Samsung UN55F8000BF

 

The Samsung UNF8000 series of LED backlit HDTVs offer solid performance and loads of features in a beautiful streamlined cabinet, but its black levels are mediocre and its ports are awkwardly placed.

Slim, stylish design. Bright, detailed picture. Generous feature set.

Blacks could be darker. Ports are hard to reach. Motion commands are erratic.

Conclusion The Samsung UN46F8000 is an all-around solid HDTV available at a near-premium price, with very good picture quality and physical design. Its black level performance could be better and its port placement is awkward, but its overall solid 2D...

Samsung UN55F8000BF

 

As the king of Samsung's 1080p LED HDTVs, the F8000 series flourishes a crown encrusted with resplendent jewels like a quad core processor, voice and motion controls, and a Smart Hub overflowing with apps, social media, and smart recommendations.

Samsung UA55F8000AK 55-inch Series 8 LED TV - A Modern TV for Modern Living

 

With full HD visuals, a new and improved Smart Hub as well as 3D capabilities, the Samsung F800 55-inch TV is one of the high end panels that the Korean manufacturer has made available to the public in 2013. So just how good is this edge-lit LED TV?...

Excellent Design ; Good Smart Feature suite| ; Great Blacks and Greyscale

Lack of VOD services ; Blue tinge to picture ; Active Shutter 3D looks artificial

Excluding 4K resolution, the Samsung F8000 55-inch TV has every feature a modern TV should have. Excellent display performance is married with a functional Smart Hub and active 3D. The price-tag for the 55-inch model is

Samsung UN55F8000 LED/LCD HDTV Reviewed

 

Adrienne Maxwell takes the Samsung UN55F8000 LED/LCD HDTV and puts it through its paces during her review. After putting it to the test, Maxwell came away with some pleasant thoughts about the television.

Versatility is the name of the game with the UN55F8000, in both performance and features. This is an excellent all-around performer that can serve up a very attractive image in both bright and dark viewing environments without a lot of advanced...

Samsung UE55F8000

 

Samsung kicks off its 2013 TV range in suitably dazzling style.

Irresistible design ; Outstanding 2D and 3D picture quality ; Comprehensive and beautifully presented Smart TV features

Gesture and voice controls still frustrate at times ; Samsung's Android and iOS app could be better ; No picture preset for AV enthusiasts

The presentation values throughout are extremely high, though a bit more on-screen information might have been appreciated in places. As would the option to develop a truly personalised home screen like you can with Panasonic’s new system. But as we...

2013 is off to a great start for TVs, with the Samsung UE55F8000 setting the bar high

Remarkably crisp and clear picture ; Sharp edges ; Natural skin tones ; 3D picture is brighter and smoother ; Smart Hub redesign is slicker, More intuitive ; Smart Touch remote control is responsive and fun to use

Voice and motion controls have improved, but still not ideal ; Price ; New stand design needs a wide enough rack for rigid support ; Picture settings need tweaking

Samsung UE55F8000 review

 

The UE55F8000 hits the ground running with its design, which combines an on-trend slender bezel with a dark, glassy finish and built-in camera. However, other designs in this roundup are spectacular too, so the UE55F8000's styling alone won't be enough...

Terrific and stable 2D and 3D picture quality; sophisticated Smart UI

Unhelpful picture presets; dark scenes lack a little punch versus the very best local dimming TVs

Samsung UE55F8000 LCD TV

 

The Samsung UE55F8000 is arguably the most advanced Full HD LED TV you can buy today. Gorgeously designed and generously appointed, it's a screen which will have tech-heads and interior designers dribbling comparable qualities of drool. But while...

Spectacular in every sense, the design is a minimalist triumph, user interface is polished

Picture presets don’t get the best out of the TV, motion handling remains an Achilles heel in an artefact sock, gesture control is still little more than a novelty

There’s no doubt that Samsung’s big F8000 is a formidable example of LED TV art. Both in terms of aesthetic design and feature functionality, it’s a front runner, with images that are blisteringly sharp and vibrant.

Samsung UE55F8000 review

 

UPDATE: while we were wowed by the Samsung UE55F8000 when it launched, newer rivals such as the Panasonic TX-P55VT65B and Philips 55PFL8008 are even more awesome. For that reason the Samsung has dropped to a still very respectable 4 stars. Check out...

Great looks on and off screen, Decent sound, Smarter than your average bear

Iffy voice control
