SAVE YOUR BOX!!!

b52, Amazon
23 March 2012
  • Summary: For the most part, I love this TV. But getting satisfaction from Samsung for a problem with it has been a royal pain, and is why it only gets 3 stars. As some others have noted, I had the flashlight orbs on the left side of the screen. I called Samsung, and was told to "wait two weeks and if it doesn't clear up, call back." I gave them 3 weeks and called back. I was told they would send me a USB firmware update. It never came.

Buyer's remorse

C. Farrell, Amazon
10 February 2012
  • Summary: I'm a photographer so I probably have a more critical eye than the average person, but I'm not happy with the picture quality of this TV. I should also say this is the first LCD TV we've ever bought, finally unplugging our 20+-year-old CRT. So I don't know if all LCD TVs suffer from this, or if the Samsung is just worse than others. But the noise reduction is awful. It causes faces to look plastic, edges are smeared, and the entire image is riddled with blurry patches.

Horrible back light bleeding.

Lights On, Amazon
19 November 2011
  • Summary: Bright images and scenes on the TV look great and have lots of detail. I was perfectly happy with this TV until I watched a movie in a dark room and a dark scene came onto the screen. The TV's economy side showed it's ugly face with an extreme amount of back light bleeding extending nearly 1/3 of the way across the screen on both the left and the right sides going all the way from the top to the bottom.

Mixed feelings so far......

Amazon fan, Amazon
30 September 2011
  • Summary: Based on all of the glowing reviews, I did not imagine that I would have any complaints about the tv. To be fair, I have not used all of the features; however my primary use is to watch tv (i.e. not use it as a monitor or for gaming as others mentioned). Pros: really clear picture, vibrant colors, and super easy to set up.

Good Quality - Annoying Oddities

Nikolai Verian, Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this television as my first HD television ever. I was amazed by the video quality once I hooked it up with HDMI cables and I have no complaints with the quality of picture or sound. However, from the get-go, I've had problems with this television. It takes almost 30 seconds for it to start up and sometimes I have to press power 4-5 times in order to turn it on.

tuner is not as good as the series 4 TV's

jimmyjim, Amazon
9 January 2011
  • Summary: I also have this TV in the series 4 models so I expected good things from this series 5 model. The picture quality for mpeg-4 digital reception (Irish channels) and analogue (from my old sky decoder box) is very very good. I expected this one to be the same but alas it is not. You do have to adjust the settings to improve the picture - I found movie mode to be the best - all others are poor.

Screen scrambles when I adjust volume - anyone else??

Shelly, Amazon
11 November 2010
  • Summary: Bought the product in Sep 2010. Easy to set up and looked great. However after 2-3 days everytime I adjusted volume the symbol on the left hand side disappeared on the screen and the screen scrambles. Therefore I sent it back to Amazon who sent out replacement. Was suppose to arrive on Fri but did not arrive till the following Monday - annoying as I had taken the day off work. Anyway was glad to have a replacment as I did like the look of the TV.

Conversor Digital Péssimo

e-bit, Bondfaro
28 March 2011
  • Summary: O conversor digital é péssimo, os canais sem a conversão funcionam perfeitamente, era para o conversor digital funcionar também. Mas não é isso que acontece. O conversor digital distorce a imagem, não dá para assistir, tendo que assistir na sintonia comum. Sem poder usar o recurso digital.
  • Pros: A imagem é muita boa quando sitonizado na imagem HD
  • Cons: O conversor digital é péssimo, os canais sem a conversão funcionando perfeitamente, era para o conversor converter para digital. Mas não é isso que acontece. O conversor digital distorce a imagem, não dá para assistir, tendo que assistir na sintonia comum. Sem poder usar o recurso digital.
