This Samsung 50' is decent.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: We bought this Tv from Best Buy, which is another story, and i won't go there. But this Tv seemed decent enough when we bought it. I really loved the looks of it, the nice sleek and shiny frame and stand that came with it, the remote, though rather large, is easy enough to find and doesn't get lost in the couch cushions. The buttons on the front are actually pretty cool, they aren't buttons so much as touch-sensitive areas of the frame.
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.
