Samsung PS51D6900 review

 

Samsung doesn't seem to like plasma very much. Every year, the brand's marketing focuses almost exclusively on its latest LED TVs, while its plasma models sneak into stores with little or no fanfare.

Lovely looks; exemplary Smart TV functions; good 2D and 3D pictures; good operating system Lows: Some crosstalk during dark 3D scenes; black levels could be deeper Performance: 4/5 Design: 5/5 Features: 5/5 Overall: 4/5

Samsung PS51D6900 review

 

Top value active 3D TV with impressive Smart TV multimedia capability

Great value ; Good looks ; Impressive 2D and 3D performance ; Expansive feature count ; Lots of multimedia support ; Good online service ; Helpful operating system

Minor crosstalk with 3D ; Average black levels ; No web browser ; Some odd menu organisation

The Samsung PS51D6900 sells for a paltry £1,300, despite its active 3D technology and 51-inch screen.

Samsung PS51D6900 review

 

A great-value plasma TV, with a well-designed user interface and plenty of extra features – the PS51D6900 doesn't have the best image quality we've seen, but it's close

Samsung turns its 3D attentions to plasma, with impressive and startlingly affordable results

Good 3D and 2D pictures ; Exceptional value ; Extensive and well presented online functionality

Black level response could be better ; A little motion judder at times ; No web browser or Skype

Samsung’s PS51D6900 isn’t the last word in plasma picture performance. That honour still belongs comfortably to Panasonic’s 2011 GT30 and VT30 models. What the PS51D6900 most definitely does manage to be, though, is easily the best value 3D screen...

Review: Samsung PS51D6900 The Best Value Plasma Of The Year?

 

Samsung moves 3D from LED to Plasma, and with a few design tweaks, has added an inch to its screen size in this incarnation. It's all courtesy of a shrunken bezel, but does it really make a difference to picture quality?

Samsung PS51D6900 Plasma 3D TV

 

Samsung's PS51D6900 3D TV has been getting some very positive publicity since its launch, so we decided to grab one for ourselves to give it the once over.

If I needed a new TV, I would seriously consider buying the Samsung PS51D6900. The picture quality, screen size and feature set is quite simply breathtaking for the money you pay and it puts to shame certain 3D TVs almost double its price.
