Summary: Great tv for 6 months until it broke now 5 months later still not fixed. Samsung has the absolute worst customer service out of any company I've ever dealt with. Do yourself a favor and look at other brands.
Summary: I would not recommend buying this TV or buying it from Amazon because of poor warranty service backup. I bought the TV from Amazon on March 18 -2013 - It totally died and would not turn on 2 1/2 weeks ago. A call to Amazon said - Sorry you need to deal with Samsung for warranty problems. That was 2 1/2 weeks ago and I am still waiting for the Samsun service man to show up. This is the second one that Samsun said they were sending.
Summary: I have a 67" Samsung DLP TV that cost $2500 from Costco. After warranty expired ( a very short 1 year) the TV developed white spots due to the failure of the DLP chip. Despite an overwhelming number of customers with the same problem Samsung refuses to address the problem even though they did a secret recall on the 61" version of this TV. Do an internet search on white dot problem.
Buyer Beware! This model HAS ITS ISSUES! MAKE SURE YOU BUY THAT $99 Extended WARRANTY!

Summary: Edit- 5/15 These TVs have an amazing picture. No doubt about that! But look at all the bad reviews on their last years "high end" model, and maybe you could see just how many issues others are having. When I see a product have as many 1 star reviews as their are, 5 star reviews, I take that as a "Red flag". the "reliability" on these TVs aren't that great. They really have one of the worst quality controls I've ever experienced.
Summary: Why do people insist on calling LCD TVs which are either side or backlit by LEDs as "LED TVs" when obviously they are not? When the 1st generation of LCD TVs used fluorescent tubes to illuminate the LCD display nobody called them "Fluorescent" TVs! I still know some foolish friends who thing that they own true LED televisions when clearly they are not. Surely technology sites should at least make that fact abundantly clear?
Excerpt: вместо самсунга категорически рекомендую посмотреть в сторону Lg, у которого есть пульт с курсором, это на порядок удобнее.
Cons: купили в качестве экрана смотреть фильмы, даже антенну не подключали. Фатальный недостаток — пульт. Это просто жесть какая-то. Им нельзя управлять с помощью движения пульта (как в wii или Lg) и в результате работа с телевизором превращается во что-то, что управляется кнопками: вверх, вниз, влево, вправо. Это везде: в браузере, в смарт хабе, в приложениях, в клавиатуре, т.е. даже фильм нельзя на середину промокать просто ткнув на середину. Чтобы ощутить этот ад, можете...
