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: 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: Samsung UN55C8000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz 3D LED HDTV 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.
Summary: This is my second Samsung purchased from Amazon! The first broke down after six months use and it took the Samsung repairman six weeks to show up to replace one board (less than 15 minutes) and it now works fine. This time I set the new 3D set up on December 19th and it had a black screen on December 20th. The repairman showed up on December 22. He replaced two boards to no avail.
Summary: This television probably rocks, during the short 5 hours it worked it was superb. And then it just quit. So I contacted Samsung 'customer service', and the games began. Caveat Emptor, Samsung CS is not your friend. The set was installed on 6/28, and died on the morning of 6/29. Notified Samsung the same day, they called a week later (7/6/2010) to graciously inform me that they had accepted my referral and would replace the set in 7-10 days.
Summary: Design Perfetc, TV Good, 3D with movies in 3D very good, the rest terrible, internet very hard to navigate, great advertisiment from skype and it dont have a simple microfone, you must have to buy the expensive camera. The all share don't work with mac, that is terrible, I tryed some software but they are slow and navigation is unfriendly, you must have an HDD for timeshift, it dosen't work with normal HD, and the timeshift sould be called timedelay, because you can't...
