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!
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!!!
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.
Excellent picture with tons of features all at a great price

Summary: As far as plasmas go, you cannot beat the value this TV is. There may be plasmas with slightly better pictures, and a few more features, but they are nowhere near the price this set is going for. Samsung's top of the line plasma, which is only 1 step above this in their line is double the price.
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.
sold choice as long as you don't mind glare and don't have an older receiver

Summary: I honestly feel my 3yr old samsung 50" plasma has a better overall picture. That being said, overall this is a fine plasma TV that will give you a better picture than any LED out there. Movies look amazing and the colors are really consistent.
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.
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.
Summary: Although I had done my "homework" by checking ConsumerReports.org first, as well as other HDTV review sites, I really didn't expect the quality of this TV to be so great. It is the first HDTV that my wife and I have owned, and the first new TV purchased in 18 years (Previously a 53" Sony projection...
