Screen Share/Apple AirPlay Does Not Work. After two factory resets and numerous attempts to use the screen sharing/Apple Airplay functionality, we continued to get message on the TV “Unable to connect to Samsung Server.” Everything else streamed and functioned great and internet connection fine. Finally called Samsung Support, and after an hour on the phone, doing various resets and checks, I was told there was issue with the TV and I should return it.
Using this as a monitor and TV. Picked up on my Samsung sound bar immediately. Able to connect (wireless) from my surface book 3 and see it as an external monitor in 4k. Downloaded power toys from windows and set it up with fancy zones so it looks like the equivalent of 6 separate screens and you can lay the grid out however you like. Originally ordered a 65" curved screen but it arrived with some issues and I had to return it. Really wanted another curved screen but they were out of stock so I settled (so I thought) for the flat 65". This thing is a third of the weight, about a quarter of the thickness, and the screen is beautiful. Actually glad the other screen had the issues or I would never have ordered this model that I like so much better. Only issue I had was that when the delivery guys opened the door on the truck, the TV was laying over on top of some other boxes in the delivery truck with none of the other items in the truck secured in any way. I was advised that it had just fell over between this stop and the last. The guys were trying to pick it up from one end and there was a very noticeable amount of flex due to the way they were trying to maneuver it. I get it, I've worked delivery. These guys just wanted it off their truck so they could get to the next stop. That being said, when I worked delivery, I would NEVER have let the customer see me handling something they just paid over $850 for in the manner they were. I voiced my concerns and was told, "it's ok, if it's damaged you can just return it". Come on, guys. At least act like you care about the item you're delivering.
Had this for about 2 weeks now and the picture quality looks amazing. Sound is what you’d most expect out of a flatscreen TV but it’s not bad either. It’s very easy to setup and has a lot of great smart features. The software has been a little bit delayed at times, but a majority of the time it’s smooth and easy to navigate with the remote control. Also, the picture is very clear and sharp with gaming & movies. Overall I would definitely recommend this TV for someone looking for a newer model within a cheaper budget.
