Samsung 42in HD Ready Plasma TV PS42Q97
In bright environments the display quality of conventional plasma TVs can be compromised by external light. Samsungs premium plasma TVs boast a combination of FilterBright, Super Black Panel and Optimal Light Filter to bring you sharp contrast, unbelievable detail and pure clarity in any lighting conditions.Natural True Colour
Samsungs advanced technology offers you truly natural onscreen colour representation. By keeping the colours balanced, even during fast moving or action scenes, your viewing enjoyment is never compromised. With Natural True Colour you can always enjoy vivid, realistic colours as nature intended.Real Detail
A combination of enhanced features means that you will never have to compromise on Real Detail again. Silhouette Editor refines the face tone and shape of an image. Smart Frame Plus eliminates flickering and Movie Mode provides smoother motion during the fast moving scenes.Real Motion Studio
Real Motion Studio combines three patented features including Movie Mode and Silhouette Editor so that you can make the most out of your TV. This advanced technology means that you can enjoy fast moving, action scenes without the worry of motion blur, juddering or image distortion. Why compromise when you dont have to?Movie Mode
Movie Mode eliminates the unwanted effect of motion judder by intelligently estimating the position of a moving object and creating additional frames based on that estimate. These frames are then interpolated in order to create smooth motion during fast moving or action scenes.Silhouette Editor
Silhouette Editor ensures that the tone and shape of an image remain sharp. During fast moving scenes, noises or contour lines can become distorted due to the delayed time reaction between the bright and dark areas. Silhouette Editor estimates the movement, detects the contour and adjusts the tone accordingly.
Top Customer Reviews
Excellent picture quality (with slight adjustments to the colour), there are more than enough connection points for my DVD, xbox, Sky and then anything else I want and it's so easy to set-up how you want.
The only let down for me - and this is something I hate and can notice easily - is the sound quality. Compared to a Toshiba 32WLT66s unit I am constantly having to change the preset equaliser settings to remove the horrible tinny or -ve feedback from the speakers. Feature wise this unit lacks against the Toshiba and could do with more settings/better quality.
Picture in picture only works with analogue and component/AV1/AV2 inputs - so if you thought about watching digital TV with sky at the same time, forget it.
Setup was easy - plugged it in, switched on and within 5 minutes, 4 clicks of the remote the unit was up and running.
I wish that the unit sounded better - I'm going to invest in a top end home cinema unit now that will compensate for the overall excellent unit.
The picture is superb, even if you are close or are looking from the side.
SOUNDS NOT TO BAD, HAVNT REALY HAD A CHANCE TO CHECK IT OUT COZ OF SURROUND KIT
I REJECTED A 1080P TOSHIBA LCD FOR THE SAME MONEY AND GOT THIS INSTEAD!!
EXCELLENT ALL ROUNDER
Superb picture, better than a Friend's Panasonic 1080p (which cost 2k more). Good sound (for a flat panel tv). I cannot recommend this highly enough.
One warning though, Plasmas may be very good but they also run very hot (and use a lot of electricity). You could think of it as a Stonking TV with an electric heater thrown in.

Great TV but found out after purchasing that Plasma TV's cost a 3rd more electricity to run, ouch. Not good for the budget. Excellent picture though.Published on 16 Aug. 2013 by Reba
