Thanks, Tiles...because I had my 63c7000 replaced multiple times because of buzzing, the retailer said I could return the 63c7000 and pick another set.....I was thinking on waiting on the Panna VT30 as opposed to Samsung again as the really ticked me off with the c7000......is the d8000 of a top end spec like the VT30 or should i wait??
That's a tough one mate.. for me I could not justify to the mrs spending the extra cash on the panasonic otherwise I probly would have bought last years panna.
But with the D8000 I basically got the tv I should have had last year with 3d working the way it should.
They are all gonna have their problems including the samsungs and panasonics. Yea the samsung still has judder with panning shots but I think most plasmas this size will be fairly noticable with this problem (the panasonic also I believe). But sports and fast motion look great. As automan said the line bleed is fairly minimal but is inherant of plasma technology and is on the panasonic too.
Just depends what problems are really going to annoy you most. Overall though the samsung is a great television with definately improved blacks (especially under lights - hello real black filter), 3d that works and the usual very accurate colours from samsung when dialled in properly ofcourse. And a great (in my opinion) looking bezel which really sets it off. Just try and camoflage the spider stand
Most reviews have both sets very close with most edging the VT30 in front slightly because of barely darker black levels. But many have the D8000 in front in a few other areas. Either set should make you happy. I've have actually had a few moments lately when I've been watching something and gone "Geez that looks bloody unreal!!", and I haven't done that in a while with tv (especially watching free-to-air).
