Samsung D8000 (UE-40D8000) 3D LED LCD TV

 

Almost no bezel and stunning design but are we as impressed with the picture quality?

Excellent Contrast and Black Levels ; Almost Borderless Design ; Superb Calibrated Greyscale and Gamut ; Smart Hub Shows Promise ; Well Designed Menus and Generous Calibration Controls ; Freeview/Freesat HD Tuners ; PVR Functionality ; Built-in WiFi ;...

Occasional Motion Processing Meltdown ; Supplied Remote Control is Disappointing ; Reflective Frame ; Noticeable Crosstalk at Default 3D Settings ; Smart Hub GUI is a little Cluttered

Excellent picture quality, both standard and HD.

Like most ultra slim sets the sound suffers, a sound bar can help.

This has to be the most stylish TV out there at the moment. The image quality is fantastic whether DVD or HD channels. Cant wait to hook it up to BlueRay.
