Great TV at a reasonable price - BUT ....
Posted by: aky13 from: on
Before buying this TV, my wife and I read countless reviews, both professional and consumer. We consulted Consumer Reports. We also spent hours at Best Buy and other stores LOOKING at TVs.* Because of prior happy experience over several years with Samsung TVs and a bad experience using a SONY TV warranty, we decided to stick with this brand. Once we decided on a size (we were replacing a 46" TV), we then had to decide on a model series. Samsung, as with other manufacturers, offers a wide variety of model series; each with slightly different sets of features and at different price levels.
* REMEMBER, what you see for demonstration purposes in Best Buy is NOT likely to be the same signal quality that you will have at home. They ALL look eye-popping spectacular in Best Buy!
BEFORE you buy a TV, you need to decide:
1 - size. Big is wonderful, but too big for a small room can be annoying
2 - resolution. Will you predominantly be watching TV? Streaming? DVDs or Blu-Ray discs?
3 - your budget, of course. Are you willing to spend $600 or $3,000?
4 - whether or not you want a SMART TV. Do you want to stream directly through your TV?
5 - Are you sensitive to "motion blur"?
6 - whether or not you MUST HAVE the "latest and greatest." REMEMBER, no one broadcasts 4K signals. I am told that Amazon Prime and Netflix do offer limited programming in 4K, BUT you MUST have an upgraded wifi system in your home (at least 50mbps; not worth it to us to upgrade our FiOS service) to get them. There are 4K upscaling Blu-Ray players but NO 4K discs yet. In short, your TV may be capable of displaying 4K programming, but there is not much available to be displayed!
Before buying THIS TV, my wife and I bought the significantly more expensive 8000 series Samsung model of the same size. SUPER ULTRA HIGH DEFINITION. Once we got it home and set up, we found that the picture was no where close to what we saw in the store. WHY? NOT DEFECTIVE!! The three signal sources that we have: Blu-Ray, Verizon FiOS cable and FiOS lowest speed streaming from Amazon Prime are all 1080 resolution sources. NONE of ours are "4K."
Simply, for what we watch, the TV was NOT worth the money. We took it back and dropped down TWO levels to this 6000 series Samsung. Took it home, set it up, and got a spectacular picture from our three signal sources with very little tweaking (there is at least one excellent web site with very specific setting suggestions for each model, IF you want to bother and if you feel it necessary).
I was concerned that the "lower level" of TV, with an actual refresh rate of 60Hz (regardless of what Samsung calls it and regardless of their explanations of computer trickery) that motion blur would be a problem. I see it in our now 6 year old 46 inch Samsung. Apparently, the Samsung computer trickery DOES work fairly well. The motion blur is very minimal and ALMOST imperceptible. I DO see it, but rarely and very minimally annoying. I am told that sports fans would find it troublesome. Doubtful to me!
The image quality is superb. Excellent color saturation, blacks, contrast, brightness, clarity and sharpness. The sound is surprisingly decent for a TV (NO TV, at any price level, has great sound. The likely assumption is that you will have some sort of external sound system for movies). I am hearing impaired until I get hearing aids and require a somewhat elevated volume. However, the speech is sufficiently clear from the TV as to not require use of my headphones.
What IS disappointing in this TV, and the reason for the "but" in the title of my review, besides the poorly designed remote control that everyone complains about (commonly used control buttons are far at the bottom and are difficult to use because of their location), is the SMART app feature.
Set up and connection to our in home wifi was fairly easy. Connecting to our Amazon Prime account was also easy. Streaming works very well. But use of the on board "apps" has been very annoying. I am particularly bummed that THIS TV does not have the same suite of apps available to it as does the 32" Samsung in our bedroom. I cannot get the "Accuweather" app on this TV. Of the ONLY two weather apps available, one is horrendous and the other slow, spastic, inconvenient and not overly helpful. Samsung tech support (I have spoken with them many times for several different Samsung products and have ALWAYS gotten the BEST care) tells me that there is NO WAY to change the app suite or apps that are available in each model. You have NO WAY of knowing any of this before you buy!
For the picture and sound, this is a great TV in this price range. Streaming works very well as long as you can stand the remote control. The apps suck, but this is a minor part of the TV's features. This "lower level" TV ONLY has TWO HDMI inputs. IF you want to connect more than two HDMI devices, you will need an HDMI switch box. In my opinion, not worth upgrading to a better model just for this!

great basic tv
Posted by: talha from: on
You probably get the best picture quality at the most affordable price with this item. The picture quality is excellent, especially if you plan to use it mostly for movies. You may need to adjust settings a bit to disable some functions to get good color calibration and eliminate soap opera affect. Some of the high end TV's and even most 4K TV's in the market are actually 60Hz TVs and you get judder when you watch movies. (movies from bluerays, dvds and computer files are 24 fps. So if you have a 60Hz tv, since you cannot divide 60 to 24, the TV plays one frame for 3 times and the next one for twice. This results in un-smooth motion which is called judder. It is highly disturbing for experienced movie lovers). However, this tv is an actual 120Hz TV and you will have no problem with watching movies. One of the great things about this TV is that it has a number of codecs that you can play your movies right out of your portable hard drive. Most tv's can only play files from a flash drive but this one reads from anything. I connected my 2TB WD external hard drive and it works like a dream. Smart features are not that great and extremely slow. Once you turn on the TV you may need to wait about 5 minutes before you can start using smart features. I believe it takes its time to connect to wifi. You can improve that by an apple tv, roku or chromecast. It has a full web browser, which is great yet does not support java, so you may not play some content online. It is also a very thick TV yet not very heavy. Another reason that I picked this TV was that you can use 10% bestbuy movers coupon. It was a great addition to our new place.

Awesome smart tv!
Posted by: LM2015 from: on
We initially bought the 50" Vizio smart tv, but were not happy at all with the picture quality. We exchanged it for this Samsung tv...what a difference! Yes, we had to spend a little more money, but it is so worth it! This is actually our 3rd Samsung flat screen, but first smart tv. It was easy to set up, great sound and picture clarity. We love it and are very happy with our purchase.

Awesome Image; limited HDMI ports
Posted by: KeepCalmAndGoToRio from: on
I am coming from a lovely VIZIO E-Series E500d-A0 which stopped working after my son's basketball hit its glass. I was spoiled by its four HDMI ports, and the option to watch 3D movies with my family, which we enjoyed very much! So somehow, I knew that I was going in for disappointment on these two specific areas with this Samsung TV; however, I had high expectations on the so called "Samsung" type of an image that everybody talks about. I only had a chance to compare the images in stores but after seeing so many models your eyes tend to see all TVs the same.
The recent Best Buy Super Bowl special brought the price down to the $570 neighborhood and I had to make a move when I saw one being sold in an open box at $440. I was a little bit nervous on buying this open box TV but after watching for a week I call tell you that this deal was a real touch down!
The image on this TV is simply awesome. I don’t know what Samsung does but the image has a type of oil-painting crystal appearance that makes it so much distinct. I did not fully see the difference in store, but I immediately noticed when I brought it home and put it in the living room, at same place where our 3D Vizio TV used to be. My wife and kids were also baffled by how much better the image was in comparison the Vizio and they talk about it all the time.
One of the recent reviewers said that “they need time for the eyes to adjust" and I fully concur with that statement. Quite honestly, sometimes it is a little bit scary how realistic the image gets, like on ABC/NBC/FOX weather news reporters, as they stand in front of the weather background, it seems like at any moment they will step out of the TV and walk right into your living room! It’s creepy scary!
Bottom line, trading the 3D feature for a better image was hands down well worth it. As for the limited HDMI outputs, I have an HDMI A/V receiver at home, so I am using its pass-thru feature to connect all my other devices (Blue Ray, FireTV, XBox). It works well for me but I know that not everybody has HDMI A/V Receivers so the 2 HDMI ports can become a real letdown.
Regarding the SmartTV features which some have said to be slow, I confess that I have not used it much but the little I used (Netflix) worked just fine to my expectations. Anyways, this is not a deal breaker for me since I use FireTV for smart TV features.
Now I am thinking with myself, "if the image on this 1080p Samsung TV looks that good, imagine how a 4K Samsung would look like in my living room?” Well, for that I will wait for a few years until the 4K price tags lowers a little bit more. Maybe by that time the market will also have more options for 4K content delivery, which at this moment seems to be still pretty limited.

Screen goes black
Posted by: Rose from: on
Only had this TV a month. Yesterday the screen went black, but we could still hear the audio, plus a small blue Samsung logo was floating around the black screen. Then It did it 3 times today. We have to either turn TV off and then back on, or push the smart hub button on remote to get the picture back. Ridiculous!! Anyone else have this problem???

Best Budget non-4k TV
Posted by: jpdhgl1215 from: on
I got this 55" for $677 on a pricematch vs daily deal at Frys so bought at local Best Buy and for this price I couldnt be happier - Multi-use TV for my home office where I have 5 monitors on my work computer and switch this from a multi-app computer monitor and when I dont need a 5th 55" monitor for work I can watch News or Sports while working and only 120hz 1080p LED that is Samsung or Sony (Only Tv brands I buy personally) I could find for under $900 so at 677 its a more than generous bang-for-the-buck if you can get it for this price via price match, daily deal, etc whatever when its available at that price. A little bulky in its design and Smart Features aren't as fast as I would like but had great Blacks, no-blur in motion, great for gaming, great as a monitor, and when you are selecting inputs if you hold down the SELECT button on the remote you can select "PC" or "Game console" etc and those other options actually have presets outside of the normal route of menu>Picture: Vivid, Standard, Natural, Movie presets you get from the menu when you use the default inputs that haven't been specified so there are more "hidden" presets for different forms of input sources you just need to hold select when selecting the INPUT and a list will drop down where you can select the sort of Input Device - downside to this TV is the bulky design, slow smart features, and only 2 HDMI but HDMI issue can be fixed with an HDMI AV Receiver, smart features can be replaced with Apple TV Roku, Etc which have fast UI response so really only permanent downside to this TV is if you have it in a room where you are going to see it from a profile view and see that it is about 3-4" from screen surface to back plate but from the front you only has about 3/4" bezel and high black gloss finish so bezel is really only noticable in high-light video. Best bang for the buck in my opinion - highly recommend especially if you can grab this for under $700

I just got my tv last night and I love it. Its not too heavy, my sister and I (I'm a woman that's 5'2, and small in stature) was able to put it together. Once I got the settings together, it's the clearest ever.

Great for the price
Posted by: Anonymous from: on
My short and simple review.
Bought for 699.99 on sale 741.00 with tax
Can install any wireless keyboard through USB not bluetooth
Stand is cheap and does not rotate
So I like the feature that I can hook up a wireless keyboard and mouse combo like the one that logitech has or the Rii Mini i8 handheld keyboard. I was disappointed that the tv stand was kinda cheap and didnt rotate. Overall im very happy with the tv for the price.

disappointed in overall quality and craftmanship
Posted by: rocketman from: on
As far as the picture quality and all the bells and whistles, it is as advertised. But the quality and craftsmanship of the cheap thin plastic mounting stand brackets and assembly, it leaves a lot to be desired. Two mounting screw holes stripped out with little or no pressure. Had to use a larger sheetmetal screw to make it fit. The overall structure of the tv mount is rather flimsy. "Not recommended for earthquake zones". Also, while exiting either youtube or Netflix, the tv freezes up. Happened two times in a week. Have to turn the entire tv off and then turn it back on and everthing seems fine. I honestly feel that Samsung is trying to cut too many corners with quality. One more thing is there is no "owners manual" as I think having a written manual is absolutely necessary !
