Summary: I want to give this TV 5 stars, really I do. But it just crapped out on me, a couple months outside the one year warranty no less. The issue? It won't turn on. I went to turn it on last night, and there was a huge blue light that came from the back of the TV along with a horrible crackling sound (like electricity arcing). Then came the acrid smell of fried electronics. My heart plummeted.
Summary: The good: excellent image quality, better than their LED TVs. The bad: After using it for 4 months the screen is already burned, in the areas where the TV displays the subtitles for All Share (DLNA, network, USB) content. While I understand burn-in or retention from watching CNN tickers, games, fixed logos, etc. this was caused by the TV's own firmware.
Summary: i bought samsung 60" TV 10 years ago, I got problem after about 10 days, the TV turn off after 10 minutes, i got fixed it, then nothing happy to this May 2012, it turns off after several minutes. so I changed to the latest NP60E7000, in May 2012, i got the similar problem today, the TV turn off every 4 minutes and turn on itself. I have to call and get fix again. I do not know if this is popular problem in samsung TV?
Summary: I bought the Samsung PN59D7000 59" Plasma 3D HDTV after exhaustive research. The TV was actually hailed as the TV of the year in some circles. I've been in the TV/Film industry for 20 years and knew enough to avoid plasma TV's due to a myriad of issues. However, after reading all of the reviews, and going to the store to check out the picture quality, I was frankly very impressed.
