Samsung UNES8000 review: Samsung UNES8000

 

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 LED TV for the money on this price range. This TV picture is plain WOW picture quality. Samsung did an awesome job on design, features and quality. Before I bought the TV I spend a lot of time researching different reviews about Sony, Panasonic,...

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.
