Pros Great picture, good size, great price (right now $677 @BB)
Cons though sound is not bad it doesn't have much depth and bass pitters out at mid volume. Mine does buzz on occasion and that is annoying when it does happen. I only notice it once every couple weeks or so and it's not constant.
Summary IMHO Best 50" display out there for the money. Viera might be good too but you cant beat the price right now.
Pros Great Picture and surprised by good quality sound.
Cons Haven't found something I don't like yet.
Summary My old LCD Projection TV lamp burnt out. I wasn't about to spend $300 on another lamp. I wasn't ready for a LED TV just yet. I compared the Plasma TV to LCD TV's at Best Buy and found that this Samsung had a much better picture. I wasn't too impressed with the speakers when I saw it but once I took it home, I was surprised on how loud it was. Watching AVATAR was awesome as well as playing Modern Warfare 2 on the PS3. Recommend if you want to spend less than $700 for a great TV.
Pros BRIGHT AND CRISP. BLACK LEVELS SUPERIOR TO ANY LCD.AT 15 FEET I HAD DO GET A 50 AND THIS ONE BLEW AWAY THE COMPETION. I LOOKED At alot of sets and this is a great one..
Cons glare may be an issue.
It would be great to have more hdmi and/ or composite imputs. this is a drag. I am pretty savvy (I have been in the tech field and am having problems with connecivity.
Summary for the mony great picture. Could be more user friendly. Don't discount the benefit of 1080 if you take high quality pics with an slr. I hooked up photos through my pc, i have a dope camera and my pics were not as clear as on my laptop.
consider glare in your room.
Pros The picture is just as rich and clean as more exspenive tv;s.
Cons remote needs to be directly pointed at tv
Summary For the money you won't find a better tv.
