Summary: What a great TV. I got very lucky and picked one up on Sale. I wish I could have gotten the 64" but 1k extra for 4 inches not worth it to me. The reviews are true this TV has amazing Picture quality. Before I bought this TV, I bought a Samsung UN65HU7250 curved. Was a nice TV but over priced, the TV had a lot of bleeding and the blacks were not great.

Summary: Picture lives up to ALL the hype, but random disconnections from my home wifi-network can get annoying. Also haven't figured out how to use my Yamaha speakers and the TV speakers to work at the same time (without lag), and Samsung customer reps will only assist with Samsung product questions. But I do love not having to rely on a "middle man" (like Apple TV or western digital) to connect me to the internet/apps (Spotify, Netflix, Web etc) or to my home media collection.
Summary: I bought this product on the basis of the CNET review and other reviews. The picture is the best I have ever seen in either LED or Plasma TV. My close friend Steve who purchased a similar panasonic product last year claims that the Samsung picture is better than on his product. There are some warts on the product but nothing that is worth packaging it up and sending it back within the 30 day purchase period (no malfunctions showed up, just product bugs.
Summary: I own a Kuro, had the VT60 for a month and now have the 8500. The Kuro is still spectacular but it is 50" and I wanted a larger TV. I bought the VT60 based on expert reviews. The blacks were very good as was the sound but for me, there was always something missing. I went to BB to compare the two and watched the VT and 8500 side by side for quite a while.
Summary: I got the Asia version of this TV which is identical except for the power rating (Power: 220V). So far I am very satisfied and impressed by this TV. It has great picture quality and looks pretty sleek sitting on its elliptical chrome stand. After much research and reading reviews here, I decided to go with this item because: 1. It is cheaper than LED of the same size and class 2. Its got very good brightness rating that other plasmas don't 3.
Summary: Samsung PN64F8500 64-Inch 1080p 600Hz 3D Smart Plasma HDTV I am a Panny fan , I have bought 5 Panasonic tvs since 2001, and my first HDTV was in 2004 which I still have till today. The tv was abused and ran for at least 12 hrs a day for 6 straight years, and 2 years ago I got the 55gt50 to replace it in the great room . I recognize that Samsungs are good tvs but I thought I would never buy one.
Summary: As said in other reviews the remote is difficult to use. Maybe I am new but the voice prompt keep popping up without being asked and the when I say Close Guide it changes the channel. The TV is connected to the cable box with HDMI but keeps forgetting this is the primary source and when I turn it on I have to select the HDMI again one out of three times. Once the TV is on I just use the cable remote for the channel.
Summary: Upgraded from a samsung 55' 8000 led model to a 64' plasma,the difference in brightness going to a plasma was very noticeable.I find the picture quality to be comparable to the LED during the day,but at night when my living room is dark is when the picture quality really shines,in terms of color and blacks.I also find the 3d quality to be very good,just as good as going to the movies.I had thought that was an option I wasn't really going to care about,but the 3d movies...
