Every smart TV I've ever used has felt clunky (when compared to AppleTV/FireTV/Roku3). IMO, Smart TVs are a gimmick. Get a $40 device designed to do that rather than some under-developed POS software shoddily integrated in the TV.

Oh, I agree. I have an LG Smart TV, but I've used the FireTV for a couple of years and been extremely happy with it.

I was looking for an inexpensive 40+" Smart TV to buy for my elderly aunt and uncle, who are watching an old 32" 720p piece of crap. I gave them the Amazon FireTV Stick I got before I ended up buying the full FireTV, and signed them up with Netflix & Amazon Prime TV. Unfortunately they have a really bad habit of selecting the wrong input for the FireTV Stick and then not being able to get to it to watch stuff.

I've written/printed/emailed the instructions numerous times, but they're nearing 80 and just ... don't get it. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

I thought maybe if I got them a Smart TV, with a unified interface for Netflix/Amazon Prime/Hulu, etc, they'd be able to navigate it more easily, but this one's interface seems more frustrating and clunky than most. Which is kind of a surprise for Samsung.

I feel your pain on that one. An added benefit is if you plug the FireTV into an HDMI-CEC input, it will auto-switch to that input when you turn it on.

I have a Samsung 55" SmartTV and the smart interface is terrible. It works, but I'm spoiled with the FireTV (full, not stick). I'm assuming this would be the same.

That's a great deal on the Vizio. I've seen it for $390 on Wikibuy, but that $150 GC is next level. Can you pm the link?

these rtings reviews should help you decide. this j5200 samsung (6.5 overall rating) is rated much lower by rtings than the vizio 1080p d series (7.5 overall rating). i have the vizio d series 2016 model 50" 1080p (not 4k) and it is much better than the samsung j5200, wihich i returned due to terrible motion blur for sports and below average overall pic quality. for the money, you won't do much better than the 2016 vizio d series 1080p lineup.

I'm also debating between this and the Vizio 50". Probably going to go with this and sell it down the road in a year or two. Have you had trouble selling the Dell e gift card

I'm doing the rolling/reselling game, so it's not for me. If it were for me, I would have done the Vizio. I ordered the Samsung last night, and semi regret it already, but I get a little iffy trying to flip a $400 TV on CL. It's not much different than a $300 TV, though. Egh. I've just already sold one of the Samsungs and get a fairly decent response to the ad. Should have gone Vizio, though.

How much do you make when flipping a $300 TV?

Great TV, glares a lot. No HDMI-CEC, despite what you've read.

I have the j6200 but software should be the same.. it's not as bad as everyone says.. yes it takes a bit for it to load 4-5 mins from power on.. however press smart hub press right and there is Netflix or whatever.. and it does stream at 1080p which I can't say the same for my fire stick because it constantly kept braking frames especially with kodi.

also idk which panels the j5200 have but that's something to watch for.. mine had a actual Samsung panel but many don't and that could end up being pretty bad motion blur or other side affects
