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 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.
Summary: This Tv has one of the best pictures i have ever seen. Just amazing. The remote however is another matter. IT is not a learning remote so unless you buy an learning remote your stuck with using 1 remote to run the tv and one for the cable box. For this money the remote should be top notch. Samsung dropped the ball on that. I downloaded the samsung app and fios app to my IPAD so use that instead of both remotes.
Summary: This TV is great, the colors, picture and price, but I have notice some fluctuating screen when watching movies on netflix. The 3D is good, but not eye popping. 2D picture in Blue Ray is the best TV. There are not that many 3d selections on netflix or blockbuster, so 3D is good enough. 2D viewing on Blue-ray makes this tv a must have.
Summary: I really like this TV... haven't had a chance to calibrate or test all the features yet, but I am really happy with the overall image and sound quality. After reading so many reviews, I was worried about the peeling and the buzzing issues. I haven't seen any signs of peeling yet, but the buzzing is always there. This is my first plasma set, so I was not aware of the "common" buzzing issue with the technology.
Summary: Pros- Best Picture Quality out of any TV on the Market, Color Uniformity and Ghosting are not an issue with this TV the Picture Quality is Unmatched Cons- Stand is flimsy, Auto Dim problem, the picture brightness will fluctuate on its on with any changes by the User or the lighting in the Room, Very Noticealble while watching Football Games, have not noticed this problem at any other time. I Turned off the Eco Sensor, and this seemed to help a good bit.
Summary: Have now had this TV for 2 weeks and have really enjoyed setting it up and testing it on various media sources. I can say that the picture is the best I have seen on HD content but SD channels look much worse than my previous SXRD LCD. Also, the SD settings available to stretch the image are poor since they don't allow me to stretch the image and fill the screen fully with no bars.
Summary: I like the wifi features of this tv and the qwerty remote. Sometimes the keyboard doesn't work when flipped over. Not as bright as a lcd tv but much better viewing angles and it doesn't make movies look like they were shot with a home video camera which lcd tv's tend to do. The room I have it in isn't too bright so it's perfect. I'm glad I waited to get this one as opposed to last years model. Price and features were well worth it.
Summary: This is a wonderful television! I suggest that you go to a forum and get proper setup information if you want the very best picture, but even out of the box (where the settings are way too hot), I thought it looked good. The remote works well, connectivity is simple, the menus are easy to work with...all good. The stand was difficult to attach to the tv - it took 3 people and some sweat to get the stand on (don't want to drop this baby...).
