A sexy beast
31 May 2011
Summary: i purchased this tv because it really had some sex appeal; i mean, it stood out with its attractive brushed frame and chromed out quodpod support system. second to none i say! i was torn between rating it 5 stars or 4 simply because its feature list promised a number of bells and whistles which might have been a little quirky since they have not been tweaked to perfection eg. internet and apps. these quirks might fail to impress the tech savvy and the gadget gurus.
Summary: I bought this tv as a replacement for my 42" Visio LCD. I wanted to try the 3D experience, and it is awesome! However, what I learned is that the HDMI has to go directly between the tv and the 3D bluray player (I purchased the panasonic) to get the best 3D possible. I tried connecting through my surround sound and found the 3D picture to be lacking, once I went directly through the bluray player the picture was excellent.
Summary: This is a nice tv. Very good picture quality. But the tv blinks randomly on streaming Netflix videos. We have a very good and high speed internet service. Anyone else has/had this problem? Please let us know how you resolved it. It is very annoying. This issue is listed in Samsung's website 'Troubleshooting' section under 'Network Setup and Usage > Internet@TV > NetFlix > While Streaming Netflix The Picture Will "Blink" Or Change Quality'.
Summary: I am revising a review I submitted the first week I had this HDTV. I definitely have mixed feelings after having the un55c8000 for almost a month. There is alot to like, and several things that are very frustrating about this HDTV. At the end of the day, I returned it to Amazon and purchased the Samsung plasma 58c8000.
Summary: I am a very regular puchaser from Amazon.com, I recently purchased this Samsung TV a couple of weeks ago from a local dealer here only because I got a longer warranty. Otherwise, I would have purchased from Amazon.com. I am writing this review, to hopefully help those others looking for a TV in this price range. I was skeptical at first purchasing a Samsung TV, having owned only Sony and Hitachi TV's, which have been pretty good.
Summary: The UN55c8000 240hz LED HDTV is a beautiful television. From it's deep blacks to it's less than an inch design to it's sleek look. The options on this tv are plentiful. Internet tv and 3D-ready. Firmware updates keep this tv working and performing it's best. There are still small amounts of (crosstalk) Ghosting or double images as some call it on 3D viewing films. At an amazing contrast ratio of 8,000,000 to 1 and 240 hz make pictures and movies look amazingly realistic.
Summary: Equipment: UN55C8000 BDPC6900 3D Blu ray player 3d-kit with Monster vs. Aliens Ps3 slim Finally decided to write this review after playing with the set for 2 months. This is probably one of the best picture qualities I've seen so far. I had been comparing LEDs for a while and finally settled with the UN55C8000. The shipment arrived promptly however, I decided to wait till the TV was installed on the wall.
Summary: I had a problem from day one with juttering only on select channels ... USA, SCI-FI, TBS, TNT, Food Network, and a few more that I watch and this drove me crazy and was very upsetting considering when I thought I was getting one of Samsungs top of the line TV's. I even noticed it a few times when watching a Blu-ray, but the problem was mainly with watching TV.
Summary: I've been watching the Samsung UN55C8000 for ~3-months now and I enjoy every moment of watching this TV. First thing to do is to hook-up the TV to the internet and update the Firmware. This will make a big difference. This TV is crystal clear with EXCELLENT black levels. The only gripe I have with this is the viewing angle. The picture washes out rapidly beyond ~30 degrees (viewing from the center to the side). Hence the 4-star.
Summary: When I ordered this TV about 6 weeks ago, I was expecting SD transmissions on a screen size of 55" to be a little poor, but this is definately NOT the case!! SD pictures are very good on all but a few channels, & the HD & Blu-Ray pictures are absolutely stunning. Internet@TV is a good app especially now that BBC iplayer is available.
