Comments about Samsung 51" Black Plasma 1080P 3D HDTV:

This is the main/only TV in the house.

It's in a fairly bright living room, which is part of the problem with any TV, much less a plasma.

Although I do think that this screen is more reflective then our last TV (lg plasma), which is unfortunate... but something we can live with.

Everything about the TV is good. I have the TV connected into my HT setup, so its one HDMI line and one power wire to completely swap out the display. Also have a Logitech Harmony One remote, so while the Samsung remote seems easy to use, I just won't be using it.

One functional/connectivity issue has show up though. Apparently it's because of a slight signal incompatibility between Samsung tv's and some models of Yamaha receiver. I have a Yamaha rx-v671 that worked fine with my 7yr old LG plasma, but now with the Samsung there is an issue with the HDMI input "sticking" on initial power up. For some reason the HDMI signal from the TV doesn't tell the receiver quite the right info, so the receiver swaps over the AV4 as a default. It's apparently pretty common issue between Samsung/Yamaha but not something I saw in my research before purchase. The fix is simply to trigger the receiver back to the appropriate HDMI input and all is fine. I have my Logitech remote profile built to include a delay, then it sends a second HDMI trigger and everything works fine.

      This tv has a great picture and easy-to-use online features. The only "negative" is that the tv speakers/sound is somewhat inconsistent between the talking volume of characters in the show and background/sound-effect noises...and I find myself adjusting the volume back and forth sometimes. I am thinking of investing in a soundbar to resolve the issue.

      This is an amazing television. It's a lot of TV for the money, I love the built-in wifi, setup is a snap and the picture is stunning. My only complaint is the stand. It's cheaply made and wobbly. I am considering purchacing a wall mount for this, even though I really don't need one. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this for plasma lovers!!

          I decided to setup a small move/sports area in the basement. I have plasma TVs at work but was worried about the glare from windows and it's not noticeable. The dynamic picture takes a bit to get used to because the colors are so vivid. Watching sports on this TV, especially hockey is great. Almost like being at the game.

          Service and delivery comments:

          I had ABT deliver and setup TV, stand and some accessories. They called the morning of and gave an ETA. Two showed up and got everything setup withing 45 minutes. Walked through everything and asked questions as setup was going on to make sure it was the way I wanted it.

          Highly recommened setup option if you need it.
