Pros: size! picture quality, myriad image parameters to play with and adjust, "thinness", price right now (December 2010) compared to other models, very cool remote and easy, intuitive operation and menu system
Cons: motion judder canceller on or off there are artifacts around fast moving objects across the screen and this is one major problem you will have to decide if you can live with!
Summary: The picture quality is simply amazing, once the picture settings are tuned correctly. The default settings that come with the various picture modes are quite bad. I was initially worried that I might have a defective unit. The colors were just way off. Fortunately I found professional calibration results for this model on the Web [...]. If you're not happy with the color reproduction of this model, I strongly suggest that you give these settings a try.
Summary: I have been a 3D nut since the 50s with movies, comic books what ever. With that said I have been reading the 3d TV reviews since 2009 and checking the TVs out in the stores. I have seen all the problems past reviews have noted in the various brands of TVs in the stores. After a year of research I bought a Sammy PN58C8000 from Amazon and I am blown away. After 3 weeks I have not see any of the problems reported on other models and brands.
Summary: My old Sony Trinitron FINALLY died and I was SOOOOOOO happy to replace it. My wife thought I was just trying to find an excuse to buy a new Flatscreen TV. LOL I was happy to upgrade and couldn't wait to buy a new HDTV. So I set my sights on a flat screen TV with excellent picture quality, feature rich and internet capable. I'm a big movie watcher so picture quality was of the utmost importance.
