Rated 5 out of 5 by SIMPLY ASTONISHING I waited a few weeks before writing this review because I wanted to spend some quality time with this TV. I am a plasma addict. I now have three plasmas and they are all by Samsung. I have a 43 inch in my bedroom and this 64 inch just replaced my 2009 Reference Samsung 50 inch plasma. Even the 43 inch will put many LED TV's to shame and I thought that my 2009 plasma was awesome....but THIS one! OMG I have never seen a panel like this before. Dare I say that is approaches 4K? To me, it's like 3K. The panel is so dimensional until I can hardly believe it. The colors pop, the blacks are right and the viewing experience is like no other., and that's not even being calibrated! Something that I'm going to get a professional to do in the near future. Why people buy LED TV's I may never understand because plasma TV's are just so awesome. The only other technology that can surpass this plasma is OLED...something that I've had the pleasure to see with my own eyes. One reason I bought this TV is because I knew that Samsung isn't going to make plasmas anymore which is such a shame because they do it so well. This was my chance to get Samsung's last and greatest plasma and boy is it great. I've run out of adjectives to describe it to my friends and family and when they come over to see it, they are equally speechless. Samsung, I am so sad to have learned that you aren't making plasmas anymore, but thank you for offering your last and must I say, your Masterpiece. Next TV? A flat 4K OLED ~75 inches and at a REASONABLE price (Do it Samsung!) That may be years away, but I can wait because I have this beauty to look at. November 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clarity and wow blacks Still getting to know this product as I just purchased it but so far it lives up to CNET reviews. Picture is great and the device is quite a bit lighter than the typical Plasma. The 3D picture is one of the best I have seen. October 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Picture is Excellent The Picture quality is excellent. It is easy to use and when you add surround sound the TV experience just draws you into the picture. The only draw back is having to upgrade the software from time to time. September 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply amazing picture Best quality picture of any plasma TV on the market. Has true black. Black to white contrast is awesome. Light weight. HDMI ports plug in from the side. Attractive bezel and nice stand. August 10, 2014
