Summary: After 2 years and 1 month the picture went completely black and won't come back up. Tv still has sound. You can no longer buy this model, and I guess for good reason. But I also wonder how long the other Samsung plasma televisions will play without having a major issue such as mine!
Samsung 51" Plasma blows panel after 2 years! Worthless..

Summary: Beware of this product. After just 2 years my 51 inch Samsung Plasma HDTV blew a panel resulting in a black horizontal line splitting the screen. Researching this online I find that the problem is common with Samsung plasma products. Unfortunately, I am outside the limited warranty and Samsung could not have been less helpful. The replacement cost exceeds by far buying a brand new one! I loved the TV until this happened.
Summary: So I just setup my Samsung tv last night and it doesn't work. No video, it will power on and I can hear audio but nothing but black screen. The Samsung online troubleshooter is useless but the tv is in parts and labor warranty so they will be sending a tech out to fix it free of charge. The tv came in perfect condition so Samsung must have cheaped out on some part's. This will definitely have a negative impact on any future purchase of Samsung tv's.
Summary: Pros: 1) ordered from Amazon so I get hassle free return, just waiting for them to come get it 2) Sound is good as on my older plasma, better than the sound on my Samsung LCD Cons: 1) Horrible picture quality! All these reviews saying you have to tweak it or turn off energy saver does not change the actual clarity or quality of this tv. 2) Even though I do not have HD it should still give you a decent picture. I should have the option of watching it with or without HD.
Summary: I expected more out of this tv. I received it with a buzzing noise and a static picture. I do not feel like dealing with the return process since I had already tossed the box. Do some more research before buying this.
Summary: I just bought this tv and I turned it on and WOW this tv is bad. My tv room is pretty normal as it just has two windows and two lamps. However, this tv generates a ton of glare on it from the lights and ANY sunlight. The tv is not in a particularly sunny room either. This TV also has a very dark picture to it. Another issue is this TV is a mirror. When u turn it on u can see yourself in the tv. Despite all this the biggest issue with this tv is the glare.
Summary: Advertised as having a analog audio output but it only has an optical audio output so be aware that you will need an adaptor. UPDATE: After only 6 months the plasma screen cracked. Samsung refuses to repair saying it was "physical damage". Yes, physical damage caused by thermal expansion of the screen. It is a well known problem, I now have a $700 paper weight. Do yourself a favor and Google Samsung cracked plasma screen.
