I was also wondering since I have a PS3 and don't really need a smart TV, should I instead look at the U50 instead of the UT50 and still keep the Samsung in the running?
Yeah, also the UT50 is going to give you 3D, the U50 is not.
If you're going to be gaming a lot, I've read many comments on here that plasma might not be for you, because of the IR/BI from the HUD's on the games. Have you looked at LED's?
Not trying to steer you away from plasma understand, just trying to recommend alternatives perhaps.
Also, there are comments from plasma owners that IR/BI is not a problem when playing games. It appears that some panels are more susceptible to IR/BI than others.
Are you going to get the TV local? Like BB? They have a good return policy, so maybe try out the U50 for 20-25 days and see how you like it. If no issues, then keep it and enjoy. If you experience any issues, return it and try the Samsung.
Just gotta dive in and now is a good time, since the new models are on the horizon and retailers are trying to make room.
