This tv i have to say i loved as it may not be FULL HD 1080P its mega contrast ratio delivers great picture and colour @ 1080I or 720p-.Plasmas are still in the game for 2 reasons 1=No motion blur which is when the balls lags when kicked with fast moving motion,Plasmas are 600 hertz sub-field so they show the pictures very smoothly a HUGE factor with HD.
2=18 bit colour leaves lcds 11bit in the dust with vibrant natural colours.
I have had many LCDS but this plasma at its great price was my favourite to date even a a non-plasma fan previously.
OVERALL= Bargain tv with samsung quality of the top end LEDs regarding colour and contrast richness with an HD picture source.
The remote does it all but its abit big.
It has a powersaving mode thus competing with lcds at around 170watts
also has a very good standby system.Freeview is also included and 3
hdmis keep you happily hooked up.
CONCLUSION=For the price range of £450-£600 this truly will suprise you in a good way by handling HD like a dream.
I bought this 42" Samsung TV for the student chill our area where I work - I got it for the very reasonable price of £497 from Amazon in September. I also got wall brackets to attach it to the wall, and it looks great - just the right size for the size of the room. The picture and sound is brilliant, and there is built in freeview which was easy enough to tune in - I haven't had any problems with the signal either.
I shopped around for a 42" plasma screen TV and this one was by far the best value at the time - I certainly wouldn't be willing to pay more than twice enough for other makes that have very similar specifications, and I have always found Samsung to be very reliable anyway. I am not particularly technically minded, but as far as I can tell it is a great picture, great sound and all of the freeview channels for a very reasonable price on a decent sized TV, so as far as I can tell it meets my specification perfectly!
