Great TV with one small problem. (unless you like fansubs, then it's a big problem.)
16 November 2010
Summary: This television will play almost anything from a thumb drive I throw at it. It has it's own built in media center for playing video and music via USB and network. However it lacks .SSA and .ASS subtitle support which are the major two that fansub groups use. So I can either convert all subtitles to .SRT or not watch them on my Television. Samsung should add support for these two subtitle formats and this television would be a 5 out of 5 for me.
Summary: This is a review of the 2010 50" Samsung Plasma TV, PN50C590. I have owned this unit for a week. I am comparing this set to my 2009 46" Panasonic Plasma TV, U series. This Samsung 50" is the top of the line for the Samsug 500 series. Pros: 1) It has a swivel base which the Pansonic does not. 2) The appearance of the physical set is simple and attractive. 3) The TV picture is excellent as is the Panasonic.
