Excerpt: The sound on Amazon app and Netflix, constantly drop out, really frustrating. It basically ruins the cinema experience. I called Samsung, and they say the same thing over again. Its my internet speed, but its not. I have almost the highest speed, so I know its not that. I use apple tv all the time with no problems, picture and sound perfect with the same tv. I believe Samsung refuses to address the the main issue, the built in wifi in the TV.
Summary: We have had this Samsung 3DTV for 5 weeks and consider it minimal compatable with direct TV. We must use the original direct TV remote and try to interface with the smart TVcontrols. It sort of works, however to get the sound to function we have to aim the controll way off axis and channel information is at random. The initial set up process to function is another nightmare compared to our other larger LG. This smart TV is not for seniors who want a simple set up.
Summary: Id like to say first I have a UN40F6300 in the other room, smart setup is basically the same and I love it. Its the actual firmware on the tv thats screwy. Randomly I will get a screensaver that will make me have to change the volume on my directv remote or hit a button on the tv remote. It has no real reason why, auto protection is disabled and samsung has told me 2 different things. One is that the tv will put up the screensaver if it thinks the picture will burn.
Summary: Mine has a disgusting white gradient across the entire bottom going up about 10 inches. It's completely ruined watching anything. Fresh out of the box and it is doing that...at least it isn't sneaking into my life after owning the TV for a few months. haha. Let's see what happens with the replacement and such. *sigh* Bonus star just cause I may be the unlucky one and I don't wanna be a jerk and say one star just cause of that.
I will never buy a Samsung Smart Hub product again.
Just another geek, Amazon

Summary: I don't watch any live TV, so I bought this specifically for the ability to use Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, & Pandora. When everything works, I love this TV. The picture is great. The software is a little slow, but adequate. The reason this TV only gets 2 stars is because "when everything works" is becoming infrequent. All of the apps rely on connectivity to Samsung's servers, and Samsung's servers have been struggling more and more lately.
Summary: The product description stated the item may have scratches and marks on the outer frame. Did not have those but it pops on and off about one to three times before staying on. I expected the TV to operate flawlessly. Very disappointed.
Voice Recognition and Motion Control DOES NOT WORK!
7 November 2012
Summary: I had high expectations from this product, as it is the top of the line. It is very expensive and the price tag is not justified by the quality. Their breakthrough ideas of Motion Control and Voice Recognition do not work at all. When you try to use it, it says that it is either too noisy or too dark, when in reality, it is not. There are quite a few other options on the market, with same quality but much lower price.
Summary: Lo slogan che accompagna questo TV è assolutamente indovinato "il futuro, adesso", ma anche troppo. BlueRay e Videogiochi in FullHD si vedono effettivamente benissimo, sono una gioia per gli occhi, e le smart apps sono simpatiche, ma la visione dei "normali" canali TV rimane di qualità molto bassa. Dispongo di un buon impianto antenna digitale terrestre ed il segnale è bello potente, ma la resa a schermo è veramente scadente.
Excerpt: Пытался обратиться в городской сервис Самсунгов : там сказали что мастера можно вызвать по ГАРАНТИИ ТОЛЬКО позвонив на горячую линию Самсунга.
Pros: При просмотре ТВ каналов в качестве HD чувствуешь его превосходство
Cons: Через месяц появились засветы по краям экрана. Особенно раздражает засвет в нижней серединной части экрана, там где шильдик Самсунг. Данный засвет выглядит как буква V . Засветы видны когда темные сцены и даже когда полусумрак.
