Don't do it! Depends on Samsung Smart TV, which is sometimes unavailable because of high network traffic.

Summary: Although the TV itself is fine, if you're buying this for the Samsung Smart TV capability, don't! It depends on connecting to the Samsung servers through your internet connection, and on some days, their servers are overwhelmed and you can't connect. Which means you can't access Hulu or Netflix or whatever else you'd like to watch. Very frustrating to spend the extra money on this TV and then not have the service be available when you'd like to watch something.
Manufacturing defects not yet resolved - purple hue
13 November 2012
Summary: Multiple models of Samsung TVs fail just beyond one year. A horizontal purple hue covers the top half of the screen rendering the tv un-watchable. This is well documented across many of their lines, yet they have yet to fix the issue, nor replace the defective sets. Their help line is useless and act as though it's the customers fault. Don't risk it, but another brand...again, this is happening across many samsung model lines.
