      Fine picture, connectivity is limited

      Posted

      This TV has an excellent picture, but unfortunately, connectivity is limited to 2 not 3 or 4 HDMI ports, a single USB port, a single set of component video inputs, and a digital optical connection. This would be a much better TV if it had an analog headphone jack that would permit volume control on an external speaker by using the TV remote, and at least one and maybe two more HDMI inputs. I guess I shouldn't complain too much, but as the price of flat panel TVs continues to decline, the manufacturers are cutting corners on connectivity options. I long for the day when it was routine for TVs to have an analog fixed or variable analog audio output. I would gladly trade that for the Web browser and other so called smart features. Hooking this TV to any sound system that does not have a digital optical input requires more boxes. My 2 year old Samsung 55 incher has the analog audio output, plus more HDMI and USB ports. Other manufacturers offer a variable analog audio output..Why has SAmsung chosen to eliminate this? My NEXT TV is going to be another brand with better connectivity..

      This television was purchased by my 77 year old mother. I was shocked when she stated she wanted a large screen television. This is a smart tv (although she will never use it as it should be used). Very light, easy to set-up and put onto the television stand. Simply hooked her cable tv cord into the back of the tv and she wa good to go. Setting up the internet was extremely easy. She gets confused when she turns on the television in her bedroom and then turns on this one in the living room. The bedroom tv does not have the digital station for her local favorite. She always tune to Channel 4, so this tv goes to Ch 4-1 and is a few seconds ahead of the tv in the bedroom. Can't seem to get her to go to Cable 4.

      Great when it actually works properly

      Posted

      This TV has great picture and sound.... when it works. I've had the TV for 2 months and already have had 3 separate issues. When researching these issues, I found that they are very common among Samsung TV products and there are no simple fixes. The latest issue - the TV won't pick up wireless or wired internet connection. So even though it's a "smart TV", I have no access to Netflix, Hulu, or any streaming options. My TV should still be under warranty, so hoping to fix, but should not have these issues after only 2 months. Very disappointed, will never buy a Samsung TV again. Stay away from this one if you want a reliable TV.

      I bought this to be my main television because I wanted a bigger screen and a smart tv. The wireless feature does not connect to the internet so I had to use a network cable. The tv periodically turns itself off and I have to unplug it and plug it back in before it will turn back on, which sucks when you're in the middle of a show and end up missing part of it. I wish I had read the online reviews before buying this. I'll never buy Samsung again. I've used Sony electronics for years and never had any problems. I wish I had stuck with that brand.

      OUTSTANDING TV

      Posted

      In my opinion 1080 style TVs are becoming obsolete and sales people are pushing 4K tvs although most people just have regular HD service. I paid $399.00 for this tv and it will blow your mind because the picture is just as good as a 4k picture. An added bonus: If you have decent internet service along with Netflix, WATCH OUT!! YOU WILL LOVE THE PICTURE. I am normally a loyal SONY person but I am so happy I tried a different brand. Good luck!!!

      I didn't expect to get as much as I did with this tv for the price paid. It was a wonderful investment. There are a couple of issues with it but I believe this is mainly due to how it was handled by Best Buy staff and stored. I purchased the warranty so I expect those minimal issues will be fixed under warranty and I'll have the great tv I paid for. Picture quality is phenomenal! Smart capacity is amazing! If you're not looking for something that can do everything for you, then this tv might just surprise you with all it can do.

      Good TV, Not enough Apps

      Posted
      ChrisDC

      I liked the TV, I liked the price. It fits nicely in the space that I have. My one complaint is that the salesman lied to me...there is no SlingTV App. I asked this question specifically, as I am coming from an LG Roku TV and the App support is much better. I know it's up to the company providing the service to build the App that will work with all platforms, but it would have been nice to know this before I purchased. I will need to now purchase a Roku Stick.

      View movies and TV shows in extraordinary clarity with this 49-inch Samsung LED TV. Its 1080p resolution ensures bright, realistic visuals, and its slim design ensures you can install it anywhere on a wall or with a stand. I am using the stand with a built-in entertainment center. This Samsung LED TV has multiple A/V inputs for connecting external devices easily. The quality picture lights up the living room. I have had no issues with this product. It's a good buy for the price.
