Tv broke less than 2 years from purchase

Ken Z., Amazon
20 August 2014
  • Summary: Bought this tv less than 2 years ago. It stopped working yesterday. Certainly not the quality I was expecting for a $2,000 tv. Support was useless and rude.

  • Summary: Do not buy Samsung Plasmas. Poor quality parts and limited warranty. Mine died 2 months after warranty expired and I'm stuck with a $2000 paper weight.

Horrible Buzz

RonF, Amazon
15 March 2013
  • 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).

PN64E550 is very poor quality

Darryl Owen, Amazon
3 March 2013
  • 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.

AVOID SAMSUNG PLASMA - BURN_IN AFTER A FEW MONTHS

BadApple, Amazon
8 November 2012
  • 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.

Sam-Buzz-Sung

lisa lee, Amazon
3 October 2012
  • 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.

Samsung Plasma TV Warning

C. Scaffidi, Amazon
30 August 2012
  • 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.
