Samsung UN46ES8000


Samsung UNES8000 series information: The review for UN46ES8000 is based on our time spent with the 60-inch UN60ES8000 model. According to Samsung, all models in the series (including the 55-inch UN55ES8000 and the 65-inch UN65ES8000) have similar...

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 UN46ES8000


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.

Samsung UN46ES8000F


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

The picture is the BEST!


I\'m using this as a replacement of a 40 inch, very heavy, 6 year old LCD TV. The 55 inch wouldn\'t fit but the 46 inch left about 5 inch gap all around the the TV. SO wish there was a 50 inch LED LCD model. The Samsung is great as usual! The standard...
