The gentlemen who complained about the noise clearly has some other issue going on. I encourage him to try and get a full replacement from his reseller or Samsung. Mine makes no noticeable noise at all.

The B560 is an interesting animal in it carries all of the higher-end features that the 8 series carries at a lesser cost (TOC, CinemaSmooth, etc). It is in fact one of Samsung's best plasmas despite being a 5 series. The "B Series" Samsung plasmas are without doubt the best plasmas on the market. In a world consumed by LCDs and their over saturated, unrealistic brightness and color, plasmas just don't look as bright and noticeable on the showroom floor. The irony about this is that once you get any display home, inclduing a plasma, you'll have to turn the brightness down to achieve any realistic color space. It's a known fact that manufacturers create special default profiles that blow colors out of proportion which attracts the "dumb consumer". It's a shame that plasmas haven't done as well as LCDs as of late, but the B series plasmas are pound for pound the best TVs out there, and the B560 is the pinnacle of that value.

Don't get caught up in super-saturated colors and brightness levels. Black levels and realistic natural colors are what really matters, and plasma is still the best technology for that. Additionally, the off-angle viewing of plasmas is in a league of its own.

The motion is so natural, the colors are accurate, the black levels can't be beat. It's absolutely great. The power usage is significantly less than other plasmas including the "A series" Samsung plasmas. However, LCDs are still less power and heat consuming (the only negative of this TV compared to an LCD).

I have had the 58B560 for about a month now, and agree with the posts above that it is the best value available today, and has an amazing picture. How amazing? We bought "Twister" to watch on it, and not only noticed that we could see each and every one of Helen Hunt's hairs blowing in the wind, we could see that the makeup artist left a few pancake lumps on her cheek! Now having noticed these little details, you can imagine how exciting it is when the tornado picks up the tanker truck and throws it at the camera!

The only thing you will be disappointed in is this: once you experience high-def 58" TV, you will really think that the standard def that is still the standard on most TV stations really looks bad. I understand that you can tweak this and make it better, but I haven't had the time or interest, since I don't watch much TV, the little I do watch is usually available in high-def and I bought this rig to watch high def sports and movies (both of which it excells at).

One tip: Samsung makes an amazing line of Blu Ray players that link automatically to the TV and really work great. They do such a great job of upconverting standard DVDs to 1080 high def that it is really hard to tell if you have a blu ray or a DVD in the player. I really like my "all Samsung" system--it really coordinates nicely and you can actually download all the movies you want from NetFlix for $9.95 per month (although the quality is somewhere between standard def TV and DVD--good enough, but not great--I understand that this is a NetFlix issue and they are working on it, and that my Samsung equipment will display the better quality when it becomes available).

I tortured myself for months, researching everything available, reading hours worth of blogs and threads, etc.

Verified Purchase
The picture on this set is simply amazing! It comes loaded with features and a level of adjustability found on sets costing hundreds more from other companies - definitely more bang for the buck with this set. Color out of the box was very accurate, rich and pleasing. The set does have noticeable image retention even with brightness and contrast turned way down to normal levels, but this should not be confused with "burn-in" that won't go away - a few minutes of normal watching makes the IR disappear. This set replaced a 7yo Sony RPTV in a room with a large bay window, so I was concerned how well the shiny reflective screen would fare with glare. As it turns out, there was no cause for concern as the reflections were minimal and practically non-existent compared to the previous set.

The internal speakers are "hollow" and seriously lack any depth and/or "liveliness", but IMO people interested in a set like this are likely to be using an external sound system anyway. To be fair, this is not limited to the Samsung - it was a common fault with every flat screen I listened to so I really don't take off points for this weakness.

So then...why only two stars? As amazing as the picture was on this set, the viewing experience was marred by a loud and constant buzz emanating from the front of the set. I'm talking loud, easily audible from over 15 ft. away and most notable when sitting directly front and center. Before I ordered, I was aware that some buzzing is normal with all plasma TV's so I didn't consider it odd when I first turned it on. Try as I might to live with it, after three weeks I had to send the set back as it was quite apparent even over normal volume levels.
