Conclusion: bought this on line at a very low price. I actually bought this particular tv to install in an existing cabinet so the overall dimensions were very important. Product fits well and I am very pleased with the deal.
Summary: TV was faulty (has a 3" wide green verticle bar on the screen) out of the box. Called Samsung support and was told a repair man will come to my house to fix it. It's been 4 days and my tv is still not repaired. In fact, I haven't even been contacted by the contractor. Guess I'll have to call them myself. Really disappointed.
Conclusion: I LOVED my Samsung plasma TV, BUT it recently got a big black line across the screen. This is $600-$800 to repair! I started looking it up and there are a slew of different Samsung models (plasma) that get this same problem between the 2-5 year mark. Beware, the problem only gets worse!
Summary: Great buy for quality of picture. Has built in adjustment feature that adjusts lighting for sporting events. Only notice it in Hockey games, put clarity is phenomenal. No problem following puck. Not a lot of features but picture can't be beat. Very happy with TV.
Summary: This TV is a very good value and has all the amazing qualities you would expect from a plasma television. The only thing that holds this TV back is the sound quality. It is pretty terrible so I would suggest having a soundbar or other alternative sound system in place of this TV's speakers
Summary: Nice TV for the money but access to the rear of the TV is limited and inconvenient when mounted on a wall. Really a two person project due to it's size. And this will become important when your TV starts turning itself on and off at will. And it will. I see a fix for it listed on the Samsung site but have yet to get to it due to I'll need help taking this big boy down again. Also, plan on getting a sound bar if you plan on watching movies.
Pros: Bright display, Inexpensive, Realistic color
Cons: Did not meet expectations, limited access to the rear of tv, Poor sound
Summary: After about a week of using it the video/audio goes in and out of sync. I go through all the steps as suggested in forums and get it corrected and then it slips out again. Some suggest it is a certain network flaw of which I won't mention. Some suggest certain cable stations are the culprit. Some say after pausing it can go out of sync. Very annoying. But a beautiful picture.
Pros: Bright display, Built-In Speakers, Durable, Inexpensive, Lightweight, Realistic color
Cons: Audio out of sync, Did not meet expectations
