I was in the hunt to replace my 8 y/o 42" plasma and had been looking for several months. This TV came out at a perfect time and had 90% of what I was looking for...which didn't include SmartTV nor 3D.This TV has an absolutely fantastic picture and is what you would expect from a Samsung plasma these days. Deep, rich blacks, and vibrant colors. Out of the box, as always, the colors are a unrealistic in some settings and need to be adjusted. I'm not sure there is a lot more to write about, after all, this is all that this TV is supposed to do - it doesn't have any other selling feature aside from the picture itself. So my advice is that if you are looking for a superb picture - look no further. This is absolutely the TV to purchase. The price itself really prices out any competition from it's competition.The features that annoyed me a bit are that there are only 2 HDMI ports...especially since the exact same SmartTV version has 3. Do not expect to be wow'd by the sound. I never expect good sound from a TV, so this was no surprise. It does fine for normal TV watching I suppose, but it certainly isn't going to impress anyone. I bought a sound bar to accompany it before I even got the TV.This was installed onto the wall with a slim-mount, and it looks fantastic. The set is very very slim, and looks extremely sleek and does NOT seem to "hover" from the wall. The bezel is thin so it makes for a very attractive look on the wall that it seems to be a part of the room. The weight, at around 60lbs I believe, makes it for a risk free install. The 42" it replaced was well over 100 lbs.I feel it's necessary to mention ABT customer service. We had noticed there was a sale on this TV (on ABT) a few weeks after it was purchased. It took a 30 second conversation and we had the price adjustment back on our credit card...amazing!

I bought a Plasma TV as my research proved that they have better picture quality than LEDs. I myself confirmed this with a couple of my friends who own a plasma and the picture was visibly better. However, Samsung is not the best when it comes to plasma technology. The picture is average at best, and there is too much reflection on the screen, further degrading the viewing expereince. Add to it the subpar sound quality, and this product does not even come close to meeting expectations. The highest volume setting was at times not audible enough.It comes with only 2 HDMI ports, which is an impediment in connecting with add on devices such as video games and streaming devices.Overall, a below average product and definitely not worth the money.

Excellent quality, picture and price.
from Houston, TX, USA
Couldn't be happier. One of the last available on the market plasmas. Superior reproduction on screen when hooked up to a blu-ray player. No motion blur or artifacts on screen. No it's not as bright as a LED, but I didn't want that. The colors on this are not garish to me, unlike most LED and LCD tv's. My only quibble is that this is basically the entry level model with almost no bell's and whistles. It would have been nicer to have another HDMI input, have the sound outputs next to the input'sâ€¦ but hey these are minor. I knew what I was paying for and I paid very little for a 60" tv that has excellent picture quality. Very happy with our purchase.
Great value for a very good TV
from Ocala, FL, USA
The performance of this TV is extremely good for the price I paid for it. Yes, you need to calibrate it to get the optimal picture but that is is quite easy to do. The only negative thing about this TV is that if you have a bright room the screen will reflect all the light right back at you. Not an issue for me but it is something to consider. Overall I'd recommend this plasma TV to anyone that wants a great picture for a super price.

My 50" Samsung DLP was playing out so I started researching TVs. I found that the Plasma TVs are the way to go. Better all around...picture, performance, value, etc. I have a Roku 3 so I didn't need a Smart TV. I also heard Plasma will be going away in the near future due to the manufacturing costs as well as supply and demand. So, I grabbed this while I could & am very pleased. So pleased that my parents and brother went out & purchased the 43" 720p version. It looks perfect. So, do yourself a favor and get this while you can! It's sad that these are going away. People don't understand quality and performance when they see it.
This Plasma is the best screen I have ever viewed
from Flat Rock, MI, USA
Hello All, I have purchased many TV's in my lifetime. I can say without a doubt this TV is by far the most clear, exact color, refresh rate on and on and on I have ever viewed. Even when we hooked it up at home with a HDMI cable, it looked better than it did in the store, and that's hard to do. I really am sad that these Plasma's are going away but dollar for dollar it is a much better investment than any LED's that are out there now. We purchase a 55" LED from another manufacturer and had to return it because it was advertised at 120Hz and it was on 60hz...fast moving action films were very hard to watch, so I brought it back the day after Xmas and got a refund. I started looking at these Plasma's mainly because of the great price and did a lot of investigating online and man am I glad we purchased this. The picture is fantastic! Did I say that already! The color saturation, the blacks and whites are breathtaking...believe me if you buy this TV you will thank me 1000 times over....what a great price and a great TV. I hope Samsung keeps these Plasmas going for a while..........
