Smart Hub isn't....
24 November 2015
Summary: I don't think I'll ever buy a Samsung TV again. The picture is great, but Smart Hub isn't very smart! There are many reports of this out in the forums. Smart Hub says its updating everytime I use the TV's Smart Hub. As a for instance: I turn the Smart Hub on and it wants to update.

Summary: Picture is good, web browser very sluggish, Soft Ap (tv transmits wifi) poor I pick up two lines signal out of three 12ft away from tv. Skype works but I only get one line signal out of five with 8 meg Internet service.
Careful with this Samsung TV. All the negative review Will happen

Summary: Yeah like most tragic stories here. Yesterday my tv was updating and installing a new version of the Smart Hub. The update has been causing my tv to turn on and off every 3 seconds and even though it's software not hardware and the tv is 2yrs old, bought it May 2013.
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: This set was awesome for two weeks, then it started cycling off and on ,test patterns and funky colors. Samsung was pleased to tell me it's under warranty(duh). I am now waiting for a new replacement panel no idea how long.

Summary: this is my second samsung tv,purchaesed 9/2012. the picture is big and beautifu,but i admit it has features i still haven't bothered to use,including the hand gestures. My 3D glasses from my older samsung 3D TV (Samsung UN46C8000 46-Inch 1080p 3D 240 Hz LED HDTV purchased in 2010) won't work with...
Excerpt: I have just done the installation & I am not sure what has happened to this TV? The image suddenly converts in to Vertical stripes (As in image) & then TV shuts down automatically & then starts again? Serious concern for a TV for which I have paid a premium price?????
Summary: It seems to me that additional features is one of the key points. But the additional feature has nothing that stands out. For instance, skype is a great feature but when will you ever use it at home? The jobs can all be done through connection to pc or smartphone.
