      Comments about Samsung 55" Class Smart 3D LED 4K Ultra HDTV With Wi-Fi:

      I've had this set for over a year now. It has been an excellent TV. I recently readjusted the sharpness and video mode to produce a sharper, brighter display.

              Comments about Samsung 55" Class Smart 3D LED 4K Ultra HDTV With Wi-Fi:

              At first I thought the curve was gimicky but once I got it in my house I am very impressed. The color quality is fantastic and it upscales very well. The only gripe I have is that when using the smart features to play video like Netflix or Hulu there is motion blur and color banding, but I guess this is because it can't upscale the content. There have been some issues with Netflix working from the Smart Hub and it seems like any update fixes it but then after the next one it stops working again. Overall though I have been impressed with the TV and am extremely satisfied.

                  This TV is by far the best I have ever purchased. It has all the bells and whistles that you could possibly want. From the design to the picture quality it is truly amazing. I would recommend this TV one hundred percent. The technology is fantastic and it is very easy to set up and watch in no time.

                      It's absolutely stunning. I'm blown away. Picture is so real it's like looking through a window. The style and look is sleek and modern. Love the frameless design. 3D is great but the glasses hurt a little after two hours.

                          This TV has an excellent picture and 4K looks pretty amazing. I'm not a 3D guy so its nice to have the feature but I dont really use it. They have a lot of great Apps through the app store and it syncs up great with any media devices on the network for streaming. The one area the TV lacks is that the built in software could be a little less buggy. After some routine updates, certain apps will stop functioning. Whether or not this is Samsung's fault or the App maker's fault remains unclear. The remote is also pretty cool in that its got a built in pointer which is awesome for not having to type long usernames/passwords for apps among other things.
