Samsung PN64D8000

 

Superb color accuracy ; Excellent black levels and brightness ; Built-in Wi-Fi ; Thin and light (for a plasma) ; Bluetooth QWERTY remote

Some motion artifacts ; Unattractive stand ; No Amazon Instant Video app

Given Samsung’s strong brand and the PN64D8000’s excellent performance and slim design, we think it is entirely possible that the Samsung PN64D8000 could redefine the public’s perception of plasma TV technology.

Samsung PN64D8000

 

For the last couple of years it has seemed that our job as TV reviewers comes down to determining which TV is better: the best Panasonic plasma or the best Samsung plasma. In 2011 the vessel bearing the Samsung flag is the PND8000, and while...

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.

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...

"The Search is Over"

 

First off, let me say that I am extremely picky when it comes to HDTVs. I feel if I have to shell out over 3k for a high tech gadget, it might as well be perfect or near perfect. Let me exhale and say, that the search is finally over...I hope.

+ Picture is simply stunning, colors are rich and vibrant

- Buzz when the TV turns on

Consumer review by:

"Brightness Issues!"

 

Paid way too much to be having problems with the auto-brightness. Even with the ECO mode turned off the black areas of a picture change brightness back and forth.

Very nice picture when there is not problems with the brightness.

My older Philips Plasma has less problems then this one. Out of the box the original screen had a large black line in the middle. It took two weeks to get the screen replaced. Now I am having issues with the brightness controls.

"Amazing, highly recommend."

 

This is an aboslutely amazing Plasma TV, It was either this or the 65 VT by panasonic and I went with this. I have had no problems with pops or peeling screens. When I compared it next to the VT I could not notice the PQ difference. This actually...
