Flicker

George C. Glanzmann "Chris", Amazon
3 December 2011
  • Summary: I have had this TV for 17 months and I like it except for two things. First, the flicker when watching 3D with the shutter glasses is so bad that I stopped watching 3D. Although the system runs at 120 Hz it is 60 Hz per eye, so, before you buy a TV with this type of 3D technology make sure you cannot see 60 Hz flicker (not everyone can). I recently saw a LG 3D TV with passive glasses and I did not see flicker.

  • Pros: + Very good image quality + Exhaustive calibration options + Clear and nice menu interface + Very nice design (slim, titanium bezel, invisible speakers and buttons) + 2D to 3D + Lots of inputs
  • Cons: - Very, very sensitive to image retention - Limited apps (outside US and Korea) - Runs very hot (not good for hot summer days)

"Died in 4 days"

HAVIC, CNET
7 October 2010
  • Pros: Great picture, nice and slim
  • Cons: I had my parents by the 63" version of this tv and it died in 4 days. They had sound but no picture. A quick google showed this is a major problem with Samsung. http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=samsung+plasma+sound+no+pictu
