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


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 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...

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 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...

"Guaranteed Beautiful Picture with Seamless Edge"


Great Investment.

Watching 3-D movies appears flawless with the appearance of a seamless edge. Glasses are lightweight and more comfortable than the previous model.

3-D glasses only charge when the television is on.

"On sale, Great TV!"


Great picture, excellent dark scenes, sexy look, and with the help of a sound bar I love this TV. I found it brand new nearly half off and a 'must buy' in my book! I don't believe I would buy at full price.

1) Great picture in blu-ray, games, streaming, and 'all share'

1)Both the menu and smart hub are cluttered and can be distracting at first

Consumer review by:

"This Smart TV is not an smart buy!"


The Features doesn't Justify the Price!

Very good picture quality and great 3D view.

The Web Browser is none sense...extremely slow. Better off with a laptop or any other device to surf the internet.

"Great Picture - Amazing Design!"


To begin, this is not a bargain basement TV that you purchase at a warehouse sale for a third bedroom. You are paying a premium price for a well engineered, minimalist in appearance set. There are plenty of TV's that offer the same screen size that are...

+ Picture is really superb

- Minimal ghosting problems but all edge lit based tvs will have that
