Samsung PN64F8500


The Samsung F8500 series continues the tradition beautifully, delivering the best picture quality we've ever tested in a Samsung TV. It's not quite as good overall as Panasonic's best 2013 efforts, such as the like-priced VT60 , but it does offer one...

The Samsung PNF8500 series exhibits outstanding picture quality with a class-leading bright-room image, exceedingly deep black levels, very good shadow detail, highly accurate colors and superb off-angle and uniformity characteristics; mind-boggling...

Extremely expensive; correct film cadence requires sacrificing some black level; remote lacks numerous direct commands; imperfect cable box control; consumes more power than LCD TVs.

Samsung's best-performing TV ever, the PNF8500 series pushes the plasma picture quality envelope, especially in bright rooms.

Samsung F8500 TV


The Samsung F8500 is the brightest plasma TV ever, and is even able to challenge some LEDs. While its blacks don't beat plasmas from Panasonic (like the ), they are still very good. The only downside is the anti-glare filter produces some slight...

Brighter than any plasma. It is the only plasma that can be put in a bright room. ; Good anti-glare filter with very few reflections. ; Low input lag.

Although its blacks are good, they aren't as good as in equivalent models from Panasonic.

Samsung PN60F8500 Plasma TV Review


Samsung's flagship is a perfect argument for the superiority of plasma technology.

That may sound like effusive praise, but it's the truth. Within the realm of picture quality, Samsung's F8500 is absolutely awesome. The brightness this plasma achieves is worth praise alone, but its deep black levels and the accuracy of its colors are...

Samsung PN64F8500


The Samsung PNF8500 series is a top-shelf plasma HDTV line that delivers outstanding color quality, solid 2D and 3D imagery, and very dark blacks. You'll shell out some big bucks for this model though, and you may want to pick up a universal remote...

There’s a lot to like about the Samsung PN60F8500AF. Amazing picture quality, inky blacks, and a robust feature set put this set at the top of its class and earn it our Editors’ Choice for big-screen plasma HDTVs. Be forewarned though, you’ll have to...

"Amazing picture (I mean really amazing), even in a bright room"


I have good hearing (musician, 51, good hearing). I can hear the high pitched whine from a HDD spinning, or an old CRT - from across the room - in a room with two LOUD fans running. Old *CRT* sets are just painful. The Samsung F8500 has (from what I've...

The picture quality.

worst "buzz" of any PLASMA ever made. FIne if you're deaf & don't have a dog

"A truly Superb TV"


I purchased the 51" version of this Samsung Plasma TV. I used the overall picture setting recommendations noted in this review and the picture quality, color, etc. is outstanding. I would also like to note that since this review was written, Samsung is...

Great picture, easy set-up, tons of features, well made and great looking, even when it's not turned on

tons of features, many of which I'll likely never use

"Remote won't work and service at Samsung not reliable."


Called support center and was told the TV needs a software upgrade and was told it would take 2 to 6 weeks for each update to come in the mail. It's been over a month now and the last time I spoke with someone about this they said they would call back...

Great picture, great performance

Remote won't turn tv on at all. That is all I use it for as Samsung will not allow other universal remotes to turn their product on. Now I have to reach behind to turn it on and off feels like 1960 in 2014.

Internet connectivity is excellent. It looks great. Images/colors appear washed out but I've yet to fully calibrate the tv...I hope that improves things otherwise I will be disappointed with the image quality.
