What You Need to Know

  • This is one of the sleekest plasma TVs we've ever seen
  • All the inputs are sideways, so you'll be able to wall-mount it with no problem
  • It's only 1.4” thick
  • Samsung has an entire app store for internet content on their televisions
  • They have almost 150 apps available for download, including Netflix, Voodoo, YouTube, and Hulu and there's even an app that provides free streaming 3D content
  • Loading times are a little slow, but this is, by far, the easiest television app store to use
  • There's no built-in Wi-Fi; the dongle is an extra $50
  • The colors are extremely vivid and accurate, especially for a plasma TV
  • Also, the blacks are very deep
  • The Smooth Motion technology also works well, but we noticed that the more you turn it up, the more digital noise you see
  • The 3D picture quality is spectacular
  • Cross-talk, or the appearance of a second image, is still there, but it's not very distracting
  • This is right up there with Panasonic's 3D as the best we've seen
  • We'll go out on a limb and say it's just as good as the 3D movie theatre experience
  • There's a feature that allows you to convert normal 2D stuff to 3D; all you do is turn on 3D conversion and put on the glasses, and you can watch practically anything in 3D
  • We've tried this feature on other TVs and it felt lame, but Samsung made it subtle enough so that it's fun to watch



  • It’s $2,500 on NewEgg.com

Overall Rating

  • Buy!
  • This is the best TV we've seen all year, both in two and three dimensions
