Not Upgradable and Likely Capacitor Problems
Eric W. Sullender, Amazon
29 July 2011
Summary: I have a Samsung LN52A750 TV and a BD-P2500 BluRay player. When I purchased these the Amazon and Samsung product pages claimed they were "internet connected" and "firmware upgradeable" so that they would be compatible with new services that were coming available. I am very frustrated to learn that I cannot upgrade these devices to support such common services such as Pandora streaming music, Amazon Instant Video, or really anything other than Netflix.
Summary: After much research and spending over $2000 for this TV (close to 2.5years ago), the TV gave up. When turned on the bell sound would come on, the backlight would be on, no picture; the bottom red led light would turn on and off about 4 times in about 25 seconds and you could hear 2 consecutive clicks; the TV turns off and cycles back on. This would not stop, even after unplugging the TV and plugging it back into a different outlet!
Summary: I have owned this tv for two years and it has worked good until today. It seems Samsung has a capacitor defect in alot of there tv's and mine went out today. I talked to Samsung today and they refused to fix it even thoe they were aware of the defective capacitors. When a company is aware of a defect and refuse to fix the problem that is pretty crappy, don't you think?
Summary: I've had this TV since 2008, and paid $2500 for it from Amazon. It was the #1 TV on my list after several weeks of research. The TV has been great until today. It suddenly powered off, then started cycling off and on, with the indicator light, the clicking sound it makes when turning it off or on, but no picture. A call to Samsung turned up, it sounds like, a common problem that Samsung said they offer a "one time" fix on. Something to do with a capacitor burning out.
Summary: Like many buyers who have been impressed with Samsung's brite color and cheaper price (compare to Sony), I bought this model (LN52A750)back in 2/2009 and starting to have problem with the TV's power continuously turning itself on and off. So in less than 2 years of light usage, this TV has now gone bad and unusable. Samsung's support refer me to a local TV repair shop and their initial estimate was $350.
Summary: TV Grade: A- Pros: - HD Picture Quality: As I say below, this is my first LCD TV, but I've seen many in my years and the PQ is excellent, especially considering the price. The blacks look great, the colors pop, and once I played with the picture settings, it looked even better - SD Picture Quality: For a 52" LCD the standard definition picture is very good. While obviously not as good a CRT or a non-HD-LCD, it still is excellent.
Summary: I purchased my Samsung LN52A750 in August of 2008. The picture is really good and in general I like the TV a lot. Early December 2009 I started to experience problems with the TV turning itself off and on. At first it would do this for a minute or so and then stay on and work fine. After several days of it doing this it just never came back on. It would constantly turn itself off and on and i was forced to unplug the TV.
REALLY GREAT PICTURE LCD WITH LOTS OF INPUTS/OUTPUTS
1 October 2009
Summary: PROS: Excellent quality picture with a very good viewing angle. The speakers are in the back of the set and many people have complained about this, I personally think it is better, the sound quality is good. Some people have also complained about a halo around the frame caused by the red border. I have found no halo or no distractions from this an any ambient lighting condition. Lots of inputs/outputs and adjustments to suit your needs.
Summary: As a TV I cannot complain. The 1080p resolution is great. The 120hz update rate is amazing. Watching television, playing games, and watching movies is very enjoyable. So all the fundamental reasons for me getting a new TV are met, however all the 'extra' features come up a little short. The DLNA feature currently useless for me. The Samsung server software can only host videos and pics that are on your local harddrive. I have all my stuff on an external harddrive.
Summary: As a person that has researched into buying a great HDTV for 3 ENTIRE YEARS, I would love to contribute a full and thorough review for this TV so EVERYBODY can see and fully understand this TV. I will talk about my methodology in purchasing this particular TV at the end. I decided to pull the trigger and purchase the 52" size of the A750 model on 1/1/09(Thurs). The order goes through like any other Amazon order does.
