Reviews and Problems with Samsung PS51D7000 / PN51D7000

Great 2D/3D Picture, Poor Product design
21 August 2013
Summary: I have three plasma TVs: a Panasonic TH-42X60U, a Panasonic TC-P50G10, and a Samsung PN51D7000. The 42 and 51 have been professionally calibrated. For the 50, I use the THX setting, sort of. I use a single Logitech Hamony One remote control to control all three systems. The Panasonic 42 is used in the bedroom hanging on a wall above the French doors that lead into the master bath.
Pros: Great 2D/3D Picture
Cons: Poor Product design: overheats causing premature failure of set and rapid reduction of picture quality - all for the vanity of being thin.
Summary: We went down to that yellow tag box store and purchased a Panasonic Viera TC-P50ST30 and I was all excited. That night while watching it however I noticed that movement blurred. Hockey pucks, race cars, action scenes...and god help you in a panoramic zoomed out movie shot. Needless to say I was gutted, especially since my days or research had indicated that the Panasonic was amazing.
Summary: I bought this HDTV through Amazon on 1/1/12 and received shipment on 1/6. Seller through Amazon was Huppins of Spokane WA. TV setup was easy and the picture and sound was amazing.....for 24 hours. At that point, the set went dead and would not power up. I contacted Huppins who immediately conferenced me in with Samsung service to schedule a service call. Earliest appointment was for 1/13.
"LIKE NEW" SAMSUNG TV PURCHASED FROM AMAZON WAREHOUSE-BUYER BEWARE!!

Summary: We purchased this tv from Amazon Warehouse in "Like new" condition. The tv, when delivered, was not in the original box, but there was no damage to the box. It was delivered by Pilot. After the driver left, I pulled off the packing slip which said that he was supposed to open the box and inspect the tv to make sure there was no damage and that the tv was working. This was not done.
Summary: I have had the PN51D7000 for about a month and to this point, I'm very happy with this HDTV. We already have 2 Samsung LCD HDTV's but this is my first plasma and I found it very noticeable that there are differences in an LCD image versus plasma. My initial impressions were not immediately positive but a lot of that has to do with being accustomed to an LCD image.
Summary: Ok, so my old Samsung FPT5084 50" plasma that I got back in 2007 finally crapped out...well the panel went bad, which after talking to the repair company, they told me that they see a lot of plasma panels go bad after 3-4 years especially on Samsung and Panasonic models. Fortunately, the company that I purchased an extended warranty for the tv with off of Amazon was very cool and ended up refunding me for the tv because I guess a new panel was just as or more expensive...
TV Blew Out Upon Powering On - Samsung CS Horrendous
26 December 2011
Summary: I received this product last Friday, as Pilot delivered it when I got home from work. I was very excited to set it up but let it sit for a few hours to adjust to room temperature. After finally setting it up and plugging it in, I was ready to turn it on. I hit the power button on the remote and BOOM - a bright flash came across the right side of the tv and it instantly went black.
Summary: I have had this TV for 4 months now - and so far, I am fairly satisfied with it. Pros: 1. Easy setup and intuitive usage. 2. 3D and HD quality is great. 3. Speakers are good enough for regular use. 4. WiFi works flawlessly - never gets disconnected. 5. A wide range of apps for video (hulu, netflix, vudu, etc.) - we do not have any cable connection. We only use the buit-in apps for all our TV time. 6.
Summary: 1/29/12 I have had this television nearly two months, great TV! Beautiful picture, great to watch football and basketball, and everything else. I highly recommend it, especially through Amazon. I've used the 3D a few times, maybe more when the grandchildren come to visit, but most of the things we watch are still 2D and we just don't take the time to fool around with the glasses. Still five stars. 12/27/11 twenty-five days and love it!
Summary: Have had the TV for a week at this point and am nothing but satisfied. Really impressive looking television with great features. I do have to warn you about buying from Paul's TV on Amazon.com. I had always heard that Amazon had some of the best prices for TVs and found that to be true when I did my research. I bought the D7000 for a very good price and was initially really satisfied with my purchase.
