Summary: I've had this 40" set for over two years and have had none of the reported problems. It works fine, has a great picture and has been a joy to use. I have added a sound bar and that makes a lot of difference in the sound quality.
Summary: I bought this television at the beginning of 2012 and used it regularly, not constantly. The screen has now turned orange - the kind of orange that means it's completely fried. The nearest service is more than 90 minutes' drive away. For $500-plus, I expect a TV to last longer than a year and a half. My next TVs will not be Samsung.
Summary: A company that started the flat-screen craze. by the time you read this review there will most likely be a better product out there, but I was a college student and feel that sometimes price is the only factor. it was very reasonable I would suggest buying it around cyber Monday deals or sometime in the summer where the deals are also very good. Received it on-time and not damaged. cant complain had it a year and it has severed me well.
