Summary: The picture was obviously great but there was a huge buzz directly in front of the screen where I sit about 12-15 feet away. The buzz would overpower any low volume scenes in whatever I was watching. I spoke to Samsung 3 times and while they were very nice and tried to be helpful, their suggestions did not work (tried lowering brightness, contrast, and plug directly into the wall).
Summary: This television is being returned for the second time. There are 3 modes in which to watch a program... Standard, Movie, and Dynamic. You cannot watch any satellite program in movie or dynamic mode or it will distort all dark colors and background. If you play a movie in standard mode, it is very dark. It is horrible! I have upgraded to a pn64E7000, and I hope it will be better.
Summary: The good: very good 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 subtitles. 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 did a lot of research before buying and came across lots of reviews complaining about buzzing. Thinking that the complainers would be more likely to post than the satisfied customers, I thought the odds of actually getting buzzed would be low. But unfortunately I too now have a buzzer. The sound isn't as shrill as crickets on a hot summer's night, but the audio level is about the same. I feel like I'm watching TV outside when this thing gets going.
Summary: I do not write reviews. But I could not restrain myself in this case. After having a Samsung Plamsa TV for 2 years, the screen made a pop sound and cracked while I was watching it. 2 quarter sized cracks in the bottom left. The picture went out and only the sound was working. I have found no recourse since. I've researched and researched, and researched some more and found many who had the same problem, but no one who made any progress with Samsung.
