Summary: the tv was wonderful out of the box. i loved it. 9 months in, the screen cracked on me. i contacted samsung. the only thing samsung did for me was give me the runnaround. they had me jump through a bunch of hoops by taking pictures of the sides, back, front of the tv and providing my contact info, serial # asap. after getting all of that done, they tell me, "sorry, we can't do anything for you b/c the cause of the damage was from an 'impact.
EXCELLANT HDTV BUT DOES NOT SUPPORT AMAZON PRIME VIDEO
6 April 2012
Summary: I purchased almost the identical (50 inch vs. 51 inch) model about a year an a half ago and have been extremely pleased with it. I wanted another TV for my den and bought this model which I assumed would be practically identical to my other one other than the size of the frame. However, Samsung decided on this newer model to NOT support my Amazon Prime videos. This was not the fault of Amazon.
Summary: I recently purchased this TV and thought it was perfect...perfect until I watched hockey and noticed brightness "pops". The pops happened as the camera panned from center ice to the goals. It got worse as the game went on. While watching a movie today, the TV had issues where the scene was set in a bright area and the camera panned from one face to another.
