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.
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: 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...
Summary: We've only had this tv for 3 days and we're already in love! Watched an old movie on PBS last night and the picture was just stunning! Haven't tried 3D yet at all. We were going to buy the 450 but the 490 showed up for $50 more so we opted for the 3D model to keep our options open for the future. Will need to upgrade to a blue-ray player and get the glasses before we can do that.
Summary: The resolution is great when connected to a source of 720P. The 3D is not that good I do not know why..the 3Dexperience I had on other 3D TVs in the store were much better. The Tv works great when connected to any game console, PC, or Bluray.
Summary: Everything the other reviewers praised about this tv is true to me, I will come back and update my review with more content but thought my experiment with the Media Play function of the tv would be useful for potential buyers of the 2010 boxing day season in Canada (yes in Canada, mine was purchased boxing day from best buy canada).
Summary: This Plasma TV has a breathtaking picture and when on energy save mode only draws 80-130 watts. I've had the set for over a year now with no complaints. I can see this thing so easily the way I have it set up. It's a pure delight and my favorite television in the house. It works great for gaming too and the 3d looks fantastic ! I haven't done an energy comparison yet for 3d but when I do I'll post it.
Summary: for the retard that said it is not 720p has to be the biggist idiot because 1024x720p is 720p and this t.v. has a resolution of 1366x768p witch is slightly higher resolution than regular 720p with is still 720p and will have a slightly better picture when watching a blueray compared to a regular 720p tv but for h.d.t.v. cable or satellite viewing this tv will look just as good as a 1080p tv would because H.D.
