Summary: Stay away from Samsung TVs, reseach before U buy!!!!!!!!!! Just started using and red noise onscreen. Well, not much to say about this problem except this is not the only model with a bad repair history.
Excerpt: I just love my new Samsung Flat Screen TV. This TV by Samsung has very good picture quality and very good sound quality as well. It is very lightweight and i love the slim design. It looks very stylish in my living room. I also really like the great features which come with the TV such as Wifi and a variety of apps I use to multi-task while watching my favourite movie. But the best feature of this TV would have to be its 3D capabilities.
Summary: I wasn't really in the market for a 3d television, but I was checking reviews and prices for the largest Samsung plasma set I could find. I found this one refurbished for just over $1000 here at Amazon and couldn't resist, especially after reading all of the positive reviews. It shipped in perfect shape and was a marvel to behold when we took it out of the box. Setup was very easy.
Summary: Update 1/8/2013: Samsung eventually replaced this model with a PN59D7000 in the summer of 2011. About 2 months ago the replacement TV started to develop these pink blobs on two portions of the screen. The pink blobs ran vertically from the top of the screen to the bottom and were about a 1/3 of the way from the right and left sides of the panel.
Summary: I have had the PN58C680 for 2 weeks. Could not be happier. The reviews on this board convinced me that it was not only a great deal but a great Tv. I have a 50 inch Samsung Plasma for 5 years that I wanted to upgrade and this was it. The price is unbelievable for this size, no apps is probably why, but I don't need that with an existing computer. I have no buzzing sound as I had on my 50 inch. The only adjustment I made was increasing the Cell Light from 10 to 14.
Excerpt: The reception in this TV is crystal clear. The audio is very fine. Viewing 3D movies on this TV is like you can actually touch what is protruding from the screen. Extraordinary! Exceptionally clear. Sleek and refined. Marvelous!
Summary: This TV is great. It arrived in great condition. The picture is fantastic. I've had people say that it is the best picture that they have ever seen in a big screen tv. The 3D is really neat so much that friends who have seen it bring over their friends so that they can see it. I am totally satisfied with this tv.
Summary: First let me say that i agree with some of the reviews on amazon.com, their is a slight buzz with this plasma . . does this undermine the quality of the picture? NO . . . is it annoying? YES . . But most people dont just have the TV on without any sound . . . and yes the speakers make the buzz go away. So that is NO problem for me at all. Secondly this thing is HUGE, 58" is big BIG . . . we had a 52" and its amazing the difference in 6" . .
Summary: After waiting impatiently for 8 days to receive my new television it came broken inside the box! To add to my depression, I now find out that Best Buy no longer sells the same TV. This was my first experience buying a large electronic item online and I don't think I'll do it again.
