Samsung PS50Q7HD


This 50-inch TV has promising specifications to back up its visual style statement

Looks great, Pictures are excellent, Fantastic value

Poor sound, Just one HDMI

Black levels are particularly superb, and when you couple this with the formidable colour palette on display, it's looking like that the PS50Q7HD is a real bargain

Samsung PS-50P7HD


With its ultra-minimalist, high-gloss black lines it really is a sight for sore eyes

Good, intense picture quality, Sensible design

Noise can be exaggerated

Next there's FilterBright technology, which adds a filtering layer into the plasma panel to reduce the impact of onscreen reflections by up to 90 per cent - potentially radically increasing the TV's contrast in the process

Flawless HD image quality, Excellent SD capabilities, attractive design

A few minor image quality problems in SD and via PC connection

The Samsung PS50Q7HD delivers high-end image quality at a reasonable price. This is a great unit for High Definition and does a good job for Standard Definition.

Samsung PS50Q7HD 50in plasma TV


If you're looking for a big TV but don't have money to burn, it's your lucky day.

Also startling is a claimed contrast ratio of 10000:1, an outlandish figure that promises black level talents that at least rival those of plasma superstars like the latest models from Panasonic and Pioneer.

Samsung's 50-incher sports the company's usual bargain price tag – but can the performance hold together on such a big screen?

This Samsung plasma isn't flawless, but it does offer fantastic picture quality and a quite phenomenal performance-per-pound ratio

Samsung PS-50P7H


While the P7 is a marginal upgrade over the Q7, we're impressed by the multimedia options that this 50-incher has to offer.

Samsung PS-50Q7HD


An older plasma, that isn't flawless, but it offered fantastic picture quality and a quite phenomenal performance-per-pound ratio for its day.

Samsung keeps the plasma faith with a new feature-packed and remarkably affordable 50 inch HD TV. The Smarthouse team finds out if it's any good.

General performance, price, design, and value

Great features for a bargain price

Philips 42PF7621D: Great Quality Product


My best LCD in the house. I was never very sure about Philips as I had always heard mixed feelings about them. But when you decide to buy a 42" LCD T.V you want something that has great specifications and looks great for a reasonable price. So when we...
