    Bought this TV after doing a couple walk throughs at the local Best Buys and appliance stores in my area. Was set on getting a 4K TV but wasn't sure yet on the size and whether I wanted it curved or flat. After seeing this TV and the price for the first time I had to research it further. I noticed Samsung has a TV out currently with similar specs but its was $100 more expensive at most stores. I found out that Samsung currently has a 6500 and 6490 TV with almost identical specs 55" 4K curved. This TV is the 6490 which in comparing with the 6500 is only missing the bluetooth and the upgraded remote. Everything else is almost identical. For the price difference I figured I could go with out those two features so I went ahead and bought this TV. Couldn't be happier with my purchase ! Took all of about 15 minutes to set up and the picture was fantastic. I have Comcast X1 and everything hooked up seamlessly with the TV ( Tip for Comcast users: Go into the settings of your cable box and upgrade the output to the highest quality I think its 1080P HD currently it helps with the picture ) Live sports are awesome watched football and basketball on it already and its a noticeable improvement form my old set ( samsung LCD ). We rented Wonder Woman and it looked great on the TV, watched it 4 times mostly for Gal Gadot but the TV helped. Video games are excellent on it also, may want to go with a cooler color tone for Video Games but other than that it works well. 110% recommend this TV to anyone on the market for a new one. I like nice things but I like saving money even more and this TV allowed me both. Still dont know if the curve thing helps with the picture quality at all but overall the TV looks and performs great so i would have to say....yes... I guess ?

    Can't beat it

    I had a Vizio 4k, which I loved, but it was starting to go, it was a display model after all so I got three good years out of it. I was looking to stick with Vizio and Best Buy had this Samsung for a good price, they even matched the Target price because Target was having a one day sale and the timing was perfect. I never saw the need to go curved and I wasn't really shopping for curved but I am so glad I did. My living room is awkwardly spaced so this really helped with watching from different sides of the room. It's a brand new TV series, I believe this model is less than a month old (November 2017 purchase date). The speakers are awesome. It has an app store so I can get more than just Netflix and Hulu. I know the 6500 has bluetooth but it wasn't worth the extra $150 or so. PS4 looks great. Blu Rays and DirecTV look great. The only time it looks bad is when it is standard definition. It looks like it is lagging, but for us that wasn't really an issue. The setup was so simple and the TV recognizes most things it connects with. Only three HDMI ports so that is a downside but it comes with two USB ports which I often utilize. 4K with true blacks make for an awesome picture. It's not top of the line Samsung, but for the price range, the differences are not even noticeable.

    Nice Smart TV with a Glare

    This curved TV was purchased to replace the 55" 6 series Samsung that my toddler son decided to take a bat to and break the screen. We decided to go with a curved to maximize the viewing and the 6 series since it was more affordable than the 8 series (don't need another accident). We hired a professional to install the TV and installation seemed to be a breeze. Setting up the apps and preferences was easy for me as well, with some guidance from the technician. I really love the Smart features that this TV has. It already has commonly used apps already downloaded on it, YouTube, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and some others. I have accounts with the first 3 so I did not need to download anything. Setting up the home screen was also very intuitive. We purchased an antennae and we get quite a few channels even being over 30 miles from the towers. Our sound is sourced directly to our Onkyo surround sound. The sound is great and the picture is perfect. My only con is that because of the curve in the TV, there is a glare during the day when we are standing about 20 feet away in our kitchen. It can be fixed by closing the curtains but we did not have to do that before. It is something that we can live with, but we wouldn't purchase another curved TV because of it.

    Replacement for my Plasma

    After 10 years of great service from my Panasonic 58" plasma became ill I decided to shop for a new set. Since I work at BB selling home theater products I had some time to look at a lot of products. The way prices have come down and I was looking for a great TV at a reasonable price. Since Panasonic is out of the market It's between Sony, Samsung or LG. We put this TV on sale last night and for a TV under 600.00 that's 4K and Curved it was hard to beat. Got it home and set it up the picture looks great. It's not a Plasma but I'd have to spend over 2000 for an OLED to get that look and why do that when they'll be under a 1000.00 in a couple of years. Like computers, you'll never catch technology if you're chasing it so get the most bang for your buck and this was it at this time. Great detail and color and would buy it again. Great TV for the price. Still going get the Plasma fixed because nothing beats Plasma.

    TV will not accept login info.

    I bought this tv last night as a Black Friday special. I have spent at least 3 hours trying to log in to my Samsung account but it keeps telling me that my email address or password is wrong. I changed my password online because it wouldn't even let me do that from the tv. It still would not accept my login info. I called customer support they logged in remotely to my tv and after a half hour said it could take a day or so for the new tv to recognize my new password.It never even recognized my old password! then i was told to call a seperate number for account support. So they wasted my time since they couldnt clear it up anyway. also the remote is so small that you inadvertently hit more than one button at a time unless you are very careful if that happens it kick you out and you have to begine the sign in process all over again. Im probably bringing it back and buying a sony or anything that is not samsung.

    I'm really happy with this purchase! Originally bought the tv because the previous one didn't have enough HDMI ports (really, it did, but I didn't know that until it was off the wall and new one was going up) but I am so pleased with the picture quality and how easy it is to go between streaming services. I was on the fence about ditching cable and going to streaming with the old set because it was slow and not the easiest to navigate but with this tv, I can really see why people stream exclusively and do away with cable. I think this is a great bargain for a smart tv with a great picture.

    Excellent Televisiom

    Pros: HDR Feature 4k 120 motion rate (huge plus compared to cheaper 4k TVs) Curve creates great perception with the picture. You'll be one of the only people you know with a superior curved television. TV speakers pretty good for TV speakers Links with Samsung speakers, must be wired but can use primary remote to control TV/Speakers Cons: Would like to be able to adjust Treble, Bass and Mids with the sound but surprisingly unable to. Awesome TV all around.

    Trust me when I say I read every review and all specifications on every single TV. This 55 inch Samsung has all you need. It can upscale low resolution great. The 120 motion rate is just fine. It has HDR however it doesn't need it. You can change that around in the settings. If you're going to use it with an antenna it receives a program guide that is nice. It has a full remote also and is helpful. Smart features work great. I use my smart phone for a hot spot. The built in speakers work well. There is a setting to amplify the sound. Overall you'll be glad u got a Samsung.
