Customer Reviews for 60" 8500 Series Smart Plasma TV (2013)

60" 8500 Series Smart Plasma TV (2013)

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 TV has beautiful picture and vivid colors. If you're planning on getting a plasma then look no further than this stunning Samsung TV. I've owned a few samsungs in the past and they just keep getting better and better with each generation of models. I'm so impressed with this model that I have recommended it to 2 other people. If you want realistic colors and sharp picture quality then this TV is for you."
Pros: Realistic color

Great picture

"Have this TV since August 2013, and decided to review it. It has a great picture, sometimes jaw dropping, close to OLED, but you do get the plasma buzz, and sometimes after an firmware update it looks like everything has to settle first before the picture is up to par again? I had a technician out in November 2013, just to hear that there was nothing wrong with the set, but he came a week after I noticed it. I think there are some flaws, but its almost perfect. Samsung customer service is also great in my opinion, they are always willing to send someone over if there is an issue. This TV will be mine for the next 5 years until OLED is affordable. I can highly recommend it, but don't be afraid to change some of the settings. There are lots, and you can read all about it, but the best thing is to set it with your own eyes, every TV is different, every environment is different,, don't just copy paste settings from the internet, it wont help you in most cases.
Again highly recommended whenever you are looking for the best quality picture!

Pros: Bright display, Durable, Realistic color
