Blimey, thats a cracking price to start with if it's as good as they say and Panasonic have resolved all the issues the previous Plasma's had

Yes, just read that review. Apparently, an excellent TV but the Panasonic edges it on performance:

RE: Samsung F8500 plasma anticipation thread

Looks like it's going to be the best year ever for TVs, especially Plasma TVs.

It's a shame that Samsung are only selling this in 51" and 64" screen sizes in the UK, what's happened to everything in-between!

Looks good! Out of interest, is the stand detachable?

RE: Samsung F8500 plasma anticipation thread

All in all a very good tv then but it would be great to see a supertest in a future edition of the magazine between this and the comparable Panasonic offering which I presume will be the GT60 or VT60?

I'm in the market for a 50 or 55 inch tv myself this year but I don't think I would go back to plasma simply because I'm a gamer and have issues in the past because of it so with a heavy heart it will be LED for me this year unless the latest Panasonic or Samsung plasmas prove to be suitable for gaming.

Where is stapped?? I presume he has seen the review of the F8500...wondering if it has influenced his decision?

Samsung UE55F8000 TV (THX professional calibrated), Dali Zensor 5 7.1 (front presence configuration), Sony BDPS790, Yamaha RX-A2020, Marantz PM6004, Marantz CD6003, Virgin TiVo 1TB, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, WD TV Live, WD My Book World 1TB.

I'm still here mate; though I bought another TV already.

The F8500 is an excellent TV; it's just that Panasonic has moved things on again this year.
