Summary: I really like this tv. I held off buying a tv for such a long time because it's a major purchase for my family. I am very satisfied with this tv. Overall, the colors are crisp and clear. It took an awful lot of tweaking to find just the right colors. The only reason this tv does not receive a 5 star rating from me is this: when there is a color fade (think of a night scene where your look at a star that is bright in the center and fades to black), I can see every fade...

Summary: Plasma cannot be beat. Period. Buy them while you can still get them. Nice television at a very good price ($549) If I did not have a 6 year old Samsung FT-5084 ($1500 at time of purchase) to compare this against I would have given it 5 stars. Use the color balance settings posted by another reviewer they are very nice. At first I was ready to send this set back until I set it up with those settings. I experience NO hum or buzzing.
Summary: I TRULY LOVE THIS TV. Wish the picture quality was a LITTLE BETTER, but when I put it on High Depth stations, it's fine. The price was AMAZING for what I got!!!! Would HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS TV!!! I live in an appartment, so it looks HUGE in my living room!! First week, I STARRED AT IT IN AWE!!!

Summary: Great display, and the sound quality is surprising for a budget tv. The preset screen settings are good enough for me. This is a great choice for the money. That being said, glare is definitely an issue with this one. If you have a window nearby with full daylight (and you are sitting at just the right angle), it will be hard to see what is on the screen through those glare spots. This doesn't appear to have any glare reduction measures. Still a great tv though.
Summary: first off let me preface by saying that not all people experience judder or are bothered by it so if you are, this TV does show it at times depending on the source. I am coming from an LCD that had motion control settings. Yes, it gives the soap opera effect but personally, I like that and for those of us that experience judder, its a great feature. sadly, this TV does not have that feature and would have to move up to the 8500 series to get it.
Summary: This is a great TV for the price. At 51" it makes little difference that it is only 720p. Colors and brightness are comparable to my higher end Samsung 59" 3D TV. Very basic features no frills but comes through where it counts!!
Pros: Energy Efficient, Fast Setup, Good Resolution, Great Picture Quality
