Samsung UN46B8000

 

As the most expensive horse in Samsung's stable of edge-lit LED-based LCD TVs, which the company calls "LED TVs" in most of its marketing materials, the UNB8000 series is differentiated from its cheaper herd mates by the addition of 240Hz processing....

Produces relatively deep black levels; mostly accurate color; very good dejudder processing; sleek styling with 1.2-inch thick panel; extensive feature set with Yahoo Widgets, network streaming, and lots of built-in content; energy-efficient

Expensive; less uniform screen than other LCDs; poor off-angle viewing; lower contrast in dark scenes; shiny screen can cause reflections in bright rooms; benefits of 240Hz difficult to discern; scarce analog video inputs

The expensive, stylish Samsung UNB8000 series has its share of picture quality drawbacks, but a firmware update helps, and the thin frames are worth serious bragging rights.

Slim But Pricey LCD Turns Heads

 

With its 1.2-inch silhouette, this set turns heads even when it's switched off. But we were equally wowed by the LCD's crisp, accurate colors and jaw-dropping

A plethora of ports. Network streaming. LED backlighting makes the screen brighter than the bridge of the Enterprise

It’s not “Wi-Fi ready” if it requires a separate adapter. No Netflix streaming, but Samsung has hinted that it's on the way. Picture quality drops sharply with viewing angle. Crappy remote hampers navigation. Pricey

Samsung UN46B8000 Review – 46-inch LED HDTV

 

This series from Samsung uses the edge-lit LED backlight system. This replaces the liquid crystal diode technology of the LCD panels. A very thin depth of the TV is possible because of the LED lighting. The major attraction of this model is the 240 Hz...

This scene of Hally Berry from X-Men The Last Stand shows how high contrast can appear on the 46B8000

Good deep black levels – Avg. to good contrast
