  • Summary: We have 1 plasma and 3 Mid range LCD's. Our plasma is the Samsung PN50B530 from last year. Ordering this we were expecting similar quality however the PQ is nothing in comparison. This is by far our worst panel at our house.
  • Pros: Price, cosmetically pleasing, slim, almost no image retention that I've noticed
  • Cons: Picture quality

  • Summary: $500 for a 42 inch Samsung Plasma (even though it's only 720p) is pretty fantastic. That being said here's a little more info after 3 days of using the tv. When the tv is on there is a very loud noticeable buzz. Luckily the tv speakers are very loud and can over-power this buzzing.

  • 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.

  • Excerpt: I got my Samsung 42 inch plasma as a birthday present. I have to say having been a long time plasma user I was worried at the price that it might short change on quality. Not so! The picture quality is superb and the set up couldn't be simpler.
  • Pros: Simple set - up and great picture quality
  • Cons: Fiddly attachment for the stand that was a little bit lacking in quality and sturdiness

  • Excerpt: Кого не смущает навязчивый гул - можно брать, я бы сейчас не взял плазму самсунг.Из-за гула - ставлю 3
  • Pros: - качество картинки ; - встроенный плеер, проигрывает практически все форматы
  • Cons: - раздражающий гул, перечеркивает все достоинства, в самсунге не признают это дефектом и пытаются доказывать, что если шум до 40дБ это норма для их телевизора ; -разрешение 1024*768 не HD
