Samsung PN59D8000 3D Plasma Review

Plasma TV Buying Guide
21 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Audio Output Quality: Sound quality is much better on this 1.5" plasma than on similar depth LED-LCD TVs – even Samsungs. Why, I have no idea. The 15W X 15W speakers deliver a richer, fuller sound than most TVs these days. There was plenty of volume to fill a large room at the 50% level.

Samsung PN59D8000 Review

Digitaltrends
7 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Given Samsung’s strong brand and the PN59D8000’s excellent performance and slim design, we think it is entirely possible that this TV could redefine the public’s perception of plasma TV technology. If that happens, the divergence in price between plasma and LCD could close significantly.
  • Pros: Superb color accuracy, Excellent black levels and brightness, Built-in Wi-Fi, Thin and light (for a plasma), Bluetooth QWERTY remote
  • Cons: Some motion artifacts, Unattractive stand, No Amazon Instant Video app

Samsung PN59D8000 3D Plasma HDTV

Sound & Vision Magazine
27 October 2011
  • Excerpt: We’ve said it before: Plasmas are the sand-in-the-face-at-the-beach, wallflower, last-kid-picked members of the flat-panel team. LCDs clearly dominate today’s HDTV market. But plasmas are also the Cinderella stepsister whose beauty becomes obvious when you really look for it.
