This is cracking t.v at this price . I paid over £1200 about 18 months ago ( older version of course ) and that was a fair deal then , with 5 years cover . If they have sorted out the buzzing this unit was famous for and if you can still turn off the " Dnie " , which sucks , then this should be brilliant telly . Don't try to move this t.v with your missus as a labourer as marital bliss will be affected in a bad way .It weghts as much as a small moon . Get a proper heavy duty wall mount and enjoy . HOT.

if this is the one for £1000 in tesco
it has a very good picture
i was looking at it the other day

things huge as well

this is in the series 4 range, which is the entry level that samsung produce for their 2008 range.
for 50 " its a good deal, just dont expect amazing pictures compared to other 50" tvs out there,
pay another 120 quid and get yourself the LG50PG6000. Far better telly and has a host of great reviews behind it!

Agreed reviews are good but would never by an LG, sent two back after only a few weeks each I wouldn't worry too much about the resolution on thisone unless you are going to be feeding it hd sources most of the time either.

Remember the differences between plasma and LCD. For plasmas Samsung only produce a series 4 and 5. In LCD Samsung produce a 4, 5, and 6 series.

The only thing the 5 series plasma has over the 4 is full HD 1080p, a slightly better brightness level of 1500 compared to 1300 of the series 4 and movie plus technology. Also, don't all jump on the 1080p bandwagon again please. Anybody that knows anything about TV's knows that the difference isn't as noticable as people make out unless you are very close to the TV, which being a 50 inch, you shouldn't be.

For those who want this TV in 42" inch Dixons have it at £535.10 + delivery. A much better bargain in my opinion.

great tv, got it delivered from dixons 10 days ago £666 after quidco, couldnt refuse that for a deal, price goes up and down a lot on this set, very happy with picture,sound isnt great but i use a home cinema system so all is well there

I have 50" Samsung plasma. I got mine around Xmas time. The picture quality is quite poor when watching standard sky due to the size, but you soon get used to it.

Once you watch a Blu-Ray though, the picture quality is amazing,, really bright and vivid, sound excellent, honestly it's so impressive.

Got a 50" Samsung Plasma about a year or so ago , has been perfect , Sky HD and my HD DVD's are brilliant on it ,
The speakers on these tv's are ok for normal stuff but you should really have a good surround sound set up for movies anyway ............and a big sub :thumbsup:

With a plasma screen this size - you can probably dump one of your radiators.

yes one of the advantages they dont tell you about, i turn off the radiator now in the living room -no need thanks to my samsung, another few pennies saved :)

Sounds good, but it doesn't tell you what version of HD it is. So I'm going to take it that it's not a 1080p. Also mentions nothing about a VGA, SVHS, or Component Input. :-/

On the original post it states Component Input.
Tempted by this especially with Quidco but i keep holding off and holding off as you can get a Panny 50" for about £800 which is also tempting.
Voted hot because these plasma tvs are coming down in price daily now - must resist

A word of warning, there's quite a few repeatedly reported problems with Samsung plasma TV's (check out the posts on the AVForums to read the plentiful disgrunteld owners views!) but if you're not fussy and can put up with the buzzing, poor picture display and bugs the TV has then so be it.

If you're after the best spec to price ratio 50" Plasma TV then the Panasonic TH50PZ80B is the one to go for and I say this after months of research, trade magazine reviews and viewing a plethora of them side by side in a home demo room! (but yes it does cost nearly £1400! so it's not a bargain, just a damn fine TV but the difference between the Samsung and the Panasonic is like the difference between night and day.

Not all of the Samsung TV owners are reporting these faults though. Its hit and miss.

Furthermore, the Panny you speak of is indeed better, but then its almost double the price, hence, it is no surprise that it happens to be a better than the Samsung talked about in this thread.

Its 720p. However, what matters is the image quality, not the specs.

I do agree though, at this screen size, 1080p does begin to show a slight difference.

I know it is a slightly different TV but I have had the Samsung PS50Q97HDX for a year now and only have a couple of very minor problems which are the most common for these TV's:
There is a buzzing noise (resistor noise I believe) when there is white (or very pale colour) on screen that covers about 70% or more of the picture.
Also, when watching a SD picture over scart, if, for example, someone is running across the picture and the background is wizzing past, it can cause a bit of fuzzy outline round the person.

Other than that I am very happy with it and to be honest, the above issues only happen for a few seconds usually before the picture changes and they do not happen with HDMI inputs (Sky HD, PS3, XBOX360 etc).

Neither of these slight issues would put me off having another one.
Sound is perfectly adequate, sure, if you want pumping bass run it through a home cinema system or something.
It gives an excellent picture on Sky SD and HD, much much better than my old LCD had.

How does it perform when using the inbuilt freeview tuner?

No buzzing on mine and a great picture :)

£773 + £70 delivery so it's 10% more but I'd go for it anyway. It's a fine TV by common consent while it looks gorgeous too.

I soooo want the 42" model but not sure it's worth the probable domestic disharmony caused by having a third plasma in the house:whistling:
