Samsung UN60ES8000F

 

With its voice- and motion-controlled interface, Samsung's ES8000F series does a lot to advance HDTV design, but some of the new features aren't quite ready for prime time.

Ambitious user interface. Beautiful design. Excellent white and black levels. Accurate color. Comes with 3D glasses.

The UN60ES8000 is the 60" sibling in Samsung's groundbreaking ES8000 family of TVs. It's a work of industrial art, with a thin, virtually edgeless panel design supported by a uniquely graceful stand. Picture quality is spectacular, thanks to some of...
