Best bang for your buck hands down...

First, this tv wasn't a gift and I'm in no way receiving compensation for sharing my opinion... although if after reading, you feel compelled to contribute... Lol but seriously now.

The pros: Incredible picture (easily comparable to tvs 3x the price and waaaay better than any LED piece of overpriced garbage), surprisingly impressive 3d, easily integrated into my moderately intricate home network, free glasses x2.

The cons: As indicated by nearly every review of this product I've read (professional or consumer), this tv does require a room where the amount of light can be controlled, as there can be a glare produced from the surface of the glass. And the only other con is the 10w x2 speakers. They're pitiful but if you purchase a tv of this calibre, you are certainly looking to add a sound bar, home theatre (pc or otherwise). If not, I strongly consider you start looking at aftermarket sounds.

Conclusion: If you want the absolute best tv for the money, this țv is for you. I am a gamer and playing games in full hd is just unbelievably amazing. I see things I never before noticed. Bluray, same result: flawless image quality. Hd digital cable? Yep, amazing. It even makes standard def channels look good. Now I personally had allowed myself a b for a new tv and home theater for my den or "man cave". I would make this purchase again 100/100 times - SO HAPPY and ZERO buyer's remorse. Even if you've got extra bucks to spend, consider this tv. For considerably more you can get the 6500, 7000, or 8000 series, respectively, which do have a bit better glare reduction and a dual core processor which only matters when you're using smart features (overrated Imo).

I would like to add that this is my first purchase through abt.com and I can say confidently that after my absolutely flawless experience with their staff, and the prompt delivery (5 freaking days later it was at my door and the shipping was free!!), they will get first shot at any future business of mine. Sales and customer service were knowledgeable and friendly- a breath of fresh air in today's market.

            Comments about Samsung 51" Series 5 Plasma Black Flat Panel 3D HDTV:

            I was researching TVs for about 3 months, and when I saw this one, I decided it was time to purchase. The buying process could not have been easier. All the information that I would have needed was provided on the site. The only change that I would have liked would have been a picture of the Coaxial/HDMI/USB portion of the TV. I put Glare as a con, since I have the TV in a room that has plenty of natural light. I knew about this prior to purchasing the TV (and it does not effect my viewing), but I felt I would not be giving an honest review if I did not mention this. Overall, the searching and buying process was outstanding. I will definitly come back to the Abt site to buy my next TV.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The TV was delivered earlier than I was quoted at purchase. Received notifications from the time it was processed through the date of delivery. The driver that delivered the TV was very professional. He allowed me time to inspect the outside package, assisted with removing the TV from the package, and waited until I had it connected (to ensure that the TV turned on and was not visibly damaged). Overall, delivery process was well done.

            This product was deliverd quickly without much hassle, the delivery company was a little rude when discussing shipping options but overall it was deliverd to my house without much problem. The TV is AMAZING, the only negative is that my cable company doesn't offer true 1080P so I can't quite see the perfect quality unless I'm watching a movie.
