Used the dual arm monitor to achieve a more practical solution for the two monitors (24") which sit on my desk. Construction quality was good, all the movement was good and very easy to install.
Bought this at Best Buy with recommendation of salesman. He also suggested a soundbar with it, which we bought. The only problem we have had is getting the soundbar to work with it. The soundbar hides the on/off red light button on the television. Thus we thought we needed to use both remotes to operate them. After much time spent trying to find the problem, we discovered the light was covered up by the soundbar. So it was not getting the signal. If we lower the soundbar, then you can see all the cords that attach to the tv. We will have to find a solution to this.
I wanted to give this TV a great review, but I cannot. Whenever you go to Netflix and get back out, you will lose the signal source and must go through the set-up steps to get the signal back. Samsung has admitted this is a known problem and are working on a solution. Another issue is with the universal remote and how it controls the TV versus the set-top-box. Whenever you turn the power off for the TV, the STB will power off as well. There is a seperate button for STB power on the remote, so you would assume that only that button would control the STB power. That is not the case. Samsung states that this is normal functionality of the remote, but I don't want to kill the STB when I power off the TV. This stops my DVR from recording. The picture is great, but I expect that from Samsung since I have several Samsung TV's already. This is my first Smart TV and I have had this model for less than 24 hours, however, and I am less than pleased with it so far.
I finally broke down and put a 65" 4K in my bedroom. The setup was very easy and the picture is beautiful. I will calibrate eventually, but even out of the box this TV looks awesome. The SmartTV functionality has come a long way. I use Apple TV's on all of my Samsungs because typically the SmartTV functionality is pretty slow. Those days are gone. The Smart functionality is fast and effective. Impressive to be honest. The remote control, while basic is fully functional and smart. It easily identified my sources by the HDMI input and set them up automatically. I was equally impressed that control of my AppleTV was seamless. I use a Universal Remote for my bedroom, but not sure I really need it since the Samsung Remote works just as well and it's smaller. The sound is not great. When you move to the newer TV's, the speakers get smaller and smaller. The sound can be so low its annoying at times. I found this to be the same in the higher end 65" televisions as well. My solution was to purchase a sound bar since I want a little base. This TV is a great bang for the buck, I'm looking forward to many years of great color and clarity just like I have with my other 4 Samsung TV's..
