Samsung PN59D550

 

Samsung D550 series information: The review of the 59-inch PN59D550 is based on our hands-on experience with the 51-inch PN51D550 Samsung TV. Our observations are applicable to the Samsung 64-inch PN64D550. Samsung says that the three Plasma TVs have...

Most affordable active-shutter 51-inch 3D HDTV available (as of publishing) ; Comes with two pair of active-shutter glasses ; Still can’t beat plasma blacks, contrast, color accuracy and smooth motion

No Web apps (Netflix, etc.) ; Remote not backlit ; Plasma still has reflectivity issues

We’ve seen the Samsung PN51D550 for under $900 on legitimate online sites, which is really a great deal. If you can live without Internet apps this is an excellent choice.

Pretty good Tv related to price.

 

Love it. :)

I really love plasma since all came prepared to handle fast moving movies, eliminating the problems that some low value led or lcd have, and video quality like always is excellent , samsung did it again, one the best Tvs on market , excellent size

like all the plasma , the glass has some reflection but is way less than my 60 inch Lg, so is a improvement over other models, so keep it in shadow are , if is on those or increase video to vivid can reduced it dramatically, i have curtains on my living r

Great TV for a great price.

 

Bought a mid-grade LED for $2,100. Sure the picture had more "pop" but even after making all the adjustments; athletes running (esp baseball players running in the outfield) had a haze around them, even a little off center viewing turned blacks into...

Bang for the buck! Does what it is supposed to do. BIG, good sound, great 3D, comes with two pairs of glasses, great picture adjustment controls, attractive dark glass bezel as opposed to cheap plastic, light weight, etc

Screen glare, may not be suitable for some extreme sun mounting locations. Acceptable in my bright two story living room and west facing wall
