Summary: I was apprehensive about spending so much on a tv having only seen store demos at local retailers. Any set can hide imperfections while rolling through content created to highlight image clarity, but I like action movies and live sports, as well. Nothing was available to demonstrate this set's capabilities there. I decided to move forward with the purchase for our media room, instead of a projector, and am absolutely thrilled we did. The set is, in short, amazing.
No Full Color (4:4:4) at 4k 60 hz, HDMI 2.0 Not Functional as Promised
3 October 2014
Summary: This TV has excellent image quality that will impress, but if you want to display 4k 60 hz content at full color (4:4:4) via HDMI 2.0, this is not the TV for you. It will not work on this TV, or any other Samsung 4k TV at the moment. It has been confirmed by dozens of people with HDMI 2.0 sources, and I can add another fist hand confirmation to that via my HDMI 2.0 Geforce GTX 980 Graphics card. A Samsung support tech has confirmed it as well.
Summary: Just purchased last month in conjunction with my home theater. After a few days I noticed a defect, a pixel that remains lit even in dark backgrounds. Needless to say, this is most annoying. I contacted Samsung and spoke to, and I use the term loosely, "customer service" and after asking me the most absurd questions about the size and location of the bad pixel, they indicate they will not send out someone to service the set until I unplug and then factory reset the set.
Summary: Viewing this TV is like no other. Family and friends envy it and wish they could have it. I bought it just in time for football season, looks unbelievable!! Blurays are to die for with ridiculously unbelievably clarity. One cousin said, "Its not a TV, its an experience (similar to IMAX)." Samsung got it right this time!!
Summary: I generally very impressed by this television. The quality and clarity of the picture is fantastic - even the intrinsic audio is very good. I have just started getting used to all of its features but have run into one glitch so far. To minimize the number of cables going up the wall to the TV - and to benefit from central switching of the inputs by using the AV receiver- I am using the HDMI4 (ARC) connection from the TV to my Onkyo TX-NR535 5.1 receiver.
