I apologize if this has been mentioned in another thread but I can't seem to find it. Does anybody know when the new Samsung 2009 plasmas called 6 and 8 series will be for sale?


Does anybody know? Also prices?


The 8 series looks amazing!

The Series 8 and 6 look amazing, but I haven't heard anything about updates to the Series 5 Samsung plasmas -- believe it will be called the PN50B550. Any info?

Anyone know what the black levels are like in the 5 series? Also, is there a 42" 1080p?

Most likely 50,000:1 Native and 2,000,000:1 Dynamically.

Doubt it. I don't think they are using 5 lumen tech either.

What I like about Sammy Plasmas is that you don't have to pay a premium for accurate colors. If last years 550 model was any indicator of what to expect this year then we are living in good times, well besides the economic crisis lol.

Info I gained from CES :


Samsung Plasma's (for release in March or April)



PN42B450

PN50B450


PN42B550

PN50B550


PN50B650

PN58B650


These units below are 1.1" thick and have a light filter to take in light but not let the light back out creating less reflection.


PN50B850

PN50B860

PN58B850

PN58B860


Samsung will also release series 4,5,6,and 7 in standard LCD format. They will have a series 6, 7, and 8 in LED LCD's. The series 8 will be 1" Thick.

^^^ Thanks Chris. As I've said, I really like the way Samsung approaches technical issues. There approach seems broad and comprehensive.

If they are dropping in late February-March then there should be some blowout pricing on the '08 models anyday now right?(maybe starting this weekend...2 weeks before SB?)

I really like the bezel on these Sammy's. I don't care that much for the Panasonic bezel FWIW. Hopefully Samsung has done something about reducing IR on these as "from what I've read" that could be a knock against them as they seem like nice plasmas (with the exception of black levels (this is coming from a Kuro owner). I'm interested in knowing how black levels will compare with the NeoPDPs.
