Reviews

Very nice TV, but some functions are unnecessary.

Experience of using: Few months

Pros: Good 3D, Numerous apps.

Cons: Confusing /bad remote control.

I am Samsung's regular customer, because they produce a lot of quality products. My old plasma was replaced by this model and I can tell for sure that picture is much better and more vibrant. There are numerous apps and features, including motion and voice controls, but I can't make these features work properly in my living room. I didn't even manage to try them well. Sometimes the remote picked voice from a program and thought that this was a command. But overall the unit is amazing! 3D is outstanding!

Didn't meet the expectations

Pros: Great picture quality, Modern style.

Cons: Inconvenient in use, Confusing /bad remote control, Low refresh rate..

For this price I was expecting to get the best, but no... First of all, the picture quality: yes, it is very good, but not perfect. I have noticed blurring while watching fast-action movies and games, such as football and car racing. Though Samsung states that this model has 240 refresh rate and Clear Motion Rate... The unit switched off twice, while I was watching it and this happened during the first 3 weeks.

My next issue is motion-voice control. Do anyone use it? I think that it is absolutely useless. I didn't even manage to activate one of them on the first tries. Switching on the unit in a quiet room takes at least 3 tries. First you are repeating the same words quietly, then you start to yell at it. Motion control makes me feel crazy! Just imaging, you stand in the room and wave your hands back and forth. - Sound funny, but it is not!

Anyway, I will try to return it. I have had enough!

This Samsung model is just fantastic!

Experience of using: Less than a month

Pros: Easy Internet setup, Good screen size, Great picture quality, High resolution picture.

Cons: Confusing /bad remote control.

The TV worked great just out of the box. I didn't even had to adjust the settings. The link-up to Internet and network was easy. Now I watch internet movies mainly. HD picture is outstanding! Though the remote control is hard to use, I still can't get used to it.

No issues! I do love it!

Experience of using: Few months

Pros: Easy to set up, Good 3D, Good screen size, Great picture quality, Modern style.

I bought this Samsung tv about 4 months ago and during this time I felt in love with it completely. I didn't have any problems with functionality at all. The only thing I did was the shutdown of voice and motion commands. I don't need them, that's why I don't use them. The picture quality gets the highest rating from me. It is outstanding! 3D movies look perfect on it.

There is one small drawback that I have noticed while watching movies/programs, when the scene is very dark, there is a little “cloudiness” on the screen. I have come across this issue in other reviews as well. May be for some people it is a real problem, but not for me. I would buy this TV again and even without a second thought!
