I believe this is the cheapest this TV has been.
No reviews online, but it's still a good price for a well specced 60" 3D Plasma TV.

Is it in stock? Not clear from the product page.

Look like stock is due soon.

Bargain if it comes in stock, strange that Samsung have changed panel sizes once again, It was a 59" and 64" last year?

Is this any good?

It's huge and it's plasma and it's a good price? What is the picture quality like on this set?

I have the 2011 59" D550, the picture quality still amazes me to this day. It's very good.

8000 plasma is a beauty as well

Really tempted by this but a little worried about the weight. 60" plasma is going to be damn heavy and I'm not sure my glass tv unit would support it........... New unit as well????

If you can get in to the sonic store in Bradford you can negotiate too... I got £125 off my panasonic made it £75 cheaper than anywhere else in the UK with a 5yr warranty.

Also most of their stuff won't be in stock, they get it in 3/4 days after your purchase

old plasma's were heavy, i can lift my 50" GT50B easily, i struggled to lift my old 42" PZ85B on the other hand. i would guess this is hard to handle physically but the weight should be no problem for any decent unit.

Weight:
Set without Stand: 27.5Kg
Set with Stand: 30.1Kg
Package: 38.3Kg

Wow 60 inches.

What more could a woman want

Lots of comments on this thread on AV Forums (seems QVC did a similar deal). Also alot of people getting them delivered in the next day or so.

Very tempted myself tbh to replace my 50" panny.

Key comments seem to be overall good for the price, but very reflective screen and blacks not amazing.

Stick with the panny. Cant beat Panasonic when it comes to Plasmas.

Panny is about 5 years old and only 720P and no 3D.

Been thinking about upgrading for a while.

I wouldn't just stick to panasonic and disown all other brands like that.

Samsung are really good manufactures and their plasma's don't have a lot of the issues pansonic panels have.

I own a 51" Samsung D8000 (living room) and a 50" Panasonic GT50B (bedroom), yes the panasonic has better PQ but the samsung is no slouch.

I go for bang for buck and when i purchased the samsung last year there was no good deals to be had on panasonic sets. The D8000 was £769 with free 5 year warranty and 2 sets of 3d glasses. Other sets I was looking at at the time were the GT50 and the E8000 but they were £1400 and £1600 each. So i chose the D8000 because it offered the best value for money.

I did then this year eventually buy the GT50 when it was reduced to £799 with free 5 year warranty and 2 sets of 3d glasses.

I would always advocate go for the best value for money, there is no 60" Panasonic for £1000 that I am aware of, so I would say this Samsung is well worth it. They also do not seem to have as many defects as Panasonic panels have. Luckily my panny panel is defect free afaik but a lot of people have had terrible ones.

is this the 3d that requires the expensive glasses or the cheaper ones?

It's active 3D which require shutter glasses (the expensive ones).

Passive 3D uses the cheap ones.

They are the 'expensive' ones but there are samsung active 3D glasses that can be bought for just £15 now so not bad anymore.

Got mine delivered on Thursday from QVC great TV.

sonicdirect.co.uk/Pla…See they have 55" Panasonic plasma with 5 years guarantee for same price.


The reason I would go for this over a Panasonic is the Smart features like all the catch up apps for the tv channels etc.

Absolutely crazy doing that - you could buy a £50-60 2013 Samsung Blu-ray player to get those Smart TV functions ...

I love how you say 'expensive' haha... i have 2 young kids that would go through at least a pair of these a week, probably more! at 52 pairs of glasses to the cost of this TV and its not as attractive :-)

If they break something that you buy in a week they need a good old clip round the ear (Sorry PC Crew) . Nah my Nephews who are 3,3 and 5 use the samsung ones at my sisters and they have been fine.

i don't know who has the lower IQ tbh, your kids for continually breaking them or you for continuing to buy them after they continue to break them.

Says £1,049.99 ? or am i missing something?

I've just ordered one (well earlier today) - they had 6 on order, and I got the 6th.

After ordering I got a call telling me they'd be delayed at least 2 weeks - and that they have increased the order to 16 units. However they've also put the price up by £50 (hence the price you're seeing now). Thankfully I got it at the original price

It is still the cheapest I could find - and seems many places are limited on stock.

Took a while before I decided to order, reading reviews etc etc. But for the price - its pretty much a no brainer

The mirror-like reflective screen on this Samsung 60" has put me off ...:(.....have a look at the photo's in page 9 on this thread to see what i mean....

this happens with all plasma's the guy has done that on purpose.

for some reason he has decided to place his tv facing the window.

a plasma should never have any light in front of the screen.

therefore when buying a plasma make sure you place all room lighting behind the screen or all windows with sunlight behind the screen.

i own 2 plasma's and yes they are reflective but i know i need to dim the lights or close the curtains to stop them from reflecting.

since most people are at work during the day and home at night, this usually isnt a problem, unless your on benefits.

Good find but a little out of my price range, my 5 year old full HD panny th50pz70 plasma just died, have £850 to spend was going to go for LED to save on the juice. Any ideas ???? Was considering a Toshiba 55vl963 for £800 it has 3D and seems to get reasonable reviews, either that or the samsung EH5300 that Asda are doing for £700.

Does 5" make a difference (behave children), Is 3D just a gimmick

Please help.

anybody know if it works wirelessly with Sonos Soundbar?

Still waiting for delivery here

Now "In Stock" and I'll be getting mine delivered early next week (at last!).

tempted
