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: So I've had this TV for 1.5 years now, and it has worked WONDERFULLY until last week. I noticed the right half of the bottom edge's backlight began to flicker on and off every 15 seconds or so. At this point, it's now almost always off, and I can't get it to come back on. This causes the picture to be noticeably darker on the bottom right half quarter of the screen.
Summary: I purchased this TV in December 2010 after doing quite a bit of research on the 46" TV offerings at that time. The form factor of the TV itself is very nice, it is a good looking set and mounts easily to a wall or on top of an entertainment cabinet. The potential to be a great TV exists, however Samsung dropped the ball on their hardware. I've had to completely reset all settings on the TV twice now due to HDMI problems with the main board.
This is a good TV, it is not a good Internet HD Streamer TV

Summary: I have this TV since January and it is good for SD video channels and superb for HD video channels, but if you think to use the embedded Internet app, probably you'd prefer WD Live TV or any external Internet device. I use Vimeo HD service and the UN46C8000XFXZA TV freezes the video each 1.30 minutes, it is because the video buffer for HD streaming video is not the enough to keep whole streaming to play. It is simple, this TV is good as TV no more.
Summary: Ok, so I did a lot of research before buying this. Read a lot of reviews but sadly ignored minor things I saw here and there that should have raised a red flag. First, CNET has really good critical reviews on TV's, check that out before your read anymore user reviews. I'll make this brief. The TV is attractive, very sleek. The picture is great, very bright, great contrast, deep blacks. The internet connectivity is good for what it is. Settings are plentiful.
Summary: Got this TV and returned it to HHGregg after 2 days. Picture was mediocre, colors were very washed out, blacks were grey, whites were bland, sound was absolutely terrible (although for this kind of TV you should invest in surround sound). Really wanted to like this TV, but was just so unimpressed. Spent many hours working on calibration, trying to convince myself the picture was good, trying different mediums.

Summary: I purchased this TV for an excellent price from Amazon around the end of Dec. 2010. From the start, the sound was terible. It had a vibrating sound even on low. None of the sound adjustments on the TV solved the problem. I purchased a Home Theater Sound System for 2 reasons. The first was to eliminate the vibrating sound from the TV. The second was because the speakers on the TV are on the back and makes the sound muffled when you mount the TV on a wall.
