Summary: The picture quality is excellent on the TV. The service from Samsung is horrible. After owning the TV for just over a month, it starts randomly rebooting itself. I called Samsung for repair and after two repair centers contracted by them said they could not service my area, Samsung agreed to send a replacement. I was told by Samsung the delivery company would take the old TV off of the stand it was mounted to and place the new TV onto the stand.
Excerpt: I work in custom installation and programming. Samsung Smart TV's and the UN Series have built in features that make it hard to work with. Example 1: Using the UN65F8000 with a Sonos play bar: the Playbar learns the IR codes on the Samsung remote to control the volume on the Play Bar, but when you disable the TV Speakers, an unavoidable message appears when you use the Samsung remote to adjust the volume.
Pros: Bright display, Lightweight, Realistic color
Cons: can't disable smart hub, cant turn off apps, cant turn off smart features, Did not meet expectations, no serial control, too many messages
Buyer be AWARE of Shortcomings - This product is not what is advertised !!!!!

Summary: We purchased 2 Samsung UN65F8000 in the past yr. Because it had great reviews of quality/picture resolution/ warranty etc etc Samsung UN65F8000 65-Inch or anyother Samsung SmartTV DO NOT support Adobe flash player which is a really huge shortcoming of Samsung. This is a well hidden fact by Samsung.!!! which really sucks and cripples the Web functionality of the SmartTV. Called Samsung support and their position is that Adobe flash player is to new!!!
BUYER BEWARE!!! FAILURE OF BOTH MY 7000 AND 8000 SERIES SAMSUNG SMART TVS

Summary: I will NEVER buy another SAMSUNG TV again. I should have learned my lesson when my recently purchased 7000 series Samsung 3D TV failed. I thought it was an isolated incident and couldn't possibly happen again so I decided to take the plunge and buy another Samsung. This time a top-of-the-line 8000 series with all the bells and whistles. Within 3 weeks of owning, a blue line ran vertically down the right side of my screen.
Summary: I received the tv and immediately notice a dead pixel, I contacted amazon, and in 5 days I received a replacement. I inspected the new tv and noticed a dead pixel, so I contacted amazon again, and in 5 days I received another replacement tv with a dead pixel. It is hardly noticeable, but if I'm paying that much for a tv, I want one with no defects. Amazon issued me a full refund.
Summary: Just got this TV. Great picture. Was very please until I tried to use Netflix via the Smart Hub and could not get the Dolby Digital sound to work on my AV receiver. Turns out that Samsung doesn't support Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound via Smart Hub. This is a very serious short coming. I won't have bought this set if I had known this in advance.
Excerpt: Умная железяка, но настраивать и пользоваться - большое разочарование. Пульт маленький - маленький кусок говна, коим пользоваться совершенно невозможно. Запутанная система меню, с помощью которой настройка на 1 спутник займет весь день. Переключение каналов с помощью меню на экране выполнено ужасно, нет общего списка - листать телегид из 1000 каналов самоубийство.
