>> Hi I'm David Katzmaier, Senior Editor from CNET.com. I'm with the Samsung FPT 5084. This is a 50 inch flat panel plasma TV. Samsung's best 50 inch model this year because it has 1080p resolution. This set I really like the style on it. It's got a nice thin border around the edge, relatively thin and that border itself is a glossy black. It's very nice and attractive. It's actually a little bit wider looking than it is tall due to these hidden speakers on the side. There's actually a pair of chrome accents on the side of the speakers. There are tiny slits hidden on either side of those. It's a really slick design complemented by this kind of touch pad of controls on the front here. The stand is a built in. it's a swivel stand. Of course you could remove it if you want to hang it on the wall, matching glossy finish on that stand. In terms of features you would expect from a high end TV this set pretty much has it all. There is plenty of ways to adjust the picture including color temperature controls. You can go in and tweak the color temperature. You can also play with gamma and a host of other picture controls. Round back you'll find a solid selection of inputs 2 HDMI, 2 component video, 1 PC input and the side panel also has a third HDMI input, so there is plenty of things you can plug into this television. Picture quality of the Samsung is among the best 50 inch plasmas we have seen this year delivered a very nice deep black level but the color accuracy was also very good, owing a lot to that color control that we mentioned earlier. On the downside its doesn't have the best glare reducing screen we've seen and there was a little bit of false contouring which appears as not smooth gradations between light and dark with some visible contours. Aside from that though a very good performing Plasma TV. That's a quick look at the Samsung FPT 5084 and I'm David Katzmaier. ^M00:01:41 [ Music ]
The Samsung PN50A550's accurate color helps set apart the excellent picture quality of this 50-inch plasma HDTV.
Deep black levels and accurate color help propel the LED-backlit LG LH90 series into the front row of the LCD picture quality class.
Although its black levels aren't the deepest, accurate color and a red frame still distinguish the Samsung PN50A650 from the pack.
With picture quality that's nearly the equal of the tough competition, as well as best-in-class design and features, the Samsung PND8000 makes a strong case the best overall plasma TV of 2011.
Deep black levels and a new antiglare screen make the 50-inch TH-50PX77U one of the top choices among plasma HDTVs.
Get a first look from the labs at Samsung's slickly styled and competitively priced 42-inch plasma TV.
The Samsung LND550's mix of features, style and picture quality stands tall among the tough entry-level LCD TV crowd.
Although this 42-inch plasma's glossy black styling and numerous inputs work in its favor, its issues with picture quality lessen its value.
The Samsung ES6500 is a competent television with good color response but it's not quite to the same level as the competition.
With decent video processing and accurate color that doesn't overaccentuate red, the Panasonic TH-42PX60U sets the standard for value among full-featured 42-inch plasmas.
