Summary: I highly recommend this Plasma 3D TV. Great picture, true black colors. I will say there is a little noise from the plasma gas that you can here at first. You do not have to turn up the volume super high to drown out the noise.
You cannot find a better HD or 3D picture anywhere

Summary: The picture on this tv might be the best I've ever seen. I've been shopping for about 6 months now, and I found the winner. Great features. Has the WIFI built in. 3D glasses are reasonably priced.
Summary: Did a lot of research on buying a new plasma. HD picture quality was most important factor. CNET wasn't.wrong when they named this best HDTV of 2011. Picture quality is spectacular using CNETS calibration settings. I have zero regrets. Also delivery was three days earlier than projected. I also have a DLP, LCD, and another plasma and none of them can touch this Samsung 59" 7000. January 2012 build date.
Summary: This TV is replacing an older unit. It's amazingly nice, really. The depths of the blacks is astoundingly nice, the colors are vibrant, and there are enough knobs to tune the picture to suit even the pickiest TV watcher.
Pros: Easy setup, dark as night blacks, excellent picture quality, good input selection, quite passable audio.
Cons: Text entry methods change. Sometimes it's an on-screen keyboard, other times it's very frustrating telephone-style entry.
CNET TV of the Year and Mine Too. Amazon delivers again.

Summary: Amazon stood behind me when the first PN59D7000 was damaged in shipping; sent out immediate replacement (at new, lowered price!) without hesitation. Such a great company. This TV's picture is so clear, vivid and deep it's incredible. I attend pro football, hockey, and baseball games and I have to say this television puts me right there in the crowd. It is so real! I'm sure FiOS gets some credit, too, but my old 57" didn't do this.
Summary: This TV is replacing an older unit. It's amazingly nice, really. The depths of the blacks is astoundingly nice, the colors are vibrant, and there are enough knobs to tune the picture to suit even the pickiest TV watcher. Initial installation took about 15 minutes. Unbox, put on stand, plug in HDMI components and power, turn on.
Summary: The men that delivered the tv were very professional and helpful. Once we got the tv set up and got all of our crazy connections from the old tv straightened out how easy it was to connect to the new one. I did buy a bunch of HDMI cords that I wish that I had on hand the day I got the tv. All of the ports make it easy to have more than one type of game console so now i don't have to rewire every time we change machines.
Summary: Earlier in 2011, I purchased the LG 60PZ550 to replace my Samsung PN50B550. At that point, I was satisfied with the LG. The picture was ok and it's packed with features for a very low price (similarly priced to PN59D550) so it represented an excellent value. Still, I was left feeling somewhat lacking and deliberated on returning it but decided to keep it... until when the PN59D7000 was released.
Summary: How I bought my Samsung TV this winter: Read reviews and re-read reviews. Plasma vs LCD vs Plasma vs LCD. Brand vs Brand vs Brand vs Brand. Watch the prices. Watch the prices. Watch the prices. Read seller reviews and then read some more. Read until your confusion level or angst has peaked... and then hit "send" on your order - from Amazon. My Samsung 7000 was sold by World Wide Audio through Amazon, delivered by Apollo via Home Direct USA. No tax, no shipping.
