Summary: The Good: 1. Good design. 2. Good vibrant color. 3. Good features. The Bad: 0. The picture quality is worse than lower end Samsung TVs. 1. Black levels is very bad - my 6 years old Sony LCD TV gives a better lack level. 2. Uniformity is fairly bad. You will also see lights coming out of the four corners (like flash lights). Extremely anoying. 3. Buggy Smart TV aplications. I paid high primium just to get a Samsung branded TV, but it was not worth it.
Summary: I've had this tv for 2 weeks now. I have played with all settings and modes including the ones from the reviews on this site - even turned off all the effects and digital processing. The tv is beautiful looking hanging on the wall. The color reproduction is absolutely amazing on bright scenes and I don't really notice any hotspotting, flashlighting, etc.
Loved it - now wondering how long the TV will last
28 August 2012
Summary: Had this TV for 34 days. Everything is great about this TV except when you run apps using wi-fi (example Netflix): - If Netflix takes more than ~10 seconds to load the movie, the TV restarts. Everything works great after restart. - Sometimes there is only audio and no video. Restart the TV and everything works great. - Sometimes half of the screen has video and the rest is black. Restart the TV and everything works great.
Summary: Great TV with no issues except one. Did any have any light bleed on all corners of the TV while watching a movie on a black background? ***UPDATE*** So after owning it for only 2 monthes, my TV finally began to snap out. The top about 4-5 inches now have a strobing effect and its annoying as heck. Now have to call for a warranty issue..I owned another Samsung TV and was a different problem for it. The reliability is not so great.
