Samsung PN51F4500 Review – 51-inch Plasma HDTV

Originally Reviewed on April 25th, 2014





Up for Review: Samsung PN51F4500 Plasma HDTV.

PN514500 is the larger of the two models in Samsung’s F4500 plasma panel series. Like its 43-inch line-mate, it does not include 3D streaming or Smart TV functionalities. Due to these exclusions Samsung has kept the price of the panel way down. Picture format is 720p but it is still capable of producing breathtaking pictures that you usually get on a Full HD 1080p display. People, who do not want to go the expensive Smart TV route or the LED TV route, should take PN51F4500 as a really good choice.
It may not be offering you as many features as a top tier model happens to offer, but the stuff it offers are high-quality, consistent and fully future-proof. Here is a list of its prime features and specifications. Let’s take a quick look at the list and cover all the details of the model subsequently.

Samsung PN51F4500 Features and Specifications:

  • TV Type: Plasma TV
  • Screen Size: 51 inches
  • 720p Native Screen Resolution
  • High Glossy Plasma+1 Design
  • Clear Image Panel
  • 600Hz Subfield Motion
  • Wide Color Enhancer Plus
  • Eco Sensor
  • Real Black Panel
  • Game Mode
  • 1 USB and 2 HDMI Input Ports
  • ConnectShare Movie
  • 20-watt Audio with Dolby Digital Plus/Pulse and DTS Premium Sound
  • ENERGY STAR 6.0 Compliance

The 51-inch PN51F4500 has got a couple of good things to mention. First is its standard screen size. It’s neither too large not too small, which is why it fits into any standard room quite easily. The high glossy Plasma+1 design is a stand-out property of the model that provides the TV a sophisticated slim depth. With this kind of minimalist structure the TV looks less bulky and lighter. The screen resolution is 720p rather than Full HD 1080p yet the TV delivers fantastic picture display since it’s programmed with plasma display technology. The Clear Image Panel technology optimizes the off-angle sharpness so you can have a better TV viewing experience. The 1-layer glass structure makes sure there is not blurring on the pictures. Wide Color Enhancer Plus and Eco Sensor are two excellent inclusions on the plasma panel. The Wide Color Enhancer Plus provides a greater hue level by increasing the color range, and the Eco Sensor automatically adjusts the brightness of the on-screen images by measuring the light intensity in the room.

The Real Black Panel is programmed to provide the display deeper and darker black levels. Result is clearer picture, higher contrast and bolder hues. Furthermore, the TV has got 600Hz Subfield Motion, which generates 600 video frames per second. As a result, fast motion pictures become smooth, natural and absolutely judder-free. This comes into great effect when you are watching action sports and fast moving content.

The Active Game Mode is a good incorporation too. Game Mode, when ON, makes sure that there is no input lag, so the gamer enjoys a seamless gaming on the plasma. To enhance digital connectivity options the TV gets 1 USB and 2 HDMI input ports. The ConnectShare Movie feature is programmed on the panel that allows you to just connect your USB stick and play the content directly on the large panel. You need not install any extra hardware equipment. Similarly, you can connect your external devices such as digital camera, DVD player, Blu-ray Player or your PC on the HDMI ports and view the device content on the plasma screen instantly.

Talking about the Audio, the TV is built with two 10-watt speakers. The total audio unit is boosted by Dolby Digital Pulse/Plus and DTS Premium Sound, so you ultimately get high-quality and lovely sound. Due to low energy consumption it’s an ENERGY STAR 6.0 Compliant TV.
