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.

After weeks of research I bit the bullet on this model because of its features and supposed black uniformity. Unfortunately I wish I hadn't. My whole experience has been a nightmare from damaged deliveries to replaced panels. Let me first say the picture minus the black levels are incredible. If you are in a bright scene with no dark areas around the corners then you are going to love what you see. The moment you start going into the dark scenes you will see spotlighting. I had plenty of lcd's, led's and moved onto a plasma. Since the format is dead I went back to led because the problems I had with them were supposedly fixed. The reviews for this model were amazing and all gloating about the black uniformity. My model is the complete opposite. I attached two pictures of the same scene. The first is from my original panel and the second from the new panel a tech installed. The new panel is better but there iare still problem spots. One spot on the bottom left where the led is so visible that I have to turn hdmi black to normal, dynamic contrast to off and backlight down to 6. This helps a little but the light still shines through. The top right is patchy where the led are. Its not as bright and vibrant as the lower left led but if the scenes dark on the right and light on the left the problem appears. I know some people will say its not that bad but this is a tv that is top of the line, not a low end model from a competitor. There shouldn't be any flaws, period. I should have waited for this years model because I'm sure these problems are fixed but now I'm left with a TV on my credit card that I wish I never bought.

          Comments about Samsung Silver 55" UHD 4K LED 3D Smart HDTV:

          At first I thought the curve was gimicky but once I got it in my house I am very impressed. The color quality is fantastic and it upscales very well. The only gripe I have is that when using the smart features to play video like Netflix or Hulu there is motion blur and color banding, but I guess this is because it can't upscale the content. There have been some issues with Netflix working from the Smart Hub and it seems like any update fixes it but then after the next one it stops working again. Overall though I have been impressed with the TV and am extremely satisfied.

                      This TV has an excellent picture and 4K looks pretty amazing. I'm not a 3D guy so its nice to have the feature but I dont really use it. They have a lot of great Apps through the app store and it syncs up great with any media devices on the network for streaming. The one area the TV lacks is that the built in software could be a little less buggy. After some routine updates, certain apps will stop functioning. Whether or not this is Samsung's fault or the App maker's fault remains unclear. The remote is also pretty cool in that its got a built in pointer which is awesome for not having to type long usernames/passwords for apps among other things.

                                My biggest concern is Smart Hub. Many times i had problems with apps, like freeze, doesn't work well, Youtube app, always appear the message "Network Cable Disconnected" and sometimes the remote control doesn't work. If I could i would buy another TV with better performance.
