Summary: Purchased this Samsung model back in 2011 and regret it. After owning it for only 2 years, the screen has developed a "purple haze" that shows up on bright colored/white screens. Doesn't matter what input you use; video games, Blu-ray, cable, etc. Samsung refuses to fix the issue without charging over $1000 to replace the entire screen. They say that it is not a widespread issue and the TV is out of warranty, so it falls onto the customer to pay for the repair.
Summary: Great TV. Great 3D (make sure you get a good pair of glasses), however, if glasses aren't for you, think about investing into a different technology. Lots of inputs on the back. I use this primarily for my PC, which I found out after the fact that Plasma TVs ghost like the old CRTs, so you will want to use the cleaning functionality every once in a while. However, it recovers fairly quickly, so just running a video full screen will fix it too.
Samsung needs better quality control, or just better quality parts

Summary: We bought this TV in February 2011. I spent about a month going to local stores asking about different TVs and what they offered and reviewing different TVs online. I spent a week or so looking at every review I could find about these Samsung plasmas. I saw a couple people had issues, but usually it was with a different size. We decided to jump and not look back..... Now we're looking back..... We got it mounted and wired up after a few days.
Summary: It is hard to believe that no one else leaving a review has mentioned this: I have had this TV for one year and the only 3D movie I have seen is the kiddie movie 'Monsters and Aliens' about cartoon monsters. None of the movies from Netflix like Hubble 3D or Piranha 3D or Step Up 3D have the actual 3D feature on them. They have a 3D like depth and quality but there won't be anything leaping off the screen like it does in the theaters.
Really 4 1/2 stars out of 5. Amazing Tv one of the best. 5/5 if the MJC would be turned on

Summary: I wrote a glowing review on my Panasonic 65 INCH Plasma S2 TV. 5 months later, it blew out big time, and Panasonic was unable to get parts to fix it in a reasonable time. I replaced it with this 3d Plasma from Samsung. First, the picture on 2d is clearer, sharper, and richer in color and blacks than the S2 which makes me happy. The 3d is spectacular. I tried the 2d to 3d conversion found in the menu. It actually did convert regular HD TV programs to 3d.
Summary: I bought the C7000 series over the C8000 because it saved me hundreds of dollars, but also the only thing the C8000 had over the C7000 was it's black filter feature, which was suppose to make the blacks in a picture appear darker. But i thought since it was a plasma anyways, it should already have pretty deep blacks. Or at least deep enough. But boy was i wrong. The black levels are terrible, more like a very dark grey. Or a light black.
Summary: This is one beautiful TV. The picture quality is spectacular. The TV is beautiful even when it's off. Even the speakers are pretty good (although the external sound surround system is better, of course). The integrated Internet is meh. Samsung, like others, only lets you view the services that it wants to let you view. Some of those services are worthwhile. Most are trying to sell you content. How about giving us a browser? How about some Net neutrality, eh?
Summary: It only took amazon three tries to get this tv too me. The first two arrived broken. It was upsetting but amazon compensated me nicely each time. The third time I recieved an intact tv. Got it home, hung it up, turned it on, and oh my... Just beautiful. One of if not the best pictures I have ever seen, and I shop tv's. I went with plasma because I feel that the plasma has a better picture, and a better price.
Summary: The first panel arrived cracked -- this was a shipping problem. The second worked long enough for the kids to watch the included 3D movie. The second day the set wouldn't recognize any of the inputs -- it was 1 day old so it was sent back to the distributor. The third worked for 31 days -- then went black. The repair folks from Samsung have just left the house and the TV doesn't work. They replaced every board -- it will now produce a picture but the picture is green.
