A practical review from a techie who appreciates quality
18 June 2013
Summary: If you are looking for a TV for ~1k, look no further. My wife and I debated the merits of plasma vs. LCD's and ended up diving into the plasma arena. After a good week of viewing a lot of different content and playing some games, I can say that we are truly happy that we chose plasma over LCD.
Summary: Received the TV in less than a week. Delivery guys brought it in the house, unwrapped & placed it on the stand. It was cold out so they couldn't turn it on. It has been running for 6 weeks. Beautiful picture after I set it up (after the 100 hour break-in) to the custom specs from CNET.
Summary: A beautiful television set with almost everything you need in today's HiTech world. It's plasma, it's Smart and it shows 3D. In fact it's even able to convert 2D media to 3D (with the push of a button on the remote).
Summary: If you're anything like me you have taken a lot (see days) of time reading reviews to make a decision. I read every review I could read on the first 10 pages of a "best HDTV under 1000" Google search.
Summary: If you dont know about tv technology let me tell you plasma trounces led in almost every circumstance. Black levels refresh rate and color accuracy are all dramatically superior. The best part is that plasma is cheaper than led as well.
Summary: I have this set mounted on my bedroom wall. The picture quality is great. I'm using the built-in speakers so the sound isn't as good as the sound is on my living room set which is connected to 5.1 sound system but it's certainly good enough for the room the set is in.
Summary: This is my first plasma television. I loved the picture on a friend's Samsung Plasma during football season and decided to get this TV. Believe the great reviews by CNET, Plasma TV Buying Guide, Consumer Reports, and other users. Awesome black levels, contrast, depth of picture, and color.
