        I am hoping to change this review sometime soon. I received this panel a week ago and it really is spectacular to look at. Unfortunately, it also generates a very audible buzzing sound from the dead center of the screen that can be easily heard from 12-15 feet away. I have owned plasma televisions since 2007 and am aware that they buzz a little but nothing that can be heard more than a foot away from the screen. I will be exchanging this set soon for another 60" F8500 and hoping that this one was simply defective. I am posting it now because, when researching this issue, I found that there are quite a number of folks who have run into the same problem on this set. I will immediately change this post if the next one works out.

            Even without the 3D on the picture has depth. The colors are crisp and the TV is a joy to watch!

                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.
