     Hi,   We're replacing an old dying Sony WEGA 36" tv. The TV will be in the corner of a room with windows on all walls, so it's pretty brightly lit even with shades drawn. Thus, the LED. We'll be sitting on a couch set in a V configuration opposite the TV, max distance about 10-11 feet. We've...

    Im going crazy trying to decide on the following three options: (Used) Pioneer KURO 1080p Elite Plasma TV PRO-111FD (New) Samsung PN51F8500 (New) Panasonic TC-P50ST60 All in the $1600-1700 range. The only thing that concerns me about the Samsung is they have horrible CS in my...

     There have been many threads on AVS Forum about the soap opera effect. While the rest of the internet generally agrees that it's a bad thing, I've noticed a wider range of opinions around here. So I decided to make a survey about it. Since I have a plasma TV, I chose to post it here instead of...

    Hello all. I am a long time Vizio Plasma guy. It was an Old JV50P that did 720P. I just recieved my Vizio LED M651. The PQ is amazing but it has some issues I do not think I can live with outlined below. Just got my M651 delivered from Amazon and watched my First Comcast streamed movie to it...

    3 guys walk into a AV store to buy plasma tvs. The first guy says..... But wait, before I go there, I want to create a thread where we all can share our jokes, funny stores (especially if they are somewhat true), humor. I enjoy the humor in many threads. In fact I like creating and posting...

    First, is Plasma still the best choice in 2014? If yes, which ones around 1500$ ? Panasonic? Would be mainly to watch sports and movies and for some gaming. Thanks!!

    About 6 years ago I bought 2 samsung plasmas and had a screen uniformity problem on both tvs where there was a 3 inch horizontal bar that was a slight shade different going across the screen. All the replacements had this too. I ended giving up after about 5 replacements and got a refund.I...

     Hi,   It's a 51" F8500 with the supplied stand. Just noticed that the TV is tilted backwards, but just by a little bit, when I look at it from the side. Is it supposed to be this way by design? I also noticed that the guide protrusion on each edge of the stand is not all the way inside the...

     Hello everyone,   I'm contemplating the thought of purchasing my first plasma TV.  One minor concern is they tend to have static buzz noise when the screen turns bright.  I'm mostly considering the Samsung F8500 anyway - which I've heard reports is not as noisy as the Panasonics.   My...

    So I am searching for a 60-70 inch TV to replace my very old Toshiba DLP, and am having a lot of trouble. My wife is extremely sensitive to motion blur, and we both hate dejudder/soap opera affect, so we have been looking mostly at plasmas. The ST60 sounds like it would have been ideal for us...

    Just looking for some advice on which tv I should get or keep. I currently have a 60" F8500 but have an opportunity to sell it and get a brand new 60" VT60. What are the pros and cons of each? What should I do? I wouldn't mind the better black levels, but do like the extra bit of light from the...

     Hi,   Purchased the Samsung PS51F8500 at the beginning of January this year - absolutely loved it at first glance , fantastic picture both 2D and 3D .... unfortunately there is an extremely loud buzz coming from this set which can be heard over loud volumes over 8ft away - now I've always...

     I just wondered if its still worth sticking with Panasonic as a brand now they are mostly LED? Are their LED's better than the other LED's out there? Or is it a matter of, no plasma, no Panasonic?
  14. Plasma Flat Panel Displays
    I am currently in the process of finalizing my decision as to what my next display purchase will be, and at this point my small list of contenders includes a 64" F8500. As of now my biggest worry in going Samsung is whether or not I will have to deal with floating blacks. There seems to be a...

    Hi, all. It's been a while since I've spent much time poking around these forums, but I'm now in the market for a new display around 65" and my options certainly seem limited these days. I've been enjoying my D-Nice tweaked and calibrated Pioneer 500M for a long while now, so in going to a...

    I want to see how to check the hours and temperature on my PN60f8500....how do I go about this?
  17. LCD Flat Panel Displays
    Hello all, I delegated our 4 year old Panny 50" plasma to our bedroom, we replaced it with a larger 60" Samsung 6350 in our living room. Wow I've been spoiled with plasma! This Sammy looks washed compared to the plasma. The worst part is the very narrow viewing angle. My Costco has some...

     With the advice of AVS member pieandchips, thought it would be a good idea to create a thread where Samsung F8500 owners can quickly communicate with each other on various "bugs" that currently exist with the display.   One of the biggest arguments between owners is the use of Cinema Smooth...

    I pretty much got the breakdown of all displays (with accompanying slide show) shown and not (plasma) at CES 2014. I also saw the Samsung demo "Smart House " as well pretty amazing stuff. If any one has any questions I will do my best to answer them. I interviewed him asking everything I could...

    I bought a Samsung F8500 today, from my local Best Buy. I had heard good things about the Best Buy Geek Squad Protection (covers burn-in, power surges, etc.). I thought it might be a good idea to get this coverage. If the panel fails 3 years out, and cannot be repaired out of warranty because...
