Samsung 8000 series plasma
Hauntingly similar to the TruBlack filter advertised on LG's PK750 and PK950 models, the Real Black filter on the Samsung 8000 is said to "reduce the onscreen glare caused by ambient light, so blacks and shadow details are as crisp and defined as possible." We're looking forward to comparing this set to the LG, as well as to Panasonic's 2010 models.
One other extra separates the 8000 from Samsung's less-expensive plasmas: dejudder processing, which appeared in a couple 2008 plasmas but not in any from last year. Samsung calls the effect Motion Judder Canceller (MJC), and, in any case, we expect videophiles to leave it turned off. The 8000 is also compatible with 1080p/24 material, much like the company's 2009 models.
Samsung PNC8000 features:
- Real Black filter
- dejudder processing
- slim 1.4-inch deep panel
- 3D compatible
- 2D to 3D conversion system
- Interactive capability with Samsung Internet @ TV and Samsung Apps

Samsung didn't specify screen sizes for the PNC8000 series, nor did it list pricing or availability beyond saying simply "2010." We'll update this section when we have more information.
