Beautiful Product, however Youtube did not work
The product was in great condition and was simple enough to assemble. It was also light weight and I was able to lift it with ease. The picture on the TV is so clear and flawless. The visual effects are so realistic too. Also, the sound on the TV is so crisp and clear. My only complaint is that the Youtube for the internet was not working unless I connected my smart phone to the TV. The remote was functioning properly besides this one flaw. However, it was a big flaw because my boyfriend enjoys the music on Youtube and watching movies and television shows. Hopefully we will be able to mend this error and be completely satisfied with our new Samsung TV.

Very nice television.
I've had this TV for about 6 weeks and it operates quite well. The screen has a great display once you adjust the levels to your taste, but the sound often has a tinny tone, often caused by the varying quality of the specific network vs the TV. I've yet to use much of the Smart TV options, which are quite a nice variety; however, connecting to our home wifi was fast and simple.
So far, there've been little issues other than having to access online the User's Manual. There is access to the manual on the screen, and I've found that to be more useful. It's been very enjoyable thus far, especially for all of the broadcast sports' events this time of year.

Problems with few applications
one of the problems we are facing with this particular model is that the tv takes some time to prepare for actual start and launch of applications. More annoying is the problem that often comes with Netflix application. Most often, it keeps refreshing any program we watch. This problem comes for sure in one out of three attempts.
Have already made the technical department of Samsung aware of this issue and after some trouble shooting it could not be solved and we were given a ref no. It should have been solved in a day or two according to the representative but unfortunately it wasn't.
We are thinking of returning this model and buy from some other brand.

SMART TV without proper apps is very bad
Hi Team, I am not sure how the SMART TV apps developed. According to me Apps should be developed first before providing the TV to market. I bought a TV recently of model UN40J5200. I don't find lot of apps for my TV, not able to share properly anything from Laptop to TV through wifi, Then i believe how i will say this is SMART TV. I expect at least 1 or 2 apps for Remote Management (like Samremote, Remotie, myTifi for iPhone), have some way to share the Browser from Laptop to TV or something. Another popular app not there is Verizon FiOS TV.
As i don't find all apps to Support this SMART TV i wouldn't say this TV is SMART yet.

I had to buy a new TV because my 1.5 year old Sharp 32" LED TV motherboard blew in constant 70 degree temperatures and less than 2 hours of watch time per week. Sharp customer service said it had to operate under constant temperatures and no more than 4 hours of watch time in one sitting. Isn't it a TV that's supposed to be watched?
In any event, so far, I am thoroughly impressed with this Samsung 40 inch LED Smart TV. Variety of options for Sound, Picture, and Resolution even with the most basic package. It even has a great picture with direct cable hook up and no HD box. The Smart functions are also fun. Looking to learn more about those in the near future.

A satisfied customer!
I have only had the t.v. a few days but I am thoroughly enjoying it.
When we first set it up, I was concerned because we had a 6 inch border on both sides of the screen and we tried everything we could think of to correct it.
I finally called in to customer service and the representative had me do what we had already tried . . to no avail. After ascertaining that I had a cable box, he attempted to walk me through the process, but I had to leave so I called my cable provider back later and was able to get rid of the borders.
Now I have the full screen and am very pleased, both with the customer service and the t.v.!

Very narrow viewing angle
Samsung 40” LED Smart TV - J5200 series
Having used the TV for two months, I note the following issues:
1- The left & right edges of many TV programs are cut off and not visible. This is especially noticeable on news & weather broadcasts.
2- If the viewers are not directly in front of the TV, the colors are faded and washed out. This is a 40” screen and everyone can’t be seated on a straight line in front of the screen.
The viewing angle is too narrow.
3- Excessive Audio Positions – It takes too long to change volume level. The remote batteries will wear out quickly with 100 audio levels.
Would not recommend this TV to anyone!
I expected better from Samsung!

Great picture and features with the smart TV
Every feature of this product is great with one exception. It seems I have to go into the network settings everyday to refresh the internet connection and then there are no problems for the rest of the day. If I forget to do the refresh, the TV goes into some type of 'wait' state for a while. The remote control has no effect. After several minutes I am able to turn off the TV, wait a few seconds, turn the TV back on and refresh the network. It is a nuisance. Maybe the modem is too far away from the TV but I have a Samsung DVD that does not experience the problem. I am not sure what is the problem. Otherwise I am very pleased with the product. I like Samsung products.
