Summary: This TV is incredible. Amazing sharpness, contrast and brightness. It needs an external speaker, just so you know. I took a bit of a gamble and bought from Warehousr Deals and it worked out great. TV is impeccable.
Still the best picture for the money, so get it while you can

Summary: I've had this for a few months and it's by far the best display I've owned. Strengths: Excellent details and picture quality. No discernible artifacts or blurriness. Very clear picture. Good price, at least when I bought mine, for what you get. Unfortunately, plasma is on it's way out.
Without a doubt THE BEST picture quality I have ever experienced

Summary: Without a doubt THE BEST picture quality I have ever experienced. I gave my 51" to my mom because I wanted a larger one before they are all gone, which they probably are by now. Too bad plasmas have to go.
Summary: This is still one of the very best TVs ever sold. The plasma picture is phenomenal, and the TV is loaded with features. I use a surround sound system with the TV most of the time, but when I have used the built in speakers I was impressed, as they are much better than most TV speakers.
Summary: I have enjoyed this TV so far. Had it about a month or so, and I have not experienced any of the buzzing issues some have reported. It does take some playing around with to get the picture right and it is not as bright as LED's.
Summary: This Samsung Plasma TV is the most beautiful TV I've ever seen. Because it's Plasma, it is the last of a dying breed, and that is a shame. The picture quality on this TV is second to none, and watching 3D movies is even more impressive than in theaters.
So glad I found one of these F8500s. It is better than I've imagined and then some. Awesome picture!

Summary: Wow!! So excited to find one of these. I've heard and read nothing but good things about the F8500 and it has lived up to all of my expectations. I was very worried I would get a "buzzer" in regards to many having F8500s with this but I can't hear anything. It's silent and the picture is fantastic!
