Consumer review by: Sukhdeep (reevoo.com)

Samsung UE55F8500

 

Internet connectivity is excellent. It looks great. Images/colors appear washed out but I've yet to fully calibrate the tv...I hope that improves things otherwise I will be disappointed with the image quality.

Consumer review by: Alan (reevoo.com)

Samsung UE55F8500

 

Used with a Blu-ray 3d the picture is great. It is a very satisfying television on virtually every level.

Typical Samsung, it takes a while to understand how the remote etc works and the e-manual is ok but you have to refer to both the screen and remote settings at the same time as the remote which becomes confusing. In the end I downloaded from Samsung...

Great picture quality

Hand control is a little tricky and a bit gimmicky
