Released March, 2011
The Pros:Excellent price for a plasma TV, within reach for almost anyone. Picture quality is sharp and detailed, feels 3D on all HD content. Setup is relatively straight-forward, easy enough for entry-level users.
The Cons:Need to be careful of light sources, can get a fair amount of glare. Audio output is washed out, needs to be turned way up to hear people. Audible buzzing sound from the set as long as it is turned on.
The Samsung PN43D490 is one of Samsung's lower cost offerings in their plasma HDTV line. The forty-three inch display of this HDTV is what puts it at a lower price than the fifty-one inch PN51D490 model.

Specs shared between the two models include 3D capability, made possible with a set of SSG-3700CR active shutter glasses (which are sold separately). Another shared feature is a .001 millisecond response time, which makes for an optimum image reproduction. The 600Hz refresh with subfield motion aids in a blur-free picture. With the ConnectShare Movie feature of the Samsung PN43D490, you can plug your USB drive into the USB 2.0 port and watch videos, play music or view photos.
