Summary: Thought this new side lit LED was the way to go but its a marmite TV you will love it or hate it. Love is thin screen and sleek looks. or When I had to live with it I found it unbearable, I am probably quite fussy being an former AV technician (not TV and that was a few years ago). First of all the sound is not bad its terrible, or at least very poor, but to make things worse no ear phone jack socket which could easily be connected to another source, NO phono output...
Pros: Picture looked great in store playing HD promotional TV
Cons: Too Many things to list here, auto dimming, very poor sound, cloudy edges
Summary: Bad experience with Samsung on this TV. (UE46B8000) Had clouding and backlighting issues off center screen and asked samsung to fix TV. Panel was replaced on first repair but problem was still there. After 2nd repair had same issue. Samsung repair center called before 3rd repair to say clouding is expected on LED TV's and TV was working fine.... problem was my expectation that TV should be perfect (you would hope so paying 1700 for a TV).
Pros: Design... picture when watching during day time
Cons: Clouding issues which Samsung says come with TV
Summary: Samsung UE46B8000 DON’T BUY IT. I am very disappointed with the picture quality on non HD content. Lets face it most of what you watch is not HD or blue ray. I have found the picture suffers from blurring on slow movement. i.e when looking at faces which are still then slightly move the original image stays present so give the impression of blurring.
Pros: some colours when watching Blue Ray are fantatsic
