  • Summary: However, Vizio's E-Series TVs have changed the value equation for 2014. Those sets, such as the 55-inch Vizio E550i-B2 (Est. $680) and 60-inch Vizio E600i-B3 (Est. $800) are still handily outperformed by the Samsung PNF8500 plasma's, but are considerably less expensive and produce a very nice picture for an LED TV.
  • Pros: Great picture quality, More features than any other HDTV, Breakthrough performance in well-lit rooms
  • Cons: Expensive for a plasma TV

PC Magazine
15 July 2013
  • Conclusion: The Samsung PNF8500 series is a top-shelf plasma HDTV line that delivers outstanding color quality, solid 2D and 3D imagery, and very dark blacks. You'll shell out some big bucks for this model though, and you may want to pick up a universal remote while you're at it.
  • Pros: Very dark blacks. Accurate colors that pop. Strong feature set. Good 3D depth.
  • Cons: Pricey. Not energy-efficient. Funky remote.

Samsung PN60F8500 3D Plasma HDTV

Sound & Vision Magazine
14 June 2013
  • Excerpt: When Samsung launched its new line of plasma HDTVs at last January’s CES, we were impressed. Those early demos indicated improved black levels and overall good performance. We were surprised to find later that the prices, though not exactly “Attention, K-Mart shoppers!” specials, aren’t Beverly Hills exclusives, either. From what we see here, these new Samsung plasmas, while unlikely to alter the market dominance of LCD, are welcome additions to the battle.

Samsung PN60F8500 Review

  • Conclusion: Until we’ve thoroughly tested the Panasonic VT60, we can’t declare any winners in the battle for this year’s best TV, but we can say that Samsung’s F8500 is going to give the Panny a serious run for its money. Though the F8500 is a little rich on novelty features for our taste (we could do without voice commands and gesture control entirely) it’s Smart Hub TV interface is one of the best platforms available.
  • Pros: Stunning black levels, Great shadow detail, Brightest plasma yet, Spectacular color, Attractive design
  • Cons: Expensive, Over-featured, Steep learning curve
