Problems shortly after warranty expired, Samsung won't do anything. Avoid it.

Summary: I bought this product back in 2010 as a Christmas gift for the entire family. I explicitly picked Samsung over other brands for its reputation of being a quality brand. For the first year or so the TV was OK - I mean, it's just a TV, right? You expect to turn it on, watch whatever it is you want to watch, turn it off, repeat for several years. Correct? Well, not so fast.
Summary: I loved this TV for the first seven months that I've owned it. Unfortunately, while watching a movie one afternoon, the screen suddenly went black. The sound, however, continued to stream. I thought it may be my cable box, or a connection that was unplugged. After unplugging and plugging everything back in, I noticed a small, 3 inch, spider crack just under the front screen. I touched over it, and you can't feel anything...but you can definitely see the crack.
Summary: I purchased the Samsung PN-50C7000 in July of 2010 and was really excited about getting a new TV with 3D. I was very disappointed with it and recently sold it. The quality was terrible when playing SD video and in HD, the picture was ok, but sufferred from really annoying dot crawl and motion blur. There was this blur around any moving object on the screen that bled into the background. This was very distracting.
Summary: This TV promised the earth and delivered very little. The spec as described in the advert did not match the tv and it has now broken down within 2 years of purchase. I believe that the faults with Samsung capacitors was well known by Amazon before they flogged this to me in fact they had a class action over it in the states but obviously dont care enough about their UK customers to withdraw it from sale.

Summary: I am hoping that this fault is unique to just my TV but if you are thinking of buying one of these recommend you hold until the replacement set arrives next week. This may result in a very different review and thank you Amazon for reacting so quickly to offer a replacement. First impressions of this TV are excellent. I already have a 46 inch Samsung LCD which I am so impressed with which in part influenced my decision to buy another Samsung.
Well its good but bad experience with one bought through Amazon...

Summary: Now I was very keen on this TV, ordered Sunday and received Tuesday...that was the easy bit, Set up the TV and turned it on, there was a 1" green line on the picture which was about 10" in from the left hand side, tried all options to clear it. Rang Samsung for advice and held on a premium rate line for 4o minutes to be told "Return to Amazon" and nothing else, by which time the picture had gone completely black.
