Summary: We actually love the TV...we got this to replace out previous plasma that developed lines in the screen after four year. Definitely a learning curve with the remote and all of the features though! I gave this one only three stars because we discovered that the TV is totally useless without said remote ( our dog ate it ).
Low quality, avoid buying Samsung, cheap parts don't last.

Summary: Bought this two years ago, it has died already. Not what I would have expected from what I thought was a company that made quality products. Searched the internet, bad capacitors, bad transistors, there are forums full of issues with Samsung TVs. Low quality product, will not buy Samsung again.
Summary: I owned the TV since 2011. Within a few months a thin horizontal black line appeared close to the bottom of the screen. As I was getting ready to contact Samsung the line disappeared on its own. The same line appeared again a few months later and disappeared within a week. Since then it has appeared and disappeared a few times. In Sept 2013 smoke and sparks came from the back of the TV.
Summary: Have owned Plasmas and LCD tvs. People are always concerned about plasma and their burn in or image retention. I can say this TV not only offers an amazing value for 3d, smart tv, great picture but I have not experianced any burn in and no imiage retention. I am not too worried with the smart tv because I don't use it, but from what I have used it worked just fine. The 3d is great on this tv. For the price of this tv you can not go wrong with this set.
Summary: My samsung plasma tv was great for the first year until it completely lost its picture. It started as one corner being black then it spread across the entire screen. I purchased the best buy extended warranty and am still waiting for someone to actually come to my house and look at it. If you are spending money thinking this tv will last a long time then samsung is not the brand for you!
Summary: I have been very disappointed in my Samsung TV. I had owned a Panasonic plasma but, when it finally conked out after 6 years, I wanted to replace it with something I thought would be better. I went to the big Samsung store in Columbus Circle (NYC) and decided to order this one after talking with one of the workers there. The focus of our conversation was reliability.
Summary: I was going to order a 65" Panasonic Plasma, but at $2,000 more, I couldn't see why such a price difference. This TV looks great and at $1,600 you cant beat the price. Picture is good from all viewing angles. I hooked it up to a surround sound system, so I cannot comment on the humming problem that some reviewers have noted. I have LCDs and Plasmas.
Summary: had this tv now for 8 months and very happy with it. colors are sharp and bright. i dont know what others complaining about plasma not being bright enought. our room is not that well lit but brightness level is set at 70% and its enough for me. the only complaint i would have is the heat it generates. plasma tv really heats up the room. passing by the tv, you can feel the heat radiated. good if you live in a cold climate.
Summary: Awsome TV!! This is the best TV I have ever Owned hands down Period!!! The colors just blow you away compared to my LCD and LED TV's!! Best and Most TV for well under a Grand. Highly Recommended!! Apps Galore as well.
