product description

The Ultra Slimm 850 Plasma TV redefines Plasma TV combining Ultra Slim design (just 29.5mm thick) and high performance features.

600Hz subfields
Ever notice how with plasma screens, motions can get a little jerky? Unless you happen to be looking at one of SAMSUNG’s new plasma TVs. Every frame is seamlessly smooth because we put 10 full subfields into each frame. That’s 600Hz. So contours are crisper, scrolling text sharper and the juddering issue is finally put to rest.

The world wide web just got wider
Can’t decide if you’d rather watch TV or a YouTube video or check your stocks on Yahoo? Do it all on the SAMSUNG TV . An easy to use widget lets you watch, add or delete content. View it all on the roomy sidebar or across the incredibly wide screen. With the SAMSUNG TV, TV goes way beyond just TV.

Content Library
Suppose you feel like watching pictures of gallery or cooking instead of watching TV. Content Library let’s you do that too. Enjoy your own content, from children’s song to fitness. There’s so much you can do with SAMSUNG TV. Including watching it.

Your audience awaits
There’s no excuse anymore for leaving all those great digital pictures and videos in your cameras. All you need with the SAMSUNG TV is USB 2.0 movie connection cord. Just plug it in then instantly, play, save or delete. It even works for your music collection. So now anytime is showtime.

4 HDMI
All it takes is one cable to connect your TV to your other audio and video sources. Our HDMI slot allows you to import all kinds of content without compression including pictures and videos from your digital camcorders and multimedia PCs. Now enjoying it all on a wide HD screen couldn’t be easier.

Ultra FilterBright Plus
Let the sun shine in. Glare and ambient light won’t be a problem for our new plasma screens. Ultra FilterBright plus blocks external light reflections. And at the same time it maximises transmission of internal light. The future for plasmas has never looked brighter.

Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio
Getting a true cinematic experience used to mean going to the cinema. But with Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio true cinematic clarity comes to plasmas. Every frame is saturated with dense, rich colour. Blacks have more depth and the whites are unbelievably pristine. The only thing missing is a large head blocking your view.

100Hz Motion Plus
Never has fast – paced animation or special effects in movies looked smoother than they do with 100Hz Motion Plus technology. By analyzing and extending action frames, 100Hz Motion Plus assures nothing goes by in a blur. Instead, special effects are crisper. Animation smoother. Sports sharper. And viewers are more glued to their screens.

Wide Colour Enhancer 3
Next to actually being there, the best way to experience true to life colours is with our Wide Colour Enhancer 3. It covers all the colours in the RGB spectrum, and brings out deeper shades of the most natural colours like magenta, cyan and yellow. Which you get to enjoy from the comfort of your sofa.

Cinema Smooth
The difference between a movie on TV vs. the silver screen has always been, well, big. But the technologies of our Cinema Smooth and our Movie Mode have changed all that. Images are now smoother and colour temperatures closer to real film. Bringing you closer to a movie theater experience.

Energy Saving
Using less energy doesn’t have to mean sacrificing picture quality. Our Energy Saving Mode adjusts the backlight to give you a richer picture while at the same time consuming less energy.
