The F5500 is cheaper than the ST60, but its picture isn't anywhere near as good. From color response to black levels to shadow detail, the Panasonic ST60 is superior in every way. That's not to say the Samsung F5500 is a poor television -- it's not,...

The Samsung E5500 plasma TV offers a very attractive mix of features, performance, and design for the right price; black levels are very good for the money; Smart TV and a usable Web browser are unexpected bonuses; 51-inch version is relatively energy...

Picture quality deteriorates quickly as room lighting brightens; relatively inaccurate color of red; poor sound quality.

The Samsung F5500 plasma offers great features and very good picture quality, but its performance suffers significantly under the lights.

Samsung PS51F5500 review

 

Samsung is famous for its high-end TVs (anyone for a curved OLED?) but, as the PS51F5500 shows, isn't afraid to get its hands dirty at the budget end of the market. For a good chunk less than £1,000, this plasma gives you a helluva lot – 51 inches of...

Superb picture quality for the price; sounds better than some more expensive sets; excellent Smart functionality

Motion judder (no Samsung 'canceller' at this level); AV connectivity could be better; USB disk recording format PC-incompatible

Samsung PS51F5500 review

 

£700 for a 51in flatscreen with awesome picture quality and great smarts seems too good to be true. It's not.

Loads of screen for little money ; Strong picture quality ; Loads of smart TV content

Voice control is patchy at best

Big TV on a budget, but with the smarts you'd expect from a wallet-buster

Stacks of crisp detail ; Natural colour palette ; Great black levels ; Strong 3D performance ; Class-leading smart TV service, great price

Fantastic smart TV content, but this plasma TV's picture quality is only good in the dark

Samsung PS51F5500

 

An awesome 51-inch plasma TV for less than £750.

Great value ; Excellent 2D and 3D pictures ; Expansive Smart TV features

Slightly sluggish Smart menus at times ; Pictures not as bright as LCD ones ; Standard definition images lose a little colour naturalism

This can be particularly aggravating when using the voice recognition system, as there’s quite a lengthy delay between first pressing the Voice button on the remote and the voice menu appearing.
