Great product

By soonermajic from Undisclosed on 07/19/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This picture is first rate. Sounds really good, but of course I would like to add the Home Theatre type sound. Some of the Stations have such an incredible picture, I can't believe it's a TV! I researched ad nauseum (I'm OCD) & finally settled on this set, because of Panni's issues w/ black level reduction. I am not disappointed in any way on this Sammi!!

This 50 inch plasma TV is the best purchase I have made in years. The picture is outstanding and with the Samsung HT-BD1250 blue ray surround system the sound and sight is the ultimate movie experience.

Best performance for your money

By equsource from Tulsa, OK on 03/01/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easily the best TV I have ever owned, beats all LCDs into the floor. I don't write reviews for products (ever) but this one deserves recognition. I researched long and hard, spending (literally) days reading everything on the internet about every type of TV, and this one took the cake. Well done Samsung!!!

Worth the Wait!

By Stalk from Monroe, CT on 02/27/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am the type of guy who spends months researching all model specs and purchase options before buying a toothpick, never mind a plasma TV. After countless visits to electronic stores and hours spent churning through reviews I set my sights on the Samsung PN50B650. I knew I made the right choice when every Samsung dealer I went to was out of stock on this model. No doubt others did their homework too and determined this plasma had all the features found on the Samsung 860 series and other premium brands, at a lower cost. Once delivered the set-up was easy using the on-screen prompts. Once connected to my digital cable box and AV home theater receiver via HDMI I was off to the Olympics. The picture on the 650 is incredible. If you think Lindsey Vonn looked good on the cover of SI, take a look at her on this Samsung Plasma. Even Bode Miller looked good. Seriously, this HDTV plasma is incredible. The colors are outstanding and the images are so crisp you get the sensation of being there. No blurring on the downhill, skating, and hockey events, and the images were so clear I could read the smallest logos on their winter gear. If you are looking for great performance, incredible picture quality and value for your money this is the brand and model for you.

No need to look anywhere else

By Sportsfan2010 from Undisclosed on 02/21/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

CR was right. You need not look at any other brand. Stop browsing, stop second guessinig, and get this beautiful TV now. Easy to set up, controls are great. It'll blow u away Spend the extra $80 and get the wireless TV adapter. One negative is no Netflix Widget yet. I'm sure Smasung is working to rectify this.

I Love This Plasma HDTV

By RENER from Boyle Heights, CA on 02/16/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I just purchased the Samsung PN50B650 1080p Plasma HDTV & am amazed in quality, picture, performance & value. The colors are just amazing & the blacks are inky black which is comparable to the high end Panasonic's Plasma which I was considering. I saved money in this purchase & completely happy with my decision on going with Samsung. There is glare when the T.V. is off but when you turn it on the glare vanishes like magic. If your looking for a Great T.V. get this make & model you won't regret it. Better than any LED TV for sure. No motion blur whatsoever quick reactions due to the response time .001 with 600Hz it's truly awesome. This is the most true to life image I have seen yet. I suggest on getting a soundbar or add a home theater system with this plasma because the sound is mediocre. This Plasma is great for gaming also since I tried my PS3 on there I had to leave it there the motion and precision I get using game mode is truly remarkable. I can see so deep into the picture that some people were responding to the replay while playing COD MW2 online that they couldn't even see the person that I shot because of the depth this plasma allows you to see, to them it was like I was shooting at a dot.

amazing

By rain from New York, NY on 02/10/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have been reviewing Samsung products for almost two years prior to buying. The color and hues are amazing. Set up was really easy and I purchased the 1250 home theater system with it. Nice sound and the blue ray is perfect. This was everything as promised and as rated by consumer's reports.

Very Good TV

By cman from las vegas, nv on 02/01/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

What a beautiful and wonderful TV. The picture quality in standard def and hi-def is outstaniding!!! However, the sound quality is lacking for such a TV this size. Because of the location of the speakers (at the bottom), it makes the 10 Watts sound like one very small speaker with no bass, even after changing the sound settings. Recommed using with a home theater system for great sound as it is missing the much needed horse power. This is a great TV!!!

WOW

By dongeo from Undisclosed on 01/07/2010


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

It's like being at the theater when watching movies. We thought our old TV was good...but this plasma TV has the most clear, sharp picture we've ever seen, plus all the other features. We try not to brag about it to our friends' and relatives' who own other brands/models, but it's difficult. We would highly recommend this TV to them.

PICTURE QUALITY IS EXCELLENT

By DLFLANIGAN from MANSFIELD, OHIO 44903 on 12/30/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is by far the best 50" plasma TV that I have seen in operation, the display is tremendous. The menu is very user friendly and the connections to home theater amplifiers, Blu-Ray, internet, etc were well documented and easy to setup.

My first Samsung TV

By appaloosa2 from Walworth,NY on 12/17/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Well is this plasma really worth it ! Hands down one of the best pictures out there if not the best. You can read all the reviews done by the professionals and I would be very careful at what they say. One of the top reviewers online says this plasma comes in 4th place overall, but read all of the review and read all of the reviews 1st - 3rd and you will see that they say the PN50B60 has the best picture yet rated it lower on looks & sound. Well I don't know about you but that's why I buy a TV for the best picture everything else comes second to me. If you want the best sound buy a high end stereo. Does this TV sound bad NO it just is not up to the standards of a home theater system just like about every other TV out there. As far as the T.O.C. gradient red on the lower part of the TV.....which you can only see when up close to a off TV , I like it ...looks classy to me. The way some people have described it, you would think its neon. This plasma is in a room with a wall of windows on 2 sides west & south and the TV is on the east wall and I don't really get reflections that some complain about on plasma TVs. Picture quality on HD channels is unbelievable, they are amazing colors so deep. I can see why the picture gets rated number 1. My dad has a LCD buy another company that was twice the price of this plasma and there no comparison at all. This plasma just blows it away and he feels like he picked the wrong TV. He had his TV professionally calibrated and I didn't. Right out the box this TV looks that good. I have tweaked it on the movie mode but not far from the factory setting. I also did the most recent firmware download into the TV....very nice. I look at his LCD and if you are in one the correct seats you do get a decent picture, sit in one of the side seats and you might as well watch TV on your cell phone. With the plasma I don't get any of this in our living room at any angle you still see a perfect picture. Dad said don't buy a plasma you will wish you had a LCD....well I think he is second guessing that. Want the best picture out there ? Buy this TV and you will not be sorry. Compare them yourself in a store with the default settings on . I have not used the internet options except to do a firmware download update. How high tech is that ! Want the best sound then buy a stereo with some really good speakers. Me..... I just want to watch a perfect picture on a TV and Samsung has done that in my opinion. Thank You Samsung

Got Way More Than We Bargained For

By DerekM from Southern California on 12/16/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We have had this TV for about 4 months now and we are still impressed with it. We mounted it about 5 feet off the floor so the kids can't touch it and the viewing angle isn't compromised at all at about 14 feet away. I spent weeks researching LCDs vs Plasmas and I decided pretty early on that plasmas are FAR superior as far as color and motion are concerned. I was concerned about the brightness as compared to the LCDs but I only notice low white levels when the screen is almost all white on an ad or something like that. The glare that seems to be an issue with the plasmas is no problem with the Samsung. My electric bill has not gone up. The sound was a little lacking but it really isn't any worse than our old CRT- it just seems like it should be better because the picture is so good. We upgraded to a Bose surround sound system. Now watching this TV brings me such great satisfaction that sometimes I think the picture is going blurry and then I wipe away the tears of joy to see that the 650 is perfect. The only real complaints I have are cosmetic: I wish the subtle red stripe on the bottom of the frame wasn't there and I wish that the volume and other buttons on the TV itself were better visible. One real concern I do have, however, is how long this TV will last. Plasmas have a reputation of dying early and I didn't get a protection plan. Even if I have to buy a new one in a few years, these things are only getting better and cheaper so I guess it's a win-win.

BEST TV EVER!

By JayM from Undisclosed on 12/02/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Before buying this Plasma I read a ton of reviews about different brands and the PN50B650 sound like the one for me. From the beginning this TV had given me a great first impression. The "Touch of Color" design is what places this Plasma in a class of it's own. When I saw the TV idle, without displaying anything I knew that it would have more to offer than just being pretty. After I fully assembled the unit I turned it on and I was amazed of the clarity. I sleep in front of this TV, eat in front of this TV, fight for the remote from my kids and wife in front of this TV. BEST TV EVER!!!

Great quality TV

By mabels from Tulsa on 11/30/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am very happy with our new Plasma TV. The quality of the picture is great, simple to use and looks very cool. My two disappointments are the internet access seems very slow to load initially and it will not play most of my MP3's even though they play on every other device I have. I also find it hard to find information on what might be causing the problem. Honestly I did not buy a 50" plasma to get on the internet or listen to music so neither issue is that big of a deal and I think I only paid an extra $100 for that functionality so I am not at all unhappy with it. It just gives me more to play with.

Great Purchase

By BCSteve from Roswell, Georgi on 11/25/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This was the first HDTV I've ever purchased and couldn't be more pleased. After doing months of research decided to go with a Samsung and a Plasma. The B650 had all the basic features I'd ever need with some extras thrown in the mix. My biggest concern was the glare others warned me about with plasmas. The Samsung anti glare screen has worked incredibly well. Colors are true and vibrant. Picture is incredible! The only areas which could be improved...the sound system which I would describe as average and the TV stand. For some reason this TV tends to lean to the left (my neighbor and my brother's does the same thing so I suspect its a design flaw). These are non issues if you hook up to a surround sound system and use a TV mount. Despite this, I was still so pleased with the picture quality, I bought another Samsung a month later!

Wow!

By ooloncoluphid from Federal Way, WA on 11/23/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I didn't really realize what I was missing until I switched from a cheap LCD to this plasma. Black is black now, instead of dark gray. Contrast is awesome. One issue that prevents it from getting 5 stars on performance is the fact that it keeps resetting contrast to 100.

BEST IN CLASS

By Bajan from Wesley Chapel, FL on 11/22/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

When I was shopping for a new TV I considered many brands, types, sizes and prices. Then I went to one of the local stores to view the various models. The salesperson was very informative and pointed me to the PN50B650S even though it was not in store. I left and did some further research and found that it was the Consumer Reports Best Buy fot this class. My mind was immediately made up considering also the cost that the store presented if they were to get it for me. I have not regretted anything about this machine. Excellent in all aspects. Highly recopmmended.

Great TV with PIP

By DRuss from Grapevine, TX on 11/17/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

We selected this set becasuse it had PIP. Most new sets from just about every manufacturer have dropped PIP as a feature. I would highly reccomend this set. Great bang for the buck.

I love this TV

By SECFootballRocks from Madison, AL on 11/06/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was a bit wary when I first got this TV because of all the issues I'd read about and heard about plasmas having. I have had no problems at all with this TV. It has by far the best picture when compared to all of my friends' TVs. Football is awesome on this TV and is the main reason I got it. My daughter loves the Yahoo! Widgets. She uses the YouTube widget all of the time. Loading the widgets at startup is a bit slow, but I'm sure the processor on this TV is not blazing. The DLNA feature is kinda nice, but it takes a bit of time to load the pictures off of my laptop through the Wi-Fi network. It's cool to not have to hook the laptop up to the TV. I love it!

Best Purchase Ever

By aalkan from Undisclosed on 10/18/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I am very happy with my decision. I really enjoy the Media Play and Internet@TV features. It supports even 500gb external hard drives. The updates are coming very often and the software gets faster and better day by day. YouTube application still needs some improvement. It is very hard to do search.

Excellent Flat Screen

By roundtable from Northern VA on 10/14/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

HD display from cable is very sharp. Sporting events are phenomenal, crisp high speed action and vibrant colors from the team uniforms. OPPOs BDP-83 Blu-ray playing 1080p material on this TV produces a near 3-dimensional look to the display. Even though this plasma's color and black levels are outstanding, it is a plasma and is subject to 'burn-in'. The TV's features to eliminate burn-in are effective though. Anti-glare material is effective as we have this TV in a well lit family room. Heat produced is much less than expected and less that the large Trinitron CRT this replaced.

Great TV

By Tebor from Undisclosed on 09/27/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Beautiful image! Great swivel stand too! It's a shame that the Cinema Smooth capability isn't usable. Turning it on ruins black levels, though it makes 24 fps movies motion nice and smooth. A shame, since the motion smoothing is great, but not worth ruining the image appearance to enable it. I'd rate this TV all 5 stars if not for this problem. Sure hope they fix this bug, as Cinema Smooth is a feature I really wanted when I bought this TV.

Better Each Time

By mitch7p from Texas on 09/25/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have just purchased the pn50B650 and love it! This is my 5th Samsung TV, and like all the others, a great dependable product. The pn50B650 compared to the pn50A650 has several new great features, most of all the energy consumption. Uses less energy, less heat output, much more internet features, P.I.P feature, and seams to have better sound, and picture clarity. Great product Samsung!

Broken out of box.

By Bres from Boston, MA on 09/21/2009


Bottom Line:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bought TV and after turning it on noticed loud buzzing sound coming from back. Got that fixed then 1 hr later, tv turned itself off and never came back on. Person came back and decided that panel and power supply were bad. In process of getting a new TV. Hopefully its a new TV and not a Referb (the person who repaired my TV asked me multiple times if i had bought it new or referb). I thought this was one of the better TVs. Hopefully the replacement will work without any flaws. Picture was great tho.. when it worked.

I liked this TV for the 3 weeks that I've had it. Then it failed to power on. I have a request into Samsung for warranty service. I sure hope they come through!

Best TV !

By nicky from Bradenton, FL on 06/26/2009


Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

What a picture! This TV is awesome. The picture is clear and crisp and yes you can adjust it to your hearts desires. Our whole family is addicted now. We had a LCD and Upgraded to this plasma and what a difference, no more blury images on fast action sports or movies. The only problem is that I am unable to upgrade my software online thru the TV. I will be back in another couple of months to see how its going.
