    Surprised to see this many good reviews for the TV. Here is my experience, both good and bad: 1) Picture: This picture is good but not great. In fact, the out of the box settings weren't great at all. I went online and found specific calibration settings and went in and made all of those changes, without much improvement, so reverted to the default. The reds are a bit strong across the board and require some adjustment. Too much sunburn on everything. 2) Judder: I did a lot of research on TV's prior to this purchase and got an education in new terms like "Judder" and interpolation, and input lag. I am not overly picky, so despite the poor ratings on judder for this tv, i bought it anyway. If you like to watch football on TV, you don't want this TV. Lots of judder. Just occasionally gets choppy for a few seconds, almost like your satellite signal is about to go out. I do have satellite but I don't think that is what was causing this judder. 3) Resolution: This tv seems to have very clear resolution on up close shots, but when viewing smaller details (like football players from the tv/field view) it is really fuzzy. Less clear than the 1080p LG i replaced with this TV. The was a definite deal breaker for me. 4) Input lag: Another new term to me but now I get it. Despite buying 28g hdmi cables, there is significant audio input lag. For example, when changing channels the picture comes on, but the audio lags behind for another second or two. So you see the show, but without audio for a couple of seconds. I know this seems small, but its crazy annoying to me. 5) Easy Set up: The best part may have been set up. It was very fast, and it synced immediately and easily with my wifi. Apps are pretty easy and accessible. All of this has led me to the decision to return this tv. Maybe its the 60z, maybe its something else, but for me this tv is just not worth the 1500.00 I paid for it. I guess the last point is the one I already knew--namely, that 4k content just isn't there yet. I knew this going in, but having had the TV for a week, and there being no real content of significance to access---its just not worth it to me at this time.

    Great out of the box, amazing after calibrated

    Let's get this out of the way, the "soap opera" effect so many talk about...simply turn off "Auto Motion Plus". It is in "Picture Options". As soon as we turn this off, my wife and I no longer see ANY soap opera effect. As for the picture (the only thing I'm reviewing) it is simply the best we have owned. I wanted a 4K TV that could produce a wider range of colors and Samsungs SUHD can. Out of the box it looked good, I searched the Internet for reviews that show post calibration settings with recommendations. Once we set ours exactly as prescribed, wow. We did some very mild alterations to tweak it to our liking but I cannot stress enough how well this TV performs. We have tested with HD from Direct TV, PS3, XBOX ONE, VUDU and Blu Ray. I firmly believe that whatever the source, this is the best TV we have ever owned. We have great color depth, deep blacks, no motion blur and amazing contrast between light and dark. Currently have not tested any 4K (thought it looked eye popping in the store) or any of the TVs smart features. I do not intend to use the TVs smart features and we purchased 4K simply to be ready once it is more available. We sit approximately 8 feet from the screen and find this to be a good size. Buy this TV if you want deep wide color ranges, solid blacks, quality light/dark contrast and a picture worth more than the price tag. PS: special effects (explosions, lightening etc) really pop and I am a FIRM believer that the wider color TVs like this are the way to go. We don't like cartoonish over saturated colors and our picture looks realistic. Seriously try the SUHD TVs out, you will see the difference.

    For months I was looking at UHD TVs waiting for the big Black Friday sale. We purchased the Samsung UN60JS7000FXZA 4K Ultra HD LED Smart TV. I was told that the Samsung UHD TVs with the "S" had better contrast than the standard UHD TVs. For a living I make home entertainment key art, so I'm very visual and highly aware of what is offered in the realm of digital home entertainment. I understood that only some streaming services offer UHD quality so I was looking for a TV that also performed well up-ressing 1080p. I was really excited to finally get this TV and save $800 at the same time. We brought it home and the testing began to see if the $1300 we spent was worth it. I cannot stand TVs calibrated with the high saturation that makes newscasters look ultra sunburn, so I put it on the "movie" calibration setting that is desaturated. I watched a few 1080p and 720i cable shows like “Homeland” and “Brother vs. Brother,” rented a 1080p movie through VUDU, and watch some UHD streaming movies like “Avengers” on Netflix. I thought I was going nuts because everything looked like a soap opera! I even had to look at a few of the same shows on my other Samsung 1080p TV just to make sure I was not losing my mind. I noticed a lot of jitter-meaning that when people walked fast or the camera panned it was not smooth, as if frames were missing. I have another co-worker that creates DVD menus and special features who claims that you have to really go in and custom calibrate the TV to get it to look good. Maybe I gave up too soon in returning this TV. It was not worth the extra money to me when I am happier with the look of my 1080p TV. Maybe Samsung should make a setting for a more natural film look that does not look like a soap opera out of the box. I do not think the human eye is meant to look at people this sharp. Now I understand why some directors and cinema-photographers say that they prefer the look of film over digital. I too do photography and when I do portraits I soften the settings so skin looks soft because it is more flattering. When we returned this TV I still really wanted to give UHD a second chance thinking it might just be that this TV was "SUHD" or the large 60" size, so I had the sales men show my husband and I a range of other UHD TVs with different video images and they all looked like they had the soap opera effect. So my recommendation is if you are looking into UHD TVs is to watch a dramatic movie that does not have a lot of CGI effects standing at the distance you would view it in your living room for at least 15 minutes to judge for yourself. The vibrant still images or slow moving videos they have on these normally are not good to watch for a final judgment.

    Do not buy if you watch sports...

    Surprised to see so many good reviews for this TV. Here is my experience, both good and bad: Purchased this Samsung 60-inch UN60JS7000FXZA LED 4K SUHD about 8 months ago from Best Buy. Overall---Poor quality for sports action!!! Okay for movies... 1) Picture-->Sports: Don't buy this TV for sports! If you like to watch football or basketball on TV, you don't want this TV. Lots of judder. Picture gets choppy on fast-action sports. Both ESPN and Fox Sports come through as 720p, but that should make little difference in judder. Also, I don't expect as much from Fox anyway, since Fox usually seems to have lower picture quality, but I attribute that to their cameras in some games/sports. Sometimes they seem to have fairly good camera-to-picture quality on Fox, and other times not so good. Sports action clarity seems a little better with 1080i on the major networks and TNT, but still nowhere near what it should be. Still get judder on fast action sports. I would say that picture refresh rate is a big problem with both football action and basketball action. Football and basketball players----Lots of judder, as if frames were missing during fast-action sports. Very hard to watch this when I am used to my old Samsung 60-inch Plasma TV, which is always very clear. I had a direct picture comparison with my older Sony LED TV, which is mounted just above this new Samsung LED TV, and the older Sony has much less judder. Tried some recommended picture settings online, but that did not help with sports action judder. Could not find recommended settings for this exact TV model. 2) Picture-->Movies: We are fairly pleased with the picture for movies and your average TV show. Good for most movies on TV and Netflix. Very clear and distinct picture with most HD movies. Color is usually good. Close-ups of faces show every minute detail on the person's face in HD. I have not tried any 4k movies yet. 3) Smart functions seemed to work okay, but nothing special. 4) Sound is bad and weak. Speakers seem to be muffled when listening to them. 5) Also, my purchase and my 5-year extended warranty through Best Buy does not show on my online Best Buy account.

    For the first 4 hours, best TV I have ever owned

    Was amazing for 4 hours, then it stopped working. We bought this on Thursday's pre-Black Friday sale, hooked it up, updated the firmware, and started checking out some UHD content on Netflix and Amazon. We then decided to check out Avatar on Blu-ray. About an hour into the movie, there were flashes of colors all over the screen, some crazy distortion happening, then the display went black. The TV would seem to turn on and off when using the remote, as the audio from the receiver would cut in and out, but there was no display on the TV. I disconnected all cables, including power, pressed the power button on the TV several times, then plugged the power back in and pressed the power button. When the TV came in, it had many vertical lines, but nothing else. I plan to exchange the TV tomorrow...

    This is an outstanding TV, and I talk from experience. In the last 8 years I've purchase many TVs, from LG, Sony, Samsung and Sharp, where according to my experience, Samsung comes in 1st, lg 2nd, Sony 3rd and Sharp 4th. Well with this TV you cannot go wrong -Amazing picture quality, and 4K makes you wonder how 8K will look. -With this 60",make sure you have 4K content to appreciate it. Get Netflix or similar streaming services with 4K content and a PC with a compatible graphics card to run 4K because if you don't your choices will be limited. If you get a compatible PC that runs 4K, magic will happen and you get value for your money. Probably you want to know if there's anything wrong with this TV right? Well, only one thing.... It will make you dislike 1080p. So good that I use it as a monitor. Highly recommended!!!!!

    My 48" screen TV was bought about 15 years ago and it was slowly dying. Samsung started running some black Friday deals on their TV's throughout the month of December. I did my research online, looked at plenty of opinions on Samsung TV's as well as others. I wasn't going to make a final decision until I saw them in the store and I was able to compare. I am very happy with my choice! This is a mid-level (price) 60" flat screen that has very good clarity and plenty of options if you are into a smart TV. One article I read before purchasing said most people are not happy with their choice of TV because they bought 1 screen size too small. I kept this in mind when purchasing as I originally was going to get a 55" screen. The next size up was the smart move. The one negative would be when there is an abundance of black on the screen you can see more pixels. I also noticed in the beginning some blurs when there was quick movements but I seem to be used to that now and it is not an issue. Just as with most if not all flat screen TV's, make sure you plan to get a decent sound bar or similar system. It will make the experience that much better.

    I had purchased this TV and ended up returning it a little too soon after not liking how the picture made everything look like a soap opera. Now I understand why film makers prefer film over digital. You need it to be a little soft to look good. After talking with my friend that does audio and video he told me about how you really have to spend a lot of time calibrating UHD TVs. Plus this TV overpowered my living room being a bit too big. I ended up getting a 55" LG UHD TV for a different room that was much cheaper and took the time to calibrate it and I'm very happy with the results. So if you do buy this TV take the time (about 30 minutes) to calibrate it and be sure to soften the picture a little. The main benifit of UHD TVs is that you do not see the compression like you do on an HD TV. The only reason I would not recommend this TV to a friend is that I have found a cheaper LG UHD TV that I am just as happy with. The casing and stand are not as pretty though.

    I really was looking at all different brands of 4k TV's, but until I went to the store I did not know which one I wanted. I was thinking I wanted a 55" tv, but after finding out both the 55 and 60" went on sale I decided that I would be happier with the 60. I was also torn between SUHD and UDH, but when I was shown both side by side, the nano technology in the SUHD provides a noticeable different in detail and color. I seriously could not be more happy with my TV. Everything is eye candy, and there is streaming content that is just fun to watch. Even the regular cable shows are incredible on a 60". I was waiting for 4k to buy a larger TV, and am so glad I did. Sound is not as terrible as some say, but I did buy a samsung sound bar which completes the in home theater experience. I no longer will be disappointed if I miss a movie in theaters, because my in home experience will be just as satisfying, if not more :) Buy this TV, you will no regret it

    Good Picture- Bought Open Box

    I bought this TV open-box and it has been a good addition to my living room. The picture quality is great and I really can tell a difference with the nano-crystal pixel technology. The TV picture quality is amazing with sporting events and has a "sports mode" that makes you feel like you are at the live event. Movies and TV shows work great and are picture clear. The only downside is at times the TV can lag- as if the picture can't be displayed quickly enough from the live frame-by-frame broadcast. This happens when I am watching sporting events and there are quick movements in the broadcast. This is due to the 60hz refresh rate (most tvs have a 120hz refresh rate). You normally can reset the cable box to fix it, but that is a bit of an inconvenience and takes some time for the box to reload. Overall good value for the price, but Samsung offers a better version (the 8500) if you are willing to pay for the added benefits.

    I was not in the market for a TV but outside influences (toddler broke old TV screen with sippy cup) prompted me to consider new alternatives. Since I loved my old Samsung TV it was a no brainer for me to continue with the Samsung line. I got a great deal on this TV, especially for the size and the 4K capability. However, to this day the quality does not seem to be as great as my old 52" LCD. The colors don't seem as vibrant as displayed in store. I've tried "calibrating" the TV based on several online sources, but still can't get a smooth/vibrant display. Lately I've also noticed a black circular hue in the bottom left corner. I am told it may be burn-in, but I can't imagine it would develop in less than 4 weeks of use. It's still a good TV but takes time to get used to.....in my case at least.

    So after 5 days of research on 4k TV's and talking to the store salesman this was the best tv for the money$1299.00, set up was a breeze, the picture is awesome, smart functions are cool, just the remote needs to have a scrool function instead of trying to type with the arrows. it takes alittle while, I am noticing that it is remembering words that are being typed so it will most likely get easier to use, all in all this tv is sweet, again the picture quality is awesome, if you leave it in standard mode the screen changes according to the light in the room. I would recommend getting this tv while the price is down, I also bought the Samsung sound bar with it, it really sounds great.

    Watched the price of this TV for some time & finally pulled the trigger with no regrets after a month of use. Also purchased the Roku 4 & am amzed at the quality of 4k programming, which, while limited is increasing daily. "Smart" features of the TV are replicated in my Roku and Apple TV, but the kids like ability to quickly access You Tube, etc without messing with other devices. Also paired seemlessly with my Samsung Blue Ray. Setup was a breeze. Only challenge is the tracing that occurs with basketball at times, but have not noticed on other sources (football, hockey or baseball) and is not a deal killer for me. Also, I have read other reviews complaining about the sound quality of the TV - mine is run through an amp and surround so I just turn it down anyway. Do yourself a favor and spend $ on a sound system that matches the quality of the TV.

    The last TV we bought was a LG Plasma 11 years ago so we have a history of when we buy something, we keep something so getting the right TV was important. All I can say is we hit the homerun. The Smart TV functions are amazing, the color and clarity are something I never thought was possible and the price was unbelievable. The only issues were with the delivery, mainly because we would have had to wait 14 days to get it cause of their volume of sales of ovens and refrigs. I was lucky to have a friend know how to install the wall mount and have a pickup truck but come on, having to wait 14 days to get something that is in the back storage room, you can do better than that

    This tv replaced a Panasonic plasma purchased from a box store that's out of business. I went to the Canton GA. Store and met Dave in the tv dept. what a huge help he was and remained calm as I flip flopped over a 55" or 60" as he said " go big or go home " so after having the 55" rang up ( I was being cheep ) I changed my mind and with a flip of a coin ( it was heads ) and went BIG and OMG I'm glad I did. This Samsung is incredible I also purchased the J550 sound bar with wireless sub woofer, also recommended by Dave the audio is awesome could not be happier. The picture on this is hard to describe except that it makes regular HD look almost like 4K. It's the best picture I've ever seem the detail is beyond belief. Don't think anymore about it, BUY IT !! worth every penny. Simply put I'd buy another without thinking twice now that I experienced it in my home. And Dave thanks again!

    It's not 240 motion rate (only 120) Without 240, you will see pixilation or blocky imagery with fast explosive action, or watching a parade with cheerleaders with sparkly poms. It can't keep up with everything going on. The TV also has an image "stutter" on occasion. The broadcast is not fluid, but jumps around a bit here and there. I have uVerse and I think it is too blame. I've not seen the herky-jerky while watching Netflix or Amazon. No herky-jerky while watching blueray either. This TV is a drastic improvement moving from my 7 y/o plasma. The standard HD stuff is great. Streaming 4K stuff from Amazon or Netflix is a breeze and great to look at. BluRay up-convert looks great Configuration: Components, BR, uVerse routed HDMI through Onkyo Tuner, HDMI to TV input. Amazon and Netflix streaming are sourced at the TV so I optical the audio back to the tuner. Setup was a breeze. Connection to internet easy. Accessing accounts with Netflix easy.

    I read several reviews on this model number from Best Buy and Amazon. The customers that gave a 1-3 star complained about sound being an issue. Mind you they did not buy a sound bar. So I did my due diligence and picked the sound bar "Samsung HW-J650" it works perfectly with the tv. Anyways another recommendation I would give you is to spend the extra money on the audio quest red HDMI cables. I purchased the $100 monster cables (1 cable ran from the PS4 to tv and 1 ran from the Comcast box to the tv) In my opinion the picture wasn't producing a "great" 4K picture. I wish I had extra money to even upgrade to the next HDMI cables that are $140 (the chocolate) ANYWAYS overall I'm happy with my purchase and I'm excited to say that install from geek squad went flawlessly as well. The 2 gel squad folks installed the tv, mount, sound bar and wireless sub woofer. They showed me how to use the built in YouTube and Netflix functions on the tv.

    At first I had issues going from dvd/other devices to tv/satellite because the tv sound did not work when the inputs changed. Also the remote did not work when this happened. The power button was the only button that worked. It was frustrating at first until I called Samsung and was advised to turn the anynet+ setting to off. Since I did that I have not had this issue of the volume and remote not working. But why would this feature be on the tv if it does not work properly. This feature should allow the tv to automatically change inputs when for example the dvd is turned on but sound doesnt work. Now with this setting off I just manually change inputs. On a good note, after fixing this issue, I do not regret my decision because the clarity on this suhd is amazing. I just wish I bought a bigger tv. I have it connected to a bose system and couldn't be happier. I would have given a 5 star if that anynet+ feature worked.

    Great TV at a reasonable price. Wanted to upgrade from a 42" plasma and 60" seemed the right size. Very happy with the purchase and glad that we decided to go with 4K. Only downside was our experience in the store. Talked at first with a very knowledgeable manager who passed us on to one of his young salesmen whom he said was "more TV tech savvy" than he was. The young man proceeded to annoy us immeasurably as he refused to listen to what we wanted in a TV and only told us what he thought we should have. He repeatedly emphasized how wonderful things that we didn't care about were, and denigrated what we had determined to be our requirements. We had done our homework and knew what we wanted, but he just wouldn't listen. Finally got fed up, found the manager again, and completed the transaction without further difficulty. The manager was a pleasure to deal with and the young "TV expert" was a pain.

    But a couple months later, there were other versions of the 7000 series, with even more features than this one, but MUCH less expensive. Also, for being my first smart TV, I wish I went with a different brand, for I can't hook up my phone and the browser is more work than doing it from the Xbox 1 or PS4. You have to have a Samsung phone in order to screen mirror to your TV. Meh. Also, nothing i do on this TV is 4k except a burning yule log movie on Netflix. The HBO Go App doesn't work but sometimes, other times it times out. It's really not at all what I expected for what I paid ($1,299). The picture is nice and the motion refresh seems up to par with the other 4k Tvs, but I'm annoyed so much by my other complaints, I still fee like I should of went with an LG like my older 60 inch. It does look like a soap opera often as well. But that has nothing to do with this score, just strange.
