Full Web Browser
This model features a full web browser, so you can enjoy all the benefits of full web browsing, right on your TV, from the comfort of your living room. From social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter to news, weather, entertainment, blogs and more.
Clear Motion Rate of 120
Clear Motion Rate (CMR) was developed to accurately measure how well an LCD or LED TV can depict fast-moving images. Previously, motion-clarity was calculated by the frame refresh rate alone. But CMR offers a more complete measure by calculating three factors: frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology. LED TVs with a CMR of 120 can display action-packed movement with sharp detail and vivid contrast while eliminating image distortion. This means that you'll experience sharp picture quality, even when watching fast-moving images like sports or action movies.
Eco Sensor
This TV's Eco Sensor measures the intensity of the light in the room and automatically adjusts the brightness of the image on the TV, for more intelligent energy management.
Full HD 1080p
This Samsung model supports Full HD 1920 x 1080p resolution, which ensures life-like, realistic detail and a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio for enjoying your favorite movies in their natural format.
Wide Color Enhancer Plus
Wide Color Enhancer Plus allows you to see the entire RGB spectrum brought to life on your screen. This provides vibrant, yet natural-looking images.
Built-in Wi-Fi
With Wi-Fi built right into the TV, no additional equipment is needed to connect with an existing wireless router in your home network. You can instantly stream movies and TV shows, update your Facebook, start browsing the web, use Samsung Apps right on the screen and access a host of other Smart TV features.
AllShare
Samsung's AllShare feature lets you stream and share multimedia content through your home network from any compatible device. Wirelessly enjoy movies, photos and music from your computer or other networked device - all on your large TV screen.
ConnectShare Movie
ConnectShare Movie lets you watch videos, play music or view photos from a USB connection without needing to use a PC or special equipment. Simply plug your USB memory device directly into the TV's USB port and watch on the big screen with friends and family. The USB media player supports multiple formats including AVI, ASF, MP3, JPEG and more.
Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC)
Anynet+ is an AV network system you can use to automatically control Samsung HDMI connected compatible AV devices. There is no need to use different remote controls for different devices. With Anynet+, all you need is one remote control for fast and convenient operation.
Three HDMI Connections
HDMI is a high-quality, single-cable, digital audio/video interface for connecting the TV to a digital cable box, satellite box, DVD player, Blu-ray player, computer, laptop, gaming console, tablet, smartphone or other device with an HDMI output. This TV features three HDMI inputs, so you can connect multiple devices at once.
Swivel Stand
Set up your Samsung TV perfectly with the built-in swivel stand. Samsung Swivel stands allow you to turn your TV up to 10° to the left or right to ensure you have a direct view of the TV no matter where you're sitting in the room.
Quad Stand
The innovative Quad Stand is designed specifically for your Samsung TV and provides stylish support with a unique and retro quad-leg design.
Universal Remote Control
The included remote control has universal function and can therefore operate various types of devices such as a set-top box - minimizing the amount of remote controls necessary.
Dolby Digital Plus / Pulse
Dolby Digital Plus / Pulse optimizes the TV sound quality when viewing and listening to Internet movies, Internet music and other content played back from wired or wireless mobile phones, PCs and tablet devices.
DTS Premium Sound 5.1
DTS Premium Sound 5.1 delivers immersive 5.1 surround sound from any DTS-encoded content and converts any two-channel audio content into a 5.1 DTS surround sound track for discrete surround sound playback.
DTS Premium Sound
DTS Premium Sound decodes DTS-encoded content (ex: Blu-ray, streaming media) and unlocks all discrete channels of audio data within the content for an impressive and immersive surround sound experience from the built-in audio system.
DTS 2.0 + Digital Out
DTS 2.0 advanced audio processing decodes the DTS stream, then mixes down and outputs 2-channel audio, played back via stereo speakers. Digital Out means the device can also output the DTS bitstream via digital outputs (S/PDIF or HDMI) to a receiver to decode DTS audio.
Energy Star 6.0 Qualified
Energy Star 6.0 qualification means that this TV meets strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the government. It not only meets Energy Star 6.0 requirements, it also exceeds them. This translates to more energy savings and lower utility bills, which also means that the TV will leave a smaller carbon footprint on the environment.

      I picked this for a client that I was competing for their business. Once they saw the TV in action, plus the Skype USB plugin, it was a no brainer to choose our company. Other company had a standard 120hz, nothing special, this was the TV that helped us get the bid. Great price, free shipping. A no brainer!

      I purchased this tv to replace a Sony that I was using for my xbox 360 and as a computer monitor. The Sony was nice and sharp with both but was starting to cloud after years of use. With this tv nothing is sharp or clear while using it as a monitor through the HDMI input. Wish I could return it but B&H Photo videos return policy won't allow it since it's over 37".

                I'm dumping a Sharp 42" HDTV for this model. I also have 4 other HDTVs, 3 laptops, 1 desktop, 1 tablet, 1 smart cell phone, 3 digital cameras, and a partridge in a pear tree. Too d**n much stuff.

                I use this TV mostly just as a TV (heel of hand to teeth), not the smart stuff, for my home office.
                The pros: It has many, many features.
                The cons: It has many, many features.

                Seriously, the picture is great (isn't that what it's all about?). I've worked through the multitude of controls and found them user friendly.

                The picture quality is excellent,and the dedicated Netflix and Amazon video buttons on the remote are handy....I'm a cable cord cutter so mostly use streaming services.Lots of Samsung apps are available with most of them being free.The web browser is passable for light duty,but using the onscreen pointer to navigate and the remote to type can be extremely tedious.Setup was very fast.It found my wireless network quickly and setup from start to finish was less than 5 minutes.If it had come packaged with a small wireless keyboard containing a touchpad to navigate I would have given 5 stars.

                          I did my research, and it definitely paid off. I am really happy with this TV. It's a good size (I'm not a fan of TVs as big as a wall), and the picture is great. It's an attractive design, and I like the legs and the height of the screen. It was fairly easy to set up. The only drawback is that, even with the sound playing through a receiver, the max volume setting is not very loud. I don't have TV reception and only use the television to watch Netflix; so this may be the reason the sound is limited. I do agree with other reviews I've read, that the remote control is a bit of a disappointment as it is only backlit in short bursts when you press the backlight button. As always, B&H had the best price plus free shipping, and I know they always stand behind their products. I also bought the SquareTrade 3 Year Protection Plan, which seemed to be a reasonable price.

                            I purchased this tv to replace a Sony that I was using for my xbox 360 and as a computer monitor. The Sony was nice and sharp with both but was starting to cloud after years of use. With this tv nothing is sharp or clear while using it as a monitor through the HDMI input. Wish I could return it but B&H Photo videos return policy won't allow it since it's over 37".

                            Very nice looking TV. I don't have cable or a broadcast antenna so I just use it for streaming Amazon Prime and DLNA from my laptop/phone, which it does really well.
                            Remote is very basic. All smart TVs should have remotes with a full keyboard.
                            Was a little disappointed to see that the price dropped $40 a day after I bought it, though...

                            I picked this for a client that I was competing for their business. Once they saw the TV in action, plus the Skype USB plugin, it was a no brainer to choose our company. Other company had a standard 120hz, nothing special, this was the TV that helped us get the bid. Great price, free shipping. A no brainer!

                            Great picture, and lots of nice features, such as Netflix and internet browsing built in. Just what we needed.
