Great Value for the Price

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.
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: 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 $540 including shipping. A relative steal! I assume this had something to do with HDTV sales for the Superbowl. Whatever the reason, we snapped one up quickly.
Summary: This is an awesome TV - very clear pic with all the inputs and outputs you could ask for - can't go wrong here. Samsung is kicking tail in the HDTV market with consumer ratings through the roof !
Summary: This is my first plasma tv and I must confess it's very good for the price. After reading the reviews on it for so long I decided that i should go for it. I was caught between the LCD and Plasma, but after watching the quality of the picture from a friends plasma, I concluded that a plasma would be best and I was right. It is a great deal, great tv.
Summary: This purchase took a while to consummate. I was waiting for the right price and then it happened, just B4 Christmas of 2009. I was hit with an awesome price, just slid under 600$'s with free shipping and the guys who came to set it up were friendly, eager, and outstanding in their customer service persuasion. It is a beautiful piece of electronics and I would/will/do recommend it to whoever I come in contact with and start to talk about the differences of Plasma vs. LCD.
Summary: I highly recommend this television. I love a good action movie, and they look stellar on this thing. The reasons I got this product are: the good reviews, the picture quality, the cost, and finally I've owned Samsung products before and all of mine seem to last. Did my homework before purchasing this television. The size of our room verses the resolution and television size indicated this was the perfect television for us.
Summary: Boy does this deliver on picture quality. Plasma is definitely the way to go, especially if you have chairs situated to the side of your picture. In well lit rooms there is always going to be some degree of glare but nothing you can't overcome. Researched this as a Christmas present for the in-laws. When I say researched, I mean hours upon hours of digging and checking and digging some more. This was definitely the best bang for the buck I could find.
Summary: My wife and I have been very pleased with this TV from Samsung. This is our first big screen HD TV. We have owned it for 5 months. It is in our living room hooked up to a Samsung 5.1 surround sound DVD player with 1080p upconversion. And I have to say, even though this TV is "only" 720p, the picture looks as good as or better than most other 1080p TVs. I don't know if that is because it is a plasma or just Samsung quality coming through.
