I almost bought several TV's before I bought this one. I wanted a 55" TV but as I read the reviews of the lower-priced 55" models I realized that not all TV's are made equally. Another factor in my decision was the configuration of the stand the TV came with. The piece of furniture I had to put it on (which accommodated my 32" Vizio from 2007 just fine) was only 24 inches. While this TV was not 55" it DID have a stand that would work with my existing furniture AND it had NO negative reviews. It was at a good price and it was not a refurb. When I ordered it I was told it would take 2 weeks to arrive at my local store so was pleasantly surprised when I got an email just 8 days after placing the order that it was in. Pickup was a breeze (it was actually sitting in the order pickup area when I went to get it so there was virtually no waiting). Setup was a breeze (although the stand took a couple of minutes to figure out how to attach it since the "getting started instructions" only have illustrations). I have only had the TV for a week but so far it has performed exactly as advertised and as I would expect for Samsung products. I also have a Samsung Home Theater System so I now have matching remotes. The picture quality is what I expected and the HD channels look great! It's not a smart TV and it's not UHD but it really does work for me!

Works for Me!
Very Nice TV
We love this TV! The picture is clear, it has internet access so we bought a Roku, but there are other options. The remote control is super easy. In no time I could work volume, channel, sleep, last channel without looking. The body is slim, looks great in the space where our old huge TV was!
Samsung bang for the buck
Purchased online black weekend. For the price paid, about $375 including tax, can'the be beat. I got this since it did not have smarts built it. Can buy that separately for $75 or less, and upgrade anytime new technology is worth it. Great picture, reminded me of picture quality missing in my 8 year old 32" HP hdtv. 50" makes a BIG difference in viewing experience. Easy to setup for cable. While this is a 2015 model, I could not be happier. Highly recommended for anyone not needing a smart hdtv (I consider that an oxymoron).
Very Good TV
I recently replaced my old LG with this TV. So far no problems, and it seems to be a better TV as far as picture quality, and sound is good too. When I bought the old LG I paid over 1,000 bucks for it. I paid 460.00 for this Samsung on clearance sale. Heck of a deal for what I got. Well pleased !!
I tough I purchased a smart tv but I didn't but the tv is super great love it would live it better if it was a smarttv
This tv fits perfectly in my living room. Set up was easy. Upon turning it on it began set. The only thing I changed was the screen goes dark at night so I took it off the auto energy saver. Now it's perfect for viewing at night.
The tv works great, was easy to set up. I wish someone would have told me before I bought it that I had to change the cable box to an HDMI connected box.
Order and delivery were seamless. The TV is very light weight for the size. My husband and I were able to handle it to attach the stand. It fits perfect on the stand we had for our 37" we replaced. Nice clear picture. We quickly adjusted to the size difference. We haven't figured out how to connect our Bose sound unit yet, but I'm not sure how hard Bill has tried to fix it yet; unsure if it is user issue or more complicated. We have had it on several different TVs and I don't remember there being any hitches in the past.
Very pleased with picture quality. Before purchasing, I read bad reviews about the sound. Our TV is in a large room and the sound fills it just fine. The speakers lack umph on the lower end, so I will be hooking it up to the stereo for movies and whatnot.
Television was a gift so I really cannot comment on quality. I would recommend it to a friend because of the price. Did not appreciate the fact that the television was left at my doorstep for I don't know how long. My neighbor contacted me and advised that the box had been sitting outside for a while.
