1. The "Model" you have.

Samsung UN55KU6500.

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

4K/HDR.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

Picture Quality.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.

The Remote.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

It has all the features I need.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

None. The tv is great as it is.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

How excellent the PQ was.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

None.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

On the high end tv's no because of the lack of 4K Material out there. There's some but not alot and hopefully that changes soon.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

It's great to be finally on the 4K bandwagon but the lack of 4K material to show off my new tv is really frusterating but I knew that before I even bought my tv that 4K has yet to hit it's stride and get more mainstream. Hopefully that all changes in the coming years.

1. The "Model" you have.

Samsung 78KS9500

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

Size, & got a good deal on it.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

Picture quality with 4K sources. Wow! Also, surprisingly deep blacks. Pretty cool remote too.

4. What you don't like about your LCD.

Flashlighting/clouding. With a lower backlight like I use, it's not too bad. But when watching HDR content, the backlight automatically jumps to max and there is significant flashlighting on dark screens.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

It has all the features I need.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

Id rather hook my receiver direct to the TV - the OneConnect box just seems like an extra hop.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

How big the box is!

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Had a strange issue the first day not being able to access some picture modes/settings.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

Up to 65" i think are at reasonable prices. When you want something larger like i did, prices skyrocket (excessively IMO).

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

Like other posters, I'm hoping for more 4K content sooner rather than later. I also wish manufacturers would give the option of a "non-smart" TV for a reduced cost, for those of us with HTPCs and the like. I don't need any built in apps, cameras, streaming services etc. but I'm paying for them regardless.

Samsung 78KS9500
Axiom M60 (x2) , Axiom VP150 , Axiom QS8 (x2) , SVS PB1000 (x2)
Yamaha RX-V581
PS4
HTPC (i3-2105 , GTX 1050)

1. The "Model" you have.

Samsung 65KS8000

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

Reviewed as the best tv for a bright living room and then size and price point.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

Looks real good

4. What you don't like about your LCD.

Trying to figure out HDR and Netflix on it.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

Easier setup for HDR for sources.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

Make HDR more of an automatic change.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

How damn good regular cable tv from directv looks. We had a 5+ year old 60" led sharp.

8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Figuring out why netflix looks so dark on titles.

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

Yes, if you wait and pickup a closeout 2016 model. At full MSRP then no.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

The tv looks brilliant with the proper source material. If only I could get netflix to look like the demo videos from the HDR channel on youtube.

1. The "Model" you have.

Vizio P65

2. What convinced you to purchase this particular model.

After extensive research and the good experiences I've somewhat had before with other vizio models. This tv gets high from a lot of people and I just dug the way the bezel looked compared to other sets.

3. What you like best about your LCD.

The set physically looks great in its "earth toned" settings. The metal bezel gives it a beefy look. The picture is of coarse great and its one of those sets you keep "playing" with and figuring out new ways to show off things


4. What you don't like about your LCD.

Its probably my first "big" set and it was a beast to transport.

5. What "Feature(s)" you wish your LCD had.

Although completely being phased out, we are still somewhat of a cord cutter family and still have over the air antennas. This set of coarse has no tuner. Which I don't mind but it really challenges you to find a way via either roku or "chrome casting" to watch good television.

6. What advice or suggestion would you make to the "Manufacturer" about your LCD.

I would suggest for them to cut back on the different variant/models (D, E, M, P series) to be cut. Its ridiculous just because one has one little thing different that it now has its own designation and the differences in price or leading to a lot of consumer confusion, which I'm guessing is to Vizio's benefit.

7. What was your biggest "Surprise" after you received your LCD.

Just how easy the setup was. I hit a few buttons on the tablet remote and everything was happening on the screen.
Felt like I was really entering in the future.


8. What "Problems or Issues" have you had with your LCD.

Just trying to figure out or toggle around the tablet remote. I'm still trying to get used to making settings changes to a specific port and wondering if this is changing something else somewhere else. It's not very clear on what is happening sometimes when you make these changes

9. Do you really think that todays "Prices" are worth it.

They can be if you are diligent and don't just jump on the latest greatest. It's pretty amazing when I think back to the first flat panel that I bought a few years ago and to the amount I have had to learn now to get to know what I'm actually buying.

10. Any additional information that you want to add is encouraged.

Be patient. Do your homework.
