Summary: Fine picture quality, though the pixel shimmer and motion blur could be better, but I blame that mostly on the panel I got. Apparently no 50" uses one of the good panels. Anyway, this is a good television for the price. The smart functions are easy to use, there are plenty of setup and configuration options, and the image processing features seem interesting.
Summary: So I purchased this item last month, at first it looks good, 50" and fits my living room perfectly. Great picture and the 3D feature is amazing, I liked it a lot. But only after a month of using it, this morning I found that there are two bright stripes, one white and horizontal, the other green and vertical, right in the middle of my screen when I turned the tv on. I didn't hit it with anything, it just happened out of the blue.
Summary: This is my first Samsung TV and it is wonderful picture quality, functionality are amazing. Smart functionality is a plus, Facebook, Netflix, Pandora... you name it is right there. One thing you need to pay attention do not install facing a window you will have issue with glare that's the only con I have. It is great.
Summary: The picture on the Samsung is the best in this price range in my experience. Set up was easy, Amazon included 30 days of tech help but it was not needed. I purchased this with the Samsung HW-F450 Soundbar. The only thing that keeps this from a five star rating is the poor synchronization between the remote controls and components. I purposely bought all Samsung components to avoid these issues. Overall, just a minor annoyance.
Summary: TV screen was black when I turned it on today. Samsung support was nice but couldn't help me. Called Crutchfield for a replacement. The TV is about 6 weeks old and it is already no good. Crutchfield is sending another TV next week, I hope this one works.
Pros: Even though this was our first smart TV, we figured it out fairly easy. The TV only lasted few weeks but we will try another one and see how it works.
Cons: I thought the TV would last several years for how much it cost. I hope the replacement works out better, but at this point I'm not too impressed with Samsung. I've had a 35" Sony so many years and it wouldn't die, I'm glad I still have it, so I will have a back up for my new Samsung. It lasted less than 6 weeks and the screen went black. I thought Samsung was a good brand, not so sure now.
Summary: Absolutely love this tv. Haven't had any of the issues that prior reviewers said they had. Works great for my games and movies. No framerate issues here. 3d affects are also a cool kicker. Did a lot of research before buying and have to say I'm glad i pulled the trigger on this buy.
Summary: Love this TV!!! Read all the Amazon reviews numerous times, before making this purchase. Amazon is the best place for honest reviews....Was hesitant about purchasing something this expensive and fragile with Amazon, but rest assured the packaging and delivery were top notch. No nightmares here!!!! The TV is as good as people say and better. I am still in awe of the picture quality!!!! The depth and color is great!
