I’ve read her books and articles, in Japanese and English. I just do not know what to say. She got bullets for what she wrote? What a fantastic world.

    Quality TV for the price, March 22, 2011

    I had been holding out for the 2010 42″ Samsung Plamsa model to drop in price which I had been patiently watching since early November. When the price was still the same come March – I decided it wasn’t getting any cheaper.

    When to my surprise Amazon wasn’t offering Free Shipping on that TV any, I noticed the 2011 Samsung Plasma’s were available and with free shipping – I actually go the new model (which is now +1″ to 43″)for cheaper than last years Plasma.

    Out of the box the TV appearance is a nice liquid glossy-black finish. Very thin TV – probably 1″ deep in most spots (excluding where the mount attaches). The input panel required plugs to be plugged in horizontally – so expect to have to have a punch-panel or hole in the wall on the lower left side of the TV screen (lower left if facing the TV) to get the connections to hook-up. Why TV makers won’t allow vertical input connections on TV’s like this is beyond me.

    If not wall mounting it comes with a good quality stand – though one of the mounting holes on the TV was stripped on my mount out of the box – something I didn’t discover until days later. Since the free stand is temporary for me and I’ll eventually wall-mount, I was not concerned.

    Picture quality is what you’d expect from a plasma – bright colors, good blacks, and a little bit of a glossy (reflective) screen. The screen isn’t too bad – I use it in a highly lit room and only if the sun is right on it does it bother me.

    This set is 720p – and after reading 1000 different opinions/tech articles on 1080p vs 720p and it doesn’t matter because you can’t really tell the difference unless you are too close. I can say this – you CAN tell a difference if you are coming from 1080p to 720p.

    I have a bigger 50″ 1080p TV in a different/home theater room. It is also a Samsung – but a much older rear-projection LED (YES – LED, they offered it one way back year – new LED TVs are not rear-projection LED; they no longer make them). The 1080p picture is silky smooth compared to this new Samsung. Don’t get me wrong, this set looks really good – if I hadn’t spent 4 years watching TV on my other TV I would have never known. But side by side looking close at the 720 screen you see clear pixels – there are no pixels on my 1080p 50″ screen – no matter how close I look. On this screen you can see pixels/not-that-sharp of an image from about 3′ away. That not-that-sharp image can be see from a distance – the picture just isn’t as ‘liquid’ as my old 1080p. However, until I saw it side-by-side I wouldn’t KNOW better to complain – can you see the difference – yes. But my point is you won’t know any better till you’ve seen then side by side. You don’t know how clear it can be until you see it.

    That said it’s still really good for the price and I’d would buy it again since ~$500 was my price range.

    Bottom-line this is a good 720p Plasma for the price, but if you are looking for that GREAT picture quality hold-out for a 1080p set. If my 5 year old 1080p looks better than this brand new 720p, the new 1080s have to be even better.

    Just got this TV! Was wondering between Panasonic and Samsung and LCD vs. Plasma. I bought this one to replace my Panasonic Viera 32″ 720p LCD. My room to watch is not so big and the space to place the tv was just right. I don’t have a home theater and just use HD from the Comcast source.
    The sound is great! The colors are bright and the image response is incredible fast. For sure is not a 1080 (which for this price, still the best buy!)And this is 43inch!
    No regrets in getting this! The price, no sales tax and free shipping!! It came in time fashion and right when they told that was going to be here.
    If you still wondering about this, pull the trigger, you will NOT regret!!!

    This Plasma TV is INCREDIBLE!! I have been researching HD TV’s for 2 years and kept going back and forth between LED & Plasma. Trust me, if your primary reason for purchasing a TV is picture quality there is not comparison to the RICH colors of Plasma. If you are a sports fan, this is the TV to buy! Just keep in mind where you locate the TV in a room that you do not have a window or excessive brightnes behind it but the colors are “real” and PLASMA is definitely the way to go. Oh ya, lets not forget the price at Amazon $539.00 with no sales tax & free shipping.

    What a huge loss for us. Even though she knew this could happen, she did not step back. But this should not have happened at all

    Journalists, bloggers, NGO activists, Anna’s translator and many others held a memorial meeting in Tokyo on 12 October 2006.
    You can find some pictures of the meeting (and read about it, in Japanese) at the url below:
    chechennews.org/chn/0622.htm

    One of the organisers read out his letter to the murdered journalist:

    "Dear Anya,

    This is the first letter to you, and it is a great shame that
    you are now dead.
    I’m ashamed of myself for not having written to you
    before this happened to you and us.

    When you hear the gunshot that took your life,
    none of us, readers of your news stories and books, knew about it.
    You were alone in the lift when you were seeing your death.
    None of us was there. This is a great shame.

    You were the messenger.
    You told us about the war in the North Caucasus.
    The terrible war that has caused so much sorrow.
    You told us
    how people are suffering in the rubbles in the city of Grozny,
    in villages and forests in the Republic,
    and in the streets of Moscow,
    How people are suffering, how people are killed, you told us.

    You let us know what we aren’t willing to know.
    You opened our eyes.
    You made us realise that each of us have something to do.

    Still, we couldn’t protect you. The world failed to protect you.
    This is a shame. A great shame.

    Someday we, along with people in Caucasus, will thank you.
    It’s when we see that you have left us the most important thing
    to end the war.

    Good-bye, Anya.
    May God be with you and your family."

    [rough translation by me.]
