I m not a fan of any company or prasing any one. What so ever I have faced or observed while choosing I m writing it down hope it will help u out in purchasing the right led TV .Hope my review will help you.
I have searched many brands like Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba and Samsung.
Most expensive models are available in the market. They are only selling Smart LEDs which I have found in their showrooms in my city. Screen mirroring / casting screen is a major issue in Sony. Not all mobiles are compatible with Sony. And if your smartphone connects with their Smart led it disconnects automatically. So if you only want to use Smart app like YouTube Facebook it is a good TV good picture quality and great sound but screen mirroring is a problem with Sony.
Good picture quality and good sound. Available in both Smart and non Smart models. They are the only brand who are using IPS PANELS. But non Smart TV can't play Mkv video files. It can play some Mkv videos but without sound. Had a words with their customer care and local Panasonic service centre people but they were not able to provide me appropriate answer. Only Smart models are playing Mkv movies with sound. Screen mirroring is also an issue with Smart led tvs.
Picture quality and sound quality is OK but not best/good like Sony,Panasonic and Samsung. If u r looking for low budget then go for this brand. Please note that it can play only Avi and Mp4 video files.
Best Customer Care service and excellent service center people. U have a problem they have a solution for it. Because of this reason I choose Samsung. Picture quality and sound quality is excellent. Screen mirroring works smoothly and can work will all Smart phone but u must be having screen mirroring / cast screen option available in your smartphone. Can play any video format u want to play and can support Hard Drive upto 2TB. You can play movies from your desktop PC or Laptop which directly displayed to your led TV screen without connecting any wire. It's inbuilt wifi technology is great and works smoothly.
So decision is all yours I choose this led model because of its Smart features. Hope my review help u out for choosing the right TV.
Samsung nailed it with this new model !!!

I purchased this tv from a retail store to replace my old Sony wega tv !!! At first i wanted to buy LG 42 Inch smart tv & i always wanted to invest in high products for the durability they provide...I actually went to the showroom twice....In daylight LG performed well with its IPS panel & i almost fixed it for purchase !!! Then at evening i went with my mom to show her my selected tv...But we quickly shifted to the awesome vivid display of this samsung tv & its viewing angles....Its been 2 days since i bought & i can tell the pros & cons of my favourite tv's !!
pros : 1- Its vivid & bright with great viewing angles & its Edge LED technology maintains consistency, that LG's IPS fails in viewing angles & even in artificial lighting conditions.
2- Colour reproduction is accurate with deep black & white....So the viewing experience is awesome !!! LG produces oversaturated colours that produces black as grey & it fades in viewing angles....
3- Smart tv hub has lots of apps & in-built Wifi is pretty fast & the sound quality is great for a smart tv.....Samsung told me it has 100 level of volume, but its crisp & clear even below the 20 level :)
4- I dont have HD connection now, but even in normal Dtv it shows great pictures...It has only 2 USB & HDMI ports, but i feel its enough for a normal user...Access to the contents are pretty fast in the storage devices & it supports all formats :)
5- Samsung already provided 2 updates to the tv software...so regular updates are not a problem
Now onto the cons
1- its not easy to access USB ports as it is in the side of the tv....With rigid Wall mounting its tough to connect the ports !!!
2- It doesnt have a video recording option that LG provides, but its just nit picking from my side.
3- No magic remote, so surfing through the browser with the normal remote sucks, but the virtual keyboard helps in smart browsing..
Ultimately when you buy a tv, you need to know whether they provide good customer service & samsung provides that...Except for a few cons ( that i dont mind), this tv provides me a great overall experience...So my rating is 5/5 :)

1. Good clarity
2.Can cast the screen without Chromcast
1.Seems Smart share can work only with Samsung mobile.
2.Screen capture is not working when connected to DTH.
Don't buy this samsung TV
by Rakesh Zingade on 2016-04-18
I have brought this TV in June 2014, that time just launched and costed me 62k. After 1 and half year the TV started giving problem. Its screen was off and power LED started blinking.
I called service center, let me tell you the charges also. Visiting charges are 170 rs and if service boy need to open the panel (which is by default in all cases) then the charges are 1400 plus taxes. The TV internal panel has 3 main circuits.. stabilizer, SMPS and motherboard. And if anything went wrong you have to replace entire circuitry boards.
In my case the service boy told me that mother board is gone.
Do you image that after buying TV of 62k within year the heart of system stops working without any issue or damage.
This is samsungs cheap engineering and bad product quality.
although this is expected from any electronics device. I wrote email to samsung CEO office of the same. Immediately I got the call from their engineer but they were so rude that even apologizing regarding product issue, straight way says they can't help.
this is it guys, I recommend before buying check for long run of the product and support maintenance issues.
Awesome Clarity but not too Smart
by Selvaraaju M on 2015-10-18
Good (If you want best clarity with this price, Way to GO !!!)
1. Beautiful Display, Decent Sound, Decent Slim, USB & HDMI works speeder
2. Has 5.1 DTS decoder inbuilt so Optical Out to 5.1 Home theater is made easy
3. Wider, so 16:9 ratio is perfect
4. Easy Screen Mirroring (Samsung Eco-System is preferred mostly)
Bad (If you want to bring your Social life to TV, don't buy this ??)
1. This is Joy Smart, not completely smart
2. No Smooth GUI animations
3. Only Apps tab for Smart Hub and no On TV, Social TV and Smart Sync for this TV
4. Wifi Direct seems not working but connecting anyway
5. Java games, no TIZEN/Android games
6. Smart Hub looks very cheap in Joy Smart
7. Mobile Remote apps won't work with this TV
8. Miracast enabled smart gadgets can able to screen mirror, and sorry Lollipop where Android removed Miracast
Best quality TV with bit less smart features
by Srihari Ravoori on 2015-08-13
I was bit hesitant to buy a TV online and now I feel there is no need to worry as long as I am doing online shopping with flipkart as I have got lot of confidence as I am a regular customer to flipkart for all my needs.
First shipment had a problem opening the apps inconsistently. After following up with flipkart, they replaced with a new TV with pickup as well as delivery and twice installing without any extra cost.
As per my usage last one month here
1. Picture quality is excellent. Resolution is high and expects to have good quality movie and cable connection.
2. Sound quality is very good though there is no in-built woofer.
3. Internet connectivity is good I tried with LAN cable, Wifi with router as well as 3G mobile.
4. Utube is working excellent as per the internet speed. Facebook and browser works with good speed. Other apps I don't feel much useful
5. I was able to connect with my wireless mouse as well as keyboard
6. All the video formats are working fine with USB like .mov, mp4, DVD, wmv, realplayer. No need to convert any of the files. I tried all the formats and all are working fine.
7. HDMI cable connecting to my laptop working fine.
8. Wide angle is working fine while watching sidewise without any glare.
9. There are other automatic sound and brightness controls which I am not using.
1. There is a recording Joy feature, only helps to record music with some pictures
2. Most of the mobiles can not connect with screen sharing. I heard only Samsung S5 above only works.
3. To connect to computer wirelessly, you need to enable the windows media sharing option, install samsung link software and add TV in near by devices. After lot of struggle sometimes the icon comes in TV to connect to computer which is very slow of not much use I felt
4. Samsung is not providing rotating wall mount
5. There is no android app that can be used as a remote unlike LG
As many advanced smart features are not supported I am not happy. Otherwise full marks to flipkart and Samsung audio/video quality which is an important consideration for a TV.
If someone wants to have screen sharing one has to purchase miracast/chromesast device.
Also the rotating wall mount costs around Rs 2000/- as majority of the customers are forced to buy other it will be difficult to use USB as well as HDMI ports.
Missing features as an advanced smart TV
Samsung need to provide in-built miracast kind of streaming options that would be compatible with all smart phones, recording video feature. It is better if Samsung could provide rotating wall mount for all customers so that they could get 100% rating.
by Vibhore Shrivastava on 2015-07-17
The TV is excellent. Nice picture quality and sound. But flipkart personnel didnt turn up for installation. I got it installed by Samsung technician who was initially reluctant to install the TV as it was bought by flipkart and not by local dealer
by Kumar on 2015-06-19
After reading about the challenges faced by consumers buying from the e-tailers, I decided to buy this from a regular electronics retail store. It was slightly expensive compared to Flipkart price with exchange offer. The TV was delivered same day and a free installation was arranged. The Picture quality is awesome. Overall very satisfied with this TV. Much cheaper compared to Sony with all the features. 5 stars from my side!
Awesome picture clarity spoiled by annoying technical issues
by Nehal Mehta on 2016-04-17
I bought this TV on 9th April from a local retailer with EMI option. TV delivered by the dealer on the same day of the purchase remained box packed for two odd days as Samsung technician came to install it two days later after repeated calls were made to the customer service. While there is no doubt about the brilliant picture quality (even SD channels are very much enjoyable) there are certain technical issues that turned me down.
On the day of installation itself, the display suddenly turned green in the evening. Switching off the TV and switching it back on resolved the problem. This did not happen while watching a video from a pen drive connected to a USB port. I tried changing the HDMI port but the next day issue came up again when TV was switched on in the morning. Samsung helpline gave a remote assistance as I had connected my TV to wi-fi. They reset the entire picture settings to factory default. However, next day the issue occurred again. They said this is a STB problem and also advised me to change HDMI cable from version 1.3 to 1.4a. I have ordered one such cable online and now will connect and see if changing a cable resolves the issue or not.
Another major issue is that it does not support mkv video format. Though it supports MP4 format, I played an MP4 movie file with 2 hours length according to the Samsung supported video specifications, the file stopped playing at around 1 hour and 22 minutes. I was then never able to play the file again beyond that 1 hour 22 minute time frame.
Networking works excellent and I can play photos, videos and audio files from my PC on home network to Samsung TV. My suggestion is that if you have more money to shell out, go for a smart TV from Sony. It might be priced a lot more higher than Samsung, but who knows if it may turn out to be a better option! Or else it is better to buy a non-smart full HD TV that might not be throwing up annoying issues listed above.
Awesome TV and superb service from Flipkart
by Karthik on 2015-10-22
Ordered on 14th Oct got TV promptly on 15th Oct. Flipkart executives called up twice to check if i would be available to take the product and after delivery there was feedback taken as well. Flipkart itself registers the prodcuth with Samsung for installation so you need not call the Samsung helpline this is really cool,thanks to Flipkart for such awesome service.
The TV is a stunner, coming to the specificity:
Picture quality 9/10 - the hyper real enginge does a great job, HD channel output is simply superb, SD channels are upscaled and the ouptut is great .
Sound 10/10: superb mix of Bass and treble, great 5.1 experience in such compact speakers, comes with Dolby digital output + dts true dialouge option ( this enhances the voice clarity greatly).
Smart features: works great with good wireless conneciton, havent' explored this area much.
Design 10/10: the bezel is so thin u'll feel like u'r watching an all screen tv, bcoz of the thin bezel u'll feel u'r watching an 42inches tv rather than a 40 inch. After watching program in this tv if you watch other tv with slightly bigger bezel u'll feel that u'r watching an screen with black borders :D
Remote is handy and has soft keys.
Verdict : Just go for it !!

I didn't bought it from amazon i bought if from reliance store for 53k since i wanted to pay on EMI. coming to the product it is great. even though it is VA panel it is far better than LG IPS panel when it come to black levels and color production .
1. Tru Black levels
2. Great color production
4. Supports 1TB HDD
5. Sound 4/5
1. No Sound control for External speakers when connected to tv .
2. Lag when using SMART HUB
------------------------------WHY IT IS NOT A GOOD TIME FOR 4K TV ---------------------------
1. There is no 4K content available, Except on NETFLIX (Not in India)
2. Regular TV Content will remain same for atleast 10 years. since there is a lot of money involved to upgrade to 4k
3. There will be no noticeable difference between Full HD and 4K TVs when watched from 10ft. distance
4. People who bought 4K tvs till now are HOSED (Watch LINUS TECH TIPS). They don't have HDMI 2.0 to take advatage of 4k. TV Brands are not
mentioning HDMI Version to sell old 4k tvs they simply mentions 4k 60p(Marketing gimmick) which is HDMI 1.4 . don't buy them if you want real
5. UHD Blu ray discs will be more costly than Blu rays. they are not available till now.
6. With HDMI 1.4 it cant produce actual color at 4k
-------------"LAST BUT NOT LEAST"---------------
3. " --------> Lot of 4k tvs manufactured till now are actually not compatible with UHD alliance specified specifications <---------- "
It is very good. Its picture quality & sound are excellent
by Suresh Purohit on 2015-11-22
So far I have used this item for one week only. It is very good. Its picture quality & sound are excellent. However I am facing one typical operational problem. Sometimes the sound of TV after starting is lost irrespective of sound level displayed on screen. In that case I have to restart the TV. It is irritating. It is bit expensive compared with similar other products but Samsung offers reliable quality & assurance. So I don't mind paying bit more.It's 'Smart TV' functions work very well with WiFi. Samsung's service engineer was very helpful to explain all the features during installation. Samsung provides fixed type wall bracket for TV installation. However this type is not at all convenient for easy access to the back of TV for connections & USB etc.I had got it installed thorough other agency, on rotating type of bracket for which I had to shell our Rs. 3500 extra.Samsung should reconsider their policy about bracket for large size TV. Be aware that its " Mirror" function is not compatible with all mobile models, but with only few models such as S5 & above which has this function available in mobile features only. I recommend this product for all who can afford it for its high end quality & for those who are techno savvy persons for its smart TV features.
46629 PICTURE QUALITY IS VERY GOOD. SOME OF THE FEATURES MENTIONED IN THE CATALOGUE ...
by DEEPAK RANKA on 2015-09-22
GOT IT FOR Rs. 46629
PICTURE QUALITY IS VERY GOOD .
SOME OF THE FEATURES MENTIONED IN THE CATALOGUE ARE JUST A PUZZLE OF WORDS . STORY REPLAY FEATURE DOES NOT RECORD THE PICTURE BUT JUST TAKES SNAPSHOTS . MOBILE CHARGING FEATURE IS NOT AS DESCRIBED .
ALL IN ALL A GOOD PRODUCT .
Good Choice with a Good Deal!!!!
by Arun kumar on 2016-08-13
I brought the TV last week. And really impressed the way it works on clarity and sound system. Have done a very long research to decide which one to buy and finally I have decided to go for this as it fulfills all my requirements even though I don't use smart concets much I didn't find price difference much with Full HD and smart TV this is the best deal and I would recommend every one if yoû veiwing distance is min of 6feets also
Only disadvantage is the installation guy who came has tried max to convince me on getting Flexible wall mount as he would gain money.but I recommend you can go with wall mount from Samsung wall mount only problem could be with RCA cables fixing and removing would be some difficulty. Samsung should look in to it if they can provide RCA cables points at side. But other USB and HDMI cable points are side ways which are easy to insert.
The fellow who installed it did not show smart features of internet
by kranthi kumar on 2016-06-16
I brought it one week ago ,
The fellow who installed it did not show smart features of internet, after two days when i was trying to watch youtube hd songs
the TV was unable to load,
I called the demo fellow he said may be the problem with internet when i checked with internet service the net speed was 40 mbps which i am using,
for browsing YouTube you just need 3 Mbps
So I called the Samsung customer care again they remotely accessed my TV through software
but still you tube HD content was not coming
THEY SUGGESTED ME TO WATCH SOME THING ELSE BECAUSE THERE IS PROBLEM WITH YOUTUBE
basically an smart TV without processor cannot load HD CONTENT easily
THIS TV DOES NOT HAVE A PROCESSOR
paying so much has gone in vain

Very good by pictures quality
Sound could be better like their 6 series led tv broblem in Wi-fi direct connection. If connected then lost any time. After that don't conect for long time.
Rest of these no problem yet
Overall good by all departments.
by Amazon Customer on 2016-07-18
TV is good except the smart TV section. It's very slow in loading apps and browser. And youtube app is not working with LAN connection, only wifi. SAMSUNG features its own version of app store which is not user friendly and powered with very less apps. Wondering why PlayStore was not chosen, they re-invented the wheels again. Consider SONY as they are compatible with PlayStore.
Very Nice delivery from Snapdeal!!
by Amazon Customer on 2015-11-03
The delivery was top notch. It was also delivered within the mentioned timeline. After that the installation from the Samsung team was also very friendly. He gave us a lot of time, to not only explain the features but also discuss the position on the wall.
by sourabh khamparia on 2016-01-15
Nice TV. It suits my requirements. Processing is not that good but one can buy it. Value for money.
Screen mirroring is working for some mobile only but we have Android app in case it doesn't work.
