Best Buy Review by DisplacedLobo
Awesome TV - Great Price
Is this the newest, fanciest with all the latest technology and gadgets? Nope, but that is not what I was looking to get. If you are looking to stay with something proven, not on the leading edge of technology NOR on the leading edge of price (YEAH), this is a superb choice.
It is a size upgrade for us from a 46" Samsung purchased about 5 years ago (still working perfectly I should add). It was just time to have something a little bigger in the living room, but not something so big the whole room was overpowered. This is a great size in an average size living room, looks like it should be there.
The overall look of the TV with the simple stand is excellent. My wife is very happy with the sleekness and the footprint, it makes the whole area look cleaner.
The picture is real good, wait no, the picture is super good. Bright, clear, sharp, oh yes very nice. I’m really impressed with the installed speakers, no need to always use the Bose just to hear regular old TV shows.
The wifi works like a charm, my wife connected her phone watching youtube just last night. Things have come a long ways since my last TV purchase.
I did read reviews of this before making my purchase, the biggest complaints I saw were concerning the small simple remote. I’ve got no problem at all with the little remote with so few buttons. 1) my direct TV remote is in control most of the time. When needed to access something other than just TV, the small remote works well with the menu. Maybe I don’t use every feature on the TV possible, but so far I’m happy with the menu and access through that remote.
Yes of course there is room for improvement and maybe all this already exists on newer models, but you are reading about this model. After connecting wifi youtube between her phone and the TV, the menu across the bottom wouldn’t go away until I found the little remote and clicked it off. Not sure why that menu won’t just drop off the screen after say 10 seconds of no use?
Another area for improvement would be cord management. I used a bread bag twist tie to bring the cords together and center them so they are hidden by the stand. Would it really be so hard to put a small bracket or something on the back to keep the cords hidden?
Overall I’m very happy, this has been a great purchase, if it is as reliable and durable as the last Samsung I bought, you can bet my next TV purchase will also be Samsung. No, I don’t work for them, but hey if they have anything they need tested, just look me up
