Summary: We had this TV for only 3 years when suddenly the bottom half of the screen would begin to flicker to black after the TV was on for about 90 minutes, sometimes sooner. I searched the internet to find that I'm not alone with this problem and from what I can tell the fix might just be a cold or poor...
Summary: This WAS a great TV. Awesome picture and didn't have any problems until about 6 months ago. Started to have either the bottom half or the top half cut in and out. With some research I knew I would have to replace the Y boards soon. Not a huge deal right?
Summary: Yes the Plasma looks great and was reliable for the first few years, but the panel went bad a month ago. I paid $2,000 (plus tax)in Nov/2007 and I would need to invest another $1,100 to replace the panel.
Summary: Excellent quality TV. OTA (Over The Air) HD picture looks great. Also has two RF (coax) inputs - one for OTA and one for cable TV. The only downside is the lack of Clear QAM (unscrambled cable HD) signals.
Summary: I had previously bought the 42 inch version of this Samsung plasma unit and it simply wasn't as big a screen as we had hoped. We bought it at Best Buy and to return the 42 inch and get a 50 inch meant spending over $1,000 more. A big gap.
Summary: I turned it on right after the delivery guy unpacked it. Loud buzzing noise comes from the back when I switch the power on. Amazon directed me to call Samsung first. I called them and they proceeded to tell me that the noise was normal but i would not take any of that.
Summary: Have read all the reviews on avs forum and amazon about the buzz problem on this set, I still decided that I was gonna take the odds. It has been 3 months since the problem was first reported and I thought Samsung should have come aware of it and fixed the problem. Well, SO I THOUGHT.
Summary: I purchased my Plasma on 11/06...But waited a while to give my review... I researched plasma tv set's for a while,before making my decision...priced them at major store's like...Bestbuy,Circuit City,PC Richard......Was kind of leaning to the Panasonic-50" Plasma..
Summary: I sent a month reading reviews and in circuit city and best buy looking at plasmas. The samsung had the best picture and best setup. Amazon had the best price--shipping included and no sales tax--beat CC by $800. Ordered on a Wend and had it in one week. Shipping service was phenomenal.
