 Samsung's PN50C8000 is a high-definition, 3D-capable plasma flatscreen television with full 1080p display capabilities. It has a resistant screen coating that decreases glare to enhance black regions of the picture. It has a very high dynamic contrast ratio and a 600Hz subfield motion refresh rate. It also has Samsung's "AllShare" feature that allows wireless connections to computers and mobile devices, and therefore video and other media streaming capacities. Since it can connect to the Internet (either wirelessly with an adapter, or via an ethernet cable), it also has several built-in Samsung applications such as social networking and video rental programs. This model does not include 3D glasses, though Samsung offers some packages that include these and a Blu-Ray player.
