Samsung UE40ES8000


Samsung continues to impress with excellent Blu-ray picture quality and smart content

Crisp, detailed images; well-designed and friendly interface; great control app and interactive controls; extensive features

Pricey; not the finest DVD upscaler

The 40ES8000 is one of the more expensive sets we've tested at this size, but it is bristling with features. Its comparatively poor showing with DVD upscaling gives other sets a certain edge, but it’s a gorgeous screen that certainly sets a high standard.

The problem with this and other similar TVs is it makes programs look like they're filmed on a camcorder in a cardboard set. You need to party with the settings a lot to get it right ; Not super impressed with the voice activation or hand
