DIED JUST AFTER WARRANTY EXPIRED

Summary: Started off a great Plasma TV. Just after the warranty ended, the TV shut off without warning. Samsung refused to help in any capacity because the warranty was expired, and our family is now stuck with a 51" piece of plastic we paid almost $1300 for. What a waste.

Summary: I have had this TV for about a week now. I am a techie (computer engineer/analyst/programmer...geek) so I thoroughly researched this TV and reviews like this before making this purchase (my first plasma, and step into HD and step into 3D, lol).
Summary: The first time I turned on this television it worked for an hour, and then a bright white horizontal line appeared across the screen. Not a little one, either, but 9 inches high! Samsung explained that because I had the TV shipped out of the country, there is no warranty, not even for the cost of...
Summary: The chronic brightness popping, a well documented issue with this set on CNET and in various forums, makes the TV upsetting to watch. Upsetting because you know what you paid and you also know that you have a low quality TV that Samsung does not stand behind.
Summary: I bought the Samsung PN59D7000 59" Plasma 3D HDTV after exhaustive research. The TV was actually hailed as the TV of the year in some circles. I've been in the TV/Film industry for 20 years and knew enough to avoid plasma TV's due to a myriad of issues.
Summary: Just to give an idea for those ordering now that the 2011 TV's are a deal with 2012's on the horizon. I was torn between this and a similar Panasonic model. With word of Samsung also fixing their Fluctuating Brightness, I thought I've give them a try.
Summary: I'm not a particularly picky person and I can live with a low faint hum but every replacement that I've received for this TV has had an excessively loud buzzing noise that emanates from the center of the TV. I originally purchased the 51" version, which did not hum but had screen peeling.
Summary: Hello everyone, I just received my Samsung PN597000 TV from Amazon last night and was greatly disappointed. :( The TV is beautiful; I can't say that I have ever seen a more beautiful piece of hardware. The picture displayed by this TV is superb.
Summary: Brightness fluctuations/"brightness pops" ruin an otherwise great looking TV. Problem has gotten worse over time and no matter what settings I adjust or what type of content I watch (Blu ray, DIRECTV, play video games) dark scenes will sometimes brighten up and then return to normal.
