The Samsung PN50C8000 is the company's top-of-the-line 3D plasma television at this size, 50 inches. It performs well in both 2D and 3D modes, with refresh rates of 60 and 96 Hz and some built-in smoothing controls to tame interframe judder. The menus are clear and very easy to navigate. 3D glasses are not included with the television, but a starter kit offers a couple of pair of the 3D glasses and a 3D Blu-ray disc (e.g. "Monsters vs. Aliens"). This set even offers a 2D to 3D converting feature. It handles 24p content very well, and the picture is excellent even in bright rooms. The physical set is very thin, at about 1.8 inches, making it LED-like, and the bezel is black with a clear glass edge, making the set very attractive. The menu controls give an easy way to customize the picture settings and navigate internet features. As with many similar Samsung sets, there is optional wifi connectivity (via a special dongle) to access several internet features, including Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, VuDu, Blockbuster, YouTube, Pandora, Hulu, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo widgets and much more. Other apps can be added, some are free and some are available at relatively low cost. For more information or to purchase a Samsung PN50C8000 HDTV, visit Amazon.com.
