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.
