I'm sure with all new products there are going to be some that out of the box are not good, for me, it has worked great since set up and running it for about a week. I also read it takes over a month for the colors to "settle in". Non-HD picture is just OK - but I came from a DLP TV so I would compare it as the same as my old TV. This TV is made for Blu-ray and HD content.
Built in Web Browser and Wifi
In my opinion this TV looks as good or better than the ES8000 design-wise. A good chunk of dough has also been wiped from the price, so consider this one of my top value pics for 2013/2014. The only thing it gives up from the top model are the micro dimming ultimate, though it still has micro dimming, and it has a dual core processor rather than the quad-core, and no front facing camera.
A terrific collection of features and smart content
The 55-inch F7100 is not worth $2,499 (though it's available right now for $1,699). While Samsung's Smart Hub (and the cable connectivity therein) is probably the best smart platform on the market, it's still only a smart platform. On one hand, this TV looks great, and is fitted with all of the modern accoutrement you might want with an investment in a new display. Be warned, though: It has a few drawbacks that make me hesitate to praise it further.
Just AMAZING 3D
The glass is very reflective! I would have to have some very good curtains to block out the bright sunlight reflecting from the screen. Other than that this was/is a great buy for the size and features. I am NOT anywhere near a videofile, so pleasing me might be a lot easier, but there were no dead pixels, no video/contrast adjustments needed. I will do a video fine tuning this summer, but I only expect to be tweeking (minor adjustments).
Active 3D is available
The PN51F5500 is the smallest size in the mid tier plasma series from Samsung. Picture quality is strong here but it lacks a bit when compared to the top tier F8500 plasma. This is to be expected, but the feature set is still quite good. The F5500 uses Active 3D to create 3D images, Samsung's new Smart Hub is offered with all the apps and online content you would ever need.
What else do you wan for the price?
If you want a large screen for a cheap price, stop here. This TV might not have all of the bells and whistles that Samsung or Sony offer, but you also are not paying anywhere near those prices, either. This TV offers a great picture at a great price (at 40"), and for my money that is all that I really care about.
Phenomenal TV ~ Takes HD to a whole new level
This is without a doubt the finest TV that I've ever had the pleasure to use. In comparison to my 5 year old Samsung HD TV, this one makes the Samsung look like a part of ancient history. The first thing that grabs you is the incredibly sleek design. The bezel surrounding the TV is razor thin, thus there is no wasted space at all. Not only does this provide for excellent viewing, but it makes it possible to place the TV in a cabinet that's just slightly larger than the TV picture itself.
Lots of options for image-tweakers
Which is better: a mammoth TV with a mediocre picture, or a smaller TV with a great picture? If you're in the camp that believes size trumps all, Vizio has just the LCD. The Vizio E601I-A3 spans a whopping 60 inches, yet sells for under a grand. Your budget wins, even though your eyes will wish you'd spent a bit more.
Seiki SE50UY04 is Pretty Good for 1st shipping 4K set
So far, the Seiki SE50UY04 is pretty good for being the 1st 50" 4K UHDTV shipping set in the US under $5K, as there simply are no alternatives right now (hence, the 5 stars compared to only 1080p HDTV sets).
You can run it with a moderate priced GPU like the AMD 7970 or Nvidia 680 over single HDMI cable - OR - if you have a newer home theater receiver with 4K output, certainly use it.
Fantastic TV for the price!
I narrowed it down to this TV compared to similarly priced Samsung or LG. I'd like to say that maybe I got lucky (knock on wood) but the edge-light bleed is not so bad. After reading some forums about edge-light problems some people have had, I was expecting a nightmare. I went from a 32" Philips LCD TV to this and I have to admit the Black level of the Vizio isn't as dark (probably a byproduct of the edge-lighting).
Create images with greater clarity
It is a slight step up from the F6300 series below it. The two series are pretty much the same except for 2 major additions in the features department. First there is local dimming, that helps to create a better contrast ratio, and second is the inclusion of active 3D. Those are two big upgrades for such a small step up. This TV is aimed at those looking for a value model that offers a little more than just a nice picture.
Big and powerful yet quite affordable HDTV
All in all, they made a good job producing the Philips 46PFL5907. It does it job nicely no matter what you use it for. It's not also the most expensive one out there. The Philips 46PFL5907 is worthy of consideration for prospective HDTV buyers!
Worth every penny
Color calibration is outstanding. Sound bar is amazing. 3D effects and quality are surprisingly good. I was scared of seeing bad pixels / motion issues. 120hz trumotion is amazing. I'v been watching NFL in this tv and this TV is awesome. You can control TV and sound bar with one remote. 3D blu ray player was a bonus.
Great TV if your looking for a monitor with minimal inputs
I use this with a dedicated Media PC and audio receiver so I didn't want to pay extra for smart TV features or multiple inputs and outputs. I wanted to use this as basically just a huge monitor and its perfect for that
The default picture settings do need some tweaking; the back lighting, gamma, brightness and contrast all needed some adjusting, but once that was done I was very happy with the picture.
