AVOID! Dies after 23 months, poor quality control

Summary: We have had this 'top of the line' LED 1080p 3D tv for 23 months. One year and 11 months. It is dead now. It just stopped working. It turns on, and shows a picture and shuts down in 5 seconds. I have followed the troubleshooting procedures to where it says contact a authorized service repair center.
Summary: Bought this 3 years ago for a huge discount, one of the best purchases in a while. Pro: Good for gaming once you turn on "gaming mode" which gets rid of the post processing frames. Great for movies/shows, post processing work is amazing. Small bezel is VERY catching.
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.
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.
Summary: So far I like this TV. The picture from a high definition source is excellent. The picture from a standard definition source is not quite as good as the CRT set it replaced. I have not tried 3D or netflix, but it has a free movie app (about 150 titles) that works well.
Summary: This television is beautiful, both on and off. For about two years I have heard person after person complain about the dreaded "soap opera" effect from tv's with 120 or 240 fps. Having had a Sony XSRD 60 inch for the past four years, I was in no rush to get another tv, but I finally decided to go...
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.
Summary: I was a little worried about purchacing this tv after reading a few negative reviews. The tv was a gift for my husband, who is a tv buff, and I wanted to get the best one possible on my budget. Long story short... He loves it!! It was everything he wanted and more.
