Summary: Picture lives up to ALL the hype, but random disconnections from my home wifi-network can get annoying. Also haven't figured out how to use my Yamaha speakers and the TV speakers to work at the same time (without lag), and Samsung customer reps will only assist with Samsung product questions. But I do love not having to rely on a "middle man" (like Apple TV or western digital) to connect me to the internet/apps (Spotify, Netflix, Web etc) or to my home media collection.
Summary: I bought this product on the basis of the CNET review and other reviews. The picture is the best I have ever seen in either LED or Plasma TV. My close friend Steve who purchased a similar panasonic product last year claims that the Samsung picture is better than on his product. There are some warts on the product but nothing that is worth packaging it up and sending it back within the 30 day purchase period (no malfunctions showed up, just product bugs.
Summary: This television has a fantastic picture! It performs very well in our very bright living room. It also has outstanding off-angle viewing. It has lots of features and an intuitive setup. Shipping left a lot to be desired. Crutchfield advised that the shipping company would call for delivery. They sent a tracking number, which I used for arranging someone to help me get it inside and assembled (over 100 lbs. boxed).
Pros: Simply outstanding picture in HD. It can be viewed in a very bright environment and the sound is actually better than I was expecting.
Cons: The auto-brightness (ECO feature) needed to be turned off due to dimming too low, even in a very bright room. Once off it worked well. No component video input, but I knew that prior to purchase. Puts out a lot of heat!
Summary: Easy setup, need two people. GREAT picture. Remote is easy to use and intuitive. When I turn on my Blu Ray, the input automatically switches to that source. Use of the wireless keyboard is nice, but it doesn't carry over to the set top box.
Summary: Although my first model shipped was defective, Crutchfield had a replacement out to me the next day. Picture quality is excellent. Smarthub is pretty cool for streaming. I use the Plex app often and everything works great.
Pros: Picture. Apps. Streaming.
Cons: The secondary remote is difficult to use. Price is higher than others in this category.
