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...

There’s no doubting that $3,500 is a lot to pay for a TV. Samsung has at least attempted to sweeten the deal as much as possible by making the UN55D8000 more than just a dumb screen. The Smart Hub functionality is genuinely useful in places, and while...

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

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...

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 3D LED/LCD TV (TPV 102)

 

Although last year's Samsung 9000 series 3D LED LCD TV was the clear winner in the style department with a super-svelte look, the next tier down 8000 series models were actually better performers, as they had a more sophisticated LED edge lighting scheme.

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...

Samsung UN55D8000YF

 

If you want to really impress your guests, a 3D experience in your own living room is an excellent start. The Samsung UN55D8000YF features a high-resolution display with excellent contrast and vivid colors. It's a little difficult to navigate the...

The Samsung UN55D8000YF has a contrast ratio of 25,000,000:1 and built-in Wi-Fi

The internet interface is a little clumsy

Because of the high-resolution images and fast refresh rate, the Samsung UN55D8000YF is a great way to watch 3D TV.
