Samsung PN58C8000

 

Excellent 2D and 3D image quality. Very deep blacks. Unique, sleek design. A wide variety of Web apps

Not very energy efficient when compared with LCD-based HDTVs. Uncomfortable 3D glasses

Samsung's PN58C8000 58-inch 3D-ready plasma HDTV delivers top-notch picture quality, is beautifully designed, and comes with a wealth of Web apps.

Samsung PN58C8000 Review – 58-inch Plasma HDTV

 

The Samsung PN58C8000 is a 58” Plasma HDTV model. This is a 3D set, and is the 58” model grouped into the Samsung Class 8000 Series, which is equipped with 1080p.

There are also a few smaller, yet still equally worthy, features. The AllShare DLNA Networking feature, for instance, makes it so you can sync a PC wirelessly, as well as additional digital products, to your TV. This then gives you complete screen play...

Samsung PN58C8000 3D Plasma HDTV Reviewed

 

Samsung gets more ink for their uber-thin LED HDTVs these days but their plasma HDTVs are the object of affection among a number of reviewers. This 3D Samsung plasma gets the full treatment from HomeTheaterReview.com's Adrienne Maxwell....

The PN58C8000 is 3D-ready and has an integrated 3D emitter. It supports 2D-to-3D conversion ; This TV has a 1080p resolution and will accept 24p sources via its HDMI inputs ; The TV has plenty of connection options and picture adjustments ; The...

The package does not include 3D glasses ; The PN58C8000 does not have integrated WiFi ; Plasma TVs generally aren't as bright as LCDs and therefore aren't the best choice for a really bright room ; It lacks an IR or RS-232 port

With an MSRP of $2,999.99 and a street price around $2,500, the PN58C8000 is one of the most economical 3D-capable flat panels you can buy in the 55-inch-plus category (and that's without the free 3D Starter Kit). It's less expensive than most...

Three Days, Seems Superb

the glasses take batteries and I read many folks wanting rechgable ones because of the battery expense. well just buy the Duracell batteries online for about 60 each and the 60 dollar price difference on each pair is easily not economically justified....

Product Specifications

The Samsung PN-C8000 Series Plasma TV is Samsung's nicest plasma TV. In addition to having a wide selection of features, including 3D support, it has great picture quality. It has a "TruBlack" filter, which supposedly filters out ambient light that would otherwise be reflected, making the blacks look even darker, and the overall picture much better. This was one of the first TVs to introduce dejudder processing, which is another nice feature. It has a 2D to 3D conversion system, which is a fairly rare feature found only on some of the more expensive 3D TVs. Being a plasma TV, this should have better overall picture quality than an LCD, and the unique black filter might make it possible to use this in brightly lit rooms, which was previously impossible with the highly reflective plasmas. This is a great high-end TV, and it has a great picture.
