Samsung PN51F8500 Review

 

Models in Samsung F8500 series

Stunning black levels ; Great shadow detail ; Brightest plasma yet ; Spectacular color ; Attractive design

Expensive ; Over-featured ; Steep learning curve

The F8500 plasma is one of those TVs that you don’t want to miss out on purchasing now, or you’ll be regretting it for years to come. It’s just that good.

Samsung plasma series 8 PS51F8500ST review

 

The feature set is a mirror of the brand's high-end LED models, and features twin terrestrial and satellite tuners, opening the door to some nice second screen applications.

Overall, we rate the PS51F8500ST as a class act. There are some minor niggles, and the price is certainly high, but its over performance is polished and as a connected proposition this plasma positively shines

Samsung PS51F8500

 

Samsung piles the heat on Panasonic with this stellar 51-inch plasma TV.

Spectacular picture quality ; Remarkably sophisticated Smart TV engine ; Loads of video streaming apps

Minor brightness instability during dark scenes ; Smart interface can be a bit confusing at times ; Minor motion fizzing with brightness levels set high

To see how the PS51F8500 pictures hold up, however, head to the next page.

Samsung PS51F8500

 

The Samsung PS51F8500 is a top-class plasma TV: it isn't cheap – but you get what you pay for

Terrific picture packed with fine detail and strong contrasts ; Natural colour palette ; Strong blacks ; Impressive range of features ; Decent sound

Voice and gesture controls still frustrate ; Some rivals produce a more overtly impressive picture

I would buy it again!

 

After a lot of reviewing of TV specs I decided on the plasma and not the LED one. I am not disappointed with this TV as it is great. The most beautiful picture I've seen on a TV. I've owned a few and am extremely pleased with this choice.
