Great picture quality, poor quality control

William S. Dubel, Amazon

  • Summary: Picture quality is excellent. Black isn't perfect but better than any LCD I've seen. Clouding is not an issue, and I don't have a "flashlighting" problem. I compared last years 8500 and this years C8000 in store before purchasing; C8000 had better PQ IMHO in store, and I'd take the lack of blooming on the C8000 over the potentially better blacks on the 8500. I gave up on Anynet and purchased a Harmony remote.

Great TV, Poor Samsung Support

  • Summary: TV has great picture. 3D is amazing. Very thin. Does not put out the heat like other flat panel tv's. Lower energy usage. Sharp looking brushed metal edge. Remote control quality is lower than expected with this price point of tv. Only way to connect to internet is wired or through samsung usb wireless linkstick. Samsung made it so no other usb network adapter will work. $70 for theirs, about $20 for any other type. I can not get it to save the settings.

Samsung C8000 (UE55C8000)

  • Summary: Right. The good news first. The picture quality is amazing; the HD and 3D are beyond belief - this is our forst HD TV and we are converts. We are the first people in Jersey to own this TV, and here starteth the problem. When it doesnt work, nobody knows what to do. Aside from the 3D, the internet@TV function was another reason to buy it: you could get apps on your TV; like weather; news; lovefilm; BBC iPlayer; 4oD etc. etc. - well, if I could access it I could.
  • Pros: The quality of the HD
  • Cons: Internet@TV

Good First Step into Full HD 3D, But Not Perfect

Chris Boylan "MrBoylan", Amazon
5 May 2010
  • Summary: Samsung's UN55C8000 LED TV (LED backlit LCD) represents a good first step in full HD 3D technology, but it's definitely not without its flaws. Drawbacks: * High price * Problems handling 24 frame/second material (movies) * Mixed results with upconversion of standard def material to HD * Some crosstalk on native and upconverted 3D content * Some lighting uniformity issues (compared to best plasma and local-dimming sets) Pros: * Nice black levels and shadow detail for a...
