Hard to believe I've had it for 3 1/2 years, that's ancient in tech years!

  • Summary: I bought this on Black friday heavily discounted, rate 7.5/10 I love this TV, have had it for a long time. One of the earlier 3D TVs, works great in terms of 3D with video (usually played from a USB HD), or with 3D videogames (PS3 and Xbox360). I only have a few small negative things to say... During a 3-D film, the 3-D glasses (from this starter kit http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0049P1N26/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?

Wow - very impressed

  • Summary: After having an LED LCD that I wasn't impressed with at all, this plasma rocks. It is so clear and thin! The sound quality is surprisingly good for such a thin profile. I am glad I switched. Only negative would be an ever so slight buzz on certain programs. I keep it in Movie mode which minimizes the buzz however.

Samsung 63" Plasma 3-D Television

Ebay
5 January 2011
  • Summary: I never thought I would commit to another plasma in the 21st century. This new generation seem to have the beauty and the elegance matching performance and slickness reserved for LED-TVs. Looking forward to its 3D experience as I gather the kit necessary to make that a reality. Good choice and experience for me.

Fabulous picture and no buzz!

  • Summary: I have had this TV for 3 months now and still love it. The picture is simply gorgeous on HD and SD material. Deep blacks and accurate colors. There are some artifacts or ghosting on the 3D material, but I didn't buy the TV for the 3D capability, so that doesn't bother me. It is good enough on 3D. I have not had it calibrated yet and expect it will look even better once it is calibrated. There is no buzz.

  • Summary: I've had this T.V. for about 3 weeks now and all I can say is AWESOME!! The colors and clarity of the images on this beast are amazing,blacks are low enough to be enveloped in the content and I can watch the television at anytime of day and get a satisfying experience as there is a window directly opposite where I put this T.V.

The best 2D viewing (in a 3D body) at this time

B. Natarajan "kernat", Amazon

  • Summary: The TV does what it is supposed to for the most part. I also bought the 3dTV from samsung to go along with it (6900) For optimal calibration go to this site. I found it very helpful, and does the TV justice. [...] What I liked: - Lots of inputs, HDMIs, opticals, PC inputs and the like - Picture clarity and blacks are stunning, post calibration (football games in particular) - Panel does not get too warm, a huge plus, after extended viewing - Anynet function very good and...

Worthwhile TV.

  • Summary: I bought this exact model the PN50C8000. One might get the impression that it is silver. I'd call it a dark grey brushed metal look. Which is fine IMO. One thing that is not often publicized for some reason is the fact that plasma's are not even close to as bright as newer LCD models. This worried me a little. But when I got it; it took some tweaking but I was able to get exactly the color/brightness I wanted for normal viewing and 3d viewing.
