In the USA the ‘Value Electronics’ TV shootout, which is run by professional sellers and TV tech professionals, is one of the most keenly watched events on the professional installer calendar. By the slimmest of margins a Samsung plasma TV has come out as the winner despite all the hype surrounding new TV technology.
In what turned out to be a very close vote, Samsung’s new flagship 8000 series plasma TV was voted the winner by one vote.
The 64-inch version of Samsung’s plasma TV offering was pitted against Panasonic’s newest flagship plasma model the 65-inch FullHD 1080p TCP65ZT60, Panasonic’s step-down 65-inch FullHD plasma model the TC-P65VT60, and three LED LCD TVs, including Sony’s new 65-inch 4K Ultra HD the XBR-65X900A, Samsung’s FullHD 55-inch UN55F8000 and Panasonic’s FullHD TC-L55WT60.
According to the vote tabulations, attendees liked the higher light output of the F8500.
“They saw the F8500 as even sharper, which I would assume is also because of the brighter image in low and high ambient light conditions,” Zohn explained in a statement announcing the winner. “Many participants told me the Samsung F8500 whites looked cleaner, brighter and in their opinion, whiter.”
