Ok for a big screen, but not great

  • Summary: Underwhelmed by picture quality. Blacks not so deep. I actually returned it for the UHD9000 curved. A bit of a price jump but much better picture.
  • Pros: Thin and sleek looking
  • Cons: Not overwhelmed by picture.

  • Summary: We had only had our TV for about 1 month when it just completely shut off and had to get the main board repaired and power plug.
  • Pros: Graphics, all the programs available
  • Cons: Shut off by itself

Great picture, but streaming is awful...

  • 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.

Watch this set before buying it. Check lower resolution images presentation.

  • 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.

Great picture but poor performance

Retailraptor, Amazon

  • 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.

Picture is nice but software stinks

Luciano Poiani, Amazon

  • 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.

Great picture..Buggy wifi and usb

CeKay, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had the TV for only 1 day. The picture is truly OUTSTANDING. But I am quite disappointed with the Wifi and USB support. Hence the 2 stars. I played around with the TV for an hour or so before connecting to the web. I was impressed. Once I tuned on Wifi all interaction became painfully slow. I got stuck in Netflix. I couldn't back out. I couldn't power off. I eventually pulled the plug. I decided I should try to upgrade to the latest firmware....

Great picture but where is multi-player game mode?

Tom R, Amazon
20 April 2014
  • Summary: I have had this for a little over a week. The picture is really amazing as is the 3D viewing. The 3D menus imply that there should be support for multi-player game mode (there are options for side by side and over/under layout which make each players' view go full screen and appear in either the left or right lens as described in all of the write ups I and videos I have seen that talk about LG's Dual Play (which requires special left/left and right/right glasses).

Terrific TV - But Not Perfect ***Update 1: Lowered to 3 Stars***

PkFloydLvr, Amazon
3 April 2013
  • Summary: I researched newer HDTVs for weeks before pulling the string on this purchase. Amazon/Pauls TV had the lowest price and offered free White Glove Delivery from southern CA to central OH. The TV arrived on the 7th day which was also the last day of the delivery window. (More on shipping later.) The TV has been in service for 24-hours, so my experience is limited.

Samsung Backward Step

leppa9, Amazon
18 March 2013
  • Summary: In 2011 I bought a Samsung UN65D8000 for my brother from Amazon; the first time buying a TV online. The purchase experience was great: decent price, awesome Amazon service, great delivery shippers (helpful & on-time). The TV was also great: flawless picture, easy wall mounting, and all the features he wanted it for. So this year when my +8year Sony 60WF655 got a fair share of dead pixels, I decided to try to repeat the magic.
