Samsung PN60E550 Review – 60-inch Plasma HDTV

 

The 60-inch plasma HDTV set is one of the inexpensive and budget 3D HDTV sets launched by Samsung. Despite of its low price-tag, the array of features and functionalities offered by the model can still suit the entertainment needs of a modern family....

Samsung has designed the model with built in Wi-Fi, web browser and Smart TV integration to provide users with a smart and convenient internet access. You can use the web browser to browse through your favorite websites on the TV screen, and stay...

A Great TV But With Some Flaws

 

I bought this TV directly from Samsung during a promotion that meant a VERY significant break on the price. I am now wondering if this was part of a batch of known problematic units that they were just dumping to get rid of them. That's disappointing...

Excellent picture (always expected with Samsung), swivel stand. Internal speakers are acceptable, even if not outstanding. 2 USB ports; will accept a keyboard for input. 3D capability was the main selling point, plus I wanted to go a bit larger with...

GENERAL CONS: No audio output (?). 3D requires active 3D glasses which require batteries, but the 3D effect is amazing! I have had several problems with this TV: NETWORK CONNECTION: The TV sits on a stand along with a Samsung Blu-Ray player and a game...

Display looks good when it works

I have a 67" Samsung DLP TV that cost $2500. After warranty expired ( a very short 1 year) the TV developed white spots due to the failure of the DLP chip. Despite an overwhelming number of customers with the same problem Samsung refuses to address the...

Superb TV

 

Overall, the TV earns 5 eggs from me. I did not find a single rotten egg in the box. The fact that the TV hums comes with the territory of Plasma technology. I can say definitely that the issue is much better then in the past. Also its obvious that...

*Great quality picture as always from Samsung. *Even on basic cable, HD channels come through crystal clear. *TV came with a pair of 3D glasses. *The apps feature is rich and works good. *Fast built in WIFI allows for smooth Netflix. *Xbox 360 looks...

Right out of the box, I heard an audible buzz or humm if you will from the tv. This is inherent with Plasma's. I knew this issue going into this purchase. The buzz quickly gets faded out when any amount of sound comes from the tv and quickly turns into...

WOW!

 

I have tried hard but I cannot detect the buzzing others have mentioned. Neither can my wife & her hearing is excellent. Maybe this has been fixed. Internet seems clumsy using the remote, but I understand there is an app that will let me use my...

A great value, beautiful picture & better sound than I expected. I'm still planning on a home entertainment speaker system before the Superbowl. Newegg had it here in just a few days, with free shipping. As you would expect with a plasma, the picture...

The picture was not perfect out of the box; bright whites seemed too white. There are plenty of adjustment options and I think I've about gotten it fixed.

My first High Def TV

 

I got this TV for 3 reasons : High Def , Sports , and 3D . My Blue ray player does not support 3D so I had to order a New one . Other than that , This is the Best TV I have ever owned. Still waiting for the 3 D experience.

Beutiful Picture ! I switched from old projection type 45" inch to Plasma 60 " and its amaizing. Lots of features . I can see the freckles and blemishes on the faces of people ; I dont hear any Buzz sound. Football Games are outstanding. High def...

Speakers are not good but I installed a good sound system ; A definate must for a TV like this ; I havent used the internet through the TV yet, so cant comment on that. Not as bright as an LED TV, but I knew that before I bought it
