Also, I'm up in the air on the old "Plasma vs LCD/LED", specially when considering 3D. The main argument against a Plasma TV is the amount of light in my TV room. Right now with my Sammy, it has a matte screen and light reflection has never been a problem.
I will say this though, I was at first totally against buying a 3DTV, but now I've learned that 3DTVs have been noted for their great 2D PQ, and since CE manufacturers seem to be slowly fading away the 2D only TVs, it just seems the next progression. Rather 3DTV flourishes or not, great 2D PQ is always something to want.
I would say...first off
IMO..you should cite the fact that you have not viewed a 3D television in your own viewing environment when you offer your opinion
Its helps us put some relativity to the matter
I had a Sammy 40A750..that I recently sold at my neighborhood garage sale. I had a for a few years and it had a nice picture
But I will say this..while it was the second in the line of Samsungs back then( the 860 series being the top of the line)...there has been a lot of improvement since then..just staying withing the Samsung line
Their LED's of today would put my old 750 series, from back then ,to shame..in 2D
No where even close to black level, motion control, or features
I am comparing old 750 series to today's D7000 series LED
The old stories about plasma don't really hold as much water today
They are much better in lighted conditions.
Even Samsung's LCD( from years back) above your 550 series TV had the Ultra clear panel...something they still use with its reflective screen
It can be extremely reflective...so sunny rooms can be an issue with many LCD/LEDs as well
As far as 3D capability meaning a better 2D TV
Not so much anymore...most mid line TV's today are 3D capable. LG makes several that have mid level picture quality at best..but are 3D capable
The best 2D TV's are 3D capable...but 3D capability is not exclusive to high end sets anymore
