Samsung PN64E8000


The Samsung PNE8000 is easily the most full-featured plasma TV on the market; no other can touch its sheer doodad-ification. It's the opposite of a " dumb monitor, " building in not only the most app-happy Smart TV suite available, but also voice and...

The Samsung PNE8000 series exhibited outstanding overall picture quality, characterized by exceedingly deep black levels, accurate colors, superb video processing, and very good 3D. Unlike LCDs, as a plasma TV it has superb off-angle and uniformity...

Samsung charges too much for extra features that are largely unnecessary and poorly implemented. Its picture delivers slightly worse shadow detail and bright-room performance than some competitive plasmas, and its maximum light output is somewhat dim.

The expensive Samsung PNE8000 series comes through with stellar picture quality, but its main appeal is to people who crave the latest gadgetry in their plasma TV.

Samsung PN64E8000


While OLED technology is grabbing headlines, Samsung is also quietly updating their plasma lineup with the PNE80000, a Smart TV that features new apps, gesture and voice control, facial recognition and an improved panel. No word on pricing, though...

Improved plasma panel promises better color ; Voice and gesture control ; Cloud connectivity and a new suite of apps

Could be too smart for some consumers

Though the Samsung PN64E8000 has a brand new panel that supposedly improves color and contrast, the most heavily-advertised improvement to Samsung’s flagship plasma was a complement of connectivity and user control features. New apps take advantage of...

"Poor Workmanship and designed to fail."


It appears Samsung TVs have no quality control (other than the consumer being stuck with a defective product, so if you got a good one, you are very lucky, but I suspect you will have problems at some point). Right out of the factory sealed box, my...

U-Tube is worth the slow painstaking process to get to.

Poor quality control, terrible customer service, if you get stuck with a bad one, like me, you are SOL. Problem appears to be with all high end Samsung TVs.

"What an amazing TV!"


My dad has this same model from two years ago and it looks so much better than that one. It's huge, it looks classy, the picture is really sharp. The factory settings seem to be a little dark and I haven't calibrated it yet, but overall I'm very happy...

Amazing picture quality, the 3D performs great, the apps are better than I expected, and it has more features than I've been able to fully test out. My last TV was a 50" 1080i DLP with DVI, this is just miles beyond it. Best looking video games ever.

When people on screen say "hi", my TV thinks I'm talking to it. I just can't see myself using that or the gestures. It's kind of dumb. The registration process is way easier with a PC. It was missing 4 screws for the base! Why two remotes?

Samsung Plasma TV PN64E8000


Outstanding tv set. Everyone loves it. I use to be a Sony Fan.

Consumer review by:

Great TV! I love it


There are so many features in this TV that its hard to review. The motion sensorvoice controlwebcam all work as advertised, but I think theyre fairly gimmicky. I like using a remote instead. Its faster. The app store, however, is great. I really like...

Buy good cables


kk99 That is obviously a cable issue and not the TV's fault. Buy better cables with more shielding and the dark bands will go away. You will see dark bands extending like that on any display technology when using bad cables


Consumer review by:

not pleased


continue... now, even though those were much more noticeable on a PC, they exist when watching TV... but since the image moves all the time and things aren't as Black/White for long... they aren't as apparent. But I can notice the band if looking at...

Samsung *did* make an effort to accomodate me... However

Very disappointed with the TV! I purchased this TV as part of a new Home Theater I was building in my living room. One of the things I really wanted to do in my new setup was to hookup a HTPC... so, as part of the new toys, I also built a PC...
