    Comments about Samsung 55" Class Smart Curved Quantum 4K SUHD TV With Wi-Fi:

    This TV has all the bells and whistles like a thin bezel and support HDR the newest viewing technology. I also enjoy the smart hub that only uses one cord to the TV, so you don't have to keep pulling cables and removing TV from wall.

      I would like to say thank you to Samsung for a great TV. Because of the new remove the password is shown on the screen. If you have kids they will see the password as you enter it.

          Comments about Samsung 55" Class Smart Curved Quantum 4K SUHD TV With Wi-Fi:

          This is the first TV which automatically upgrades to the 4K experience, depending on the streaming content. When viewing content on this TV, we automatically started seeing items we missed on our older version that this TV replaced. The ease at which this connected to my home network was very easy. As well as the ease of connecting to the additional apps on the TV. My Samsung TV also is very adaptive as my samsung cell can become my remote for the tv when I need to change the TV. This is truly a smart TV. :D

          By far best TV I've ever owned

              Comments about Samsung 55" Class Smart Curved Quantum 4K SUHD TV With Wi-Fi:

              This tv as a whole is so amazing. It's beautiful even when it's not turned on. Then you turn on Netflix or Xbox one and holy cow it's even better. The picture is beyond phenomenal. It's basically perfect. The only downside of this TV is the sound isn't great but pretty much every TV is like that so it didn't affect myl overall scoring of this item. Ill just purchase a sound bar for it. Also you can send the sound to your Samsung phone and plug in earbuds to listen that way. You can also connect bluetooth headphones to the TV and listen that way. Which next pay im ordering some quality headphones to use when my roommate is sleeping. You will love this tv if you buy it before they're all gone. This 2016 model is getting better ratings than the 2017 model and it's cheaper. Can't beat that.

              Stunning picture

              from Orlando

              Pros

              • Bright display
              • Realistic color

                  Comments about Samsung 55" Class Smart Curved Quantum 4K SUHD TV With Wi-Fi:

                  The picture is great, even in bright rooms when watching dark films. Colors appear very accurate with minimal adjustment. I do wish the Tizen OS App Store had a broader selection, namely a WatchESPN app, but I hopefully it will improve in future updates. Overall, Tizen is very snappy, clean, and nonintrusive, which is big plus over older Samsung interfaces I have seen/used.

                    I wanted to step up my viewing experience and THIS TV does it. I have watched shows that I have seen before simply because watching it on THIS TV feels like I am in the studio watching the recording of the show. Depth perception is greatly enhanced, and the colors are extraordinary. No downsides. I paired this with a name brand AV receiver, and I am blown away.

                          The picture on this tv is enough to leave you breathless, I spend more time looking at the picture than I do actually paying attention to the content on the screen. For a good time watch the good dinosaur on a uhd blu-ray player, it's amazing.

                                This TV was amazing when I first received it, but I bought it for gaming reasons. Unfortunately, with a recent update Samsung screwed up the TV and it get's random color separations with no help for over 4 months. there is a huge forum with people asking for support and they are doing nothing to reverse the firmware update rendering gaming mode near useless unless you want to deal with multiple color glitches per half hour in game mode.
