5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent TV!, April 30, 2012

This review is from: Samsung PN51E6500 51-Inch 1080p 600Hz 3D Slim Plasma HDTV (Black) (Electronics)
This is truly an excellent TV. I've owned several HDTV's including the vaunted Pioneer Kuro KRP-500m. This Samsung is by far my favorite. The picture quality is fantastic. I've been watching the Movie preset with no further adjustments. Color is perfect. Images are clean and sharp (but not overly sharp). It makes other TV's I've owned look blurry. Blacks are good, not great. Regardless, I can't say enough about how good the picture is. The design is top notch. The brushed bezel and black stand look high end. I briefly owned the E550 plasma and this one looks significantly nicer. I have the TV in a very bright room. Glare was a nightmare with the E550, but isn't a problem with the E6500. Online services work well. I downloaded the 3D demo app. 3D is very impressive, although mostly a gimmick as far as I'm concerned. A quick note about buzz, yes this TV buzzes although not enough to be a problem. I can't hear it at normal volume levels. For comparison, the Kuro I owned drove me crazy because it was so loud. I imagine room acoustics play a big part in how bad the problem is. Maybe I'm just lucky, but I consider it a non-issue with this set. Overall, I'm thrilled with this TV. It's the 8th HDTV I've owned and it's definitely the best of the bunch (and that includes the Kuro). Picture quality is virtually identical to the flagship E8000 for considerably less money. Highly recommended.
