Samsung PN43F4500 Review – 43-inch Plasma HDTV

Originally Reviewed on April 22nd, 2014





Up for Review: Samsung PN43F4500 Plasma HDTV.

Introduction of Plasma series has brought a new dimension to the television world. A plasma TV is known for its consistent high-quality picture display. The PN43F4500 is the smallest Plasma TV in Samsung’s 2013/14 Plasma TV line-up. It is not a feature-rich model, so you would not avail high end features like Smart Hub, Internet streaming, 3D playback etc. if you are purchasing this. However, it is a solid deal when price remains your major concern and you hardly want to use those extraneous features on your TV. Later if you want, you can add a Gaming Console or a Roku box to the TV, which would bring lots of advanced features at substantially lower price than you would spend on a plush model.


Here, we have got a list of its important features and specifications. Let’s take a quick look at them before we get into the details of the model.

Samsung PN43F4500 Features and Specifications:

  • TV Type: Plasma TV
  • High Glossy Edge Slim Design with Narrow Bezel
  • 1024×768 Native Screen Resolution
  • 600Hz Subfield Motion
  • Wide Color Enhancer Plus
  • Eco Sensor
  • Real Black Panel
  • Game Mode
  • 20-watt Audio with Dolby Digital Plus/Pulse and DTS Premium Sound
  • 1 USB and 2 HDMI Input Ports
  • ConnectShare Movie
  • ENERGY STAR 6.0 Compliant

Even though the PN43F4500 is available at just $300 or thereabout, its performance is way beyond that of an average budget TV. The fantastic high glossy black exterior looks stunning. The narrow bezel around the 43-inch screen simply adds to the beauty of the model. The contemporary look would make you believe you’ve literally brought a super gadget to your house. The design suits a dark room most.

The picture display is first-rate. Samsung’s Plasma display technology is robust and delivers consistently high quality pictures. Screen Resolution is 1024×768, not Full HD 1080p, yet it produces crystal-clear and flicker-free images. Also, Full HD 1080p resolution is not for all kinds of incoming signals, so you should feel great with the standard 1024×768 native screen resolution. For smooth viewing in case of fast motion pictures, the TV is programmed with 600Hz Subfield Motion that generates 600 frames of the video per second. Result is seamless and judder-free video streaming. The Wide Color Enhancer Plus and Eco Sensor are two proprietary features of Samsung, which are part of it. The former enhances the hue level by increasing the color range, and the latter adjusts the brightness of the on-screen images automatically with respect to the light intensity in the room. The Real Black Panel is a praiseworthy advancement in the image processing that produces deeper and darker black levels. Result is life-like picture display with bolder hues and stronger contrast.

The fantastic Game Mode is a huge plus for all game lovers. They can enjoy smooth and fast gaming with no input lag. Let’s talk about the audio unit. The 43-inch plasma panel has got two 10-watt speakers producing 20 watts output sound. Samsung has incorporated the Dolby Digital Plus and DTS Premium Sound to enhance the sound quality. You would love the immersive sound even when you are playing any external content on the panel.

To ensure full digital connectivity, the TV is built with 1 USB and 2 HDMI input ports. You can connect your digital camera and the USB stick to view the device-loaded content on the Plasma screen. The ConnectShare Movie is a fairly good feature that facilitates the ‘Plug & Play’ function. You do not need to install any extra hardware or software when running your USB device.
Due to low power consumption this is an ENERGY STAR 6.0 Compliant Plasma TV.
