* Superb deep blacks. Better than any LED LCD TV's.
* Skin colors are very realistic.
* In movie mode, the TV gives off very, very little heat.
* You don't need to have the TV calibrated. I made the adjustments myself and there are tons of user adjustable settings.
* The image is big. We sit about 8' or 9' away from the the TV and the picture is not too big. It's like being in a movie theater.
* The weight has been reduced to 97 pounds. My previous 63" Samsung (which I returned) weighed 75 pounds more.
* The TV can swivel.
* With Blu-Ray and HD content, the picture quality is truly astonishing. I have had the TV for a full year now and I'm still in awe.
* The screen is very shiny. Avoid having any sources of light behind you.

[Mar 22, 2012 update: Still no problems and I'm still in awe of the picture quality. I'm so glad that I bought this TV]

[May, 2011 update: The picture is still awesome. I haven't had to tweak the TV in months. As it turned out, I didn't need the have the TV calibrated and I got my $300 back (it's a long story). The TV image is truly spectacular. I've now had the TV for a full year and I'm still in love. To truly appreciate what this TV can deliver, you have to watch Blu-Ray or HD television.]

[May 20, 2010 update: I've had the TV for several days and the only other change I needed to make to improve the picture quality is to set the darkness level setting to 'darkest'. Unlike my previous LCD TVs, this required just a few tweaks for my own personal preferences. Unless you're going out to the movie theater to see that latest release or want a night out, you'll prefer this TV over what you'll see in a movie theater.

We had been looking for a TV to replace the '08 Samsung LN52A650 52" LCD which is a great TV that does everything exceptionally well *except* sports where there is noticeable blurring. Since plasmas have a 600 Hz refresh rate compared to 240HZ for the best LED/LCDs, we decided to go back to plasma.

I checked out some reviews and narrowed it down to about 10 TVs in the 60-65" range and went to BB to look at them. They had the PN58C550 on display and it looked fantastic. I asked two different salesman what they thought of it. One said Samsung made the best plasmas and that plasmas offered the most realistic color. A different salesman said he just bought the PN63C550 and loved it. I asked him why and he said he'd been in the business for 17 years and he thought this was the best TV out there for the price.

I checked Consumer Reports and they rate the PN63C550 (along with the LG Infinia 60PK950) as the #1 TV of all plasmas and LED/LCDs with a score of 81. With that, we ordered it on a Fri and it was delivered the following Wed. The CEVA delivery was as promised. The box is huge as another reviewer said.

The picture is stunning right out of the box with no blurring during sports. The picture with a blu-ray player is equally impressive. I tried about 5 different blu-ray movies through it and can't see any difference between this TV and our '08 LCD with blu-ray (which is a good thing). After watching about 8 hours of football on Sunday on this TV, it was barely warm on the front and at the vents in back...I would estimate 90 degrees. There is no buzzing at all on this TV, even with the volume muted and standing inches away from it. Standard def picture seems about the same as other HDTVs, nothing special.

We had to have four shipped before one finally arrived undamaged. The first two had serious cracks, looked like they were caused by the box being dropped. The 3rd one was delivered by the same people who had delivered the first two. They didn't even unload this one. They had me look at it in the truck. There was a hole in the box that appeared, in size, to be from a fork lift. I was able to stick my hand into the hole and feel the cracked screen. Finally, the 4th arrived in mint condition and it's awesome. I order my first on 8/7. The 4th arrived on 8/27. The Samsung packaging is excellent and it seems to me the box would need to be seriously abused to damage the television? Don't understand how Amazon could be making much of a profit on these systems if they need to ship four to get one undamaged to the customer. I did have some problems with Amazon customer service regarding a delay in crediting my account for one of the TV's but after a total of a couple of hours on the phone everything was straightened out.

We're glad we hung in there, after two it was tough... but my wife said let's just drain their stock till we get a good one... only took 2 more tries.

Yes, I absolutely love this TV! I've had numerous LCD TV's, and evenlast year's Samsung 63" PN63B550. Since I have very few windows nearby to cause glare on the shinny screen I went with another Plasma for my family room. This PN63C550 TV was actually the warranty replacement for my PN63B550, which buzzed so much from day one to day 60 when it left the house that I could hear it will sitting 10' feet away watching the TV and normal volume. I did an on-line service ticket with Samsung, they sent a tech, the tech thought it the buzzing was a just a little loud. He actually called Samsung a day later and without any asking or begging, Samsung sent me a replacement TV, this PN63C550. It is almost silent due to better insulation used and it much lighter. It is a thing of beauty and doesn't blur like all LCD TVs I've either owned or looked at in a showroom. There's no on-screen / on-line features, but my Samgsung Blu-Ray player and Nintendo Wii give me those features. Because the Blu-Ray and TV have "Anynet+", a real plus is that feature's automatic turning on of the Blu-Ray and setting the input to Blu-Ray. No regrets here!
