Summary: Like many others, I purchased this TV after weeks of going back and forth between "Should I buy LED or Plasma?". I went to the big box stores to compare, read professional reviews, and customer reviews. My biggest concern was lighting. My living room has a lot of windows and my old DLP TV was so hard to see during the day. I wanted something bright enough to compensate for this.
Summary: I'm coming from a 6 year old 46 inch Samsung LCD and have never owned a plasma before. So my review will be based around the differences I noticed between my old LCD and the ST50. Pros: 1. Image reproduction is all around amazing. Black levels are deep and the contrast is amazing. 2. When playing games (Consoles and PC) that are 60 FPS, the ST50 handles the motion like a champ with no blur in my eyes. 3. It upscales 720p very well.
