  • 1Description

Energy Guide The Samsung PN51D8000 51" Plasma 3D HDTV packs a huge amount of great high-end specs and convenience features into a wafer-thin 1" (25.4mm) frame which gives the illusion of a bigger picture and a narrower outer frame - all in virtually the same space as previous generation models.

The combination of Mega Dynamic Contrast which delivers a ratio of 25,000,000:1 with 1080p HD and the Crystal Full HD Engine makes the PN51D8000 a remarkable TV by any standard. But that's just the beginning. Samsung hasn't sacrificed creature comforts for strong specs.

Since every room is different, the PN51D8000 employs a Real Black Filter, which allows you to enjoy sharp and well-defined black shadows and dark details. The 600Hz Subfield Motion performance flashes the plasma sub-pixels, rendering crystal-clear, judderless action which will definitely make gamers and sports fans happy. Additionally, the PN51D8000's wide connectivity includes four HDMI connections to accommodate current components and future purchases. A USB drive allows you to share slide shows and videos with your friends with ConnectShare Movie.

In addition to all of the above, the PN51D8000 is loaded with convenience features like built-in Wi-Fi, Local Contrast Enhancer and AllShare DLNA networking.

Lastly, Energy Star compliance means that you'll be saving money while helping to save the environment.

    Samsung PN51D8000 Reviews

    PN51D8000 51" Plasma 3D HDTV is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely happy I searched for a LONG time (> 1 yr) to find the right TV for me. I watch in a room that has lots of ambient light and although I originally thought I wanted to go with the newer LED technology, I kept finding that plasma was the better way to go for me...both because of the reduced glare as well as the enhanced refresh rate (great for sports). Once I heard from all 5 TV salesmen I spoke to (in stores) that each of them owned plasma & not LED, I knew that the Samsung plasma was going to be the TV for me. I especially love the Samsung SmartHub, which lets me easily access Netflix, Hulu, and the web.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best TV and Great B&H customer service Absolutely love this TV. I bought this TV after a lot of research. You can check @ and AVS Forums reviews; some people reported quality problems such as buzzing sound or changing black colors. I may be just lucky but I have not experienced any problems whatsoever and I happy to report an absolutely stunning picture, host of outstanding features and easy set up. In addition, I'd like to thank B&H for absolutely outstanding customer service as always. I highly recommend buying from B&H especially if you are buying from Canada.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who could ask for anything more? I am interested in a tv that has a good picture and produces quality video from discs. This tv surpasses anything I've seen. The picture is sharp, the colors are accurate and the 3d is beautiful. I do not have cable and the picture off the antenna is superb. I film many stage shows and the video from these discs is perfect. I am extremely happy with this set. The sound quality is good, but if you're looking for great sound you need to hook up a surround amp and better speakers. I did not expect quality sound, but I'm not disappointed. The only down side is it only has 1 combination composite/AV connection. I have several VCR's (Beta, Vhs, Laser Disc, 8mm, dv) none of which have an hdmi connection. Because there is no s-video I have to use the av connection through an external switch.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV!!! Bright, super clear, really fast refresh rate. Have yet to see any blur even in high speed action and sports. Ultra clear picture and the 3D is amazing.
