  • Pros: Good Look, Good picture to start with. Quite a good marketing.
  • Cons: This TV does not last. Two years of service for $3000 is bad.

Poor Quality with Samsung

W. D. Downing, Amazon
17 March 2012
  • 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.

Nice looking TV when It's off!

  • 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.

After 4 Hours Failed

Jerry L. Nichols "History and Mystery", Amazon
24 December 2010
  • 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.

20 December 2010
  • Pros: BRIGHT? AND THIN? I GUESS
  • Cons: I dont have enough room to properly bash this tv, but i'll try... gray blacks, motion blur, no viewing angles, washed out, looks like a kitchen appliance, If you told a movie director that he movie would look this bad on a tv, he prob wouldn't makeit

  • Pros: Amazing Picture. 3D is a big plus. Hangs on wall via mount that looks like picture wire.
  • Cons: 3 weeks after bringing it home, it WOULD'NT TURN ON!!! Samsung sent local electronics contractor to replace motherboard. 3 weeks later, AGAIN IT WON'T TURN ON!!! 5 hours on the phone with Samsung Executive Services and they are replacing it.

"BEWARE Samsung Big Screen Paperweight Die after a year"

jLNCarter, CNET
11 August 2010
  • Pros: Fantastic picture
  • Cons: Capacitors are too weak. Go out within two years - usually less. TV turns on and off over and over and will not stay on. Many techs do not know how to repair properly. DREAM to NIGHTMARE just after warranty expires.
