Samsung UN46C8000 46-Inch LCD TV

 

(Editor's note: This review of the Samsung C8000 series is based on our hands-on testing and evaluation of the 55-inch UN55C8000. According to the manufacturer, the image quality and features should be equivalent for each TV in this model line.)

Great video and solid audio in a thin package ; Top-notch Internet apps, including Skype

Pricey for its class ; Remote could be easier to use

The Samsung C8000 series delivers outstanding video and audio, plus a ton of well-designed Internet and media player features--for a hefty fee.

Samsung UNC8000 review: Samsung UNC8000

 

Better black levels than other edge-lit sets; accurate color with linear grayscale; numerous picture controls and tweaks; sleek styling with inch-deep panel; superb streaming and widget content via well-integrated Apps platform; 3D compatible; 2D to 3D...

Extremely expensive; subpar uniformity and off-angle viewing; lighter black levels than full-array local-dimming sets; black areas tinged bluer; 3D exhibited ghost images along edges (crosstalk); does not include 3D glasses; terrible remote.

Its 3D is still a work in progress and its 2D picture quality comes up short of the best available, but the high-end Samsung UNC8000 series still offers superb features, solid performance, and unique style.

Samsung UN46C8000 LED LCD HDTV Review - Intro

 

The Samsung UN46C8000 ($2799 MSRP) is a gorgeous, 46-inch LED-edge lit LCD TV. But it's not trading on its looks. This is one of the new breed: a 3D display. We're not sure about this whole 3D craze, either, but we shook the UN46C8000 down with every...

The Samsung UN46C8000 ($2799 MSRP) is a very good television, but it's not perfect. The contrast ratio was fantastic, according to our tests. But because we couldn't disable the dynamic contrast ratio, it may have gained some ill-gotten points. You may...

The UN46C8000 is a fully loaded, 3D-capable TV from Samsung's 2010 LED lineup. This thin, stylish 3D TV requires the use of active-shutter 3D glasses and comes with perks like Samsung Apps, WiFi-readiness, Skype capability, and DLNA media streaming...

Review: Samsung UN46C8000 46-Inch LCD TV

 

The Samsung C8000 series delivers outstanding video and audio, plus a ton of well-designed Internet and media player features--for a hefty fee.

All this goodness doesn't come cheap, however, since it's suggested retail price makes the C8000 one of the more expensive HDTVs lines. You can certainly findgood sets for a lot less these days. But if your wallet can take the hit, the C8000 series...

Samsung UN46C8000

 

The Samsung UN46C8000 ($2799 MSRP) is among the first of the new 3D displays. As such, you run the risks associated with any first-generation products, most notably that the technology will fail to catch on. Should that happen, though, you'd still be...

3D display is not the only high-end feature on the Samsung UN46C8000. Its incredibly thin frame - only 0.9 inches - is possible thanks to LED edge-lighting, rather than the traditional back-lighting. The TV is bound in a striking brushed aluminum...

Samsung UN46C8000 Review – 46-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

Being among the initial breed of 3D TVs to be released this year, these TVs may have to combat the reluctance of the people to opt for something so completely different. The additional 3D glasses needed are not exactly what the viewers are going to...

This set has an unimaginable mega dynamic contrast ratio of 8,000,000:1 which is a sure indicator of great blacks and purest whites. The images are sure to take on a natural look with the colors being seen in the maximum number of shades. And with 3D...
