  1. Plasma Flat Panel Great Found Deals!
     http://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/ele/4325139279.html for $2300. I was super ready to pull the trigger on a 60in F8500 (like tonight or tomorrow) and came across this. A few texts back and forth with the guy and he tells me it has a 5 year Brandsmart USA warranty, and was bought 3 weeks ago...

    We currently have a 58" Samsung plasma which has fallen victim to the dreaded "purple banding" issue and is going to be moved downstairs. We use an HTPC and a couple HDHomeRun Prime boxes to get our TV/DVR fix. As such, we have no need for many of the "smart" features in current TVs. We do...

    Hi there, Just got the 60" Samsung F8500 today. Was working fine, but now I can't get any signal to the TV. There's only just 1 HDMI cable running to it from my Onkyo SR805 receiver. Doesn't matter whether I've got the TiVo HD or the PS3 as the source. The screen is still blank. I have...

    Ok i received my unit last week. Havent watched much on it yet.... did watch Avatar which looked good and have been running slides. When running slides and watching full screen blue rays I keep contrast high. If not I turn it down to 30. I easily notice the buzz that ive been reading about from...

    I've read that the 60" F5500 uses a pentile layout instead of the standard RGB found in the 51" and 64". Does this only hold true to the F5500 series as does it also apply to the F8500 series as well? I've never been a big fan of pentile layouts as they appear to be less sharp and show an SDE...
  8. Home Theater In A Box
    Hey there, please don't laugh too loud at this post. I have no idea how dumb these questions are going to be. I recently bought a 60" Samsung F8500, and the sound was brutal, so I went looking for a reasonable home theater, entry level. I picked up a Pioneer VSX-823K and Polk Audio RM6750...

    Seems like every 60" or almost every 60" model buzzes ...and not so much the 51 or 64". Would like to see peoples experiences. I have a 60" model on the way.

    Just got my 60" TV and it looks great. Have not got it up yet. 1) My main question is, doesn't this come with 2 remotes? The touchpad and the numeric? I only seem to have the touchpad. I am in Canada by the way, not sure if we got left out of the second remote. 2) Anything I should...

    Anybody here use slides to break in their 8500? I've heard these units get pretty hot when running slides on them and I don't want to exceed the recommended temperature range. Also...what settings do you all use during the break in period.

    I have a Samsung 8500, PN60F8500AFXZA. It has 4 HDMI inputs, one of them being HDMI ARC (HDMI #3). I've actually exchanged a Marantz SR6008 thinking it was the problem (currently on order), only to use my TV and see the problem reoccur. The Problem: The top portion of my screen will...

    My new 60" F8500 arrived. I picked it up, unboxed it and hooked it up. As soon as I plugged the TV in, it fired up and briefly showed the text "Smart TV, then five icons, after which is immediately began cycling through a series of screens that were completely white, completely red, completely...

     Hello all, good to be back. For many years, probably 12-13, I've been the satisfied owner of a Pioneer Elite 50" plasma and was sad to see the shadow and any dark image areas going green to the point of distraction. No amount of tweaking helped.   So have just purchased a 60" 8500 and am...

    This is not the best time for me to be making purchases, even though with Panasonic leaving Plasma scene, it really is a good time to get one of their plasma sets. So, does it mean that very soon you won't be able to purchase their TVs anywhere, but from eBay and similar? What about other...

     Hi,   After much debate I have just purchased a 60inch Samsung F8500 but was worried about the input lag for gaming can anyone advise me on their gaming experience?   I can still change it for a Sony W900A if I want but I think the 8500 has a better picture. I am no pro gamer but would...

    I bought this TV a few months ago and had all my sources hooked up directly to the TV via HDMI. All excited, I decided the upgrade my audio as the next step. I wanted to take advantage of all the new HDMI surround sound formats so I figured a new ROTEL 1562 would do the trick. Well after a...

    I have a Pioneer Elite FHD-1 50" plasma that I bought years ago when they first came out. I am looking to replace it with a 60" plasma. It is between the Panasonic ZT60 or Samsung 8500. Which has the better overall picture quality? I am not interested in the sound as I am going to be using it...

    Love the new TV except for one thing... whenever I use the HDMI channel with the Oppo Blu-ray player, if there is any momentary gap in the signal (like switching to Netflix, or to 24fps, or almost anything), I get a pop-up screen telling me to make sure there is a connection. This necessitates...
