2014 Samsung Plasma Televisions
Samsung H5000 Series
The H5000 series plasma TV is as basic as it gets for a 1080p plasma TV. There are no frills to inflate the price, making it an excellent value option. The appearance and design are standard for the mid to lower tier Samsung TVs.
2013 Samsung Plasma Televisions
Samsung F8500 Series
The F8500 series is the flagship plasma for 2013/2014. This model holds 2.5 times brighter whites and an increase of 400% in black levels over the E8000's head, the previous top of the line plasma. Those are some mighty claims, but we've seen them to be true. The only competition out there is going to be from the OLEDs and Panasonic's ZT60 series.

Samsung F5500 Series
This mid level plasma series has a heavy feature set, making it a good choice for plasma lovers that aren't willing to go all they way with the F8500 series. It has all of the same features minus the super black levels and a built-in camera for enhanced interaction. It's a value model with the aim of satisfying the need of 3D and internet features.
