My dilemma PB6650 or PN51F5300?

The PB6650 has worse black levels but is a 60 inch and costs $599 the Samsung has superior black levels but is only a 51 inch and costs $549. Screen size or black levels what would you do? Price doesn't really matter since both are nearly the same.

I would go with the 51F5300 (as I did). It's a nice display and the contrast/blacks will be far better than the LG. LG's tend to have more issues with IR as well.

I have the 60PB6600 and it's awesome. Only difference is the 6650 has built in wifi instead of the dongle included with the 6600.

Easily the LG in this case.

I feel if I get the 51 Sammy that I will regret not going with the 60. Samsung has slightly deeper blacks but LG Plasmas on cnet say they have superior shadow detail and 2014 plasmas should be no different.

Haven't owned any Samsung plasmas yet, but that 'superior shadow detail' on LG only flourishes with decent black level. My previous LG plasma had terrible black level. Only with a black mod did the overall PQ shot through the roof and I was finally able to see the so called 'great shadow detail' on the LG. Televisioninfo says the 2014 LG plasmas has contrast ratio lower than the 300:1, so I would be wary. I would only get that LG if it can still be modded for better black. I was satisfied with the LG's motion resolution though, and no, I did not have ANY IRs whatsoever on my LG (I tried very hard) so YMMV.
