Great tv ruined by horrible buzzing

H. Le, Amazon
7 February 2012
  • Summary: The Samsung d8000 has specs that blow other TVs away. Image quality, customization, ease of use, remote control and net app features are second to none. This is a great tv, without a doubt. Unfortunately, the entire tv is ruined by an annoying and persistent buzzing, that is focused on the area directly from the center. If you lie down to one side or watch from an angle, you wont hear it.

BUZZING

Kevin, Amazon
23 December 2011
  • Summary: Plasma TV #1 Received this plasma from Amazon and it was a very smooth process. However upon setup there was a buzzing sound, loudest when watching from the middle of the set and quiet from the sides. It was so loud I had to turn the volume to around 15 to suppress the buzz. This is much louder than I normally watch TV and during any quiet scene the buzzing returned ruining shows and movies. I called samsung and they recommended a technician come out for repair.

Overpowering buzzing noise

Devil's Advocate, Amazon
18 November 2011
  • Summary: This is not the usual electrical hum or the sound of cooling fans. The buzzing noise happens when the panel itself turns on but not nessicarily when the tv is powered on so it isn't a control board issue. Additionally I use a power conditioner so it is not simple emf interference. Regrettably this is no small issue as the noise fills the room and in order to overpower it the volume of the television has to be quite high.

Great picture...Awesome product...Unfinished features.

Matt J. Lalumiere, Amazon
9 October 2011
  • Summary: After looking and reviewing many TVs ...I was settled on the Samsung D8000 series...The toughest part was deciding was the size. I am glad I saved the $400 because this TV will probably get replaced sooner than expected after spending a good penny. Forgive me in advance if I am speaking some ignorance here - but the TV comes with no printed manual - you have to use the "e-manual" on the TV to learn what it can and cannot do.

Unimpressed

Ivan Avramov, Amazon
28 August 2011
  • Summary: I bought this from Paul's TV (fulfilled by Amazon). It arrived with a cracked screen(10"+ star in top corner) with no damage on the box. Not sure what explanation for this may be. After refusing the delivery, I called up the local store (Magnolia) and ordered one from there. My mistake was that we never actually saw one in person. As soon as we plugged it in, both my wife and I noticed subtle but noticeable brown tint.

"As TV prices decrease, so does quality"

  • Pros: 3-D image and conversion
  • Cons: A The unit generates extreme heat. The RC is one of the worst I've ever used. Speakers are useless and connection of external ones require a receiver/amplifier unlike the Bravia which had preamplified outputs Service has bee

"Two Samsung plasma TVs in less than five months"

Virginia_Merkin, CNET
30 March 2011
  • Pros: Picture Quality (for now) and Aesthetic Appeal. The bezel is darker than the online pictures and goes very well with the stand. Very nice looking TV.
  • Cons: Poor Quality Overall. My six-day-old set already needs repair--the HDMI inputs have stopped working. Netflix application doesn't remain activated. The Dolby Digital output is not available.
