Energy Guide Even before you turn it on, the Samsung PN51D450 51" Plasma TV enhances your environment by simply being a beautiful object. The ToC (Touch of Color) narrow bezel creates an illusion of floating which is augmented by the 1" (25.4mm) wafer thin panel. It's when you fire it up, however that it becomes obvious that the PN51D450 is at the frontier of a flat panel breakthrough, which turns traditional passive viewing into a completely interactive experience.

Furthermore, ConnectShare Movie technology allows users to connect a thumb drive or digital camera quickly and easily. With the user friendly interface, you will have access to videos, a music playlist and pictures via the remote. Finally, Energy Star compliance ensures that your TV will save you money while it helps preserve the environment.

        Comments about Samsung PN51D450 51" Plasma TV:

        First of all, I am a hard core technologist. My multiple patents for electronics support this. I scrutinize every detail of my technology purchases. After reading reviews and viewing this TV at local stores, I made my purchase through B and H with confidence.

        I bought this TV as an early Christmas present in order to watch football before the end of the season. It was delivered free but took ten days to get to my home. That was probably my mistake for not jumping on a delivery request schedule emailed to me by the shipper.

        The delivery service was "across one threshold" and two young men brought it into my kitchen. They were going to leave immediately but I said "Wait--let's inspect for screen damage." They removed the box and I inspected the screen and all was well.

        The size of the screen was HUGE in my 12 foot living room. The colors were vivid, and the contrast ratio amazing. To the uninitiated, the screen seems dark, but that is because of the difference between the brightest brights and darkest darks is so great, and when there are lots of darks, well it seems that way.

        I could have gone 1080, but the price threshold was too high. I could have gone to a smaller screen, but the $/inch made this 51" screen obvious.

        I stayed up all night and watched in non-HD before attaching my DVD player and viewing the movie Avatar. The picture and sound are simply amazing.

        I bought this HDTV as the best performing bang for the buck--it is not a "computer connected TV"--I will achieve that with a computer/WiFi enabled blue ray player as my next step.

        There is no comparison to the $699 LED 32 inch HDTV I bought in 2009. The technology changes so fast it is always hard to decide when to jump in.

        I could have easily paid $1299 for a "higher" performing LED unit, but what is the payback with the obsoletion factor so present? You can only have bragging rights (if that is what you want) for about a year.

        Buy this HDTV and you will not be disappointed. Do it now.

              The new tv is an upgrade from our last one. The picture is clear and the settings are easy to adjust.

              We had not bought new cables, and we were having problems with the picture when using the VCR. New cables fixed it. It also had digital sound output, so get the digital sound cable, too.

              Samsung does a great TV.

                    There seems to be a lot about this TV that I haven't explored, but what has been done is a bunch of game playing & movie watching - all un-excelled - this was worth waiting for - the new trimlines give a bigger pic - sharp detail - great color - this is the Awesome One - No faults at this point.
