|With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience. If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get. |

If you're reading this review, you're probably in the same boat I was in several weeks ago when I was shopping for a 55+" LCD/LED/Plasma HDTV. If you're in the "should I get an LCD/LED or Plasma TV" mindset, read on. If you're set on getting a Plasma and really care to just know more of what's so great about this specific model, skip to the next paragraph. Yes, I was in the market for EITHER an LCD/LED or Plasma. During the many days I spent researching differences/advantages/disadvantages of LCD/LED versus Plasma, I came across a lot of pros and cons for both platforms. There are supporters and bashers of both and at the end of the day, it all comes down to personal preference. I'm not really going to go into the differences between the two platforms as there is a plethora of information on the Internet that goes into great details laying that down (just google 'plasma vs lcd'). Instead, I'm going to give you my reasoning for going with Plasma. It is a known fact that LCD TVs exhibit a "blurring" of the image during fast motion. This is why all the different manufacturers out there have 120Hz and 240Hz models -- and you pay a premium for these over the standard 60Hz LCD TVs. However, if you get the chance, go to your nearby electronics store and take a look at these 120Hz and/or 240Hz LCD TVs with a BluRay movie playing. (And be sure the 120Hz/240Hz is not turned off as there is a way to turn that off -- which defeats the purpose of paying a premium for the feature in the first place). Observe how the movie doesn't have that cinematic motion-picture feel.Read more ›
I wanted to write this review since I saw another review stating that they had issues watching 480i content with this TV. I haven't found anywhere where this is well documented and on top of that, I had absolutely no problem watching regular DVD's on this TV with my HD DVD player Toshiba HD-A35 1080p HD DVD Playerthrough an HDMI cable. They played stunningly (especially for a regular DVD). The picture was crisp and clear on DVD not to mention how it looks when I play an HD DVD. Perhaps the reviewer may need to update their firmware on their hardware; otherwise I'm not sure why they couldn't watch a standard DVD on an HD DVD player. I have yet to try any games on this TV so I can't rate it in that area.
I have had no issues with the volume controls or loudness of the regular speakers. I currently do not have a home theater and these controls are set lower than what I've had to set my other 2 TV's at (a 42" inch and 52" Toshiba Regza LCD TV). The speakers get a + from me.
I was very worried about burn in after purchasing this TV. I have only had LCD's therefore the issue of burn in never arose. I have researched this problem a lot and it seems although it can still be an issue it isn't as prevalent as it once was.Read more ›
And no, it's not my electrical power: I have a Monster power center, and previously had Samsung's PN58A550 plugged in to exactly the same outlet, and it had no buzz whatsoever.
Reviews on the 'net indicate that I'm not alone in this problem - supposedly 1/3 of folks owning this set have reported the same annoying buzz. I had thus hoped to get lucky if I just kept getting replacements from Amazon, but each of the 3 replacement sets I've gotten have had the same problem, though on this last one the buzz is a bit softer and less directional. (With previous sets, the buzz was concentrated in a column from the middle of the set towards the viewer; with this latest one it's emitted diffusely from the front and back of the TV.)
I've called Samsung each time, and the last 2 times the person I conversed with there indicated that Samsung had been receiving a number of complaints on this count, so I must express some surprise that almost no other reviews of this TV here on Amazon report this problem ... so I'm beginning to wonder how many of these reviews are seeded by Samsung itself. (??!)
With the last set I returned, I had Samsung send out a technician in hope that the problem was repairable. He arrived, and said there was nothing he could do about the buzz because his instructions from Samsung were that if the TV is turned up above 25 and the buzz wasn't detectable while sound was coming from the TV, he wasn't supposed to repair it.Read more ›

This TV-set is excellent! It's picture is sharp, and it's sound, though not great, is on the better end of built-in TV-set speakers.Published on August 8, 2013 by Concerned Citizen

After 17 months of ownership, there was a slight electrical "POP" a whiff of something singed, and the TV lost all picture. Read morePublished on September 8, 2011 by mary
This is an awesome TV. The only complaint is that, like any plasma TV, you have to watch how long you leave an image standing still or it WILL burn into it. Read morePublished on August 6, 2011 by Ralphie
Great while it lasted, but at 14-months and just out of warranty the screen needs to be replaced. Not sure we'll go with Samsung again.Published on March 4, 2011 by Ska Plan
