The PNF8500 is the last gasp of the plasma TV, an HD technology that boasts legitimately better image quality than LCD (or so-called LEDs, which are actually LCD screens backlit with LEDs). But plasma is expensive, and lingering, outdated worries of burn-in – where logos or other static images can create permanent, ghostly impressions on the screen, though only early plasmas were susceptible – have effectively killed it. Which is all the more reason for picture quality purists to get Samsung's best plasma before supplies run out, and enjoy the deepest possible blacks, and best overall contrast on any TV.
