Without a doubt THE BEST picture quality I have ever experienced
23 January 2015
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. I just hope the new 4k TVs can come match the DEPTH of the picture as well as color saturations.
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. I find myself using movie mode or standard mode and usually have the cell light at the upper end of range. Overall...very satisfied...especially for $997. Get one if you can!
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. I hope this TV lasts many years, as it will likely be a long time before any new TV technology is released that can beat plasma.
Summary: This is the best TV I have owned. The picture quality is great. I just use the basic remote that comes with the TV so I can't comment on the fancy voice-activated remote. I am surprised that it works so well on my bright great room which has a lot of windows.
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 far, everyone who has seen our new Samsung TV has raved about it. I consider this to be one of the best purchases I've ever made... and how often do we get to say something like that?
So far so good. The people that are complaining about the hum ...

Summary: So far so good. The people that are complaining about the hum have never owned an old school CRT before or plasma TV before. All plasmas have a slight hum when the picture is turned on and a bright white screen is displayed. I have four plasmas and they all have a slight hum from time to time. It's usually during a commercial when I mute the audio. I am a huge audiophile and it's never caused an issue for me. These plasma TVs also make great space heaters.
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! I have a nice 4k TV and this TV is just as good and if not better than my 4k TV. The blacks are awesome but the picture is just smooth and uniform.
