The PN50C590 is a 50", 1080p plasma television, part of Samsung's mid-range 590 Series for 2010. The PN50C590 is mostly identical to the PN50C550, but adds support for BD Wise, which optimizes resolutions when used with a Blu-ray player also supporting the technology. Like the 550-Series model, it features 4 HDMI inputs and "Touch of Color" design, as well as a 2,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, typical for plasma displays, which are known for reproducing deep blacks. Real Black Filter and Black Panel technologies further enhance contrast in dark content, while 600Hz Subfield Motion enables an exceptional response time of .001 ms, virtually eliminating blur in fast-moving scenes. The PN50C590 cuts energy consumption significantly compared to the 2009 models and qualifies for Energy Star.
