Summary: Love the tv only slight problem I have is with the remote. I found for DVR it is not easy to just pause and stop or play. Besides that I do like the other functions on the remote but it takes some time to get used to.
Plasma still carries the torch for picture quality.

Summary: This is an initial review of the 64" model. Possible updates to follow. First, ordered from Amazon, delivery was prompt and safe, price was as good as anyone I could find. Unit is well packed for shipping from Samsung. I replaced a 50" Samsung plasma with this set. Here are my first impressions.............
Summary: First off, I have zero complaints about this TV from a hardware standpoint. I bought a plasma tv for the picture quality and it's been a great upgrade from my previous 4 year old LED. I have a few cautionary points to make regarding the software and compatibility side of things. I don't claim to be any kind of tech genius but I'm fairly tech savy-- maybe there are some workarounds to these things, but they're not evident and caused some big headaches the first few weeks...
Summary: I am pleased with this set. The picture quality is great. I thought it would've been too dim for a well light living room but its holding up well. it does generate heat after a few minutes of being on. I would've liked to see the 3D be more of a feature than a gimmick, the 3D glasses are flimsy. Don't buy it for the 3D option.
Summary: I've had this TV for about a month. Here are my impressions: The picture is very good. However, I can is definitely notice some buzzing when there are bright objects on the screen. For example, watching a day baseball game can causing buzzing. Disappointing and annoying, but not a deal breaker. The black levels are quite good and I haven't noticed any loss of detail in dark scenes. I also have not noticed any image retention.
Summary: Since what I really care about is how it looks and works, we start with that... If you want a great looking TV at a great price, this is it! It is really spectacular, and the 3D really works well when you are watching a 3D source. The 2D to 3D upconversion is interesting, but I get tired of watching it that way, since it isn't really broadcast that way, and lacks the spectacular nature of a program designed in 3D, but that is not the fault of this or any other TV.
Summary: The Good: The picture quality is stunning. For me the difference between plasma and everything else is like night and day quite literally when it comes to blacks. After breaking my previous Samsung PN51D6500 plasma which this is replacing since i cracked the screen I was shopping around for something else and I couldn't even look at the LED TVs that are all the rage now for more than a few minutes, even with the brightness set to the lowest setting on most of them it was...
Summary: I have a 2011 model Samsung PN63C7000 (an awesome unit), but this has much improved picture quality. Perhaps it's because the screen is smaller, but great picture quality nonetheless, and the sound (from TV speakers) is surprisingly good. The TV starts in a blink of an eye and everything is working as expected. The older Samsung couldn't play m2ts files (from a bluray structured folder) via usb on portable HHD, but this model can.
