Samsung UE55H8000

 

Does Samsung's flagship Full HD TV for 2014 pale against its UHD sibling?

Excellent 2D and 3D picture quality ; Easy to use smart TV system ; Good sound quality ; Has all UK catch-up TV services

Curved screen can be problematic with reflections ; Might feel expensive once its rivals are out

Finally, we’d suggest caution around the UE55H8000’s dynamic contrast system. For while it can marginally improve the image’s contrast, it can also make dark scenes look unstable thanks to the fluctuating brightness levels it causes. So given that the...

Samsung UE55H8000 review

 

Samsung's full HD TV flagship gets the curve

Attractive curved-screen design ; Excellent picture quality ; Sophisticated Smart TV system ; Good sonics

Expensive for HD set ; Curved screen exaggerates reflections ; Picture presets not helpful ; Steep interface learning curve

Although it looks expensive for a 55-inch full HD TV in these increasingly 4K times, there's no doubt that the UE55H8000 is a fantastic HD picture performer and a heck of a looker to boot.

Samsung UE55H8000 review

 

Editor's note 1 May 2014 : After the original version of this review was published, Samsung informed us it had sent us a pre-production sample. It has now sent us a final production sample to test and we have updated the review and score to reflect its...

The Samsung UE55H8000 produces beautiful pictures when viewed in brighter rooms, has an excellent smart TV system and its audio quality is good too. Its curvy nature and stylish design means it also looks the business.

It's hugely expensive (around £2,000) for a Full HD TV.

Supremely stylish and bursting with features, the UE55H8000 produces excellent pictures, but it's very pricey for a Full HD model.

Samsung UE55H8000 (H8000) Curved Full HD LED TV Review

 

Steve Withers takes a look at Samsung's new flagship Full HD TV that, like its higher resolution brothers, also sports a curved screen.

Good blacks and contrast ratio ; Reference greyscale and colour accuracy ; Excellent video processing ; Superb Smart TV System ; Effective motion controller ; Low input lag

Build quality could be better ; No built-in camera ; Relatively expensive

The Samsung UE55H8000 is the kind of accomplished TV that we have come to expect from the Korean giant, with an irresistible combination of style, features and performance. Whilst you can debate the viability of a curved screen on a 55-inch TV, there's...

Samsung UE55H8000

 

It's very good TV all around. The curve make a difference but not massive.

Huge difference in the price between curve and flat screen with the same characteristics. I would still pay extra for that feature but it doesn't worth nearly 50% more.

TV has a fault. HDTV display is OK watching Freeview HD channels.. Really irritating, The sound at times fails to work. For an example; watching BBC1 HDTV, the TV studio audio between programmes is OK and live programmes. Watching TV films is the sound...
