Summary: *****W A R N I N G***** Do not buy SAMSUNG Televisions!!! After the one year warranty period SAMSUNG Television screens tend to show burn-in and ghosting with horizontal lines, along with very heavy distortion of picture on right side of screen. This problem is systemic in all their LCD's and LED's. Consumer's have complained all over the internet.
Summary: SAMSUNG browser often crash, not able to handle any movie streaming. crash every 10 minutes. Samsung says NO solution for this. please look at the link below. http://support-us.samsung.com/cyber/popup/iframe/pop_troubleshooting_fr.jsp?idx=406298&modelname=UN55ES6100F&modelcode=UN55ES6100FXZA So you cannot use for playing movie online. YOU TUBE also crash often.
Smart TV? Not this device. Buy a dumb TV and get a RoKu.

Summary: The user interface on this shows no imagination and is totally eclipsed by my RoKu box. When spending this much on a Smart TV, I would actually like it to be smart. This device fails that test.
Summary: I purchased the UN55ES800 after having to throw away the 46" style because of weird vertical lines. I upgraded to this one and it's only been 14 months since I purchased it and again I'm getting the same weird vertical blue lines. And to top it off it turns on and off for several minutes before it stays on. However, when I switch channels the same thing happens. I contacted customer service and they told me the warranty is only good for 12 months.
Summary: Picture only improved to the quality i was expecting when i upgraded and paid $300 for the evolution kit 2013. Go ahead say "I want to watch" blah... it doesnt work unless you pay the additional 300 for evolution kit. Even with the evolution kit it does not work as advertised. I expected to say "i want to watch danger mouse" and have it pull up danger mouse and get the option to choose netflix. It does only clicking on the netflix option doesn't bring you to netflix.
Summary: Great TV picture and easy set up. Looks sleek & beautiful with the chrome finish and stand. Voice control works once you get used to the commands. Motion control only works if there's enough light in the room. My best TV purchase so far!
BUYER BEWARE!!! FAILURE OF BOTH MY 7000 AND 8000 SERIES SAMSUNG SMART TVS
28 September 2013
Summary: I will NEVER buy another SAMSUNG TV again. I should have learned my lesson when my recently purchased 7000 series Samsung 3D TV failed. I thought it was an isolated incident and couldn't possibly happen again so I decided to take the plunge and buy another Samsung. This time a top-of-the-line 8000 series with all the bells and whistles. Within 3 weeks of owning, a blue line ran vertically down the right side of my screen.
