Samsung PS51D8000

CNET
26 December 2011
  • Summary: Stylish looks, top-notch picture performance, great Internet features and strong handling of 3D material make the Samsung PS51D8000 a hugely impressive TV. If you're looking for a big screen with 3D-capable plasma, you'd be crazier than a box of frogs not to check it out.
  • Cons: Black levels could be a tad deeper; 3D performance isn't as good as Panasonic's plasma models.

Samsung PN51D8000 Review

Digitaltrends
8 November 2011
  • Conclusion: Given Samsung’s strong brand and the PN51D8000’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. Samsung’s LED-backlit equivalent, the UN55D8000, currently goes for about $2,500 from the same retailers.
  • Pros: Superb color accuracy, Excellent black levels and brightness, Built-in Wi-Fi, Thin and light (for a plasma), Bluetooth QWERTY remote
  • Cons: Some motion artifacts, Unattractive stand, No Amazon Instant Video app

Samsung PN51D8000

PC Magazine
8 October 2011
  • Conclusion: While it's not for the thin of wallet or flimsy of fuse box, the Samsung PN51D8000 is an excellent, full-featured 3D plasma HDTV that delivers plenty of bang for its significant buck.
  • Pros: Slick design with a thin panel. Superb picture quality with excellent shadow detail. Includes 3D support, built-in Wi-Fi, and a wide selection of services and apps. Useful remote with a QWERTY keyboard and both IR and Bluetooth connectivity.
  • Cons: Expensive. Not energy efficient.

Samsung PS51D8000 review

Pocket Lint
14 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Samsung’s flagship plasma TV represents a delicious compromise. It’s got the second best online dimension, after Sony’s Bravia Internet Video platform, which is too often strapped to TVs with lacklustre 3D pictures. And the second best 3D performance, losing out to Panasonic’s plasmas, which are the best performers, but are blighted by a content-light online service.
  • Pros: Smart Hub, 3D, Explore 3D app, Freeview HD, Freesat HD, record-to-USB
  • Cons: Smart Hub can be slow, panel lacks contrast, 3D glasses not included

  • Excerpt: Forget Samsung's bevy of super-slim and much-marketed LED TVs - it's actually the brand's plasmas that see it at the peak of its powers.

What Hi-Fi?
7 December 2011
  • Excerpt: At just 4cm deep and with that luxurious bezel and pedestal, the Samsung PS51D8000 will attract more envious stares than most other sets. As with its £710 stablemate, the Samsung PS51D495 , the D8000 is a 51in panel. Given its price tag it’s no surprise you get Full HD, as well as extra features such as the company’s new Real Black Filter, Cinema Smooth motion tech and 3D Sound.
  • Pros: Terrific sharpness and detail, superb 3D, great range of web content, lovely styling
  • Cons: 2D pictures are too warm, contrast is lacking, motion could be better

Samsung Series 8 TV review: Samsung's best plasma has 3D, Smart TV and a thin design

Good Gear Guide.au
21 September 2011
  • Summary: The 2011 edition of Samsung's Series 8 plasma is, as we'd expected, an impressive piece of technology. Its sound and visuals are great, and the inclusion of various 'Smart TV' features makes the Series 8 a useful multimedia device as well as a traditional TV. 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
