Summary: We got this TV after really looking at the differences between Plasma and LED and decided on Plasma because of the better picture quality and faster refresh rate. I am also a console gamer and this TV rocks for playing any first-person shooter! It has a dedicated game mode that reduces picture processing (read lag time) and it seems to work great. The picture quality on this TV is amazing and the resolution really shows.
Summary: Wow was blown away by this. Was replacing a 6 year old Sharp 51 inch LCD in my basement. Had heard plasma was good in darker areas and was proved right. Easy setup, love some of the smart features. I have some 3d Blu rays been watching on it and the pic is fabulous!!! Works well with my Bose surround system. Product is great for sports and movies which is what I mainly use for. Can't go wrong with this unit.
Samsung Quality Screen w/ 3D and many Smart TV Features

Summary: Couldn't ask for a better picture. Setting are easy once you realize that some aren't available in Smart Menu Settings. You must be in an input screen. Being that HDMI or whatever. Well built except for the stand. But it's better to have flexibility than a rigid unbending stand with no give. Love the remote for most things it's quick and easy to use, without being huge!
Superb picture, and I can even use it for shaving!

Summary: This set really does have phenomenally good picture quality, and is a real value, for the price. The Smart features are also impressive, and the 3D quality is good too. Sound is mediocre, as expected, but even a bit under-par by internal sound expectations. Mine has no buzz, even close up, and runs very cool. The Achilles heel though is the reflectivity, which is incredibly high, by any standard.
Summary: Superb picture in both 2D & 3D. I don't care for the glasses, as the battery housing is two-piece (use a coin to take the cover off); the cover isn't easy to align with the screw threads; and the small battery gets stuck inside the cover when you remove it. Active-shutter performance is flawless.
Summary: I have only had this TV for a few weeks, but so far I love it. It has so many features I haven't had a chance to figure all of them out yet. The set up is super easy. I hooked up a Samsung Blueray player and it set up the player by itself and the TV remote set up for the player right away. I didn't have to do any set up for it. When I was done watching the movie and turned off the player, the TV went back to the TV mode by itself. The 3D also works great.
Summary: I choose plasma for its low price and high refresh rate. I choose this specific TV for its mix of price and quality. I debated whether to go witha smart TV or not and I am glad that I choose the smart TV with 3D only 150 more than a comparable Samsung model with no smart or 3D. The 3D function is OK, using the built in converter for non 3D content. The smart hub is pretty handy, with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and many other services preloaded, just sign in.
Summary: It's a great TV for the price. My main complaint (I only have 3) is that sometimes faces seem washed out. This seems to happen more often with news reporters on remote broadcasts. The faces are missing subtle details and this makes them look flat. I made some adjustments in the settings and it is better. The problem hasn't gone away but I notice it less now. Otherwise, colors and details are spectacular. I got it just before the Winter Olympics and I'm glad I did.
Summary: Great tv for the price! The remote could be a bit more user friendly. But the picture is amazing and the smart hub is Awesome! Using your s4 as a remote and playing music and videos and pictures is easy and convenient!
Summary: My wife and I deliberated a lot on a new TV. She wanted LED(as did I at first) but after much research I found that Plasma can give more bang for the buck. I read a lot of reviews and although there were a couple of drawbacks, I felt I could live with them. When it arrived and I got it fired up I was blown away at the picture quality out of the box with no adjustments. What I expected vs What I got: Picture: I expected good.
