New features work great. Overall tv picture quality is truely amazing. Deep blacks, reference color, crisp and clear picture. The expansion slot is a very smart idea and come next year it's feature will be fully realized. The best (smartest) decision for a tv, SAMSUNG E8000 SERIES.

I have had this TV for about 6 months and have been extremely disapointed with it's performance. As for "regular TV" performance such as picture quality, sound, etc it is ok. However, if that is what you care about you can get a much better tv for the money. The only reason to pay a premium for this TV is for the "smart" internet connectivity. In this category the Samsung falls short compared to competative products. If this tv is unable to connect to samsung the web/internet interface they call smart hub is completely disabled. Even when it does work it is extremely slow and buggy. They pre-populate their choice of apps that you can't delete. If you are in the market for a regular tv, save your money. If you want a truely smart tv look elsewhere.

      Comments about Samsung 51" Silver Plasma 1080P 3D Smart HDTV:

      Amazingly thin. Gorgeous picture. Great apps. Wired or Wifi (built-in)...and the 3D is nothing to shake a stick as either. My only (very slight) complaint would be about the sound, it could be better...but I didn't buy it to listen to it. I bought it to watch. ...and what a show it displays.

              After extensive research I purchased the Plasma E8000 Series Smart TV - 51" Class for its looks and performance. I also wanted this specific model because of the impending release of the Samsung "Evolution Kit." This kit attaches the the rear of the TV and the software and firmware is updated periodically by Samsung. It gives you added memory and apps for the TV. The TV is great. Wonderful picture and styling. There are plenty of functions to adjust for your perfect picture and sound. The chrome base is very sturdy and stylish. I recommend this television. I am not as happy with my Evolution Kit but that is for another review.

                    Comments about Samsung 51" Silver Plasma 1080P 3D Smart HDTV:

                    I purchased this TV after some deliberating from mixed reviews, but the price was what make the tipping point. The picture is fantastic very deep colors and black, not issues at all, the internet streaming from lower quality is also very good and from proper distance it one of the best viewing TV. There is a small hum from the TV but you have to be very close to hear it. 7 - 10 feet from the TV and you will have to have absolute quite to be able to hear it. The small kins is the voice and gesture control. The gesture will need good lighting to work properly, and the voice has sometimes glitches, the TV will turn of during normal conversation or dog barging. This is just a minor issue for me as I did purchase the TV for the quality picture. The Samsung HUB offer the most apps in the industry. I had several other smart TV but now I will stay with Samsung mainly due the App selection. I did not contact the tech support yet so I cannot comment on it

                          As nice as this tv is with all of the features that it has. It's stand is pretty bad. The tv wobbles. So far, everything else about this tv is geat. Hd and 3d both look amazing. The sound is also good. Which actually is better than most tvs of this type. Soundbar is not necessary. Have only started playing with the web features. There's alot of content. I've not taken away a star for the stand because unless your going to be bouncing around the tv it will not matter. I'm just amazed that as gorgeous as this tv is in both appearance and visuals. It's stand is quite questionable. Guess they had to skimp somewhere. All in all though, best tv I've ever owned.

                                This is a great TV. I really like the smart hub. The 3D glasses are flimsy. They work ok but do not stay on my head like regular glasses. There is no "audio out", so using head phones or a Bluetooth transmitter is not possible.

                                    Comments about Samsung 51" Silver Plasma 1080P 3D Smart HDTV:

                                    I have had this TV for about 6 months and have been extremely disapointed with it's performance. As for "regular TV" performance such as picture quality, sound, etc it is ok. However, if that is what you care about you can get a much better tv for the money. The only reason to pay a premium for this TV is for the "smart" internet connectivity. In this category the Samsung falls short compared to competative products. If this tv is unable to connect to samsung the web/internet interface they call smart hub is completely disabled. Even when it does work it is extremely slow and buggy. They pre-populate their choice of apps that you can't delete. If you are in the market for a regular tv, save your money. If you want a truely smart tv look elsewhere.
