Summary: Have owned Plasmas and LCD tvs. People are always concerned about plasma and their burn in or image retention. I can say this TV not only offers an amazing value for 3d, smart tv, great picture but I have not experianced any burn in and no imiage retention. I am not too worried with the smart tv because I don't use it, but from what I have used it worked just fine. The 3d is great on this tv. For the price of this tv you can not go wrong with this set.
Summary: This is one of the happiest purchases I have made. The picture quality on this tv is extremely good...to the point that you can see when someone's makeup looks too thick or whatever. The sound is very good and overall the tv looks really nice and operates to expectation. The company selling it is also wonderful. We ordered this set in early March and when it arrived the glass was completely shattered.
Summary: Hello, I bought the Samsung PN51D550 from Vanns.com through Amazon.com. Let just say that this Plasma HDTV is awesome. I use it with blu-rays, ps3 and netflix. Everything just screams quality with this unit. Vanns. delivered the unit really fast. Actually, I was scheduled for a Tuesday delivery. But, when I found out it got into town during the weekend I got it in on Monday. And even they waited for me 30 minutes to get to my house.
Summary: I have been using this TV for a couple of weeks now. I have no problems with buzzing or anything else mentioned in the other reviews. I studied these very closely before purchasing and took into account all the comments. Longterm will show whether it holds up but now it is pretty spectacular! A gorgeous picture, very sharp, very clear, great colors. Everything you would want from your TV. The setup was easy and almost nothing had been done.
Summary: I bought this T.V. initially as an upgrade for our 4 year old 42" LCD flat panel. We have a PS3 and lots of Blu-ray movies and that is why we were upgrading. I didn't care about 3D and after watching 3D movies in theaters had completely written the technology off as crappy. My wife convinced me that we should get the 3D starter kit and also got the Lion King on 3D. After watching The Lion King in 3D I became even more impressed with this already amazing T.V.
Summary: What a picture! In the last few years I have purchased several plasmas and they just keep getting better. Unlike my 4 year old 58" Samsung this TV is thin and runs cool. Just a year ago I purchased Panasonic VIERA TC-P50GT25 50-inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV, Black and I think this Samsung has a better picture. I asked a Best Buy guy and a salesman at Fry's which brand had the best 3d technology and both of them stated Samsung. I have not tried the 3d features.
Summary: I'll keep this simple: If you can find this combination of picture clarity, color fidelity/realism and size (not to mention its astounding 3D capability), then you're buying it stolen off a truck because you can't find this kind of greatness for less money on the relaxed side of the law. Look no further.
Summary: I purchased this model in May of 2011 as my first flat screen TV experience. It arrived about a week or so later and everything was going fine....until November. First, the picture went out. So I called Samsung, who promised to send a tech out since it was still under warranty. The tech asked if there was a crack in the screen, and after closely inspecting, I told her there was not. The next day the TV would not come on at all.
Summary: This is a great TV. 3D is very good quality. I haven't encountered any problems with it at all. 3D Games on PS3 look great, football and basketball look amazing in 3D. The High Def on this TV is amazing. Great quality, very sharp, colors look amazing. Overall great TV for a non expensive price.
