Summary: I bought this TV about a year and some months ago and I love this thing. Bought a 2 year warranty from a third party with it since it was so damn cheap. Hook this thing up to a surround sound system and our good to go. Got it for the INSANE price on sale from Amazon for like 500$! Originally I bought it for 600$ through Amazon but it had dropped 100$ after I bought it and the freaking amazing people at amazon gave me a 100$!
Summary: If you are looking for a plasma on a budget look no further. The only reason for the 4 on performance is because of the glare. I bought some blackout curtains and all is well now. Picture is better than any lcd I've ever owned.
Summary: Got this for my father and it is very nice. Guests just commented last week of the picture quality and I must agree, as good as I have seen. We got the home delivery and set up and that made it nice for my disabled father.
Summary: We bought this tv in dec 2011 and loved it...until last week when tv stopped working and made strange clicking noises. When i googled the problem, i was very unhappy to find that samsung had a recall (after a class action suit) for their 2008 and earlier models for the same issue but are denying responsibility for tvs bought after 2008. A quick internet search turned up a lot of very upset and unhappy customers with the same problem in the post 2008 plasma tvs.
Summary: I purchased this TV at best buy for 699 which is a great price for a TV that looks this good. There are two things that made me return it in the end though that you should consider. First, I had it in a room with lots of windows and white walls which you can't do. This TV reflects all ambient light and dark blacks are worthless if you can see your reflection in them. I avoided watching it during the day and all lights had to be out to watch it at night.
Summary: Let me start by saying that I'm running this HDTV with a PS3 Slim (for BluRay, gaming and HD video content) and a Sony STR-DG 820 7.1 surround sound setup. Pros: Rich Blacks Fantastic color reproduction on many films I tested* wealth of options in the menu system 600hz as opposed to 60/120/240 with LCD or LED sets great price for the size and quality.
Summary: The is a great TV for the $$$. It is not a smart TV with apps but why do I need that I have a roku, iTV and Blu-ray with apps. It also doesn't have many HDMI interfaces - I don't need that because it is connected to a receiver with HDMI switching. What is does have is a GREAT picture at a great price. This is my first plasma TV and I have to say it does have a better image then my other Samsung LCD TV - that I really like too BTW.
51" Samsung Plasma TV is very satisfactory but has no RCA audio jacks

Summary: This Samsung 51" plasma has replaced a five year old Samsung 46" LCD which has been moved for use in another room. I was unprepared for the improvement in image clarity over the LCD set, but it is undeniable. It required some tinkering with the settings to get the ideal picture for me. The screen is very reflective, as I expected, but the light in this room is controlled and I watch movies in total darkness at night.
