Product Details
Description
The PN60E8000 60" Class PDP HDTV from Samsung has a host of new features that are sure to knock your socks off. First, let's start off with voice navigation and gesture control. Voice navigation works by responding to the sound of your voice. It allows you to turn on the TV, change the channels and access your applications without having to use a remote. It gives you the freedom to speak at the TV. Now gesture control on the other hand works and reacts to the movement made by your hands. Think of it as a hands-free remote control or as if you are a Jedi knight and you have the force.

Samsung PN60E8000 Review
4 Star Review  projectorcentral.com - Dec 20, 2012

The PN60E8000's picture quality is exactly what you would expect from Samsung's top-of-the-line plasma. And its Smart TV lineup of content providers and apps will keep you entertained on these long wintry nights. I would have preferred that Samsung baked some of the features like Voice and Gesture controls a little longer. I don't think they are ready for Prime Time and detract from an otherwise stellar TV.

3.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Apr 18, 2012

THE GOOD: The <b>Samsung PNE8000 series</b> exhibited outstanding overall picture quality, characterized by exceedingly deep black levels, accurate colors, superb video processing and very good 3D. Unlike LCDs, as a plasma it has superb off-angle and uniformity characteristics. Its massive feature set includes a touchpad remote, IR blaster, two pairs of 3D glasses, motion and voice command and the industrys most capable Smart TV platform. This Samsung is also one of the best plasma designs around. THE BAD: Samsung charges too much for extra features that are largely unnecessary and poorly implemented. Its picture delivers slightly worse shadow detail and bright-room performance than some competitive plasmas, and its maximum light output is somewhat dim. THE BOTTOM LINE: The expensive Samsung PNE8000 series comes through with stellar picture quality, but its main appeal is to people who crave the latest gadgetry in their plasma TV.

4 Star Review   Crutchfield.com   

Crutchfield has collected 7 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 4.4 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "After researching TV's for months I narrowed it down to this E8000 Plasma. It looks great OFF and ON. Everything is amazing about this set except for the wide spread complaints of the high pitched buzz it emits. I am on my second TV after exchanging the first one in hopes for a non-buzzer. The second set buzzes as well, unfortunately. Trying my best to tolerate the noise and appreciate the picture. Can't bring myself to go back to LED."
