"Every movie looks like handycome home movie."2.5 starson by dkzzzz
Pros: Excellent picture for News and Documentaries
Cons: Horrible, foggy SD channel performance with no possibility of correction through tuning. 120HZ runs no matter what options you have turned off. All movies look like amaterur home movies because of artificial 120HZ frame rate.
Summary: Listed problems are not specific to Samsung or this model. Never again will I buy any idiotic HDTVs until manufacturers include proper "Movie" mode that would allow for movies to look "normal" and not like cheap sitcoms. Also SD channels never looked that bad. Considering that 50%+ of TV channles are still SD this TV is useless irritation. It is only suitable if you only watch HD programming and watch Blu-ray movies , because everything else will look like garbage.Glossy screen (like on cheap Laptops) reflects everything in light or dark room. Dark scenes look bad, no detail just black spots. Lately TV started fluctuate the contrast by itself . It took me an hour to find that feature and turn it off. While watching DVDs black frame oscillates. Poor remote design ,needs to be pointed at transmitter precisely else it does not work. Prominent light bleeding in the corners of the screen. Buggy Netflix app .
