It also has an ultra-high contrast ratio for deeper blacks, brighter whites and great color in between. The 18-bit color processing delivers more true to life colors. The FilterBright anti glare filter keeps your image bright and clear even when watching during the day or under fluorescent lights.

Completing the viewing experience is the 15W per channel audio system with SRS TruSurround XT processing. The two speaker system includes SRS Dialog Circuitry, WOW and TruBass technologies to deliver a theater experience in your living room. The bottom mounted speakers make it easier to fit the TV into your current home entertainment center.

5 out of 5 eggsSweetness

Pros: Awesome plasma set -- easy break-in and calibration with a DVE/ISF disc. Looks amazing from 8-10 ft. Second-to-none viewing angles + the added bonus of the swivel stand. Samsung nailed this one on its first 1080p plasma set.

Cons: This set is now about 2 gens old -- seems like a high price for such an old model (have seen it on Newegg for as low as $1699, but got mine at Circuit City for $1399).
Speakers are carp, but that holds true for 99% of flat panels, so no fault there.

Other Thoughts: You will love this TV, no doubt.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The picture on this TV is absolutely amazing! I bought this TV to replace my 50” Hitachi rear projection LCD. Initially, I was a bit nervous about buying such a high dollar item online, but I said the heck with it. Since I’ve purchased many items from Newegg before, I was comfortable and felt I was covered. My initial reaction after hooking it up was mediocre. I have Cox Cable and was using the component inputs/outputs. Well, after a few days, I decided to buy an HDMI cable and let me tell you, BIG DIFFERENCE. The picture is breathtaking! I first turned on a digital HBO channel, and I noticed a big difference. When I turned to the HD HBO, forgettaboutit! If you give this TV the best input, the output will be amazing! For the price, this TV is well worth it. On top of that, there are 3 HDMI connections (2 back 1 side), along with a computer input. I also found that the on-screen menu is very easy to navigate.

Cons: I've been sitting here for over an hour and after 2 beers, I still can't think of anything. Over the next few months, if I do run into any problems or issues, I'll be sure to revisit this column, but.

Other Thoughts: I would consider myself a 6 out of 10 with regards to being a video/audiophobe. I just want to see a good picture that sounds great for the money I spent and have enough connections for my equipment. Some of the past reviews mentioned things such as noise, heat, crackling, etc. I have one thing to say....nitpickers. If you want a darn good picture, sufficient hook-up options and a beautiful sleek looking TV at a good price, this is it! Additionally, the built-in sound system on the TV is fine for the time being. I will eventually buy a surround system (from Newegg) and hook it up, but there is a noticeable difference in sound quality with the HDMI hook-up. So, when you buy this TV, make sure you include the $7.99 HDMI cable.

5 out of 5 eggsNow THIS is HD

Pros: I bought this to replace my 46" Sony LCD and wow, what a difference! The design of the TV is phenomenal on its own, and is only exceeded by the amazing picture it produces. I thought I had the best picture with it, then realized I was only at 720p. A quick trip to Best Buy for an HDMI cable and wow, what a difference!

I read all of the reviews here first, and must say, everyone is right in praising this TV!

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat TV

Pros: The TV is great. Everything about is just what I wanted and more. The picture is clean and clear with DVD, BluRay, and plane TV. The price was nice too.

Newegg as always was good, we just moved so we had a new address, we had to call fix the problem, but they got it shipped out quickly and Free. AIT brought the TV right into the living for us. Thank you

Cons: Well some of the cons are true, I guess. It does get hot, but just don't stand right behind it. Turn on the air-conditioning, it will be fine.

It also makes the humming noise, but if you are watching something you can't hear it. So as long as you are not watching a silent film, you should be fine with it.

Other Thoughts: Thanks again Newegg, for another great deal and fast service.

5 out of 5 eggs4 Month Update Review

Pros: After about 4 months of ownership, I thought I'd give an update review. I'm so pleased that I've recommended this set to my friends and several have bought it, all are as pleased as I am. That's hard to do as I'm sure most know. The colors are drop dead gorgeous and accurate, detail level is fantastic even in dark scenes. The PS3 is connected via HDMI and not only gives superb gaming, it is a fantastic upconverting DVD player through HDMI. No ghosting, no judder, no blackouts or electronic hiccups from the TV of any kind. I have both over the air antenna and Dish Network (will switch to DirecTV once they get a better receiver), all the HD channels looks fantastic.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Some people have mentioned a crackling noise from the sets. I had it too and was worried until I figured out what it was, it's the PLASTIC trim surrounding the set HEATING up after it is turned on (this plasma TV radiates a bit of heat), the noise was intermittent until the entire set had fully warmed up. The GOOD NEWS is that is has gone away after about three months. I guess it finally "expanded" to its full limit. Now no more crackling plastic for the last month.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet TV!

Pros: Aside from technical explanations, the sleek design and gloss black makes for a very sharp looking tv. The swivel design on the stand that it comes with is also pretty convenient for viewing from kitchen and different places in the house. Not that the 50" isn't sufficient enough! ;o) The buttons located on the bottom front right corner are a very sweet touch as well and you can hardly notice them. Also worth mentioning is the large amount of inputs on the back of the tv! And then another full set is located on the side of the tv for great convenience. I've had my tv for about a week now and really like it. Worth the purchase and newegg's price blew all other competitors I researched out of the water. Great customer service, and extremely fast delivery; within two-three business days. Very happy with tv as picture quality is outstanding and the colors are deep. Note also that there is setting on tv for "Movie" which drops color contrast down, and looks better than mfg setting.

Cons: Unfortunately, when I received this product the first time, the entire glass screen was cracked from left to right. Big disappointment when opening the box that looked fine from the outside. But newegg handled my RMA pretty quick and I had the new tv within 10 days without having to wait for the damaged tv to be picked up first. The longest process was waiting for the claim to be completely filed and processed. Once that was done, I received the tv again within 2 business days. Thanks newegg for having top notch customer service, and I will be doing more business with newegg in the future. Note that you have to go through AIT worldwide's website though to track order. It is not linked directly from the tracking number provided online. Newegg's customer service rep was able to help me with that and I tracked the status of the delivery often as they updated very quickly.

Other Thoughts: First time purchaser from newegg and very happy overall with my purchase. I have recommended newegg and this exact tv to many friends and will purchase from newegg in the future. I also bought the Samsung Blu-Ray device at the same time from newegg and everyone that's been over has commented on the viewing quality of the blu-ray films; especially the animated ones. A plus about buying samsung blu-ray player is that the tv remote will work together with the blu-ray player automatically without having to enter in any code or anything. Nice convenience to consider.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Display!

Pros: After seeing the specs and the price, I couldn't say no to this. Intially I was a little hesitant after reading some of the reviews. I would have to agree that any complaints against this screen would be complete nitpicking. The quality is amazing. I didn't have any problems ordering from Newegg. I received it within 3 business days. Everything arrived fine. The Delivery guy from AIT was more than helpful.

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: I should have went for this display months ago!

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for your buck!!

Pros: I can't say enough here. The clarity is O M G W T F - awesome! The color depth is great! Blacks show very well/accurately - MUCH better than any LCD I've ever seen. PS3 looks flawless. Blu-Ray movies - nothing less than superb. For using it as a computer monitor, I would give it AT LEAST a 9 out of 10. It would be nice to have a higher refresh rate for the desktop/web surfing but my PC games look PERFECT! (CS:S, Hellgate:London, WoW, COD4, C&C3, Crysis) For this price and all of the other TONS AND TONS of features, I really couldn't be happier. I suppose I could have spent thirty-five hundred dollars on that new Sony LCD with 120Hz refresh, but the extra cost far outweighs the quality/performance improvements I would get (not to mention losing such rich/deep blacks by going to LCD - PLASMA RULES!). GET THIS TV! @.@

Cons: After 3 days, I noticed a dead pixel... because I was purposely searching the screen for them with my face about 3 1/2 inches away from it. Yep, one whole dead pixel - hardly worth mentioning. To be honest, I never would have seen it during regular use and even though I know it's there, I still can't see it from a normal distance no matter what I'm doing with it - movies, ps3, pc, etc. Can't see it.

Other Thoughts: I bought this product from some other company, not NewEgg. They offered a lower price, better shipping price, and a more affordable extended 3 yr. full coverage warranty plan. Though, NewEgg was next on my list. ;)

I am also wary of pixel burn. I have turned on every pixel burn protection feature to max, and put energy saver on max. It has toned down the brightness only a little bit for the time being. But not enough to complain about. Even with all of this protection in place (at max), I haven't had a single person ask me "Why is it so dim?" or "Can you make it brighter?". That's just GREAT!

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic TV...

Pros: Absolutely amazing picture, plenty of inputs, unbelievable price. I'm amazed that the plasma screens now have the same life expectancy as LCD's do, 60,000 hours. If you do the math, that's about 27 years at 6 hours a day, and even then the screen is supposed to only be at half brightness. The war between LCD and plasma is over in my eyes. Plasma is going home with the trophy for picture quality...

Cons: The TV generates a lot of heat but all plasmas do so it was to be expected. I wish there was a way to program the picture size better. Even though it remembers the setting there are so many different input sizes that it seems like I'm constantly zooming in and out to make the picture fit the screen. Seeing as how it is a plasma set and susceptible to IR and burn in, I'm a little gun shy about watching anything but a full screen pic. Everything I've read says that burn in is no where near as likely to happen as it was in the past though, so I think once I get used to the set I'll lighten up a little on this.

Other Thoughts: I read a lot of mixed reviews about this set before I bought it. After having it for just over a week though I can honestly say that most of the bad stuff I've read is complete nit-picking. This is an awesome set and I can't believe how much I saved by buying it from Newegg over a local store. I was worried about shipping and damages, and the delivery guy said they do get a bunch of damaged ones that they send back, but mine was perfect. You roll the dice I guess, but at least for once I can say the luck of the dice was with me. I got a good one and I can't say enough about it.
