Samsung Series 8 UE46B8000 - 46in LCD TV

 

John takes a look at the top of the range version of Samsung's ultra-thin LED backlit TV range, the UE46B8000.

Despite initial concerns that the UE46B8000's edge-based LED lighting might heavily compromise the TV's picture quality in the name of nothing more substantial than a little extra design slimness, as well as another set of dismal image presets, this is...

Samsung UE46B8000 review

 

Samsung has produced some cracking TVs this year, and its 8000 series LCD with LED backlighting leaves us mightily impressed

Extraordinarily thin and stylish design ; excellent spec ; terrific all-round pictures from all sources

Wireless dongle costs extra

The performance is as good as the styling - what more is there to say?

Samsung UE46B8000 review

 

Just 30mm deep, Samsung's flagship LCD TV also sports LED lighting and 200Hz processing

The majestic and surprisingly affordable UE46B8000 provides more proof that LED looks destined to rule the TV world

Samsung UE46B8000 LED TV review

 

Samsung 8 series LED TV offers good looks and decent performance

Great picture quality ; Green design ; Lots of features

Online service needs expanding ; Black levels from some sources seem flat ; 200Hz can cause picture artefacts

Combines design glory with genuine eco benefits and stunning picture quality

Samsung UE-46B8000

 

With just a few minor glitches, Samsung are pointing the way forward for LCD technology ..

Black levels, Motion handling ability, Colour

Some minor backlight inconsistencies

With their LED equipped screens you get the feeling that Samsung are pushing LCD technology to extreme; an extreme that is however, with a few minor glitches, producing some of the best pictures we have seen from any TV. While there are those that will...

Samsung UE46B8000 LED sidelit LCD HDTV

 

Samsung's controversially-named range of "LED TVs", which are of course, LCD TVs which use white LEDs as a light source, have made press lately for falling foul of Britain's Advertising Standards Authority. The said authority claims that the company's...

Samsung B8000 (UE46B8000) LCD TV Review

 

It's slim. Very, very slim.

User-accessible Greyscale controls allow for easy calibration ; Calibrated colour reproduction (thanks to 3D CMS) is excellent ; Incredibly thin display is one of a kind ; Great SD video processing ; 200hz Motion Plus can be configured to increase...

Annoying screen brightness fluctuations with dark or near-dark material ; Poor light uniformity thanks to sidelighting ; Intrusive behind-your-back video processing can cause loss of detail with high definition content, requiring Game Mode to stop it ;...

When I reviewed Samsung products in the past, I would often close by saying that the company produced potentially great displays, with some software quirks to anticipate and work around as part of the package. The UE46B8000 is the example of Samsung's...

Samsung UE46B8000

 

this is a beautiful looking TV, and before i bought it tick most of my boxes. the energy saving is practical, it is fairly easy to use but I'm technically minded so it came easy to me anyway. dlna is a good feature to have and has come in very handy...

now where do i start. first of all the price is very expensive, very over priced for what you get. now believe it or not the main feature you want from a tv is the picture quality and this is where is fails in a big way, you can check forum after forum...
