"Enjoy the picture while it lasts - it won't."

  • Pros: Great display when new.
  • Cons: Diffusion (pink/purple pixelation on light backgrounds) will kill the experience in about a year plus/minus six months.

Purple Banding as well, extremely disappointed

JGam, Amazon
19 March 2013
  • Summary: Just wanted to step in for the group having issues after 2 years of use as well. I am now experiencing the extreme purple banding on the display which is cost prohibitive to get repaired. I was already disappointed over the change in the 3d glasses that support the TV that Samsung made now having the TV failing with no recourse is even worse. For the price paid on this TV the failure is unacceptable based on the limited use this TV receives normally.

"Great picture quality, but poor 3D/panel failed in 1 yr"

jphartung, CNET
28 September 2012
  • Pros: Picture quality was fantastic when the product was received, with rich color and great black/contrast. Great while it lasted.
  • Cons: The 3D quality is poor, intermittent failure requiring active 3D glasses to be turned off and on to reset. Panel failed twice in 2 years.

Samsung is the worst...

JP, Amazon
24 August 2011
  • Summary: First TV was broken but Amazon was great and replaced asap. After a year of use the TV started showing red lines on the right side of the screen. Samsung customer service from top to bottom has been a total nightmare. Their tech support has no clue and just sends you from one idiot to the next. They act like you purchase a $20 dollar item instead of a 2,000 one.

"Great while lasted but 6 months after purchase it Broke"

craigrpeters, CNET
8 August 2011
  • Pros: Awesome picutre, bright, great web apps
  • Cons: Apparently Samsung TVs are very fragile. Samsung warranty service is non-existant -- seriously, read all the horror stories about broken TVs (even still under warranty like mine) and Samsung just ignores customers.

Samsung plasmas will crack

Rafael, Amazon
18 June 2011
  • Summary: Me too am a victim of the dreaded Samsung plasma cracks, filled a claim, tech came over and wrote down on the inspection note the TV was clearly not damaged on the outside, there was no point of impact but the plasma module inside the TV had 2 spider cracks. He took pics and sent them to Samsung and got denied.

DAMN, why me!...CRACKED SCREEEN!!!

Dweezy, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: Initially, I was going to write a book about how I was deceived by Amazon and its affiliate regarding the TVs condition and the promotional financing offer for this tv but I will take the high road for now and just say beware of purchasing this model because like many other reviewers I received the Big Boy "PN58C8000" just to find about 30+ cracks in the TV's screen.
