    I'm not sure why this set is priced so low. The picture is brilliant, the profile is low, no glare or reflection, and the viewing angle is almost 180 degrees. I guess the only negative is the small amount of inputs, but as a part of a receiver-based system, it's perfect.

    Samsung is good quality, setup was easy, the picture is ok most of the time. CMR is definitely not a good indicator of picture quality as this is a 60hz TV. I have some issues with blacks looking blotchy in BlueRay movies and online streaming with my Apple TV. The audio changes depending on the movie/show and I am constantly adjusting the volume for the same show/movie. I have tried all of the audio settings and still have a problem finding one that is all around good (time to spring for a 5.1 surround?) If you find this unit on sale like I did (black friday), this is a good buy and a good unit for the money. I would not pay full price for this unit, I would hold out for the upgraded unit (un40eh6000). Do your research before you buy this TV. I would recommend this to people who know full and well these above issues with picture quality. This would make a great second tv for the kids or for the bedroom. I will be upgrading and using this for a second tv in the bedroom as this is for my home theater and I feel that the picture quality lacks at times to be home theater worthy.

              Purchased two of these from B&H for two of my children that are getting married, one in January and one in June of 2014. I can't rate the product because they will not be setup for a couple of weeks.

              However, I wanted to praise the price and delivery from B&H. I found the best price with free shipping from B&H placing the order on a Sunday. The TV's arrived on MONDAY afternoon. I was blown away.

                  We bought this for the bedroom and view 10ft from screen. The wife thinks it's huge, I think we could have gone bigger, so it's a happy medium. It doesn't have a swivel base but we have it on a lazy susan so it can be viewed from other vantage points. It's hooked up to a Roku as we watch Netflix a lot. There has been no problems with streaming and we are very happy with the picture quality and color.
                  I looked into getting a higher Hz refresh rate but not sure I would have noticed any difference, except in my wallet.
                  The remote lights up which is a real plus as we watch mainly in the dark.

                  only had this TV a week or so but fine picture. delivered exactly when B&H said and no issues at all with delivery, etc. I bought the extended serviceplan as I had a Samsung die just out of warranty a few years back. This should cover it for a good while.

                  easy set up, easy to do biz with B&H. I'll be back.

                    I purchased this tv for my inlaws, who were replacing their old 25 inch tube tv. They are VERY happy with it and cannot believe the difference in picture quality. It is also fairly simple for them to operate. I got it all set up for them, so all they need to do is turn it on/off. :) Very nice tv and got it for a great price from B&H.

                          The picture is fantastic. Had this TV for about 5 months and I haven't had any problems with it. I picked this TV because of the reputation Samsung has with producing excellent TVs. Also, couple of my friends had samsung TVs for a few years now and they praised how great samsung TVs are. Taking their advise, I purchased this one and I now know what they have been talking about. The only thing I regret about my purchase is that I bought the model with only two HDMI inputs. If you are considering buying this TV get the model with three HDMI inputs. You might not think you need them but for 30 or 40 extra bucks better be safe than sorry.

                          We needed an inexpensive HDTV for our control room. This fit the bill. Volume not so good but Slim TVs tend to have this problem

                            Although I'm still tweaking the settings, the picture quality on this lives up to Samsung's reputation. Excellent black levels, good contrast, saturated color that is accurate. Sound quality is typically mediocre for built in speakers, but an external amp and speakers (or soundbar) will remedy this. I could use more input connections (one more composite and one more HDMI) would be perfect, but offering is typical for this price range. In all, an excellent value for a great TV.

                              If I were to improve this product I would do two things. 1) Make the remote bigger. The buttons are all jammed into a small space making it easy to hit the wrong one. And 2) The default picture settings are not too great. They lack contrast, brightness and the whites are a little on the blue side. These, and a few other adjustments are easy to correct for. It would be nice if you could store several "user settings". The stored "default" settings are useless and I don't anticipate ever going back to those.

                              Samsung is good quality, setup was easy, the picture is ok most of the time. CMR is definitely not a good indicator of picture quality as this is a 60hz TV. I have some issues with blacks looking blotchy in BlueRay movies and online streaming with my Apple TV. The audio changes depending on the movie/show and I am constantly adjusting the volume for the same show/movie. I have tried all of the audio settings and still have a problem finding one that is all around good (time to spring for a 5.1 surround?) If you find this unit on sale like I did (black friday), this is a good buy and a good unit for the money. I would not pay full price for this unit, I would hold out for the upgraded unit (un40eh6000). Do your research before you buy this TV. I would recommend this to people who know full and well these above issues with picture quality. This would make a great second tv for the kids or for the bedroom. I will be upgrading and using this for a second tv in the bedroom as this is for my home theater and I feel that the picture quality lacks at times to be home theater worthy.
