Samsung UA55F8000 3D TV Review

 

Samsung, the global electronics leader is on a serious marathon run, and somehow no other electronics manufacturer seems to catch up with them. Be it product launches and new technologies Samsung is simply leading the race because of its positive...

Models in Samsung F8000 series

Excellent Black levels for an LED TV ; Superior brightness and color ; Most beautifully designed TV of the year ; Smooth fast-motion video resolution ; Super-fast user interface

Poor off-axis performance ; Wide TV stand may limit placement flexibility ; Remote takes getting used to

Simply put, the F8000 offers the best picture quality we’ve seen this year from an LED-based LCD TV.

Samsung UN55F8000

 

It might surprise you to learn that mighty Samsung, the dominant force in TVs for the last few years, has a less-than-dominant history in CNET TV reviews. The company's last two top-of-the-line LED LCD series, the UND8000 and UNES8000 , produced "just...

The Samsung UNF8000 LED LCD TV delivers excellent picture quality with deep black levels, accurate color, effective video processing and a uniform screen; stunning minimalist design with hairline bezel and low-profile stealth stand; mind-boggling...

Extremely expensive; wide stand; cable box control scheme still inadequate for heavy DVR users.

The excellent yet expensive Samsung UNF8000 is a tour de force of LED LCD TV design, features, and picture quality.

Ladies and gentlemen: The Samsung F8000 show is about to begin.

Consumer review by:

"Don't Buy Samsung"

 

This is one class action lawsuit about a different issue with their TVs

TV was great for the first 2 years

My Samsung TV has the notorious "white dot" issue that many other Samsung TVs have. A defective chip made by TI was installed and Samsung will not fix despite the huge number of complaints. Cost of repair is $500-600. Customer service is of no help.

Consumer review by:

"A superb television."

 

We are really enjoying this new set. We opted for the 46" version, which is plenty big. We love the built in camera for Skyping with friends all over the world. The feature set is awesome and we use Netflix and Amazon Instant regularly. The touch pad...

Black levels, power consumption, various interfaces, features, style.

Stylish but perhaps unnecessarily so WRT the stand.

"Excellant TV!"

 

Before ordering, I read the many techie reviews of the smaller 8000 models, so I thought I would write about the nuts and bolts things I love about the new set for older people like me.

Picture quality is stunning

Expensive

Consumer review by:

"Best Edge Lit HDTV with deep blacks and rich color"

 

You get what you pay for. It's awesome!

Micro Dimming Ultimate, 1200 CRM, LED Edge Lit, Evolution Kit Ready

Pricey, but not too crazy.

TECHRADAR 2013 - RECOMMENDED!
