Summary: the tv was wonderful out of the box. i loved it. 9 months in, the screen cracked on me. i contacted samsung. the only thing samsung did for me was give me the runnaround. they had me jump through a bunch of hoops by taking pictures of the sides, back, front of the tv and providing my contact info, serial # asap. after getting all of that done, they tell me, "sorry, we can't do anything for you b/c the cause of the damage was from an 'impact.
SAMSUNG and 'sourcing' input control re its TV monitors
WT (Bill) "Bill H, PhoneGuy, BC", Amazon

Summary: Samsung PN51E6500 51-Inch 1080p 600Hz 3D Slim Plasma HDTV (Black) This is the second time I've come across a situation whereby a SAMSUNG monitor will NOT allow the owner to select his/her 'preferred' default source input. Also, one will often see a desired input 'listed'(ie PC) ...but it's 'greyed out' and NOT accessible for use (even tho the physical plug-in is there on the back of the monitor!).
Summary: Amazing TV. This tv is thinner than my LCD tv,and weighs about the same. The picture is incredible, smooth action. I didn't buy it for the 3D, but I find myself watching it as often as possible. Even 2D to 3D conversion is awesome. I have a Samsung flatscreen LCD that is great, but this blows it away. Plasma is not only competitive, it's better.
Summary: Couldn't ask for more. Very easy set up, great picture quality, razor thin screen and blu rays look phenomenal. I managed to get mine on an eBay Daily Deal for $799 w/ free shipping- best deal ever... I haven't tested the 3D functionality because I don't really care for 3D TV and the Smart TV feature is somewhat pointless but I bought it for the picture, not the gimmicks.
Summary: I absolutely love this TV!!! We were looking for a bigger flat screen and my son in law saw this one and sent me the link to check it out! I got a great deal and we are glad that we bought it!
EXCELLANT HDTV BUT DOES NOT SUPPORT AMAZON PRIME VIDEO
6 April 2012
Summary: I purchased almost the identical (50 inch vs. 51 inch) model about a year an a half ago and have been extremely pleased with it. I wanted another TV for my den and bought this model which I assumed would be practically identical to my other one other than the size of the frame. However, Samsung decided on this newer model to NOT support my Amazon Prime videos. This was not the fault of Amazon.
Summary: Bought 51d6500 the 2nd of January, rec'd Jan 10th and shortly after watching the Superbowl, (Feb 5th) it just shutoff and wont turn back on. A problem I have read about here on the comment page. Amazon is out of stock and will give me a refund, but now the TV is much higher from other sellers. I also noticed the brightness pops but I found it didnt bother me all the time.
Summary: Samsung PN51D490 51-Inch 720p 600Hz 3D Plasma HDTV (Black) i love this tv the 3d looks awsome and i can't believe the price!!! i didn't purchase it from amazon this time, although the online company that i purchased it from was not willing to help me samsung has gone out of their way to accomedate us. My television broke shortly after i purchased it and samsung immedietley sent someone over to fix the problem.
