Samsung PS64F8500

 

Samsung's first plasma TV of 2013 is a movie-fan's dream come true.

Spectacularly bright yet also contrast-rich pictures ; Outstanding suite of online video services ; Potent audio system

Some dithering noise in dark scenes ; Occasional brightness 'jumps ; Smart interface can be inscrutable

As with pretty much all aspects of Samsung’s latest Smart interface, though, it would have been hugely helpful if Samsung had provided users with a bit more assistance on how to use the voice recognition system, rather than just expecting consumers to...

Samsung PS64F8500 review

 

According to the current AV buzz, plasma TV technology is on its death bed. Having spent a week with Samsung's sensational new PS64F8500 plasma TV, though, I can't help but think that plasma has never felt more alive.

Jaw-dropping 2D images; very good 3D performance; not fazed by ambient light; VOD-heavy Smart hub ; Lows: Minor floating blacks; some dithering during dark scenes; it ain't cheap; rather retro design ; Performance: 5/5

Minor floating blacks; some dithering during dark scenes; it ain't cheap; rather retro design

Samsung PS64F8500 review

 

Samsung's 64-inch TV sees the Korean brand making a big step forward with its plasma picture quality

Remarkably bright for plasma ; Excellent black levels ; Powerful smart TV platform ; Very good sound quality

Dithering in dark areas ; Smart system can confuse ; Minor initial image retention ; Minor 3D crosstalk interference

The PS64F8500 is easily Samsung's most aggressive assault yet on Panasonic's traditional dominance of the plasma TV market

Samsung PS64F8500 Plasma TV Review

 

The Samsung PS64F8500 is yet another extremely impressive plasma television from the Korean manufacturer, representing the boldest (and forgive us for saying it, but brightest) move yet from the company when it comes to plasma. It’s without a doubt the...

Samsung PS64F8500 (F8500) Plasma TV Review

 

We get a first look at Samsung's new flagship Plasma 3D TV, the extremely smart and very bright F8500.

Excellent black levels and shadow detail ; Very good contrast ratio and dynamic range ; Lack of PWM noise and clean looking images ; Excellent out-of-the-box greyscale and colour ; Reference greyscale and colour after calibration ; Reference level 3D...

Some dither noise in darker elements of the picture ; Limited vertical viewing angles ; HDMI inputs are too close to the edge ; Input lag too high for serious gaming

The Samsung PS64F8500‘s new ‘Magnum’ look may sound a bit but we really like it and think the combination of design and function works perfectly. However we can understand why some people may not appreciate how much space will be required to position...
