          I absolutely love this TV. True blacks, vivid colors and crisp displays, even with fast motion. I am impressed by Samsung's line of products, and the quality that they display, it's very impressive. This TV is right on the mark. I got it with a great Bundle from B&H as well. I could not be happier with the price and value.

          We bought this TV for an entertainment room in our basement. It has been a pleasure to use so far. The colors are crisp and bright and the quality of the image really stands out. There are no windows in the room we use it in so we weren't very concerned about having issues with brightness. There is a strong reflection from cieling lights, but it not distracting at all when the TV is on unless you are looking for it.

          The Smart TV function was really intuitive and connecting to the internet was really easy and we were watching Netflix in no time at all. Picture quality was great with streamed video content.

              Nice design, great picture. Easy setup (but you will want 2 people for safety,) and with the Samsung Blu-Ray player bundle, the two products communicate directly, so set-up was a breeze. It went more quickly than the manual predicted - we were up and running within an hour, including the wireless internet hookup and networking.

              The only reason this isn't a 5-star rating - the screen is reflective enough that daytime viewing and nighttime light reflections are an issue. But this is the nature of plasma - no alternative if you want the plasma. But - I would absolutely buy this again.

              Great TV with great picture quality. The only thing is that the screen is so reflective that you can see reflections of lamps and lighting fixtures in the room while watching TV, especially in dark areas of the screen.

                    What a great value for the product you receive with this plasma TV. A real bang for the buck:1080p resolutionSamsungSmart TVBuilt-in WifiSlim profile..and with Samsung, you know you're getting one of the best picture qualities of any TV out todayNo sense in spending $2,000+ for a 60" when you get all the features and latest bells and whistles with this unit. Would definitely recommend this unit to my friends

                      We use this as a surround sound application. This TV has a great picture and is very easy to use.

                      The only con is the screen can reflect light because of the mirror surface. The spot we put the TV this is not a problem.

                            Good for Home Use.
                            Lack of buttons on Body of TV means cannot operate the TV if you loose the remote.
