SAMSUNG PN59D8000 59 INCH PLASMA TV INTRODUCTION
While LCD and LED technology has taken the crown lately for the most improved display technology, plasma TV technology has remained relatively stationary. Sure the power consumption has been dropped in half and small tweaks to the Cell Backlight have led to better contrast ratios and blacker blacks, but the core foundation is the same. All that has been developing over the past 5+ years could be summed up as fine tuning and diminish any negative characteristics from the past. Take for instance Screen Burn in. What was once a damaging problem has been solved on all models created by most manufacturers. What about the power consumption? Well, what once drew 600-700watts now only draws 200-300. But aren't Plasma TVs heavy and big? Again, next to the same size LED/LCD model, yes, they are a little bigger and heavier. But today's plasmas are thinner than LCD TVs I reviewed only 2-3 years ago.
The point I am trying to make is that the plasma TV technology is relatively unchanged, but the drawbacks in most cases have been solved. Take for instance the Samsung PN59D8000 being reviewed today. Other than the excellent Smart TV functionality, the TV doesn't represent a huge launch forward in terms of development. It's all about the little improvements that polish a viewing experience that even last year was pretty spectacular. But let's not sum the review up too early.
Read on to find out why this premium plasma TV might be a good option to consider if you are in the market for a LARGE display.
