Summary: Bought the item and after 2 weeks returned it. * Annoying buzz sound can be heard from the TV * Same old Plasma TVs Ghost picture problem * Because of the slim design it's very hard to connect the cables on the back specially if you're using coax cables. * 3D is really cool, but it's nothing like you see in a 3D,4D Theme parks where stuff really look they're floating in front of your eyes. It has 3D depth mostly.
Summary: I had two of these TV's from Amazon - on the first one the picture went after two months and on the second replacement one the sound was awful, very distorted and crackly. I sent them both back for refunds and bought a Panasonic TX-P50VT30B 3D Plasma TV from the local Lakes shop in Bracknell which is by far superior in picture and sound.
Summary: i agreed to let my other half buy this with the notion that if he could afford a new tv he could afford to marry me (so we're getting wed next year!). his thoughts are that as a tv it's fab, the picture quality excellent (after the usual 100-200 hours burn in time) but as a 'monitor' it isn't up to much as it 'blinks' (although Samsung admit there being problems with this but don't yet know how to solve it).
Summary: Like everyone else on here, I did my homework when purchasing my new tv. Initially I thought this tv was fantastic...until the problems arose. 1. Loud buzzing sound from rear of tv after about 2 days. 2. Terrible 'line bleed' when on xbox dashboard screen. This was also noticable on certain sky channels when the tv channel bar was displayed. 3. 2 DEAD pixels appeared right in the centre of the screen after about 5 days.
Contrary to 1st opinion - it's really best avoided.

Summary: I mainly bought this set on the strength of the reviews written here and indeed there is a certain "Wow!" factor when you 1st get to view the set. The problem is this starts to wear off quickly once you become aware of the sets weaknesses. The principal one of which is diabolical black levels which are actually so bad that 'dark' films become effectively unwatchable (assuming you view in a dark environment).
