good price and picture

 

Great clear picture, crisp sound, and good price. Lots of different options on the menu

A little on the heavy side but can substitute for what it offers

Skewed reviews

 

I really am considering buying this, and would appreciate any reviews from LEGITIMATE owners of this TV. Newegg rocks - woot!

I'll just skew the review data a little more in favor of Samsung - attempting to cancel out these 2 morons who felt the need to use this feedback mechanism, as a forum to discuss features

Dumb people

At the Movies!!! In your living room!

 

Beautiful Tv, I always do a lot of research before I buy anything over $50-$100, so this being roughly $1300 was definitely one to research. I finally picked the Samsung SPS4243 42" Plasma EDTV because of overall product quality/features. It's got ...

Amazing picture quality with all you need

Very minimal wash out in dark scenes

Works for me

 

During my months of consideration I went from LCD HD to DLP HD to Plasma HD, back to LCD HD, back to DLP HD, & then ended up at EDTV Plasma.

Stylish, $$$$, inputs galore (not that I need them), $$$$, HD channels look fantastic (un-noticable difference side-by-side w/ HD at 8+ feet), $$$$.

Sound is nothing special, although w/ the $$$$ you save you can put down $500 on a decent 5.1 system & still have $500 saving in your pocket by not going HD

Samsung 42 in. Plasma EDTV

 

I bought this model after first checking out a 46 in.

Excellent picture, PC input, PIP, front inputs, good alternative to HDTV, shiny black frame

PIP can only be used with two different sources
