Summary: 3 years and not a hiccup! Love the colors, contrast and BLACKS on this TV. It spent 2 years in our old house on its stand and now made its way to our condo wall mount. This TV is HEAVY, so don't even think of moving it around yourself. I don't really use the SmartTV function because the TV firmware processes quite slowly (we use phones, tablets, pc's to surf the net anyway).
Movers broke my first one and I replaced it with an exact same model

Summary: The image quality and features are great. I wanted plasma over LED because plasma renders motion so much more effectively. One thing to be aware of: this TV generates a lot of heat. I think it would be difficult to use this TV in a smaller, closed room as it would definitely raise the temperature of the room. After a few hours of operation it's almost like having a heater on.
Summary: Fan-freakin-tastic!!!! I love this TV. I have it in a room that doesn't get much natural light so a Plasma was the way to go for me. Also, it's main use is for gaming. Can't go wrong with this one.
Summary: I like my Samsung TV; the picture quality, the screen size and the swilve feature. But unfortunately, they shipped me a unit that was slightly damaged but the hassle to return the unit was not worth the effort.
Summary: It's not a fault of this particular TV but a fault with plasmas in general. I get eyestrain and headaches everytime I watch this thing. I am 14 feet away so I am not too close. It is not in "torch mode". It is the flickering that does it. From what I have read some people are more sensitive to this than others. I wish I had known this before buying. Look to the sides and use your peripheral vision to see the flicker. I have heard LED TVs do not have this.
Summary: I've been a long-time fan of Samsung products. I've owned LCD, LCD-LED and Plasma models, and I've enjoyed the picture best on their plasma displays. That said, I made the mistake of purchasing two Samsung D-Series plasma TVs.
Pros: Excellent black levels at first; rich, colorful picture. Easy to calibrate. Screen uniformity was near flawless. Great picture for daytime use.
Cons: Too expensive for even Samsung to justify the repairs. D-Series panels only manufactured for one year; burn-in easy. Anti-reflective material peels from corners. Buzzing is audible even from distances greater than ten feet. Inside panel may crack.
Summary: This TV is great! I already had a 58" plasma by Samsung and I knew I wanted another one just a little bigger and it had to be 3D. When I found this one I was thrilled. I did do my research on 3D and I wanted to try active 3D. Besides, LG's plasmas only went up to 60" and I wanted bigger. I got this and I am so happy with it. I have no complaints about it and there is none of that buzzing that everyone usually complains about.
Summary: I have had this TV for 2 months now and the main feature that is critical to me is the picture quality, which I think is tremendous. Not only is it clear and vibrant, but the viewing angles are excellent! The issues I have are not critical, but keep the TV from a 5 star rating IMO. 1. The remote is cumbersome. I still have not figured out how to use the QWERTY keyboard.
Pros: + Picture is rich, sharp and simply amazing, + 3D image is great!, + The off angle viewing is impressive, + Built in Sound is very good, + Samsung's smart hub is neat and supports wireless internet!
