Well worth the upgrade!!

This tv was purchased to replace the 51" 3d plasma D-series that we have and it is well worth the purchase. The new Smart hub interface is "AWESOME", very easy to navigate. The voice activated/swipe style remote is really great to use and has replaced a so-called smart remote we were using! The 3d imaging is up to par as well as regular 2d content.

Great Plasma 3D TV, plays perfect 3D!

After delivery of the Samsung TV from Walmart, I set up a few things while waiting for the "Geek Squad" to come and do a total setup. With all the things this great TV can do, I sure needed the help setting it up. And I was glad for the help, because they simplified everything and showed my wife and I how to get the TV to do everything we wanted it to do without learning and using everything suggested, thank God! So we now have wireless connection between the TV, internet and Amazon and Kindle Fire. We also had them add a Sony Blu ray 3D DVD player that also plays reg. DVD's & Blu ray DVD's. We had a regular DVD copy of the movie "Avitar", but I bought a new 3D copy. The 3D version played on this 3D Samsung is fantastic! Dim the lights, cause the picture window on this TV does reflect lights, but we can live with that. We love It. If you use wireless headphones and find that you cannot hook them up to the TV, hook them up to your (Comcast?) Cable Box. Enjoy!

Sammy Plasma

This plasma is the BOMB ! The picture beats ANY LCD/LED HDTV on the market today, even Samsung's own UHD TVs. I've had mine for a little over a month now and have broken it in. I have it wall mounted and hooked in with my Onkyo/BIC America A/V system. Everyone who sees it raves about how natural and vibrant the picture is. Right out of the box it was easy to set up ( plug accessories in and turn it on ). I turned off all picture management controls and adjusted it for my tastes and preferences. There is no motion blur, no lag times, no limited viewing angles and the blacks are very deep and dark. What more could you ask for ? I have viewed several 3D Blu-rays as well as 3D programing from my Direct system. Awesome. For the price, nothing else even comes close to this plasma. Nothing ! If you have a brain in your head, BUY THIS PLASMA. You won't find anything any better at 3x the price of this jewel !

Great tv but has some flaws....

My husband and I bought one of these tvs a few months ago. We loved it from the beginning. The day after we bought it we were watching a show on Netflix, then we decided to go to a different app. When we exited the show the screen showed everything in huge pictures, words, everything was very large. We couldn't see some of the apps or shows. We called the store we purchased it from and they said it was a defective tv. So we returned that one and exchanged it for the same model. We brought it home, hooked it up and a day later the same thing was happening. We still cannot figure out why it's doing this or how to fix it. If we turn the tv off then back on it goes back to normal. We aren't getting rid of it because of the beautiful picture or the easy access to apps. Another flaw is the low quality sound.

A great entertainment experience

This 60 inch 3D TV was easy to set up and begin using. The picture quality is excellent. It is a recommended buy in Consumer Reports. I have not yet tried the 3D, but expect it will be high quality also. My only beef is with the YouTube app: it is not easy to use, although it can be easily integrated with a PC or tablet. A very good buy.

60 Inch Samsung Plasma Smart TV

We got this a few weeks ago and love the image quality. Some minor shortcomings: The remote is a very poor substitute for a mouse and keyboard. When searching for "content" or trying to use the TV as a web browser it takes FOREVER to add text. Smart guy like me says to myself: How about a wireless keyboard and mouse? Got a nice new one. Plugged the USB dongle into the USB port....the keyboard won't work with this TV....but the mouse does... While watching programs from HULU or NetFlix they frequently drop out and you are obliged to retry to connect to your wireless router. This rarely works. You then have to exit and scroll back to the main menu to re-establish connectivity with the router in a settings menu. Then.. gnaw your way back to the icon laden display, find the one you want and mess with it until the program restarts. I specifically popped for a wireless router that was purported to "enhance the media experience". and have the ability to stream "content" seamlessly... right... Beyond that, the sound is pretty weak..,,,, I had hoped to use a really nice sub-woofer and satellite speaker set I had. It has a 3.5mm plug to connect to a computer etc... there is no 3.5 mm jack on this TV... grrrrr.....

Picture Went White Within 2 Hours!!!

I have another Samsung 50" TV, so when I wanted to upgrade to a larger screen I purchased this 60" inch plasma. At first the "deal" of TV, 3D disc player and 3D glasses seemed like an excellent buy. After setting up and learning the new features including the small swipe-remote I was pleased, then after several hours of playing the picture turned first pink stripes then blank white. The sound still was heard, but that familiar electronic burning smell filled the air! The picture never returned. I had to repack everything to return to store. Also, minimal amount of input doesn't allow for simple RCA plugs input for my wireless headphones that I find convenient for late night viewing/listening. Overall, a real disappointment with this product. Avoid at all costs!

Almost a ten out of ten

This thing is great but the menus for picture and sound settings feel lacking. The picture settings do not offer a mode for user preference or custom. Also the sound needs a slight bit more adjustability. The tv bezel looks good, but the stand looks and feels cheap. Its the down right ugliest stand on the market and mainly this is due to the grey plastic look. They should have made it rflective silver or plain black. I would only hang this tv on a wall do to the ugly stand. Now picture quality is off the charts good, until you get to 3D mode. This needs more adjustability so that the end user can fine tune it. So in closing I have mine recessed in the wall with wood trim and a 1/8 gap all the way around and it sound and looks good.

Awesome TV!

Awesome TV with very cool features. It exceeded my expectations so far. Picture quality is great after making certain calibrations. Best part is it can stream 3D movies from Netflix. Pros - Excellent Picture Quality - Excellent 3D Quality - -Nice Sound Quality - SMART TV works well as advertised. - Tv remote is pretty slick. Cons - Very hard to navigate the web browser using the TV remote. I tried navigating the web browser using SMART remote application through Samsung galaxy tablet but it still lacks the ability to navigate the browser easily. I guess all smart TVs has the same problem.

Great Greater Greatest

I was skeptical about buying a plasma, however after doing my research, thanks to representatives from HHgreg and Brandsmart including CNET I decided to buy this plasma. Just looking at this tv in the store from very close you observe some lines however this tv is excellent when I took it home, color are deep and superb, deep black, 3d is great and with all the features and programs you will never be bored. I watch a lot of sports and with the size and realistic color I feel like I'm on the sideline. I hate blurring with 600hz fast actions are smooth. For a flat panel the sound is decent.
