Summary: The Samsung PN63A760 brings a huge feature set and enormously different styling, but its picture quality fell short of the tough competition.
Pros: Accurate primary colors; effective antireflective screen; includes a smooth dejudder mode; unbridled feature set including network streaming, built-in interactive content and news, stocks and weather feeds; broad selection of picture setup options; distinctive styling including red-tinted swivel stand.
Cons: Reproduces relatively light black levels; less accurate grayscale, especially in dark areas; Smooth mode introduces artifacts and doesn't work with 1080p sources; most interactive content seems tacked on; streaming doesn't support third-party DLNA servers; its red color design isn't for everyone.

Excerpt: The Samsung PN63A760 63-inch plasma HDTV is a tinkerer's delight. It has more settings, modes and adjustments that any plasma HDTV I looked at while shopping. There are numerous temperature controls, white balance and brightness settings. I can switch to various widescreen or standard screen and it has a 2:3 drop down options.
