Beautiful image quality

  • Summary: Beautiful image quality, but stupid app store and mind boggling complex remote. I ended up abandoning Samsung's app platform after 24 frustrating hours and bought a refurb'd Google TV box instead. (Yea, it was that bad!

Power supply and panel failed after 2.5 years of regular use - too soon!

  • Summary: I have this TV for two and one-half years. Works well, great picture. menus can be confusing. I am writing this now because my TV went out last night and doesn't power on. No LED light. From some internet research it appears to be the power supply. Samsung has had some issues with power supplies in the past, but they say not with this model. My previous tube TV lasted 17 years without any problem!

No Amazon Streaming

  • Summary: I purchased Amazon Prime thinking I would stream movies from that source. There was no icon on the Samsung Smart Hub for this service. I called Amazon and they said Samsung hadn't released an update to allow this. Then I phoned Amazon and they said they did not have such an update and did not have plans to do so. They also indicated this was a 2011 model altho I purchased it in 2012. Otherwise the TV seems fine but this part has been disappointing.

Auto Dim problem out of the Box but still a good TV.

RadTech51, Amazon
24 February 2012
  • Summary: Ok first I want to make it clear this is a great looking TV but requires some adjustment out of the box. I seems to be an Auto Dim problem with several of the Samsung TV's including this new PN64D8000 Plasma TV. When I'm watching a movie or any other program for that matter I notice a very annoying Auto Diming of the picture as if someone had just taken my remote control and changed the display setting during a scene.
