SMARTHUB DISASTER

joesez, Adorama
11 October 2014
  • Excerpt: The picture is good. the smarthub and ads that popup when I watch TV are the dumbest thing. I paid for connectivity so Samsung can spam my TV with ads. Much cheaper televisions with great pictures and no spam features. created an account to let samsung know how disapposinted I am with their silly software. often use the tv with no network. Figured out how to turn off the yahoo ad app.
  • Pros: Bright display
  • Cons: Did not meet expectations, spam machine

Awsome Picture

  • Excerpt: I got this TV because my old Panasonic plasma TV died after 3 years. I thought the picture was going to be the same . BOY WAS I WRONG. the picture on this TV blows away my old one. the features on this TV are plentiful but I will not even use half of them. over all I love this TV after 1 week of ownership.
  • Pros: Bright display, Great picture
  • Cons: Price a little high

Great plasma and the image will blow your socks off!!!

N. Stephens, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this 51" plasma 3 months ago and am still amazed at the high quality image. I didn't care about having 3D or it being a smart tv but just wanted the best plasma available before they quit making them. Plasma is still the best tv to watch live sports except for maybe an oled that are still way too expensive. Samsung have announced they are winding down production of these sets around November. If you are on the fence get one now before it's too late.

  • Summary: Just picked up this same TV from a friend. The PN51F8500 was manufactured 3.18.2013 and about a couple weeks ago after a year and a few months. A verticle 2" thick black bar with a neighboring thin blue line has appeared on the center of the screen. After my buddy gave me this TV for free to see if I could fix it. A lot of research shows that PLASMA is not a good investment. I would steer clear from this product and any other plasma screen.

  • Summary: It is a disappointment in that it cannot receive a signal via an antenna out here on Cape Cod. I thought we could do it w/o cable, buy alas no luck. Other than that it seems quite capable.

difficult interface

HDviewer, Adorama
13 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Picture quality is great. But the interface is difficult and not intuitive. The remote needs a few more buttons for easy access and quick access to features.
  • Pros: Realistic color
