Conclusion: The Samsung E6500 series plasmas are, without a doubt, one of the best available values in high-performance televisions. While there are one or two competing plasma models that have a slight performance edge in bright-room settings, we can’t think of a set at this price point that can offer black levels and shadow detail quite as impressive as the E6500.
Pros: Tremendous black levels, Excellent shadow detail, Comprehensive picture controls, Full suite of Internet apps
Cons: Minor brightness limitations, Some loss of black-level performance in bright rooms, Slightly reflective screen
Conclusion: A very good, but not a great plasma, this 60-incher still steals a march on similarly-sized LCD/LED TVs on versatility, picture quality and value. Some minor issues with motion and brightness aside, this app-packed, media-savvy giant is a fine all-rounder that excels with 3D. If you're set on achieving a 60-inch screen and you want a 3D telly, the best option is a plasma.
