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 PN60E6500


For many years, Samsung was the answer to the question, "Which LCD should I get?" While the company also manufactured plasmas, they seemingly weren't a priority for Samsung or the public. But beginning in 2011 with the superb D8000 and D7000 , for...

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


The model is one of the inexpensive 3D HD TV sets launched by Samsung. Along with sporting a 60-inch screen and ultra-slim bezel design, the device also comes with active 3D compatibility and 1080p HD resolution along with a set of advanced networking...

The device is further designed by the manufacturer with built in Wi-Fi, web browser and Smart TV integration. However, it lacks the some of the features supported by the higher end plasma HDTV models including dual core processor, built in speakerphone...

Samsung PS60E6500 review


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

Can't customise Smart Hub ; Motion judder ; Only three HDMI ins ; Remote not responsive enough

A very good, but not a great plasma, this 60-incher still steals a march on similarly-sized LCD/LED TVs on versatility, picture quality and value.

Samsung PS60E6500 review


Great picture quality across both 2D and 3D, excellent smart TV features and a humungous screen size for a relatively low asking price make the Samsung PS60E6500 one of the best TVs around.

Great 2D and 3D pictures ; Good audio quality ; Strong lineup of smart apps ; Great value for money

Only three HDMI ports ; Design is slightly dated

This is a very strong TV from Samsung, especially when you consider that you're getting top-notch smart TV features, strong 2D and 3D performance and a humongous screen for a relatively affordable price.

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.

"AWESOME Plasma TV!"


Bought this tv as a replacement to my Toshiba 50" DLP television. When the television was delivered to my house it took me literally 5 minutes to put together the stand, hook up the HDMI cables and turn it on.

Picture quality is excellent

No cons for me

"It is about the whole package"


I spent months debating about this set, and the Panasonic ST50, driving myself utterly insane, and roaming several AV focused sites, such as HDTVtest, AVS, and AV. When not researching online, I would go out to several stores and demo the respective...

+ Picture quality is amazing

- Speakers are not very good
