I bought this TV from Amazon and received it the next day via UPS. I hooked it up and it works flawlessly. The set-up is amazingly simple, the TV is very easy to set up and put together. Everything is explained in detail and gives video demonstrations. I went ahead and calibrated the TV using a calibration DVD and the TV offers some of the most superb and realistic picture quality I have seen yet. The 3D is also much improved and it's nice they threw in 4 pairs of glases with it. I have found that if you follow the directions that they show you very clearly in the demonstrations and follow the process, the TV responds very accurately and very well. The motion controls are probably the only thing that needs a very little amount of work, but I mean, compared to a Kinect, it basically works the same way and is not more or less accurate then the Kinect, either. The TV's black levels are the best I have seen for an LED set, coming close to the best of Plaasma's, motion rate is extremely enhanced and 3D performance has no visible crosstalk or juttering as in old sets. All in all, this is the best performing and high-est tech TV set available. It's also extremely fast with the dual core processing, everything you do is a snap. Apps load very quickly, internet is decent and the TV responds well. I have not had any issues from a weeks use of the TV. It has worked flawlessly.

***UPDATE*** after further testing I have found one flaw. The media hub works well, however, Netflix has an issue. It will only work half the time. Half the time it will not load a video and the TV will reset, the other half it works fine. I haven't lost any settings yet, however, it is annoying. I have reduced to 4 stars sInce it isn't the end of the world and will likely be fixed with a simple software update.

I wrote a review for the Evolution Kit and my horrible experience that followed after trying to install it. I'll just cut and paste from that review:

EDIT 6\6\2013

So.....after having this device for a few days I came to discover that my TV wouldn't turn on. Press the power button and I hear a click come from the TV (normal) but then you hear another click right away and the TV remains off. I figured the last thing I did to my TV was install the evolution kit so I removed it and my TV turns on again. Install the kit and again the TV would not turn on. So this unit is now dead. It also seems to have killed my TV because now my RVU client will not work. Any content I play from my genie DVR will play for about 10 seconds then the entire TV will just freeze. So now my evolution kit and TV are dead.

I contacted Samsung support and the person I chatted with was completely useless. The end result was my case being escalated to someone else and I was told they would be contacting me in 2-3 days. Yeah, that was OVER A WEEK AGO. I contacted them again and was told to keep waiting, they'll get to me when they get to me.

Well, the device was great when it worked. However in the end it ruined my TV and I'm now left sitting in the dark with zero support.

All stars removed for having the worst customer service I have ever experienced. Also if this device has the ability to physically harm the TV itself then it's just not worth it in my opinion. If they stood by their product and responded to service then ok, but they don't and now I'm screwed. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some books to buy since TV is not on my todo list anytime soon.

EDIT 6\11\2013

After 2 weeks of waiting I contacted Samsung again and raised hell!

Everything started off great. We loved the TV, the picture was great, and running netflix without the xbox was nice.

I've had this TV since March and all of a sudden it will start to power off. We have had the TV for about 5 months at this point and shouldn't be having this poblem. I contacted their support and did the usual troubleshooting. Reset the TV, changed some settings, checked for updates. All of which I did before but just did it to go through the process. I was on hold for while and during that time it wasn't turning off so I hung up. Well now it will not even stay on for 2-3 minutes then it just constantly turns off and on. I am hoping to get a new one and see how it goes. But I know for sure that I will not buy another Samsung TV. I have two other LED tv's in the house for years with no issues but different brands. Just very dissappointed in the qualitiy of the TV. Beware!

I own several Tvs including another samsung (which i like), and i'm pretty savvy at using them. This tv is faulty and not intuitive.
Why it is faulty (some of the issues):
-Out of the box, AV technician had trouble connecting to internet (connected and then disconnected on it's own)
-Attempted to set up remote to control STB (set top box). During 4 attempts, tv froze, restarted, and long delays of blanks screen
-Often times when bringing up menu, there is a menu frame, but no text (e.g. a popup window with nothing inside)
-Most notable, during regular tv viewing, without touching remote, TV turns off and on every 15 minutes. I thought this might be due to something triggering voice activation, but turned that off and problem still occurs. This is a dealbreaker - i don't think intentional, but the tv has an uncanny knack for turning off during climatic moments.
-Several times the TV froze and i needed to unplug to reset.
-controlling tv with hand gestures - after successfully going thru hand gesture set up process, could not get it to work and at one point I thought I might be on candid camera as I sat waving at my TV. Perhaps this is user error, but if it is this difficult to use, i'm not interested.
-i reset the tv thru the menu options and also checked for software updates - it said i have most recent software

Why is not intuitive?
-this more difficult to articulate, but i found it overwhelming and confusing to figure out the features. I didn't even attempt to use the 3D. The instruction manual is not very helpful. There is an online user guide, but i didn;t find that very useful either. My best advice would be to visit a store where this tv is on demo and try it out.
