Samsung Plasma Series 4 (2008)
Released March, 2008
The Pros:Competitively priced. Good SD handling. Extensive anti-burn-in options.
The Cons:Only 3:2 pulldown for 24p content.
The Samsung Plasma 4 Series shouldn't be confused with the Samsung 4 Series in the LCD market, both released in 2008, despite their very similar names and specifications. Both series lie at the entry-level of their respective lineups and feature a native resolution of 720p, the notable difference is the panel technology used, with this line being plasma.

Adding to the confusion is that the 4 Series of plasmas are split further into two, as the 450 models are slightly more advanced with 3D capabilities. The step-up from the 4 Series is the Plasma 5 Series which is the entry-level 1080p line.

3D Capability - found on most of Samsung's 2008 plasma lineup (410, and 530 models excluded) allows for the television to display content in 3D. To unlock these capabilities however you must purchase the optional 3D kit which contains an Infrared Emitter and the accompanying glasses. Furthermore, currently 3D content is limited and requires you to use your computer hooked up to the television.
The Plasma 4 Series is split up into the 450 models which are more common and found in traditional electronic retailers. The 410 models are intended for discount retailers.
410 models - No 3D
