Great bang for the bucks, but audio side is all right.

Summary: I have owned this TV since 2009. Never had a problem, the tv has a great image and 720p is more than enough for my viewing distance. This review doesn't have a 5 stars because of the audio performance.
Summary: It has been my primary TV for 5 years, for football games, Netflix, videogames, movies, and it's still great. The picture quality is terrific, the dynamic range is nice, and it's still as silent as the day I bought it. Great TV.
Summary: Bought it to bring with us when we moved. Took it out of the box, turned it on, and the main power supply went poof. Samsung did send us our money back - after we found a service tech so he could remove some part so they'd know it was officially dead.
Summary: The speakers make a sound resembling that of a boiling tea pot in the distance. One can ignore it or compulsively go nuts unable to not hear it. At some point I may buy a value priced sound bar and turn off the native speakers of the television.
Samsung Products seem to have a 3 year or less lifespan

Summary: I am reviewing the PN50B450. Which, while it worked, worked great, I had no complaints, the picture was great, it worked great, the sound was decent, however, after the other night in the middle of watching something (and now a 3 year old set) all the sudden it turned itself off.
Summary: when I first picked up this TV it was not anything I wanted. I settled with it for the price and the size. after spending a week with this TV i realized this is a great TV and im glad I got it. the picture is really nice and everything is clear.
Pros: Great looking unit, great picture, easy to use
Cons: WHEN it works... JUST after the warranty ended, the plasma began acting really funny. When it's been on for 15 minutes or so, it begins developing SEVERE image retention/ghosting and the screen becomes VERY fuzzy. When you power it off then in again, it works fine for another few minutes! Can any...
Great image ... Couldn't be happier! LED competitor !

Summary: I know that there are many models that came after this one but still if i'm going to get a new HDTV, i would still pick this one even now! I got this Samsung Plasma PS42A466 (same as the 450 but with integrated HD tuner) back in April 2009 and i had no problem with it since then.
Summary: I paid less than a thousand for it and like many other people say, it exceeded my expectations! My local cable company has like ten HD Channels and I tell you, they look amazing in this plasma, I don't have many words to describe the beautiful picture you get from an HD source like cable or better...
