Samsung PN51D8000


Slick design with a thin panel. Superb picture quality with excellent shadow detail. Includes 3D support, built-in Wi-Fi, and a wide selection of services and apps. Useful remote with a QWERTY keyboard and both IR and Bluetooth connectivity

Expensive. Not energy efficient

While it's not for the thin of wallet or flimsy of fuse box, the Samsung PN51D8000 is an excellent, full-featured 3D plasma HDTV that delivers plenty of bang for its significant buck.

Samsung PN51D8000 Plasma 3D TV Review


Last year, I gave our Highly Recommended rating to the PN50C8000, Samsung's 2010 top of the line plasma TV. And I like this year's successor even better.

Samsung Series 8 (PS51D8000) 3D plasma TV


Samsung Series 8 TV review: Samsung's best plasma has 3D, Smart TV and a thin design

Excellent picture quality ; Great design ; Impressive sound quality from a thin TV

The Series 6 might be slightly better value ; EPG is slow to load and navigate

The 2011 edition of Samsung's Series 8 plasma is, as we'd expected, an impressive piece of technology. Its sound and visuals are great, and the inclusion of various 'Smart TV' features makes the Series 8 a useful multimedia device as well as a...

Samsung PS51D8000


Samsung?s flagship 51in plasma TV is a worthy, better looking and cheaper alternative to Panasonic?s P50VT30.

Superb value ; Gorgeous design and interface ; Brilliant 2D picture quality

A little crosstalk with 3D ; Colours could be better out of the box

While the PS51D8000?s 3D pictures aren?t perfect, they?re still well above average by the standards of the 3D world at large. As such, they join with its terrific 2D picture quality and some well rounded, potent audio in making the PS51D8000 an almost...

Samsung PS51D8000


Terrific sharpness and detail, superb 3D, great range of web content, lovely styling

2D pictures are too warm, contrast is lacking, motion could be better

It’s the 3D addict’s TV of choice, but Samsung’s D8000 isn’t the best all-rounder

Samsung PS51D8000


Samsung's flagship plasma TV represents a delicious compromise. It's got the second best online dimension, after Sony's Bravia Internet Video platform, which is too often strapped to TVs with lacklustre 3D pictures. And the second best 3D performance,...

Smart Hub, 3D, Explore 3D app, Freeview HD, Freesat HD, record-to-USB

Smart Hub can be slow, panel lacks contrast, 3D glasses not included

Svelte and with decent audio and a versatility that extends even to impressive 3D, this 51-inch plasma makes for an excellent value home cinema screen. It might not be up there with the very best from Panasonic’s arsenal of 3D plasmas in terms of...

Samsung PS51D8000 review


Clean, comfortable 3D and smart TV on a plasma screen

Attractive user interface ; 3D images ; Dual HD tuners ; Built-in Wi-Fi

Smart Hub too slow ; Average contrast for 2D ; Loses web connection

Forget Samsung's bevy of super-slim and much-marketed LED TVs - it's actually the brand's plasmas that see it at the peak of its powers.

Samsung D8000 (PS51D8000) 51 Inch 3D Plasma TV Review


We take a look at Samsung's latest 3D plasma TV

Reference greyscale performance after calibration ; Reference colour accuracy after calibration ; 10 point white balance control ; Colour Management System ; Freeview HD built in ; Impressive internet platform ; Very well designed menu system ; Superb...

Black levels and dynamic range could be better ; Some PWM noise ; 10 point white balance control can be problematic to use ; Occasional instances of crosstalk ; The input lag could be better ; 3D glasses might be a bit fragile ; Only a basic remote is...

There is much to recommend about the Samsung PS51D8000, it is attractively designed and well built and is capable of some excellent 2D performance. It is a shame that the UK model doesn't include the premium remote control that is being shipped with...

Samsung PS51D8000


Fantastic picture and very immersive 3D quality. All the ports we could possibly want especially with it having four HDMI ports. Very good black contrast and still great in daylight. The best part is easily the price.

None, it's fantastic for the price!
