Like many reviews I have read about this TV, it is a basic "few bells and whistles" 4K TV. As a refurbished unit, the price was great. It arrived undamaged and in like new condition. This TV has 4K resolution only when 4K programming is delivered through the HDMI1 port. It does NOT upscale HD or SD programming like so many 4K TVs do these days. The screen image is incredibly detailed and sharp in regular HD mode (I don't have a true 4K DVD player), and there are a few basic adjustments available for sound and picture quality. After tweaking them a bit, I'm happy with the picture. The sound only sports about 8 watts per channel, so it is not a robust, room filling sound from this TV, but it's adequate for late night viewing in the bedroom I bought it for. All in all, it's an okay basic 43 inch TV that has enough going for it that I feel I got my money's worth. REVIEW ADDENDUM: To anyone purchasing this TV, be aware that most of the included picture settings in setup have the color saturation level set at 50. I'm assuming the unit I bought is no different from other new or refurbished units sold, but at the 50 setting the colors are seriously over-driven and even the black and dark images on screen have a lot of glowing blue in them. I finally backed the "COLOR" setting in the "PERSONAL" (customized) configuration down to 35 and the colors look a whole lot more natural with the black parts of an image looking black. Just a suggestion.
Ok lets see here, I just got this tv the other day, I really like and had lots of cool features, an its thinner than most other 40" TV's I have looked at, and my favorite feature of the tv is the "electronic program guide" so I can see what's on with out having to look at the paper version. This tv was for my bedroom an it was the perfect it. It sets on my dresser on top of an old DVD/VHS combo player. The tv is really bright which is nice an even look cool when its turned off. So really my only complaint I have on this tv is that there is no built on cable holder for your cables. You have to use those small heart shaped sticker ones but the problem with them is they DON'T last long or if you have heavy cables through it, the cable holder or wire stand as Samsung calls it looses its stickiness after a short while or the cables some weight to it an pulls it off an you have to replace it several times with new ones, I have had to order 5 of these cable wire stands just so I will have extras to use. I wish this tv had a built on cable holder to hold all your cables in place when you connect them to your tv. But other than that I am pretty happy with this set.
Put the stand on, connected to cable box, flipped the on switch and voila... great picture out of the box. The TV has a difficult time connecting to the router. I even moved the TV within about 28 or 30 feet in direct line of sight of the router and still nothing. I suppose it could be the router, so at this point I can only use it as a TV. I am however going to hard wire the router to the set and that will make for a very stout internet connection and eliminate any wireless interference. So only problems so far are on my end the TV is otherwise fantastic.
I have been enjoying this tv for several months now. Once I got the color and sound tweaked for my personal liking it has remained consistent and beautiful. The sound quality is very good, but typical, so I hooked it up though the headphone jack to some favorite desk top speakers. My only complaints are that there isn't an option for turning on/off at the tv without the remote and switching between functions is annoying because the drop down menu changes the order of choice, so I have to throw on my glasses to go from Roku to a favorite channel or my DVD. Other than those two annoyances, this is a very good tv and I do recommend it. It took only about 5 minutes to set it up out of the box.
