      Samsung PN58B860 58-Inch 1080p Plasma HDTV


      Samsung's ultra-thin (1.5-inch) flagship PN58B860 is a 58-inch 1080p plasma that offers excellent picture quality.  At approximately $2300 they don't give it away, but you do get a lot of picture and a lot of technology.  The sound is only fair and you will want a separate sound system to really get home theater sound from your movies.  The set includes the company's Medi@2.0 Internet service, which uses Yahoo widgets to access online content that now includes streaming movies from Blockbuster OnDemand and soon, Amazon Video On Demand. It also comes with some preloaded content, such as recipes and games, and it can wirelessly connect to a home network via an optional USB wireless dongle.


      The Samsung PN58B860 offers excellent HD and standard-definition picture quality. It does an excellent job displaying the finest detail in top-quality HD content. Color accuracy is excellent and with HD content it displays excellent, smooth reproduction of scenes with subtly shaded light-to-dark areas, such as a sky during sunset. With SD content, the set offers very good, smooth reproduction of scenes with subtly shaded light-to-dark areas, such as a sky during sunset. It has excellent film-mode operation (3:2 pulldown) and effectively eliminates jagged edges on 1080i HD and 480i SD movie content. The remote control is excellent and all  its buttons are backlit so they're easy to see in the dark. The display panel has a super-slim profile of 1.5 inches.  The set has contrast that gives images a flatter, less dynamic appearance. Brightness level is only fair, dimmer than most, so the set is best-suited for a darker room.  


      Samsung 8 Series plasma HDTVs represents their finest innovations in design and performance. E-Panel technology combined with Samsung's Ultra FilterBright Plus provides a stunning high contrast picture even in bright rooms. It's not just the images on screen that capture your attention--the ultra-slim cabinet with Touch of Color design adds beauty to the bezel and stand. Plus new Medi@2.0 connectivity offers customizable online content right on your TV.
