Samsung UE40C8000 review

 

Samsung's gorgeous 40-inch skinny screen is an edge-lit LED delight

Excellent picture quality ; Improved internet TV offering ; Gorgeous styling and ultra-black screen ; Classy remote control ; Easy to record to USB devices

Expensive ; Dark areas lack detail ; Cross-talk issues with 3D ; Occasionally tortuous menu system ; Some internet video services ineffective

Samsung UE40C8000 review

 

Best Premium 40-42in TV, Awards 2010. This TV has everything you could need, and the performance to match its slimline looks

3D ; styling, specification ; great picture-making, with motion a particular highlight

Insubstantial sound from built-in speakers ; the obligatory 3D cross-talk issues

Best Premium 40-42in TV, Awards 2010. Chic looks when it’s switched off, great pictures when it’s switched on – what more do you want?

Expensive, 3D glitches remain to a degree

Like the larger models in the range, the UE40C8000 improves on the 3D performance of its C7000 sibling and seems to have addressed (if not completely removed) those annoying backlight issues. If you are open to buying an LCD or Plasma and want the best...

It's great. It was a bargain.

The PIP doesn't let you mix HDMI inputs. It has to be with a builtin TV tuner which I don't use.

Design, picture quality, build quality, weight, ease of use. Set up and connections

Sound could be crisper. Instructions could be simpler, easier not to use them and muddle through!

Great looking TV, very slim design and 3D very impressive.
