Good tv but could be better with more design effort

Summary: Pros: Excellent picture. Works as advertised. Sound amazingly good for such a slim tv. You may not need a sound bar if you are used to the sound from an old tube tv. The 3d is amazing, but it takes a while to get used to because of the edge effects and other issues that affect the realism, such as the fact that moving one's head does not change the apparent point of view. The 3d is full 1084p which makes it look better than the Lg 3D.
4 stars despite the Main Board required replacement

Summary: Pros: Great picture in either dark or bright environments. The wireless connection to the home network connected easily and handles most HD files w/o problems. Great for watching files saved onto the network PC. Occasionally loses connection and requires a PC reboot. Good sound for a TV. Cons; The major disappointment has been the keyboard on the remote, despite the major repair required. It has never delivered what was promoted. Apps.
Summary: After doing hours upon hours of research, I finally decided on the Samsung PN59D8000 and I am very pleased with it. The picture quality and color accuracy are both excellent. I watch a lot of sports in HD and so far, this TV has not let me down. Watching blu-ray DVDs is superb and gaming on it is pretty good too. The apps are pretty cool - like the ESPN app which works as a sports ticker so you can track all your teams/sports and scores while watching anything.
Summary: Let me begin by saying this is the best TV I've ever laid eyes on. I was skeptical that a TV of this size could maintain such quality at first. I was wrong. Now let's get to my review. If you're reading this and thinking of getting this on Amazon.. BEWARE of vendors using Manna Distribution for delivery services. Dealing with them was a nightmare and a half.
Summary: I just got this TV for a week. So, this is my first impression of this TV. It is very easy to install and set it up. It worked with my HD DVR DirecTV box right away. Then, I have to program my DirecTV remote to control this TV using DirecTV on screen setup menu. So, I can set aside my Samsung remote unless I need to use the smart TV features (Netflix, Youtube, ...).
Pros: I researched TVs for about a month before settling on this one and I'm glad I did. It has amazing picture quality, second to none. Streaming and internet services are comprehensive and work well plus the remote is pretty handy.
Cons: Unfortunately, TV brightness is noticeable factor with a bright room and is exacerbated when using 3D glasses. Light reflection is predominant and is somewhat of a nuisance and a possible game changer. Qwerty side of remote loses sync with television
Summary: Hi I bought this TV and installed yesterday in a wall; everything works very well; but I hear a noise coming from TV since I installed. I think It was the Cable signal, or power Line noise but I put filters (Noise suppressors) in every input and the buzz still there and at the same level.
