Summary: I did some research, read some reviews, one of which led me to this TV. I specifically selected this non-smart TV because I have a media player with apps. I feel, now, that a TV might've been a bit more responsive, but I don't think I'll use them often enough for it to be worthwhile. I've watched some videos and played a game on the TV, and after some recommended setting-changes, I must say, I'm very pleased with the image.
Summary: This is a great TV for the most part. The design is beautiful, the 3D is a great feature and the menus are easy to navigate. The 40" version I bought did not have built-in wifi and this is NOT a smart TV (I knew those things already). However, Samsung seems to be suffering from some quality control issues on its TV's.
Initial reaction: great picture and love that you can watch 3D movies on this set

Summary: Only had this TV for a few days so can only give my initial reaction. Love the picture quality (have it set to natural) and the fact it's not a "Smart TV" (instead bought a Samsung 3-D Smart Blu-ray player to go with it that was easy to set up). And the 40 inch size is perfect for my bedroom to watch all my favorite shows and wath Sports and movies on. Plus I can watch my favorite 3-D movies too! Highly recommended TV!!!!
Summary: Third time is indeed a charm. The first two sets arrived damaged, but Amazon was great and extremely helpful in returning the first two. The third set arrived with no damage. Set up was an absolute breeze, not only for the TV but for the 3D/Blu-ray player I bought to go along with the TV. It took maybe 4 minutes to attach the base, less than that to set up the TV, and about the same to set up the wi-fi blu-ray player, including signing in to my Netflix account.
Summary: I purchased this TV June 16, 2014 after reading many reviews online both professional and customer. I came to the conclusion that all the negative reviews were purely due to customers with serious gadget impairment. I have been an owner in the HDTV/Digital theater suround sound equipment since the 90's having a strong technical background can say without a doubt that customers need to understand that TV's and surround sound equipment needs to be calibrated individually...
Best part was connecting my hard drive for instant movie night.

Summary: Wish I would have purchased here, but found it at Sams Club and purchased before coming here to check the price. The most awesome part is that I can connect my TB drive of movies and play them immediately. Scrolling through is a bit slow but other than that, I can remove my big hard drive and insert my thumb drive for an instant pic slide show or listen to my my latest musical downloads instantly. I haven't used the 3D I Cant lie but I hear is perrrty cool.
Summary: Best TV for the price. Great picture quality. 120hz refresh rate. and even though I don't like 3d, it does have pretty good 3d. I am very happy with this TV and would defiantly recommend it to anyone looking for a reasonably priced TV.
Great TV if you are looking for a great picture and quality refresh rate

Summary: Overall great TV that your getting here. I could care less about SmartTVs, and didn't care much for the fact that this is a 3D TV. The fact that it is a 3D means that it has to have a quality refresh rate to be able to produce high quality and smooth picture. Its great for gaming off my PC, and was a great price for the size, quality, and GHz.
