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 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: I love it. The voice command is good. Nice to just walk in my room and tell my tv to turn on. Dont really use the motion control so i dint have a comment about that. Over all im happy with my TV, netflix and pandora work great and its nice to watch my anime on crunchy roll in full HD.
Summary: Let me start off with saying the T.V. picture looks great and was surprised by how good the 3D quality is. That being said about 2 months after purchasing this TV I got a red vertical line. Contacted amazon and was directed to Samsung due to issue occurring after 30days. Spoke to Samsung and was told a tech will arrive on Monday only to be contacted and told that they didn't have a tech available for that day it was just a tentative schedule not actual.
Summary: I've had this TV for a couple of weeks now. It has performed well. Amazon, Paul's TV and Pilot Freight Services did a great job of getting this TV into my home and set up. Picture is fabulous with plenty of presets to choose from or available adjustments to suit your eye. Inclusion of two remotes, one standard and one Smart controller with mouse pad is a nice touch.
Summary: Initially I was very skeptical to go with this purchase as I was not sure about the seller - Paul's tv. But took the risk of trying it out. Everything went fine without any issues. The delivery was perfect. In fact, they delivered it 4 days earlier than expected. It was a white glove delivery as promised by the seller. The TV looks great. The Picture looks crisp and clear.
Summary: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thoughts on Picture Quality -I had to decide between the Panasonic Viera VT50 or this. The picture quality is great between the two models. I honestly can't really tell the difference. People go on and on about how the black levels in the Panasonic model is better..but to be honest most people don't care or notice.
Summary: Picture quality is great so I'm not gonna go on about that. My review is more on the apps. Skype is great. The built in camera works great. The browser is slow. Almost unusable because it is so slow. Samsung desperately needs to build in a keyboard into their remote like the Sony Google TV. Typing with the smart remote is horrible. Good news is that you can use an android tablet and the Samsung remote app which allows you to type using the tablet.
