Love this TV but.........
2 June 2013
Summary: Purchased this on March 11, 2011 and was extremely satisfied. Best picture ever. Then on June 2, 2013, the screen went black. Cable box, DVD, it did not matter.....no signal. The cable box was sending a signal to the cable company. The DVD player has sound coming out of the speakers. Still "Check Signal" message came up. Self diagnosis showed sound and a picture but it appears as if I am off to get hosed by the repair folks.
Summary: I bought this tv from Nebraska Furniture Mart back in 2010. It was a super sharp tv. One of their first 3d tvs and it did great. Picture quality was amazing. It was 240hz which helped with motion blur. For years it was great. Very sharp picture and all was grand for a while. At the time when I bought it they had a promo where you got the 3d starter kit ( 2 glasses and monsters vs aliens 3d) as well as a free 6900 3d bluray player.
Summary: I had a Samsung 50 inch plasma nice picture until this TV failed it looked like the common problem with the cheap capacitors installed on their TV's. Google Samsung TV repairs, they even have a class action lawsuit with this problem of this TV failing prematurely. They would not honor my warranty because I was out of warranty by two months. I had this TV repaired once on my dime now it has failed again.
Excerpt: My boyfriend begged me to get this television and after much thought, we decided it would be a good investment since we were relocating to the middle of nowhere for three years and would need some form of entertainment. This was a great choice! We use this television all day and night! It is amazing! Everyone who has come over ends up wanting the exact television and ends up calling and asking us about it! It is a dream!
Excerpt: I orginally bought a 55" sony LED LCD HDTV. I chose that size according to the recommendations all over the internet. However it gavae me a headache and I was not totally satisfied with the picture quality. I returned it for the Samsung 46" 8000 and it was the best decision I could have made. At a distance of 9', a perfect picture on a 46" screen is dynamite! The picture quality is superb. I also had to call samsung customer support and they were very helpful.
Excerpt: I got this TV about 3 months ago, and since then i have enjoyed its beautiful design, and great picture. Straight out of the box i liked it because it is light and easy and intuitive to use and to set up. Plus the larger screen sizes allows everyone to clearly seen it. One thing that really stands out ot me is the picture quality. I feel like i am wcthing the show or movie in person, due to the refresh rate of this TV.

Excerpt: This makes the 3rd Samsung TV I have purchased in last 5 years.One for my Dad and 2 for me. Still have my 42 inch DLP and the new * Samsung UN46C8000 3D HDTV * knocks it out of the park just like all Samsung products seem to be doing lately... Thansk to the clear and vivid picture quality I received on my firts Samsung TV, making a decision to go with Samsung was a no-brainer...
Excerpt: When it came to purchasing a new television, I really was not that impressed by what I saw. Many of the tvs did not look much better than the old tube versions but had huge price tags. That was until I discovered this Samsung. This set blows my mind every time I turn it on. The picture is unmatched by any other tv I have seen... ever. When friends and family come over they take one look at the super thin screen and snicker.
Summary: Since I bought this TV in late 2010, I had to bring a technician home to fix the wireless connection after been by myself reading all information available with no to avail. in 2 and half years, maybe only 60% of the time I was able to enjoy internet connections with this TV. Even upgraded the firmware.
