It's not to late but have you priced a 51" LCD? I could buy three of these 51" plasma's for the price of one LCD.

We have plasma's at work that display company news and our job schedules, they run 24/7 and have done so for years. Both have never given a problem. One is Vizio and one Sony. That's 8760 hours a year for years.

I would like an LCD but not right now.

The plasma is a 500 series here is an LCD in a 500 series.

Samsung's are good tv's but I'd opt for a lcd or led. Plasma's are ok if you're viewing from a distance but the closer you get the grainier the picture looks. Also if there are a lot of video games played they have a tendancy to burn into the screen.

We have a 50" Samsung Plasma that was a 2010 model and have had no issues (knock on wood). The only thing you may want to consider is if the room you are putting it in has a lot of natural light. You will get glare off the TV making it hard to watch unless you have some dark curtains.

Ours is actuary a 720 model and I can't tell that much difference unless I watch the same movie on Blue-ray some where else. When we get some extra money I plain on moving this TV into our basement and replacing it with a LCD/LED model.

^This. Since plasmas have a layer of glass over top of the screen they glare horribly.

But on the flip-side, if you have small children/the inclination to break things you can ruin an LCD screen pretty quickly. Just enough pressure on the screen will make dead pixels and the only way to fix it is to replace the whole screen

If you are going to watch bluray movies on it make sure it supports 1080P.

Samsung, LG and Panasonic Plasma screens are very nice, you can't rival their speed for sports or the depth of black on LCD or LED screens that cost three to four times as much.

They do use more power and they do get warmer than LCD or LED but it will take a long time for that electric bill to make up the difference in cost.

I have two 42" Panasonic Plasma sets and I love them. Had an LED LCD that I took back after 2 days because of the horrible motion blur.

I've never understood why one would now spend more for an LCD than a plasma. Plasma has a better picture and has overcome all the earlier "fears" like screen burn in and reflection issues. I am partial to panasonic plasmas, but I am sure the samsungs are nice too.

Which ever you get, I am sure you will love.

+1 and with the care and detail you take with photography I think plasma will give you results that you will be satisfied with.

I hope that made as much sense here as it did in my head as I typed it...

There's no such thing as 'LCD or LED'. They're all LCD. LEDs are for backlighting on LCD TVs, and are an alternative to fluorescent backlights.

You guys talking about big prices differences need to look again. I just did '50" lcd tv' and '50" plasma tv' on Amazon. Top few hits were basically even for both.

Both have weaknesses and strengths. Both have been improved.

I sit 9 ft from a 55" Toshiba LCD TV, with LED backlighting. Great color and blacks, no motion blur. No burn-in, no heat, no bulb to replace.

Bought the 51" Samsung plasma last night. Side by side the picture was outstanding compared to others. I'm happy and I had more than enough $$$ left over to buy a Wi-Fi Blu-Ray.


Yea the price is close on LED and plasma if you compare a high end plasma to a low end LED. Across the board features the LED is 3X the money I stood in front of them last night.

I have to disagree with you here. I was just in Best Buy an hour ago, I know the tv's are not properly tuned in the store, most are running much to hot, colors and contrast are not properly set, but I could see that the $1500 60" LED 'backlit' screens had flaring and artifacts that were not apparent on the $999 panasonic 60" plasma right next to it.

I still prefer plasma for the money. Glad you like your LCD TV.

The TV/DVD set up took about an hour the rest of the weekend was arranging the room around the TV. "WE" arranged it only to realize it doesn't work like this "WE" need to re-arrange it again and again. I'm wondering now why the old TV didn't work. "We" liked the the room before.
