    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!

    Awesome Image; limited HDMI ports

    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.

    Great price, but not ideal for sports fans

    HonestReview

    I spent a LOT of time researching various TV brands and reviews based on my specific needs. I don't play video games, and I don't care about SmartTV functionality. I simply wanted a name-brand TV with a high-quality picture, and a quick refresh rate so that when I turn on a basketball or football game (which is what I watch 95% of the time), there isn't much motion blur. I read review after review on all of the major retailer websites, as well as professional TV reviews on CNET and rtings.com (ratings without the a). Almost every time, the Samsung J6200 (same as 6201) came back with solid reviews, especially for sports. In fact, even though the native refresh rate is listed as 60hz (Motion Rate 120), several professional review sites mentioned that since this is a 2015 model, and a non-4K TV, that the true, native refresh rate is really 120hz - based on specs, and testing. As a result, I finally pulled the plug and purchased the Samsung 55" (model: UN55J6201) for a great price. Unfortunately, that's where the good news ends. I got home, connected the stand to the TV, and plugged in the power cord. After an easy set up process, I turned the channel to CBS Sports on Spectrum TV as they were replaying a recent NCAA tournament game from 3/26/17. Immediately I knew I had a problem. The motion blur was very frustrating. I then turned on the highly acclaimed "sports mode" but all that did was make the picture brighter and the noise louder. It improved the motion blur very little, if at all. Just to be sure, I researched ideal settings for this model and spent two nights trying numerous set up options based on recommendations from other users and professional reviews. No luck. I even called Samsung. They asked me to perform a picture test on a still image, even after I explained three times that the problem had to do with motion blur during sporting events. I asked them if I could talk to someone else at Samsung who might be able to share some ideal settings for sports. Again, no luck. They said that my problem had to do with my cable box (Spectrum / Time Warner). The irony is that I have a 2010 LG HDTV (42") in the basement with less powerful specs, yet the picture for sporting events is phenomenal...using a Spectrum cable box. The reason I give this TV 3-stars is that, even though it didn't work out for my needs (sports), it may be fine for general TV viewing. My wife thought the picture was fine for news and talk shows. Giving credit where it's due, I give 5 stars for the store's customer service. They were tremendously helpful both prior to my purchase, and when I returned the TV. I was careful to repackage the TV in a way that would allow them to easily resell it as like-new. They were very professional and refunded my money with no questions asked. If you're looking for a solid, general purpose TV with a decent picture, this TV may be worth your time. But, if you're into sports, I would look at other models.

    Not a TV Geek - Regardless Nice TV

    This is not our first HDTV, but is our first Smart HDTV for the livingroom. Prior to making this purchase, I learned about what Ultra HD (and all those others hi-tech terms were about). I contacted our cable company to make an informed decision if we really needed the Ultra HD feature. Ultra HD is not available in our area. I had read several reviews saying that that feature isn't available in their location either. Therefore, I chose not to buy a model with that feature - spending the extra $, if we don't have that available to us. Technology just changes so fast - what will be out next that I might really want. I also read review upon review for months on end - going back to the Best Buy site as well as others - to see what those who had purchased this model had to say about it. One of the main complaints was the stand being flimsy. I have to agree with that. I don't see that being a huge issue for us due to the TV stand we have it on and its location. One reviewer stated that you can't go wrong with getting a larger screen for a small room. I tend to disagree with this. The picture is very clear. Colors are vibrant. Sound is great for not having external speakers hooked up. However, our screen size is the 55" and it's too big for our room. Visually, it's hard to focus on the screen when watching it in full screen (from the TV's location to the couch - we sit about 10' away). The eyes don't see the picture as clear as when you sit back further. We've put the setting on 4:3 (I believe that's how it goes) which works 100% better. Sitting 20' away (where my desk is in reference to the TV's location) - there's no issue in full screen. The time for the TV to turn on once the power button is activated - takes more time that a CRT TV (tube), but nothing compared to the Sony DLP-HDTV we replaced this with. In connecting to the apps - at first the TV needed to update - not a big deal and was to be expected in my eyes since who knows how many updates had come out since the day it was manufactured. We've had no issue connecting to the internet. Sometimes Netflix takes a few seconds more to load - but I attribute that to the high traffic on our wifi. It really isn't bothersome. The other apps - we haven't tried. For our use - there are plenty of the necessary connections for HDMI etc. We had Best Buy deliver the TV and hook it up. They had no issue what-so-ever in doing so. They made sure all was good before they left. I also had them take away the old TV rather than me having to worry about finding it a new home, selling it, or paying to have it disposed at the dump....even though all it needed was a new bulb. I just didn't want the hassle...those TV's aren't light in weight! One issue is that some movies come in as though there is a lag. For instance - people walking - you'll see a shadow casting lag (not sure that is the right term). These movies tend to be the older movies (think early 80's and before). Not a huge deal on our end since all other aspects are fine. We have not hooked up a DVD player or DVR - we're not huge movie/show fans that way now that there's Netflix and other streaming platforms. I waited to get the TV on sale and given its price point, I am pleased with it. This is the second Samsung Smart HDTV purchase for our home. I had purchased a 32" for my daughter at Christmas a couple/three years ago and for what I paid for that TV - this one was only a couple hundred more. In seeing how nice the picture was on her TV - I had a preconceived notion that I really wanted to buy another Samsung. We are not disappointed. In fact, comparing this Smart HDTV to our Sony Bravia DLP HDTV - this TV rocks the boat. The picture is so much nicer. Now here's food for thought - our Sony was a 50" TV and that screen was not hard on the eyes to watch when sitting on the couch - unlike this one which is only 5" larger. Personally, I would use the method of determining screen size for this make/model/etc., that they recommended years ago when making a flat screen purchase like the Sony we had. That formula was - for every foot you're sitting away from the TV - multiply that by 4. Example: You're seated 10' feet from the tv's location 10 x 4 = 40" screen. If you're saying, "but you went with a 50" screen when you made that purchase," that was because my disabled son would sit in his wheelchair further away from the TV than we did and he has a visual impairment; I wanted to make sure that he could see the screen fairly well. Now, he doesn't like to come out in the livingroom to watch TV. All-in-all - this is a great TV for us. I would purchase it again myself (just not as big of a screen).

    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.

    Disappointed

    I am disappointed with this purchase from Best Buy. I blame myself for not doing adequate research. I purchased this TV 18 months ago. It looked great in the Best Buy store and the price was reasonable. Of course the price is much cheaper today. The first problem is this set only has two HDMI ports. That really did not become an issue until after I owned it for a month. Second when I first turned the TV on it would take 10 minutes before I could access the internet. It would generate a generic message saying it was not ready to access the internet. I would need to go into settings and physically search for my wireless connection in order to automatically connect. This took about 3 minutes, but it was faster than waiting 10 minutes for the TV to recognize the default router once I turned it on. I started using my playstation for Netflix and Amazon Prime. Netflix would work better on the PlayStation. The smart aspects of this TV really leave much to be desired. Apps are limited. I was not able to install and download third party apps. I got an Amzon Firestick for this very reason. The remote would quit working on occasion and I found myself turning off the power strip to reset the TV in order to get the remote to work. The power chord is poorly designed. For some reason the power chord has a strange right angle that covers three outlets when plugged into my power strip. The sound quality was not very good. I used a sound bar so that did not matter much to me. The picture quality was good. so I kept the TV based on the picture quality. Eighteen months after owning this TV it would no longer work. It does not turn on anymore. The low price also means a loss of features, but apparently it is cheaply made. As I got on line to troubleshoot my problem I found many people with the same issues! First the Samsung note phone has issues with batteries, then my Samsung washer has a recall that requires me to buy a new washer, and now my Samsung TV no longer works. I expect a TV to last longer than 18 months and this is very disappointing. I guess I will do better research before I buy a replacement TV. I am looking on Best Buy now to see what else they have. One thing is for certain. It won’t say Samsung!

    I had never owned a flat screen or a smart tv, obviously. I wanted to make sure I got the best TV out there that fit into my price range. I researched televisions for weeks and also went into the Best Buy store to look at them and get more information before I decided on anything. I was told by an associate that I couldn't purchase a television that was too big. Now, I don't know that I really agree with that statement as my living room is not as big as I would like and if we aren't far enough away from the screen, it gives myself and my family headaches and I'm sure it's not great on the eyes. It took me a little while to get used to my new 55 inch tv, but I did and I love it. The area that I had the most questions was in needing to know what the difference is between K4 tv's, different types/brands of smart tv's and what to expect from the separate Televisionshower that come with different features. I love all of my Samsung products because I have never had a problem with them and I seem to understand the easy setup of phones and other electronics much better than other brands. I decided against the K-4 because I knew that not all channels were offered on this when I purchased the tv. I saved some money in getting a smart tv with great options, that has a quality picture and great apps that can be accessed. I also love that I can mirror my other Samsung devices on my TV and can share information between them all. I can pull up my pictures on my tv, from my computer and it's great! I also bought a keyboard with the TV so that I could manure around the Internet better. I know that some other tvs don't offer the Internet option. This was a great selling point for me. I still have some things to learn with my tv, but not one time have I been disappointed in the last 14 months since I have owned it. I actually disconnected my cable and simply watch Netflix and Hulu right now, and use the I tenet and YouTube. It is enough for me and for a low price.

    Although I might still recommend this TV to others simply because the picture and ease of setup is above average, there are other issues that drive the rating downwards. The TV stand is truly a joke. I can't believe how something like that passed quality control. I think they must have assumed that people would wall mount it or buy an aftermarket stand that connects to the VESA mounts on the back because that is what you will need to do. This TV is almost unusable with the stand that comes in the packaging. It wobbles badly even with the screws completely tightened. The stand only attaches at the very bottom of the TV so it leans backwards a bit. It's hard to enjoy watching TV when you can see the TV tipping. Motion blur is definitely an issue. I am transitioning from a 1080i DLP TV and I didn't have the motion blur issue before. Watching a lot of action on the TV hurts my eyes. The viewing angle is outstanding which is a big plus. DLP TVs have poor viewing angles so I was glad to see that when standing at a sharp angle that you can see the picture nicely. The WIFI and smart TV setup was a breeze. It took me a total of 30 minutes to setup the stand, connect the TV to my stereo system, connect WIFI and start watching. I have not decided if I am going to return it or just buy a better table stand or wall mount kit. The sound quality doesn't sound like stereo quality either. Don't plan on using the sound on this TV. You'll want to send audio to a stereo or sound bar. It's a budget TV so I guess I shouldn't expect much from sound. Looking at prices on other TVs, better sound usually drives the price up so that is to be expected. If you don't need the sound from the TV then it is a non-issue. Just be prepared to wire audio out to something else.
