PRODUCT COMPOSITION (cont'd)
With the PN59D8000 you get a rather compact remote control that is much smaller than anything seen while testing last year's models. Wait, something is weird here. We need to take a closer look. What's this on the other side of it?
Yes, that's right, your eyes do not deceive you. This remote control comes complete with not only a QWERTY keypad, but also a number pad and a touch mouse for navigation. Everything you will need to surf the web is contained right here. This feature by far was the one that brought the most interest when showing the new TV to friends.
Depending on the package you purchase, you will receive one or two pairs of Samsung's
SSG -3100GB 3D glasses. They are much more affordable than last year's model and require a lithium battery for operation rather than the ability to be recharged through a computer USB port.
And with the help of a friend/spouse/partner, you can finally hoist your enormous 59 inch Plasma TV up on to your stand. First impressions other than the heft is that this is a very stylish display and the small bezel makes this TV look larger than its already sizeable dimensions. But there was one drawback that I will talk about on the next page.
