Samsung's woes continue...

9 July 2013
Summary: Purchased this unit in 2011...first impressions were great. TV is nice and light, easy to setup, slim and sleek profile and probably about the most impressive looking thing you could have in your living room/den. Fast forward to 2013 and this unit has now developed a problem which causes it to randomly reboot itself with a clicking sound..sometimes cycling through the click/turnoff/Samsung slash screen for 10+ times before getting back the normal picture.
Summary: The TV is really nice. But: TV remote stopped working. I called Samsung and explained that the remote control was malfunctioning. They send a tech who insisted to replace all kind of parts (bluetooth panel and some other panel). Then he finally realized that the remote does not work. Of course, he only had panels with him and no remotes. Thus, he could not replace the remote. After three weeks a new remote arrived and things where fine ...
Summary: It's absolutely ridiculous that Samsung does not allow Amazon Prime to function on this TV. They've got hundreds of other crap applications and not the one I really need. I'll be getting another brand next time.
Summary: Samsung and Amazon work fine on other models, but not this one. Tons of chatter on the net with this. I just went several rounds with Amazon, and they claimed that the hardware (ie processor) won't work with their service. Personally, I find it baloney. Other models of Samsung before and after work just fine. And other software such as Netflix work without issue. Their answer was to buy a Roku. Personally, I'd skip paying for Amazon right now and stay with Netflix.
Summary: I bought this television to replace a clock radio. I'm impressed with the difference. First, when I got the tv home I realized that the rectory didn't have a room large enough to adequately watch this monster. Father Jonas and I moved the television into the sanctuary (we had to rearrange some annoying candles and an organ) and we were ready to go. At first I must confess that I was dismayed by the functionality of the advertised features. 3D? And how?
Summary: My experience with this product gets worse and worse. I gave up ever being able to stream Amazon Instant Video and bought a Roku. Today I am trying to stream the Olympics with this TV. First of all, the QWERTY remote just inputs the number "1" when I press a letter key trying to input text.
Insane with True HD content, not so good without it
23 July 2012
Summary: This model is not intended for basic every day TV programming in HD, nor is it made for DVD quality and even older Bluray. This TV performs insanely well with TRUE HD content ONLY. That means newer movies actually made in absolute HD top tier quality will look life changing. Regular HD TV won't play on a grand scale without bluring or juddering. You will get ghosting, blur and stuttering very often.
Summary: I did a lot of research--a lot--before buying this TV. I must confess, I didn't buy it for its Smart TV features or for its 3-D capability, but rather due to the excellent reviews of its performance as a TV. And the picture has been nothing short of a-mazing! I had it mounted on a wall above a fireplace, at a time when there were other workmen in the condo, and everyone--including me--commented on how sharp and beautiful the picture looked.
