Energy Guide The Samsung PN51E490 51" Class Slim PDP HDTV delights the senses not only with the quality of its video and audio components but with the sheer number of features it provides. With 600Hz Subfield motion technology, it renders the smoothest, most lifelike action you can see on an HDTV. A real black panel is an advancement in software technology, which provides deeper and darker black levels to deliver bolder hues, higher contrast, and smoother, clearer picture quality. Also, with the ConnectShare Movie feature, users can connect a thumb drive or digital camera quickly and easily with access to videos, a music playlist and pictures via the remote.

With two HDMI inputs you can hook up your DVD, Blu-ray disc player, cable or satellite HD box. See how 3D HD movies and sports come alive with a true sense of depth and action that leaps from the screen with 3D picture performance.

The PN51E490 is Energy Star compliant which means that it saves you money while helping to save the environment.

        Comments about Samsung PN51E490 51" Class Slim PDP HDTV:

        Even though its a 720p and Active 3D, this HDTV is just fantastic for the price.
        Being 600hz Plasma, it provides super smooth video, even at full 720p under intense action scenes.
        Blacks and colors are very adequate and little to no fine-tuning is required.
        2D to 3D conversion is interesting and does kind of work, so its a plus for me.
        It comes with 2 active 3D glasses, so, an extra savings right there.
        BHPhotovideo online service was fantastic, no issues, HDTV shipping was fast, delivery company was extremely professional and courteous, and waited patiently until I finished inspecting the HDTV.

              Quality of picture is great, 3D is great etc.

              Disadvantages: can be quite hard to tell which TVs have which features as there are so many in the range.

              To confirm, this TV doesn't have apps, nor Anynet+, nor audio return (you need a separate cable to get audio out to a home theater etc.). This wasn't particularly clear from Samsung or other vendors' sales pages.
