Easy kit to install, overall no glitches when installing on my ES8000 65 inch tv. Remote will take a little getting use too, but pointing on screen with remote seems to be v era accurate and remote microphone also seems more sensitive.

Pros: software/hardware upgrade in a box
Cons: expensive
I will start by saying that the Evolution kits are not for everybody. For those that use a PS3/4 or Xbox360/One as their media hub, you will not gain much here unless you're using the smart tv for its smart hub. The major benefits you get when you install/upgrade an evolution kit is.
1. Updates your TV's smart platform to a 5-panel smart hub so you can enjoy enhancements to your existing smart TV features. (keyword here is features not improve picture/panel quality)
2. You get a new Smart Touch remote; if you have the old generic remote or don't like the remote from 2013 then you should upgrade to this new smart remote.
3. 1.5GHz quad-core processor along with 1.5GB memory promotes optimal performance for apps and games on the smart hub.
4. HDMI 2.0 with HDCP 2.2 support-Supports sharp high-definition.
Now that the features have been clarified a bit, let me also specify some other models that may not show as being compatible on the website but are.
Compatible With:
LED ES7500/8000/9000, F7500/8000
PDP E7000/8000, F8500
SUPPORTED MODELS
PN51F8500AF, PN60F8500AF, PN64F8500AF, UN46F7500AF, UN46F8000BF, UN55F7500AF, UN55F8000BF, UN60F7500AF, UN60F8000BF, UN65F8000BF, UN75F8000AF

So far I have many new features. The interface is awesome. Apps took a few trys to load...except Netflix. Nothing I try makes this app work. This is a must feature for many. Help with this and the rating goes up.

Pros: new remote, improved ventilation
Cons: no netflix
The new remote control is a great advancement. The web browser works better than the 2012 or 2013 versions. There are air vents on the side of the module which allow the heat to disperse -- something that the SEK-1000 could have benefitted from. However there is currently no Netflix availability when using this upgrade evolution kit. This is a deal breaker for me and I have shelved my SEK-2000 until this is remedied. Additionally, I found the sound customizer to be a bit "buggy" and not as good as the SEK-1000/ZA version.

Cons: Did not meet expectations
I have the 2012 model UN55ES7500F and was excited to get the 2014 evolution kit to update my Smart Hub interface and add some extra processing power to the tv. The kit was easy to install when the tv finally recognized it (took about 5 tries of inserting and removing). The new Smart Hub was nice and the remote that comes with it is really nice. However, I had several problems after installing. I reconnected the tv to my wireless network and was initially able to use Youtube with no problems. A couple of hours later, I tried watching content on the Explore 3D app (which I've done numerous times before the upgrade), and every time I hit Play, the app would say "format not supported." I thought this was odd as the initial start up page and content info were showing in 3D as they should. I then tried using Pandora and Youtube and was unable to connect to either, despite the tv saying I was indeed connected to the wireless network. The motion and voice control is supposed to be improved and more user friendly; however, mine seemed to be more sluggish and less responsive. Very disappointing. I finally decided to uninstall the kit and see what happened. After doing so, all the apps began working again; Pandora and Youtube connected right away and Explore 3D played its content without any problems. I did not buy the 2013 evolution kit because I wanted to wait for any kinks and bugs to be worked out (as there always are some with new technology). Sadly, it seems Samsung still has some work to do. Perhaps I received a bad unit, but at this point, I will be returning this product for a refund, and I will continue to enjoy my "old" tv.
