Bought this Samsung PS51E550 in The Netherlands for € 699,-. I have this TV for about one month now, and there is not a trace of any brightness popups. Some people also mentioned some humming noise coming from the back of TV, but in my case this is not noticable at all. The only con so far is the reflectiveness coming from the screen during the daytime. Coming from a 40" Samsung LCD TV, this plasma offers colours that are more pleasant to the eye with softer tones that are less obtrusive than LCD TV's. At this screensize watching movies, nature series etc. is a great experience!
So did you just choose to ignore the brightness pops that come with this TV or did you really really not notice any? Genuinely interested in your reply as I have had this set for 3 months and the brightness pops are frustrating the living daylights out of me!
If you're not sure what I mean, watch the Gnarls Barkley music video for his song "Crazy" on this set...
We didn't notice any.
I have had this tv for two weeks now and it has brightness pops and the screen is too reflective in my room so it is going back I do not know how this got 5 stars
I have the 60 inch version. For two weeks I did a lot of thinking between this one and the 65E8000. The E8000 looked brilliant in the shop but it was double the price of the 60E550. I had the money but I finally decided against the extravagance and Im so happy with the picture. I think its value for money. The 3D is brilliant with no flicker and crosstalk compared to the LG 55LX6500 I had

Chord’s QBD76 HDSD is a top-class converter that delivers a brilliant sound from a well-built package. It has plenty of visual appeal, too
There are more talented rivals on the scene, but the veterans are enduring greats
Cracking value for an all-in-one home cinema system with only a few spec and performance gripes qualifying our praise
