Good points:
Nice image, great price for such a large tv. Good sound quality, decent number of connection options.
Bad points:
Limited DLNA capabilities and lacks internet tv and YouTube which the LG screens have...if I had the option I would pay the extra few pounds and get the LG for the extra features.

Good points:
I was a little concerned when I read other reviews regarding the buzzing noise, but I must say that , unless I put my ear next to a speaker, there is no noise at all. All in all a great television at a great price.

Manufacturer's Description

The Samsung 550 plasma has leaped into a new era, where big impressive screens now come with crisp images and vivid colours. This new platform of plasma screens also brings together simple one touch controls, wireless connections, and mega dynamic contrast for that cinema effect. You might want popcorn when watching this TV.
All Share keeps you connected.
All Share keeps you connected.
Samsung HDTV takes the struggle out of sharing your talent with the world, or at least with your family. Transfer your videos, music and photos from your PC or mobile device. Wirelessly and effortlessly. It even connects with multiple PCs. Who said you need connections to get on TV?
Every angle is right with Clear Image Panel.
Every angle is right with Clear Image Panel.
Amazing picture quality cant exist with blurring on your screen. Thats why we developed Clear Image Panel for our new plasma TVs. It uses a film filter instead of conventional glass to eliminate layered images and produce ones that are ultra-clear and blur-free from almost every angle.
600Hz subfiled Motion
600Hz subfiled Motion
Ever notice how with plasma screens, motions can get a little jerky? Unless you happen to be looking at one of Samsung’s new plasma TVs. Every frame is seamlessly smooth because we put 10 full subfields into each frame. That’s 600Hz. So contours are crisper, scrolling text sharper and the juddering issue is finally put to rest.
4 HDMI
4 HDMI
All it takes is one cable to connect your TV to your other audio and video sources. Our HDMI slot allows you to import all kinds of content without compression including pictures and videos from your digital camcorders and multimedia PCs. Now enjoying it all on a wide HD screen couldn’t be easier.
Connect Share Movie
Connect Share Movie
Theres no excuse anymore for leaving all those great digital pictures and videos in your cameras. All you need with the Samsung HDTV is USB connection cord. Just plug it in then instantly play.
It even works for your music collection. So now anytime is showtime.
Full HD 1080P
Full HD 1080P
Anyone can say they have the clearest picture. But only Full HD 1080p has twice the detail and twice the resolution of regular HDTV. It delivers dazzlingly, rich colour and vivid details. And even corrects the errors from standard definition content. It’s definitely not your father’s HD.
Mega Dynamic Contrast (PDP)
Mega Dynamic Contrast (PDP)
Getting a true cinematic experience used to mean going to the cinema. But with Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio true cinematic clarity comes to plasmas. Every frame is saturated with dense, rich colour. Blacks have more depth and the whites are unbelievably pristine. The only thing missing is a large head blocking your view.
Wide Colour Enhancer
Wide Colour Enhancer
Capturing nature is the goal of an artist. We’ve achieved it as well with our Wide Colour Enhancer. Our unique 3D colour stretching technology saturates each pixel until it achieves the true colour and luminescence intended by nature. So every colour on the RGB spectrum is brought to life. It is a work of art.
Response Time 0.0001ms

It’s hard to beat the speed of light. That’s how fast our plasma screens respond to each new image. 0.001 ms is all it takes for each pixel to re-generate clear, crisp, robust colors. That’s why there’s no blur or ghosting in the picture. And there’s less strain on your eyes. You can’t beat that.
Anynet+
Anynet+
Take the drama out of enjoying your home theatre. Anynet+ delivers one-touch control for all compatible Samsung audio and video devices connected via HDMI. Now one touch is all it takes instead of a coffee table full of remotes.
This TV doesnt settle for less than perfect.
This TV doesnt settle for less than perfect.
A picture thats smooth and clear doesnt always magically appear. Thats why many of our latest HDTVs are equipped with a digital noise filter. When you have a less-than-perfect picture in a poor reception area, this filter reduces the analog noise created during transmission – reproducing clear images, sharp details, and bringing images back to their original beauty.
