DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT EVER!! HORRIBLE!
12 July 2012
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!
Pros: This TV is good for 2D viewing. Color quality and sound are good. Visual appearance is better than other brand-TVs in market.
Cons: 3D glasses flickers and causes headache. I would go for passive 3D TVs where, they uses cheap theater glasses. Their warranty service is horrible. 3D glasses failed in 3 months,and warranty caused me nightmare.
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: 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: 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.
Pros: Almost edge less design, price and bundle makes it seem almost too good to be true.
Cons: Led bulb dramatically exposed on top right corner a little less on left sides but visible. Hard to get clear fast action motion, even with supposed 240hz. 3d seems great as my first experience but anything other than blu-ray leaves you nauseous.
