Summary: When I purchased this TV last year it took me at least a month to get used to look, feel and motion of the picture. This is of course after I used the recommended settings from AVS for picture quality. One year later I am still impressed with how sharp and solid this tv has performed. This is my second Samsung tv and my first 3d tv with Smart TV apps.
Pros: Sharp picture quality, great appsa nd features with Samsung Smart TV service
Cons: Blacks are not the best out there, learning curve
Summary: This is most awful tv we've ever owned! From day one the remote didn't work. Samsung made us jump through hoop after hoop and pushed back on replacing the remote even though it was brand new and $2000. Finally they promised to send a new one. It never arrived. Incredibly they made us give our credit card number and have us go to the post office to send the old one back before they would agree to send a new one. We did, and THEY STILL NEVER SENT A REPLACEMENT REMOTE!
Amazing. Great investment, hope it holds me over until the OLED tvs are released.

Summary: I am thoroughly impressed with the product. Outside of the fact that there is no amazon prime for this device, it works well. I had trouble in the beginning and had to call amazon customer service for a new one. There was a dead pixel spot on my screen that didn't show any picture. I called amazon about the flaw and they gave me a new tv in exchange for the old one. Amazon's customer service is amazing and I have no real complaints about the tv or amazon.
Summary: This is the first review I'm writing on Amazon, but thought I should share my experiences with this television. I originally decided on this this TV because my previous TV was a Samsung and I loved it. I thought I would treat myself to an upgrade so I picked this model as it was the top of the line Samsung model and it was well reviewed on Amazon.
Summary: First the service through Amazon was perfect!! The TV arrived early and not damaged. Now for the TV, this set has all the bells and whistles you can imagine and cosmetically a work of art. I tried many different setting for the picture from this site and others, but was never satisfied. I returned this set and bought the Samsung plasma. It has a more realistic picture "for me", all features of this set, and was 1000.00 cheaper.
Summary: I bought this TV last summer and figured now would be a good time to provide some input. I am a techie, but i use the default settings on the TV and they have been fine for me. But after using this TV for 6 months it was time to share my experiences. Picture Quality This is strongest when I am watching live sports and video gaming. I don't have cable and use the free TV around me. Its actually clearer than HD from cable companies.
Summary: This is a great TV and for the price, you can't get better. I went to best buy to see if they would price match this TV and they said they don't price match with amazon, so I pointed out that it was being sold by Paul's TV, so they checked it out on-line. Turns out Paul's TV sells for a different price on amazon than their sale price on-line at their web-site so I ordered from Amazon. The TV arrived within 2 days. Can't ask for better delivery service than that.
Summary: When my Darling Bride's eyesight began to weaken, she complained that our 36" tube TV wasn't getting it for her eyes anymore. So we started saving up and researching new HDTVs. Amazon's White Glove Delivery was included in the price and a pleasant surprise! The deliverers brought the TV into the house, unboxed it, assembled it, plugged it in, turned it on and tested it out. They even offered to haul away the box and packing materials!
Summary: Bought the TV based off of Samsung's reputation for great LED LCD TVs. It is the NFL playoffs and we had over a dozen people coming over to watch the big football game at the house. I hooked up this TV and mounted it on the wall. Turned on the TV and immediately noticed a Yellow vertical line running through the set and a green horizontal line running through the screen.
Summary: This is a beautiful TV, the super thin bezel design is the best on the market and has a definite luxurious look and feel. The body is remarkably light and easy to set up. After spending a few hours tweaking, I am very happy with the picture quality. That said, this is a TV that does require a little fine tuning to optimize performance (but most if not all TVs are like this nowadays).
