Do Not Buy
11 April 2012
Summary: To reply to repete66211, this is a widespread issue. The pink hues on my PN50A550 have been getting worse and worse. Its time, after almost a year and a half, to replace this TV! I would suggest to anyone that wants to buy a good plasma, do your research and do not buy into Samsung's plasma lines.
Pros: Great picture, until it comes to very white pictures.
Cons: Bright white pictures on this TV display a pink hue that is getting worse and worse through the days of usage and Samsung, though this is a known issue, says it is not.
Summary: I purchased 2 of these. YES 2! I have also owned previous Samsung models FP-T5084 (2007 model)plasma 1080P [I provided a review for this on Amazon as well], HP-5053 (2006 model) plasma 720P. and the LN-S4095 (2006 model) 1080P LCD. So yes I would consider myself a Samsung Fanboy. So I bought this model twice for a reason I will explain later in the review.
My first one spontaneously cracked on me and Samsung at the time refused to replace it.
Summary: Ordered a brand new PN50A550 Oct 2oth, 2009. It took one week for shipping. Upon arrival I inspected it and looked fine. After taking a hour to set up, I enjoyed the picture for few minutes before noticing a bright line 2 pixels wide going across the middle of the screen. It was much more noticable with lighter backgrounds. To my great disappointment, I called the vendor and they would not ship another plasma if you accepted the shipping.
