off room lighting or in the dark no

any sunlight or natural light hits it

very noticeable.

i have one and it's a stellar tv for the price but it's not a good fit in a room with direct natural light

I still own one plasma TV but have moved to LED for the other sets in my house. It is rarely used in one of my children's room.

I would recommend going with LED mainly for the energy savings. Not just want the TV consumes but the heat is generates will add on to your cooling costs. Of course, one could say during the winter, the heat from a plasma helps warm the room but this is a TV not a heater.

Plasma doesn't use that much electricity anymore, especially good sets. The only reason electricity cost would be a real issue is if you're using this as electronic signage. Signs should be LED LCD.

As a TV, plasma is better.

The yellow energy guide sticker on my Panasonic 60ZTZ60 Plasma says $34 YEARLY cost, based on 5 hours per day usage. Come on man! Seriously? You have a point on the heat generation, but Plasmas died because the manufacturers wanted them to because the TV companies make way more money on LEDs. Morons buying into marketing killed the plasma. A $700 60" LED will have glare too but will also look like garbage compare to this plasma. My TV buying opinion: buy the best panel you can afford. Don't waste your money on Smart features, rather buy a Fire TV or Roku 3 instead.

Video games look spectacular on plasmas, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend one for gaming because of input the small differences in lag between LED and Plasma, although my Plasma has a 'Game Mode' to combat this. The few plasmas that are made today are nothing like the ones from a decade ago. My ZT is thinner than my brothers new Vizio LED, and not a bit of image retention. Sports and movies on Plasmas just crush the viewing experience on LEDs, and are not those two things what TV's are made for (if you're a dude)? If you buy one to watch Oprah and brag on huffington post about your LED and Prius, well....enough said.

Sorry, not trying to be mean, but the disinformation concerning plasmas is staggering.

I bought this TV for $600 at Microcenter a few months ago, and it's gorgeous.

People who argue LED vs Plasma are generally complete farking idiots. The energy consumption is approximately the same with both an LED and Plasma these days. The glare with Plasma is not any more of an issue as it would be on an LED TV. You do not need to put a Plasma TV in your basement.

Nail on the head. I'm always telling people if you can still find a plasma go for it. I still have my samsung from about 6 years ago. My only question is are they still heavy as hell(Plasmas made today)?

I agree. LEDs are great for 4k and bright rooms. I own 2 LEDs (bright rooms) and one older plasma. Even after spending 1-2 hours adjusting the settings on the LED I still prefer the plasma and it's 5 years older.
