Samsung PND8000 review: Samsung PND8000

 

The Samsung PND8000 series has outstanding overall picture quality, with excellent black-level performance, and the most accurate color of any TV we've ever reviewed. It can handle bright rooms well and exhibits the nearly perfect screen uniformity of...

The relatively expensive PND8000 cannot produce full shadow detail or proper 1080p/24 cadence without sacrificing some black-level performance. Smart Hub lacks Amazon Instant, its search is next to useless, and its interface can be cluttered and...

With picture quality that's nearly the equal of the tough competition, as well as best-in-class design and features, the Samsung PND8000 makes a strong case for being the best overall plasma TV of 2011.

Samsung PN64D8000

 

The PN64D8000 is the top of the line for Samsungs 2011 Plasma lineup, and it has a feature list to match, with built in WiFi, internet streaming and the ability to run apps from Samsungs' new online app store. Although the feature list is wide, the...

The PN64D8000 is the top of the line for Samsung in 2011 as far as Plasma HDTVs go. Their LCD lines has been their main focus recently, but their plasma lineup still remains an attractive alternative, providing a lot of performance and a feature set to...

Best 64-inch 3D plasma TV

 

It's not inexpensive, and some plasma TVs deliver blacks that are just a touch darker, but the 64-inch Samsung PN64D8000 delivers a huge screen, impressive overall picture quality and just about every feature that a TV enthusiast might want or need. If...

Terrific overall picture quality, excellent color performance, internet streaming with built-in Wi-Fi, 3D works better than ever

Expensive, blacks a touch lighter than some competing TVs, not the best TV for a well-lit room, streaming media interface too crowded, early sets subject to "peeling" of anti-reflective screen coating

Samsung PN64D8000 Review – 64-inch Plasma HDTV

 

Samsung previewed the set PN64D8000 in January as a part of its C8000 series of plasma TVs. The model is a combination of a 64-inch plasma screen and a set of advanced features like 3D, built in Wi-Fi, and enhanced picture quality. These features are...

It also allows you to download a wide range of Samsung apps to enhance the basic functionalities of the TV. You can download the apps based on your choice and requirement, and install the same on the model to use it for multiple purposes. These apps...

Samsung PS64D8000 review

 

For a cinematic, bigscreen viewing experience a giant plasma is hard to beat. The technology has always had its fans, not least because it's simply more cinematic than LED LCD TVs. But if you're on the hunt for a big PDP, one brand that might not...

Crisp, dynamic Full HD images; vibrant 3D; expansive Smart Hub proposition; beautiful to look at; good screen burn provision

Horizontal and vertical image judder; Social Media apps require separate Samsung account

Samsung PS64D8000 review

 

Excellent, great value 3D plasma with Smart TV internet connectivity

Very attractive ; Relatively cheap ; Excellent online features ; Very good 2D pictures ; Sporadically excellent 3D images

Occasional crosstalk during dark scenes ; Average black levels ; Only one free pair of 3D glasses ; Input lag a little high for gaming

The Samsung PS64D8000 plasma is arguably the most eagerly awaited 3D TV so far this year. Its immense 64-inch screen fits nicely into the generally accepted 'bigger is better' mantra, while gas technology has consistently proved superior to LCD or LED...

Samsung Series 8 (PS64D8000) 3D plasma TV

 

Samsung Series 8 TV review: Samsung's best plasma has 3D, Smart TV and a thin design

Excellent picture quality ; Great design ; Impressive sound quality from a thin TV

The Series 6 might be slightly better value ; EPG is slow to load and navigate

The 2011 edition of Samsung's Series 8 plasma is, as we'd expected, an impressive piece of technology. Its sound and visuals are great, and the inclusion of various 'Smart TV' features makes the Series 8 a useful multimedia device as well as a...

Samsung PS64D8000

 

Samsung's 64in PS64D8000 reaffirms in spectacular fashion our increasingly strongly-held belief that when it comes to 3D, size matters.

Great value ; Very good all-round picture quality ; It looks lovely

Crosstalk during dark 3D scenes ; Marginal colour issues ; Only comes with one pair of 3D glasses

With its glamour-puss looks, cutting-edge online functionality and above all generally high performance standards, Samsung’s PS64D8000 is a brilliantly affordable big-screen option for people unable or unwilling to pay for the extra qualities -...

Samsung PS64D8000 64in plasma 3D TV

 

Review With Samsung's domination of the LED TV market all but complete (bwahahaha!) it's perhaps easy to forget the brand is a major purveyor of plasma screens too. Its current largest is the 64in D8000, which with stand weighs in at over 38kg and...

64-inches of plasma panel with all the trimmings.
