Better than ever!!!
This tv is gorgeous, slimmer bezel, all metal with brushed aluminum makes this tv very unique and elegant, all other brands just look alike and the sony and panasonic gorilla glass is pretty redundant, not that attractive, and looks cheap. Solid construction all around compared to the cheap plastics that shows glue on edges of leds. Narrow profile.
Best HDTV picture quality available
While we can't claim that the F8500 is the new reference TV in picture quality, it looks to be one of the best 1080p televisions ever. Each screen size in this series is fairly expensive, and they should be: There is only quality here. The F8500 has royally surpassed one of the biggest drawbacks of plasma tech-their dimness when compared to LCDs-giving those with the funds to pursue it every reason to do so.
Very dark blacks, Accurate colors that pop
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 you're at it.
Smart Hub/Smart TV with voice recognition
The PN60F8500 is one of the best values in TV for 2013 and early 2014. It has such a great-deep black level that only OLED TVs and the Panasonic TC-P65ZT60 will be able to compete with it on picture quality. In terms of value, these top end plasma TVs lead the market again in 2013.
Stunning black levels, Great shadow detail
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 novelty features for our taste (we could do without voice commands and gesture control entirely) it's Smart Hub TV interface is one of the best platforms available.
Superb picture quality, Wide variety of smart TV apps
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. Samsung continues to support the plasma format (at least for now), and the F8500 is a text book example of plasma HDTV done right: black levels to die for, but here they are accompanied by a brighter picture than we normally see on a plasma.
Accurate color reproduction produced spectacular images
The Samsung PN60F8500 is the best Samsung HDTV we've ever reviewed. Its spectacular performance places it in the stratosphere of the finest 2013 HDTVs, and therefore, by extension, one of the best-looking TVs ever. Due to the aforementioned combination of deep inky blacks coupled with its very high brightness level and excellent 5 out of 5AR filter; the Samsung F8500 achieves our top rating. HD Guru awards the Samsung PN60F8500.
Strong peak whites and brightness levels
The UN55F7500 is going to get a lot of competition from LG and Panasonic in the 55 inch class. All the sets are feature heavy with smart TV suites, high refresh rates, and top notch picture quality. Samsung's F7500 stands out when it comes to picture quality and design. Contrast is impressive on this one with the best black level performance. The design of the TV it as eye catching as it is pleasing. The super thin bezel and curved stand really play into the floating image illusion.
Solid color performance, poor contrast ratio
If you're going to purchase a TV in the R550A series, do so because you need a media-hosting device, or are particularly attuned to 3D movies. The 50R550A has plenty to tweak to make the picture better, but the bottom line is that it does not have the dynamic power to create a majestic image, and no amount of fiddling will fix that.
There are plenty of smart, 3D, lower-performance 50-inch TVs available this year and last year for less than $1000.
Very happy with the E7000
Picture - OUTSTANDING - sharp, crisp, clear, lots of adjustment, dark levels can be adjusted, brightness is there and it just right for me! Blu-ray is amazing. I enjoyed my 3 year old Sharp Aquos 52" and Samsung LCD but this TV night and day. The viewing angle is also much better than my Sharp and my Samsung. Motion blur - whats that? This is so much nicer watching fast motion than my other tvs.
I watch a lot of TWC high def. tv and stream Netflix.
Value offering with good sound quality.
While the Samsung 60E7000 is priced best in market, the 64" 64E7000 is a bit above the Panasonic TC-P65GT50 plasma and the LG 65LM6200 (LED-LCD TV). At $2700 it's a good value for sure, just not best in the market. There are not many 64/65" TVs in the market and perhaps this is why. You get good solid picture quality from this TV with perhaps the best picture in the market when viewing in a darker room environment. For a brighter room I would take a look at the two other models listed above.
Picture quality good. Some concerns
I've had it for a week now. Here are my observations:
2d to 3D conversion: Though not as good as native 3D content, this TV does a remarkable job. I've tested this feature on a couple football games and the stadium looked recessed where it should. The 3D depth can be controlled too. It works best where there is an obvious difference in depth.
3D broadcast: I tested "the Lorax" on Dish VOD and it looked great though there were some places where crosstalk could be seen.
Bright Picture Capability with strong Peak Whites.
One of the reasons I've mentioned plasma TVs throughout this review in comparison with these new huge Sharp LED TVs is that they compete in price and value. Sharp has really set the benchmark in these very large LED-LCD screen sizes with compelling pricing. Panasonic and Samsung have great plasma TVs with some superior but very different picture attributes. It really depends on your needs. Regardless, there are plenty of 60" plasma choices and even some 65".
Deep black levels produce a great contrast ratio
If we scored TVs strictly for being charming, this Sharp would be a clear recommendation. The LC-60LE847U (MSRP $2,700) is about as charming as a 60-inch television can be: the brushed metal-style base, the unintentionally retro menus, and the coffee table-sized user manual all contribute to this. At TelevisionInfo.com, we base our scores on results and this TV was found lacking.
The LC-60LE847U runs into problems in three key areas: color quality, 3D, and its Smart TV platform.
Crisp smooth motion
This model the Samsung UN40C7000 is better in all areas when compared to the 6 series. The 240hz, ensures crisp smooth motion, the contrast provides even deeper blacks. This TV is a dream. One feature which I find outstanding in the newer models is the reduction in MPEG conpression artifacts. The removal of these makes the picture on the LCD-LED TV's much clearer than my Pioneer KURO plasma TV. Even Low Def TV looks clear and crisp, with minimal up-scaling artifacts.
Very smooth panning
The Samsung C7000 series is sexy, super-slim, full-featured, and delivers generally good picture quality, but over-saturation, moving buildings, and a poor range of side viewing angles are flaws.

3D performance is good
The Samsung UN40C7000's rich display of 2D content makes me forgive its occasional hot spot hiccups that are still too prevalent in edge-lit LED displays. And its 3D performance is not the in-your-face experience that you might desire. But this Samsung doesn't lack for Internet apps.
Excellent picture performance
Samsung has even improved its Internet@TV service in an attempt to emulate the success of Apple's App Store, and offers BBC iPlayer, LoveFilm video-on-demand and other exciting widgets and add-ons (some free, with paid ones to come), so, considering the Freeview HD too, you'll never be short of 2D content. And then there's full-on media streaming via DLNA from a remote source such as PC or NAS box, or the ability to play HD file types through the USB ports.
The Samsung C8000 series delivers outstanding video and audio, plus a ton of well-designed Internet and media player features--for a hefty fee.

Very good to excellent video processing and upconversion.
Overall, I enjoyed my time with the Samsung PN50C8000. While 3D and black level performance were not the absolute best we've ever seen, they were excellent, exceeding the performance of most if not all LCD and LED TVs. The C8000 series offers an impressive combination of features, performance and elegant styling sure to satisfy even the most demanding videophile.
Top-class movement compensation
The Sony BRAVIA XBR-52HX909 is a high-end, 52", 3D HDTV to be released in July 2010. Prohibitively expensive for many at $4000, the unit's key feature, aside from its 3D capability, is full-array local LED dimming, which allows parts of the backlight to shut off independently, producing higher black levels.
Impressive 2D and 3D picture quality.
With the BRAVIA XBR-52HX909, Sony has packaged all of the high-end technologies, dynamic full array LED backlighting, a 240Hz frame rate, 3D capability and Internet connectivity, into an LCD TV that produces impressive 2D and 3D picture quality.
