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...
Summary: I was looking for a 50-51 inch screen for the kids room. The price was right on the 6500 and it was loaded with connectivity, 1080P, 3-D, and everything I was looking for, but at a really great price point.
Summary: Just gonna throw in my likes on this awesome plasma. Picture is great. viewing angle is unbelievable (they should just say view from any direction) The Smarthub is the future of tv, jump on, it's only gonna grow bigger. THE FLASH DRIVE ACCESS.
Summary: Take out of box,plug in,beware of scrolls and logo's tweak slightly for a week or so and enjoy.Samsung outdid themselves on this one.Not the high end refinement of an 8000 or 7000 but way more than satisfactory.3D is very good and I am learning the "smart" part as I go.Had to upgrade my internet...
Summary: After 3 months I am still impressed by this TV, the picture quality is excellent & so is the sound. I have zero complaints & i would recommend this TV to anyone that is considering buying a HD TV.
Summary: It's only fair that I preface my review by admitting this is my first HD television. Comparing it to the 32" SDTV I previously owned is...well...not realistic, or worthwhile. And needless to say, I can't compare it against any HDTV I've owned previously.
Summary: After reading the pros and cons on plasmas - I decided that for the money it was the way to go. I was correct. The picture is great. You have to go and select the best sound for you since the speakers are in the back. For me movie sound mode works.
Summary: Upgrading from a 37" Vizio LCD television, I was immediately blown away by the high contrast, rich colors and overall design. The TV has tons of settings to customize the picture to your needs, or can be viewed with the 4 default picture settings (Dynamic, Standard, Movie, Relaxed).
Summary: I have not used or likely will attempt to use any Smart TV features. You WILL notice when programs are broadcast in 720p and not 1080i - which is funny b/c i previously had 32" samsung 720p LCD.
Pros: Fantastic picture, great for my HTPC and home theater. NFS hot pursuit is kick-a** on this thing! Definitely better than LCD with all the backlight bleed problems. Some glare on the screen depending on light but it is definitely not bad at all.
Cons: not cheap? oh it comes with screws for the stand - 2 types. one of which were supposed to be M4 8mm machine screws but the one i got had 2 sets of screws for the plastic side. Ran to hardware store and picked up the proper ones but poor QC by samsung.
