Summary: WOW! This is one great looking television. I'm using this as a monitor on a system that has a few televisions and this simply displays video via an HDMI connection. It is installed on the wall and, with no accompanying cable box, has a very clean look. I am using an HDMI switch and it allows me to switch several inputs (Xbox 360, Blue Ray, Comcast, Roku) and I'll occasionally watch other sources on it through the switch.
Summary: Picture quality is excellent but the speaker system will make your ears bleed, it is truly horrific. At this price point you should be able to watch the local news without having to turn on your hoime theater system.
Beautiful picture, but there is definitely buzzing

Summary: Up until I purchased the PN63C7000 I was a die hard Panasonic guy. I didn't realize at the time that Amazon had a gift card promo going that they didn't carry the Panasonic 65" VT25, all I knew was that I wanted to get a new TV soon so I bought up a lot of gift credit. When the time came just before Christmas I found myself stuck having to choose among other brands, and Samsung was the only one I was willing to consider for a new PDP.
Summary: First and foremost, I am a techie. I'm very meticulous about what I buy and based on reviews, forum readings, open issues, etc. This TV is great and for it's price it is absolutely awesome. There are 2 things that I had trouble with. First issue is the soap opera effect. This is just a setting that can be turned off by going to Game Mode and toggling it ON then OFF. Simple. Samsung might have screwed up somewhere and left it ON all the time.
Summary: First tv arrived with a damaged screen, shipping company must have put the tv on it's side because the box had no physical damage. Second tv arrived with no problems but they didn't have the rma for the original. Had to make a few calls to amazon to resolve that but they got it straight. Whole process took about three weeks to get straight but I'm now a happy owner of this huge tv.
Pros: Picture is great!! Unboxed it and had it hung in about 30 minutes. Loaded with features
Cons: Lots of settings. The correct setting is imperative to a great picture. Took me a couple of days to get it the way I like it but worth it. For me part of the fun is figuring it out and I'm no expert.
Summary: The GOOD: * TV picture quality is beautiful, there are some tweaks you need to do, but about as good a 2D picture as you can get and with a screen this size sitting about 9 feet away watching a HD image, you really get a great movie theater effect. * TV for the money, you wont find a new model 63" plasma TV for this price any other place, amazon is always best with price. * 2d -> 3D up-convert. I expected this feature to suck, but I was wrong.
Summary: This is a great set for the money. It can easily be turned into the 8000 series with a simple service menu hack. All you need to do is enter a few buttons in your remote to achieve this. The 3D is great, and I don't imagine how it could be any better on the Sony or Panasonic. 2D->3D conversion is excellent both with gaming and movies. Do some research and get the proper settings to get the most out of this set. Speakers are fair, but what do you expect from a thin TV?
Summary: This tv is by far an awesome tv. i have had it for 3 weeks and am blown away by the video quality. all the apps and everything are awesome. the quality is almost too real for anyone to get used to but no complains there. One thing you definitely do notice the first time you watch any hd content is some kinda juddering in the images. it is distracting.
Summary: I've had this TV for a little over 2 weeks now. I really like it. Picture quality is amazing, Plasma just looks way better than LCD/LED. I replaced an LCD and I couldn't be happier. 3D was not the reason why I bought it, for now I just think 3D is OK and not worth the extra money. I only got it because of a great deal on the set so I took it. The internal speakers are horrible, don't count on that as your main speakers if you like audio at all.
