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.
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.
Pros: Sharp HD pictures; impressive 3D performance; Warm and natural colour tones; Good sound quality; Great Internet features.
Cons: Black levels could be a tad deeper; 3D performance isn't as good as Panasonic's plasma models.
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.
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
Conclusion: Svelte and with decent audio and a versatility that extends even to impressive 3D, this 51-inch plasma makes for an excellent value home cinema screen. It might not be up there with the very best from Panasonic’s arsenal of 3D plasmas in terms of ultimate quality, but at this price nor should it be.
