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 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

In complete contrast, the voice control system works well. It's activated by the command, “Hi TV!” and provided you don't mumble, will offer up a string of vocal prompts The Samsung has three HDMI inputs, plus SCART and component sockets, PC VGA, three...

Samsung UE46ES8000 review

 

The UE46ES8000 has three HDMIs, plus SCART and component, PC VGA, three USBs (one of which can be used to timeshift to a hard disk), a CI Slot, Ethernet and an optical digital audio output. Wi-Fi is built-in, too. There's even a stickered-over ‘Smart...

The UE46ES8000 is a bold stab at redefining the high-end TV market, one that almost pays off. Even without its voice and motion control party tricks, this would be considered a highly desirable 3D TV, with a strong online proposition and characteristic...

Samsung UE46ES8000

 

Class-leading design, high spec, gesture and voice control, good in 3D, class-leading 2D

So-so sound, rivals make Samsung’s Smart Hub look a little cluttered

The UE46ES8000 is the benchmark set against which all other TVs will be measured in 2012

Samsung UE46ES8000

 

A stunning design with a tip-top performance and class-leading online system? That'll be another Samsung flagship TV, then.

Eye-popping design ; Exceptional feature count ; Excellent 3D and 2D performance

The gesture control system could be better ; Occasional backlight bleed, especially with 3D ; Picture presets are poor

Samsung UE46ES8000

 

A beautiful looking flagship TV that performs almost as well as it looks with an impressive feature list ..

Design, Features, 2D performance

Occassional backlight inconsistencies

Presumably in an effort to make daytime showroom pictures appear bright and vibrant, contrast and backlight presets are too high. With minor adjustments, you can enjoy the UE46ES8000 as it was meant to be - a trully great TV; with the added benefit of...
