Barely usable

Nic3k, Amazon

  • Summary: Awful software. For a long time Samsung didn't support Amazon Instant Video at all; now they claim to, but it suddenly stopped working on this one. I tried all kinds of "updates" at multiple levels, no help.

Irritating buzzing sound

Markit54, Amazon

  • Summary: I had heard about plasmas and their buzzing issues, but since my previous plasma (Panasonic) made no noticeable noise at viewing distance, I went ahead and purchased this Samsung. First impressions were positive.

Did half the job only, sent it back

  • Summary: The plasma picture was superb, very natural, but when on 3D with the active glasses (which is what we bought it for) it was unwatchable. The image was way too dark and could not be adjusted better, and my wife and I both suffered headaches from the glasses. Had to return it.

the samsung PS51E550 has a brilliant picture quality

  • Excerpt: My husband always wanted a large flat screen tv on the wall so we got the Samsung 51" plasma screen. The quality of the picture is excellent but, having had lcd screens in the past, we didn't realise how much light affected the screen.
  • Pros: sharp picture quality
  • Cons: can't watch in daylight

Poor black levels, otherwise ok.

J. Robinson, Amazon
5 October 2012
  • Summary: I found this panel to be very average, whilst it had nice colours and very good motion, the balck levels were very poor. Black areas were noticeably grey even in a completely dark room. It didn't come close to a two year old Series6 LCD to be honest.
