Summary: I purchased this TV based upon the price and the reviews. The TV met all my expectations and shows a great picture. I was able to use the information from previous reviews to adjust the settings with no problems. The family loves the picture and the quality and we get a very good view from most anywhere in my family room, which is pretty large.
Summary: Great TV for the money. I wanted a basic TV with a good picture and none of the "fluff" that comes with the "smart" tv models for less than 1k. My ROKU box handles all of the media streaming so I did not want to pay for the smart features. It's a 120hz panel so don't think you are getting a 240hz model because of the clear motion rate advertising 240. It will come set-up with all of the filtering and interpolation set high and it will have the "soap opera" effect.
Would give 4.5 stars - happy purchase - great if you don't need bells and whistles in the TV

Summary: Own the 35" model of this TV which has same positives and/or negatives often described - outstanding picture, only 2 HDMI sockets, basic sound, and the often-complained-about no audio out jack. Happily for me I just want to watch TV and Blu-Rays, so sound was improved for movies by purchasing a Yamaha YAS sound bar and attaching to a "smart" Samsung Blu-Ray player, e.g.
Summary: We just needed a bigger screen for our new large family room. We didn't need to jump on the internet or wave my hand at it like I'm using the force. For a super clean, clear picture, this is it for the money. Doesn't seem to have audio outputs for super surround sound, but I honestly haven't investigated too much. For a flat screen, the speakers are sufficient to "just watch tv.
