We sense the impending outbreak of upgraditis

If Panasonic's plasma TV announcements haven't exactly got you all excited, perhaps Samsung's will, as the F8500 looks stunning. Truly gorgeous, at least in this HDTV Reviewer's estimation.

Designed to become the new industry standard for plasma TV excellence, Samsung promises the F8500 offers the ultimate in picture quality with the deepest blacks and the brightest picture available. In fact, the F8500 delivers the same brightness levels and eight times the black expression of regular LED TVs, thanks to new luminance enhancements and Samsung’s proprietary Deep Black Algorithm and Real Black Pro II for improved black expression. The F8500 is also one of the first televisions with native support for HEVC-encoded content.



The F8500’s unique design is a mix of aesthetic and functional aspects. Its One Body Form design is created using a single piece of metal. The futuristic design is highlighted by the TV’s dark titan metal colour, an ultra-slim frame, naturally curved lines and a unique square-shaped stand, making it appear more like a work of art rather than a TV. It will be available in 51”, 60” and 64” class screen sizes.

Each Samsung flagship Smart TV also come with a Smart Evolution, which allow consumers to update the hardware and software on their TVs so that they can stay up-to-date with the latest innovations in Smart TV.

Curious how they will get the same brightness as led and deep blacks while sticking to EU power regs.
Could be different for us UK folk...I hope not.

What the hell is that? ...same brightness as LED... - ******** man
also ...native support for HEVC-encoded content... man that was fast. Wondering what they exactly mean by that. HEVC just literally been standardised and they already got a support. Hmmm. will see whats true and whats not.

This is how a 2013 home cinema HDTV should look like. Black TV + black stand in one uniform body.
Finally Samsung has hit the spot with the design.
