          Bought this TV about three months ago. Previously had the top of the line Samsung plasma from about 4 years ago. The family room that I watch this TV in is very bright. Had read that this TV was the brightest plasma out there, and it is. I would say that it is at least 25% brighter, and a noticeable difference. I don't have an LED, but I would think it is as bright. The colors are rich and the overall picture is great using just the settings I got off of CNET. The voice and hand gesture stuff does not work that great. The remote is fast when u r scrolling thru the apps. Overall great TV , especially if u prefer plasma and have a bright room.

          As stated in a review I read in a magazine. This TV with it's bright display has the best overall performance of any TV under $10,000.00

              Great TV. It looks 3D when it is only playing 2D. The 3D picture is the best I have ever seen.

                  I ordered it in March of this year and finally received it in May. I didn't know it had to be made. So, my new TV is very new indeed. I have to wear a cup on my bottom jaw because I can't seem to get it off the floor!!!

                          There is no TV out there that can beat to picture of the Plasma F8500 Series Smart TV - 64" Class. The downfall is some of the smart features are frustrating to understand and annoying at times. Other than the smart feature issues, this is a great TV! I recently purchased a 28" VISIO LED TV for our bedroom. The picture quality was very poor. I returned the Visio to purchase a Samsung 32" LED. What a difference! The Samsung is far superior!

                                The TV has been great, although it would be nice to use the browser to watch video directly without having to connect to a PC for some browser based video. The picture was bright but seemed to blur easily on some basic motion. My 50" pioneer which is going on 7 years seems to handle motion better, but I'll wait till football. I've seen some comments on the video camera not being adjustable and after some tinkering there is a small lever on the top of the camera in which you can get it to point up an down. This was especially useful as the TV is up high and we love to use the TV for Skype while sitting on a couch.

                                          This is my first plasma and by far, it has the best PQ I've ever seen! Even right out of the box the PQ was amazing. As I continue to perform small calibrations, the PQ is still improving. Even though Samsung doesn't require a break in period, I elected to run 200 hours of slides before connecting the plasma to my audio system. Installation and setup was very easy by just simply following the screen prompts. The SMART features are nice but after 30 days I turned them off. Periodically, they would just turn on requiring a voice command to shut it down. The camera angle is not adjustable and with my TV wall mounted and centered to my eye level sitting on my sofa 10 feet away, points the camera over the top of my head. I hope I can change the adjustments on my mount to get it at least chest high. Samsung should consider adding a camera tilt adjustment to the large TV models. I've always observed plasma's had a low light type of screen. Not this Sammy! It's configured for Movie mode and in both a dark and moderately bright room, picture is as bright as my 4 other LED/LCD Sammy's. PQ is why I purchased this plasma and it certainly delivers.
