Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung UE37EH5300 37-inch 1080p Full HD Smart LED Backlit TV (Electronics)Arrived promptly and easy to set up, smart functions seem to work but the love film app (big reason for purchase) is clunky and a disappointment after using the ps3 app for love film. Sound is in fact better than expected & picture in SD is acceptable but the other reason for buying this TV was the Free view HD tuner, unfortunately the TV was unable to tune to the available HD channels. Samsung suggested trying another Ariel (although we have a youveiw set top box that receives HD channels without a problem) so the TV was carried next door and setup run to produce no sign of HD channels, while the neighbours TV happily receives our new purchases missing channels. Now awaiting a replacement. I hope it performs and continues to perform better than the first attempt. My initial hope that this TV may be the one box answer to our multi box conundrum looks to be at risk

Using the ps3 or xbox app it is easy to navigate to both films and tv content such as BBC series content with a well laid out menu interface, where as with the samsung app all the tv content is buired in the menu, it took some searching round the forums to find out how to navigate to it, even then there seems to be some missing that you can get to on the ps3, Ive now received a replacement set but it still refuses to tune to freeview HD, on reflection this was a poor buy, comparing general build quality to a similar panasonic shows the samsung to be the poor option. I feel smart tv's require some development before I dip my toes again. Also samsung technical support is a joke of the worst type, an absolute waste of time!
