Samsung PN43E450 review


Even before you turn it on, the Samsung PN43E450 43" Class PDP HDTV enhances your environment by simply being a beautiful object. The black-brushed frame creates an illusion of floating which is augmented by the + 1" design, which is designed for a larger viewing experience in the same space. By narrowing the bezel of the TV, a sleeker, more contemporary look is achieved, as well as a larger screen. The additional inch of TV viewing space can fit into areas where other similar size TVs cannot.

One feature Samsung has made a staple in this plasma TV is the addition of SRS TheaterSound HD. This exciting feature translates into a high-definition audio experience that delivers surround sound multi-channel content, using built-in TV speakers to significantly enhance both the depth and dimension of audio right through the TV for a simulated surround sound experience.

Furthermore, ConnectShare Movie technology allows users to connect a thumb drive or digital camera quickly and easily. With the user friendly interface, you will have access to videos, a music playlist and pictures via the remote. Samsung audio and video devices connect via one of the two HDMI interfaces. Finally, Energy Star compliance ensures that your TV will save you money while it helps preserve the environment.
