Samsung UE46F8000 review

 

Of Samsung's forty new screens unleashed so far for 2013, the UE46F8000 is the flagship 46in model. Bestowed with a raft of new measures designed to deliver the best TV pictures the company has ever mustered from an edge-lit LED screen, it also ups the...

Superb HD pictures; refined backlighting control; slick Smart TV; stunning design

Unreliable voice and gesture control; somewhat expensive; bizarre sports/social mode; wide desktop stand

Samsung UE46F8000

 

Grea design, slim line, grea image quality. Can link to Samsung mobile and lots of great apps and features I've still yet to explore.

Requires anchoring down due to prevent it falling forward due to lightweight and screen height. Base design means it still takes a lot of space on tv stand. Would need to wall mount to benefit fully from thinness of screen.

The design is good smart function very good, the apps and internet a lot better than the older cheaper samsung smart tvs.

The sound is average. Motion sensor hit and miss. Voice control hit and miss.

Great picture, excellent design.

Freeview tuner is poor on HD my other tuners return a better signal consistantly. Picture shows many artefacts as soon as it rains. Switching to my Panasonic recorder there is no deterioration. No copper digital sound output only optical.

So far very pleased. Seems an excellent product in terms of picture quality, internet facilities, design etc. Good value for money.

Took a bit of time to find our way around the workings of the various options, but that was probably due more to this being our first "smart tv".

Given I am a technophobe, I was worried about getting an all singing all dancing TV, however it is really easy to use. The image quality is stunning I bought the Samsung surround sound to go with it, which puts the sound quality at excellent, it is...

The voice activated system seems to want to cut in with out you asking it occasionally. Not a problem if you know where the remote control is, can be a bit slow to respond if you have to cancel it with voice commands, spoiling the viewing pleasure. The...
