The Samsung PS42c450 offers top plasma TV quality at a bargain price.


When it comes to response time and dynamic colour, it's very hard to beat a plasma TV. The Samsung PS42c450 demonstrates all that is great about plasma TVs. With a response time of just 0.0001m/s, the PS42c450 is ideal for fast moving sports events. Thanks to the Clear Image Panel, this Samsung plasma TV is also clearer than many in its class. Instead of glass, it uses a film filter that reduces glare and blur from the picture. Mega Dynamic Contrast ratio ensures that subtle detail is carefully recreated, with even the darkest images being skilfully resolved. This Samsung plasma TV also makes use of 600Hz sub-field scanning. This picture processing system reduces motion blur and gives crisper contours, sharper text and less judder. Samsung have an excellent reputation for the quality of their plasma displays and the PS42c450 is no exception. Rich colour, smooth motion and excellent levels of detail - the PS42c450 has got the lot.

When the picture is as involving as this we'd strongly recommend a separate sound system to match. As standard the PS42c450 provides 2 x 10 watts and a brace of Dolby sound processors. The new Dolby Pulse system makes the PS42c450 ready for the next generation of broadcasts. Dolby Pulse will offer better sound quality from typical TV programs. Dolby Digital Plus processing is also on hand to get the best from the latest block buster films.

When it comes to connecting the PS42c450 up to the rest of your home cinema, this 42 inch plasma has got all the basics covered. Three HDMI sockets for digital sources are matched by SCART, component and composite for analogue. There's a handy USB socket for connecting up your mobile device, such as digital camera and a PC input for big screen gaming or web surfing.

It may offer fantastic value for money, but the PS42c450 certainly doesn't look cheap in terms of style. With its piano gloss black finish, accented by a slim frame and rose tinted lip, the PS42c450 looks like a more expensive TV. This quality of finish is carried through to the glass pedestal stand.

Great price for a nice big branded tv.

The 720 haters show their ignorance.

For once horacevankhute you aren't promoting Sony.

Each product has a place in the market and each person has a different need, not everyone needs DNLA, 1080p Whistles and horns. My Grandad, regardless of his massive wealth, wouldn't need half the stuff you claim to be the bees knees. If it's a deal it's a deal.

from what info ive gathered,gamers, love plasma due to response time, plasma tend to have superior colours, blacks etc,hence y movie buff love them.
although, there still an issue with screen retention, although issue been addressed over yrs, its still possible, saying that, the new pannys seem to have sorted it

quoted from HDTVtest
There is another issue especially relevant to gaming on Plasma TVs, and that is the issue of image retention. Image retention is a phenomenon related to phosphor-based display technologies, where “shadows” of static images persist on screen, even after the video signal containing them is no longer being displayed. Video games often feature static score counters and on-screen graphics which can highlight this issue on some PDP TVs
Fortunately, the Panasonic TX-P50S20B is almost entirely resistant to it. Only once did some on-screen text persist, and even then, it was visible only for about 70 seconds, and only on a completely black video signal. As a result, image retention on this Plasma display is effectively a non-issue


even with slightest chance, still sort of puts me off plasmas for now

Obviously you get what you pay for to some extent. But generally if your more of a gamer get an LCD, if you like movies and hd sports get a plasma.

Screen burn and lifetime concerns over plasma are a thing of the past, however they do use more electricity.

This is a review of the 50" version... do not assume that the 42" & 50" panels have identical properties.

I have 4 TVs in my house. 1 x 50 1x 42 1x40 1x37

I have both Plasma and LCD. I have never noticed much difference in them. There are expensive ones and cheaper ones, I have never noticed much difference in that respect either.

Buy what suits your pocket. You get a lot of differing opinions on here, a lot from people like some of those above claiming things aint good because of 720 or it's not an LCD or it's not full HD or its..........they are talking s hit. If it looks good to you and it's going to last ( not break down) and it fits your pocket, buy it.

I read alll the nonsense about the differences before I bought my first Flat screen TV and thought I had to take all this advice. Then I realised most of it is just s hit.

Power consumption is the only place now an LCD still beats a plasma. As you say, lifespan isn't am issue as plasmas typically now last longer an LCD's (100,000 hours against 80,000 hours) and screen burn is literally impossible to get. Retention can and more than likely will occur but with most plasmas it'll disappear within 5-10 minutes and isn't exactly noticeable anyway.

I'd also take plasmas above LCD for gaming too due to lower input response times and significant lower pixel response times.

I have 3 50" plasma tv's one Samsung one Panasonic and one LG. 2 Are 1080i and 1 1080p. I can see two of them from my hallway into each living room and can't see any difference between 1080i and 1080p.
From what I read online, 1080i on a 50" is similar to 720p on a 42".
For that reason, I will be telling my mother that this looks like a great buy. Especially as she has no need for a 50" or 3D.
Thanks OP.
Voted hot.

its a great price is plasma better picture than Lcd ??!! im after a large 40 inch or 42 inch TV thankyou for your help


There are some great Plasmas if your budget is >£650. In that price bracket I would have a Panasonic TXP42G30 over any LCD of similar price.

Under £500 however, there isn't even one Plasma on sale today with an 'Outstanding' or 'Highly Recommended' or 'Best Buy' Review at

If your budget is <£500 spend it on an LCD for best overall image quality. This may be subject to change if a new model like the Panasonic TXP42U30 gets reviewed... http://www.amazon.co.uk/Panasonic-TX-P42U30B-42-inch-Widescreen-Freeview/dp/B004OYVBTC/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1308836625&sr=1-2

What about weight? This model weighs a monster 25kg, compared to 14kg for a 42" LG LCD
