Samsung PN58C8000 3D 58″ Plasma-First Review

Paying $3000 for a TV is a big investment, and in plasma there’s basically few competitors to the amazing VT series of Panasonic plasmas. Samsung however looks to have provided a solid competitor with this model, at least worth considering in that price range.


The PN58C8000 produces outstanding 2D images. The internal signal processing for 480i and 1080i signals aced all the HQV tests including deinterlacing, 3:2 film conversion, detail, noise reduction and freedom from jaggies. The 8000 also passed all the various non-standard video capture rates such as Varicam and animation sequences, a minor yet notable achievement. The motion resolution comes in at the full 1080 lines per picture height.
