Summary: Considering this is supposed to be a "flagship" model, I'm extremely disappointed. If you are looking for help with this matter, i've found out the issue is called, "floating blacks" or "brightness pops". The buzzing is also a WELL known issue. However, Samsung customer support will completely deny that either of these issues exist. The TV isn't ALL bad so I'll list the things I DO like about it.
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!
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: Nice TV, if you don't have a problem with it. Mine has a defective display. Dealing with Samsung customer service and tech support has been extremely frustrating. I wasted many hours on the phone, on-line chat, and email.
Summary: After one week of trying to watch this TV I had to return the product. Amazon was great about setting up the return. Pros: very good looking TV. When the picture was clear, it was VERY clear. There were times that I was watching a show and I would actually pause the TV in amazement about how nice and clear the picture looked. I also thought the 2d to 3d conversion was pretty cool. Things don't jump off the screen, but it does provide nice depth and clarity to things.
Summary: UPDATE: Amazon has contacted me and is shipping a new tv out ASAP and I will hand off the old tv to the shipper. So score a HUGE WIN for Amazon, but still a huge negative for Samsung for shipping a tv that is broken AND missing parts. I will update further once we get the new tv installed. ----------------------------------------------------- I have purchased TWO of these tvs. The first one was for myself and it arrived promptly and worked without problem.
Summary: I bought this TV just over a year ago, in this time it has reformatted my connected hard drive numerous times, well I'm guessing, it must be dozens of times. It often fails to record programs or just misses the end of recordings. It is forever flashing up messages reminding you of something or other, say you set it to record a program, it will flash messages on screen five or so minutes before the program is on.
Excerpt: Вцелом неплохой аппарат. Но он явно не дотягивает до конкурентов Sony 55HX920 и Panasonic 50GT30/VT30 по качеству сборки и картинки (а ведь через месяц выйдет ещё и новые тв от Philips, того-же класса). Неудачная модель, вернул в магазин на следующий день.
Pros: Дизайн, толщина корпуса.
Cons: Слишком хлипкий корпус (гнётся под совим весом), некачественная матрица (заметно меняются цвета при среднем угле обзора), заявленные 800Герц - ХУЖЕ ЧЕМ 400Герц у моделей прошлого года от Sony и Philips, цена на нашем рынке не адекватна. Отвратительный пульт. Звук как всегда для галочки.
