Samsung 55-inch D8000 LED TV - Top Notch HD


Jam packed with a long list of features such as Samsung's Smart Hub, 3D capabilities and micro dimming, the new high-end D8000 series promises to deliver the best possible performance. We test out the myriad of functions the TV puts at our disposal too...

Excellent HD performanceSmart Hub feature greatly expands functionalityClean user interface and several customization options

New Quad stand does not provide adequate stabilitySD performance is unimpressive3D performance not up to mark

Samsung UE55D8000


Samsung's first second-gen 3D TV is here. If you see what we mean... Plus, like it or not, it's packing some serious 'Smart TV' heat.

Gorgeous near bezel-free design ; Superb picture quality in 2D and 3D ; We like the Smart TV engine

Apps quality is hit and miss ; Minor crosstalk with 3D ; Very slight backlight consistency flaw

Samsung has clearly piled an enormous amount of effort into the 55D8000, and the results speak for themselves. It's a TV that's as excellent as it is innovative. If this is the shape of things to come in 2011, you can consider us very excited indeed.

The Samsung UE55D8000 is a brilliantly engineered TV that ushers in a new internet connected TV era. Oh, and it also hosts apps and looks wicked

Striking minimalist design ; Content rich Smart Hub portal
; Freeview HD and Freesat HD tuners

No side-mounted AV inputs ; Motion Plus Artefacts

Samsung UE55D8000 review


The super-stylish Samsung UE55D8000 is a clever feat of engineering

Slim and desirable ; lengthy specification ; punchy, vibrant pictures from all sources

Never gets fully to grips with motion ; mediocre sound

Not quite the state of the art, but a feat of engineering nonetheless

Samsung UE55D8000 review


A couple of issues back, we brought you our first impressions of Samsung's flagship UE55D8000 when it arrived too late in the day to run through our Tech Labs. To recap, this is a £2,500 55in edge LED 3D set sporting an insanely thin bezel of just 5mm,...

Stunning 2D pictures and very good 3D pictures; excellent Smart TV functions

Still a little crosstalk in very bright scenes; limited viewing angle

Samsung UE55D8000


With no immediate replacement for the extraordinarily over-engineered 9000 Series on the horizon, Samsung's waif-thin Series 8 models have become the new LED flag wavers for the brand. At first glance the models look rather similar, but the new Series...

Eye-catching design, excellent high-def images, dynamic Full HD 3D, expansive Smart Hub content, Freeview HD and Freesat HD tuners

Motion Plus picture processing introduces motion artefacts on its higher settings, no side-mounted USB or AV inputs will make life awkward

Samsung has pulled out all the stops with the 55UED8000: 3D, Freeview HD/Freesat, net connectivity, media streaming and audacious design. Picture quality is terrific and the new Smart Hub portal offers enormous potential. The screen reviewed here is...

Samsung UE55D8000 review


Samsung's flagship LCD TV introduces Samsung Smart Hub

Stunning design ; Superb 2D pictures ; 3D playback ; Benchmark-setting online system

Subtle colour inconsistency ; Poor presets ; Some 3D crosstalk

The Samsung UE55D8000 is arguably the most eagerly anticipated TV of 2011 and it only takes a cursory glance at its design and spec sheet to see why.

Samsung D8000


The Samsung D8000 is a 55-inch LCD television which includes Smart TV features such as web browsing, apps, 3D playback and video-on-demand.

The 55-inch D8000 is available from April 2011 for AU$4699 while a 60-inch version will come later in the year. While this is the company's flagship model, it's a far cry from the 10 grand price tag of last year's premium C9000 TV.

Samsung D8000 (LED)


Samsung impressed the world with their new 2011 TV line-up at CES 2011 in Las Vegas. The new TVs are not only slim but Samsung has also managed to reduce the TV bezel to make it appear almost invisible. In this review we will examine the D8000 flagship...

HD picture quality; Response time and scanning backlight; Black depth; Almost no clouding; Smart TV platform and functionality; Slim design with inputs pointing to the side; 3D picture quality improved drastically

Out-of-box picture settings; Color gradation; Shadow detailing not perfect; Lacks an accurate picture preset

Samsung D8000 is very slim and very elegant. The new extremely thin bezel looks great and all inputs on the back of the TV are either pointing down or to the side. Samsung’s new Smart TV platform is very interesting, with an App Store, social TV and a...
