  1. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    I’m working with a budget of about $500-$600. I’m usually sitting about 6-8 feet away from my current television, a Samsung Series 4050 32” 720p television. I’m going to be using my new television for like 80% gaming, 20% Netflix. If it makes a difference, I don’t really ever play anything...

    I am considering upgrading my Panasonic TH-37PWD8UK which I have been extremely happy with. I purchased it in 2005 after researching very carefully here. I am still amazed with the picture quality. I had the 37 because it fit precisely into a recessed opening in the river rock wall/mantle in...

    My topic pretty much says it all. I am debating between the 2 sets currently. I will use my PC for Movies, Xbox One, PS4, HTPC and Cable. I'm not sure where the future of 3d is heading and I'm curious if anyone feels that 3D is worth the additional $200? Thank you.

     I'm finally looking to move from CRT to HDTV.  I watch quite a few downloaded AVI, MP4, and MKV files; usually 780 or 1080 compressed torrent files.  They look fine on my Sony 32 inch CRT tv, but I'm concerned they may look very pixelated or unwatchable on something new.   Questions:   1...

    This thread is related to the one about rising black levels on the F5300/F5350. I know that LCD TVs only have a few printed circuit boards (PCBs) in the back of the TV: stuff like the main board, power board, and t-con board. I have heard that Plasma TVs have many more. My question is exactly...

    does anyone know if the WM xtend warranties cover the crack screen probs that plasmas sometimes get??

     I'm seeking to find a 50" HDTV with good picture quality. 3D is a non-issue for me, and I am ambivalent about Smart apps (I'll add an Apple TV or Roku). Picture quality is most important.   We sit 8-9 feet from the television, have four medium-sized windows with blinds in the room. Lighting...

    I'm in the market for a new TV to replace our quite old and smallish Samsung 25" CRT and have narrowed the choice down to these two Samsungs. I've read glowing reports about the PN51F4500 and almost bought one today. My hesitation is its 720p resolution. I realize that the resolution spec isn't...

     First, thanks for all the great info found on this forum. I've never had anything other than a CRT television, and my wife and I are looking to replace our small 25" Samsung with an HDTV. In researching, the almost universal message is that better picture quality for less money can be found...

     Hi.  I picked up a Samsung PN51F5300 just after Christmas.  I loved it the first two weeks, it produces a gorgeous image with perfect colors    Unfortunately, over the past week the audio has been consistently going out of sync after an undetermined amount of time, maybe 30 minutes or so...
  11. Display Calibration
    I am doing my first cal on the Samsung PN51F5300, which I got yesterday. I'm in Movie mode, and the 2-pt controls (RGB gains) won't affect anything past 60% stim. I tried lowering Contrast from the default 95 (in various increments, all the way to 75 and while the picture got dimmer, it had no...

    What's are the main differences between these two aside from Smart features and 3D? I'm only considering about stuff related to watching movies/tv shows and playing video games (picture quality, input lag, etc.)

     Alright guys I have a recommend me a tv question. (sorry). I was looking at getting the LG 60PN5000 but I'm not quite sure of the quality of it. I'm also thinking about the Samsung 51" F5300. It's about the same price ($649) but it is smaller. However, I'm guessing it's a little better quality...

     I have been considering upgrading to a 50" TV. So far I have narrowed it down to the Panasonic 50" TC-P50S60 for $699 or the Samsung 51" PN51F5300AFXZA for $649. So I guess the biggest question is: is the Panasonic worth the extra $50 and loss of an extra inch of size? From what I've read the...

     I just bought this new model about a week ago because I was told that plasmas have little to no motion blur. With this particular tv I can say that that is completely untrue. I actually had bought a Toshiba 39l1350u LED before this tv ad both the tvs are about equal in terms of motion blur. In...

     Hi.  This is my first post in these forums.  I could be misplacing this topic because I don't know what's wrong with my system.   Anyway, here is it.  I just bought a Samsung 51" TV.  It's a Plasma . . . PN51F5300.  I like it!   I also just bought a new amplifier / recevier.  It's a Yamaha...

    Update 12-3-13: Updated the Color Space values below to improve the color gamut even further To be fair, here is a list of the pros and cons that has been gathered regarding this set: Pros: Extremely accurate picture for the price. I'm very impressed with the accuracy, to the point that it...

    Hello all, I was hoping to get some input from the knowledgeable posters on this forum. I'm purchasing a new TV for my parents as a gift for Christmas. I'm heavily biased towards plasma and pretty much hate the clouding, motion issues, etc. that I've had with them in the past. However...

    I have a tough sub-$500 dilemma... I am looking for a 50" (or 51") tv for the bedroom (wall mount on an inside wall in a room with small windows that are always covered by shades.) There is almost no sunlight in the room, ever. The lighting is mostly ceiling recessed lighting, and about half of...
