Performance
Excelent value price to performace the value is excellent
Picture has good contrast ,color ,brightness,depth and detail
You can see wrinkes in white shirts ,fine hair detail accurate flesh tones ,cloud detail
natural looking grreen in landscape scenes does not crush blacks

720p is not an issue on this set at avarage viewing distance
Blue ray content is outstanding as for detail/color /contrast etc
HD performance via HDMI Dish Net DVR and PS3 are very good.
Comprable PQ to other similar price Plasma sets and brighter than some
Better PQ than most but the more expesive LCD/LED
I would reccomend this set but it is a discontinued 2011 model
It does have Samsung Boards and Panel inside .

Good black level and high brightnes works fine in
daylit room as with most plasmas reflections can
be visible so placement with thet in mind is advisable.
not as bright as the brighter LCD/LED sets
but very bright as plasmas go

I would reccomend this set but it is a discontinued 2011 model
It does have Samsung Boards and Panel inside .
