Here's my thoughts after owning this TV for 36 hours.
A beautiful picture with lots of apps. I wanted the Smart Hub apps so I could access Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime and HBO Go via the internet. The built-in WiFi was essential, and works like a charm. I have a Samsung smart phone and tablet, and this TV was able to "mirror" their screens easily, so I could view their pictures or videos immediately up on the big TV screen. The more complex "Samsung Link" feature, where different Samsung devices can be linked and access each other's content, worked reasonably well, but set up was very difficult, especially with gaining access to content that's on my HP laptop, but in the end I could get it to work.
It's very light, giving me the option of wall mounting it. The speakers point straight down, which means the volume has to be set at around 80% for it to be heard. That doesn't leave a lot of space for an increase if the room it's placed in is a bit noisy. The printed operating manual is quite small and basic, and it mainly refers to a manual that's viewed on the TV itself. I couldn't find the answers I wanted there, so I called the toll-free number that's included. After a short phone tree a Samsung rep was there to help me. They spoke very clear, native North American English, and might have even been located in the USA. Nice touch, Samsung! They were really great to work with. I highly recommend this TV.
