I am VERY happy with this one!

By Bob the Runner Verified Reviewer from CT on 04/14/2010


Pros:

Great Lighted Remote, Easy To Use Setup Menu, Attractive Cabinet, Intuitive Menu Controls, Very Deep Blacks, Awesome Picture Quality

Cons:

Sound Less Than Expected

Best Uses:

Family Room, Living Room

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I use this television in our family room. I watch HD programming exclusively (including sports and movies) and for watching BluRay movies. Action sports look fine. I don't notice any jittering during action sequences. No hum from speakers as some have reported. The quality of the speakers isn't quite as good as the speakers in my older 46" Samsung plasma television but I am guessing the thinness of the television meant compromising with the speakers. There are, however, sound settings so you can choose one to your liking. I did a lot of research before choosing this model but I definitely was focusing on Samsung because I have used another Samsung plasma television (46") for three years and loved it. That has now been moved to our den. Samsung makes an excellent plasma television. I couldn't be happier. I thought of going with a more expensive television but after having this one for two weeks now, I am pleased I chose this model. A ton of plasma television for the money!

Gangster TV

No Buzz - get this TV before it is gone!!!

By matt3matt from SACRAMENTO, CA on 03/21/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Forget what you read about the BUZZING. Before buying I read every review there was. I figured about 15% of the buyers were getting the buzzers. I was actually going to get the 650 to save money, get there ever so slightly deeper black and not get the ultra coolness factor of a 1.2" TV. I couldn't actually get the 650 locally and I just don't like to buy this kind of stuff online in case anything goes wrong. I made a calculated risk and went for the 860 and man is this thing impressive. Solid. NO BUZZING or any weaknesses what-so-ever. Buy this TV before it is gone. Check out Cnet's review. They rate it the very highest - best of all TV 50"-53". Noooo Buzzzzz!!! The other complaint is the sound. I'd say it is adequate, but who really buys a TV like this and doesn't add separate speakers?! You can use the TVs speakers as a perfect faux center channel fill... SERIOUSLY!!! TAKE A CHANCE ON THIS TV!!!

Sounds like a bad ballast in a fluorescent light.

By Canandaigua from Canandaigua, NY on 03/13/2010


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We've owned this tv for about a month now. The buzzing can be heard distinctly from 20 feet no matter what volume the tv is at. We don't live at an altitude. We've had two service technitions look at it and both said that buzzing is normal for a plasma tv. One even told me that LCD tvs buzz like that too. Well, I've tested every one of my friends tvs and can't hear anything from inches away when thier tvs are on mute. My girlfriend and I can hear this tv buzzing from 40 feet when it is muted. Still working with Samsung to try and fix this issue.

Stunning

By JohnP22 from Undisclosed on 01/24/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

After almost 4 weeks with this TV, I'm very impressed with the stunning images on sports, movies and regular cable programming. I have a fairly bright room and was worried about using a plasma there, but the picture is very bright and the anti-glare glass on the display works really well. I've read numerous reviewers here commenting on the 'buzzing' issue. I don't have any perceptible buzz. The remote and menus are easy to use. I couldnt be more satisfied.

Excellent value but...

By peteg from Columbia, SC on 12/29/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

So I have had no problems with my 860 for the past month and have been very happy with it until today. I turned on the TV to watch some football and the previously mentioned buzzing struck. Overall I am happy with the TV's performance although I have not figured out how to make my Bluray look like it does at the store (almost as if you are actually watching them on stage). I guess I have to make some calls and see what needs to be done with the buzzing. I will get post remarks on after purchase service as it happens (or doesn't).

Outstanding TV

By buckeye9 from Dayton, OH on 12/11/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had this set for about 4 weeks now and just love it. I watch a lot of sports and the picture is outstanding. The colors are very true. It's almost like watching the game in person. I looked at a lot of plasma TV's. It came down to the Samsung and Sony Bravia. For me the color quallity was the biggest factor that made me choose the Samsung. I have had no problem with the buzzing sound experienced by others. In fact this TV is so quiet I can't hear any kind of buzzing noise at all.

Incredible Picture Quality

By DavidSternberg from Monroe, NY on 12/05/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I just received my television yesterday. So far there is no buzzing. Picture is breathtaking without making any adjustments. I do not use the audio on the TV as I have it hooked up to my AV Receiver via optical cable. Tested with Blu-Ray, Cable TV (Cablevision), Roku, Internet Access, PC All worked without issue. Only gripe so far is that internet access via Yahoo Widgets is slow.

AWSUME Picture

By Mikeyy from Undisclosed on 12/03/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best TV I've ever owned. The picture is crisp, clear and as close to the real deal as being there. Watching sports is unbelievable. Not sure why some consumers have complained about the buzzing sound? Unless you stand next to the TV, you cant even notice it. Great product. The only negative is the speaker quality very little base.

amazing TV aside from the BUZZZING!!!

By bendavido from Los Angeles, CA on 10/23/2009


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

got my Samsung PN50B860 last week and mounted it on the wall.... tv looks so sexy and the picture quality is amazing!!! BUT I want to shoot myself after about 10 minutes of watching TV because of load buzzing.... blasting the volume to try to drown the buzz is annoying and I am getting headaches now from the constant "bee-hive noise".... I am sitting about 12 feet away from the TV. So I called Samsung and they sent out a repairman who said this was normal buzzing!!! WHAT?!?!?!? (he was an older gentleman - probably a little hard of hearing) so after i made him sit down in front of it for about 5 minutes (with the volume on low, like how i have it in the evenings) he agreed that it was louder than 'normal' and that he would order parts for it.... however, based on reading peoples responses on the internet, sounds like there is no real "fix" for it yet (maybe the new rubber washer trick on the Y-board will work).... as of now, i am so disappointed in this TV and would hate to switch to a Panasonic Plasma or downgrade to a Samsung LCD TV (just to have a quite set).... When spening this much for a plasma TV, you expect the best quality, if not you can buy 50" sets now for under $700....

Great Looking but problems

By MAC from East Windsor, NJ on 09/25/2009


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I'll keep this short... The TV is gorgeous out of the box. It simply looks great, very stylish all around. The picture is also great, deep blacks (as you would expect from a plasma). Settings are easy to move through, lots of options and very intuitive. The bad... like others have said, my TV has a very loud BUZZ. It sounds like the normal "plasma buzz" that plasma TVs give off but 10 times as loud. I can hear it from 12 feet back with the volume at 15. It ruins the TV experience. I have contacted Samsung and their customer service was very understanding and helpful in setting up a service call, so that's a plus. However upon doing some more searching it seems like MANY more people with 2009 plasmas are experiencing the same problem.. And that's a huge bummer because aside from this major issue, the TV is a 9+ in picture/value/style.

Buzzing

By hanano17 from Orlando, FL on 09/22/2009


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Well, I love what this set could be. That is, if it didn't buzz and annoy me while watching it, i'd be in love. Great design, great picture, great extras....bad buzz. The buzzing noise is not a normal plasma buzz, i've done plenty of research on this tv and I even went and listened to other plasmas...this isn't a normal noise....it's an annoying noise. Samsung has been helpful thus far though, I have a repair guy coming to look at it...though I know from my research they will fail to fix it. From what i've heard, you either get a buzzer or you don't. So hopefully I can get it exchanged and get a nonbuzzing set, otherwise I will seek a refund and wait for the 8500!

nice design, bad performance

Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This was a new set exchange for a previous years plasma model. The set is beautiful out of the box. Thin design, great AR filter. However, it buzzes very loudly. This is not normal plasma hum. It's a loud and varying buzzing sound that increases and decreases based on the brightness of the picture being shown. It is audible at 12-15 feet away with the volume on the tv set to 15. Not normal buzz. After 5 repairs on my previous set, Samsung decided to exchange my old set for this new set. Already had one repair visit on the B860 by a samsung service tech. Now I have to have another panel exchange. After having to take 7 days off from work for repairs and deliveries, I now have to take another day off for another panel exchange. Customer Service is great, repair centers are great. Products are faulty.
