Summary: I WANT TO FIRST NOTE THAT OTHER THEN THE ISSUES WITH WARRANTY SERVICE THAT I AM LISTING BELOW THE TV HAD WORKED WONDERFULLY UNTIL ITS RECENT FAILURES Purchased this item on 3/2/13 and requested a service request on 3/1/14 for "Display Uneven brightness Technical Issue appears in Picture Test" which I was told was not existent by the service technician they sent out. On 08/23/14 the tv began randomly displaying vertical bars and restarting its self.
Summary: The picture quality is great but very disappointed with the Smart TV capability. Many of the apps have user interfaces from the 1980's. The voice and motion features do not work very well at all. Wish I had a chance to try the Smart features before buying. I would just get the regular (non-Smart) TV. It seems to complain a lot that it can't detect the Internet via Wi-Fi, but it's the only piece of equipment in the house that seems to have this problem.
Summary: The TV is easy to setup, but you will need to assemble the stand out of the box. I cannot comment on the included 3D glasses or the 3D effect since I never used them. The touch remote controller is only good if you use the web browser function, otherwise use the standard remote. Here is the summary for this TV: Pros: Great viewing angle and ability to download/install apps for streaming and internet. Cons: Touch remote.
Summary: Nice TV and great picture, but the darn thing has gone down again. Bought the unit Dec 2012 and about 7 months later had to get the screen replaced because of a blue line going down the front. Now a few months later, its early March 2014, and just out of the 1 year warranty the screen went completely out..... That was kindly pointed out by the Samsung Support rep.
Summary: If I review this TV for it's picture quality alone then it definitely gets 5 stars. With such a thin TV it'd be hard to get impressive speakers in them, that's why you have to pair it with a decent sound system and get the most out of it. I don't usually use the features like Netflix, Skype etc. but they work as expected. No complaining about them. I enjoy using them from other, faster devices like an Apple TV or PS3.
Summary: I had this TV for about a year now and the quality is amazing! The slim TV is great feature.. The HD cables does make a HUGE difference in the quality of the picture.. I originally had the cable company 'time warner' cable box with their HD cable and noticed that it was not crisp.. I then tried to change setting on the TV and followed recommendations on how to set but still I was not satisfied.
