Full HD 1080PAnyone can say they have the clearest picture, but only Full HD 1080p has twice the detail and twice the resolution of regular HDTV. It delivers dazzlingly, rich colour and vivid details, and even corrects the errors from standard definition content. It's definitely not your father's HD.
All Share keeps you connectedSamsung HDTV takes the struggle out of sharing your talent with the world, or at least with your family. Transfer your videos, music and photos from your PC or mobile device, wirelessly and effortlessly. It even connects with multiple PCs. Who said you need connections to get on TV?
Connect Share MovieThere’s no excuse anymore for leaving all those great digital pictures and videos in your cameras. All you need with the Samsung HDTV is a USB connection cord. Just plug it in then instantly play. It even works for your music collection, so now anytime is showtime.
600Hz subfiled motionEver notice how with plasma screens, motions can get a little jerky? Unless you happen to be looking at one of Samsung's new plasma TVs. Every frame is seamlessly smooth because we put 10 full subfields into each frame. That's 600Hz. So contours are crisper, scrolling text sharper and the juddering issue is finally put to rest.
Every angle is right with Clear Image PanelAmazing picture quality can’t exist with blurring on your screen. That’s why we developed Clear Image Panel for our new plasma TVs. It uses a film filter instead of conventional glass to eliminate layered images and produce ones that are ultra-clear and blur-free from almost every angle.
More real than reality with HyperReal Engine
Your mind won’t believe your eyes. That’s how breathtakingly stunning the picture quality you get with Samsung’s HyperReal engine is. Enabled by Super 3C Realization, the picture is as unrivalled as it is unbelievable. This way, you’re never just watching a movie, you’re living it. Every moment will ring truer, go deeper, feel stronger, look richer. Hard to believe when you’re on your couch.
Mega Dynamic Contrast (PDP)
Getting a true cinematic experience used to mean going to the cinema. But with Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio true cinematic clarity comes to plasmas. Every frame is saturated with dense, rich colour. Blacks have more depth and the whites are unbelievably pristine. The only thing missing is a large head blocking your view.
Response Time 0.0001ms
It's hard to beat the speed of light. That's how fast our plasma screens respond to each new image. 0.001 ms is all it takes for each pixel to re-generate clear, crisp, robust colors. That's why there's no blur or ghosting in the picture. And there's less strain on your eyes. You can't beat that.
This TV doesn’t settle for less than perfectA picture that’s smooth and clear doesn’t always magically appear. That’s why many of our latest HDTVs are equipped with a digital noise filter. When you have a less-than-perfect picture in a poor reception area, this filter reduces the analog noise created during transmission, reproducing clear images, sharp details, and bringing images back to their original beauty.
Wide Colour Enhancer
Capturing nature is the goal of an artist. We've achieved it as well with our Wide Colour Enhancer. Our unique 3D colour stretching technology saturates each pixel until it achieves the true colour and luminescence intended by nature. So every colour on the RGB spectrum is brought to life. It is a work of art.

Crystal TV™ designSamsung Crystal TV refers to subtle changes in the product's design. The beauty of nature lies in its ever-changing form, colour and light. New materials offer a never-seen-before TV that captures the essence of natural beauty through natural light, styles and tones which constantly appear to change with the viewing angle. Samsung Crystal TV bezel is not made up solely of one colour pigment, it is a sophisticated combination of multiple colours which produces a seamless, natural gradation.
Light controlling, energy savingSamsung HDTVs are easy on the planet — and on your eyes. Our unique Eco Sensor measures the intensity of the room’s light and automatically calibrates the brightness of the image on the screen. In a brightly lit environment, the picture brightness grows even brighter, and in dim surroundings, brightness is reduced. So now you’re not wasting energy on a bright screen when it isn’t needed. Enjoy the best picture possible with a TV that’s aware of its surroundings.

The picture quality is fantastic, i tinkered with the settings because the factory dynamic setting was just a little too harsh on the eyes and the standard setting was a little dark, tinkering with the settings was very simple / straight forward and done quickly, the darks are perfect and soo very dark.
The colours are great and the whites are really white.
Weather you watch this in full HD or on a standard broadcast channel you will love the picture and sound Quality.
There is absoluty no motion blurr on this tv ( I tested with some action movies and ps3 games)
I also did a firmware upgrade via a usb stick that i downloaded from samsung, dont know what the upgrade was for but it went through easily.
Ive got a virgin media HD V+ box plugged in, a ps3 and a samsung HT-C453 5.1Ch Home Cinema System all pluggd in with HDMI leads and an optical lead from the V+ box to the surround sound for the ultimate experience, I also got myself a 1TB external hard drive for music / pictures and movies and plugged into the tv via USB pord and it finds the files and plays without any problems.
The tv design itself is in a word STUNNING, lovelly clear display that looks glass like but is not.
The outside edge of the tv is black with a glass covering.
There have been reports or rumours from some people about this tv having a loud buzzing noise, well I have run the tv when the house is totally quiet and even turned the sound off, I heared no buzzing, but if you put your ear right upto the screen you can hear a very soft buzz like a flourescent bulb would make, my hearing is in very good order and you seriously would have to have your ear about 2mm from the screen to hear the tiniest of buzzing.
Overall this is the mother of plasma tv's and you will not be dissapointed if you lay out your hard earned pennies for this.
Its very good quality and a very sexy sleek tv.
Go on buy it, you know you want it.
Picture quality is stunning especially in hd or blu ray. Sound is good and the design of this t.v is also very good. So most boxs ticked then. However there is one major design fault with this tv is the constant buzzing noise coming form the back of the set. This gets worse after long periods of watching and gets worse if you change picture modes i.e going from standard to movie or to dynamic (being the worse one). You may think (like i did) you can drown the buzz out by increasing the volume on the set. This will work to an extent, until there is a pause in the sound on what you may be watching then it is right there annoying the hell out of you! So a good idea then would be to watch things that have audio pumping out the speakers non stop to drown the buzz out. Say for instance just play vidio games on it. But this just leads me onto my second beef about this product. The image retention or ghosting or burn in (call it what you want).
This being a plasma screen it suffers from this problem (and quiet badly as well) but then all plasmas do. So be carful how long you play games on it for. I have been informed however that this only happerns when the sets are new and it wont be as bad say after 100 hours of viewing (but it wont complety be burn in free). Also there are tools on the tv to help rid the screen of ghosting and these do work. So that is more of an annoyance then a major problem and one that gets better over time, unlike the buzzing noise which is very mutch a permanant fixture on this.
I have read alot of reviews about this, some with same problem as me and others saying there is no buzz problem. Maybe they are lucky ones who got one with out this problem but i think its a design fault (hence the cheap price) and not an individual fault on the set i had as i did return this set and ordered another from a different retailer and that set had exactly the same problem.
I guess everyone is diffent on what they can put up with and what they want out of a t.v. Like i said before the picture is stunning on this and the price is really good but after thinking long and hard i decided i could not put up with this constant buzzing noise as its a problem that simply wont go away.
