Rated 5 out of 5 byMovieFun from Basically satisfiedThis tv works pretty well although we found the sound cutting out on us when we plugged our sound bar into the tv, After much trial and error, we eventually learned we had to circumvent the tv speakers and wire everything through our cable system. Now the sound is great. The picture is very good too, although sometimes it randomly dims and brightens.

Rated 5 out of 5 byTheNavywife from June 2017 Model -This is my initial basic review-I will follow-up in a week or twoI couldn't find a single review on this tv prior to decision to purchase. I want to share a few basics for others that may be considering this tv.The screen is too dark. Very 'black'? I suppose there is a way to calibrate it but that is to be determined- soon. The sound is sufficient for the size of our living room and I don't feel the need for a soundbar. Picture is definitely crisp and clean/sharp. A step above our LCD TV that is nearly 10 years old and our LCD TV that is a couple of years older than that one. We considered 4k but standing in the store, side by side - this tv actually appealed to us - visually. We have no regrets at this point. I will update my experience with this TV in a couple of weeks. It is actually very easy to set up. You will be asked to log in to your Samsung account and fortunately we already have a Samsung acct due to the S8 phones that we purchased a week after Easter Sunday. For the price that we paid for this TV I am quite satisfied overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 byMakalena from Excellent construction. Made it through a 6.9 earthquake without toppling!We love our new TV. We had bought the exact model 2 weeks before, and after 10 days, it became very disobedient. Since it was making strange noises, we turned it off, but it kept turning itself on again, proclaiming “Smart TV”. It was too smart for us, so we returned it. But it did not keep us from buying the exact model again, and we are loving it! It has great picture and sound, and made it through a 6.9 earthquake unscathed!

Rated 5 out of 5 byTerpMan from It is not possible to mount this TV on a WallSamsung decided to require an unusual screw to mount to the back of this TV, and then was to cheap to add the $4 worth of screws needed to attach to the flimsy plastic on the back of this TV. Most M4 screws are 10 mm in length. This TV requires a M4 screw that is p, get this, between 20.9 and 21.9 mm long. Try to find those anywhere. Totally disgusted with Samsung and BestBuy.

Rated 5 out of 5 bysr software engineer from Nice picture, but the apps barely workOn the positive side, the picture is very good. On the negative side, not only is the smart TV functionality poorly designed, many of the apps have trouble loading and then freeze within a couple of hours. These issues occur almost on a daily basis. It's a good TV if you don't want a smart TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 bymelzy from Excellent productI have had my Samsung 50 inch Smart TV for seven months now, and it has not failed me yet. Over all this is a great product, with minimal problems. My overall rating for this product would be 4 stars. I highly recommend this product. Not only has it proven to be sufficient for my needs, but has surprised me by its impressive features. One of my favorite features is that this TV has the ability to connect and share movies, and to do screen mirroring. This means you can display what you watch on your smart phone, or electronic device. There is also a wide color enhancer, which helps to give the TV display a bright and vibrant color. In addition to vibrant color, the 1080 p LED- LCD - high definition gives the TV screen a realistic, and clear look. The TV itself is moderately large and surprisingly does not weigh much, and is just the right size for an average size room or living room area. Other features that this TV has are numerous ports for consoles, or TV add on connections. Some of these are AV input ports, two HDMI ports, one USB port, and a few others. The only problems that I have had with this TV is that the apps are limited. The smart TV programs target more towards big name apps such as Netflix and YouTube, some lesser known such as Crackle do not responded well. Another problem, not being the TV itself but its accessory (the stand) is that it is a little stiff and odd shaped, making it difficult to adjust certain ways. Lastly the sound, though it has a great built in speaker, do not expect to have movie theater quality, it’s an average speaker, for your everyday use. Though, it does get loud, a sound bar is recommended for an enhanced experience; preferably by Samsung for better compatibility, but that’s just a suggestion.

Rated 5 out of 5 byTrillium from HDMI ARC port has gone out after three monthsI was using the ARC connection for my new Samsung sound bar. The sound was great for a couple weeks, then suddenly, no sound. Tried my old soundbar and had the same problem. Tried a new cable for both, same problem. Using the optical I hear all imperfections, like pauses (1/100th second blip) from satellite TV and internet streaming. This makes me crazy. I haven’t called Samsung yet, but sounds like it won’t help.

Rated 5 out of 5 bycarlfranklin from Required a Firmware Update Right Out of the BoxBought August 2017, would not select external DVD connected on either HDMI2 or Component Input. The DVD was recognized by Setup as a valid input, along with the cable TV box, but could not be selected with the remote after Setup was complete. The user site seniors home had no Wifi or wired internet so I could not update firmware until my son came along and configured his phone as a Wifi hotspot. A half hour download later he had new firmware installed and the external device was recognized and could be selected with the remote. Now we are working on the Autosize issue, the picture will not fill the screen automatically, even though we have tried all the Picture options. We have had to use the manual Zoom option to fill the screen, but that cuts off the video on some channels. Hope the next firmware fixes that, but I have to bring the unit in to the city to hook up to my system to upgrade, and that's just a pain. This unit was bought to replace a cratered 32 LCD that autosized just fine with the same cable box, so that's not the issue, and there are just not many 32 1080P units out there to choose from. Other than that, it's a nice unit and really nice picture quality.

I love the Samsung smart TV's mostly because they have good picture and are compatible with my phone. My old TV had a lot of App options, this one is VERY limited. I hope they do an update soon to add more apps. I stuck with them because of my old TV was great, but now there's little workout apps and they seem to cater to the big stream movie apps now. And both TVs kick off of the WIFI randomly and don't automatically sign into my Samsung account, it's really annoying to set up each time!

Rated 5 out of 5 bytravlr08 from Great picture but...I seem to need to constantly be resetting the internet connection when wanting to view Netflix or Amazon Prime through the TV apps, yet all other devices don't need to be reset. Also when watching through a DVD player/recorder, it's very difficult to set a good view on the screen... that is the picture always looks like small wide screen format. There are few options to change that to see a proper view.The picture is fantastic as indicated in other reviews. The speakers are a little tinny. I have liked my Samsung phones in the past, just a little disappointed in the TV unfortunately.

Rated 5 out of 5 byToshtego from Talking Tin CanThis unit has a very nice picture considering the price. Crisp, even with non HD programs. Old B&W movies are like an Ansel Adams photo. Then there is the sound... reminds me of two tin cans connected by a string. Horrible sound. No equalizer for modification. So, I will be using the audio output RCA jacks to an amplifier and two external speakers. Better yet, the full surround sound system. The unit is affordable enough that adding an external sound system is not much of a burden. They got the main part right- THE PICTURE!

Rated 5 out of 5 bytlwright21 from Horrible TV dead in 3 daysgot on a Tuesday. First thing I noticed was there was zero ability to watch from any angle, otherwise the whole picture started whitewashing out. You literally had to be sitting exactly straight on facing the tv. 5 degrees either way and it started losing color. Well by the 3rd day the picture started going black. So it didn't really matter where you sat. the whole screen took on a dark smokey hazy look. could barely see anything. so it just got returned. will I buy another Samsung . doubtful.

Rated 5 out of 5 byOilersfan from Xtra Clear Pic - Rich Sound for Built-In TV SpeakersAs a snowbird, bought this TV after being frustrated by the 32”Vizio (no complaints just SMALL) sitting in a cabinet that now holds the 43” Class M5300 Full HD TV. This is the 5th Samsung that we’ve owned; we have two 56” units @ home in Canada. This pic seems brighter with heightened clairity - we are going to love it for the next two months then leave it with a friend until we return next year. One frustrating knock on this unit - it did not come with the correct sized screws needed to attach the base to the TV plus the snap in tab on the base designed to help stabilize the TV snapped off in the assembly process. A little more attention to detail here I think plus someone at the factory needs to know that throwing in bogus screws is NOT fine!

Rated 5 out of 5 bysmmck from Great Picture, Terrible AudioThis TV has an awesome picture but I should have believed the reviews about the audio sound. I bought this (7/18) for my bedroom on which I mostly watch News shows in the morning. The audio has a terrible vibration that is so annoying. I'm not talking about vibration from bass in movies or music rather from just news commentators speaking! Have tried adjusting through controls (sound equalizer) and having Samsung customer service adjust via remote control. Was told my only option is to take into an authorized service center since only 40" or above has in house service covered under warranty. Well the service center is too far away and I speculated this is not a repairable problem so I have decided to get an inexpensive sound bar instead. So factor that into your decision/budget when buying this TV. The good thing is that the TV has both HDMI and Optical cable outlets which are the best for sound bars.

You have to take the entire TV apart and know how to solder LED’s to fix it. So unless you just want a disposable TV I would not buy it. I strongly suggest you read other online reviews outside of Samsung.com

Rated 5 out of 5 bymattaj24 from Great TVOverall, this is a great TV and the first TV I have ever seen at 32" with 1080p AND two HDMI inputs. The one thing that would have made this TV PERFECT would be a center swivel stand instead of two feet. The two feet make it hard to move or place on a small table. I would love to be able to place this on a small table and swivel it to where I would like it to face. Will have to buy a separate VESA mount to achieve this. Not ideal, but a good TV besides that.
