  1. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    I am new to the Plasma scene but I have had a Samsung PN51E5500. I've heard that keeping the contrast low (around 50's), for the first 300ish hours can help prevent IR and burn in. Once you past the break in phase can you turn the contrast up as high as you want without the fear of problems...

    I have the e550 and tried the hack but can't change the model only the type in service menu option. Tried changing the type to all the different 51" choices and could not unlock 10pt, but now can't remember what type it was originally. Does anyone know what type should be set on for a...
  3. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    I have the Samsung PN51E550 and I use the screen fit option in regards to picture size. Pixel shift isn't available in screen fit because it is at a 1:1 ratio. I am wondering does screen fit cause more IR and Burn in Problems since you can't utilize pixel shift? TIA

    I'm looking for a budget TV... I honestly don't care too much about a SMART TV since I have an HTPC connected directly to my TV and I just want a nice picture and under $700. I'm looking at either the 2012 model PN51E550 (refurb) or a 2013 model PN51F5300A. I've never bought a refurb TV...
  5. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    Hey everyone, so I've noticed something a little funky about my set... Whenever I use 3D, depending on the scene, the picture tends to shift from natural color to everything having a blue/green tint, and then back again. It's kinda similar to having Dynamic Contrast enabled, except that option...

    Hello AVS community. I hate to make a new thread for this but I am stumped. I have a pn51e550 display that I used to connect via wifi to my router but then I switched my ISP and used a direct ethernet connection to it in roughly July. I now have moved and need to connect to a different router...

    The price is the same as every other retailer, $849, but they have 0% for 12 months, same as cash deal going. I decided to go that route as they report to the 3 bureaus. If you're trying to rebuild your credit, might be a good route. I've heard horror stories about them, and I fully intend to...
  8. 3D Displays
    So I've decided to pick up a new 3D TV and I'm considering various options. Still undecided on plasma vs led, would like some opinions on which is better for 3D gaming. Also wondering how important checkerboard support is. I see now where that has been added into 3DTV Play, but its not easy...

    Hey everyone, I have the Samsung PN51E550, and my firmware version is 1020.1. Recently, Smart Hub updated and gave me the Amazon Instant Video app, as well as the SyncPlus app. Whenever I try to run both, I am thrown a message telling me that my firmware needs to be updated in order to use...

    I am a newby ... forgive the basic question. I just purchased the Samsung PN51E550 and I am very pleased with it. My question is: Why does my source information reflect HDMI1/DV1, 720x480p/60p? I was expecting 1080p. Thanks.
  11. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    Hi, I have my eye on the Samsung PN51E550 but I have not found a backside view of this TV. I want to take a look at all the input at output ports available on this TV. It would be really nice if someone could point me to a backside picture (where the ports are right?) of this TV. A 360 view...

    The Samsung PN51E550 has been in the $847-$849 price range for several weeks now at major retailers such as HHG and BB. One of the better bang for the buck deals out there to consider, along with the Panasonic 50UT50 in that price range. Smart TV, 3D, and 1080p specs similar to the upper level...

    In the process of buying a new display will be used 75% gaming 25% film based content. Although internet features are an added bonus they do not sway my decision as far as feature set are concerned. I have narrowed down my choices to the following sets: Samsung PN51E550/E6500, Panasonic...
  15. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    I am looking at either getting the PN51D6500 or the PN51E550. They looked like they had the same basic architecture, but the E550 is the newer model. I went to the AV store this afternoon, and one of the salesmen told me that the D6500 was hands down the better unit. They are about the same...

    I just ordered the subject TV from Amazon with a delivery date of Wednesday and I have a couple simple questions. How high is the TV when using the included stand? I'm trying to figure out if I can use my old B&W center channel or if I need to be looking at sound bars. Also, does the TV...

    Hi guys first time poster here. I've searched the forums and I saw a thread about unlocking and calibrating the Samsung PNXXD550 to the 8000 model for calibration settings. And I was wondering if anyone has done the same with the PNXXE550's. If anyone has any advice on this I would appreciate a...

    For within dollars of the same price which is the better TV. 3D performance is important to me, because I really enjoy 3D movies. The fact that the Samsung comes with 2 pairs of glasses is nice, but since you can get Samsung's universal glasses for $20 a pair now, its not a deal breaker that...

    Good Afternoon All, I purchased the PN51E550 several weeks ago, and I have a question regarding watching hockey games, on this particular model. I have the TV set on vivid mode, as I like it to bright, and crisp. However, when watching hockey games the brightness seems to fluctuate when the...

    So i'm going to get a new Plasma before the end of the week and these are the two I have narrowed it down to TC-P50UT50 or PN51E550. I'm having a real hard time choosing. I would say the number one thing i'm looking for is picture quality for gaming. Picture quality comes in many facets...
