Complaint / review text:
Samsung is a brand name you would normally associate with good products, which is why we chose the 58" Samsung Plasma TV (PN58C500) over the others available. Less than 2 years of ownership, the TV developed purple and pink banding across the screen. An Internet search shows this is a common problem and there are various fixes suggested, but it's a general hit or miss if those repairs actually work. We called in a repairman, and he said the whole panel would have to be replaced, which would cost more than the TV itself. I contacted Samsung, and even though it's a known issue, they said, "too bad." They have offered zero assistance in the matter. I will never buy another Samsung product again. $1,400 down the drain.
