Samsung UN55D8000 Review

Digitaltrends
11 October 2011
  • Conclusion: There’s nothing else quite like the UN55D8000 TV and its barely visible bezel. The TV makes a big visual statement whether it is turned on or not, and when it is turned on, the sense of depth you get when watching is a special kind of entertainment unto itself. Unfortunately, in order to make such a thin TV, some trade-offs had to be made, and one of them must have been screen uniformity.
  • Pros: Stunning slim bezel and profile, Two pairs of active 3D glasses included, Comprehensive picture adjustment options, Capable of extreme brightness, Excellent color when properly calibrated, QWERTY Bluetooth remote
  • Cons: Brightness uniformity problems, Highly reflective glass panel, Picture settings can’t be copied to other inputs

Samsung UN55D8000 3D LED/LCD TV (TPV 102)

AVguide
14 July 2011
  • Excerpt: Although last year’s Samsung 9000 series 3D LED LCD TV was the clear winner in the style department with a super-svelte look, the next tier down 8000 series models were actually better performers, as they had a more sophisticated LED edge lighting scheme.

Samsung UN55D8000 55″ LED 3D HDTV Review

Hardware Canucks
5 December 2011
  • Conclusion: About four weeks ago we looked at Samsung’s UN55D7000 and while it hit quite a few high points there were some glaring problems that made us shy away from recommending it. On paper at least the D8000 is supposed to succeed where its sibling failed but the question on everyone's mind remains very simple: is this flagship HDTV worth almost a grand more? The answer to that isn’t as straightforward as some may have hoped.

Samsung UE55D8000 review

homecinemachoice.com
8 September 2011
  • Excerpt: A couple of issues back, we brought you our first impressions of Samsung’s flagship UE55D8000 when it arrived too late in the day to run through our Tech Labs. To recap, this is a £2,500 55in edge LED 3D set sporting an insanely thin bezel of just 5mm, plus Samsung’s new Smart TV functionality, which combines a superb new onscreen menu hub (providing instant access to just about every input, app and content source) with a web browser and a much stronger app offering than...

Samsung UE55D8000

What Hi-Fi?
4 September 2011
  • Excerpt: In purely aesthetic terms, the Samsung UE55D8000 takes some beating. Forget, briefly, its full-fat specification (Freeview HD and Freesat tuners, 3D with glasses included, Smart TV online functionality, Skype) and just look at it. Somehow Samsung has squeezed LED backlighting behind a bezel less than 5mm deep, and this on a screen of less than 3cm depth. It’s proportioned like a gigantic credit card.
  • Pros: Slim and desirable, lengthy specification, punchy, vibrant pictures from all sources
  • Cons: Never gets fully to grips with motion, mediocre sound

Samsung Series 8 LED TV review: Best picture quality in its class and a swathe of features built-in

Good Gear Guide.au
4 September 2011
  • Excerpt: The Series 8 is Samsung’s top-tier LED TV, with all the features of lesser TVs like the Series 7 and Series 6 as well as boosts to picture quality and video processing. If you can afford to pay for it it’s an excellent TV with no crippling flaws — the few problems are mainly restricted to the TV’s Web features. However, its Series 8 plasma rival has almost equal picture quality and offers larger screen sizes.
  • Pros: Excellent design, Plenty of integrated features, Best-in-class Full HD image quality
  • Cons: Inbuilt Web browser is mediocre, QWERTY remote is initially confusing, Standard definition upscaling isn't as good as Sony's

Samsung UN55D8000 55-inch LED (LCD) Smart TV

CANADA HiFi
23 June 2011
  • Conclusion: The Samsung UN55D8000 has welcomed improvements in picture quality over the previous year. The TV’s wider dynamic range with the Smart LED function turned on, bright white capability, and accurate HDTV colour makes it a strong contender in the LED television category. With the addition of the suite of Smart TV features, the QWERTY remote control, and the many apps available for the most social-minded, there’s a good chance that natural selection will make the Samsung a...

Samsung UE55D8000 review

Pocket Lint
15 March 2011
  • Excerpt: With no immediate replacement for the extraordinarily over-engineered 9000 Series on the horizon, Samsung’s waif-thin Series 8 models have become the new LED flag wavers for the brand. At first glance the models look rather similar, but the new Series 8 screens swap the titanium metal back plate for lightweight plastic, and cut corners by confining connectivity to the rear of the screen.
  • Pros: Eye-catching design, excellent high-def images, dynamic Full HD 3D, expansive Smart Hub content, Freeview HD and Freesat HD tuners
  • Cons: Motion Plus picture processing introduces motion artefacts on its higher settings, no side-mounted USB or AV inputs will make life awkward
