" ...  We have Uverse and the picture is spectacular.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The TV is worth every penny but to get the picture just right it does take a few tries with the settings as the factory settings aren't the best imo.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The picture is so sharp and full of detail, we can see everyone's lines and wrinkles .  ...  "
comment
" ...  The picture is breathtaking.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Above all, the picture quality is really the reason we purchased the TV in the first place.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Out of the box the TV has a great picture. ... The magic of this TV is the "HDR 10+" feature which is not enabled by default so please enable in Settings-Picture-Expert Settings.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Now that I’ve had the TV for a week, I’ve been most impressed with the QLED’s picture quality. ... It actually took me a few days to get used to the sharpness of the picture. ... So now, when I turn on my PlayStation the TV automatically turns on game mode and adjusts the color and sharpness of the picture.  ...  "

" ...  Upgrade from my 65" Samsung Curve UHD - Unbelievable Picture - Massive Size - Just buy it!  ...  "

comment
" ...  4K and Gaming look amazing.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Right out of the box the 55” QLED 4K UHD 8 series set up was a breeze. ... The 4k UHD picture quality is much better than anything I have owned before. ... I stream most of my TV viewing and the speed and picture quality far exceeds my experience and expectations. ... Netflix offers an upgrade to Ultra HD but the differences are clear without paying the additional fees.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I visited a big box store before buying here to see and compare TV's in person and to learn about 4K TV's. ... They had it mounted right next to another Samsung 4K model but one without the back lighting feature and the differences were so clear I immediately scratched any edge lighting models from my possible choices.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a upper tier 4K TV.  ...  "

" ...  The OLED TVs looked nice, but this TV looked even nicer. ... This tv was also significantly less expensive than comparable OLED TVs from big name manufacturers. ... Our old 50” tv was fine for that until I got a PS4 and found I couldn’t read the screen.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The fald panel remains near oled black with significantly superior brightness in areas that matter most! ... It beats oled due to pure shadow detail and highlight brightness.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Furthermore, I am used to a black bezel framing my TVs and this model has a silver frame, a small detail I am sure I will get used to.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Once enabled, viewing was enhanced especially in dark scenes.  ...  "
comment
" ...  This tv has an excellent picture probably the best i ever seen more than oled, the menu can be a little complicated deepening on what you like to do, by default it will detect your gaming console and pc as gaming but i recommend for gaming using the freesync feature if you have a amd card or xbox one x.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I mounted this TV in the living room at my cabin (bright, constant sun) so the anti reflective screen (ultra black elite) is a bonus because the color automatically corrects to filter out the shadows.  ...  "
comment
" ...  For the money I paid I'm not accepting the bottom half of the TV screen with multiple dead pixels.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I had compared the OLED and QLED TV's and the difference was indiscernible.  ...  "

" ...  The TV basically initialized and set up itself instantaneously. ... There are a multitude of content applications (Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO ON etc) that simply required user sign in. ... I was particularly impressed with the speed of both simply turning on the TV and the quick activation of the applications. ... It seems immediate whereas my previous smart TV took some time to power on and begin running applications. ... The availability of various apps put all of my streaming sources into one place for access. ... I set my favorites and now read the morning news on the browser on the TV instead of my phone.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The set-up was extremely easy, except don't bother downloading the Smart Things app, I still haven't figured out why it prompted me to do it. ... I was able to quickly log into all of my streaming accounts in a matter of a couple minutes, though.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It automatically connected to my home network and guided me through a few steps to get our Netflix, Prime TV, HULU and YouTube set up. ... I haven’t used the app yet but excited for the option.  ...  "

" ...  If you connect to a home theater receiver with HDMI ARC, when you use an app on the TV say netflix and then switch to Apple TV connected to the home theater receiver, 9 out of 10 times the HDMI ARC port will shut itself out. ... The way i plan to solve this is by upgrading my Apple TV to 4K and forget about using any apps on the Samsung TV.  ...  "
