      I'm not an audio/visual expert. I can't give you a bunch of technical jargon but I can give you a regular dude review. With that being said... This is a fantastic TV. The picture is amazingly crisp and clear. Colors are very vibrant. Even when not viewing 4K material. Set-up and attaching the stand is very simple. The apps work great. I haven't had any issues with them crashing or lag. The built-in browser also works very well. The speakers are notably better than most but still not great. I still use a sound bar. I don't really notice a lot of impact on the viewing experience due to the curved screen. It's there and I like it but it's not a huge difference. I wouldn't pay 100s of dollars more to go curved over standard but with the price being comparable it was a good choice. The remote is small and cool looking. Using that to go directly to and navigate apps like Netflix and YouTube is, in my opinion, a huge upgrade over having to turn on my PS4 and use the controller for those things. Other than that, I don't use the TV remote. I've tried to use the Bixby voice control thingy. I wasn't impressed. seemed like I had to yell to get it to acknowledge my commands. Maybe it's to much technology for me. I watched some of the Hall of Fame game last night and it was awesome on this TV. I was already stoked about the season starting next month but oh man...I can't wait. To sum up...Great TV, amazing picture quality, better than average but not great speakers, Bixby..meh, great app platform or whatever and it works well. Nifty little remote, cool built-in web browser, curve is cool but don't pay a ton extra to get it over a standard screen, you should buy one, football

      that watching TV could be such a wonderful experience. I recently purchased this TV to replace my old DLP TV. I was happy with my old TV until a would’ve been costly repair prompted me to shop for a new one. The picture on this TV is fabulous. The colors and clarity are outstanding. I will definitely be buying more Samsung TVs in the future.

      I truly love this Samsung TV. It was really easy to set up & has great features. The sound bar, BluRay player & wall mount I purchased go perfectly with it as well. I also have only good things to say about the range I bought. Its super pretty and has a lot of useful tools & options for cooking.

      After watching a plasma TV for 12 yrs, I was a little leary about LCD. To my surprise, this TV has great black & white levels, excellent color & detail, & handles the motion of action movies with ease. My only minor complaint is the limited viewing angles. LIVE THIS TV!

      This is an amazinngly clear TV, lifelike picture. The only issue is that i can only enjoy this when watching videos in You Tube, Amazon, Netflix, or any video shot with 4K resolution. I do not get the clarity when watching regular TV programming

      I am 80 years old and not very tech savvy so this TV is great for me. It has features that I will have to learn how to use such as the voice activation and the Blu-ray but it has a good tutoriual.
