"This has to be the best value plasma television on the market! Probably the easiest to install television I have ever purchased - a few clicks on the 'OK' button on the remote and the set was tuned in and ready to go. Even straight from the box the picture quality was superb - there is a choice of normal/movie/dynamic picture mode ('dynamic' is way too bright and over saturated for normal viewing but would be suited for viewing in bright surroundings) and you can select the picture mode by using just one button on the remote control. Similarly you can select the various picture ratio settings by a single button, negating the need to access menus. The remote itself is very simple to use and has quite large buttons for the majority of the most used functions. Sound quality is perfectly acceptable for casual viewing but like most people buying a large screen set, I have routed the sound through a dedicated AV amplifier.
My only slight annoyance (and this applies to many TV's not just Samsung's) is that when you watch a 4:3 picture (old home movie footage, old movies or programs on terrestial or satellite etc) the bars at the side of the screen are almost white. This is very distracting when viewing in a darkened room. (I realise that this can be overcome by switching picture ratio mode but that often results in a distortion of the aspect ratio.) Yet when viewing a widescreen image that leaves bars at the top and bottom (i.e a widescreen image that is shallower than the 16:9 ratio of the TV's screen) the bars are black and in a dark room, not visible at all. When I have time I will explore the TV's set up menus to see if it offers a way of selecting a black screen background when viewing a picture with side bars. Please don't let this put you off because it's only an issue on 4:3 images and is something I have seen on most widescreen TV sets.
The biggest single improvement in image quality over and above my previous LCD television, is the depth of contrast when the background scenes are dark or black. With my previous set the background to darkly lit scenes would show up as grey and wishy-washy, but with this plasma TV, blacks are most definitely black!
This is a lovely television, easy to set up and incredible value for money - buy one while they are available!

Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Inexpensive, Realistic color

"This is my first ever plasma tv, and WOW! its amazing! Being 720p i was expecting it to have pixels the size of bricks but that's not the case at all it's awsome. The clarity, contrast and colour of this plasma set beats any lcd, in fact now i have seen how good samsung plasma tv's are i will never buy an lcd tv again.
Ive got it connected to my home theatre computer and the picture is razor sharp though hdmi, the sound the tv produces is amazing, very clear audio. I was previously watching tv on a 22" lcd and i really cannot believe the difference it's incredible.
Rest assured screen burn is not an issue on samsung plasmas, the pixel shifting technology is fantastic, the tv can be updated to the latest firmware via USB its a 10 second process. I really haven't got anything bad to say about it at all.
The colour reproduction of mkv files is outstanding, it's better than a 1080p lcd tv by a large margin, everything is displayed pin sharp and theres no ghosting whatsoever. Ive seen colours on my dvd collection that ive never seen before its a real nice picture.
There is every picture setting you could think of and more in the tv's menu system and everything is set out well and easy to understand, blacks on this tv really are black unlike lcd and the whites are super white even at low contrast settings. Samsungs default picture settings don't do this tv justice, have a play in the menus to set everything to your preference.
Plasma is a very, very high quality version of CRT thats pixel perfect with outstanding clarity, my advice is buy this tv you won't regret it in fact you will thank me."
Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, Realistic color, better than lcd
Cons: no problems at all.
