Summary: Havent had this TV that long, but so far my family and I are LOVING it. We had the 60" Samsung Smart TV with all the bells and whistles, and although it was really nice, unless you really use all the smart features, you really don't need them not to mention that if you like to listen to movies with loud volumes, the every annoying voice guide will pop up at least twice a night when you don't want it to.
Summary: I was the only person saying they will still make plasma in 2014 and well, the world was wrong, here they are. And this 2014 Samsung plasma has BETTER COLOR than the 2013 lower-end models. (The 2013 LG and Panasonic plasmas were good but the 2011 Panasonic entry-level plasmas were subpar like the 2013 Samsungs.
Summary: After 3 days comparing LCD to Plasma we decided to go with plasma. We had a dark living room, we wanted to have a great picture for video games and action movies, it seemed plasma was the way to go. We received the new TV with the excitement of seeing our new born child for the first time, only with a 60" screen and no potty training involved. We got it set up and ready and put on Adventure Time! It was dim.
If you're obsessed with PICTURE QUALITY, look no further

Summary: Just a quick background on myself as a consumer perspective... I am a 41 year old man that has been a graphic design artist for for over 17 years. I have a love for movies and an obsession for color accuracy and picture clarity. I started the HD experience 8 years ago with a 50 inch 720p Sony LCD, which didn't last and needed expensive bulb replacements. I switched to plasma after researching which format provides the best color accuracy.
Summary: I've owned this TV for a few days and I am impressed. Let me address some things and my reasoning behind my perfect review. 1) Many people complain about glare when owning a plasma set. My thing is, if you place anything with a reflective surface in a path of light, won't there always be some sort of reflection? This is common sense to me. If you are placing a television in a room that gets a lot of light you need to be wary of it's location.
Summary: Ok, I don't write reviews... On ANYTHING. But in this instance I feel compelled. A little background for the readers... I was the previous owner of a 2011 Panasonic 55 inch VT30 (plasma) which was their top of the line picture. That TV was awesome. Super rich blacks, great color and sharpness, zero motion blur... Just an incredible picture... Until it suffered a catastrophic failure which required replacement.
Summary: I just got this Samsung model. It is simply stunning in picture and performance. Set up was so easy right out of the box. I tried all the presets and found the "movie" setting to be to my liking. I have always considered myself a good "tweaker", but I barely need to do a thing to get a beautiful picture. The only tweaks I did were to turn on the WHITE BALANCE and turn the GAMMA to +1.
Summary: I thought I had done my homework before making the decision to purchase this TV, but a couple of things have surprised me. Negatives: - Only the two HDMI and the USB ports open to the side. If you choose to mount this on the wall, which most people seem to do these days, there will be precious little room for cords should you have the need to utilize the component, optical audio, and/or antenna connectors.
