Comment:
I bought the product in April, 2013, replacing a Panasonic ZT60. The Panasonic was too dark and my entire family was displeased with it. This is a beautiful tv. I love all the hdmi inputs. I love the integration of bluetooth with all of our gadgets at home (smartphones, keyboards, etc.). The internet browser is the only problem. At times certain websites won't show up. A blank screen appears flashing. I have to come out of the input to correct it. Otherwise, it is a beauty. The 3-d effects have not impressed me yet. I bought 3-d movies and most will not show objects coming out at me. I can connect a usb external drive and it accepts it, unlike the Panasonic, where I had to buy a separate box to channel the signals through. This is the brightest plasma I have ever seen. the colors are very impressive, not washed out like lcd/led. The sound is kind of low. The volume control is slow to reach to the top, (too many clicks).
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I USE THIS AS THE FINAL PIECE IN MY HOME THEATRE SYSTEM. HAD TOUGH TIME DECIDING BETWEEN THE VIERA ZT, AND THIS! THE PRICE WAS BETTER, AND THE VIERA WAS WAAAY TOO DARK, TAKING TOO LONG TO ADJUST TO PROPER SETTING, AND HAD TO FIDGET WITH TOO MUCH. MY SAMSUNG IMMEDIATELY IMPRESSED FROM OUT OF BOX, NEVER THOUGH I MISSED SOOO MUCH FROM AVATAR, DREDD, ETC. ALL I CAN SAY, IS IT WAS WORTH IT, THIS 64 BEAUTY IS AN ENVY TO ALL MY FRIENDS, AND MY TEENAGERS LOOVE THE GAMING...PURE GENIOUS!! THE INTERACTIVE CONTROLS, ALBEIT TOOK TIME TO LEARN, IS PRETTY COOL!
