THIS IS AN EXCELLENT TV. I HAVE THE 51 INCH AND GOT IT FOR $1798.00 THAT IS THE BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK THERE IS !!! THE SAMSUNG TV'S HAVE THE BEST 3D , BAR NONE.
Pros nice color
Cons poor speakers
that flickering when going to a black screen
poor stand the old pn58c8000 had a better stand
Summary I have bought 3 different Samsung Plasma's in a 3 year period and I like the first two all 8000 series. This new one does something I do not like it acts like an LED when the screen goes black it turns itself off which causes flickering of the screen. A plasma does not need to do this it already has a deep enough black screen. Its very upsetting when the rest of the picture quality is fine. Acting like an LED when its a plasma TV is just poor engineering it removes the plus of having a plasma
Pros When the tv works the picture is excellent.
Cons Two brand new tv's broken down in a matter of 10 days. At no stage have Samsung apologised for this and they have been very frustrating to deal with. Still waiting to hear when we can receive a replacement...
Summary It's our 2nd Samsung tv the first was an LCD which lasted 4 years & broke down. Seriously thought they would have improved but clearly they got worse. Never again. What a waste of $2500.....
Pros Outstanding overall picture. The black levels are crazy deep, deeper than the D8000. The whites are 30% brighter than last years model, and the 3D is amazing!!! Try watching Avatar 3D or Tron Legacy 3D on this thing, you'll be blown away.
Cons Unnecessary gimmicky options like voice and gesture control. The 3D glasses that come with the TV sucks(they flicker too much)so buy the Samsung SSG-3100GB 3D glasses instead. The touch remote sucks so use the standard remote that also comes with it
Summary Samsung fixed the two major issues that plagued the D8000 series which were the screen peeling of the thin anti-reflective film, and the most annoying, the "brightness pop" issue which was really bad. I honestly think that Samsung used the D8000 series as a Beta TV. There venturing into new ground with these new series of plasmas and as each year goes by, each new model will eliminate the previous models problems. As far as buzzing is concerned I do hear it a bit but if you have a surround sound system like I do, it will drown it out and you won't notice it. The screen burn in issue that I read from vizfx_guy is pretty strange and has to be a manufacture defect considering this plasma is equipped with "Pixel Shift" which does exactly that to prevent burn in. This option was clearly not working on vizfx_guy TV and it's a shame that Samsung wouldn't just swap it for a replacement. That's what they did with me when the brightness pop issue wasn't resolved when they replaced the screen on my 64" D8000. They gave me the 64" E8000. The only real issue with this particular model is the buzzing noise but not all of them suffers from that. You just have to hope that if you buy this TV you get the one that doesn't buzz, and buy an extended warranty! That way they can replace it with the newest model if need be.
Pros Black levels
Built in camera
Cons Remote controls suck, both of them. The touch pad remote is awful to use and the regular remote has no qwerty keyboard on the back. They should have stuck with last years model...
Summary This Tv is truly amazing. It produces a beautiful picture and is a big step up from last year PN59D8000. this Tv has very deep blacks, awesome features, vivid bright picture, and the best 3D i've seen. In my opinion it is the best TV out for it's price and features.
