"Great colors, not-so-great 24p film reproduction"3.5 starson by insinuendo
Pros: The colors really stand out and the image is highly adjustable.
3D looks pretty, though much can still be done to improve dynamic 3D reproduction.
Cons: Doesn't reproduce 24p cadence properly (which in my eyes is a big bummer).
Can't just turn screen off.
Summary: I went from a Panasonic TC P50G20 to the Samsung PN51D8000 for two main reasons.
The first being that the Panasonic did not properly handle 1080p/24. Based on the reviews for last years model, I expected this years Samsung D8000 series to do so. HA! that'll teach me to be in such a hurry and pre-order a new HDTV.
It is an overall improvement when all is considered over my old Panasonic model...However, I'm somewhat disappointed in its performance.
