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

Anthony Tyler, Amazon
4 October 2014
  • 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). While the picture was very good, the banding became quite an annoyance on such a large screen. The problem is that most people don't even notice there's something structurally wrong with their television and Samsung counts on this.

I wanted to love this TV because my cell phones

The A team, Amazon
19 September 2014
  • Summary: I wanted to love this TV because my cell phones, blue ray and tablets are all Samsung devices , but I ended up returning it. I would have rated the picture exceptional except for a defect that I could not get past for the price point, which caused me to return it. At the very top of the panel when an off white or non black scene is displayed the TV shows a horizontal distorted brighter line about an 1/8 to 1/4 inch going across the whole top part of the panel.

DOA and lousy customer support

James W. Sherry "Jimbo", Amazon
12 June 2014
  • 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.......God forbid you would waste their time sending a tech out to fix what is now your problem. Then after making the appt. the service tech was a no call/ show. Samsung of course is no help.

This TV is not a SMART TV

Hexion Chem, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • 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. But I could have gotten that much cheaper without going for a smart TV.

Wonderful picture . . . if it actually turns on and the the source is awesome

danny_boy "Boom", Amazon
22 May 2014
  • Summary: I wanted to love this TV, really, but I just couldn't get over the problems so it had to make its way back to Amazon. First, I don't think I'll ever buy anything again without buying it from Amazon. The CEVA delivery service was fantastic, and better yet, the return process was super easy and the refund came about 3 days after the item was picked up. I saved all the packing materials (I'm not really sure why, but it turned out to be a good move). Now to the TV . . . .

Smart TV tha's Stupid

Jeffrey Mead Burandt, Amazon
9 May 2014
  • Summary: A smart TV that's stupid. User unfriendly and a manual that's not. No plug & play and no drop down tabs to connect speakers. Moreover Samsung tech support is clueless as they are useless. I'm taking this $2500 TV back. Very disappointed.

Buy for 3D content only

Joshua D., Amazon
29 April 2014
  • 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 on). One of the worst things is that the iOS Smart View app doesn't work. This is one of the main reasons I bought the TV.

Unacceptable issues for a high-end TV

J.L., Amazon
16 October 2012
  • 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 strips of light and dark backlighting, particularly visible in panning scenes across a uniform backdrop).

Great tv, BAD BAD software.

E. Sessum, Amazon
8 September 2012
  • Summary: Id like to say first I have a UN40F6300 in the other room, smart setup is basically the same and I love it. Its the actual firmware on the tv thats screwy. Randomly I will get a screensaver that will make me have to change the volume on my directv remote or hit a button on the tv remote. It has no real reason why, auto protection is disabled and samsung has told me 2 different things. One is that the tv will put up the screensaver if it thinks the picture will burn.
