TV failed, Cost to repair in second year. Disappointing for "perceived" Tier 1 Vendor.
14 November 2013
Summary: Purchased the TV in late November 2011 based on my perception of Samsung as a quality vendor. TV is used in a light to medium duty cycle in my home office. Warranty runs out after 12 months. Turned on the TV this weekend to view college football, heard "pop". No picture, power on continuous cycling of on-off. Contacted Samsung and was told TV out of warranty. Suggested some service centers. Bottom line, IP board failed. Cost to repair $36x.
Summary: From the day I bought it has cloud affect on the LED screen. Called several times the Samsung repair desk. No use.. Finally they told me that all these products are like this. Even if we replace the panel, there no guarantee that it will be good at least 90%! It is very annoying if you see the movies in the night. other than that everything is good.
Summary: The TV is great overall - good picture, many features. But there are also many bugs in it. The one extremely annoying, is that it doesn't see new files on USB HDD without doing factory reset. This is really annoying, and their support acknowledges the issue, but during 3 years and 4 firmware upgrades they didn't fix it.
Summary: Nice Image, Good Sound, Buggy Software ... overall a really beautiful picture once you get it adjusted properly (the factory settings are horrible). Interfaces well with lots of devices, but the internal software (so called "Smart-TV") needs to go back to school.
Summary: I have always loved Samsung products, to there cell phones, tablets, and there T.V's, but this T.V i have had for only 4 months had has 3 repairs since then. First, was a line of dead pixels, second was a double ghost image in the pictures, third was another line of dead pixels. Samsung has been very good at fixing all the problems, but this shouldn't happen with a brand new LED 3D TV,Im glad i bought the extended warranty.
Summary: I'll keep this short, I've been a Samsung display buff since they came out with their first LCD sets back in the early 2000's. They make a great TV and I'm VERY happy with this model. I'm not an A/V pro, but I do enjoy watching a quality picture on a decent set! PROS * Overall, great picture quality. * Nice integrated set of features. * Thin form factor. CONS * Speakers are very weak. Thin TV's, by nature, have weak speakers.
Summary: I recently purchased this product on Amazon Warehouse. I couldn't be happier with the price and appearance. Super light, Super thin : ) Perfect with my Apple TV 3, and xbox 360. Good job Samsung even if the 2013 model is gonna be better. Well worth $800.
Summary: So I've only had this TV for a couple of days now but here is my initial thoughts on it. In general I would say that it has good picture quality. The blacks are deep and the colors are vibrant. Depending on what I'm watching there has been some judder/blur. Oddly when watching the show Luther from the BBC from on demand in HD I see a fair amount of judder/blur. Not so much that it's unbearable but it can be a bit annoying.

Pros: + Very vivid colors, crystal clear picture + Sound is very good + Looks awesome, 0.5" bezel makes it look great! + Included remote is pretty nice, with back-lit keys and a good layout + Low power usage + Built-in WiFi
