Don't Buy It for the Smart Features
Posted by: Chris from: on
I'm no expert, but the picture quality and sound seems good for the price. What annoyed me initially though is the smart features. The TV has the most common apps built in, which is great, but you actually have to wait 2 - 3 minutes after turning the TV on before it will let you get into one of the apps. And once you're using a particular app, it's not exactly the most responsive device I've ever used. So, if you're an impatient person, you're going to hate using this TV's apps. That aside, I found that the TV's screen mirroring is excellent, so I end up loading videos on my phone and mirroring them onto the TV. This works flawlessly and saved me the hassle of having to sign in to all my accounts on the TV itself. I also discovered that if I connected a bluetooth headset to my phone, it allows me to watch video on the TV and audio through the headset, which is great since the TV doesn't have a headphone output, just an optical audio output. Obviously, this setup isn't going to work for everyone, but it works well for my needs.

Great TV brand and love Samsung, but this model (5205) was before the processor was upgraded to handle the TV vs the SmartTV processing, which seems to get bogged down with streaming Netflix causing buffering delays. I returned this and go the next year model (5500) of the same TV which has an upgraded processor that doesn't have the same buffering issues.

Bought for my Dad for father's day. Big enough doesn't need to sit close, picture so good he doesn't need glasses. He loves it and keeps raving about it. He's so happy...seriously. Man likes his new TV, what more do you need to know.

Samsung Smart TVs do not support the FIOS app!
Posted by: klkvds from: on
According to Samsung, FIOS and all the reviews I read, Samsung Smart TVs support the FIOS Flex View app. Not true! In fact none of the Samsung Smart TVs currently on the market do. I finally found a FIOS tech to explain that Samsung dropped the app last year due to a software compatibility issue. Samsung is supposedly trying to fix it but Samsung and FIOS are just busy blaming each other. The only way around it is to get a Tivo DVR and install a FIOS cablecard. So much for truth in advertising.

I have been waiting for a reliable brand smart tv to go on sale for less than $300. I had to accept an open box model, but I struck gold. I have been home bound lately & this tv has maintained my sanity. The color has been great & Netflix... what can I say. The only difficulty that I have had is that the manual is worthless & I am fumbling with the favorites lists. I can live with that. I use cable.

Didn't work at all
Posted by: Kim22 from: on
Plugged in the TV and half the screen was colored lines with no text or image. The text on the other half flickered on and off. Took it back the next morning for a refund.

Must have bought a lemon
Posted by: Eddie515 from: on
Typically, Samsung televisions are reliable although not my favorite. This particular set I bought must have been a lemon. I had to turn the tv off and on again on occasion to be able to use the remote and there were issues connecting to WiFi. I returned it to the store and went with another brand.

This is a great tv and it works just like it says. I would recommend really reading closely and not just watching the commercials when googling this tv as this particular one only has 1 USB port... and also doesn't come with the screws for a mount. You don't have to worry though cause you can pick them up from a local hardware store, just know that its metric and the screws are M8's and that they need to be like 1 1/2 inches long. Also when you purchase the "mounting kit" from Samsung Parts... they send you the foot Screws.
It took me a month to find the screws, but the TV is still great and only took 15-20 min to actually setup and start working.

Smart function does not support many sites!
Posted by: noledad from: on
Good picture but Samsung refuses to support adobe. Because of this forget about using the smart hub on many on line locations like ESPN or ABC services. Very disappointing

Great picture, easy to use
Posted by: Jameson from: on
Great picture with this TV. easy to set up and the smart function is great. Only thing I wish was different is a center stand rather than the feet on the end.
