3 Reviews for Samsung PN51D490 51" 3D Plasma TV (1366x768, HDTV, 3D)05/05/2011So let me start off by saying I rarely write reviews on here but I use them quite often when making a decision on whether or not to buy something. I bought this TV from Vann's, and it came with 2 pair of 3D glasses for free. Amazon use's Paul's TV as the primary seller and they are a very good company as well, so purchasing this TV through Amazon would have been my first choice, but Vann's had the better deal at the time.
My TV arrived via Fed Ex freight on April 21, and I immediately un boxed it and put it in my bedroom. This TV is replacing an Vizio 37" 1080P LCD which was working fine, but I really wanted a 3D set!
Initial Physical Impression was WOW. Very Sleek looking, much thinner than my Vizio, nice sturdy swiveling base, and has an almost Dark Cherry Touch of Color to it, which I was unaware of prior to purchasing but looks great with my Cherry Bedroom set.
Performance: I have the TV hooked up to a PS3 with the most current software (3D...06/07/2011What can I say - I am amazed and speechless !!
This bad boy is huge - massive. I spent 3 days in my local Best Buy comparing the HIGH end LED TV's and LCDs to this Plasma. And somehow could not pass the price point. I also did a lot of research on Plasma's before I pulled the trigger. AVS forum is a good place. This TV is supposed to consume relatively low power compared to older Plasma with bills of only 28$ / year. It may be a tad more than LCD and LED's but I am not ready to pay 500$ just to save 10$ in electricity bills every year. The final decision was the 3D, a 51 inch 3D for 750$ - was a steal. Cannot beat that price.
a. Beautiful Build, slim and elegant - much much better than any LCD I saw in store.
b. Glass stand, and solid glass construction - feels awesome....
c. Picture Quality - Outstanding
d. Though only 720p - I could not make out the difference between Full HD and 720p unless I think I stand very close to it. Played...07/05/2011Recieved this TV on April 26 directly from Samsung as a Replacement to a four year old DLP 3D 50" HLT series TV I had when it came out in 2007, all I had to do was caugh up $300 out of pocket, this TV is Great with both HiDef and Great with Standard def which cant be said of all HDTV's, I was comparing at J&R it to the 2011 Panansonics and this year I believe the 2011 Samsungs Plasma's blows the Pannys in their class out of the water!! The colors and the blacks just pop! I have a 7.1 surround system but this TV has pretty decent built in speakers much better than my old TV, I have not tried the 3D yet since I do not have the 3D glasses not sure if I will even buy them in the future. its a beautiful looking TV in terms of the thick All Glass Stand and the 51" slim Bezel at the J&R store I can barely tell the diff between this 720p set and the more Expensive 1080p version.
