            This TV is My first experience with Samsung and I'm very impressed. The picture quality is ridiculously detailed with colors bursting from the screen. Being able to enjoy high quality streaming services has given Us many more viewing options. I'm very glad to have sacrificed to afford the best model possible. I am still being amazed with the 4K picture and am watching all My old Blu-ray's. Everything looks awesome on this TV. I couldn't be more satisfied.

                  So far so good,this set is replacing a Pioneer plasma so it has its work cut out for it.It took a day or so to get used to the difference between Plasma and LCD but I'm seeing a sharper image than the Pioneer has but the blacks are still better on the plasma<not a deal breaker by any means this set has a really nice PQ, still haven't figured out how to get audio from the apps into my audio system yet but I'm sure I'll get it right with a little more time

                    I did a lot of research before my purchase. I am very happy with the picture quality and performance of the TV so far. It is highly rated deservitly so. The one draw back is the vague and lacking set up instructions concerning proper or recommended connections and some of the features like anynet+. Generally instructions will include a diagram showing several recommended options and perhaps it just doesn't matter as the TV is smart or smarter than me. I find most of the instructions written as if I should already know what anynet is how it operates and capabilities. Better instructions would be more suiting a device of this value and cost. There are several abbreviations on the inputs which one must dig to find the meaning but no real recomendations as far as which device is best suited for which he I input.

                          I love the color and crispness of the picture. Two disappointments: the built-in speakers and losing crispness of picture when viewing at an angle. Overall, though, it really is a beautiful picture. I had to buy a sound bar to get decent sound.

                                    Love the new TV but it has its issues. Mainly problems connecting to the Internet. Constantly says cannot find server. Have tried everything but to no avail. Also the app for the I pad and I phone are totally useless always says. Connection failed. Evidently this is a problem for many people. So don't buy this if you intend to use the to access the web. The picture is amazing and the price it great. Sound is a little tinty. I guess they want you to buy the sound bar. Considering how electronics are now disposable items. I guess I'll have a new tv in 3 years anyway
