Samsung PN51E6500EF

 

Contrary to popular belief, plasma HDTVs aren't dead. They're less energy efficient than their LED-backlit counterparts, but Samsung, Panasonic, and LG continue to make solid plasma screens. Our most recent budget Editors' Choice HDTV was Samsung's...

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 plasma HDTVs combine top-notch picture quality, loads of features, and reasonable prices into a very tempting package.

The Samsung E6500 series is an excellent value

 

It may not be the most stylish TV, but it has great black levels and a great price, too.

The ; 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 suit a variety...

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.

Great TV

 

We are very happy with this TV.

The picture is very sharp and has great fidelity with respect to the color, saturation and vibrance. We played around with the 3D, and it had good depth, but I am not surehow much we will use it. The 2D -> 3D technology does a surprisingly good job...

Reviews on other sites mentioned a buzzing noise. I noticed one, but only because I was looking for it. It is not noticable if you are far enough away from the TV to see the screen. It may be that theirs were defective units ; There is a little glare,...
