I don't have this exact model but one from the same series - a PN50A550 to be exact. Originally when I purchased it I did not do much research on the model - which is frankly unlike me. I bought it because there was a deal on it and decided to take the plunge. Previous Samsung Plasma series have been known to be unreliable and noisy so I was a bit worried. Well, so far I've had my 5 series plasma for over 2 years and have had virtually no problems with it and I use it quite a bit. There's no burn in (well there is but it clears out pretty quickly). There isn't much electronic noise coming from the rear (although there is some, so if you're expecting a completely quiet TV you won't get it from this series of Samsung plasma). Plenty of inputs and a swivel base are all things this TV has and really leave you wanting very little from this TV. Sure it isn't 3D and only 120hz but I still think its a great TV for a great price.
