Maybe it's terminology for something that I already know, but I'd like to know the difference. I'm looking at a few new Samsung Plasma TV's and Samsung has added on a few features that are cloaked in these deceptive marketing terms, particularly with how a plasma handles black levels. Anywho, let me know. Thanks.
For those wondering I'm between the Samsung PN51D550 and the Samsung PN51D450.

I was quickly googling your question over here. And came up with something very similar to what you are asking take a look at this link it may answer your question. I know computer wise I get the same general questions but questioned slightly different. But this may answer your question here easier. http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070619071920AAFnIcY

While I am unsure perhaps on some of the "features", looking at the Technical Specs of both reveal that the first you describe, the PN51D550 has a "full" HD resolution of 1920x1080 while the PN51D450 is only 1360 x 768 native resolution often described as "HD Ready" so full HD content would be scaled down.
While the difference may not be visible to many users, it is something to consider if you are able to tell such a difference.
