Summary: Purchased this item in 2011 and it is still going today as if it were brand new! Whenever I have company everyone falls in love with this TV! I've owned 3 Samsung TV's and would never switch to another brand. Even the 32" LCD I purchased for $1,000 back in the early 2000's is still running strong.
Summary: You can find cheater TVs, but they will not be as clear as this one. This smart tv has many more features than I will ever use. I have not used the 3D option, but I don't believe the 3D technology is advanced to the point it's worth watching. ( I don't like wearing the glasses).
Summary: I've had all Sony tvs in the past but since Samsung had been getting such great reviews I figured I would give it a try. The picture is great as long as the brightness is low. If it is high then you get shadowing. The bigger issue was just after the 1 year warranty ended the the screen died.
Summary: I would have bought TV for picture alone. Minor complaint about 'smart' portion. The interface is slow if you are used to using a computer. Small interface controller/keypad makes it frustrating to use.
Summary: Big TV, but not so big speakers. Internal speakers have blown up two times during almost 2 years of ownership. Samsung repair tech said it is assumed that the consumer will purchase some type of surround sound. He recommended a computer speaker system.
Summary: For the price, this TV is amazing. People often say the HD makes people look too real on the TV and ruins the effect, but come on - how can you complain about that. Never any issues with this and we use it all the time. It's actually BIGGER than we thought!
Summary: Panel died less than 2 years. A waste of money. Samsung has been cutting so many corners last few years to save a nickel. If you're thinking of buying, Look up the class action lawsuit against them. Not a company that has the consumers best interests in mind. I'm done with them.
