Size Name: 51-inches Verified Purchase
I am very pleased so far with this TV. I have bought several large flat panel TVs over the last few years and this one I am really pleased. I have been pleased with Samsung in general and only buy Samsung now for displays/TVs at this point (have 4 large screen TVs and 5 monitors in my house). As others have mentioned, it is a new model for this year and really packs a ton of features in for the price. I love plasma (over LED and LCD) and was really surprised how the weight has come down. The picture is great. One feature I really wanted to make sure I got was the ethernet input because with more and more stuff moving to internet, I felt it would be a good idea to have. I am finishing a basement and have the opportunity to run the ethernet right to where i will put this tv. Don't get me wrong, the built in WIFI works perfectly too, I just wanted to have this option too and many other models don't have this. One thing I was not aware of is that it doesn't have a VGA input. I was planning on using that to hook up a computer. For me its not a big deal as I can use HDMI, but thought I would mention as I didn't notice that before ordering. Overall I think this is a great TV and a great deal - would definitely recommend and I am seriously considering buying another one for another room (yes, I have been told I have a problem with buying too many TVs).

UPDATE (4/15/12) - After several days of usage, I noticed a buzzing sound when sitting in just the right (or wrong depending on how you look at it) place. Sitting directly in front and about 8 feet away I noticed a pretty load buzzing sound. If I moved closer or to the side I did not really notice it. (I couldn't really try moving back based on the way the room is where I had it).

Size Name: 60-inches Verified Purchase
The product photo for these TVs (the 550 series) shows a matte, anti-reflective screen. This is misleading. The 550 series does NOT feature an anti-reflective screen. It has no anti-reflective coating at all. It is as reflective as glass, and consequently not the best choice for rooms with windows.

Amazon's product description for the 550 series is identical to its description for the next model up (the 6500 series). Reading the two descriptions, a reasonable person will conclude that the only difference between the 550 and the 6500 is the type of stand that the TV sits on. In particular, both TVs are said to feature a "Real Black Panel" and both screens are shown with the same matte finish. So why not get this TV (the 550) and save $200?

Here is the crucial difference: This TV (the 550) has the basic "Real Black Panel," which Samsung describes as an "advancement in software technology that provides deeper and darker black levels for bolder hues, higher contrast, and smoother, clearer picture quality." In other words, the basic "Real Black" is purely a function of software, not of anti-reflective coating.

The 6500 on the other hand has "Real Black Panel Pro," which Samsung describes as "An advancement within the panel structure of the plasma and a software improvement that depicts blacker blacks, bolder color, higher contrast and exceptional picture quality. This technological improvement provides the most cinematic viewing experience available." In other words, it has the software as well as the anti-reflective coating that distinguishes the high-end Samsungs. Amazon mentions that the much pricier 7000 and 8000 models have "Real Black Panel Pro," but neglects to mention that the 6500 has it too.

Again, it depends on the lighting situation in the intended room, but in most situations, the 6500 is well worth the added expense.

Size Name: 60-inches Verified Purchase
If you are looking to get an amazing TV at a fantastic price, you've come to the right place. This TV has an absolutely fantastic picture, surprisingly good 3D features, and an array of useful Smart features. Whether you're a movie fanatic, or a hardcore gamer, this TV will certainly impress. Add in the features of the TV on top of the outstanding quality that Samsung continues to deliver and then look at the price, and you have a no competition situation. Take it from someone who normally has buyers remorse, I love this purchase and have no remorse over it.

Picture Quality:
The picture quality on this TV was a huge surprise to me. I had read the reviews on here which talked about the outstanding quality and Plasma's have always impressed me more than other TV technologies, but this TV was absolutely outstanding. This TV looks great not only on HD, but even on SD content. I have Charter Digital Cable with HD and my box is hooked up through HDMI. As one would expect the HD channels look great. What really impressed me is the crispness of the TV on even SD content. Most SD content is filmed in 4:3 aspect ratio and on large HD TVs such as this one, they tend to have issues with pixelation. The picture on this TV is sharp and clear regardless of the stream quality.

Sound Quality:
My apartment isn't particularly huge and the sound on the TV is not necessarily something to speak of, but it is surprisingly good. For a normal sized room it gets the job done. My next investment is a full surround sound system and when I get to that point, this TV is equipped to handle it with the optical audio out jack. In the meantime though, I can continue to enjoy the sound quality the TV has built-in.
