So the whole SMART thing is out of the window
3 January 2015
Summary: I've had high hopes for that TV, but the menus are extremely slow, you can barely use them somethings. So the whole SMART thing is out of the window ... On top of that, you can't even sync it with Mac Books ... I'm done with Samsung, 'cause I'm not that happy about their Note 4 either.
Summary: New TV out of the box only worked 15 minutes, then no display. Samsung service was quick, but brand new TV was still down for several days. Picture is good, but the smart functions don't work well. Trying to watch 3D from apps continually drops out of apps. Web browser is so slow that it's almost useless.
the problem with this TV is that the Software sucks. all major apps like Netflix

Summary: TV the hardware components are 5Stars. the problem with this TV is that the Software sucks. all major apps like Netflix, Hulu, doesnt work well. it will crash all the time. and sometimes i have to unplug the TV to fix the problem.
Summary: Suppose it's just bad luck but so far this is the worst TV I've purchased. First TV I got failed after 2 days, just completely turned off while I was watching something on amazon prime. I got a replacement TV after 2 months later there is a line of stuck pixels on the top running all the way across from left to right.
Summary: Although the picture is quite vibrant and bright and the 3D is fairly neat, I was very disappointed in the refresh rate. With this particular TV, there isn't any difference in the pixelation when watching football games; which is the only reason I bought a new TV, to upgrade from 120mHz to 240mHz. Also, I'm not fond of the reflection.
SOOOO Much potential, but trouble with Software / Firmware

Summary: UPDATE - So, after a few weeks of having this TV, unfortunately I'm having to return. I still really like the TV, it just keeps switching inputs randomly and / or the apps keep crashing, I honestly can't quite tell which one. But I'll be watching something on the Netflix app and it will just switch to my Chromecast or I'll be watching something on Hulu and it will just stall or jump to my Apple TV.
Summary: The quality of the picture is excellent, HOWEVER, streaming Netflix is awful--it's a nightmare of pauses, buffering, and extremely poor image quality, all in a room with at least 25 mbps. I ended up having to stream Netflix through my old Panasonic DMP-BD87 Ultra-Fast Booting Blu-ray Disc Player Blu-Ray player, and the quality of the stream is perfect. So, I'm disappointed in the streaming quality of a TV with supposedly advanced capabilities.

Summary: The good: It has a very sharp image. I am using Directv and I get 1080i at 60 frames per second. It is capable of 1080p, but my signal is not providing it. It has many options. It took me a couple of days to go through them. Setting up a wireless connection was very easy as it looks for the signals available and it found my network. I just accepted it and input the access codes for the network and it was done. It works really well.
Summary: The picture on this Samsung UN65H7150 tv is outstanding and blows away the competition hands down. No lines or cloudy/dark areas and lighting is smooth across the entire screen, although I do see the occasional flashes of green vertical stripes that others have talked about being a firmware problem. I have not done any firmware upgrades yet, which might fix that.
Summary: My previous TV was a Samsung 52-inch LCD that I really enjoyed. That experience was one of the main reasons I went with Samsung again. Unfortunately, my experience with this 65-inch LED unit hasn't been as favorable. First off, the picture itself, when things are working correctly, is amazingly good. When things are working correctly. My first unit had flash-lighting in all four corners, and it was really bad in the bottom corners.
