Summary: Originally sold on the bright brilliant colors of the Samsung LCD and LED 3D HDTV's , I compared the Samsung Plasma 3D HDTV(PN58C8000) head to head at BestBuy using the same settings and same Blue-Ray movies (Avitar + Monsters&Aliens3D) and found the plasma to blow them all away.
Summary: Greetings, I have owned this 58 inch TV for 5 weeks and have obsessed over every stage - the research, buying (price) and now settings and picture quality and 3d testing. No television is perfect and this is important to realize as some reviews I have read seem to be searching for television...
Summary: I've had this 58" TV for a little over a month now and I am still amazed at the picture quality. For reference, I upgraded from a 60" 2007 Sony 60A200 rear projection television. When I was shopping for a new TV, I researched the subject for weeks.
Summary: I looked at many reviews and settled on the PN58C8000. I was replacing a 5 year old Sony HD rear projection. I wanted something thinner, so when you walk into the room you don't see a side of a TV. I leaned plasma given the response time, viewing angle, and value/$ relative to the LCD/LEDs.
Summary: just got this yesterday with the free glasses and 5900 3d player. I also purchased the usb wireless unit. the performance of this set is just outstanding. I had to set it up using my onkyo home theater system so it took a little over 1.5 hours.
Summary: The Samsung PN58C8000 58-Inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV has absolutely the best 2D picture I've ever seen. Because it's plasma it's equally viewable from all angles (unlike LED/LCD), plus has better color saturation and black levels than any LED/LCD, and yet somehow is much less expensive than LED/LCD.
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.
Summary: This set became the focal point of an all-new theatre system to replace one of the first DLP 1080p Sammys, with a 5.1 Infinity surround, from about 5 years ago we had done. Being an old Stereo Review go from many moons ago, I decided to take the plunge into a full 3D, yada-yada, state-of-the-art...
Summary: I recently purchased this TV along with a new Sound System (Aperion Intimus 4T Hybrid SD), A/V Receiver (Pioneer VSX-1120k) & Blu-Ray/SACD player (Sony BDP-S570) to go along with the Apple TV my wife got me for my birthday.
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.
