once a loyal fan!

Tommy Lee, Amazon
27 May 2014
  • Summary: I have been a huge samsung fan for years. Always treated fair. Called about a well known capacitor problem and went through three levels of customer service. Told class action suit timeline expired. I could pay labor and they would pay parts. Labor in the hundreds parts about $30.00. Unless they make the labor and part good. Never buy again. The capacitor was part of a class action settlement that samsung admitted faulty.

Faulty product- thermal cracking. Samsung not covering.

twachner, CNET

  • Summary: Do not buy a plasma from Samsung. They are faulty and Samsung is not standing behind them. Search "thermal expansion crack" and you can see for yourself. I just threw away $1000.
  • Pros: Great TV when it works.
  • Cons: Interior of screen cracked after 5 months. Samsung says it is user-caused. BS. This is the same as 100's of other complaints- ONLY on Samsung TV's. Hmm, that seems like a product defect to me.

The internal cracking problem has NOT been solved

Nicole Thornton, Amazon
1 June 2013
  • Summary: My title says it all. I have not contacted Samsung YET but from what I've read, I don't expect them to resolve the issue. Basically, my son went to his dads for the weekend and left it on in the playroom. When he went in there after school on Monday afternoon, there was a huge spider-like crack that you cannot feel from the outside and it wouldn't come on.

Screen cracked on its own...

l.p.s., CNET
7 March 2013
  • Summary: I got this TV for my kids to play X-box on and to watch TVs and movies in the basement. For about 22 months, it worked absolutely great, and the picture was fantastic. Until, one day, a crack appeared, sort of under the glass. There was no apparent damage to the outer glass, and though I suspected maybe something hit the TV, my kids (who are honest and responsible) insisted it just stopped working while they were playing a game.
  • Pros: Had a great picture, when it used to work.
  • Cons: Not reliable, if it cracks, the repair will cost twice as much as the set costs new. Not sure they will even cover it under warranty, from what I've seen elsewhere.

Too Much Glare

Maki_the_Cat, Amazon
2 May 2012
  • Summary: Bought this for the kitchen. The screen glare from the windows and lights made the set unwatchable. I have other plasma tv's that do not have this problem. Bought from ABT through Amazon. They wanted $120 for return shipping which is 25% of the set cost. Lesson learned - only buy sets sold directly by Amazon.

Muy baja calidad de sonido

kishorfarm, Samsung
17 November 2012
  • Summary: La calidad de imagen así como el diseño y las especificaciones del producto son bastante buenas, pero todo eso no sirve de nada si, como es el caso, la calidad de sonido es tan mala que es imposible utilizarlo con normalidad. Y por lo que veo no es un problema de mi unidad, he leido quejas en foros y parece que es algo generalizado. Tengo un LCD de 46'' también Samsung y la calidad de sonido es excelente, me pregunto que han hecho mal con este modelo.
  • Pros: Económico, Color realista
  • Cons: Mala calidad, Expectativas no superadas
