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.
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.
Summary: Okay I've been doing some research and reading all the reviews. Firstly, I've owned Samsung HTV's before and have always been happy with their equipment. During my review of a bedroom replacement HDTV I came across the Samsung PN42B450. Since I recently removed all my cable boxes in the house except for the HDTV/DVR (Comcast Georgia) I needed a HDTV with a built-in tuner to scan Comcast signals using IRC.
Summary: Our previous TV was a decent 32-inch LCD with an excellent picture. After three years, I came to realize that a 32-inch size is not optimum for viewing from 8-10 feet away in our living room. So I set off on researching a larger HDTV option. I determined that a 40-42 inch size would fit our space perfectly and be well-suited to our viewing distance. Based on my good experience with the 32-inch LCD, I started looking at 40-inch LCDs only.
Summary: Ordered TV on Monday at 11:00 PM had TV in hand and set up Thursday 4:00 PM. First off CEVA shipping on this item Free "White Glove Service" was awesome. They even put batteries in remote while unpacking set and lifted set 5 feet to put into cubby above fireplace, Incredible service and well worth the few bucks I gave them when they left. The TV is awesome. Got it the night the Winter Olympics were starting so was excited to see how tv worked.
Summary: As students living on a budget, finding a decent TV with HD capabilities between 37"-42" for our living room for under $700 was going to be a challenge. After checking up on the major electronics retailers websites regularly for several months, this television popped up on Amazon for a mere $540 including shipping. A relative steal! I assume this had something to do with HDTV sales for the Superbowl. Whatever the reason, we snapped one up quickly.
Summary: This is an awesome TV - very clear pic with all the inputs and outputs you could ask for - can't go wrong here. Samsung is kicking tail in the HDTV market with consumer ratings through the roof !
