Samsung UN60D8000

 

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.

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

"Beautiful TV. Picture, sound, styling, all great!"

 

Love the Smart Hub. No longer need my Roku or Apple TV.

None that I can find so far!

Consumer review by:

"Excellent PQ but Microdimming needs to improve!"

 

If your thinking of buying this panel in the 55 inch size jump to the 60 inch as I got it for close to the same price when Vanns had an Amazon Labor Day Special and when I set it up its the smallest 60 inch panel Ive ever seen because its so...

best tv handsdown you can get right now not much different from the 8000 series in my opinion everything is awesome from the picture to the built in wifi to the already loaded downloadable apps bought mine from sears so i didnt get the 2 free 3d...

Great picture,multiple apps, 3d technology ready tv is the real deal and high hd quality

"This has been a great TV so far"

Swivel stand, 3D glasses included, double sided remote, look

Game mode is on/off not display mode hard to switch. qwerty keyboard side is not backlit like other side of remote, If you hold the remote in your right hand it fells weird as that is the fat side of the remote
