Great TV at first, but then a vertical line showed up after 3 years
25 April 2014
Summary: Great TV when I first bought it, then a vertical line showed up in the middle of the screen. Anyone know how to fix it? Guess I can't complain too much, since it's 3.5 years old, but I'm used to getting 10+ years from a TV.
Great TV for the price. Until it a bunch of lines showed up after 30 months.

Summary: About 10 lines of various colors down the center and left side of the screen. Very upset. Expect at least 5 years out of a TV! Am going to try and replace the Y-main board and see if it fixes the problem.
Disappointed - Permanent Green Vertical Stripe Down Middle Of Screen After Only 2 Years

Summary: Disappointed! TV worked great for 2 years, then suddenly a a green vertical stripe appeared down the middle of the screen. Stripe is evident when using different inputs, so is definitely a dead pixel issue.
Summary: I bought a Samsung PN50C6500 50-Inch 1080p Plasma HDTV (Black) in July 2010. We don't watch TV much with this TV normally. But there is a solid line on the screen since last week. I called the Samsung support desk, and run a test, but the line still there.
Summary: Great plasma picture. For my money it is better than the LCDs. Mine is connected to a Samsung blue ray home theater. Both are "smart" which I now realize was unnecessary. Only needed one smart device.
Summary: This TV arrived from Amazon via truck with two delivery men who unboxed and essentially set it up. They also moved my large older heavy TV. It works virtually as stated although I have not taken the time to import Netflix etc. It is user friendly however so I don't expect a problem.
Summary: I have to say, I never thought I would buy a plasma set over an LCD - this set changed my mind about that! The picture quality is far above most in this price range. The blacks look great, the color is solid, and images are razor sharp!
Summary: We've had the PN50C6500 for a month now and couldn't be happier. Easy set up and great picture. The Internet link works very well and adds a wealth of PPV options. We've also used it to display iPhoto slide shows, Facebook picture collections and streaming continuing education seminars.
Summary: I ordered this TV December 4th to get it for Christmas. The 1st delivery was late and it was the wrong TV. A Panasonic TV instead of a Samsung. I have to call twice customers service to acknowledge their mistake.
