I am happy with this tv
7 November 2014
Summary: I am happy with this tv. The "subwoofer" is not what you think. If this tv's speakers are really better than most, i would hate to hear the other ones. The speakers are not what makes a tv though. The picture is nice and clear. I feel like having a 1080p tv is nice, but i dont have much media to take advantage of it. Most of the things i watch i set to fill the screen, and it makes things look kinda wide and stuff... but whatever its not bad. I use this as a pc monitor.
ConnectShare USB Hardware is Lacking for Modern Flash Drives.

Summary: UPDATE: Well, to be honest, I didn't want to give up on my idea of using this as a better, bigger, and cheaper alternative to the high end video/picture digital frames. -1 star goes to the horrid Samsung customer service. Inept at their best. After telling me all of the things below, I just didn't believe them. I had a hunch that the problem with the USB lay in the formatting.
Summary: Terrible picture quality. I've fiddled with this TV since I purchased it and the picture is still terrible. I'm not sure if I got a lemon, but the small 22-inch size isn't worth the money. Would not recommend.
Samsung Tale of Woe on Product and Service Quality
Thomas Callahan, Amazon
1 August 2014
Summary: Bought two of these from Amazon in March. Four months later--no picture or sound on one of them. Had to call Samsung service (45 minutes, multiple menu levels). Truly uninformed call center guy gave me a ticket number and told me that someone would contact me in a couple of days to come to my house to fix the television under warranty. Five days later, when I hadn't heard a peep, I tried to track the repair on Samsung's "Repair Self Track" feature on their website.
Summary: I paid more than $40.00 for a protection plan from Square Trade through Amazon. The TV went out on 7 June 2014, I purchased the thing through Amazon in October 2013. I tried to file a claim through Square Trade and got a smug reply to contact the manufacturer. Had I known I would get the run around on this I wouldn't have bought a Samsung piece of junk in the first place and I sure as hell wouldn't have paid for a plan through Square Trade.
Summary: Excellent TV, the display quality is immaculate, the speakers are actually really good for a TV as well. I wasn't happy with the way it was packaged though, not even amused. I didn't expect to see a TV box like you would in a store, with handle holes in the side that you could touch the TV through if you wanted to. The first one I ordered had a strange issue where the display wouldn't turn on just the light on the bottom.
Summary: I'll be boondocking for two months this summer, and I really needed 12V tolerant TV that didn't cost and arm and a leg. RV specific TVs can cost more than they are worth, and don't have a lot of the nicer features. After doing a lot of research, I found that this TV uses a 14V converter, which is near the charging voltages for automotive battery systems.
The Included Stand Comes with Three Mounting Screws. DO NOT THROW THESE OUT
James Ahn, Amazon
26 April 2014
Summary: I almost made this mistake, just putting the TV on its square stand and boy was it wobbly. I went on eBay to look for replacement stands, then saw the factory stand on sale with a picture - wrapped in the shrink wrap was a small plastic bag with three screws in it. WHAT? So I ran back outside, grabbed the box, and sure enough in the wrapping I tossed there was that little bag! Took the three screws out, screwed the stand into the TV base, and bingo goodbye wobble!
