The CES may be over but we still have some discussion topics still worth your attention and one of them is Samsung’s Plasma TV line-up for this year.

Samsung has brought to the show a few new large screen TVs that have made a lasting impression on the audience.

Among these new releases there were a new OLED TV, a few Smart LED models that are budget friendly and may be a perfect option for you this year and the company’s Plasma TV line-up, including three new lines of Plasma TVs. To top it all off, Samsung has also introduced a new compact Blu-Ray player and we’ve talked about it a while back.

Samsung E8000 Series Plasma TVs

Samsung’s Plasma TV line for 2012 includes the high-end E8000 series featuring models coming with 3D and Smart TV capabilities as well as the gorgeous design we’ve all grown to love in last year’s models.

The design has been further improved with these new releases and now Samsung’s Plasma TVs come with slimmer bezels and the new media features for 2012.

The Smart TV features are what Samsung wanted to improve further given the success of the last year’s models. The 2012 flagship E8000 Plasma TV series packs an updated Smart TV platform, more apps and a touch-pad remote control with Smart Interaction control featuring gesture and voice control. Gesture and voice control is available with the integrated microphone and camera.

The Smart TV features are what separate Samsung’s new Plasma TVs from the competition this year. If you are looking for a truly “Smart TV” this year, the Samsung E8000 series is the way to go.

We shouldn’t forget to mention the new and improved 3D capabilities which you’ll still be able to enjoy using Samsung’s 3D glasses. Samsung announces that you’ll be able to enjoy a 10% improvement in black levels with the flagship E8000 series as well as improved picture quality in comparison to the 2011 models of Plasma TVs.

One Response to Samsung E8000, E7000, E6500 and E550 Plasma TV Series

  1. Ron says:

    What is the difference between the E8000, 7000 & 550? The E550 is almost 50% less than the E8000, and other than the 25M contrast ratio and the camera for skype and gestures, cannot find the $1K difference in price…any help?
