Samsung's 3D Plasmas – Available Now  Print E-mail
Home Theater News Plasma HDTV News

There's finally a bit of selection in the 3D plasma market.  No longer are you forced to choose between a Panasonic plasma and a Best Buy exclusive Panasonic plasma. The two lines of Samsung plasmas are fairly similar.  They both offer a 1080p resolution and 3D capability.  They've both got Samsung Apps like Internet@TV, and they both measure a slim 1.4 inches deep.

Where they differ is in video enhancement features.  The 8000 series features Real Black Filter, which is designed to create deeper blacks, while the 7000s do not.  The 8000s also have the advantage of Samsung's Motion Judder Canceller.

There's also a price difference. The 7000 line starts at an MSRP of $1,999 ($1650 right now on Amazon) for the 50 inch set and goes up to $3,499 for the 63 inch version.  The 8000s run a bit more, with the 50 inch going for $2,299 and the 63 inch selling for $3,799.
