Summary: This TV was fine ... If you're not watching a movie that has dark scenes you won't notice anything. But the backlight (as with many LEDs) is inconsistent. If you're looking at a black but lit screen you'll see cloud like inconsistencies in the lighting which is really distracting. That annoyance can be mitigated by decreasing the brightness and this issue is common with most LED TVs. ALSO!
Summary: this is a beautiful and thin tv. the picture looks great most of the time. the edge led system ruins this tv for me though. every so often i notice that there is light coming from the corners. this really irritates me. also, on darker scenes from movies/tv, the backlight sometimes turns way down. when the scene changes the backlight turns back up. there is no consistency when it comes to dark scenes with this model.
tv is great but still yet to find out what went wrong

Summary: Bought the tv and it worked perfectly fine for a few days. After about 3 days the picture went completely out and all that was working was the sound. Awaiting for someone from Samsung to come to my home to correct the problem. Maybe this is an individual problem or maybe this occurs often with these types of tvs. This is my first purchase of this type of tv. Other then that, received the product at a great price but it took a little long to finally arrive.
Summary: I purchased this tv after several months of research since I wanted this to be a quality tv. I understand the merits of plasma and they do have their uses for particular situations, but for me, LED LCD was the way to go. You might save a little money by going to the 6000 series model since all it lacks I believe are the internet widgets and so far, I haven't made too much use of them. If they come with a Netflix widget, then it will be well worth it!
