Poor Quality with Samsung

Summary: I purchased this TV in November 2010. In October 2011 the TV was unable to read the signals from the HDMI ports. I have an Xbox360, Samsung Blue-Ray player, and Direct TV DVR attached via HDMI. If one stopped reading I think is it likely a cable, but all three must be a component on the TV which went bad. I contacted Samsung CS and it was recommended that I unplug the TV and plug it back in. No change, the problem didn't go away.
Summary: This TV is the very best that I have seen and reasonbly priced. Quick shipping and easy set up. The picture quality is outstanding. I have purchased my last four TV sets through ebay and I am happy with them all.
Summary: The built in speakers started to make a buzzing sound a few months after purchase. (since I am using an AV receiver this was not an issue for me) The screen randomly goes dark for no apparent reason. Lately the TV started shutting off randomly by itself. I am about to contact the Samsung tech support folks. I am however disappointed that after less than a year of ownership, I have to get this overpriced TV repaired!!
Summary: bought this last november, pretty good deal then with 2 3d glasses [ non rechargable] and 3d bluray player. tonight a band of green color covered half of the screen just appeared. i went to menu and did a self diagnostic test, in short it said call samsung service and say this model and firmware. the next minute the screen goes hazy, this not the first tv that died on me before its time. so i know that without the guarantee it just a piece of junk.
Summary: i purchased this tv because it really had some sex appeal; i mean, it stood out with its attractive brushed frame and chromed out quodpod support system. second to none i say! i was torn between rating it 5 stars or 4 simply because its feature list promised a number of bells and whistles which might have been a little quirky since they have not been tweaked to perfection eg. internet and apps. these quirks might fail to impress the tech savvy and the gadget gurus.
Excerpt: A Sumsung Smart TV is a great example of modern day technology. It includes 3D Vision, Internet Access and many more features. I regularly use it to have a Skype video conference with family and friends overseas. It makes this easy as the TV includes an camera.
Summary: WOW, our whole family is very impressed with this TV. The clarity & the colors are really fantasic. We are extremely happy with our purchase. The set up was easy. We were up and running within an hour. We also purchased a TV stand with mount, Samsung 3D Blue Ray, and Logitech Harmony One remote and hooked it all up to our previously purchased Onkyo 7.1 surround receiver. 1st movie we watched in HD was Avatar (on Charter cable)(have not watched anything yet in 3d).
Summary: I bought this tv as a replacement for my 42" Visio LCD. I wanted to try the 3D experience, and it is awesome! However, what I learned is that the HDMI has to go directly between the tv and the 3D bluray player (I purchased the panasonic) to get the best 3D possible. I tried connecting through my surround sound and found the 3D picture to be lacking, once I went directly through the bluray player the picture was excellent.
