I can only compare it to previous purchases and experiences: first is a 4 year old LG LCD (720p), the second a Sony EX710 (EX712 in the UK) purchased in December '10 LED and swiftly returned due to severe back-light uneveness which lead to clouding / 'mura' effect and flash-lighting (clearly visible angular light beams protruding inwards all four edges), then a third - a Samsung C6500 LED in Jan '11, also returned for the same reasons. I am fanatical about watching television in an environment as dark as possible. As close to a cinema as I can get and the white patches / clouding on both displays just drove me nuts. The latter 2 were full HD displays and not cheap by any means - I expected far better. After reading a review of the D8000 LED and the awful clouding even in that unit, I've deducted it's more a by-product of the technology itself: edge lit / thin bevel.
The plasma has better black levels than all of these LCD/LED's. They're not pitch black but certainly acceptable and allow for the image to have plenty of contrast, detail and vivid colours (although I calibrated my display to look as natural as possible, dialing into 'movie' mode immediately - the default setting itself is actually fairly natural and accurate without tweaking required).
The +1" is certainly a benefit and cosmetically a large improvement. I found the C series plasmas (4 to 6 series) to have bevels far too thick which made them unattractive to look at.Read more ›
Watching normal def SKY (I cancelled my HD pack a while ago) it looks fantastic with the SKY HD box set to output at 720p. Blurays look awesome on it, XBOX 360 and PS3 also look amazing with nice smooth judder/blur free images even when scrolling or panning fast and no noticeable input lag.
Cartoons look amazingly vivid and bright, blacks look black with amazing depth to scenes. I havent noticed any fluctuating brightness or darkness that some people have mentioned in dark/black scenes.
Only downers that I've noticed (hence 4 stars) are that the glass screen is really reflective (much more than the panny I tried which I believe had a filter to reduce this), and when using my Wii over component connection and set to 420p HDTV mode there are fuzzy horizontal across the screen every few cms but it's still playable. This goes away with 50Hz 576i mode or via standard AV cable, but then obviously doesnt look as good.
Overall though the TV looks amazing (even when switched off due to the size and thin bezel) and even the sound from inbuilt speakers is more than adequate for a small/medium size living room (set to movie mode). So to get 43" of beautiful plasma viewing for the price I paid I'm well chuffed and would recommend this set :)
I read a lot of reviews from various independent website to get a good all round opinion of this product and glad I did. This is the best television I have owned to date.
The USB connection I find partially useful, plugging in my 1TB hard drive the plug n' play works with every format of video I have tried and the picture/sound loses nothing in the process.
I also use a media player (WD 1 TB) via HDMI to play video/music and it just bowls me over.
The only problem I have found after two weeks is the reflexion on the screen from any light source like windows etc.. I had to re-arrange the living room but it was worth it.
Would defiantly recommend to anyone - for this price! GREAT TELE!!!!!
Contacted samsung and they advised my warranty would be with amazon- so i am on here now looking about how to return the item after my 28 days period with not much joy :(
Looking on google there are lots of forums that are slating samsung for the common loud buzzing noises that come with their plasma TV's.
I wont be going for a samsung again.
