Samsung PN59D8000 Review

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. Right now, we’re seeing a street price for this TV at around $1,800.

  • Cons: Some motion artifacts, Unattractive stand, No Amazon Instant Video app

The built-in Web browser isn't perfect and we'd definitely prefer a notebook if one was close to hand, and some of the features are a little imperfect, but the Series is is nonetheless a big step forward from the...
  • 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
