What it has in great hardware it lacks in software.

Summary: The video itself on this TV is gorgeous, excellent colors, darks, and whites. It's slim and very appealing to look at....that is if your watching something that isn't from the software that comes with the TV.
Summary: The app system is awful. In 30 days I've had to reset smart hub 3 times due to apps acting buggy along with having to reset my modem when the TV couldn't find the Internet which has also happened 3 times. Out of box picture is awful and required days of calibration.

Summary: Buggy, Netflix works sometimes, but mostly doesn't. No Pandora. The buttons on both remotes are tiny and unintuitive. Nothing is more annoying than having to turn the lights on during a movie to find the rewind, pause, etc buttons. Finally, 3D is a gimmick and its novelty wears off after a week.
Terrible motion artifacts in 60" model: the panel lottery is alive and well...

Summary: ****UPDATE 8/3/14**** So, it turns out that the panel lottery is alive and well. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, there are two sources of variation when considering pretty much any LCD.

Summary: Picture quality very good. I personally am not interested in features like gesture control. I want a great picture. I also want to stream Netflix and Amazon. I have my TV connected to external speakers. The only app I get sound from is Pandora but not Amazon or Netflix.
Summary: Amazon delivered my UN60ES8000 at 10:30 AM Friday, July 27, 2012. The two Pilot Freight Services reps had it out of the box sitting on its pre-installed floor stand and operating acceptably within 10 minutes. Getting my components plugged in and operating well together took another half-day or so.
Summary: Let me start by saying that I hate being an early adopter, but I did so because I needed a new TV. Having said that, I am returning it and going to try a replacement 7150. Strengths of this TV are: The panel that is on this TV is amazingly uniform.
Summary: EDIT #2: I've not had any additional problems with the SmartHub network identified in Edit #1. As such I'm pushing this back to three stars and will probably call it good as Samsung has moved on to a new line of 2013 TV's anyway.
