First :) and now :(

RLM, Amazon
7 March 2011
  • Summary: This tv is the best I had come across in my lengthy research of televisions. At first I was against buying a 3D tv though the stunning 2D picture quality turned me around. I now enjoy both options of viewing. I do not write reviews, though and writing this one as a warning. This tv is beautiful. I however would never have bought this plasma version, if I had not been constantly told that burn in was a thing of the past for these newer model plasma.

Arrived with a Badly Cracked Screen

billflag "Ride On", Amazon
4 December 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this TV despite customer feedback about cracked screens. Unfortunately, when I received my TV, it too had screen cracks on the top left and right and along the bottom. I've given the TV an average rating when it may well deserve a top rating, because this is the only way I can pass the information on to other customers.

Noisy 3D

Alexandre Grigoriev, Amazon
19 November 2010
  • Summary: Received the TV, Samsung BD-C5900 1080p 3D Blu-ray Disc Player and Samsung SSG-P2100X/ZA (IMAX/Dragon) 3D Starter Kit, Black . Some background. Plasma panels pixels can't generate different shades, so they need to use so-called dithering. For temporal dithering, they refresh each frame a few times. This TV uses 600 Hz subframe rate, so each frame is refreshed 10 times. Each pixel can be turned on for 0 to 10 times per frame; this creates 10 grades of brightness.

Wonderful Television that is Not Perfect

Keynote, Amazon
24 April 2010
  • Summary: I have to say that the picture quality on this television is almost perfect. I have had many televisions ranging from Samsung LED 55UNC7000 to Panasonic V10 plasma. Out of all of them, this television has the best picture quality. The black levels are super and the video processing is excellent. The remote control is really nice and is backlit. I really like Samsung's PQ, especially when it comes to color saturation.
