Samsung UNB8500 review: Samsung UNB8500

 

Samsung UNB8500

Deeper black levels than any HDTV available aside from Pioneer Kuro; solid shadow detail; reduced blooming compared with other local dimming LED-based LCDs; accurate, highly saturated color; excellent video processing with adjustable dejudder; numerous...

Expensive; poor off-angle viewing; some blooming effects; benefits of 240Hz difficult to discern; glossy screen reflects ambient light.

It costs a mint, but Samsung's local dimming, LED-based UNB8500 series delivers the best picture quality of any LCD we've tested.

Samsung UN55B8500 55 Inch Television Review

 

If you watch football or read CNET, chances are you've noticed ads for Samsung's so-called LED TVs. The company has released three series of these super-thin LED-based LCDs so far ...

Samsung UN46B8500 LED LCD HDTV Review - Intro

 

The Samsung UN46B8500 is a high-end TV, if that isn't evident enough from the $3599 price tag (MSRP). It's thin and sexy, to be sure, and the box is stamped with all sorts of fancy add-ons. Whether those features justify the price is another question....

The Samsung UN46B8500 is an excellent performer, no doubt. In that regard, it at least partly justifies the huge cost. We loved the color performance, contrast ratio, deep black levels - even the audio performance. Even factoring in these testing...

Samsung UN55B8500 LCD HDTV

 

Samsung, it appears, is going LED in a big way. Thirteen of its LCD sets in the 6, 7, and 8 Series use LEDs for back-lighting instead of CCFLs (cold cathode fluorescent lights), which until recently have been nearly universal in flat-panel LCD HDTVs.

Samsung UN46B8500

 

The Samsung UN46B8500, a 46-inch, 1080p LCD TV, is a top-notch performer with an ultra-thin profile and LED-backlighting with local dimming, hence its hefty $3599 price tag. Also included in that price, presumably, is the ability to access streaming...

The UN46B8500, like most of Samsung's 7000 and 8000 series TVs, is a higher-end unit designed to be the hub for your home theater. As such, it has all the latest ports, including 4 HDMIs, Ex-Link, DLNA support, and 2 USB ports for music, photos, and...

Samsung UN55B8500XFXZA Review – 55-inch LED HDTV

 

Trying to provide the ultimate in fast moving sequences, Samsung has enhanced the refresh rate to 240 Hz in this HDTV, which is excellent for watching car races or an action movie sequence. Every single pixel comes to life in this HDTV. There is no...

A roomy sidebar takes care of displaying the widgets on the screen of the Samsung UN55B8500XFXZA. These widgets come alive to give access to the Internet, with stocks, news and weather being available at the tip of your fingers. And what’s more! You...

In my last Samsung review, I dismissed that set's Edge Enhancement control. But we live and learn. On the UN55B8500, this adjustment had a subtle yet positive effect on the image, with no visible white-line enhancement or other artifacts (when the...

Samsung UN46B8500 LED HDTV Preview

 

One of Samsungs new LED backlit HDTVS, the UN46B8500 - or the LED 8500 as Samsung calls it - features a slim design and a fairly strong feature set. The 46" member of Samsung's 8500 8 Series comes in at just over an inch and a half thick and at right...
