I purchased this set to replace a Panasonic 50" plasma tv. I thought it would be exactly the same size I was very wrong is has only about 72% the area of the Panasonic, about the same width but over a foot shorter in depth. The Samsung is a fine tv and I like it very much but If I had known I would have measured one in a store and would have bought a larger model which would have filled the gap the Panasonic left. So take heed not all 50 inch TV are the same size. .
