Samsung UE40F8000


Say hello to the best 40in TV the world has ever seen.

Superb picture quality ; Stunning space-saving design ; Video-rich online services

Interface impenetrable in places ; Picture presets favour high contrast over natural colours ; Superfluous gesture and motion controls

All this said, at times the interface is a little impenetrable and vague, especially when you first get the TV - sometimes it feels as if the TV is dictating to you what to watch rather than simply helping you make more informed choices. The social...

Only down side so far is sound which has to be used on high volume

Picture quality

When watching a channel on Freesat, program info cannot be obtained on another channel without going back to EPG. Voice recognition can be turned on by spurious noises in the room.

Samsung UE40F8000


. I am deaf in one ear ,but the sound quality was noticeably better than my old set,but I decided to buy a sound bar to enhance the sound a bit more. It worked a dream after a slight problem in setting it up.....

The instructions for connecting the sound bar I found a bit misleading ,I had bought the required optical cable and tried to connect it to the DVD player to the sound bar but wrong fitting,I then tried to connect the TV to the sound bar using the audio...
