Samsung PN51F5500 review

 

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.

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

 

£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
