Samsung 51" PN51F5300 1080p Plasma $549 [kmart.com] @ KMart and Sears

The 51" F4500 Samsung plasma is on sale at $399, however I do not recommend this model as it is not typical 720p resolution for a 50-51" class plasma (which is 1366x768p) but rather 1024x768p. The 43" is highly recommended though, and 42-43" class 720p plasmas have always been that resolution.

How to get it for cheaper shipped directly to your house or in-store pick up from Kmart (Shop your way account required):

Go to shop discover. Login directly to Kmart. Scroll down and click one of the links and get to the kmart site.

Type pn43f4500 in the search bar. You should get this:

Take a screenshot. You most likely will need it later.

Add to cart, login to SYWR, and all those applicable coupons will be applied, but the base total may change from 4000 to 3000. That is why you took the screenshot.

Put 3xpts in the coupon code, and you will get more bonus points, totaling 16000 bonus points.

So, end price real money charged to your card right now is $299+tax. (For me that was $322.49)

I will get a 29.90 statement credit from discover as 10% cash back. I also have 19000 SYWR points, or $19.00. You must go through kmart and get this to get these points. If you go through Sears site, and choose the tv indicating the price of $299, you will not get the same number of points. However, if you choose the tv from sears that says see price in cart and has no pics, you will be able to get the points since it will inevitably end up ordering from kmart, so don't do that since you choose kmart as your discover cashback. I will get it corrected adding 3000 more points in the morning.

This is a quality tv with good specs for a bedroom tv in a smaller space, and total price for me after all points and discounts is $271.29.

Look at the reviews on amazon. This is a quality tv for a bedroom tv if you don't need the smart features. I considered putting all this in a separate post as this is a FP deal at this price, but OP did a great job of updating the initial post as I provided new details of better prices as I found them. Perhaps mods will remember that and give me some credit for the daily giveaways if this gets to the FP. Smilie

they should be cheaper than this with the lackluster feature set AND the fact that they have a screen like a mirror

I agree they _should_ be cheaper, but they aren't. Many people just need the display, so limited inputs, smart features, etc are not a requirement. That, and plasma picture quality beats LED any day. I'll agree on the mirror issue, but for the price for a brand-name TV of these sizes, it's a deal. Maybe not for a sunny room, but still a good price.

Much better performance than a Changhong or Seiki LCD, IMO.

The 43" will do the trick at 720p, but the 51" is pushing it. It's about that range that your eyes can actually tell the difference.

i should have clarified the 51". thats around the size im looking for to put in my bedroom...and these tvs do have a mirror like finish...you must have yours in a dark room...open the curtains and let natural light in...i would love an 8 series samsung plasma for my bedroom because they have almost no reflection in natural light. those tvs are beasts! i just posted a deal for the 51" series 8, but its still more than i wanna pay for a secondary tv...i'll bite at $800 Smilie

720p is just fine, especially on the 43", unless you press your nose into the screen. However, if I was on a budget and was buying a plasma, I'd search for a deal on a Panasonic first. The Samsung plasmas are okay, but the color reproduction on Panasonics is much better, especially after calibration. The Samsung's only stand out by having slightly more white whites.

I will say that even this Samsung will outperform LCDs that are over twice the price. They just flatout look better for movies and unless you have an LCD with a really low latency, it'll probably perform better with games, too. LCD looks a bit better with games for me (mainly due to brighter whites while plasma has better black reproduction), but there's ups and downs to all display types.
