Samsung UN65F8000BF

 

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

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

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.

Samsung UN65F8000 Review

 

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 ; TV stand is as wide as the TV itself ; 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 UN65F8000

 

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.

Samsung UE65F8000

 

Samsung thinks big with this 65-inch beauty.

Excellent all-round picture quality ; Stunning design ; Unprecedentedly sophisticated and content-rich smart TV system

Picture presets not always helpful ; Steep learning curve with the Smart TV features/interface ; Minor backlight inconsistency flaws

Final suggestions are that you turn off all NR circuitry for HD viewing, and only use the motion processing option on its Clear setting, or not at all. Drive it harder and pictures can look too processed.

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.

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 and 3D...

"beautiful tv"

 

overall i absolutely think this is a beautiful tv with loads of potential. it performs as well of not better than the 4k models i see at the store. it has a social evolution feature i like which means i won't be purchasing a new tv for many years....

great picture, easy to use, loads of features. "smart" compared to lower end models due to the quad core processor, no image blurring during fast movement, thin design, beautiful stand design.

crummy speakers. expensive for a non 4k model.

2nd Samsung TV - Would do it again

 

The sound quality was more than adequate with the built in speaker, until I played a Blu-ray or DVD. For some reason, I have to increase the volume like 6x normal just to hear the movie, it only happens with this input

Awesome picture ; Clear Motion Very Good ; Sports Viewing Perfect

Bad Sound Thru Blu-ray ; Low Volume Thru Blu-ray

Samsung TV - Wonderful After Second One

 

The Samsung TV turned out to be a wonderful TV. The first one sent had a problem and stopped working after only four hours, however, it seems to have been a problem with only the first one received. At this point, we would have made the purchase again....
