Wow.

The Samsung PS50C450 50” HD Ready Plasma TV is the ideal television set for the film buff, sports fan or avid gamer, as it uses 600Hz technology to ensure smooth, crisp action, and provides all the rich colour and amazing contrast you expect from a plasma.

Not only does the PS50C450 show off HD 720p content at its best, it uses mega dynamic contrast ratio to saturate each frame with dense cinematic colour and deep, solid blacks. Even when watching fast-paced action movies, sports matches or playing videogames, the motion will remain smooth and judder free, due to 10 subfields in each frame. This means a 600Hz display, silky smooth action, and crisp, sharp contours.

The PS50C450 offers breathtaking picture quality, with bold pure colours created by Samsung's Wide Colour Enhancer saturating each pixel until it achieves a rich and naturalistic colour and luminescence. This Samsung 720p high definition television also offers striking picture quality by utilising a clear image panel that uses a film filter instead of regular glass to eliminate layered images and produce crystal clear and blur free viewing from every angle.

Not only does the PS50C450 show off HD 720p content at its best, it will also upscale standard definition content to approaching HD quality. Even when watching fast-paced action movies, sports matches or playing video games, the motion will remain smooth and judder free, due to 10 subfields in each frame. This means a 600Hz display, silky smooth action, and crisp, sharp contours.

An incredible response time of just 0.0001ms between individual images means that you won't experience blur or ghosting, resulting in less eyestrain when you're watching for longer periods. This makes the Samsung PS50C450 50” HD Ready Plasma TV ideal for playing videogames, as does a dedicated games mode, which creates the optimum setting for console games, giving you an edge in everything you play.

'Not only does the PS50C450 show off Full HD 1080p content at its best, '

Taken from description so it may be able to do 1080p

With the money saved buy some speakers eh?

Good price, but wouldnt buy a 50" without 1080p. Im not 100% sure but would the resolution appear very blocky on such a large screen with such a low res if you were to use it with xbox/ps3/pc connectivity?

Samsung speakers are rubbish - but as previous poster suggests, with the money you save buy some speakers!

I have this TV. I've been very impressed with it so far. Looks great connected to Sky HD, my Xbox 360 and my PC. It was a replacement for a slightly smaller set that was written off - which was 1080p. From my sofa I can see absolutely no difference.

The only issue with this TV is image retention, which is pretty bad. But I just don't leave Sky HD paused for any length of time.

As for sound I have my sound coming through a Samsung home cinema system anyway.

It comes highly recommended from me!

Xbox and ps3 run predominantly in 720p apart from video playback...

And I'm sure pc would still look good...

utter rubbish.
heard other people say things like "you can SEE the pixels at this size"
actually go into a store and see for yourself.
people are just 1080p snobs and really know nothing about resolution, scaling etc
they just want to say they have the best but probs dont even HAVE a full HD source to put through a 1080p tv

I have this TV - It's generally shocking, image retention/screen burn is awful, really picks up anything (Don't watch things like news channels with the constant banners on otherwise you knackered). The screen had to be replaced after just under 1 year as it just lost all picture what so ever. 720p on a 50" Tv isn't great, especially playing the xbox (Unfortunately having a 50" TV with standard def freeview also means watching the sport is awful, but obviously if you have Sky HD that's not a prob) . Sound is shocking, I mean REALLY low... Also expensive to run - it eats power like I eat Oreo cookies... All this adds to the fact I am in the middle of replacing with a 42" LG 1080p with Freeview HD (Another thing it lacks). The only thing I like about Samsung products anymore is their look, that's about it...

Out of interest, which games did you play that can run native 1080p?

I would think that anyone purchasing a 50" T.V would have a cinema surround sound system to compliment it.

This 50" T.V is also, potentially, only £418 and at that price you can overlook the lack of 1080P and Freeview HD. Also screen burn-in is a problem that affects all plasma T.V's to some extent and isn't a problem solely associated with just this model.

great price and well worth a look at as all digital tv sources and game systems are as said before are truely 720p and any media system will scale down to match the panel without a problem great spot

I have ihis tv . fantastic picture ,nothing wrong with sound.plays media via usb port and can update firmware via usb.As for power consumption it only draws around 100 watts as i have tried on a power meter ,this is very low for a tv this size .hi def and normal standard def look fantastic ,far better than both my lcds.grab this.this was £799 in comet i got for £599.

Yeah - to be fair I know that this is a good price for the TV, and if that's what you have got then fair enough, i'd rather wait for something else if necessary, or pay more and get a Panasonic, and especially look for something with 1080p on such a big screen. With the screenburn, this is why i'm taking an LCD this time, check the difference because it's a pain in the backside.

from my experience, 97.7% of the UK wouldnt pay for better quality, they just want a **** off big TV for next to nothing. could be the worst quality in the world, but its big and cheap.

if 60" sets came down in price to around £750 for the absolute bottom of the range no features barely HD ready tat, they'd sell like you wouldnt believe!

theres only a small percentage will pay for quality over quantity

I worked it out at 93.567895%, so your talking s**t
