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. This was my first and now last Samgsung TV.

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). CNET rated the D8000 as the second (close second to the Panasonic) best 2011 TV overall. With a little bit of research,I found that the D7000 is actually the same panel as D8000.
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 parts. And this from a world-wide company.
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. However, after reading all of the reviews, and going to the store to check out the picture quality, I was frankly very impressed.
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. I plugged up a PS3, XBOX360 and a PC to it to test Blue-Ray movies and video games, and they all look stunning! - THE ISSUE: There is an odd BUZZING sound coming from the center of the TV.
Buzzing is terrible. Do not buy if you don't want to mount it.

Summary: I bought this, and if sitting directly in front of the tv, you can hear a very loud buzzing. you can hear buzzing from all angles, but it's especially loud the more centered you are in front of the tv. I've seen many other people complain about this problem with the tv. They call it directional buzzing. It buzzes loud enough that you can hear it over volume 20, even though Samsung says that you shouldn't be able to hear it over that volume.
