I bought this for the bedroom because I can totally black it out. So far this has been an excellent choice. I decided to go with dumb Plasma 720 over a Smart 1080 LED. Saved a bundle and paired it with a nice Blu-Ray player with tons of apps. Picture quality is great and sound was a pleasant surprise. You have to change the sound settings out of the box, and then you are ready to roll. I ordered a surround sound to go with this but am contemplating sending that back.

Salesman will always tell you to go with 1080 LED, LCD or even 3D for Blu-Ray. A couple of comments on that. LCD and LED LCD do not have the glare issues that Plasma has and that is no different here. After that, Plasma has far truer color accuracy and much better blacks. The refresh rate is far superior on Plasmas. Also, when comparing a 720 to a 1080, most people cannot distinguish between the two after 10-12 feet. With a 51" you need to be at that distance to enjoy it. If you want 3D consider this. Content is extremely limited to mostly kids movies and bad adult ones. Blockbuster, Redbox and Netflix offer NO 3D Blu-Ray rentals as of today. VUDU is the only online vendor that streams 3D and that will break your bank.

I'm not being critical of LCD's here. I own a wonderful LG 3D smart TV and I love it. If your looking for a good TV without emptying out your wallet consider a 720 plasma. No bells and whistles, but do you really need Netflix or Youtube on 10 devices in your house?

Overall does what a TV should do very well and very large. Easy to setup, great picture and sound. Only con to this product is very limited connectivity. Only has two HDMI on the rear and 1 optical digital audio output. You will not be able to use HDMI pass through on this television. No ARC on the HDMI.

Just make sure you have a dark area and you will enjoy. 5 stars for just being a good tv.

I spent a lot of time comparing LCD, LED and Plasma and decided on the Plasma. They've done a good job overcoming some of their previous problems. I'm so glad I made this choice.

This is the "E", 2012 version of the "D" from 2011, which has gotten very good reviews.

The picture is crisp, colors are vibrant, black is so BLACK! The on-screen set up is easy, the menu system is simple and just about anyone can figure it out without much help from the directions. The commands are logical and the options for sound and picture dynamics work well for HD, digital or standard cable incoming signals, which is great since we get all three in our area. Don't be dissuaded by the 720p; it give great picture quality. We had a 1080p and at this size (51") we see no difference, it's a non-issue. Several people have said that in on-line reviews and they are right, I'm glad we listened to them.

The only minor issue is the shiny screen; if a lamp is on in the room you may see it reflected in the screen. But we watch TV with the lights off so it's not a problem at all.

The weight is less than 50 lb. making it easy to set up. It comes with a plastic stand that seems flimsy as you put it together but it's not, and it's perfectly capable of holding the television securely and looks great once assembled with a Phillips head screwdriver and the 8 screws that come with it.

This Samsung 43" plasma features some good basic features while performing very adequately in terms of picture and sound quality. All around it is a top choice for the person who wants a very affordable plasma television with the essential features, but may not do so well for the person who desires a much deeper level of choice in terms of connection options and has a bit more money to spend.

The positives for this plasma tv are that well, it's a plasma. These days LCD and LED flat panels have mostly overtaken the tv market, promising a brighter and smoother picture through their diode lighting and all the benefits of your quality plasma television. Though most of their claims are true, the simple fact is that the hardware of a plasma tv will always trump that of either an LCD or an LED. The blacks are MUCH truer and deeper on plasmas than anywhere else, and even in a decently well-lit room, a plasma can still perform well, so forget lots of that jargon saying that if you have a room with ANY sort of light coming in that a plasma will look absolutely horrid. Simply not true and very overaly exaggerated. Yes, while an LED and LCD would look somewhat brighter, this plasma in particular does have a significantly bright screen that would do well in a room with 1 or 2 windows letting light inside. Another reason the plasma hardware works better is that unlike many LED's, the picture frame rate is the truest standard for movies. Many LED implement a frame rate smoothing that even if turned off, still leaves a little bit of an ungenuine "soap opera" look to your favorite movies and tv shows. It's just the way the hardware is, no way around it; meanwhile, LCD's being the most affordable, have perhaps the worst of all black levels, and colors that can tend to appear too stale.

I love this TV it worth every penny, it has a beautiful picture, the sound is amazing(no sound bar needed trust me), amazing color! After I purchaced the set I went down to hhgreg and compared the 1080p version to the 720p version an honestly I could hardly tell the difference! The difference was that a football game was on and the small bar at the bottom that showed the team and the score was slightly car crisper on 1080p, but I need to ask is it worth a hundred more dollars?

My wife and I generally use this for watching our roku box 720p, it looks amazing! All and all we love this TV, we were stuck between this and a scepter 50", but we have long loved Samsung tv's and got it for an amazing price so it was a no brainer! The picture has no blur, and none if that soap opera effect I hate. It has no frills its just a plain TV, I feel 3D, internet, smart TV blah blah feels gimmicky!

But here are the down sides, its a plasma so it does get some image pretension but its not bad and fades quickly. And here is the big kicker! When plasma's first came out there was a gap between the plasma screen and the outer screen, how ever that gap was removed to reduce reflection and to make them thinner. However plasma's put off heat this causes thermal expansion, the molecules speed apart inside the unit swelling the whole TV a very small amount. Now that there is no gap in the screen Samsung plasma's have been suffering from internal cracks on the plasma screen its self! The swelling forces the two screens so close together that the very hard outer glass cracks the week inner plasma screen. This is not covered by samsung, and if it happens to you, you will be denid by there warranty department!
