Summary: The reason I said this because the firmware for this TV actually ruins it. Unfortunantly I did a firmware upgrade after warranty and it ruined it (ghost image burn). I looked it up and Samsung has a 1008.3 firmware and voltage adjustment they need to do to fix the tv back to normal for a mere fee for $120 (what I was quoted for). Thank you Samsung for qreat service. I've tried the 800 and online chat.
Summary: bought it at Fry's Marketplace 2009...I will never buy another Samsung product. Since day one the picture has red clouds in the screen. I have researched and the word is, on plasma TVs they only last 4-5 years as the plasma gas runs out. The red is a sign that the plasma is going and it is more costly to repair than to replace. Nice! Like an $800.00 TV only lasts 4-5 years...WHAT??? Excuse me, but you can keep your inferior junk from Japan....
Summary: This $800.00 TV failed after only 2 1/2 years which is ABSOLUTELY UNACCEPTABLE. I could accept 4 or 5 years, but not 2 1/2 years. It developed a permanent 1 pixel red line running vertically on the screen. From my research this is a failure of the plasma display panel which is unrepairable. It is out-of-warrenty so bye-bye beautiful picture. Since I loved this TV it was babied from day one. Too bad..the gentle care didn't save it.
Summary: I initially wrote a great review and was very happy with the TV two years ago. I also purchased this TV in December of 2010. A little over a month ago the vertical line appeared on the right side of my screen. Of course it is out of warranty. I think any TV you buy should last more than 2 years! This is very troubling. I will NEVER buy a SAMSUNG TV again. I also have a Magnavox and a Panasonic - and had no problems with either.
Summary: My review is virtually the same as Celiac Dad's. I bought this TV in November 2010. Just last week the green/red vertical line appeared on the left side of the screen. When I called Samsung's certified repair company in our area, right away they said it wasn't even worth looking at. They would have to replace the panel which would cost $500 to $1000 dollars. I get the sense they have fielded calls about this TV before.
Summary: I purchased this TV at Christmas in 2010 so it's not quite 2 years old. The picture is excellent and I really like the deep blacks you see on Plasma TV's. However, the TV just started having an issue. Upon turning on the unit one day, a thin red, vertical line appeared on the left hand side of the screen. Shortly after, a blue thin vertical line appeared on the right hand side of the screen.
Excerpt: i have had my tv for about 2 years now and this tv is still amazing the picture that it gives you with or even without hd is wonderful you feel like you could just reach out and touch what is showing!!!
Excerpt: This TV is neither too small nor too large. It is great for games and now I have channels that I did not have before withour paying for anytjing. The only bad thing that I would sya is that sometimes when I change the input source from TV to PC saome of the images that I was watching remain but are barely noticeable.
