The is a great TV for the $$$. It is not a smart TV with apps but why do I need that I have a roku, iTV and Blu-ray with apps. It also doesn't have many HDMI interfaces - I don't need that because it is connected to a receiver with HDMI switching.
What is does have is a GREAT picture at a great price. This is my first plasma TV and I have to say it does have a better image then my other Samsung LCD TV - that I really like too BTW. But the 47 inch LCD got punt to my bedroom and this 51 inch plasma is in my living room.
One of my best purchases I've made.
If you are looking for a plasma on a budget look no further. The only reason for the 4 on performance is because of the glare. I bought some blackout curtains and all is well now. Picture is better than any lcd I've ever owned.
Samsung Full HD 1080p displays picture quality that's crisp, clear, and breathtakingly life-like. The realistic detail of Full HD images invites you to enjoy a viewing experience that redifines reality.
Clear Image Panel
The clear image technology feature provides anti-reflection for a better viewing experience. The single layer panel structure eliminates the production of dual images and blurring, especially at off angle viewing.
Plasma +1 design means your Samsung Plasma TV has a reduced bezel design that allows for a larger viewing area without having to increase the TV's outside dimensions. Plasma +1 TVs also feature a sophisticated slim depth design. This design approach makes the TVs look lighter and less bulky.
