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: An amazing plasma TV! Wanted to upgrade from a bulky and heavy projection TV upstairs to new flat screen TV to make a media room in finished basement. Wanted latest 3D technology that wouldn't become obsolete so soon.
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: 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: 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.
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: 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.
Summary: Networked TV Issues: Internet Apps have a long way to go. They are laggy, run in the foreground and can cause you too have to wait for timeouts (or turn off the unit). Pandora is a nice to have and the Yahoo bar apps are nicely done but some of the rest are just too slow.
Summary: Folks my review title says all you need to know about the Samsung PN58C8000 58-Inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV (Black) . I bought mine 3 months ago from Amazon & have been extremely satisfied with the deep blacks, accurate colors & incredible detail from this HDTV.
Summary: This was a great value. Samsung has really improved the plasma tv quality exceeding the quality over the latest LED/LCD lineup. There is nothing better on the market today at this price point. Amazon was wonderful to deal with.
