Out of 297 customers who purchased this television, the rating is at 4.4 stars out of 5. I have not used this item, but if I were to own a gaming system and watch live sports, I am sure to purchase this one.
The comments from customers who bought this item were being stated in saying, “All of my friends said its the best picture they’ve ever seen and I would have to agree with them. The picture quality is simply amazing, Super fast response times for video games, all of the smart Apps I have used worked great (HBO GO, Netflix, Amazon prime video), I play FIFA 15 on my Xbox One and it plays amazing. No stuttering at all!”
Another reviewer stated this product in saying, “I have been a loyal Samsung customer for the last eight years for several reasons. So far, they have demonstrated excellent reliability and build quality across several of their product lines, including not just TVs, but also with their Blu-ray players, cell phones, accessories, headphones, etc. Even when I did have a minor issue with another TV (2010 Samsung plasma HDTV), they happily sent out an excellent and courteous repair tech to my house, even though the TV was slightly out of warranty!
As for negative reviews (drawbacks) to this product, there weren’t many. Most of the negative comments dealt with the audio and the television “rebooting” itself. However, there were other customers who offered suggestions like “disabling Dolby 5.1 for PCM in the satellite box completely” if a customer is subscribed to using a satellite dish from DirectTV. Another customer’s comment for solving the problem in saying, “Turn off the ECO mode” where there has been no issues with reboots ever since.
I hope I have convince you in making this kind of television to have in your gameroom when you are watching live sporting events, movies, shows, playing video games, etc. Also I hope you share this post on social media if you like reading it.

Hey Armand, great product review. I currently own 2 LG Televisions and love them but they have become dated.
With technology constantly improving and my gaming needs constantly increasing a tv like this would satisfy this need.
Of course, Samsung is a market leader, so purchasing this item is made fairly easy by reputation.
How fabulous do curved tv’s look with the PS4 is what I’m wondering? Great Article!
Hi Patrick! Thanks for the comment. I feel that you are right as technology advances, so do the hardware. It can become difficult to keep up purchasing devices, let alone television sets to keep up with the times.
To answer your question of how a curved television would look with the PS4, I would state that it would look FABULOUS as the animation looks smooth and the gameplay would make it that much more exciting. I hope this helps.
This is a truly amazing TV to enjoy watching in your living room.
There’s been a noticeable increase in 4K TV’s, which is awesome since the prices started dropping.
How does this compare to some of LG’s OLED 4K TV’s? I heard that they’re the best in the business in terms of quality and colors.
Hi Julius! Thanks so much for the comment regarding this television set. As to answer your question about the difference between the television sets, the LG OLED is slightly better as it shows the true black while watching a dark scene such as a movie or television show (ie: outer space/night sky). The reason why I chose this television set is because of the price. The LG sets are around $4000 more compared to this television set. I hope this helps. If you have anymore questions, feel free and send a reply to this, and I’ll respond back. Thanks for stopping by.
I viewed your website. I liked playiong pool and watching TV. When I used to play pool I used to call pockets. I love a challenge. I hate being lucky. I like to win fair and square.
I love big screen TVs. I love watching the game on TV. I love basketball and football.
Thanks for commenting. Winning streaks do happen when playing the game of pool. On the flip side, so does losing. However, losing does happen to me much more than winning which is a complete bummer. I hope you like this big screen tv and let’s do get a game sometime of regular pool (8-ball) what do you say?
I used to love to play pool. It’s a fun game.
You did? I feel pool to be a very fun game to play. Though, I’m not a pro at playing it. I was thinking how about we play a game?
