Summary: The picture is pretty, but the "Smart Hub" software and customer support are awful. We've had this TV for a year. The interface has gotten worse with introduction of firmware updates. It is now slower and even more crash prone.
Summary: When I ordered a TV off of Amazon Warehouse, they messed my order up. Instead of shipping me the 55" LG Cinema-3D edge-lit LED tv that I'd pair for, they shipped me a lower-model 51" Samsung Plasma with no 3D but full 1080p.
Summary: I have the 64 inch version and it is the perfect hub for our family media room. Picture is just stunning compared with the LCD TV it replaced. My son's XBox graphics with motion are simply amazing.
Summary: I read so much stuff about this TV. A lot good and a lot bad. Amazon'a scratch n dent selection was very tempting because of the price. I've read delivery nightmares, sound quality reviews, picture quality reviews etc, etc. I eventually just said "go for it and find out".
Summary: IF SAMSUNG'S INTERNAL SERVERS GO DOWN YOUR SO CALLED "SMART" TV CAN NOT ACCESS ONLINE CONTENT. Recently samsung's servers went down and I could not access amazon, vudu, netflix or any other source of online content.
Summary: TV powers itself off. Audio freezes and repeats like a skipping record. Apps constantly crash. Samsung support not helpful at all. Loved our first Samsung television so decided to buy another. Was professionally installed. Began having problems before we had it a week.

Summary: My high end Samsung 52" 3D TV has developed a horizontal black line across the entire upper portion of the screen. The TV was made May 2010. Samsung reports they need $1000 to repair this problem since the display must be replaced. A web search indicates this problem is not rare.
Summary: It was great but came damaged during shipping. It had warranty so it got fixed for free. I would like anybody who love 3D picture TVs to buy this. It's a small theatre style entertainment but great value.
Summary: While all the extras (camera, voice control, motion control) really barely function, everything else about this television is great. The image quality is stellar, everything loads super quick, everything from Amazon Prime to Vimeo has an app for this television, and they all look amazing and are...
