Energy GuideThe Samsung PN51E530 51" Class Slim PDP Full HDTV delights the senses not only with the quality of its video and audio components but with the sheer number of features it provides.

It will provide you with a high-definition audio experience that delivers surround sound multi-channel content, using built-in TV speakers to significantly enhance both the depth and dimension of audio right through the TV for a simulated surround sound experience.

    When I was looking for a new TV I spent a lot of time looking at reviews trying to find the best value and get a TV that I could be happy to have because it looked amazing. After looking at all the reviews and comparing TVs locally I decided on a plasma and found this excellent deal on this Samsung, and the sound is really not all that bad, sounds find for a TV. Also, I know not the most professional way to set up I'm sure, but used a DVD with the THX calibration and the TV was near perfect in Movie mode for every setting. I do have it is my living room, which has quite a few windows, not the worst glare in the world, but not so bad you can't watch TV. I use blackout curtains anyways. Great TV, and it got here quicker than I previously thought it would, although there was a delay in shipment. Delivery guys even took it out of the box for me.

        Used this TV in our bedroom. Picture quality is excellent and what I would expect from a Samsung Plasma TV. Setup was easy and there is not tons of options to confuse you. If you are looking for a TV with a great picture and don't need all the bells and whistles (3D and Smart TV), this is the TV to buy.

            We bought this TV set for our elderly mother who had recently moved into a new, smaller apartment. We needed something easy enough for her to use, yet with crisp, clear images and the ability to plug in a usb thumb drive to view photos, and to let them run in a slideshow. The set meets our expectations very well, with one exception: the connectors for the cables are positioned such that the cables stick straight out the back of the set, and are not indented enough to allow use of a super slim wall mounting bracket. We ended up buying 90 degree connectors for all of them and that works. The only other complaint is the usb port is also in the back of the TV where it is inaccessible to her. We solved that with a short usb extension cable with a 90 degree connector; we taped the "business" end to the back of the set where it's accessible to her.

                This HDTV was purchased for my elderly neighbors as a replacement for an older CRT set they had. I have purchased Samsung sets before and as no surprise this time, it has more than exceeded my expectations. The plasma set was choosen because one neighbor has macular degeneration and is able to view the pictures much better on the plasma set versus the other types of TV's available on the market.

                  I only have one tiny thing about this tv. The default setting for the picture is "standard", which personally to me, is an insult to this TV's capability. Its dim, the colors are not vivid, BUT! The "standard" setting is the Energy Star approved one, There is a setting called "Dynamic" which puts out a PERFECT and BEAUTIFUL picture. Problem solved.

                  Unless you need the gadgets of a smart TV, I cannot fathom why you need any more tv than what this has to offer. For $, the plasma picture is as good as I have seen on sets costing far more. The sound is mediocre, as with all thin tv's, but you just know that you have to route the sound to a sound system. I would have liked RCA outputs for that, without having to buy a $20 coaxial to RCA converter box. I have to send the TV sound from my cable box to the sound system, but that leaves my DVD/BluRay Player relying on the tv's small speakers.

                    Comments about Samsung PN51E530 51" Class Slim PDP Full HDTV:

                    When I was looking for a new TV I spent a lot of time looking at reviews trying to find the best value and get a TV that I could be happy to have because it looked amazing. After looking at all the reviews and comparing TVs locally I decided on a plasma and found this excellent deal on this Samsung, and the sound is really not all that bad, sounds find for a TV. Also, I know not the most professional way to set up I'm sure, but used a DVD with the THX calibration and the TV was near perfect in Movie mode for every setting. I do have it is my living room, which has quite a few windows, not the worst glare in the world, but not so bad you can't watch TV. I use blackout curtains anyways. Great TV, and it got here quicker than I previously thought it would, although there was a delay in shipment. Delivery guys even took it out of the box for me.
