3 out of 5 eggs Still has image "popping" issue 06/04/2012

This review is from: Samsung 51" 1080p 600Hz Plasma HDTV PN51D550C1F

Pros: Incredible image quality (i MUCH prefer plasma to LCD "hyper real" looks).
Great value (got the "D" series for $760, right as the "E" came out).
Has 4 HDMI (most literature says it has 2 or 3).
3D effect is at least as good as theatre experience. Samsung 3D is much better than other 3d systems i've seen in stores.

Cons: Only really flaw, and why it doesn't get 5 eggs, is that the brightness/contrast tends to fluctuate randomly and jarringly. I had heard about this issue but thought it was resolved. Unfortunately, even with latest firmware, it's still happening. Would recommend splurging for E 2012 series where hopefully this is addressed.

Other Thoughts: Samsung support deserves a real black eye for this. It's all over their forums but there's never an answer from Samsung.
