Summary: Have had this TV for almost 3 years now. Never had issues with "burn-in." The picture quality is outstanding in 720p. We mounted ours, so we don't use it on the stand. The speakers aren't phenomenal, but apparently they aren't terrible either because that's all we've been using for the last 3 years. We do experience some of that high-pitched "buzz" that other reviewers were talking about...but NEVER when you're actually watching a show.
Excerpt: Loved the TV for the first year, however now there is about a 20 second delay when turning it on and clicking noise. Not sure what is wrong with it but have other reviews and heard the same thing on this model and some of the others. Have also heard is somewhere between 200-300 to fix it. Would not recommend it due to how much it cost and to have such and expensive issue already.....
Excerpt: I've had my Samsung tv for about 3 years now and I absolutely love it. The picture is so clear and the colors are so bright. It has picture in picture. It's easily the best television I've ever owned. I went out and bought my two children, who lived at home at the time, a 13" one.
Excerpt: Purchased as a gift for the entire family last Christmas, this television has fit the bill! Because of its flat design it has added several additional square footage to the living room, and comes with multiuser functions for the whole family. My husband can play xbox and not loose his game so that I can turn on the television for our ambitious two year old. Also, a photocard can be inserted for data function.
Excerpt: This tv is great! I bought it a couple months ago, for a really great price at BJ's and the picture quality is wonderful. I hung it in my downstairs family room and it looks beautiful. It was easy to mount and to figure out the controls on it. I bought this tv after my father bought the same one. I love it!
Samsung is a very reliable brand and hasn't let me down

Excerpt: I have had my 42 inch Samsung PLasma for 3 years now and i love it. The picture is greatand you can see it from anywhere in the room. THe reason I don't give it 5 stars is because I have noticed some distoration when the picture on screen is dark lieka night scene it becomes very hard to see and sometimes there is a glare from a lamp in the house. Other then that is a great tv.
Excerpt: We went to Brandsmart looking for a CD and came out with this wonderful TV! It has great quality, the sound is very good and the picture quality is OUTSTANDING!!! I am definitely going for a second one for my bedroom!!!!
Excerpt: This HDTV is an excellent buy at just under $500. It may be 720p but it will blow most 1080p LCD tv's away! THe Colors are fantastic and there is no lag in the picture during action intense scenes as in most LCD's. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great tv for a fantastic price. I bought a second one for my other room.
Excerpt: beautiful picture and sound . very sleek looking . friends think it is a great tv. only problem is it makes a loud sound when turning on and off , so no way are you going to be quiet turning it off at night . i have had it 18 months now.
