I did a lot of researching and comparing different LCD and LED tvs I have had this television for 6 months. Great color and great picture. I like that it has multiple hdmi inputs for my different video games, computer, and dvd player. i was a little hesitant at first to buy plasma from all the horror stories about screen burn and short useful life. I have been nothing but impressed with this television. the problems with plasma televisions are a thing of the past. Although they are an older television technology they still put out some of the best picture around. The difference between 720p on a plasma and 1080p on an LCD is very small. Compared to my other lcd television there is no comparison on picture quality. the blacks on my plasma are much darker and the picture seems to be more clear than the lcd television. overall i would recommend the samsung brand in any television you get, they are putting out some of the best tv's out right now. very happy with my purchase.
