Samsung Series 8 UA55D8000 - Not Worth It


Samsung's new Series 8 range of LED-backlit, LCD TVs are finally here. Now, the Series 8 line from Samsung isn't designed for every day users, but specifically for those who are looking for the ultimate TV they can get their hands on. The new UA55D8000...

We were highly impressed by the UA55D8000’s performance across all HD videos that we watched. The smart TV functions were mainly overshadowed by the poor response time from the remote control. Playing games, browsing and using the controls can be...

Samsung UN55D8000


Samsung D8000 series information: This review is based on our hands-on experience with the 55-inch UN55D8000 TV. However, our observations also apply to the three other sizes in Samsung's D8000 series of LED TVs, including the 46-inch UN46D8000,...

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 UN55D8000 TV and its barely visible bezel. The TV makes a big visual statement whether it is turned on or not.

Samsung UN55D8000 55-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D LED Smart TV


Ever since CES back in January, we've been hearing that 2011 will be “the year of 3D.” Happily, Samsung isn't focusing entirely on the third-dimension with its new D8000 Series HDTVs: the 55-inch UN55D8000 also promises superlative 2D performance and...

Even so, we couldn’t recommend the D8000 if it didn’t deliver on picture quality, and thankfully the Samsung is one of the best screens around today. Neither 2D or 3D mode feels like an afterthought, and even if you’re not convinced by the...

Samsung UN55D8000


The Samsung UND8000 LED-based LCD TV shows the company's considerable technological know-how being brought to bear on a simple design goal: to make the "TV" itself disappear as much as possible when turned on, leaving nothing but the picture. The...

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.

Samsung UN55D8000 Review – 55-inch LED LCD HDTV


This is one of the best models introduced by Samsung this year. It has almost all the highlighted features of this year which includes 3D capability, Smart TV, 240 Hz refresh rate and many more. The set impresses on first looks with its seamless glass...

Another highlight of the model is the Real 240 Hz with Clear Motion Rate. This ensures that blurring is almost totally eliminated and you get very clear pictures even in the high action scenes. The image response time is significantly lowered so that...

Best 55-inch 3D LED TV


The 55-inch Samsung UN55D8000 is a technological masterpiece, reviewers say. It's packed with just about every top feature for 2011, including an edge-lit LED backlight with local dimming and a 240 Hz refresh rate to minimize blur....

Good picture quality, 3D-capable, internet connectivity with built-in web browser, edge-lit LED backlight

3D requires costly glasses, screen uniformity not the best, expensive

Samsung UN55D8000 55 inch LED HDTV


A TV is not just a TV. They would be the ones that can't tell the difference between a $750 and one that costs $3000. The Samsung UN55D8000 is in the upper echelon of prices so can it deliver elite class performance? How does a QWERTY keyboard remote...

Stunning picture quality ; Sleek design with super narrow bezel ; Low power consumption ; QWERTY Remote ; Much improved 3D Performance ; Includes two 3D glasses

We’re at the unfortunate end to the review. The Samsung UN55D8000 delivers exceptional performance in all categories from looks, features, power consumption and picture quality. Some may argue there are some color uniformity issues but in my eyes that...

Samsung UN55D8000YF 3D LED LCD HDTV


Thin was in last year, and the trend continues without an end in sight. Manufacturers aren't likely to quit the race until they have HDTVs you can use for wallpaper.

Thin was in last year, and the trend continues without an end in sight. Manufacturers aren't likely to quit the race until they have HDTVs you can use for wallpaper.

I won’t soft-pedal my concerns about the Samsung’s non-uniform screen lighting. It keeps this set from earning a Home Theater Top Pick. But this issue may bother some viewers more than others. And no other LCD 3D set I’ve seen can better this one in...

Samsung UN55D8000 55-inch Class LED 8000 Series 3D HDTV Reviewed


Three years ago we would have told you that a paper-thin HDTV with no real edge would have been impossible. Today Samsung has delivered but how does this HDTV hold up to thicker sets that actually have an edge on them? Andrew Robinson puts this Samsung...

So is there anything redeeming about the UN55D8000 performance? Ifyou're a sports fan (think NBA or NHL) or watch nothing but romanticcomedies on Blu-ray, then my friend - the UN55D8000 is tailor made foryou. In fact, it's brilliant. If you like to...
