Still a Work in Progress
30 December 2010
Summary: I'm sure most people have read alot of great reviews about the quality of the picture, and the innovation of Samsung TV's, but I was really surprised and upset when I found out that the software of my new TV was incompatible with the Windows 7 Operating system of my PC. The problem arose when I was streaming music from my PC via a wired internet connection. It worked fine at first, but suddenly the TV started cutting off all the songs I was playing.
Summary: I am still somewhat skeptical about the future of 3D TV but decided to purchase it for the future potential. The definition of this TV for watching Blu-ray or HD content is truly superb. I did watch a Direct TV video program on the solar system in 3D and it certainly was entertaining but I am still doubtful about the future of 3D due to the need to wear those dorky glasses and then to have enough glasses available for other viewers.
Summary: First I must say that as always, Amazon delivered on time and with great quality. Second, this screen rocks. Colors, quality, definition, design, etc. I must say though that the interface for internet applications is poor. Skype is not working at all. If you want a tv for its internet capabilities, don't buy this tem. If you want quality, as good or better than sony's, and at a cheaper price... go for it.
Summary: This TV is uncannily clear; I have not moved into the Blueray world - but still, DVD's I'm playing off of my Xbox make me feel like I'm looking through a window - it's almost unnerving how clear the picture is. Over all, if a picture can be too good, this TV comes close to accomplishing that. The reason that I didn't give the TV a 5 Star rating is video game rendering issues.
Summary: I gave this four stars because This TV has a nice picture and some of the features work. If I gave it a rating on internet connectivity I would give it only one star though. (note: see also the update I wrote at the end of this review) I'm having a problem with (and apparently I am not alone) the "Internet@TV" feature. One of the main features I purchased this model for is the internet application features.
Summary: When I received my 3D tv the 3d part didn't work. The 3D image on the tv worked fine, the 3D emitter located on the lower left corner of the tv never worked. I tested the emitter with my videocamera viewfinder results no flash of the emitter in my videocamera viewfinder. Called Samsung support and received a call from Electronic Service Labs which is located about a mile from where I live.
Summary: I just got the TV a couple of weeks a go and decided to post my first review ever on Amazon, as well this is the largest purchase I've made. This is my first LCD purchase in a while, I've had a Pioneer Plasma that I've loved forever, but just moved to Boston and left the Pioneer back home. The picture is extremly clear, almost too clear, sometimes I feel like the TV shows are live action TV, which takes a bit to get used too. The features seem great.
Summary: I love this tv, from the styling to the performance. I was a bit disappointed that you only received 1 pair of glasses with the tv (via redemption), especially at this price. The colours look crisp and tight and the 3D looks amazing, I can't review the sound from the TV as I have it hooked up to my av receiver. Overall a bit pricy, like all new technology, but worth it for the 3D wow factor.
Pros: The design is just gorgeous on this tv. The 3D from Sky and Blu-Ray 3D are brilliant. Â£200 Cashback
Cons: The price. The 2D to 3D seems to be a bit of a gimmick. Only getting 1 pair of glasses with the TV
