The Samsung F8500 Plasma TV allows you to experience the deepest blacks and the brightest whites we have ever produced*. Thanks to Samsung’s New Cell technology, this plasma TV delivers similar brightness levels as regular LED TVs and blacks so deep that only plasma technology can produce. The F8500’s unique design perfectly blends beautiful looks with the functionality of a powerful TV. It comes with Samsung’s Smart Evolution to help you keep your TV up to date, and the advanced Smart Interaction even lets you control your TV with your voice or hand gestures. The dark titan metal colour and ultra-slim frame highlight the futuristic design. The F8500 is more than a TV; it’s a work of art.

"This is my second Plasma TV and compared to the old one the colors on this one is far richer giving the pictures a more realistic look, especially in HD. I am just starting to use the Smart TV feature and finding that I use the web browser more than I thought I would. Though not a complaint, would recommend investing in the wireless keyboard. Using the remote gets a little annoying when trying to type. Also love the on TV camera for Skype calls. Picture comes across crystal clear, but would recommend if you are going to use skype plug the TV straight into the network and don’t use the wireless feature. When I first tested Skype using wireless the picture became choppy from time-to-time at both ends.
A couple of reviews mentioned hearing a buzz, but for the two TV’s I had (first one had a scratch on the screen) I did not hear any buzzing noise.
My only complaint is the TV does put out some heat when on for a long period of time. Don’t mind in the winter, but was heating up the apartment during the summer months."
Pros: Bright display, Realistic color
Cons: does put out a lot of heat

I would recommend this to a friend!
"I had LED TV which got replaced with this plasma. F8500 is a great TV with deep blacks and vibrant colors in addition to the latest Samsung SMART platform features. But most importantly, the picture on this set is very bright compared to other plasmas which was the main reason for me to actually consider plasma TV at this time."
Pros: Bright display, Realistic color, Lightweight, deep blacks
