Andrew, Modbury Devon Technology is my passion

Score 6.0/10
Good points:
The new user interface is nicer with a more intuitive remote. No improvement to sound or vision but you do get more memory and a faster prosesor but only if you upgrade a 2012 tv. I have already fitted a evolution kit SEK 1000 so the only benefit for me was the new user interface and a new remote.
Bad points:
I found it very hard to fit as you have to be extremely carful not to damage the socket in the TV. I had a Samsung engineer to fit mine and he damaged and had to fit a new main board in the TV. Luckily still under guarantee

Richard, Landkey, Barnstaple.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fitting.
For me, this was way easier than some of the nightmare scenarios that I'd read online with multiple attempts to get it plugged in and working properly, it went in 1st time, but with no click as I was expecting there to be, & updated etc. with no issues.

Remote.
The new smart screen icons, including HDMI input option, are a doddle to action with the laser guided remote :-D, it's not a laser, obviously, or it wouldn't wander off! (See bad points). There is a ball of light that you move around the screen by pointing your remote at whatever you wish, including the letters on a pop up keypad, then press the enter button. The light comes on when it senses your thumb on the directional pad.
The Keypad button brings up an on screen representation of the old style remote with access with everything on it via that, not a qwerty keyboard as I was thinking :-D.

Smart Hub.
I like the way this is set out in sections, though I've not had enough time to really experiment with it properly yet. I added a few apps, like Amazon Prime, TuneIn Radio & Spotify (+ others) to my favourites, downloaded them & logged in, & they all work well :-)

Image quality.
Some say it doesn't have the ability to change that, some do, my own experience is that it does look better, but it may be that it just simply set the telly up differently on restart compared to how it was before the upgrade??

Sound.
I've no idea, all mine goes through the amplifier :-)

Value for money.
I was debating at full price, but at 32% off what's not to like! Where can you buy a 55" 2014 TV for that lol :-D

Unfortunately that's all I can tell you for now as I've really not sat down with it in any great way to experiment.

P.S.- Keyboard.
Samsung Customer Support got back to me to confirm that their VG-KBD2000/XU keyboard will indeed work with this Evo kit :-)
I hope that helps those of you that like using the browser, though I've no idea on whether it will help in your social media apps as I've not tried.
Have a great day all & Happy Viewing :-).
Bad points:
The remote control light beam tends to wander off, but if you push up against the edge of the screen until you are pointing the remote straight at it again then it will correct itself, until it wanders off again lol.

Brightness.
I seem to be having issues with brightness randomly changing, but I only notice this occasionally from the computer feed, though this runs through the same surround amp as everything else, so not sure what the issue is or where the cause lies.

Cone thing, do you use it?
I'd not set up the ir blaster ?? cone thing, when I first had the TV, but during the set up it asks you if you would like to pair the device if you require to use it with a Sky remote I think it said?? I couldn't find it & so had to choose to ignore this option

Gesture & voice control came on, not sure if because of previous settings or by default, so you may wish to check if you don't require them. we had issue with it suddenly appearing on screen when we were watching TV, I guess it was picking up on the voice on screen.
