Samsung PN51F5350AF Review – 51-inch Plasma HDTV

Originally Reviewed on May 14th, 2014

Up for Review: Samsung PN51F5350AF Plasma HDTV.

The PN51F5350AF comes with a huge 51 inch screen and integrates several futuristic features that make TV viewing experience more exciting. The picture quality facilitates HD viewing but you don’t get 3D compatibility. However, this is actually advantageous for the users. 3D is good in big screen theatres. Households are always better with 2D normal screens as you wouldn’t be willing to put on those oversized glasses to watch the news or follow your daily soaps. Other than the high picture quality, the PN51F5350AF also supports standard smart features and various connectivity and compatibility options. The closest competitor to the Samsung PN51F5350AF is Panasonic Viera TC-L65WT600. With a price tag under $2,000, this seems to be a worthy enough TV for any household or office environment.

  • Wide Color Enhancer Plus
  • ConnectShare™ Movie

The best thing about the Samsung PN51F5350AF is it sticking to the basics. Other than the smart and futuristic features, the PN51F5350AF offers a great quality of picture and sound and makes TV viewing the most entertaining experience. Talking about the picture, several innovative features including Wide Color Enhancer Plus have been brought together to provide the best quality of output. Among those, we would like to talk about the Samsung Clear Panel Technology. This allows optimizing the off angle richness and sharpness of picture quality. Samsung uses just a single picture panel thus negating out any chances of blur with dual layer screens. The full 1080p HD display quality further supports breathtaking and life like images. More realistic details ensure that the viewer experience is totally redefined. Another helpful feature is the Real Black Panel that brings about darker black levels and bolder hues. Samsung has really made great use of the huge color gamut and users can expect smoother pictures with deep contrast ratio. Other than the color reproduction, Samsung also incorporates 600 Hz Subfield Motion and high CMR that minimizes any chances of blur in the image.

The audio quality is also amazing with the PN51F5350AF. The Dolby Digital Technology optimizes between TV video and internet movies. Content played on wireless and wired devices via the PN51F5350AF are also optimized for the best audio output. This is largely supported by the DTS 2.0 and Digital Out support. The DTS streaming mixes down the dual audio channels and is played back through back firing stereo speakers. Every form of DTS audio is decoded to provide clear and smooth sound.

Other beneficial features with the Samsung PN51F5350AF include the Eco Sensor that helps adjust the TV brightness with that of the surrounding environment. The TV adjusts itself automatically to the surrounding providing highly contrasting images. Manual adjustment options are available too. Further with 2 HDMI ports, users can expect to connect more than one external device at the same time and expect smooth playback. With a Energy Star 6.0 compliance, the PN51F5350AF is also going to save the customer a lot of money in electricity bills. gives Samsung PN51F5350AF 4/5 stars.
