Samsung UN60ES8000

 

Samsung UNES8000 series information: The review below is based on our time spent with the 60-inch UN60ES8000 TV. However, the observations made also apply to the three other models in this series. Samsung says that sets offer identical features (save...

Brilliant, bright picture ; Excellent black levels ; Superb color accuracy ; Gorgeous design ; Upgradable hardware

Some light bleed from edges ; Poor off-axis performance ; Merciless with low-quality sources

If you want the best, you’ll have to pay for it, but Samsung’s ES8000 series is certainly one of the best LED televisions we’ve ever seen.

Samsung UN60ES8000

 

The Samsung UNES8000 LED TV boasts stunning design and more features than any TV on the market. For that you'll pay dearly, but if you can afford it and want the cutting edge of TV technology in your living room -- pre-OLED , at least -- then stop...

The beautifully thin Samsung UNES8000 LED TV seems to have come from a year or two in the future. Its massive feature set includes a touch-pad remote, IR blaster, four pairs of 3D glasses, motion and voice command, and the industry's most capable Smart...

Lighter black levels and imperfect screen uniformity hamper its picture significantly, especially for such an expensive TV. Samsung charges too much for extra features that are largely unnecessary and poorly implemented.

Although it hits plenty of high points, the Samsung UNES8000 LED TV cannot ultimately justify its high price.

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

Voice, motion, and touchpad controls are unreliable. Screen shows significant light bloom on the edges. Only three HDMI ports

Samsung UN60ES8000 Review – 60-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

The 60-inch LED TV model with an ultra-slim bezel is one of the higher end models launched by the manufacturer. Along with improved video quality, resolution and active 3D compatibility, the TV set comes with some of the networking and connectivity...

You will also like the wireless internet access option offered by the model through the built in Wi-Fi. Samsung has further integrated the model with a dedicated app store. You can download and install compatible apps on the TV set to enhance its...

"Worst TV Ever!"

 

Had this TV for 2 months and worked great. All of a sudden it started glitching with random lines, frozen picture, and would reboot. This all started slowly at first and got progressively worse over time. Now its to the point that it doesnt even do...

Great picture when it comes to BluRay and HD channels

Poor sound

"Best HD picture I've seen yet!"

 

I replaced my 58" Samsung Plasma HDTV with this 60" LED and I'm not disappointed. At first I was a little disappointed with the black uniformity, but found out in calibration that using the "Movie" setting doesn't yet work well with uniformity. After I...

"Unreliable TV with lots of bells and whistles"

 

Great Picture quality, Emerging Voice and Motion Control, Smart features with wireless internet

Unreliable, New emerging technology of Voice, Motion, IR Blaster and those are cool yet fails to work most of the time.

Consumer review by:

"Wants to be a Grand Slam, but more like a 2-Run Homer"

 

To give this some context I've now had the 60" ES8000 for 5 days and have sampled HD cable TV, Blue Ray, and Apple TV streaming HD.

Picture Quality is perfect,

Basic remote is not universal,

I'm glad to see this now. I was just in Best Buy two days ago looking at the ES8000 55″ for purchase. It's only $2400.00 now and I think it's the best TV on the market at that price range. Thanks DT for confirming what I already knew but still had some...

A problem for Canadian customers. The tv comes with an IR Blaster, which allows you to controll the cable set top box with the Samsung remote (finally). The remote can be paired to the set top box, however it also asks for the cable provider and region...
