  • Although I've only reviewed a handful of HDTVs for Tom's Hardware, I've spent many years testing, calibrating, and comparing hundreds of displays of every conceivable type. For pure image quality, nothing surpasses plasma in my opinion. I am aware of what...

  • Fantastic Picture Quality, Smart TV Capability, Superb Inky Black Levels, Aesthetics, Upgradable Quad Core Processor, Touchpad Remote Control,
  • Exceptionally Expensive, Motion Judder Canceller Issue
  • With close to six months of use in my den, I can easily say that Samsung's PN64F8500 Plasma Smart TV is an excellent TV with pretty well every feature any buyer would appreciate. If you are looking into buying a large TV that will not have to be upgr...

  • Great picture quality, More features than any other HDTV, Breakthrough performance in welllit rooms
  • Expensive for a plasma TV
  • The Samsung PNF8500 is a landmark plasma TV. Picture quality is stunning -- separated from the best-performing plasma TVs by the tiniest of margins. More important, that picture quality is just as good in well-lit spaces, something that no plasma TV past ...

  • F8500 offers all of Samsung's Smart TV features, including the questionable implementation of voice and gesture controls that we find very gimmicky. Samsung's 2013 Smart TV platform has improved a lot, including some apps, but the overall user experience ...

  • Superb picture quality, Wide variety of smart TV apps, Ability to download lots more apps, Upgrade capability via plugin box, Active shutter 3D glasses with Bluetooth/RF sync, Builtin camera for Skype, Builtin WiFi, Content streaming to Samsung smartphones and tablets,
  • The whole remote control system leaves much to be desired (touch pad, gesture and voice control), No analog audio output/headphone output (seems to be a trend these days), Nonrechargeable 3D glasses come standard (rechargeable ones cost extra),
  • While Samsung touts the F8500's high-tech features, such as the touch pad remote, the facial and arm/hand gesture recognition and voice recognition, for me these features weren't nearly as compelling as the overall picture quality I experienced. Samsu...

  • Very dark blacks. Accurate colors that pop. Strong feature set. Good 3D depth.
  • Pricey. Not energyefficient. Funky remote
  • The Samsung PNF8500 series is a top-shelf plasma HDTV line that delivers outstanding color quality, solid 2D and 3D imagery, and very dark blacks. You'll shell out some big bucks for this model though, and you may want to pick up a universal remote while...

  • I had some issues with the Samsung's 3D performance, though it's likely to satisfy all but the most rabid 3D purist. But 2D on the set was a joy to watch, with rich color, superb resolution, and subjectively fine black levels and overall image saturation...

  • Stunning black levels, Great shadow detail, Brightest plasma yet, Spectacular color, Attractive design
  • Expensive, Overfeatured, Steep learning curve
  • Until we've thoroughly tested the Panasonic VT60, we can't declare any winners in the battle for this year's best TV, but we can say that Samsung's F8500 is going to give the Panny a serious run for its money. Though the F8500 is a little rich on novelt...

  • The Samsung PNF8500 series exhibits outstanding picture quality with a class-leading bright-room image, exceedingly deep black levels, very good shadow detail, highly accurate colors and superb off-angle and uniformity characteristics; mind-boggling fe...
  • Extremely expensive; correct film cadence requires sacrificing some black level; remote lacks numerous direct commands; imperfect cable box control; consumes more power than LCD TVs.
  • Samsung's best-performing TV ever, the PNF8500 series pushes the plasma picture quality envelope, especially in bright rooms.

  Published: 2013-04-11, review by: audioholics.com

  • Abstract:  The F8500 series is Samsung’s 2013 flagship plasma TV line and is available in three different sizes, 64” (PN64F8500), 60” (PN60F8500), and 51” (PN51F8500). There’s no doubt that these are nice TVs, but they're also extremely expensive (over $4k for th...
