Samsung PN60E6500EF

 

Bright panel. Solid black levels. Built-in Wi-Fi. Out-of-the-box 3D with glasses

Only three HDMI ports. Flesh tones appear slightly off without color calibration

Samsung's PNE6500EF series of 3D plasma HDTVs combine top-notch picture quality, loads of features, and reasonable prices into a very tempting package.

Samsung PNE6500 series information: The review below is based on our time spent with the 60-inch PN60E6500 TV. However, the observations made also apply to the 51-inch PN51E6500 in the E6500 series. Samsung says that sets offer identical features (save...

Tremendous black levels ; Excellent shadow detail ; Comprehensive picture controls ; Full suite of Internet apps

Minor brightness limitations ; Some loss of black-level performance in bright rooms ; Slightly reflective screen

For movie lovers with even moderate ambient light control, this TV is an outstanding choice and comes highly recommended.

Samsung PNE6500 review: Samsung PNE6500

 

The Samsung E6500 plasma TV offers some of the best black levels we've seen at this or any other price. The TV offers excellent value for money, particularly the 51-inch model. Its styling mostly lacks ostentation -- apart from the stand -- and will...

Despite the deep blacks, the E6500 isn't able to get as bright as other TVs and so contrast suffers ever so slightly. The TV is merciless with noisy sources and presents them as is.

The Samsung E6500 series is an excellent television that offers classy looks, outstanding picture quality, and a great price.

Samsung's not-quite-flagship plasma still delivers flagship-quality performance.

Samsung PN60E6500 Review – 60-inch Plasma HDTV

Great value 60-inch plasma that brings down both the price and the house with its all-round performance

Excellent 3D Blu-ray ; Upscaling of SD sources ; Smart Hub interface ; Freeview HD & Freesat HD

Samsung PS60E6500

 

Samsung's latest mid-range 60-inch plasma TV is a serious bargain.

Outstanding value for money ; Excellent all-round picture quality ; Class-leading online service

Black levels not as deep as some Panasonic plasmas ; A few too many rubbish online apps among the good stuff ; Occasional stuttering with 3D

The Samsung PS60E6500 is one of the biggest and most pleasant TV surprises of the year. Not only is it far and away Samsung’s best plasma TV yet, but it’s arguably our favourite Samsung TV of 2012, period. Especially given how cheap it is.

"Excellent TV!"

 

This is truly an excellent TV. I've owned several HDTV's including the vaunted Pioneer Kuro KRP-500m. This Samsung is by far my favorite. The picture quality is fantastic. I've been watching the Movie preset with no further adjustments. Color is...

Great TV for the price!

 

TV is great, I would buy another and would recommend it. It's one of the largest and cheapest smart TV's I could find. So far I'm very happy with my purchase. I did however do a proper "break in" for the first 100 hours. It was tough to not just plug...

Great looking, great picture, very bright, good 3d, comes with a pair of 3d glasses
