Well the F8500 is still one of the very best TVs you can buy today. Even in bright conditions it competes well with more expensive models, so it is fairly priced. The H5000 would look washed out in...

I agree. We all have our biases so it would be great to see a fair blind comparison of set A vs. set B by a group of experienced reviewers. I would also like a mediocre and good LCD added to the...

To be fair, a comparison of the 64" F8500 and H5000 must include the AR filter, light output, pixel structure, smart TV, number of HDMI inputs, 3D, etc. And price. Each of us has a different...

The Very Best of Brenda Holloway.

Brenda was shamefully under-appreciated. "When I'm Gone" is the best hit record of the last 50 years. Two minutes of pure bliss. What a talent!

1. The "Model" you have.

Samsung PN64H5000


2. What convinced you to purchase this particular "Model".

Price, excellent reviews and it's getting down to the last chance to get a new plasma

Purchase decision. Is Plasma still worthwhile?

I think plasma is still viable today, especially since you're used to the display. I'd expect it would be hard going from plasma to the harsher, less natural LCD display.

I was happy with my seven...

I think the upgrade to the PN60F5300 is worth $300 over the 51" version. In fact I kicked in another few hundred for the 64". It was an upgrade from my old 56" (which still works fine) and I am not...

Yes, definitely read the PN64H5000 thread to get lots of pros& cons. I carefully read the thread and all the online reviews then purchased the H5000 without seeing one in person. And I'm glad I did!...

This was just a test of the second HDMI port and how the TV interfaced with a PC so I used the laptop's native resolution of 1366x768 (only 720p). I also wouldn't use the TV as a main external...

My PC's display resolution is set to 1366x768 and I had clean text at 11'. Can't say what lower resolution would be like.

After two weeks of owning the PN64H5000 I can honestly say that, at least for me, the 64" Pentile panel (with big funny pixels up close) has transformed from a worrisome issue to a non-issue and now...

I also have a RAV4. You're right - no way I could get that big box in it!

But I'm glad the box is big, mine took a lot of damage yet still protected the H5000 inside.

Thanks, Dan! I actually have thought of donating it to charity. I assume they would accept old technology that still looks good. 1080p and nice color tones. Definitely something for me to look in to.

I also considered the PN60F5300 but the slight pink tint issues worried me and with my luck I'd get the old A panel. Also I was moving up from 56" and didn't think 60" was enough of a size increase....

Wait till the delivery crew gets ahold of those boxes! My box was pretty beat up and took a low shot that ripped out one of the four black plastic hold-downs. But the box and packing materials did...

It would be interesting find out what people think about third party AR filters. I suppose you could find reviews online.

For my basement media room I prefer the H5000 glossy panel with no filter....
