Awesome Picture; Atrocious Battery Life for Smart Touch Remote
B-52 Flyer, Amazon
2 weeks ago
Summary: The picture on this TV is amazing. It looks like the actors are actually in the room. The smart TV features are pretty good -- No serious complaints. The 4-leg base / stand looks cool, but it turns out it's a terrible idea because it severely limits positioning options on narrow tables/shelves. The Smart Touch Remote (RMCTPF-1BP1; Model Code AA59-00758A) is not that easy to use. The touch pad is inconsistent and takes a lot of swiping to navigate the screen.
Summary: I purchased it so I could stream via wireless network. Works fine for Apple TV (which as its own connection to the wireless network and HDMI cable into TV) but not so for connecting to the TV's own wi-fi e.g. using Amazon Instant Video. To solve this my installer said I need to hardwire the TV, which defeats the purpose of having a wi-fi TV.
Summary: Great TV. Fantastic Picture and easy to set up. I was initially looking at the 8000 series but decided on this one a little less expensive and the few changes in the 8000 series over this 7500 series are something I nor average to even higher end user may not see any difference. I'm very happy I choose this one. The voice control and hand motion control is OK. Not sure how much I will use it but kids like being able to talk to TV.
Pros: Great picture.
Cons: Renotre is not bad but buttons could be easier to press.
Summary: This TV has not stopped to impress me. The only thing better would be a 4K TV and right now it's not really worth it to me. There isn't enough products that will support 4K for me to justify spending $3,000+ on one. I got my TV for less than half of a 4K and the large open scenes look so amazing. I have begun to watch all my Blu-ray movies again now in true HD.
Summary: This is truly an amazing TV. Picture quality is excellent. Blacks are really black. The sound is okay, but I bought a Samsung sound bar, which greatly improves the overall experience. The smart hub is pretty cool, and the apps work really well. About the only negative I can say about the TV is that if you have the audio commands turned on, sometimes the TV just suddenly cuts off the sound and prompts you as if it's waiting for an audible command.
Summary: I am partial to Samsung products owning two 40" LCDs that are in excess of 5 years old. Setup was a snap,I realized that I had to change from HDMI 1 to HDMI 3 when viewing app related material. I wasn't interested in the jester controls or voice commands. Some folks do not like the 'soap opera' effect, but I have gotten used to it. I feel it adds another level of dimension.
Summary: We got this at an outlet price and have loved it ever since we got it. We had a 1080p HDTV from JVC that we thought we loved until we got this one. The picture is so much more clear and brilliant. It was like seeing HDTV for the first time all over again. But it also tried to do too much. It is nice, but sometimes I really just want to watch TV and not deal with everything.
Pros: Picture abilities, TV Frame size (meaning that it is thin and good looking), weight, camera, internet access, Skype motion footage, apps, no obvious SAMSUNG logo like Vizio does. YouTube access is great and can be done from you laptop of smartphone right to the TV. You can also use your phone as a remote, but it is very limited.
Cons: The remote sucks and the guide that comes with the TV is annoying. It starts from the beginning every time you open and close it. VERY annoying. And 3D just kind of sucks in general, not really specific to this TV. But, who really needs 3D? Honestly. Maybe with expensive glasses it is better? Who knows.
Summary: All the specs are on the money. For the price you'll be glad you bought it. Picture is noticeably cleaner and higher res than my "old" Sony Bravia 1080p. It links with the DirecTV Genie all-home system admirably, and it self-updates when Samsung has one available. The extra features are great (like a direct link to Netflix) and the Internet connectivity is an item of the future.
Summary: The picture is absolutely beautiful. Nearly everything else about this TV is an exercise in frustration. The remote is a bad joke -- the touchpad is nothing but a d-pad that ignores 2 out of every 3 clicks (and the remote goes through a set of batteries about every 2 months). The "smart" features aren't. Playing a movie from my home NAS?
Pros: - gorgeous picture
Cons: - plan to buy a replacement remote, because you'll need to... - doesn't play well with other HDMI-CEC devices - even the software update mechanism isn't very reliable
