Martin, Belfast Sports and games fan

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Cheap, good size and decent picture
Bad points:
Picture kept going blank whilst there was still sound coming out; if i wanted that i would have bought a radio!! After 2 weeks my child tapped (and i mean tapped) the screen with his empty sippy cup and the whole screen cracked, £380 to get it fixed.(i threw it out instead) Do not by this product if you have children, animals or like to leave your windows open for even a gentle breeze would break this thing, in fact just do not buy it at all!

Jaimon, Film and documentary lover

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
51 inches
Bad points:
Can't connect to internet and browse like a smart TV. The point at the back where you can connect as a monitor, is very different to normal monitors. It costs £40 to buy the special cables itself! Overall a big TV with basic functions. 3D is blur and not to the effect.
I'll not be recommending this product from Samsung!

Manufacturer's Description

Samsung PS51E490 51’’ Series 4 3D Plasma TV allows you to choose great value and outstanding viewing at the same time and delivers an amazing Full HD 3D experience in your living room. You don’t have to worry about reflected light spoiling your entertainment, either – the Real Black minimises glare and ensures that dark shades are enhanced. Clear Image panel structure also eliminates image layering and blurring, giving you a clearer picture from almost every angle. You’ll also enjoy smoother moving images, thanks to sophisticated subfield motion technology. You’ll love both the performance and the price.

Enjoy realistic 3D viewing in Full HD – Bring home an immersive and spectacular 3D experience. Samsung’s innovative and powerful 3D active shutter glasses deliver full HD 3D viewing. It’s enhanced by Micro Dimming and 3D Auto Contrasting to bring you deeper and clearer 3D images. You’ll even see your 2D content in another dimension using the 3D Converter. These awesome visuals are complemented by cinematic 3D sound, as well as an expansive viewing area with slim bezel for minimum distraction. Enter a spectacular world of Full HD 1080p 3D TV.

Smoother images for greater clarity – Using the latest in subfield motion technology, Samsung Plasma TV flashes a single image up to 600 times a second. The result is smoother images with unprecedented picture quality, no matter how fast the images are moving.

Sleek and simple design – Samsung’s Slim Plasma TV takes advantage of the latest innovations in plasma technology to design a slimmer plasma TV. The new slimmer model creates an absolutely stunning and sleek profile that you need to see to believe.

Bringing a full multimedia experience into your living room – With High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) inputs, the Samsung TV will transform your living room into a multimedia entertainment centre. HDMI provides high-speed transmission of high definition digital data from multiple devices straight into your TV. That means you can enjoy a wide variety of content on the big screen.

Real Black Panel – The Real Black on your Samsung TV reduces the on-screen glare caused by ambient light, so blacks and shadow details are as crisp and defined as possible. So with minimal reflection caused by the light conditions, images are clean, crisp and distraction-free.

Clear Image Panel – The Samsung Plasma+1 TV uses a new filter and panel structure to eliminate layered images and produce clear images from almost every angle. This also eliminates the production of dual images and blurring typically found with glass.

Watch movies from your USB – With ConnectShare Movie, simply plug your USB memory drive or HDD into the TV and instantaneously enjoy movies, photos or music. Now, you can experience a wide variety of content in the comfort of your living room on your TV.

Wi-Fi Ready – Gaining access to the infinite possibilities of next generation entertainment is as easy as plugging the Wireless LAN Adaptor into the Samsung TV. Content from your PC can be directly streamed to the TV, allowing you to enjoy your favourite videos and other media files from the comfort of your couch. PC Streaming turns your living room into the ultimate multimedia cinema.
