How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

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.
