Samsung HP-T4264


Ease of use and a low price, along with great specifications and some nice features, earned the Samsung HP-T4264 high marks despite a picture that, while not bad, wasn't as good as on the other four plasma sets we reviewed for our November 2007 issue's...

Inexpensive Easy to set up and use

Can't handle 1080p signals Average-quality picture

The HP-T4264's remote is long and a bit unwieldy, but it's programmable, and some of the buttons light up

There are no bad seats when you're watching the 50" widescreen HP-T5064 plasma HDTV. Even in a brightly-lit room, patented Ultra FilterBright keeps the pictures looking clearer in details and deeper in black at every angle. Samsung's powerful...

Samsung HP-T5064


Editors' Note 04/17/2008: The rating on this review has been modified from 8.0 to 7.6 due to changes in the competitive marketplace.

Produces deep blacks with excellent shadow detail; accurate primary colors; numerous picture controls; great range of burn-in protection modes; extensive connectivity featuring three HDMI and one PC input

Glare-reducing screen could be more effective; color decoding desaturates green; some false contouring.

The picture quality of the Samsung HP-T5064 places it among the top tier of 50-inch plasma HDTVs.

Samsung HP-T5064


Samsung is one of those mega-companies that seems to do everything well. Once known for cheap, second-rate consumer products, Samsung has steadily improved its reputation until it is now one of the most respected manufacturers in the world. Its DLP...

There’s a whole lot to like about this set and very little to dislike. If you want an excellent picture with superb blacks, eye-popping yet natural colors, and exquisite detail, you’ll definitely find it here. At $2700, it is the most expensive plasma...

Samsung HP-T5064 50-Inch Plasma HDTV Review and Prices


As one of the top manufacturers in the category, Samsung is a solid choice for a plasma HDTV, and the HP-T5064 is no exception. This 50-inch set boasts a sleek look that will dress up any room. The screen blends into the mirrored black bezel as if it...

Rich black levels, plenty of picture setting options, sleek design looks impressive in any room

Antiglare technology doesn't reduce all reflections

Hard to tell it is only 720P. Great TV for the price


If you are on a budget and want a big bad ass TV, then this is your ticket.

I've had this TV for two years now and it works great constantly. I little grainy on some gray to black transitions, but not worth complaining about ; Overall I love this TV

The volume buttons on the side of the TV are easy to reach, but hard to tell which of the 1o buttons you are pressing. You have to look on the side to tell which button is which

So good yet so bad


When I first started looking for tvs, I based my decision on all the positive reviews written on this tv. I think there are a lot of amature reviewers that are not accurately evaluating the tv. Either that or mine is a lemon. The repair man is coming...

2 HDMI plugs and lots of hook up options including a pc designated hook up

terrible low resolution performance

Excellent picture- excellent price. Highly recommend!


I've had this TV for over 6 months, extremely happy with my purchase. Burn-in does exist, my own fault though. When I bought a PS3 and started using it I didn't make the necessary adjustments to the settings. Thank you Samsung for the "White" screen...

Excellent picture (1080 better than 720? all marketing hype, read cnet's comparison). 1080 is only noticeable on TV's larger than 50". Although 720 tv's are getting tought to find now a days. great features to reduce burn-in, sleek design

remote control, ok speaker
