Be Careful: Major Problems with Streaming Services like Netflix and Amazon Prime
21 September 2014
Summary: I bought the 2012 version a couple of years ago for a little under $1900. In February of this year (after the warranty expired!) the built-in streaming services completely stopped working - both Netflix and Amazon Prime. I checked with Netflix, and the problem is definitely with the Samsung TV.
Summary: The picture on this TV is awesome and the 3D effect is very good with no ghosting but the motion controls are annoying. Sometimes the onscreen motion control menu just pops up and stays there for a minute or so. I think the TV is mistaking my face for my hand or something.
Summary: I would highly recommend this plasma TV over any LED or LCD. The picture is probably the best you will get without spending 3 or 4 times the money. I purchased a Sharp 70" top of the line before this TV. It was bad. The Sharp (not so sharp) was good at best in HD and really bad in SD.
One of the top two 60" Plasma TV's on the market period...

Summary: I have had many plasma TV's over the years. Plasma TV's have come a long way in terms of reliability and maintenance IMHO. I have owned and still do own two 50" Panasonic Plasmas and a 58" Samsung Plasma. Now with the addition of this 60" for my "man room" I am very happy.
Summary: I will admit some of the bells & whistle on this unit we will not use. With that said. I have to say outstaning picture we have watched blu-ray 3D, HD-DVD, and regular definition TV on this thing and all of it looks great. the 3D is awesome i find myself trying to follow objects off the screen.
Best TV I've ever owned Picture is perfect, 3D is perfect, and the high tech features will blow you away.

Summary: GREAT! Samsung is at the top of their game. I've gone all Samsung, Phone, Tablet, and Bluray Player. Right now they are the game and their 8000 series TV is as good as it gets! Also there is no so called "hum", don't know what some reviewers are talking about.
Summary: I have bough previous high-end model PN58C8000 via amazon.com. The picture was ok for first few months, but I started showing annoying magenta hue on white background. Samsung did replace my panel within 1 year warranty, however after my warranty completely expired after15 months, the problem came...
