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.

About Me Power User
This tv is excellent for someone who wants an amazing quality tv, but doesn't need all the extras like 3D,smart tv, etc. I didn't need any of that since I have an xbox one that has all of those features, and this tv paired up with my xbox one is amazing, I use it for gaming, tv and movies and it's by far the best tv I have ever owned.
Service and delivery comments:
Abt service is excellent, since I have an abt card, buying this tv was as easy as a phone call. All I did was call, tell them which tv I wanted and the purchase was complete within a few minutes. The option of financing the tv for a year was perfect and made the purchase even easier. Abt always treats you like family when you call them, they truly provide excellent customer service and treat every customer like a VIP. A few weeks after I bought my tv I noticed the price went down, so I called and abt credited my account for the difference. Great service from Abt!
Excellent Picture and Low Cost
from Lakeland, FL
I wanted a "dumb tv" as I have a HTPC to get all of the internet programming I want. All I needed was a good display device. I am also an antenna or OTA HD user and find the set's tuner to do a good job as I am able to get the local stations about 20 miles away (PBS; ABC; CBS; NBC; FOX; CW; ION)
The shipping took longer than I was expecting but the TV arrived in good condition with no damage to the packaging or to the TV. They delivered it to my street level garage. I unboxed and set it up with an assist from my wife.
