Summary: Do not purchase Samsung Plasma products!! This Plasma TV lasted less than 30 months and developed the well documented "Blue Ribbon" issue when the picture had a white background. As of this date, Samsung has indicated that no relieve is available to me.
Summary: The actual performance of this product is excellent! But, you have to buy the extended warranty because the screen panel, which is the majority of the inside of the television will most likely fail! Almost to the month from date of delivery, this fault happened to me.
Summary: Owned the TV for over a year (out of warranty). Dark pinkish, not black, bands have appeared across the top and occasionally elsewhere. They appear to be getting worse. I will have to call for repair but it's out of my pocket. What happened to products that lasted for years? This is just wrong.
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.
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.
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...
Summary: Product worked for all of 7 days. No picture whatsoever. Samsung was contacted and while the TV is under warranty I'm still waiting to be contacted as to when service will be provided. Will not be purchasing any Samsung products in the future.
Summary: TV had great picture when it worked, but it broke after 4 months. Samsung sent 2 repairmen who could not fix it. We have now spent another 2 months trying to get a refund. The service support is a joke, they just can't make a decision quickly.

Summary: Do not buy this TV. I purchases this very expensive, $2,700, Samsung 58 inch Plasma HD television model number PN58C8000 and it arrived with a cracked screen. Amazon promptly replaced it, but four months after the purchase the screen cracked during normal use.
