When you can get the remote to work, it plays beautifully

Stephen Metterle, Amazon
12 March 2014
  • Summary: I love the style of the TV. The functionality with bringing up the internet apps & changing to 3D. The 3D is really beautiful but two complaints. The remote has to be the fussiest remote I have ever used. It sometimes doesn't work at all.

B.E.A.utiful picture, BUT some issues. Best you buy this one from a local store, you just might have to replace it.

  • Summary: Bought this from Costco a week ago. The FIRST ONE (yes, I had to return it) received absolutely NO IR signal. the remote, even with new Rayovac batteries wouldn't work. Even my TV remote app for my Galaxy S4 couldn't turn it on.

Would probably get a different TV now

Bryan, Amazon
10 February 2014
  • Summary: I've had this TV for a few months, and I'd say it's OK but has a couple of substantial problems that will annoy many everyday TV watchers: A) The unpredictable responsiveness of the TV remote is maddening at times.

Great Value with some Limitations

The Marksbury Family, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: This TV is a great value in terms of what you get for the cost. I paid just under $1,000 for mine at Costco. The large screen, 3D, and Smart TV Apps make it a good value. It is very slim and has a decent picture.

major backlight bleeding

solitism, Amazon
26 October 2013
  • Summary: ok, I'm giving this TV (55") 3 stars, which I think is very generous considering the light bleeding issues it has. The reason I give it 3 stars is because it is a large display at a decent price point, and if you can get over the dark screen light bleeding, the picture quality is very good.

Good...great though? Eh

Andrew Monnot, Amazon
14 September 2013
  • Summary: Had the TV going on two weeks now and here are some thoughts: The remote issue is real but the problem isn't weak IR or directional (at least horizontal) - the problem is the IR senson is on the bottom of the lower left hand side, so you have to be pointing sort of up under the TV.

  • Summary: So after having my 55" M-series for about a week I wanted to give some initial findings and considerations for potential buyers in the same boat and of similar mindset. I extensively researched every brand and screen type out there over the internet for months before I made this purchase and I...
