Samsung PN51E530 Review – 51-inch Plasma HDTV

 

The 51-inch plasma TV set is one of the affordable non-3D models launched by Samsung. It offers 1080p HD resolution and impressive video quality, but it lacks most of the advanced features offered by the higher end devices launched by the manufacturer....

However, Samsung has designed the plasma HDTV set without including any wired or wireless internet access option. The lack of these networking options will restrict you scope to access a wide variety of online movies, music, videos, photos, games and...

Great TV for my first plasma

 

Bought this TV as an open box the day after Christmas. Got home and hooked up, and learned that regular satellite TV is not good, so we ordered a new dish and HD DVR box. Can't comment on that, hasn't arrived yet. Watching Blu-Ray movies shows the real...

Awesome picture, and great price

Nothing really, the sound problem everyone complains of should be expected. It has 2 small speakers

great quality tv for a price that can't be beat

 

bought it on sale at best buy. wasn't looking for a tv THIS big, but the price got me. stepped up from a 42 inch samsung plasma with lotsa connections, but it was much thicker than this one. i've got a ps3 hooked up, a mid-level sony a/v receiver...

great resolution, colors are vibrant, motion blur handling is superb, incredibly thin for such a big tv

DOES NOT SWIVEL. not enough connections: no vga or dvi and no hdmi output, sound could be better, hard to see clear pictures at certain angles and/or lighting, not internet port

Great Pic and Sound go hand in hand with a GREAT PRICE.

 

A great 50+ inch TV for less than $650. The picture quality is superb and the sound is great as well. Within 30 minutes of having the TV home, we had it hanging in place on the wall and were watching Tebow and the Broncos in HD. My only regret is that...

Excellent Picture and excellent sound. Simple yet useful controls. Very easy setup

Could use more HDMI ports (only has 2) as well as more Composite and Component ports as well. Perhaps that is what keeps the cost down and if so, I am more than ok with that

No better bang for your buck.

 

I was looking for a set in the $549 - $799 range... Hoped I would find an open box or floor model... I didn't expect to get anything larger than about a 42" for my price:quality criterion... Went to Frys, Walmart, looked on Newegg and Amazon and never...

Excellent picture... The audio is surprisingly great (and I'm an audiophile)... The colors really pop. The features are simple yet useful

The only real cons are just some of the reviews. Evidently, many people have had bad luck with this model. In my own personal opinion, burn in is somewhat of an issue but thats to be expected from the PDP type of display anyhow

Consumer review by:

While operational, it was great!

 

I found the feature set of this hdtv just the ticket for what I was looking for. I was looking for a thin bodied hdtv for bluray and hi-def sports viewing, basically a no frills, quality hdtv viewing experience. With 2 hdmi ports, a usb port, ybr...
