Summary: I gave this 4 stars because one of the 3d glasses that came with the TV did not work. I have to fax and sent and wait and wait for ever to get it resolved. Instead they have just sent me a new pair so I could send the broken one back I have to sent all kinds of proof. TV was great but to get things resolve from Samsung sux.
Summary: This TV w/ true refresh rate of 240 looks very sharp. The included Internet apps are better than average, and one would definitely love the 4 HDMI connections. One would need a bigger living room to fully take advantage of the large size. One main drawback is the black level is still not that good compared with that of Plasma TVs.
Summary: This Samsung is awesome!!! I was very excited when i purchased this tv about two months ago. I was replacing and old Pioneer elite projection tv. In my opinion the picture is second to none. (I have three other Samsung HD tv's that I have purchased over the last 3 years and somehow the continue to improve the picture quality.) The setup was very easy and only took about 15 minutes. I could not have made a better choice for ease of use and picture quality.
Summary: Fast shipping and delivery by Amazon. Screen uniformity is not great but doesn't bother me. Movies look great. 3D works fine. Netflix streaming is ok. Netflix through PS3 is much better. A little overpriced but a great TV set.
Summary: The TV is great! My family and I could not be happier. TV arrived undamaged and the packaging for shipping was awesome. Do not take the free delivery though or you will be sorry - not worth saving a few bucks. The free shipping Amazon uses for this item is a service called Home Direct USA. Should have known there would be a problem as soon as I tried to track my package and had a problem with their web links from the e-mail that they sent.
Summary: Just purchased the UN65D8000(X-something-something). Noticed a flashlight-like spray of light coming up and to the left, from the bottom center of the screen. Also, some minor light-clouding around the rest of the border was visible. These annoying light effects were only visible when dark screen was shown. Used it for 8 days with no change in the abnormality.
Review by Daniel regarding the Cons of 65" Series 8000 LED- "Soap Opera effect"

Summary: I would like to comment on Daniel's thorough review of the 65" series 8000. I own the Series 8000 60" LED and you can solve the "Soap Opera effect when watching BD movies. Pull up the menu and turn off the "Auto Motion Plus". This will eliminate the soap opera effect and will provide a pleasing "film" quality. I can say that I enjoy my 60" Series 8000 LED Samsung Hope that helps.
Very awesome television. Software is a bit lacking, however.

Summary: I'm going to try and break this review down in sections as best as possible. I purchased this TV about two weeks ago now from a local fry's electronics. I'm a big time technology geek, and I write software for mobile devices as my profession. Enough about me, and on to the TV! Screen [5/5]: Absolutely amazing. With the small bezel around the screen, it looks like you're hanging a moving photograph on the wall, not a traditional television.
Summary: After several days of complaining to Amazon they have finally removed the FULL description of the product because of the miscommunications about the 0.2" bezel that doesn't exist on this model. It was a long and difficult complaint process, having been initially told that I needed to discuss the issue with the third-party Amazon vendor whom I purchased the itme from, I told them firmly that the bezel miscommunication was NOT the vendor's problem!
