Samsung UN46D8000

 

Samsung D8000 series information: Our review of the UN46D8000 LED TV from Samsung is based off of our experiences with the 55-inch UN55D8000 TV. The observations below also apply to the other sets in the Samsung D8000 series, including the 60-inch...

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 UN46D8000 TV and its barely visible bezel. The TV makes a big visual statement whether it is turned on or not.

Samsung UN46D8000 LED HDTV Review: Delicious Design, Excellent Features, and Great Image Quality

 

With its Series 8 models, Samsung can lay claim to one of the skinniest bezels in the business: less than 0.25 inch between the edge of the 46-inch UN46D8000YF and its 1080p LED-backlit LCD panel. And because the bezel is mostly clear, with a silvery...

Top-notch image quality ; Outstanding feature selection ; Very good color in 3D scenes

Somewhat expensive ; Minor motion issues

The Samsung UN46D8000 preserves Samsung's reputation for state-of-the-art technology in a full-featured, 1080p 46-inch set, but it does cost more than some very strong rivals.

Samsung UN46D8000 Review – 46-inch LED LCD HDTV

 

There is very little chance of finding fault with in this 46-inch set from Samsung. The screen size is not too bad considering that the seamless glass design hardly makes you feel that you are watching a TV. With the bezel being reduced to a minimum,...

There are several things to talk about as far as connectivity issues are concerned. Along with 4 HDMI and 3 USB ports, you have built-in Wi-Fi, Skype access, AllShare and ConnectShare giving you the maximum options for connecting to people as well as...

Samsung UN46D8000

 

The Samsung UN46D8000 is a 46-inch LED 3D HDTV that has top-class image quality, both in 2D and 3D images, as well as a ton of Internet-enabled applications. While it is on the expensive side, you do get a pair of 3D glasses and Wireless-N support.<p

Samsung UE46D8000

 

The UE46D8000 is a stunningly designed, heavily featured and high performance TV only really let down by some 3D crosstalk.

Stunning design ; Exceptional brightness and colour ; Extensive multimedia features

Needs care with set up ; crosstalk with 3D ; Minor backlight bleed even after calibration

While the UE46D8000 isn?t without its problems ? its 3D crosstalk, its average sonics, its minor backlight inconsistencies, its over-aggressive presets and the fact that it costs ?100 than the identically specified but slightly less glamorous looking...

Samsung UE46D8000 Review

 

With onboard browsing, streaming, apps and 3D, could this be the smartest TV ever?

This Spring sees a new generation of TVs hitting the market, and Samsung’s 46in D8000 is the first to appear. Switch it on and you’re greeted with a homescreen dubbed the Smart Hub. Styled like a smar

Samsung UN46D8000

 

I purchased this TV because I was left with the impression I would be able to read and work my e-mails, but to my dismay I cannot. I feel angry for being duped and very very disappointed. A few weeks after purchase, the remote control literally fizzled...

Almost returned it due to the "soap opera effect". Every TV show I watched looked like it was a soap opera. Googled and apparently you need to disable motion plus I believe it's called. Basically you need to turn off 240hz for non sports content....

Ultra thin bezel unlike any other TV on the market. Despite what the other reviewer said this model does have WiFi, although if your like me and stream 3D mkv files to it you'll want to use ethernet anyways. Love the backlit remote, definitely the best...

First one was defective, and from reviews I've read elsewhere that's a common theme. It's a great TV if you can get one that works! So be sure wherever you buy it has a prepaid return process. The shiny display reflects my table lamp into the picture,...
