Samsung UE46ES8000


A stunning design with a tip-top performance and class-leading online system? That'll be another Samsung flagship TV, then.

Eye-popping design ; Exceptional feature count ; Excellent 3D and 2D performance

The gesture control system could be better ; Occasional backlight bleed, especially with 3D ; Picture presets are poor

Samsung UE46ES8000 review


Following hard on the heels of its 55 inch sibling, this is an amazing television that's a real flag in the sand

Class-leading design ; high spec ; gesture and voice control ; good in 3D ; class-leading 2D

So-so sound ; rivals make Samsung’s Smart Hub look a little cluttered.

The UE46ES8000 is the benchmark set against which all other TVs will be measured in 2012

Samsung UE46ES8000 review


Samsung's new flagship 46-inch TV pretty much rocks

Irresistible design ; Outstanding 2D ; Very good 3D ; Leading online system

Poor picture presets ; Gesture control can frustrate ; Backlight bleed with 3D ; Average audio

If Samsung is going to retain its current position as the world's number one TV brand, it needs to set the bar high with flagship products such as the new UE46ES8000. Especially now that recently reviewed LG televisions such as the 55LM660T and...

In complete contrast, the voice control system works well. It's activated by the command, “Hi TV!” and provided you don't mumble, will offer up a string of vocal prompts The Samsung has three HDMI inputs, plus SCART and component sockets, PC VGA, three...

Samsung UE46ES8000 review


The UE46ES8000 has three HDMIs, plus SCART and component, PC VGA, three USBs (one of which can be used to timeshift to a hard disk), a CI Slot, Ethernet and an optical digital audio output. Wi-Fi is built-in, too. There's even a stickered-over ‘Smart...

The UE46ES8000 is a bold stab at redefining the high-end TV market, one that almost pays off. Even without its voice and motion control party tricks, this would be considered a highly desirable 3D TV, with a strong online proposition and characteristic...

Samsung UE46ES8000


A beautiful looking flagship TV that performs almost as well as it looks with an impressive feature list ..

Design, Features, 2D performance

Occassional backlight inconsistencies

Presumably in an effort to make daytime showroom pictures appear bright and vibrant, contrast and backlight presets are too high. With minor adjustments, you can enjoy the UE46ES8000 as it was meant to be - a trully great TV; with the added benefit of...

Stunning image quality and very easy to use. Friend said "it's like looking through a window to the (sport)". Haven't set up the various gesture/ face recognition/ multi IR interface yet and don't really need them. Buy this for the quality of picture -...

The sound isn't great but not terrible either.
