Samsung UN65ES8000

 

Samsung UNES8000 series information: Our review of Samsung's UN65ES8000 is based upon our experiences with the 60-inch UN60ES8000 TV. All the models in the series, including the 46-inch UN46ES8000 and the 55-inch UN55ES8000, have similar components...

Brilliant, bright picture ; Excellent black levels ; Superb color accuracy ; Gorgeous design ; Upgradable hardware

Some light bleed from edges ; Poor off-axis performance ; Merciless with low-quality sources

If you want the best, you’ll have to pay for it, but Samsung’s ES8000 series is certainly one of the best LED televisions we’ve ever seen.

Samsung UN65ES8000

 

The Samsung UNES8000 LED TV boasts stunning design and more features than any TV on the market. For that you'll pay dearly, but if you can afford it and want the cutting edge of TV technology in your living room -- pre-OLED , at least -- then stop...

The beautifully thin Samsung UNES8000 LED TV seems to have come from a year or two in the future. Its massive feature set includes a touch-pad remote, IR blaster, four pairs of 3D glasses, motion and voice command, and the industry's most capable Smart...

Lighter black levels and imperfect screen uniformity hamper its picture significantly, especially for such an expensive TV. Samsung charges too much for extra features that are largely unnecessary and poorly implemented.

Although it hits plenty of high points, the Samsung UNES8000 LED TV cannot ultimately justify its high price.

"What works, works very well"

 

Check the blogs, but Samsung has had recurrent issues with the wifi. Out-of-the-box, it works well and then it just quits. It's less than 30 days, so I could have moved to a different TV, but the pros outweigh the cons considerably, so I am happy with...

Dual CPU is fast. OOTB, contrast amazing - blacks are deep as life & whites are as brilliant as the eye could take - easy to adjust to anything between. Great tones. $ for $ very good value. Primary use is visual, using a separate audio system.

Audio is typical of today's TVs - inadequate. Also, remote can't control volume on anything except the TV, even cable remote is better. Blurs on occasion. Not sure of recommended motion settings. Samsung still delivering wifi problems.

"Best LED TV for the money on this price range."

 

Best

Vibrant color and accuracy

1) Voice and Motion control is a feature that is cool but not something you will use everyday if use at all. It needs some improvements, the good thing is that they can be done via a firmware update.
