Excerpt: I did a lot of researching and comparing different LCD and LED tvs I have had this television for 6 months. Great color and great picture. I like that it has multiple hdmi inputs for my different video games, computer, and dvd player. i was a little hesitant at first to buy plasma from all the horror stories about screen burn and short useful life. I have been nothing but impressed with this television. the problems with plasma televisions are a thing of the past.
Excerpt: The Samsung PN42B450 is a terrific 42" HD Plasma. We were in the market for a new television last summer, and with a bit of research determined that 40-42 was the right size for our room. The LCDs, while nice, were pricier. Also, this beast is pretty heavy, so don't be carting it around too much.
Excerpt: I have had my tv for a few months now and love it! Its very clear and blu ray movies look amazing! The color and the picture quality looks great. The price was really good as well. the sound is good doesn't go as loud. also sometimes the picture gets some lines in the screen but only lasts for few seconds so its not that bad. but a very good tv for the price.
Excerpt: This set doesn't cost very much, but provides excellent picture quality, especially after basic calibration with a tool like the Digital Video Essentials Blu-Ray disc. The menus and controls are well-designed and easy to use, and the set looks good (not a funky design, but understated and classy). The high refresh rate means that motion blur is practically non-existent. The black/contrast levels are fantastic, blowing away even high-end LCD TVs.
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. there is little to no motion blur and tho it is only 720p I cant complain about the quality. Im super happy!!!!
Summary: OK, the Samsung Plasma PN42B450B1D has a 2 years life span, plain and simple. I won't number the problems that I'm having with my TV but I deeply suggest you make a thorough search in the internet to check what I'm telling you before buy it. If possible buy another brand. In this digital times we're living is better to wait before buying, why?
Summary: I have had my TV for 1.5 years. However it is the second. The second one has the same exact issue as the first, just took another 18 months to burn out. Yesterday a vertical black line appeared on the screen, its visible on all inputs and the self test screen. After trying to describe my issue to the online support on the Samsung web site. I just got the normal sham, its out of warranty we are sorry.
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. The image quality is perfect and better than any LED TV in the market nowadays! Tried with 720, 1080 and the experience is the same, perfect image!
