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.

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.
