Summary: Very pleased with this TV so far. Only used for a week now, so I can't speak to the durability yet. I wasn't looking for a Smart TV and I wanted an upgrade from my old 32" 60hz lcd. I didn't want the 'soap opera effect' that a 120hz TV had, so I was really aiming for a plasma. Also, the size was just perfect for my living room/entertainment center. I read a lot of the reviews and checked CNET, and the pros out-weighed any cons for me. Yes it is a pretty glossy set.
I had heard that this was superior picture quality so I decided to buy

Summary: I purchased 2 of these TVs. One was for my parents and the other for my brother. I was hesitant because I was going from 1080p LCD to 720p Plasma. I had heard that this was superior picture quality so I decided to buy. I set these up and aside from turning off the ECO feature, no other adjustments needed to be made. The picture quality is superb! They are really happy with it and we couldn't have made a better decision.
Summary: I bought this TV In 2011 for about $620 and I tell you for sure I would do it again in a heart beat. At the $400 price range it is a steal. Its picture quality is outstanding; you'll notice if you go to the big box stores they always have Samsung on a aisle by themselves; there is a reason for that. Because whatever Samsung TV is currently out makes all others look sub-standard.
Summary: I don't use the TV for watching TV, so I can't really review it accurately. However, as a computer display, it works great, as long as you don't sit too close (you can see the pixels if you do). Surprisingly, the native resolution is 1024x768, but there are several supported 16:9 resolutions. However, if you set it to anything other than 1024x768, be sure to go into menu, then select "picture", then "picture size", and then set it to "screen fit".
Summary: Don't buy. No good. Samsung plasma TV'S are junk. They end up getting a internal crack in the screen. I've only had this tv for 6 months and it happened out of nowhere, without any physical damage. Samsung will not repair or replace even if you still have warranty. So please don't buy!!!
Summary: Brilliant deep rich image. Screen reflective, but not a problem for my use. 720p is beautiful as I watch my 51 inch from 14 feet away. Found great deal at brick and mortar, local walmart who had great warranty offerings. I normallynstream netflix, prime, youtube, etc.., with older i3 laptop hooked onto broadband wifi. Satisfied and enjoying an image quality of much more expensive non plasma.
Summary: This is the Best Investment to my home theater that I could have made. Price to Value for this TV is amazing and the image quality is better than $1500 displays. Buy this up before they become extinct. You won't regret it.
