Samsung PN60E6500


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

"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

"Thank you! Samsung"


Ordered this TV from Crutchfield, based soley off of CNET's review. I am very impressed with the picture quality and CNET's review was spot on for the most part. A bargain at $1600.00. The thing I am suprisingly most impressed with, not ever owning a...

Crisp clear picture (using same settings CNET used while testing)

Not many, if I had one gripe, it would be regular non-HD channels pixilate. The picture is suprisingly bad in non-HD, but you buy a TV like this for its HD capabilities, and they are amazing.

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
