Summary: Bought it cheap at Amazon. Then had it at house in couple days. Set up was a breeze. I had checked all the reviews before I bought it. Normally I don't readjust setting on a TV I just start watching. This time, with the help of some education via research, I did adjust television. Over course of a few days I used both CNETs review adjustments and the ones offered by someone in the Amazon reviews of this television. I settled on the Amazon reviewer settings.
Summary: I have had this tv only a few days but I LOVE it. So easy to set up. Wonderful picture. Great sound. I read hundreds of reviews on Amazon and Consumer Reports and many other online reviews, along with asking friends, and finally decided on this one and I'm so glad I did. It's lightweight and easy to adjust the color, tint, etc. The instructions are very clear. Amazon has 30-day support so your questions can be addressed, if you have any.
Summary: Better picture than expected. As my first Samsung HDTV, I'm very pleased with the picture quality. Was a die hard fan of Panasonic TV's in the past. Will be purchasing Samsung HDTV in the future.
Summary: I ordered this model for my 90 yr. mom, because it could be a "not smart" TV. After reviewing all the smart TV's I could stomach, I finally realized that the smart TV's are designed by nerds who want to make all the decisions for you. I personally do not like my devices telling me what I like to do. I also discovered the nerds limit your ability to scroll to different channels from the 5 choices the smart screen assures you that you want to watch.
Summary: This was an open box purchase through Amazon third party seller, but tv was brand new.The tv has excellent contrast and color but mediocre sound and decent viewing angles.The tv itself has no smart features(not missed) two hdmi inputs and usb 2.0 input for great video, music, and picture playback.The one negative but not too serious issue was clouding that was slightly noticeable when watching dark movies in darkened room.Recommended purchase.
Summary: This TV is superb! We are using it in a second room and it is a good way for all members of our family to watch what they want to watch. The color and picture is beautiful. All in all, it was a great buy.
Summary: Review is for amazon shipping experience, not product. Will update if/once I receive it. First was told yesterday ups dropped off my brand new tv in front of my 3 flat, outside in chicago (14 degree high) without permission. Contacted amazon.com immediately, but was told to jjust wait and see... finally got customer service to understand I would need to exchange it.
Summary: This is my son's smaller version of our much larger 56-inch 3D Samsung LED HDTV. The color is excellent--comparable to our 56-inch--and it has worked perfectly from day one. We wasted money when we purchased our 56-inch because we purchased the "smart" version of it that can access apps on the internet. However, you don't need a "smart" TV if you use X-Box and/or blue-ray players, both of which are already "smart".
