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.

Good Picture and sound. The skype is very easy for the family to use so much so the grand parents bought one. Lots of connectivity i have a hard drive with photos and programmes which is constantly hooked up and a memory stick for basic tv pause and...

Gestures menu pops up if you are having a cup of tea in front of the tv. Voice control can be activated by a childs scream
