Summary: First of all let me say that all the positive reviews are correct! I purchased this same TV from Crutchfield's "Scratch and Dent" Dept for $639.00 with free shipping and no tax here in NY. I was not in the market for a TV but when I saw the value for a 3D TV, I could not pass it up. When I first turned on the TV I was amazed by the picture quality. Immediately this plasma blew away the picture quality from my year old 42" LG LCD which i paid more for.
Summary: This 3D tv is great I had it for 5 months already... I have a 3d samsung blu ray player BD-c6900 1080p series.. and the 3d looks absolutely stunning. Blu rays look awesome as well. The only complain I have is that when viewing a dvd that is 4:3 it looks horrible you get black lines on the side of the tv. However this can easily be fix.
Great Television for the Price... Will blow you away!

Summary: This is my Review for the Samsung PN50C490 50-Inch 720p Plasma 3D HDTV. After purchasing this television I was a bit skeptical about getting a large ticket item from Amazon. All my worries were soon put to rest, I ordered this product on Sunday April 24, 2011 and it was in my house by the 28th. I was a little worried about the delivery process being that I had read mixed reviews on CEVA the freight shipper selected to deliver the television.
Summary: I have had this 3DTV for a couple of months and I will say I love it.. The 720P looks at least as good as the 1020P . Blu-rays look crisp and clear with great color. I think the color in a plasma TV is the best over LCD and LED tvs. Its real color. The 3D aspect of this TV is stunning with objects popping out almost to your face. That depends on the content you are viewing though. I watched Shrek Forever and a few others and they were fantastic 3D effects.
Summary: I purchased this tv to REPLACE the exact brand & model that my Son bought in December. The December TV was 'broken' - we thought by his 3 yr old son. The screen had a hit in it and we just presumed it was done by his son although no one saw him do it. As a housewarming gift, I replaced the TV (almost $800). Less than 2 weeks later - the same 'hit' was noticed on the TV. Only this time his son had not been allowed in the TV room (the door was closed and fastened).
Summary: The delivery system for my TV was absolute CRAP! My TV was delivered in the back of a pick up truck by a very rude man, who was no help at all. He had my husband and little brother move the TV into my house (after he called me -at work- before he would let my HUSBAND sign for it.). He didn't try to help bring it into the house or anything, and then tried to take off before they checked the screen.
Summary: I am a research nut so it took me 2 months to finally come to a decision and I decided on this set based on overall price and best bang for my buck. For $799 (at Sears) the set came with two 3D glasses (Samsung SSG-2100AB), which are currently valued at around $150 each. I had $1500 in my budget for a new set and I am glad I waited. Sears had this TV on display with the entire package attached (3D blu-ray, surround sound, etc).
Summary: Greetings, please dont make the mistake of dismissing this tv as a simple 720p plasma as I did. I recently purchased a 46 inch Sony Bravia 120hz LED LCD I thought it was great. I was in the market for a larger LED 55 to 60 inch for the living room. I went to best buy and reviewed side by side with a 55 samsung led and a sony 60 led. I adjusted the settings on all three and tuned them down equally, the sales guy didnt like this but I did it anyway.
Summary: The TV is great, it gives you a great 2D picture and an awesome 3D picture. You can convert 3D to 2D and 2D to 3D. Although it says it is 720p,while I play games or when I looked at avatar on blu-ray it displayed in 1080p. I find it weird and thought it was an error but it isn't it actually displays in 1080p.
Summary: I was really skeptical about buying a 3dtv that is this cheap,but it proved me wrong big time.I went to HHGREGG pick this tv up for $600.00 bucks. But first I had the guy display a 3d movie on it and it worked flawlessly. Took it home ,setup is very easy.I had my ps3 so I didn't need to buy 3d blu ray player .Remember,to get the best quality video signal you need a HDMI cable dont ( don't buy in store ,i got a rocketfish hdmi cable right here at amazon for dirt cheap and...
