  1. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    As most of you probably know, the Samsung PNF8500 series plasmas have a base that spans the entire width of the TV. The widths of the stands for the 51", 60" and 64" PDP's are 46.9'', 54.8", and 58.4", respectively. The width of the Panasonic stands are much smaller; for example, the 60-inch...

     Dolby has a new video format that aims to change the way you see images displayed on a TV. The goal is to create images that look far more realistic that what current standards and technology allow. Based on what I saw during a demo at the Venetian during CES 2014, I would say the company has...

     I have a choice of one or the other for the exact same price. Which one is better? Thank you!   I am currently coming from a Samsung UN46B8500. How does that stack against the Sonys? Happy Holidays.

     IMG_6691.jpg 101k .jpg fileI have gone through two Samsung PN64D800FF in less than 2 years. The first one after some time developed a huge line from left to right across the screen and the second one developed a line down the middle. I just exchanged it for the new Samsung 8500 and im...

     Okay, looking to get our first plasma. What I am looking for is the best picture possible in a 60+" TV, so I think that puts us in the Pan VT and ZT, and Sam 8500 range. So of the three what would you guys recommend? One thing I want to have a good picture for is hockey. So I am not sure how...

    Maybe a little early, but it seems likely that Samsung will be the only plasma manufacturer with a flagship panel next year at least according to Steve Panosian who heads their marketing team in flatpanels. What improvements do you want to see from the F8500? Do you think they'll actually...

    SHORT VERSION: Can the electrical system in a house cause a TV (or multiple TVs) to act strangely, HDMI devices not to display, to display on one device but not two others? DETAILS: I've been having an issue with my Samsung 55" LED TV. It's less than a year old and still under warranty. It...

  14. Soundbars
    I just purchased a Samsung hw-fm55c soundbar with wireless sub-woofer at Costco. I am wondering if I can mount the soundbar on a shelf next to my Samsung 55 inch LED TV since the ddv player, etc are on the shelf and I won't have to have hdmi cables running along the wall. Can anyone provide...

    I just called Panasonic to speak about the ZT line and the lady over the phone said that they are experiencing production problems. Release around August, not May. Can anyone confirm this further?

    I currently own a Samsung un55b8500 in family room and a un46b8500 in bedroom. They are the last good LCD sets Samsung made. They were the latest version of Samsung's full array led local dimming set. I am looking for information about these panels and what really happened. I have heard that...

    I really love my Samsung 55b8500 and to this day it is still considered by majority of people to be Samsungs best LCD TV ever so far. I think this samsung gets a lower black level due to its ability to dim local sections of the screen but all the weaknesses of local dimming lcd's are on this...

    I'm looking for a new bedroom tv and have been in the market for sometime now. I've actually bought three (panny 54vt25, Sony hx909, and un55d8000) and returned them. The panny was defective, and the salesman talked me into the hx909. I couldn't justify spending that much on a set with...

    I currently have a Samsung UN55B8500 in my living room and I love it. Personally I think it has deeper blacks than a 9g kuro and much more "pop" and richer colors. I'm in the market for a new TV in my bedroom as I currently have a cheapo 40 inch sharp CCFL LCD. The locally owned mom and pop...
