"Beats my Sony 46" Z4100 lcd with 120 hz at 1/2 price."4.5 starson by mewex
Pros: Great value. Don't miss 1080p. Can't discern extra resolution. Glare not bothersome at all, in fact lends to depth, vibrancy of picture. Blacks are deeper on Panasonic plasmas, but this one perfectly acceptable once in home and not side by side.
Cons: Nagging possibility of burn - in, even though hasn't happened at all in the 1 month owned.
Summary: I researched 4 years before deciding. Bottom line is this set beats the best plasmas of just 2 or 3 years ago for a fraction of the cost. For me, $825 plus tax was too enticing. Viewing at any angle is perfect. The next Samsung plasma up the rung is the pn550 and for $400 more, can't justify the little upgrade in picture. I also considered the Panasonic x1 'cause blacks are deeper, but cnet says it has bad pc monitor and standard def. performance. No review for Samsung, but based on all other Samsungs' reviews, those areas shine. And first hand, I confirm.
