Stopped working in less than 2 years

The Reviewer, Amazon

  • Summary: Was working fine then all of a sudden just wouldn't turn on. Apparently Samsung uses faulty capacitors. They even settled a class action law suit that accuses them of doing so. I'm never buying another Samsung tv again.

Warranty recommendation

  • Summary: I bought my 43inch in August of 2011. Picture great, sound great, really liked the tv. Now 15 months later I am watching TV and the picture just goes out, black screen. I go to hit the power button to turn it back on and nothing. So I unplug the unit and let it sit for a minute, plug it back in and you can hear clicking noises and the red light flashes, but still no picture. I did some research and found that this problem has occured in other Samsung brands.

Nice

  • Summary: Good quality with Blu-Ray and HD cable. Really enjoy it. Sometimes if you stand right up to the TV you can see artifacting in the black. It's much more noticeable in the 3D mode than normal HD. The 3D looks pretty good. I think the active shutter (this TV) looks better than the new passive technology (new Vizios, etc) right now, but the shutters can make your head hurt after a while. Overall, you're getting a very nice TV for very cheap.

Great first 3D TV

Andy, Amazon
19 January 2012
  • Summary: I have to say that I am very impressed with this TV, especially for the price. The picture quality is outstanding, both in 2D and 3D. The colors are very vivid, the blacks appear quite deep and I don't notice any blurring or artifacting to speak of. It is also worth stating that I have not experienced the glare problem that others have reported, but it should be noted that there is very little light in our living room.

Damaged after less than 1 year

New Mommie, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: This TV was bought for $729.00 back in April 2011. We looked for the best deal and amazon had it. We do not have anything to say about the excellent service that Amazon provides but, Samsung is another story. After the TV stopped working (basically turned off itself and never turned on again). We called Samsung who scheduled us with a Technical service.

"It's Amazonic"

  • Summary: I have to say, I haven't Slept since I receive My TV and Cable both an Day Early before their arrived Date and I'm Enjoying them Both. Amazon haven't let Me down yet, alwaye surprising Me with Their Quality and Service, but Abt Electronics deserve just as much Love. My 43' Samsung 3D Flat Screen Plasma TV is just Amazing or Amazonic...Lol. Thank You Amazon and Abt Electronics, I'm enjoying Blu'Ray, Cable and My PlayStation 3 All and One with My TV.

2 months and already broken

Jenna "Jenna", Amazon
5 December 2011
  • Summary: Loved this TV when I got it. Great picture and sound. Really an upgrade from my old tube tv. But a little over 2 months of enjoyment stopped suddenly. The screen went black and now all I have is a clicking sound and the power light blinking off and on. I checked at the Samsung website. This problem is noted in their trouble shooting guide. I wonder why they don't fix the product if they know it is this unreliable.

Pleasant Surprise

A. E. Avendano, Amazon
3 December 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this TV to replace a 32 inch lcd Samsung, which I was really dissapointed with and had to return. The reasons: After asking a lot of people everyone said all Samsung's had the best panels. THIS IS NOT TRUE. Samsung makes some bad tv's like all other manufacturers. The tv showed some fainted lines every time the camera panned, which became annoying after a while. I returned the tv and purchased this one and paid a bit more. Extremely happy I did.
