    Steven Rhea from Knoxville, TN on 1/17/2019

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I just wanted to say how easy it was to order from Cruthfield. I had already done research on the product I wanted. It was so easy to find them on the internet.They were very competitive in pricing and also easy to purchase from. I quickly received a confirmation on the order. Also a tracking number for when I would receive the product.I think it was three days.I didn't have to call them on set up of the item. The product came wiith easy directions. That means alot since my wive says I'm not allowed to have hand tools. The next time I have to purchase electronic equipment Cruthchfield will definitely be considered.

    Pros: picture, size sound,, easy to use and set up.

    Cons: I Have not found any yet.

    Good little bedroom TV

    Charles from Rural VT on 12/27/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Picture and sound is very good. Narrow trim is nice. Easy set up. Wide stance plastic snap-in feet are a problem. When located on top of a bureau, counter, or other narrow surface, you cannot rotate the tv more than a few degrees for a better viewing angle. One support foot will fall over the edge. Previous models with a single center pedestal mount were much more flexible and practical. The manual on/off button is hidden on the bottom (underneath) the tv, difficult to find and access. Do not lose your remote control- this tv is complicated to operate manually. All in all the tv does what a tv should do quite well (with the remote control!).

    Pros: Nice price point for overall good quality, narrow trim, good picture, decent sound. SUPERB service from Crutchfield!

    Cons: Wide stance mounting feet will limit some installation locations. Hard to find and access the manual on/off button. Manual operation/ navigation is quite clumsy if remote control is lost or broken.

    Cons:

    Perfect size and remarkable capabilities.

    Alvin from Ormond Beach, FL on 12/8/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    We needed a new TV for our RV. This is the perfect size. We needed a TV that could receive digital signals through a coax cable that most campgrounds provide. The one that came with the coach would not do that. It could not convert a Digital signal to Analog which is what that TV used. This set has that capability and so much more. It has built in Wi-Fi and receives / converts any signal sent. It has capabilities to work like a personal computer.

    Pros: See comments above.

    Cons: None so far.

    Great Bedroom TV

    Crutchfield customer from Chicago, IL on 12/6/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great picture. I bought this TV for my bedroom. It has all the bells and whistles one expect from samsung. I really like the auto dimming feature. When watching TV at the crack of dawn or just before bed the screen doesnt blind the viewer. I would give this TV a five if you could narrow the legs. There is only one option for the stand.

    Pros:

    Cons: You cannot move the stand legs into a narrower position

    Delivery was very quick. Setup was straightforward. I cannot comment on the audio quality since I use the ARC feature to play the audio through my sound system.

    Pros: ARC makes connection to receiver a snap.

    Easiest set up ever

    Robert from Westfield, NJ on 11/28/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This was the easiest set up for a smart TV that I have experienced. I prefer Sony for the cinema like picture that is easy on the eyes but this Samsung has a really nice picture - and it's adjustable. When I turned on this Samsung for the first time, it automatically detected over the air channels in addition to the cable I had attached. A few easy steps further on and I found the wifi networks in my home all listed. Picked a 5G network and two easy steps later I was logging on to Netflix. Setup was very easy and improved from the Samsung I bought previously. Love it.

    Pros: Much improved smart TV interface. Good sound.

    Cons: Remote will not be detected unless you leave the base of the TV open. Don't rest it on a table or the floor without installing the supplied base first.

    Great Picture

    FINE TV FOR EVERYONE AND THE VISUALLY HANDICAPPED

    Gene from Fort Worth, TX on 11/28/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I bought this unique TV for my wife who is losing her eyesight to macular degeneration. This set makes audible announcements, it talks to you, when you use the remote to change channels, volume and other functions. All of these announcements are adjustable as to speed, volume, pitch of the announcing voice. Now the even better part. This 32in set produces an excellent picture and very good sound. Another nice feature is that it self programs many functions when turned on for the first time. My only complaint is that the instruction manual is in the set's memory, not in a separate printed booklet. Getting to and using the E-Manual is not as intuitive as it should be. I did have to call Samsung once for help in getting to various controllable functions. A tv set for visually handicapped persons should have a well thought out printed manual available even if at extra cost. But this is a very good TV.

    Pros:

    Cons:

    Bob from Fort Worth, TX on 11/27/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Great TV for bedroom or other smaller room. Easy setup, great picture and good selection of included streaming apps for Netflix, Prime, etc. Sound quality is OK for a smaller set like this, but if you can add a soundbar it is much better. As with all my previous experiences dealing with Crutchfield, it was a pleasure purchasing from them. They always do a great job meeting my expectations and making me feel like a valued customer.

    Pros: Great picture Easy setup Good value for the price

    Cons: Sound quality could be a little better

    Overall a good television. A little hard to learn the settings but overall very intuitive. Occasionally the remote does not work and the TV will not turn on, the red light blinds and nothing happens. The speakers are OK for the size of the unit. but not great. These shortcomings have been reported on other reviews.

    Pros: A great picture and good bang for the bucks.

    Cons: Sound OK - recommend soundbar. Trouble with turning on TV with remote occasionally.

    Easy to set up, less than 10 minutes. When we watched our first show, my wife commented that she felt she was in the room with the actors, as the screen was vivid and clear. Delivery was quick.

    Pros: Easy set up, numerous apps included

    Cons: Because of weight, two person job

    Two annoying flaws.

    Walter from North Conway, NH on 10/21/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    After having this product for less than two weeks I have become very frustrated and disappointed with two apparent defects. 1. Unable to turn on the tv with the remote. The red infrared light just flashed when I depressed the remote power button. This happened several times but not every time. I then became aware that this tv has no exterior control buttons such as on/off, volume etc. 2. One time I tried to turn on the unit and only got sound, no picture. I had to unplug the tv then plug it back in to override this flaw. I contacted Crutchfield customer service and "Buzz", handled my complaint and arranged to have the tv returned. I am not giving up on Samsung just yet so I ordered a different size and model that should arrive in a couple of days. Hopefully my review of the replacement tv with be better than this one.

    Pros: Good picture, easy to set up.

    Cons: No external controls, defective "IR" in the tv for remote control. The "Ap" menu appears randomly.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Fantastic TV, especially for the price point. It is amazing what improvement the Television Industry has done just in the last several years. This TV replaced a 27" Samsung in our breakfast/kitchen room/s. Super clear picture with great brightness and color. 1080P is surely a step up from 1080I. Pretty decent sound as well, especially for news and sports. Garrett, our Customer Specialist was super at answering questions and following up after the sale. He made sure the delivery was smooth, and the unit arrived in perfect shape. Crutchfield was a retail seller on this product, but well worth the small additional money spent and not having to deal with a non-authorized vendor. 60 day return guarantee gives the consumer piece of mind as well. Good Job Garrett and Crutchfield.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    This is my third Samsung TV. I have yet to find any issues with any of them. All three still working fine after 8 years.. 1 year and now a month on this new one. This unit was a simple plug and play.. The image is crystal clear and a pleasure to watch. I find this unit perfect for my home office which doesn't require the extra large screen. All in all a great buy and one I'd gladly make again.

    Pros: Clear beautiful picture. Nice sound. Easy to operate and adjust if needed.

    GREAT PICTURE - BUT WILL IT LAST?

    Steve from Schaumburg, IL on 8/20/2018

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I've had this bedroom TV unit for about 3 weeks & while the picture is excellent for a 32" 1080p HD TV, I've had 2 'WTF' problems that clearly raise concerns about the build quality of this TV. Since the built-in audio is poor (typical of sets in this 'class') I'm using a 1 yr. old VOX soundbar which automatically turns on when an audio signal from the TV is detected. BUT about a week after installing the TV, the TV's sound signal suddenly became highly distorted (I verified it was due to the TV vs the soundbar since I swapped out the soundbar for another one I own). Cycling the TV & Soundbar on/off & trying another cable didn't resolve the issue. However, after PHYSICALLY unplugging the TV & then reconnecting the power cord, the problem was eliminated and hasn't occurred since. BUT THEN last week, the TV 'refused' to turn on at all! When clicking the remote's On/Off button the TV's red power 'on/off' LED indicator would briefly flash 'off' (the Red LED is on when the TV is in standby) but then went right back 'On' (ie back to standby mode). This happened 6 or 7 times before finally, the TV powered on. This problem hasn't occurred since either. Soooo, while the overall picture quality & WiFi reception is very good, I'm very concerned about the life span of this 2018 unit. NOTE: Last winter I purchased a different Samsung 32" unit (2017 model) which had major problem: the sound SIGNAL to the soundbar would suddenly come on long after the TV was turned off. Unit returne

    Pros: Great picture - built-in Apps, WiFi performs well. Decent price for a 32", 1080p HD TV

    Cons: Some potentially major defects that either relate to a design or more likely, build flaw. (One more 'defect' event - and the unit goes back!). Worth noting these kind of defects appear to be indicative of a growing number of Samsung devices.

    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).

    Audio Features

    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 AV 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, or HDMI inputs to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input.

    • The audio from the TV's tuner, HDMI inputs, USB ports, and Samsung TV apps can pass as Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, or 2ch PCM.
    • DLNA compliant devices will be output audio at 2ch PCM only.
    • DTS multichannel audio formats are not supported.

    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. The TV's speakers are muted when using ARC function.

    Optical Digital Output: The TV's optical digital output terminal will output Dolby Digital (when available) or 2ch PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital when receiving Dolby Digital surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the tuner, network apps, HDMI inputs, or USB ports. When the TV's optical digital output is selected, the TV's speakers are muted. DTS multichannel audio formats are not supported.

    Note: This TV does not contain any analog audio inputs or outputs.

    Equalizer: You can manually adjusts the TV's built-in 7-band EQ (100, 200, 500, 1k, 2k, 5k, & 10k Hz) for a more customized sound; or simply choose from the following EQ Preset Modes - Standard, Optimized, or Amplify.

    Audio Delay: The Audio Delay function corrects audio/video mismatch, when watching TV or video, and listening to a digital audio output using an external device such as an AV receiver. You can adjust the audio delay from 0ms to 250 ms.

    Auto Volume: Auto Volume stabilizes the volume across all programs and commercials when watching and listening to television programming.

    i need this size [ frances  Sep 15, 2018 ]
    I selected this television because of the brand (quality/reputation), the size of the television at that price point, free 1 day shipping being offered was a huge incentive over purchasing a more expensive and/or smaller size television locally for the same price, and finally because it is a smartTV. Crutchfield matched all those criteria so it was a no-brainer situation to purchase. [ Jennifer  Sep 04, 2018 ]

    3 questions already asked

    Hi. Yes it does. I often see things on YouTube and I'm able to send to this TV to view on a larger screen. [ Jennifer  Jan 05, 2019 ]
    Hmmm Sorry to say I don't know. Haven't tried it! [ Scott  Dec 31, 2018 ]
    As best I can tell you will have to connect through a computer, WIFI or perhaps a wireless adapter with a Bluetooth App. There are lots of apps available. Call a Crutchfield helper for a better answer or go to Samsung's site and enter the model number. I have sections of the imbedded E Manual printed but I don't use the set for anything but TV from over the air broadcasts. I bought it for my wife who has lost most of her vision to macular degeneration. This set talks to you and tells what channel you are tuned to, what volume level the sound is set to and a bunch more information for the sight impaired. The picture is excellent and has a remarkably wide viewing angle without loss of color or distortions. GW [ Gene  Dec 31, 2018 ]
    Yes. [ JOHN  Dec 31, 2018 ]
    NO [ JEFF  Dec 31, 2018 ]
    Yes, but I haven't tried to use it yet to verify how well it functions. [ Mark  Dec 31, 2018 ]
    Unfortunately, this model does not have Bluetooth capability. [ Walter  Dec 31, 2018 ]
    in all honesty, i have no idea. [ LINWOOD  Dec 30, 2018 ]
    The feet are curved and start at the outside edge of the TV. The spacing is about 24". I would hav liked them to be a little farther from the edge. Otherwise the TV is great ! [ Donald  Nov 29, 2018 ]
    1" from ends, 26" apart [ frances  Nov 22, 2018 ]
    As you can see in photo. they are tilted outward. That leaves the front of the feet 1" set back from the edge and the back set back 7" from the edge. The front distance apart is 25 1/2" and read set apart 15". Hope that helps. [ David  Nov 22, 2018 ]
    From the edge....less than @ 3/4".......Distance apart in front @ 25" It should be noted that the legs are slanted inward from front to back, making the rear distance less than the front. Hope this helps [ Alan  Nov 22, 2018 ]
    According to Spectrum's site yes. Any Samsung smart TV newer than 2012 will work. Just google the Spectrum App it lists where it can be downloaded to. [ David  Sep 23, 2018 ]
    I don"t know [ LEONARD  Sep 21, 2018 ]
    Sorry, I do not have an answer for that question. [ Connie  Sep 21, 2018 ]
