    Not impressed

    First off for the price I paid ($299) its a great TV in that regard, but I wasn't impressed with the picture quality at all. I have a 42" Panasonic Plasma that basically has the same reviews (both are 720P) as this Samsung 43" and the Panasonic Picture is a lot better. I didn't get this TV to replace the Panasonic it was for another room but I cant get past the mediocre picture quality. It does have a lot more advanced settings for the picture but none of them helped that much. The sound is good , the power cord is short (I realize not many people give a you know about that but it is short) I wanted to like this TV and the price is outstanding for a 42" TV but I cant get past the mediocre picture on this TV. I would still recommend this TV for a first time HDTV buyer who isnt as picky as someone like me. I prefer Plasma to LED but I plan on returning this TV and try the Samsung 39" LCD although 60hz LED TVs are just bad for any motion scenes.

    Great tv while it lasted. Fifteen months and died.

    Great tv. Have one for my bedroom and one for living room. Like all movies and games in 3d. Does a good job of rendering non 3d images to 3d. Any net+ us really cool to enable on ps3 and the tv. Remote can work seamlessly with ps3 then. Power supply died. Capacitors blown. Samsung extended courtesy one time repair. Still not resolved. Opened ticket 5/22/2013. Had Hi Def Doctor come out once. They wanted to replace everything. Closed the ticket and never called back. Another vendor would not come out. Too far from them. Escalated to regional field manager. He's hooked me up with an NSP. fingers crossed.

    Slightly Dissapointed

    We had to replace our 2 year old Samsung plasma because one of my kid's friends broke it with the Wii remote. I am disappointed in this model's picture quality compared to my last 42 inch plasma. If you have the space, I suggest that you consider spending a little more for a 50 inch with better quality and more competition on price. Otherwise, this is still a very good value.

    I am comparing this model to a previous Samsung 43" set I had. The sound quality on this set is disappointing by comparison. When played at higher volume levels the sound is distorted, especially when the profile is set to other than Standard. It is especially disappointing when you know they have put better sound in their other models.

    I purchased this 43" plasma on clearance for $250 - a great price. Plasmas are being phased out thus the great deal. Set up was easy and the picture is good, not great but good. Sound is poor which is par for the course for flat screen TVs - probably a design choice so you have to buy a sound bar! I would purchase this unit again given the price.

    I bought this tv because I've always liked plasma vs led in terms of the price. I was able to get this for a great deal and not skimp on any of the quality features that a bigger screen should have. Overall I'd definitely reccomend this tv for use in an extra room or something

    Considering the price I am surprised. I thought with no real hook-up power on back (2 HDMI and too many audio out not in) I would lose out on some entertainment enrichment but I was wrong. The picture works well in my low lit basement.

    It is okay for a first big purchase as a couple. But after a. Couple months the speakers shouldn't sound like they are blown. Not sure what to do about it. When the TV hasn't been over 50-70% for volume it shouldn't have blown the speakers.

    This was a replacement tv because our home was broken into. We decided to get the same tv as we had before (it was on a super sale) and now I wish we had gone for the LED with smart features. If you are okay with not having that, it's a wonderful tv

    Setup was good, makes a great TV for gaming, movies... Overall picture is good, sound could be better... Not enough HDMI ports for all my devices, but for what I paid it was expected...

    As far as Plasma TVs Panasonic makes the best. I decided to give samsung a try and was disappointed. NO AUDIO OUT connection, only Digital Out. luckily my Wireless headphone has Digital In.

    My mom doesn't mind the glare but she is coming from a black /white era. I couldn't always figure out the remote control. Definitely don't like the dimming feature.

    Tv is used in workout room in office. We do not use the speakers on the tv. We were just looking for a low cost tv with a decent picture and this tv satisfies that need.

    This Samsung TV was great for the price of 400$ that was including taxes. I wish it would connect to the Internet. That's the only down side. Other than that. Great TV.

    I got this TV for a friend. Setup was easy. Picture is OK. They have Cablevision which is terrible compared to Direct TV so the resolution wasn't an issue.

    Can't beat the price. SD picture outline is burned into the screen. Can tell brightness difference on the outer screen when watching HD.

    I like it for an office tv, Not a smart tv or a 3D, But it's good if all you want to do is watch tv or hook a blue ray player up to it.

    Good but not amazing. If I cared more about TV status I may have spent more money on a high end product.
