Nice set, great features, lots of tweaking options. Problems with fade to black movies, random auto brightness and slight buzz

  • Summary: **Have only had the set for 4 days, still tweaking settings** The Samsung PN51E550 51-Inch 1080p 600 Hz 3D Slim Plasma HDTV (Black) I purchased this set after returning an LG LED 47 inch Cinema 3D set, the problem I had with the LG set was the sports and HD in general looked really washed out and messy; after several days of tweaking the settings nothing seemed to help. I then stopped researching LED's and jumped to researching new model Plasma's.

  • Excerpt: "...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. The tv is on a wall that isn't affected by light but we can see everything reflecting in it, its like a mirror, even on cloudy days. I don't know what the neighbours are saying, but we have to close the curtains to watch the telly. The picture is very sharp and colours ...
  • Pros: sharp picture quality
  • Cons: can't watch in daylight

  • 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. The tv is on a wall that isn't affected by light but we can see everything reflecting in it, its like a mirror, even on cloudy days. I don't know what the neighbours are saying, but we have to close the curtains to watch the telly.

Nice picture, great skype option, limited DLNA compatibility

  • Summary: Owned this TV for about 6 months as my main set. Picture quality is good and the skype functionality is excellent for chatting to relatives abroad. The DLNA server is good for streaming content direct to the set (for example 3D SBS films). However, very disappointed that the current firmware cannot decode the widely used .mkv format. I have a much cheaper LG 40 inch set, that is not even a 'smart' TV and it decodes .mkv files via DLNA perfectly.
