Samsung D8000 series information: The following review of the Samsung UN60D8000 LED TV is based on our hands-on experiences with the 55-inch UN55D8000 set. The observations made are applicable to the other sets in the D8000 series including the 46-inch...

Stunning slim bezel and profile ; Two pairs of active 3D glasses included ; Comprehensive picture adjustment options ; Capable of extreme brightness ; Excellent color when properly calibrated ; QWERTY Bluetooth remote

Brightness uniformity problems ; Highly reflective glass panel ; Picture settings can’t be copied to other inputs

There’s nothing else quite like the UN60D8000 TV and its barely visible bezel. The TV makes a big visual statement whether it is turned on or not.

The Samsung UN60D8000 retails for a whopping $4299 (MSRP). That's well over a $1000 more than the equivalently-sized plasma from Samsung that includes nearly all the same features. Believe us, there are a lot of features on this TV. Samsung pulled out...

Great contrast ratio ; Smooth motion ; The best 3D we’ve seen so far

Terrible viewing angle

The Samsung UN60D8000 ($4299 MSRP) packs in every feature we’ve ever heard of, along with quite a few we’d never heard of. The TV is as thin as they come, with the panel measuring only 1.2 inches. The gleaming, 4-legged pedestal is also a pleasant...

The Samsung UND8000 series has a unique, visually stunning design that minimizes the frame around the screen for a nearly all-picture look. It produces deep black levels with accurate color, along with excellent video processing and improved 3D picture...

The UND8000 series is extremely expensive and exhibits poor screen uniformity with excessive brightness variation and banding. Details in shadows were obscured somewhat, and the glossy screen reflects a lot of ambient light. Smart Hub lacks Amazon...

The Samsung UND8000 TV delivers best-in-class looks and features, but its picture quality--thanks to uneven screen uniformity--is ultimately not as good as that of many less expensive models.

More than the sum of it's parts

Slim, studded with ports, stuffed with features, but so-so performance and a steep price

LED TV is the ultimate mix of Smart technology and picture performance

Gorgeous styling ; Rich, vivid pictures ; Smart portal is second-to-none

It's not cheap ; Sound performance doesn't do the screen justice ; Smart Hub can be overwhelming

Samsung UE60D8000 review

 

It looks a million dollars, and almost costs as much too, but the Samsung UE60D8000 produces extremely punchy pictures and has a stunning line-up of features. It's marred slightly by inconsistent backlighting and some 3D crosstalk.

Bright, vibrant images ; Good sound quality ; Gorgeous design ; Great Internet features

Crosstalk in 3D images ; Inconsistent backlight

Samsung really has done a great job of making the UE60D8000 look supremely stylish, to appeal to the premium buyer. It boasts excellent Internet features and media streaming capabilities. For the most part, its pictures are top notch too....

Great looks, good smart functionality, detailed picture, bold colours

Not overly comfortable with motion, pricey for the size, sounds weedy

A show-stopper on the looks front, but its performance can’t really justify the price

Expert review by:

Samsung UE60D8000

 

Its astounding design seems to defy the laws of physics, and at times its pictures are stunning. But there are niggles if you look for them...

Jaw-dropping design, Phenomenal brightness and colour, Excellent multimedia features

Backlight inconsistencies, Limited viewing angle, Some crosstalk with 3D

REVIEW: Samsung UE60D8000 3D TV

 

When it comes to 3D TV, bigger is always better. At 60 inches, Samsung's UE60D8000 is one of the largest screens you can get in your house before going into 3D projector territory, and is backed by an impressive array of connected TV features. However,...

Without question, the UE60D8000 is a fine TV. Apart from a few backlighting issues its 2D and 3D visuals are up there with the best of them, and in Samsung's ever more powerful Smart TV app hub, it's got one of the best web-connected feature sets to...
