these plasmas are so cheap now, but should i get one of these or an LCD?

51" + 720p + 3D = Why?

Price is good, but the spec just confuses me.

Needs to be 1080p at that size

I agree. Surely every 42" + TV needs to be 1080P.

On my previous 720p 42" Plasma TV, Standard Freeview always looked good.

On my current 720p 50" Plasma TV, Freeview HD content (Only 4 Channels) & blu ray look great, however at this size Standard Freeview content starts to look poor.

Even if you had a full HD TV, Sky HD is only 720p and Freeview HD is 1080 interlaced, so you would only benefit having a Full HD TV with Blu Ray content Etc and not normal TV programmes IMO.

50" Plasma's due to their enlarged glass area also pick up a lot more reflections than my 42" set did.

Got Viera Connect on my Blu Ray Home Cinema and its a total waste of time, so dont get sucked into any smart TV hype unless it has iPlayer.

I would like a 46" Samsung D8000 next if they drop to £1000 at any time as the picture quality is fantastic from what i have seen.

Don't trust Robert Whyte!

Had a 36" CRT off them a few years back with a free five year warranty. Took delivery and never thought about a certificate of proof of free five year warranty (although I had retained hard copies of the webpage). Anyway, 2 years in and a problem ...... they denied free 5 year warranty was "given" with the TV and said I could have tampered with the screenprint! "Take us to the small claims court" was their only response.

Not as whyte as white then! Beware.

If the spec is not what you want then do not buy it.
Some TVs will be lower spec than others, if this were full HD then it would not be £500.

I'd be more worried by the fact it's a Samsung than the fact it's 720p.

My house was like a Samsung only mortuary for a while and was on first name terms with the Samsung engineer, so I'll not be buying one, but head added as it's cheap for what it is.

I always buy Samsung LCD, currently have 5 in use and just ordered a 55" and never any problems. Just what are you doing to yours??

I was playing with this set in Comet on Monday when it was £549.99 and it was pretty awful, even after taking some settings from AV Forums with me. Ghosting was awful, blacks were grey and the pic was poor. I got the assistant to link it up to the same Panasonic Blu-Ray player we have at home and took Avatar on DVD and 3D Blu-Ray and my old 720p Panasonic plasma from 2007 managed better. I was really disappointed. The glasses are only £29.99 per pair in Comet though.

I am trying hard to hold back for this year's LG passive 47" tv range to come out. I was really impressed with the current model, and with 4 kids (plus a regular influx of their friends) the £700 price tag is quickly recouped when £1 glasses are in use. My wife wont let me buy a Panasonic 3D plasma due to the cost of the glasses. Or at least that was the case until she caught site of the tx-p50vt30 and now she wants that one!

I'm really trying to not sound sarcastic here, but watching TV was the main use for them, occasionally hooked to a PC - I'm very careful with my things.

One particular 32" set had a new panel, new main board & tcon board, PSU and housing (at different times) the only original parts were the remote and power lead - I'm not joking.
I've got a dead 26" that needs a main board (constantly restarts itself in a loop) and another 32" that needs a backlight board.

That said, Samsung's after care is pretty good, they replaced the main board when it failed again 2 weeks out of warranty, but I'd rather not have the hassle of it going in the first place I'm afraid.

samsung plasmas have a problem with the screen sometimes cracking yes cracking samsung will refuse tol repair as they say its physical damage despite 100s of people saying the crack is internal just googe samsung plasma cracked screen

I agree we bought the 550 one of these in November (19th) January 18th a crack appeared on it with NO improper use from us. Partner was just watching the footie when the telly went off and the crack appeared. Having trouble getting them to believe we didnt do it. Would deffo avoid Samsung plasmas.
