Samsung PN51D8000

 

Slick design with a thin panel. Superb picture quality with excellent shadow detail. Includes 3D support, built-in Wi-Fi, and a wide selection of services and apps. Useful remote with a QWERTY keyboard and both IR and Bluetooth connectivity

Expensive. Not energy efficient

While it's not for the thin of wallet or flimsy of fuse box, the Samsung PN51D8000 is an excellent, full-featured 3D plasma HDTV that delivers plenty of bang for its significant buck.

Samsung PN51D8000 51" Plasma SmartTV Video Review

 

For the past few years we've started asking ourselves "What'simportant in a TV?" Is it the black levels? How thin it is?Color accuracy? Media streaming? Apps? I mean, what is it that peoplelook for in a new flat panel? And more importantly, what should...

Samsung PN51D8000 51" Plasma SmartTV Review

 

We do a video review of the Samsung PN51D8000 51" Plasma SmartTV and find it to be a really stellar performer, with deep, rich blacks and a feature set that allows it to be everything all at once.

Samsung PN51D8000 Plasma 3D TV Review

 

Last year, I gave our Highly Recommended rating to the PN50C8000, Samsung's 2010 top of the line plasma TV. And I like this year's successor even better.

Samsung PS51D8000 - Pocket-lint

 

Samsung's flagship plasma TV represents a delicious compromise. It's got the second best online dimension, after Sony's Bravia Internet Video platform,

Smart Hub, 3D, Explore 3D app, Freeview HD, Freesat HD, record-to-USB

Smart Hub can be slow, panel lacks contrast, 3D glasses not included

Svelte and with decent audio and a versatility that extends even to impressive 3D, this 51-inch plasma makes for an excellent value home cinema screen. It might not be up there with the very best from Panasonic’s arsenal of 3D plasmas in terms of...

Samsung PS51D8000 review

 

Clean, comfortable 3D and smart TV on a plasma screen

Attractive user interface ; 3D images ; Dual HD tuners ; Built-in Wi-Fi

Smart Hub too slow ; Average contrast for 2D ; Loses web connection

Forget Samsung's bevy of super-slim and much-marketed LED TVs - it's actually the brand's plasmas that see it at the peak of its powers.

Samsung Series 8 (PS51D8000) 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 PS51D8000

 

Samsung?s flagship 51in plasma TV is a worthy, better looking and cheaper alternative to Panasonic?s P50VT30.

Superb value ; Gorgeous design and interface ; Brilliant 2D picture quality

A little crosstalk with 3D ; Colours could be better out of the box

While the PS51D8000?s 3D pictures aren?t perfect, they?re still well above average by the standards of the 3D world at large. As such, they join with its terrific 2D picture quality and some well rounded, potent audio in making the PS51D8000 an almost...
