Bottom Line: this is an excellent TV if you want top picture quality without paying for extra features that you don't want or need.

I've owned this TV for about a month so far and I am very happy with my purchase. I did quite a bit of research and read thru a lot of reviews, I also did comparisons between LCD/LED and plasma before making the decision to purchase this model. I went to BB and looked at the various TV's as well. For plasma TV's the salesperson at BB recommended a Panasonic over the Samsung. I didn't see any difference in the picture quality, and I checked the reliability ratings in CR and there was no appreciable difference between the two brands. That being said, I couldn't justify spending more money to get the same sized Panasonic TV.

I ended up choosing a plasma over an LCD/LED for several reasons. You get more bang for your buck with plasma, a wider viewing angle, less blur, the annual energy cost is only $21 (per the Energy Guide) which is only slightly more than an LED TV, the "burn in" issue with plasma's has basically been resolved, and I was not really that concerned with screen glare.

This is a basic TV, which is what I wanted. The picture quality is excellent and the super thin plasma makes this TV look like it is an LCD/LED TV. There are no Smart TV features, web browsers, Wi-Fi, or 3D. I live out in the country and don't have access to cable TV or internet, so most of these features would not do me any good.

The remote control is functional, but I have not really used it since I initially set up the TV. I use the Direct TV remote for regular viewing.

Some minor shortcomings: there are only 2 HDMI ports on the back of the TV. The "Smart TV's" have 3 or 4 HDMI ports - which is better, but more expensive. The sound quality is good for normal TV viewing and I have no complaints for that, however, I see that other people have complained about the sound. If you are watching a loud action movie and have the sound cranked up, the speakers are OK, not great. I am not too worried about this because if I am watching a DVD movie, I run the sound thru my stereo/surround speakers. There is screen glare, but I watch the TV 90% of the time at night, so it is really not an issue for me.

on the first day of use, our tv intermittently would shut off and we could only get it back on by unplugging it and plugging it back in. (a pain with a wall mounted tv this big) after a couple days, it ran without a hiccup for about a 2 weeks. Then it shut off during a show and we could not get it to turn back on. Called Abt and they replaced it within 3 days. This is why I bought from Abt, great customer service. No issues on first day of use with replacement TV. Picture is great.

      Well I owned this TV for almost 2 yrs. It has been awesome, I do not hear any buzzing sounds, if you do you should probably return it. The picture Quality is Dynamic, you have to know how to adjust your color settings etc. Its a plasma and does not like light. I am very Happy with my purchase!

        I have owned this t.v. for about 3 months and I'm so happy with the amazing picture quality. The colors are vibrant the blacks are the best I've seen on any flat screen. The only thing I didn't like is the brightness although I did know this going In that plasma tv's aren't lcd bright but it's bright enough during the day but at night time it's a whole different experience no pun intended it's day and night. Also I have no buzzing sound which a lot of people have complained about and don't have the pink tint on white like some people also have complained about. Overall 9/10 for the price it's a steal if you can find one

            This is the second Samsung plasma TV I've owned and they both are excellent products. The video is sharp and clear, the TV does not get hot and it's easy to configure for what you need. Since I moved I had to leave my 63" TV behind, but this one is every bit as good and we really enjoy it. The speakers leave something to be desired, but still well worth the money.

                  This TV has a great picture with vibriant colors and depp blacks as a plasma should. Everything is clear and sharp. I love the plasma because anything else just looks washed out when it comes to picture. Also nice light weight and thin design makes it easy to lift and mount by yourself. A great product. I really hate to see the Plasma TVs go.

                        I bought this television after extensively searching for a one that has a good picture. The current LCD/LED televisions on the market do not have any advantage over the plasma. I upgraded from my old tube to this one when I recently purchased a new home. I swear that sometimes the people and animals on this thing are going to walk right out into the living room. This is my first plasma television and I can't understand why they have stopped making them. I've never seen a clearer, crisp, colorful, and vibrant picture like this from any television. I should've bought one a long time ago but the tube just wouldn't die. For the price and size, you should get one before they are gone forever. You could easily pay 4 to 5 times the amount for a LCD/LED and get nowhere close to the picture this has. It's not a smart television, but you can buy a decently priced home theater system with built in smart features from Samsung and presto, you've got a way better system than all that "New Technology T.V. Junk".

                              I am less than satisfied to say the least at this point. I may have gotten a lemon but my display has vertical black lines after only 3.5 months of use. Luckily it is under warranty and Samsung is paying to have it fixed. But I am not too happy about them fixing this one and just not replacing it. The cost of parts and labor will be the same as a new unit. So I wait to see if it dies again. Before it broke: Great picture, dark blacks, great viewing angle, only 2 HDMI ports, minimal bezel, price was good. Happy with it until it died.
