  • A. Plasma, LCD and LED TVs provide an excellent HD picture, offer stunning arrays of colors, and of course, Samsung’s exclusive technologies which allow you to get the most out of either panel. LCD traditionally uses a CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) backlighting system that runs across the rear internal portion of the unit to illuminate the LCD panel from behind. Samsung’s LED Televisions use an LCD panel that is back-lit or edge-lit by LEDs. LED TVs usually enjoy the highest energy efficiency while producing very high contrast ratios and smooth motion from a slim design. -MrSamsung Plasma Televisions operate using a combination of gas and glass to illuminate the individual pixels, or light sections, within the screen. Plasma panels allow for an expanded viewing angle over LCD, and has a response time as fast as .001ms. All of the Samsung Plasma units have a feature called Screen Burn Protection, which helps reduce the effects of static images and provide a quality image for the life of the panel. Both Conventional LCD and LED Televisions offer a great picture without image-retention and smooth image motion using the Auto Motion Plus processing, with the LED TVs offering better energy efficiency and a slimmer design. Plasma Televisions offer faster response times, as well as appeals to customers replacing a tube television with a glass screen they are familiar and comfortable with. And, due to advances in technology, both plasma and LCD panels can work well even in the brightest rooms.

I bought a Samsung Plasma on Black Friday(less than 5 months ago) and it already has permanent burn in. I was super cautious with this also, 200 hours break in, never used black boxes, change channel randomly during commercials. Samsung does not cover burn in on their warranty for Plasmas. I was told by 3 different represenatives that I should not watch ESPN anymore "change my viewing habits". From what I am told ESPN, CNN, Weather Channel, and video games are not a good idea with plasma televisions. Any TV station with a ticker at the bottom basically can cause burn in. I'm not trying to say this is a persistent problem, but that it can happen and if it does Samsung will leave you out to dry. I enjoy being able to freely watch whatever progaming I want to watch so I will never purchase a plasma tv again, and am sceptical of Samsung in general now. Outside the burnin the TV had a great picture and sound. My only other complaint would be the glass front really reflects light and isn't a great TV for a main room with windows or lamps if your really picky. Also would like to note that even if you purchase the extended warranty with Walmart you will not be covered since Samsung itself does not cover burn in with their warranty.

I really like my new tv. For the money it's one of the best Tv's out there right now. I had a 50 inch hitachi and although it was a good tv it's not even close on picture quality, colors, and just overall tv watching experience. The only problem I have with my purchase is that my old flat screen had the exact same screen size as my new Samsung but due to the sleek design of the Samsung (which does look awesome) it makes the tv actually look smaller than my previous tv. Not a big big deal but it doesn't look like it goes as well with my entertainment center but I'm sure it will grow on me.

This Plasma has excellent cinema picture quality and sound. Blue ray dvds look unreal when played with Samsung 4500 home theather.

I upgraded from the smaller 42" 720p D450 Samsung plasma to this larger 51" 1080p E530. This larger 1080p TV has meet all of my expectations. I selected the "standard" picture setting with black tone set to "Darkest" and picture is verygood. I selected the SRS TruSurround HD option for best sound. This is a very attractive TV with slim outer bezel. IMO these Samsung TV's are the best looking plasma TV's

i absolutely love this TV. Im a gamer and its the perfect size to see it from any part of my room. The only thing i don't like about the TV is that it didn't have the PC port so i could hook my laptop on to it and stream movies from online

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

Like the product not too impressed with Walmart's site to store program. The package for this product showed signs of abuse: styrofoam crushed, box ripped, etc. I almost sent it back, but, figured I would try it and if it didn't work take it back for a refund. Don't know what the problem is with this program, but, this is the second product within a few weeks that I have had show up in battered condition. Not overly impressed with Walmart!
