Summary: I purchased this TV four months ago because of my positive experience with an older model Samsung television. I do not have cable/satellite, so my plan was to use this television primarily for its Smart features. Unfortunately, right from the get-go, there were issues with the applications: sound but no picture on Netflix, a green line through the screen on Hulu, and absolutely no connectivity to Amazon Prime.
Summary: Main reason I bought this TV, so I don't need to buy google player etc and use one device to address my internet needs. I was unable to play internet movies and I was getting error "YOUR LAST BROWSER SESSION ENDED DUE TO LACK OF MEMORY OR OTHER UNNOWN REASONS". When I contacted Samsung, I was told this unit would require service. I was frustated as this was Brand New TV just 3-4 days old, and I could not simply digest accepting service as solution.
Summary: Bought the TV with the idea that I would use the RVU technology that the Samsung CEO promised would be in all the 2012 smart TV's to eliminate my directv set top box. After 6 hours of directv visiting the house and telling me the tv is not compatible, while at the same time Samsung customer service stating it is, I still do not have it activated. Also disappointed that HBOGO is not available on the TV even thought the previous years model has it.
Downgraded TV is correct as previous reviewer stated.

Summary: Replaced a Samsung UN40C7000 due to the left side of the panel failing, which was an amazing LED TV. Would purchase another one if they still sold them. Unfortunately, Samsung has downgraded their 40" line of TVs as another reviewer has mentioned. This thing only has 3 HDMI inputs and no VGA port for hooking up a computer. For $1,100 bucks it SHOULD have 4 HDMI inputs and a VGA port as their previous line did. Someone might say, why didn't you look at the specs first?
