Summary: TV picture is fine, setup was easy. Integration with other devices like my Denon 1912 is somewhat confusing, as which remote controls which feature when is not always clear with the interaction between devices. Samsung is not entirely honest about what is a "smart" tv and their Samsung apps. Now I'm finding that not all apps or features are available for their "Smart" TV's.
Summary: This TV has a stunning picture. Compared to the other TVs at the store, the Samsung's just stand out. And that's precisely why I got this TV. The sound quality is also pretty good on this set, even though I only tested it for a short period of time before connecting my surround sound system. The apps are great, but they could have included a keyboard. Searching for videos on the YouTube app takes forever because of the lousy remote and on-screen keyboard.
Summary: Title says it all. Picture quality is superb. Sound quality is intolerable. But the most disappointing is the not so Smart Hub. Video streaming frequently breaks up or loses connectivity. My cheap Roku or my Wii gaming system do much better with video streaming. And ironically, you can't stream Amazon Prime VOD on it. Buy it for the picture quality. Use your home sound system for sound. Use another source for video streaming. You're basically buying a monitor.
Summary: Bought this TV in a little over three months and I believe I have enough experience with it to review this item. This is the very first Samsung electronics I bought and I must say, I'm disappointed with it's quality and reliability. First off, All that's written about it's picture quality and the phletora of adjustments is true. For a LED-LCD TV, I find it has a rather deep black blacks and the colors to be accurate and vivid.
Summary: I never write reviews, but I am aways waiting for other peoples reviews, so I figured it was only fair that I start contributing. Especially since this is a new 2011 model and I am sure people are curious. This TV was replacing a 5 year old Philips Plasma. Picked up this TV a few weeks ago from Best Buy. Great picture. Good color and decent blacks for an edge lit LED. Great design also.
Summary: Ok I was very excited to purchase this TV. I had seen it in store and thought the picture was amazing. I had decided on the LED because of the slim design and quality picture. The delivery was fast and on time. I unpacked it and set it up within thirty minutes. I popped in star trek (the movie) and then I noticed the lighting. I could see in each of the four corners a faint lighting shooting towards the middle of the screen in the letterboxes.
Summary: Pros: Great picture and features while it worked Cons: Broke after three months, power supply and/or control board, Customer Service Bought this tv near the end of April. It was great and I loved it. Then one day it just turned itself off. I contacted Samsung and described the problem. They told me that a tech would contact me within 48 hours. No call. I called back. I was approved for an exchange and told it would happen within 5-7 business days.
