It's a crap shoot. Know that when buying ANY LED TV.

Summary: Purchased the 65" version of this series. The first TV (uh oh, first?) had the dreaded vertical banding that, apparently, is common and should be accepted by every single consumer buying an LED TV (no matter what the price).
Summary: I satisfied with this item in principle but I have disappointed point that's why this tv can not service koren language when I want to set parameter of tv please give me how to change language
Summary: First TV arrived DOA. Samsung doesn't do returns for damaged units so you jump through hoops during multiple inquiry calls including repetitive gymnastics during each call- Did you check this, push that, serial number, etc, etc, etc......
Summary: To make a TV a SMART TV, all the apps need to work. All the apps on the TV will either close out or don’t even open. I have to still watch Netflix and Amazon through my PS3 because the TV won’t let me watch it on their apps. The quality of the TV is nice and clear and the 3D looks great.

Summary: This is what I was worried about. I didn't really need a 3D TV, but all of the new ones seem to come with it as a function. The 3D picture looks better than the 2D picture, which is either grainy (auto motion plus off) or clear but looks like a soap opera or filmed with a camcorder (auto motion plus...
Summary: I have had this TV for over a year now and have been relatively happy with the picture. It is really stunning when hard wire connected to cable. The problem I have with the unit is that it is definitely not easy to use for the advertized features of a "smart TV.
Summary: We expected to use this for some video conferencing in our office. Not a good idea. The stock browser is very limited and while it might access many web sites, we did not have the functionality of the sites.
Summary: I've had two 65" ES8000s, and both of them demonstrated the same problems. While color, brightness and contrast are very good, Samsung has a defective backlight design. Both of my sets demonstrated flashlighting/clouding (a splotchy looking screen on black or dark scenes) and banding (alternating...
