Samsung UN55ES8000 55-inch Smart TV Review

 

Samsung's D8000 was our TV of choice back in 2011, and the company is hoping to repeat its success with the new 2012 flagship, the Samsung UN55ES8000 . A 55-inch behemoth, though with strikingly delicate design, the ES8000 ticks just about every box...

Samsung's ES8000 is a worthy update to its predecessor, and the company demonstrates its edge over much of the competition with the Smart TV functionality. Is it worth the humongous RRP? That's a null point, given retailers are already discounting it...

Samsung UN55ES8000F

 

With its voice- and motion-controlled interface, Samsung's ES8000F series does a lot to advance HDTV design, but some of the new features aren't quite ready for prime time.

Ambitious user interface. Beautiful design. Excellent white and black levels. Accurate color. Comes with 3D glasses

Voice, motion, and touchpad controls are unreliable. Screen shows significant light bloom on the edges. Only three HDMI ports

Samsung UN55ES8000HDTV

 

Samsung's ES8000 series is their high-end flagship for 2012, and it shows. The amount of extra features and interfacing options on this TV are quite staggering: a traditional remote, Samsung's new smart remote, and an IR blaster all come in the box....

At its current MSRP of $3799, the Samsung UN55ES8000 might seem overpriced. But there are some things to consider before staking that claim.

Samsung UN55ES8000F 55" SmartTV Review

 

This is Samsung's latest Smart TV, the UN55ES8000F. This is a rather large upgrade in terms of both the hardware and software. Samsung reduced the bezel to around 1/2" in thickness and updated the OS.

Samsung UN55ES8000 LED Smart TV

 

When you're buying a new TV, you have nothing short of a lot of manufacturers and models to choose from. It's easy to get a fairly basic, good quality TV for under $800, but it's sometimes hard to resist the temptations to look at those models that are...

The UN55ES8000 doesn't come with a small price tag, running you about $2500, but if you're looking to upgrade your home theatre and want to do it right, then this might just be the TV you're after. The UN55ES8000 has stunning looks and comes loaded...

Samsung UN55ES8000 LED/LCD HDTV

 

The Samsung UN55E8000 LED HDTV is another active 3D HDTV from the company. But as Adrienne Maxwell found during her review, the UN55E8000 is packed with features and capable of quite a lot.

We're back to the original question: What do you want from your next HDTV? How much do you want it to do? If all you care about is video performance, then you can find other TVs that offer comparable, if not better, all-around performance at a lower...

Samsung Series 8 (UA55ES8000RLXL) Smart TV Review

 

The Samsung Series 8 TVs are possibly some of the smartest HDTVs in the business. Some really neat add-ons here - gesture control, face recognition, voice navigation and even a touchpad remote. But most importantly, it is the delightful performance...

Brilliant HD content handling, Tested contrast ratio among the highest in TVs, Edge to edge design is classy, Solid table stand, with unique design, Gesture & voice controls are fun add-ons, Touchpad remote very useful for browsing

Don't see a regular use of voice & gesture control, Display is very reflective, SD content will be disrespectful to the TV

Samsung UN55ES8000F

 

The Samsung UN55ES8000F is an extremely competitive LED TV. With local dimming, 3D capabilities, an impressively thin screen, very low power consumption and cutting edge smart interaction technology, this TV is perfect for saving on energy bills...

The Samsung UN55ES8000F has one of the thinnest panels of all the TVs we reviewed

While impressive in concept, the smart interactive capabilities still have a way to go before they are fully functional

Because it offers fantastic display specifications and an impressively flat panel, this Samsung LED TV lands a top spot in our lineup.
