    I’ve had this set for almost 3 weeks, and I absolutely love it. The picture is amazing; I compared it to sets with 1080p, and I like the picture on this one better. The sound is also fantastic; loud, clear, and with several different settings for TV, movies, etc. Speaking of settings, the menus are easy to follow and allow you to set the picture just the way you like it. The remote is easy to use, and the only thing I don’t like about it is that it has a slightly curved shape and tends to fall off the coffee table or sofa from time to time. Otherwise, I’m really happy. I did research for about a month and had a hard time deciding between this set and a Panasonic, but I’m glad I went with this one because it’s fantastic. One other note—do not buy overpriced cables for this or any other set! I bought a $4 HDMI cable from Amazon and it works perfectly. Why pay $20, $30, or even $50 for an overpriced cable that doesn’t work any better?

    UPDATE APRIL 18: I’m still loving this set, but I like it even more now that I’ve learned how to tweak the picture controls. The default settings have the brightness controls set very high; once I turned that down, the picture looks even more amazing. I also learned that I can set the picture and sound controls for each input device (cable box, dvd player, etc) and those settings will be saved and reappear each time that device is used. This is really handy if you like to use different settings when watching a movie, for example. My advice is to spend 10-15 minutes reading your manual carefully to learn what all the picture settings do, then adjust the picture to get it just the way you like it instead of using the default factory settings. It makes a big difference!

    I paid $679 for this 2011 model of 51″. After my 100 break in period, i turned up the contrast, brightness, and sharpness levels. I absolutely love it, and the sound is really quite good to me. While watching a movie on regular DVD, there are about 3″ of black screen on the top and bottem of picture. After 2 hours of watching this, I turned off the movie, and noticed some burn in from it. After watching regular HD tv for about 10 minutes, it was gone. I have watched or left the tv on cnn for hours on end, and the ticker going across did not burn in.. There is no ghosting on plasmas either. Gonna go get me a blu ray now.

    I have bought a number of flat panel tvs in the past and was looking a new tv with decent performance with a small bezel and fairly light as I needed to fix the tv to a plaster/concrete wall. Plasmas tend to give significantly better bang for the buck compared with LCD, so while the LCD TV were typically 10lb lighter for a 50″ screen, the cost was in the region of 50%+ higher for the same form factor.

    I did look at the LG plasmas as I have a 60″ LG 1080p in my main viewing room, as I found them to be solid quality and good value. I nearly bought the 1080p LG 50″ which was only 10%-15% more than this unit, but was put off by the fact that it weighed 60lb v 50lb for the Samsung.

    I don’t need internet connectivity as I get internet content from my TiVo, so the base model suited my needs. As for 1080p v 720p, at my viewing distance of 12′ I understand its not possible to tell the difference – this is certainly consistent with my experience. The picture quality is very good – the biggest constraint is the quality of the feed from my cable provider. I avoid watching SD content where possible so have limited experience of how the Samsung does here.

    As for plasma burn-in issues, I have had a bunch of plasmas and have never had an issue with them watching regular TV. I can’t comment on the sound quality as I use a separate receiver.

    All-in-all, this is a great tv, with very good picture quality and smallish form factor for a great price.
