DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT
30 November 2012
Summary: If you are thinking of getting a samsung plasma, DON'T!!!!!!!!!!!!. I bought a C7000 from bestbuy and guess what. BUZZING!!!!!! No problem, I returned it and got a new one. Guess what, BUZZING!!!!!!!!!! Enough with this B.S. I got a panny vt series and these tv's kick some serious a$$. Do yourself a favor and stay away from the samsung plasma tv's and get yourself a panny, vt series if possible.
Summary: No where on the packaging of this TV was I told that it would buzz. It buzzes loudly. I live in a low altitude. Samsung says: PN64E8000GF Your Plasma TV Is Buzzing Loudly Plasma TVs typically make a soft buzzing sound. This is normal. It's caused by the electrical charges that are used to create the images on the screen. The buzzing, however, should not be so loud that you can hear it when the volume on the TV is set at normal levels.
Corner Cutting, Not Cutting Edge, Poor Workmanship

Summary: Updated 1/15/2013: I wish I could lower my review. Set still not fixed. I am on my third main board, samsung refuses to replace set, and gives me the run around. I have lost time out of work, samsung puts you on hold and acts like they have no idea there is even a problem. Last tech wrote up the set was still not fixed, and samsung refuses to replace set. Some one did call back once, left a number, refuses to return any of my numerous calls.
AVOID SAMSUNG PLASMA - BURN-IN AFTER A FEW MONTHS OF USE
8 November 2012
Summary: The good: very good image quality, better than their LED TVs. The bad: After using it for 4 months the screen is already burned, in the areas where the TV displays subtitles. While I understand burn-in or retention from watching CNN tickers, games, fixed logos, etc., this was caused by the TV's own firmware flaw.
Summary: The good: excellent image quality, better than their LED TVs. The bad: After using it for 4 months the screen is already burned, in the areas where the TV displays the subtitles for All Share (DLNA, network, USB) content.

Loud Hum and poor Support - I would not recommend.
9 May 2012
Summary: The picture is great - I will give Samsung that. The black is really black. The internet browser / wifi and many other features work well and are easy to setup. The problem with my unit is that it hums.... so loud you can hear it from 35 feet away. Every time I change channels, switch inputs, the audible hum is a huge distraction. Then I tried to get it repaired.... and got the run around. After the repair guy got there and said - "yes it hums" I tried to get parts.
