Samsung 2012 Plasma HDTV Lineup

Samsung is the most popular HDTV manufacture in the US right now, and always offer a great range of HDTVs from the very highend, to the more budget friendly models.

For 2012 Samsung introduced forty odd new HDTV divided into ten new series. Of course the majority of these were LCD HDTVs, but Samsung didn’t forget about those who prefer plasma, and have introduced three new plasma lines for 2012.

Samsung E8000 Series

The top of the range / flagship plasma HDTV or 2012 is the Samsung E8000 series (not to be confused with the flagship Samsung ES8000 series for their LED / LED range).

Available as the 51-inch Samsung PN51E8000 to the 64-inch Samsung PN64E8000. The E8000 HDTVs are “Smart TVs”, and measure just 1.5-inches in thickness and have a new ultra slim bezel.

  1. these prices are bull.i just placed an order for the 64pne8000 for $3587. and the 59 inch is actually the 60 inch as samsung did away with the 59 inch in the es/e8000 lines. the 60pne8000 could be had for $2999. however it is hard to justify the $600 price jump for 4 inches.

    • Thanks for the correction to the 60-inch over the 59-inch. I fixed this in another post, but must have missed this one.

      Where did you order from Tonyjd?
