Samsung PN42B450 vs Panasonic P42X1 Showdown
17 February 2010
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 $540 including shipping. A relative steal! I assume this had something to do with HDTV sales for the Superbowl. Whatever the reason, we snapped one up quickly.
Summary: This is an awesome TV - very clear pic with all the inputs and outputs you could ask for - can't go wrong here. Samsung is kicking tail in the HDTV market with consumer ratings through the roof !
Summary: This is my first plasma tv and I must confess it's very good for the price. After reading the reviews on it for so long I decided that i should go for it. I was caught between the LCD and Plasma, but after watching the quality of the picture from a friends plasma, I concluded that a plasma would be best and I was right. It is a great deal, great tv.
Summary: I have owned this television for about 3 weeks now; It is amazing. Don't worry about it only being 720p ... anything sized between 0"-42" raster the 720p perfectly, and 46"-63" (or above) I would recommend 1080p. Black levels are amazing, even with the dedicated chip disabled (for the break in period). I want to address a few concerns most people have: Q. Do plasmas get hot? A.
Summary: This purchase took a while to consummate. I was waiting for the right price and then it happened, just B4 Christmas of 2009. I was hit with an awesome price, just slid under 600$'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: First of all the set up was easy, painless and really quick. We had the old TV out and the new one installed in half an hour tops and I'm no whiz with electronics believe me. When I sat down to watch my new Samsung 42" Plasma TV my cat jumped in my lap as usual to join me in my recliner. I knew soon after this that I had made the right choice.
