Excellent value in a small, light TV. We needed a television to fit into a previously built in CRT TV. This filled the bill at a reasonable price.
So a 5 star. Yes, however, this is day one. Picture quality is terrific even right out of the box with default settings. Initially I connected to internet with the ethernet cable and there was a program update for the tv. Next I connected wireless. TV is upstairs and router is downstairs. I am getting a solid connection with 100 percent signal strength. For the Over the Air broadcast stations I am using an old indoor antenna. It is just a flat two wire cable that splits to a T shape at the end and has about 18 inches of anntenna going out from each side of the T. I am picking up 20 stations, solid and crsytal clear. I am located about twenty five miles away from the broadcast towers. The sound is fine. Given they can not fit large speakers inside a flat screen TV the sound is actually better than I expected. I will be attaching a sound bar with a subwoofer, for movie watching. The USB port came in handy for putting in the ID and password for netflix and samsung. Attaching a keyboard than using a remote. I will try to remember to update this review a few months from now. A tip of the hat to Crutchfield. I had a delivery issue created by UPS. They put the tv on the wrong truck and then decided the delivery address was bad. UPS returned the tv to Crutchfield. Crutchfield turned a new shipment around very quickly and I had the tv the next day. It was great to be able to speak to ACTUAL people at Crutchfield. They did a terrific job on fixing that issue.
Pros: Easy setup. Solid Over the Air broadcast reception. Wireless connection for internet is easy to setup and provides a strong connection. Excellent picture quality
Cons: Sound is fine, but not great, but I did not expect it to be great. This is not my first flat panel tv, so I will be using a sound bar to improve the sound quality.

Built-in HDTV Tuner: The Samsung TV features a built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Clear QAM tuner, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals (up to 1080i); subscription still required to receive cable channels. A single RF-type coaxial input is use to connect an external indoor/outdoor antenna (sold separately).
ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel within the television's HDMI 2 input enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input.
Note: Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 2 input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.
Optical Digital Output: The TV's optical digital output terminal will output Dolby Digital or DTS (when available), as well as DTS Neo 2.5 or 2ch PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital or DTS when receiving Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the tuner, network apps, HDMI inputs, or USB ports. The optical digital audio output will only output in 2ch stereo from analog connected sources.
Note: This TV does not contain any analog audio outputs.
DTS Premium Sound: The Samsung Full HD TV employs DTS Premium Sound processing which will decode DTS-encoded content, such as TV programming, Blu-ray movies, and streaming media, as well as processes stereo content to deliver an optimized virtual surround sound experience with enhanced bass response, clear dialog, and consistent volume levels through the TV speakers.

I have had good luck with the brand[ M Sep 03, 2017 ]
I picked this tv because it had the features that I wanted, it is a 2017 model and the purchase price was better than all other sellers. For electronics I typically use Crutchfield. Shipping is free and I receive the products within two days of ordering. With Amazon, free shipping is now taking anywhere from 5 to 7 days.[ Keith Aug 29, 2017 ]
