Summary: Really impressed with this tv. Unfortunately kept turning itself off/rebooting whenever remote used. After many hours of technical support and engineers visit (changed motherboard) no resolution and returned to Amazon. Excited to receive replacement but very disappointed to find it had exactly the same issue. Amazon customer service up to usual high standard. Samsung technical support friendly. Samsung customer service unhelpful and condescending.
Summary: Pleased with the picture quality and features, very easy setup. Picture benefits from some adjustments (see picture-perfect on AVForums). Menus are all easy to work through. I found the sound perfectly acceptable, having read so many concerns over thin TV's my expectations were that we'd need a sound bar, but after 1 month it doesn't seem necessary.
Summary: The picture quality is fantastic, as is the 3D capabilities using the active glasses. TV sound is very spatial and clear after a bit of tinkering. Onboard wifi is a doddle to set up, then download apps until your heart's content! Didn't take long to attach 2 stands to the TV - you can put small black counters which go under the stand (supplied), so you can move the TV easier on a table etc, this adds about 1cm in height.
Very impressed with the Samsung 40-inch Smart LED TV

Summary: The setup procedure is fairly straight forward. After you switch it on, you are led through a series of setup pages. Of course you need to get your WiFi router info to hand if connecting wirelessly to the internet .. and after that you can continue to using the tv, but I opted to download the first day software update that took 30 mins and a reboot before I watched my first Freeview HD channel. Two remotes are supplied ..
Summary: I live in a building with lift, and the delivery driver was going to leave my tv in our reception. asked me to carry it to my own apartment. but i refused of course, then he carried it to my door. delivery aside, the quality of the TV is fantastic. and this is the best value for the price!
