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 this newer TV. The reason for only 2 starsis this TV succumbed to the complaints already voiced by other reviewers,namely,it broke by 5/2014!
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. I find it extremely irratating to have spent this amount of money on a defective set. I will update the review after new panle has been installed.
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. I work full-time and when i get home i just want to watch my tv program and go to sleep.
