Summary: Superb tv, though picture settings as delivered needed tweaking. 3D gasses rather fiddly to operate and non folding earpieces are easily dislodged. It would have been nice to have e-manual supplied on a dvd.
Summary: I had been searching for a 40 - 50 inch new TV to replace my existing "old" set bought during the early stages of Smart Television. It had a rather clunky BBC iPlayer and the manufacturers never implemented the ITV player. I also wanted a set with 3D capability. Sadly, owners of 3D sets have largely been betrayed by the BBC as our National broadcaster no longer offers this service. However some Movies are still made in 3D and there are quite a few films on line.
Summary: I am 100% happy with this purchase. No lip synch problems. Picture quality is excellent on SD and even better on HD. Sound is excellent too. I think I won't need to add a sound bar after all. The TV exceeds my expectations. I couldn't be more pleased. I bought a TTAP TV stand for this and the setting up of the TV was faster than building the stand, although that too was straightforward.
Summary: Fantastic picture and a very simple TV to use........ but terrible problem with lip sync which is still not resolved despite John Lewis sending an engineer out to fix the TV as well as contacting the Samsung support staff 9 times (who all gave conflicting advice!). Even after installing the latest firmware update which was meant to resolve the problem I am still facing problems. Sadly I will be returning the TV and looking for a replacement.
Summary: This is my first HD/smart/3D tv and I am really happy about it. I had a problem with the first one delivered to me, but Amazon has been amazing and they guided me through all the return/refund process. The active 3D is great as well as the smarthub. Bad thing about the Smart software are the privacy Terms and Conditions, not user friendly at all, I recommend to do not accept them as well as the remote access to your tv
Summary: Bought from Nottingham John Lewis store. Assured no longer a lip-sync problem with the big Samsung TVs. Delivered 4th October 2014. Immediately noticed an awful lip-sync delay of 1/2 second (500ms) or more. Menu/Sound/Additional Settings let me remove a 1/4 second (250ms) of this delay, but still not acceptable.
Summary: Most of the product technical specifications displayed on the John Lewis website were incorrect up to and including 14th October 2014, so I would suggest if you relied on this information, you check again! John Lewis took over 5 weeks to correct the information after being informed on numerous occasions. This is a poor show John Lewis!
