4 samsungs in our house
We have 4 samsung tv's in our house - 3 series 6 (one of them UHD the other 2 just HD) and one is an older series that offered 3d (never even opened the glasses - what a crock!). Anyway... I am on the hunt for another tv to replace the oldest of the samsungs because it's "smart" version is too old to support netflix. We purchased a samsung thumb drive to get it to connect to the internet wirelessly and oh my god it it so slow and so laggy its apalling. We find that the 3 newer series 6 models are all SOOO SLOW to change the volume, connect t...o netflix, stan, change channels even when watching free to air. Really, the changing of the tv's volume (to low when you turn it on in the mornings) is the biggest bugbear. There is so much lag it's totally infuriating - the most expensive UHD tv is the worst! If someone turns on the tv in the morning we are all blasted by the loud volume it was set to the night before as the volume button is so laggy and unresponsive, it could be 10 seconds until we can get the volume down - yes the tv is hardwired to the internet and yes we have NBN. I think the processors in the samsung tv's are not up to the job - dont sell a big juicy bells and whistles tv without processors to run them Samsung!!! Oh, and an interesting thing - we all agree that the best picture in the house is on the big HD samsung - it beats the UHD considerably. Go figure. Figuring out how to record a show or playback something recirded on a thumb drive is very confusing and convuluted so we have given up. Samsung only supports PC and we are a mMac household - also another stupid annoying thing. Samsung you are obviously a PC company so please think outside the lines here. Lastly, we bought a Samsung soundbar for the big UHD tv and the sound on all settings is so muffly we have stopped using it. What a total waste of money.
Purchased for A$2,000.00.
ABSOLUTELY TOTAL WORTH!
Being a smart TV and totally in sync with the brand Samsung's quality, the TV is complete worth the penny. NO complains bought it over 1.5 years now. Working fine with crisp and clear UHD pic quality and sound that pretty much gel effortlessly with each other.
It’s a great Tv, we hav had it for over a year now, and cant be better that this. We have purchased it from Harvy Norman, great service and good communication
Could do with a better remote and e-manual
The TV is great but In its efforts to create a smaller, minimum buttons remote Samsung have lost usability.
If you are watching from a USB and you want to toggle subtitles you cannot with one button; you have to push down then right 5 times then select then enter 3 times then up or down then right then enter! Ridiculous.
The use of the coloured buttons is not explained in any detailed way. They don't seem to be programmable (for a subtitle toggle for example).
Can't these issues this be fixed with a software update?
Purchased in June 2016 for A$990.00.

Good pic but...
Smart Tv. Good pic, very light. Prob is it lags when changing channels. Takes time to update the title of the show. Slow software. Seems sound can be weak. Use with sound bar.
Purchased in May 2018.
Samsung Smart TV is brilliant. Quality picture with great clarity. Apps are easy to add and easy to find on the pop up menu.
The TV has superb sound and movie viewing from many angles.
The internet connectivity is good and it updates easily wirelessly.
The ports however once wall mounted are near impossible to use - had to get hubby to lift it off to use the AV port but once leads are in no need to worry. Netflix and Google play are easily accessed and utilised from the pop up favorites menu. All in all a brilliant TV

Horizontal lines on left edge
Bought in June 2017, the tv has now developed a vertical band on the left edge with distorted picture and horizontal lines in it. Banding is on the left edge only and is present in all inputs
Warranty is for 12 months and it has been only 5 months out of warranty and has developed a major fault. Have tried factory reset and all other options but the banding won't go away
... not happy samsung
Big tvs are great
The tv is great it has voice control all though I don’t use it much!
The controller is easy and all my apps are in one place it run multiple USB devises at a time!
Smart tv’s have come along way with direct access to
U tube and Netflix!
The coulours are just stunning and graphics is great there isn’t much to love about the Samsung
Won't connect to internet
The image quality is very good. Unfortunately, the smart TV feature does not work due to connection problem with the internet. The error keeps coming up which says that TV Mac address is invalid. The TV won't even attempt to search for any wifi network. It also won't connect to wired network. Software can't be upgraded, since it's only possible to do that via internet. This is a known issue widely reported on line which users seem to be unable to solve.
Perfect Tv, Super simple user interface. voice over is a bit of a pain and took me a while to figure out how to turn it off but 10/10 all round. Picture is insane, remote is small and simple easy to use.love the sleek design with a good solid footing.
best picture quality
The picture quality is fantastic, the sound is brilliant, also the size. It looks great in HD if put in the right setting. I am impressed with Samsung overall and particularly with this set. The colour is good, the controls easy to use and the extras that you get make it a worthwhile purchase. The tv was not the cheapest tv but it worths the price as they give you what you paid for
Good tv for the $$
Good specs and works well with decent sound and hd picture quality. Smart tv functions are simple to use. Best value under $2k. Have purchased a few tvs prior and never had any problems with Samsung products. Purchased from Radio Rentals and includes free delivery and provides great advice from the sales person
Series 6 MU6100
Samsung TVs has a slim bezel design and a slim body. When you turn on the TV and feel the shocking Picture it brings, you can really see the compelling side of it. , and cleverly hidden, coupled with Samsung's unique seamless wall-mounted design, means that any location in the home is a very concise existence, more than any previous model is more like the home of a piece of art! I am also very satisfied with the performance of the operation, the overall is a very good product
