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 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...

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 UE55F8505


Koreanske Samsung hviler ikke på laurbærene. I år har de attpåtil lansert en designvariant av designmodellen sin!

Lydkvalitet Vi har ofte gitt Samsung tyn for tynn lyd på TV-ene sine, men i år har de skjerpet seg, og lyden fra 55F8505 er sterk og klar. Det er dessuten relativt enkelt å utvide lydopplevelsen. Samsung tilbyr egne lydplanker med trådløs oppkobling...

Test av Samsung UE55F8505


Koreanska Samsung vilar minsann inte på sina lagrar. I år har de till och med släppt en designvariant av deras designmodell!

Samsung UE55F8505 är en ovanligt läcker TV att titta på, med snygg böjd fot och borstad aluminiumfinish som ger ett intryck av kvalitet. Bildkvaliteten är identisk med den lite billigare F8005-modellen, och det är minsann ingen dålig TV att kopiera....

Det mer påkostade utförandet innebär naturligtvis att du måste betala mer pengar för samma bildkvalitet.

Samsung UE46F8590


Am Bild des Samsung UE46F8590 gibt es in keinerlei Hinsicht etwas auszusetzen. Er liefert ein Top-Bild in allen Bereichen, Schwächen leistet er sich hier nicht. Dabei glänzt er vor allem mit einer sehr schnellen Bildwiederholrate von 1000 Hertz,...

herausragendes Bild in 2D und 3D ; guter Klang ; Komplettausstattung ; komfortable Bedienung mit Sprachsteuerung und Touch-Fernbedienung ; hochwertiges Design

hoher Preis

Besonders günstig ist der Samsung UE46F8590 beileibe nicht, auf der anderen Seite bietet er jedoch neueste Technik und durchweg Leistungen auf erstklassigem Niveau. Neben toller Ausstattung, einfacher Bedienung und einem herausragenden Bild in 2D und...

"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
