  • Summary: Saw on the internet in the description that this had the youtube app. My son loves watching youtube so that's why I bought this one. I get it home and try to find the youtube app but it's not there. Come to find out that it has been removed for this model by Samsung. I was told told that I would need to have one with an older manufacturing date to get youtube for this model. So I returned it for a model with the app.

Nothing of Value

Anonymous, Adorama

  • Excerpt: SMART has a very big star mark in this model. Youtube is not compatible. Even playing from browser stops the videos. Pairing is not possible. Making fools of people with SMART and built-in WiFi.
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, Not high def, Poor quality

Unreliable Performance

SavvyCat, Adorama
18 April 2014
  • Excerpt: Since I bought my Samsung TV, back in November, there have been consistent issues. First, there were brightness issues. The tv would suddenly get darker and then brighter again. This happened countless times. I adjusted the brightness settings about three weeks ago, and have not experienced that particular issue since. Secondly, I often have trouble either starting the Netflix Ap or getting episodes to play once logged in.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, Lightweight
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, Poor Performance

Not very happy with the performance, but video quality is great

mib2009, Adorama
18 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I was so excited about all the capabilities offered, but quickly have become disappointed and even considering returning this TV, the performance is very poor, it feels like a slow PC from the 90's, continuous crashing, freezing, updating, etc. I have contacted the service department and so far they have not been able to do anything. Sometimes I have no other choice than turn it off like forcing a PC to restart after freezing.
  • Pros: Bright display, Built-In Speakers, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Realistic color
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations

  • Summary: The picture quality is not great but it's tolerable. The sound is not so great. My old 32 inch Samsung back from 2007 had better sound and pictures. We got a sound bar to give the volume more umph. I like that this is a smart tv but I hate the remote. It's not qwerty so it makes it extremely annoying to type in what you want. If you think about getting this tv for the web browser then forget it. The remote is awful to type and browse with.

"Returned to store"

bustertoad, CNET
12 January 2014
  • Pros: Outstanding picture. Found and set up OTA channels with no problem. OTA operation was easy and HD picture quality was better than satellite system.
  • Cons: Hulu streaming videos would not play without constant pauses for reloading. Netflix would not load at all and the app could not be reinstalled because of the editing restrictions. Increased my internet service to 33mbps and still had the problem.

Not a SMART as Name

Ujjwal, Adorama
19 December 2013
  • Excerpt: As a Samsung product there is absolutely no doubt on quality of picture, sound, slimness etc. But as a SMART TV it is not worthy because 1. The browser is very very poor you can not play anything from internet more than 10 min. The browser crashes as the streaming is not possible. 2. I suggest better go for any Samsung LED TV and use wide range of streaming devices like chromecast, roku, apple tv etc it will give you better control on apps and browser.
  • Pros: Bright display, Built-In Speakers, Durable, Lightweight, Realistic color
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, not worth as a smart tv
