Sadly led astray
on January 18, 2015
I am only posting this comment to relate my experience with this television, which is quite disappointing after all of the glowing reviews I have read. I never write an "out of the box" review so keep in mind that the issues I have experienced did start to occur after the TV was in use for just over a year, but I still think that the information may be relevant to some.
Up front, I do want to add that there are some excellent things about this TV. The picture never failed to be brilliant, sharp and just plain exceptional. It is slim and light and just an all around beautiful display. But, I want something that will stand entirely alone and not fail after a year out of the box, this did not deliver.
Failure started a year after we started using the TV. The SmartTv, apps, and internet connection just completely failing. When we first got it, we could do so much through the TV/internet connection with just a USB keyboard. It was a little clunky, but a nice feature. Shortly after, the sound quickly deteriorated, having to turn it up almost all the way to hear anything. I had to hook it up to my receiver -- now I had to worry about 2 remotes. The second year after purchase the power started to cycle and completely shuts the television off and back on. I have read there was an issue with other models, but not this one. This is not a once a day or even once in blue moon problem, it happens several times an hour. We don't watch TV often, which is what makes this even more frustrating.
