Great, except broken in less than 8 hours

Bought the tv with mount and geek squad install. Geek squad came out a little under a week later with TV and set it up. They did a great job and I didn't have to lift a finger. TV looks amazing... great with Netflix, HDTV, and sports. Inputs worked well with mount and easy to access. Everything worked great, than 8 or so hour later the TV just shut off and wouldn't turn back on... very frustrating to spend that kind of money and have to now call them back tomorrow. Guess we will see how they handle it and adjust the review accordingly

Very limited apps available

As samsung is using its own tizen OS only a handful of apps are available so use of this TV as a smart TV is very limited

  • from Surrey, BC

Not so smart TV compared to other brands

I didn’t know that in 2016 Samsung decided to use its own Tizen platform instead of android. As a result, now you only have handful of apps available on Samsung TVs coz most of the app developers' don’t wanna spend time and money to redevelop there apps just for Samsung. So smartness of this TV is quite limited. … Just Netflix and other standard apps etc. This is not a smart TV it’s a Dumb TV compared to Sony. Sony still uses android for a reason. Curve is just a gimmick and it’s so called smart remote is so frustrating to use. It also keeps disconnecting from wifi for no reason

2nd TV I have to return.

Horrible backlight bleeding. I've since returned the TV for another model and the 2nd one was worse. WTF Samsung? I see bright spots all over the TV if the image gets a little but dark. There's also a dead pixel in the top left corner, and a hair stuck behind the LCD in the middle.

  • from Ottawa

Gorgeous picture.

Very happy with the tv. Purchased jan 2017. Connected immediately to wifi, very nice user interface and simple remote. Overall I think the curve is a bit of a gimmick as it doesn't really add much to the viewing experience so you may be paying a bit more for it but otherwise awesome so far. Let's hope it's as reliable as my 25 year old Mitsubishi!

This is my second Samsung TV and I have to say that Samsung have done well with the faster processor and streamlined GUI ! The 4K upscaling works amazingly well and makes everything very lifelike. I was actually blown away with the quality of the picture. The remote is small with minimal buttons and seamlessly controls my satellite receiver through the onscreen GUI. I saw some negative reviews on the remote but can't understand why? Also the Bluetooth connectivity is great for wireless headsets which I use often. I was hesitant to purchase a new TV but I couldn't resist the boxing week sale and I am happy I did because this TV is a pleasure to watch. I also added LED bias lighting to the back of my set which I highly recommend as it keeps your eyes from getting tired from changing light levels and also increases picture quality as a result. My wife asked me to do the same with our other TV's . That being said I knew it was a worthwhile thing to do if she liked it ! Lastly, the apps work very well such as YouTube and the weather network. I am able to stream videos with amazing quality. The apps don't look cheesy and have a polished look to them.

Bestbuy sold me a returned and broken curved 55 4k tv

i bought this model on boxing day. when i opened it back home, i was shocked to find that the left upper corner seemed to have been broken inside so there is a huge crack as large as five inches in height and 3 inches in length. no image showed up in that area as result, and it seems something was seriously damaged inside because the color started to fade into grayish darkness spanning from middle to the left. i was so shocked and angry. it looks like they have sold me a returned and broken product, without giving me any warnings. i have bought at least 5 tvs in the past, and i have not seen anything like this before. there is zero qc at bestbuy. i have never seen a broken tv as this one before, but bestbuy marketed it as a new one. so irresponsible. I only found the defects after it is assembled and turned on, and now i have to repackage all to get a refund, which is total waste of time, and i am not sure Bestbuy will blame me for breaking the tv. i would hesitate to buy from bestbuy any products in the future. i would give it negative grade if it allows me, but obviously they dont.... too bad,i am forced to rate it at least 1 star, which is absolutely ridiculous.....

This TV does not seem to be 3D capable. I will just have to keep the one I have for a while longer. Thanks.

Great TV for the sale price. I got a curved soundbar and mount as well as installation and Geek Squad was amazing. Would highly recommend this TV to anyone!

  • from North Bay, ON

waiting to hook up to 4K receiver but even great clarity on fibre op network, will let you know how it is once I hook up 4K

Worth it

I had purchased a 49" version of this product and decided to upsize when it went on sale. The first television I purchased came smashed upon unpacking, so I'm on my second set after returning the first. So far, the picture and sound quality are as reliable as on the smaller version I had before. I did have to purchase a Samsung soundbar in order to experience the full potential of the audio component; otherwise, very happy with it.

Bad Motion/Upscaling, Great Still Images/Contrast!

Note that this review is for the 6500 however most of the KU6000, and KU7000 series share similar specs and technologies and you can likely base your purchasing decisions on information contained herein. I thought for sure this TV was going to be the one for us! The images shown in the store looked great, and 4k Youtube videos with sample footage looked amazing as well! However, even when playing 4k source the TV handled motion extremely poorly. (Even with the special motion features turned off) Even characters moving their hands quickly, or birds flapping their wings created ghosting and image trails. Likely due to the low ~20.4 ms refresh rate. Still images/ landscapes with less motion still looked great. The only weak-point was the 4k upscaling! Realistically most people will still be watching 1080p or lower content until 4k catches up. This TV did a really poor job of up-scaling the 1080p content. Movies looked better viewed on my computer than on the TV. (whether streamed or played directly from USB drive) The Sound quality was sufficient. (No one really buys TV's for their sound quality and this delivered what was expected without anything to write home about.) The contrast ratio was really good! Blacks are deep and colors vibrant especially in HDR Content. The Tizen interface is actually really intuitive and a joy to use for the most part. (Though I did managed to get it to lock up after issuing commands too quickly) Overall if you only plan to view 4k stock footage, or soap opera/dramas I think most people will find this TV to be an upgrade. However, if you watch action movies or anything with motion. (Or want to view your collection of 1080p Content) You are better off investing in the upgraded Samsung KS8000 series or trying a different brand. Ultimately the TV was returned.

After I purchased, I realized it wasn't good for sports, there was lag and ghosting. Turns out it is only 60 hertz native panel. Contrast is good but wish I went with another tv.

Great TV, lousy remote.

Amazing TV but the remote doesn't compare to the TV. The remote is very small and the up, down, left, right ring is too close to the centre accept button. This is especially annoying when entering things like URLs and anything that needs the onscreen keyboard.
