Summary: This is our first HD TV, we've seen other plasmas and LED's and they don't compare to the Samsung, the clarity in HD is awesome! I'm not a huge TV sports watcher, but I'm hooked on football, the detail you see on this TV takes viewing to a new level, with the big screen it truly is as close to being there as you can get. Many of the complaints I've read about plasma vs.
Summary: Have had this about a month now; love the picture. I can't use the Samsung remote for changing channels or sound control as I'm connected with HDMI. Don't know what's going on with that, set up should be a absolutely straightforward with HDMI; but have this glitch going on. Other than that really love it so far, but have too many remotes sitting around.
Summary: I purchased this during the 2011 Black Friday deals event- spectacular pricing on a spectacular television. My family is not fond of 3D anything, so I can't tell you how this TV performs in that area. I can tell you that we are gamers and this is our first plasma television. I've owned an LED television, as well as an LCD rear projection television, sony and samsung respectively. I preferred the Samsung Menu so after much deliberation chose this model as the successor!
Summary: Looked forward to receiving my Samsung51" in time for New Years only to have it delivered with a broken screen(several breaks) dent on back and beat up box(Looks like FedEx got a hold of it).Now I have to wait to be refunded since I didn't buy it from Amazon but another vendor on their site.If you buy from Amazon they would send a replacement immediatley.
Summary: Extended warranty company said repair of light engine on my 5 year old rear projection TV was more expensive than a replacement. I used their check to pay for most of the price of this TV with 3d Blu-ray player and 3D kit with 2 pair of glasses, 4 Shrek 3D Blu-rays and a coupon for Megamind 3D. Picture looked great in stores and better in my home. Did not notice difference from Panasonic which many rate better. Glare in not a problem even with a lamp on beside me.
