Plasma TV Buying Guide

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.
Excerpt: Samsung's PN59D8000 Plasma Smart TV is targeted towards the consumer who who wants to use their livingroom display for than watching TV and movies. With this one purchase, you essentially get a TV and a functional Home Theater PC in one attractive package.
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
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.

Pros: Excellent picture quality, Great design, Impressive sound quality from a thin TV
Cons: The Series 6 might be slightly better value, EPG is slow to load and navigate
