Samsung 50" PN50C6500 Plasma HDTV, 1080p


As 50-inch 1080p plasma sets go, the Samsung Series 6500 PN50C6500TF (listed at $1500 on Samsung's site, available for approximately $1200 to $1300 at online stores as of April 10, 2011) delivers all the connected features you could ask for in...

Great connected features and good image quality ; Nice user interface ; Good media playback features

So-so audio ; Very high energy consumption ; No 3D support ; A bit skimpy on inputs

The Samsung Series 6500 PN50C6500TFXZA delivers good image quality and great connected TV features at a reasonable price; but it's an energy hog, has no 3D support, and skimps on inputs.

Samsung PN50C6500 Review – 50-inch Plasma HDTV


If you're searching for a smaller sized 3D SmartTV, this plasma model in Samsung's 6500 line might be just what you're looking for.

Let’s not forget about energy efficiency. Televisions have been under attack lately for the amount of energy many of them waste. But this Samsung line exceeds the Energy 4.0 by approximately over 26% of the minimum requirement. No, this won’t improve...

Samsung PN50C6500 Plasma Review


First we start off with an aesthetically stunning TV model in the C6500. At 1.4" depth and subtle Touch of Color looks this model looks high end through and through. It adds the Samsung Internet Applications and a few other features while forgoing the...

The C6500 presents a much softer picture from standard definition programming such as this scene from the 480i DVD of Fight Club

Samsung 50" PN50C6500 Plasma HDTV, 1080p


The Macworld review is correct in that this HDTV should have more input options and is a gas guzzler. But the picture quality is outstanding; far better than any other product that I carefully considered at this price point -- and my search was...

Excellent picture quality; works seamlessly with Samsung Blueray player

Not enough inputs, poor audio

great picture, great value easy to use


the richness of this plasma really enhances the viewing pleasure. Blu Ray is just the best. With a 50 inch screen and a good sound system. I go to the movies only for the blockbusters. I rarely purchased dvd's but with this new screen I'll be buying...

picture quality is best i have seen vs lcd or led, framing has a very finished look, swivel feature is great! The glare is only an issue if the sunlight directly hits the screen and you don't have other viewing angle options

didn't like the fact you have to buy a wireless plugin to use the samsung apps. that should have been built in and for $80 to boot is why this only gets a 4 star mark. A roku box or apple tv is more bang for the buck

Consumer review by:

Great TV except for screen glare.


Great bang for the buck. I would recommend it for anyone that has no direct sunlight in the room. Sunny Room Windows reflect on the screen vividly forcing you to close blinds or drapes to get good viewing.

Easy to set up. Internet programming updated via download. Easy to find things in menus. Everything seems to work well. Thin profile for wall mount is great

Screen glare in a bright room -- very reflective. No NETFLIX widgit on the internet; maybe this will come with program updates (are you listening Samsung)

great TV


After doing research for two days straight, I finally decided on a plasma, this was my first and im pretty happy with it. I actually bought this locally as they beat even all the online prices for me!

provides awesome picture clarity, blurays look amazing on this TV, no strange motion effects like on LCDs, looks great in my living room, I have it mounted on a TV stand

produces a buzz but then again I can only hear it if the sound is off, I think all plasmas buzz, but some louder than others

Consumer review by:



Incredible picture, I\'m no tv geek but I do know when I see a great picture. The blu-ray is phenomenal looking, PS3 looks great as well and plays just fine.

All the connections options I could ever need","Best looking TV out there","Good Remote Control","Great Picture Quality

Poor Sound Quality
