The television is, without a doubt, magnificent! The crystal clear picture and detail is unbelievable. I used an online site to calibrate it based upon the website's recommendation and am so very pleased with the picture. This is a marked improvement from my former LG 42" Plasma television. 4K had to be seen to be believed. I just finished watching STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS and my breath was taken away. This even beat the sharpness when I saw it in the theater! I also purchased the ROKU 4 and Samsung 4K BluRay Disc Player and both work flawlessly with the television and provide absolutely beautiful results. Keep in mind, your Internet service must be reliable and speedy enough to resist buffeting. I also have the TV linked to my TiVo and it works perfectly. What is especially amazing is that the TV also "knows" when you are using a particular device and automatically turns itself on and used the correct HDMI port. (You have four ports to utilize.) Now, why did I give it just four stars? Well, truth be told, if I could have, I would have only taken away a half of a star, but that, of course, is not possible. The only flaw that I found with the television is that, when mounted, the screen is extremely reflective so that if you have a lamp on opposite of the screen, you will have to turn the lamp off or the reflection is too great to enjoy the picture. Thus, you do not want a window behind you when you set up the TV, or any strong lights, for that matter. For me, it was a ready fix as I merely moved the lamp and all is well. Nevertheless, it is something to keep in mind if your purchase this television. (My former Plasma TV, mounted in the same place, had no issues with the screen being as reflective and the lamp was in the same place without issues for several years. I only noticed an issue when I mounted this television.) I really believe that you will be blown away by the picture and the lack of issues with motion blur, as this as 240 motion ratio and has no movie "judder" whatsoever.

The title says it all. The display is the best in its price class. Absolutely. The only thing truly better is OLED, which costs twice as much. The system software and apps are the worst I have seen in a major brand. Basic functions have problems and the apps are way behind what you see on Roku and other third-party devices. My recommendation is buy this for the display, but plan on using a Roku or Fire TV with a high-quality AVR for the best experience. You will grow old waiting for these folks to fix the problems with their software.

      This is easily the best TV available at this price point. Even cable TV looks much better than my old 1080p screen. PC games look gorgeous and input lag is not noticeable. Best TV for 2016.

          I powered on my new SUHD TV and everything was super great (Netflix, Amazon Prime, ..) until I wanted to display contents from my FIOS Quantum... What a disappointment!!! Crappie image (like NOT HD), bad display ratio, ... My FIOS Quantum Home comes with 2 boxes: *A VMS1100 (Bigger primary base unit) - Leaving room where my SUHD TV is connected to *A IPC1100 P2 (Smaller secondary device) - Another room After playing with all the settings of my Smart remote with no success , I was starting to think to return it :-( I then tried to switch my FIOS TV box with then one in then other room (The IPC1100 P2 which is smaller) and VOILA!!! I AM HAVING A BEAUTIFULL, CRISP, COLORFULL PICTURE! Thank you and this should be elevated to support so that they can help customers that might report the same issue.

          Now I have my own remote control.

          The sound is good, we decided not to buy a sound bar at this time. We re running sound still through the stereo or just the new tv.
          The fidelity seems as good at home as it did in the store.

              The 4K SUHD is a technology on its own league with too realistic and brilliant color rendition. Almost felt like we were next to a window facing the actors in the movie or next to the football receiver. Oh my God! The Samsung sound bar was a perfect match despite the strong recommendation of the audiophile to get the Definitive speakers.

                We got the 65" its a great tv I love how the hdmi ports show whats on them like Xbox one PS4 Directv I just wish said Wii U too. Its so cool how you can just turn on a system and it automatically switches to the right port. We have samsung phones tablets and a laptop and this TV was a great addition. The hdmi ports with the umbilical is great for hiding cords. The picture is Awesome. I love the simplistic remote but it took a second to get used to with the directv but after that i had no problems. The settings really make a difference on how the tv looks so look some up. The tv also has a game mode they really looked for gamers with this one. :) I would recommend this tv to anyone.

                    Upgraded from a 50" 720p flat panel to the 2016 Samsung 65" SUHD TV, and what a difference it has made. The color is bright and beautiful, which is great for me, even though my wife compares it to "those super bright billboards you see driving down the highway". The thin bezel is what convinced her - this TV is no more than a couple inches wider than the old 50" TV. I've been leery about the "smart" part of smart TVs, traditionally preferring to treat the TV as a dumb monitor. In the week I've had the TV, though, I've found I've been using the built in apps (Plex, Youtube, and Amazon) more than either the Roku or PC I have connected to the TV. (Current caveat - the built-in YouTube app doesn't appear to want to stream above 1080p however. Samsung - please fix this!)
