Preliminary Review of Samsung New PN60F8500 Plasma E-mail

tn_1200_dbc2c3baacce73e2e5e9c68a58e4015f.png.pngPros: Vastly improved black level and light output capability combine to deliver a dramatic increase in Contrast Ratio. The panel is processing RGB correctly going well below video black (16) and well above white (235), further improving contrast ratio. Video processing correctly handles 24p Blu-ray content at 96Hz, and also offers a Judder Corrector feature.


Cons: The 2pt and 10pt white balance and Custom Color Space CMS (Color Management System) calibration features seem to interact quite a bit making professional calibration time consuming. Vertical viewing angle is poor at close range, due to the ambient light rejecting filter on the panel, but is not a problem at normal viewing distances.


To Buy or Not to Buy: As of this writing, the Samsung PN60F8500 series plasma is clearly one of the best flat panels money can buy from a picture quality and video performance perspective. Highly Recommended!

pn60f8500-2.jpgI spent another full day calibrating and evaluating the PN64F8500 plasma panels. This afforded me the time to measure black level and ANSI contrast ratio on the larger 64-inch model so we could compare results between the different sizes. Some clarification from Samsung on the video processing of the F8500 series made me revisit the 24p tests. The Cinema Smooth feature on these Samsung’s series is the 96Hz processing scheme for 24p, which introduces so much judder that it is unusable. See the Contrast Ratio and Video Processing sections for updates on these important areas of performance. The bottom line is it does not change my overall conclusions about the F8500 series Samsung plasmas.
