A:AnswerYes. Along with multiple sounds modes it also has DTS TruSurround HD and DTS TruDialog to help level the background and foreground sounds. If that is not enough it has a built in Equalizer and speaker proximity setting to obtain the proper sound for any environment.
A:AnswerMotion rate refers to the number of frames per second that a TV is capable of displaying. The higher the motion rate, the "smoother" the motion is going to be for the TV.
However, it's really debatable whether or not there is any noticeable difference between watching TV in 60 Hz or 120 Hz. The only situation where you should really care about it is if you're using your TV as a monitor for a gaming PC. High-end gaming PCs that play games at higher than 60 FPS will experience visual artifacts and "screen-tearing" if you try to play them on a monitor that's incapable of displaying the frames as fast as the system is feeding them. You'll be fine playing on consoles, because they don't play any games at higher than 60 FPS.
A:AnswerGo into Menu settings and adjust the display size to zoom 1 (zoom 2 may be too much zoom and you'll lose info off the screen). The aspect ratio defaults at 16:9 and a 4:3 picture will have black bars, so just adjust it properly or live with the bars
A:AnswerHi, I'm a sales consultant at Best Buy.
I recommend you go into the store to speak with a Blue Shirt about the possibility of an In-Home setup. Depending on how much work they have to do to mount a TV or just hook cables up it could range from $50-$150 for simple setups or mounts. Again, I would go to store to get an exact quote of what you want done. They can schedule an installation in store as well.
A:AnswerNo, the smart hub runs on separate hardware than the display and requires some time to boot up, whereas the screen comes on instantly.
Have you considered a cheap digital antenna, this way you could get some local channels when first turning on the TV.
For most people's residential uses, the audio will be sufficient for listening and enjoying. That said, because of the thin design of the television, speaker size is limited and can produce only so much audio.
For movie watching or heavy TV use, you might consider upgrading to a soundbar or a Home Theater system, and Samsung has a wide selection of those available, too.
If we can help, please let us know how.
Thanks for your interest in Samsung products.
A:AnswerIt has HBO Go, Amazon prime video, Netflix, and Hulu. I'm not really sure what you're asking when you say out of the box. The tv uses "Samsung apps" to get apps so if the app is on there it's coming from Samsung apps. Some other things it has is YouTube, Pandora, Facebook, fandango now, and web browsing on the Internet. I haven't downloaded many apps yet so that's all I can tell you for now.
