Samsung Electronics America Inc., a market leader and award-recognized

(HDTV) Satisfaction Report. The study, which split its segment distinction in

more than seven years.

J.D. Power surveyed more than 6,000 consumers who purchased an HDTV in the
past 12 months to arrive at the rankings. Satisfaction is measured on a scale
of 1,000 based on seven factors: performance; reliability; ease of operation;
style/appearance; features; price; and warranty. According to the study,
Samsung ranked highest in the 50-inches and above category with a score of
879. The brand ranked highest for overall performance, reliability, style and
appearance, and features in a category that continues to be the fastest
growing TV segment with a 50 percent increase in the last year.

“Samsung’s highest priority has always been to leverage our technological
expertise to deliver a remarkable viewing experience and our products reflect
the efforts we put into picture quality, brightness, sharpness and detail,”
said Joe Stinziano, Executive Vice President of the Consumer Business Division
at Samsung Electronics America. “We are honored to be recognized for these
efforts by our valued customers, and J.D. Power.”

Samsung offers an expansive array of premium to entry-level TVs ready to
entertain in any room of the home in LED, Plasma and the innovative Ultra
High-Definition (UHD). Recognized for breakthrough picture quality and elegant
designs, Samsung TVs create a fully integrated and immersive home
entertainment experience.

Responding to the increase in consumer demand for larger-sized screens,
Samsung’s 2013 TV lineup offers more models in 60 inches and above than ever
before. With built-in Smart TV capabilities, the larger-sized sets are
designed to help consumers spend less time searching for shows and movies, and
more time watching them.
