Summary: This is our 3rd...and largest, plasma and the picture is just awesome. Shipping was great and the tv was delivered and unpacked in my basement. My father bought the smaller 51 inch. I have always preferred plasma and am happy to see Samsung has made a committent to this technology. Even with FREE shipping and unpacking service, Amazon did a price match and saved me another$60. Worth every penny.
Summary: Because this tv has an optical audio out connection, I did not have to upgrade my favorite Harman-Kardon receiver which accepts optical audio inputs but not HDMI. Now I can listen to audio through the tv speakers or through the receiver when I want great sound. Ka-ching! Money saved!
Summary: Saved a few hundred bucks by ordering from Amazon warehouse deals. I haven't checked yet to see how many hours were on the TV, but it had been repacked into the box it was sold in and still had the plastic on the screen and everything. The box was REALLY beat up, but after inspecting, mounting and plugging in, everything works great! TV looks awesome hung up on the wall (and with the wiring PROPERLY run inside the wall).
Summary: Pro's: Picture quality is outstanding. Audio is much better than with an LED - not excellent, but you don't have to always have an auxiliary sound source in use. Great value $. Highly recommended TV. Efficient (compared to older Plasma's). Con's: Screen is highly reflective. Stand is too tall. (The reflectivity of the screen is what keeps this from 5 stars for me).
