Models in Samsung F5500 series

Brilliant color contrast ; Deep black levels ; Good shadow detail ; Intuitive and feature packed interface ; Affordable

Not stellar in bright rooms ; Some noticeable lag in gaming

Those looking for top-notch picture quality in a 50-inch TV under $1000 will be hard pressed to do better than Samsung’s PN51F5500.

Plasma technology has been around for long enough that it's able to deliver a high-quality display for very little money, and there are two companies at the forefront: Samsung and Panasonic. This year, Panasonic's ST60 received our first five-star...

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.

£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

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

The Samsung PS51F5500 would have been an award winner had we been able to replicate the same image quality regardless of whether the lights were on, but as it’s really only suitable for dark room viewing, the F5500 falls short. Its lack of frame...

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.

Best budget 47in-52in TV, Awards 2013.This is a superb all-rounder, which combines fantastic picture quality with a strong feature set, all at a co

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

SD upscaling could be better ; Whites could be brighter

The Samsung PS51F5500 is a seriously good TV for a seriously good price. At £700 (or even less, if you shop around), you get features and a performance that could worry its more expensive rivals.
