Summary: Have owned this for about a month now. This replaced our Sony 55 inch LED which only lasted for 4.5 years before the panel died. Not impressed with Sony as several products I have owned over the years did not live up to the hype. The difference in the picture between the new plasma and the LED is like night and day. The plasma picture is outstanding. It does have a problem with glare in a well lit room.
Summary: For the money, discounted to $550 or so, this set cannot be beat . . . assuming you can control the lighting in the room. As many have learned, Samsung is ceasing manufacture of plasma displays in November, 2014, joining Panasonic and LG is likely to follow. This set does not compare with the industry-leading F8500 series, the "last great plasma" and perhaps the only plasma currently available suitable for bright rooms. The F8500 is several times the price, however.
Summary: The colors on this tv are unbelievable. To even comprehend how astounding the colors look on this tv, you would need to build a rocket that flies just fast enough to circle the earth as the sun is setting. Here you would need to be tripped out on the most potent drugs that money can buy, constantly holding your eyes open (eyedrops probably required), and staring into the setting sun for a minimum of 15 days.
Summary: This is our first HD tv and we have been wowed. We went back and forth between plasma and LCD and selected the plasma. No regrets.We are able to watch this tv from any position in the room. Our previous tv was a 32 inch and the new one is 51 inch. Just like our memories of the drive in theaters. We can't watch it enough or say enough about how it has improved the quality of our lives. Also very happy with the brightness and clarity. You can't go wrong purchasing this tv.
Pros: Beautiful picture with inky blacks and smooth motion. 24p BluRays look amazing with no judder. Just got Xbox One and it makes up for no 3D or wifi. Input lag is said to be poor but I have had no issue, even without Game Mode on.
Cons: Reflective screen but I watch all my TV in the dark. Very slight greying of the blacks when watching in darkness but it beats and LED all day.
Summary: I recently purchased this plasma Tv replacing a Panasonic plasma that is the same size..Picture quality is by far better than the Panasonic...Much crisper image and the colors at more vibrant and the sound is perfect.Very pleased so far....
****DO NOT WASTE HARD EARNED MONEY ON SAMSUNG TELEVISIONS****
Just Sayin', Amazon

Summary: *****W A R N I N G***** Do not buy SAMSUNG Televisions!!! Maybe $2,500.00 - $3,000.00 is not a lot of money for some folks to spend on a television, but it is to me. This is money I'll never get back, nor derive true enjoyment, nor value from due to the DEFECTIVE SAMSUNG product that I purchased.
