Samsung's 3D plasma sets have finally made it to store shelves. That's welcome news, especially if you like a little choice when it comes to your plasma purchases.

Both the 7000 and 8000 series plasmas offer 3D capability and extras like Internet@TV that let you access social media and video streaming services. They've got 1080p resolutions, an ultra-thin design and an increase in energy efficiency over last year's models.
