With deep black levels, excellent color reproduction, good 3D performance, and a competitive price, Samsung's E6500 series comes close to matching the gdgt Must-have Panasonic ST50 in just about every respect. The ST50 does get somewhat brighter, and has slightly better performance in bright rooms, and it also offers more size options, coming in four different sizes from 50-inches up to 65-inches. However, the E6500 matches it very closely at 51-inches and 60-inches, and if you're looking for a solid plasma TV at a great price in either of those sizes, the E6500 should be close to the top of your list.

The Samsung PS60E6500 is one of the biggest and most pleasant TV surprises of the year. Not only is it far and away Samsung’s best plasma TV yet, but it’s arguably our favourite Samsung TV of 2012, period. Especially given how cheap it is.
