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: If your looking for an excellent looking plasma TV at a great price, this TV is for you. Now that Panasonic has gotten out of the plasma business, that leaves more opportunity for Samsung. I was looking for a no frills TV, but with an excellent picture, I got that in this TV. This is a "dumb" TV. What that means is there is no 3D, no Apps like You Tube or Pandora. So you save a few hundred dollars with this TV by not getting those extras.
Summary: TV arrived in excelent shape. It was easy to connect. The picture is incretable. Very clear, great depth of field. The plasma screen does reflect other light sources in the room. I can't say enough about the picture quality when showing HD signals.
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: I got this because I wanted a big TV without all the "smart" bells and whistles. I have an xbox for all of that internet type stuffs. Picture is superb. I have never used the speakers cause I have a Bose surround system so I cannot tell you about the sound. If you have a TV this big, you better be rocking a surround system anyway... You will not find a better picture and refresh rate than you will get with a plasma.
Summary: Tv showed up in great condition, actually received it on a Saturday, wasn't expecting that. Tv is absolutely amazing, picture looks awesome. Very easy to adjust the picture settings. All around great buy!
