Summary: Had this for a few months now. Beast of a HDTV. Amazing black level, picture quality, and the audio quality is pretty good too although I'd use my custom 5.1 system for serious viewing. The downside is that the smart feature is a bit slow but that's beside the point. As pure picture quality you absolutely cannot go wrong with this HDTV.
Summary: I appreciate all the bells and whistles such as the ability to use my tablet to project, watch and control youtube video on this tv. I like being able to watch movies on this tv from a memory card or answer skype calls using the built in microphone and camera. There are other capabilities I haven't even tried yet (download the user's manual or watch a youtube video on this product). Most of all I enjoy the outstanding picture it presents.
Summary: Totally awesome - amazing quality!!! Love that I can display photos off my smart phone instantly. Need to figure out how to not have TV power on once electric has been restored in a power outage.
Summary: Excellent plasma TV. Picture Quality is unbeatable in the plasma realm. Only topped possibly by the new 4K displays. The features on this TV are mind-blowing and lots of fun. Everything the pro reviewers say about this set is true. I have owned mine for a couple months now and have nothing to complain about. With all the picture adjustments available you can easily dial in a picture that will blow your mind. There are several preset picture modes available.
Summary: This is a fantastic tv. I prefered the samsung f8500 but the ugly bezel and the buzzing was just to much. The picture and video quality is amazing on this tv just wish it got a little bit brighter like the samsung plasma.
Summary: *Warning* - I'm about to gush about this TV. If you're looking for some cons to dissuade you from purchasing this TV, you probably won't find them in this review. I don't even know where to begin with this TV. The picture? The Apps? The Bezel? This TV is just all around awesome. I'm just so glad I was able to get one before it was discontinued. Picture - The picture on this TV is incredible. Deep blacks, bright white and colors, it's just a joy to watch.
Summary: I sold TV's for years. I know anything and everything about the technology used in making them. There are three things to always keep in mind when purchasing a TV: 1. If you can control the lighting in the room, plasma televisions are 98% the best choice. 2. Black levels are ALWAYS better on a quality plasma, compared to LCD/LED. 3. Pioneer Elite plasma's are, hands-down, the best flat-panel television ever made.
