole new experience for me. One drawback that I do see is some TV channels just do not upscale that well. The bad HD quality out there and standard definition will look a tad bit blurry on the TV but adjusting setting will help with that. The 3D feature is also amazing paired with the clarity, I'm just blown away by it as well. The smart TV functions work smoothly and I'm very happy with the response of the remotes and what you can do with the TV. I haven't mastered all of the features, but the set up was very easy and I was up and running in virtually minutes after connecting everything. Having a very good internet connection and strong WIFI signal makes things smoother. Sound is surprisingly good if you use the clear voice function or movie setting. I was thinking about getting a sound bar but now I don't think its needed. Now for the drawbacks, like I said before the upscaling can be bad for some HD TV channels that are just not shot with quality HD cameras or have quality signals. I wish they could make a feature where you can turn off the upscaling or choose a select output to watch in. I also don't like the picture ratio choices, it seems there should be more but really I am nitpicking. I'm satisfied with the Smart Hub and the apps, but I see that the Netflix app is kinda glitchy right now, one day it works now it does not. I'm not sure if this is just an app issue with Netflix or the TV. I hope they work on that because Netflix is the one streaming 4K content so without the Netflix app the ability to stream 4K content suffers and hurts the fun of enjoying 4K on the TV. But I'm extremely glad I made this purchase and would recommend anyone that wants a top of the line TV to go get this model right now. It is extremely worth it.

I am a satellite technician, and I work with all sorts of televisions every day. I have been a fan of Samsung products for many years, recommending them to and installing them for my customers, and buying them myself. They tend to have the best price/performance ratio I have found, and while this television is not terrible, I am certainly dissatisfied with the smart features, and some other things. This television has an excellent picture. It is bright and vibrant, with excellent contrast, and it seems to hide artifacting acceptably, even with fast motion. Smart Hub has an easier interface to use than televisions they produced last year, and they did away with the default nonsense behavior of bringing up the smart hub when you turn on the television that they had for a little while. It has narrow borders, without protrusions, such as the lowered Samsung logo that has been the standard on older Samsung televisions. That old style wasn't normally an issue, but sometimes customers of mine have had issues with mounting those televisions in tight spaces, so this may be a benefit to those people. I also find the narrow and uniform borders this television has to be more stylish, which is a personal preference of mine that others may share. Speakers are in the rear, which all televisions are lately. This rear speaker design is usually not a problem, but generally tends to become a problem with tight enclosures and especially with tight, enclosed wall mount configurations. It is also a problem for people with hearing problems. This rear speaker design is so ubiquitous that you can't find a television without it any more, so I can't call it a pro or a con, but it is something to consider if you have tight enclosures or hearing problems, and you may also consider a sound bar to go along with it. The volume and sound are ridiculous. Volume goes from 0 to 100, which theoretically gives you fine volume control, but in practice makes you have to hold your volume button for a few seconds before you notice any appreciable change in volume. It also seems to be terrible with the volume of analogue television. I have found that on most analogue stations, from my cable provider, this television doesn't seem to be able to provide enough volume. I can turn it up to 100, and it barely sounds loud enough, but change the channel to a digital channel without lowering the volume, and it blows the doors off. I don't have that problem with my old television. This won't be an issue for people with satellite, or even cable with a converter box. It is only a problem when you use the tuner. The smart features of this television really need some work. I'm not sure if it is because of the hardware or the software, or a combination of both, but having used the smart features of other Samsung televisions that work fine, I am not impressed. The first night I purchased this television, I tried to watch a television series on Netflix. It played the first episode fine, but when it went to the next episode, it froze up. I couldn't exit Netflix, change the source, or anything else. The only button on the remote that seems to work at this point is the power button. When this happens, and you turn the television off, it takes near a full minute before you can turn the television back on, and when it comes back on, as always when you turn on the television, you have to wait for a minute or two before you can use any features in the smart hub. I thought this may be only a problem with Netflix's software, which I assume Netflix writes themselves, but I've had it freeze when using Youtube, and when streaming video from my computer and phone as well, which tells me that there is more to it than bad software from a single company. I've had this television for a week, and it has frozen on me at least 5 times already. One other problem is that Samsung has a screen saver, which theoretically is only supposed to come up if the picture doesn't change for some period of time, which you set in the menu. This seems to be the case generally, but if I watch netflix, then switch back to video from an HDMI input, without first turning off the television, after a couple hours, the screen saver will come on, even though the video has been changing. This is obviously a software bug that can probably be easily fixed with a future software update, but it is still an annoyance. It only has 2 HDMI ports. This means you can have your satellite and blu-ray connected, but if you want to connect anything else, like a gaming device, or other device, you will have to unplug something else. Low numbers of inputs are common with manufacturers on their lower price point televisions though. It saves them money, which allows them to sell them for less, but two HDMI ports has been too few for several years now. Overall, I'm barely satisfied with this television, but I wouldn't be if I had not gotten it as a black Friday deal. It would have been back in the box, and at the store the next day. I am very disappointed in Samsung for churning out this television, when they usually have much higher quality. Overall, this television is passable, and I won't be returning it, but I won't be recommending it to any customers.

                              I've had this set for over a year now. It has been an excellent TV. I recently readjusted the sharpness and video mode to produce a sharper, brighter display.
