Record one channel; watch another?


Great TV., Picture and sound both very good. Once I had purchased a manual remote all good. The fancy voice recognition remote did not work for us.
BUT: how do I watch one channel and record another?
Thanks. Don

White Dots appear on my Samsung TV


I purchased a 55 inch Samsung TV in Dec 2014 picture quality is great however I now have 2 bright white dots appearing on the screen. Have called Samsung & they have advised that whilst we can have the TV looked at it will be at our cost as the TV is outside of warranty period. Similar other threads on-line suggest that this isn’t an isolated issue.

Awesome Quality TV


Really impressed with the quality in this series.

I bought this for the spare room after buying a 55'Samsung a few weeks ago.

Samsung certainly make a quality TV and I think it's worth the extra you might pay.

Easy to setup and great picture and I don't need a sound bar for this TV, which seems a rarity these days.
Love the bluetooth audio and again the setup is so smooth and trouble free.

Nice quality screen but fiddly remote


Received this Samsung 43" TV as a Xmas present. Pros: has great picture quality & sound; easy to watch Youtube/Netflix etc. Cons: screen size little small; remote very tiny making it fiddly to operate.

Excellent picture quality


Excellent picture quality, light, thin and easy to assemble. Has a small remote. So small infact that you will think it is missing from the package when you purchase it. The apps work great and it comes preloaded with most. The only thing mine didn't have is the seven app.

Could be better


I recently bought a Samsung 32"smart TV to replace a 37 year old NEC 68cm CRT.
The picture quality is ok with plenty of ways to improve it. However the zoom feature in the picture menu is greyed out and I have no idea how to make it work. I have wide screen DVD's that have black bar top and bottom and I want to use the zoom feature to get rid of the bars but I have no idea how to.
Sound is average although my Mac PC's sound is a whole lot better. A separate theater sound system may need to be bought to improve the sound.
The TV has two USB ports. Two HDMI ports plus the standard red, white and yellow RCA sockets.
Connecting to the internet of this "smart" TV was a breeze and there are many apps to choose from.

Almost perfect


There are a lot of things to like about this tv. It has a lovely sleek design, good sound quality, and "smart" options that allow me to open internet pages through the tv. I like to play youtube music through the tv because I don't have a radio and my only other option is to play music through my laptop. Therein lies the issue because I can't always get youtube to open, sometimes I have try opening it several times before it will work and I feel discouraged from using it. Perhaps I'm not using it correctly, or perhaps the design isn't intuitive enough. Either way it's minus 1 star for that reason.

Hooray! Samsung! We love it!!


I’ve purcharsed Samsung HD 65” last month from Bing Lee. I found it is excellent for a house with kids. The kids loved the big screen!
The picture quality was good and also the speaker was high quality.
It had HDMI at the back side so we need to put the cable before we put the tv on the wall.
Overall it looks great and we absolutely love it!

Gets the job done


Basic setup. If you are looking for a basic tv that does what its suppose to then this is it. There three HDMI ports and it a smart TV and plenty of apps and you can down load more if needed. Yes it got Youtube not like my favorite Sony ...If you got a Samsung S7 edge you can mirror and watch or look at your photos on the big screen!

Great TV for the price


My Samsung TV has never let me down. The quality of the picture is top notch and the in built speakers are of high quality. Ideally a sound bar connected is the best setup for the ultimate experience however the connected speakers do a good job. The smart TV works well too however the controls can be a bit finicky for older people.

Amazing sound!!!


The picture quality on this TV is crystal clear! The speakers...phenomenal. The sound is just outstanding and definitely the best I've ever heard on any TV I've owned. It has 3 HDMI ports and 2 usb ports which are super useful. The apps and features it offers are out of this world.

The picture quality is top-notch, there is no doubt about it. The sound quality from the speakers you will find no glaring criticism for. With enough ports for HDMI, and even USB sticks, being a smart TV of course, allows for more options.

Its operation system, however, is slow to start, and even crashes from time to time which is disappointing.
