Samsung UN55D8000 Review
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

Summary: The Samsung Series 8 (UA55D8000) 3D LED TV is one of the best panels on the market for watching Full HD content. The level of detail it can display from a high quality source is excellent. It's also packed full of features -- even if some of them aren't quite up to scratch -- and has an excellent design. If you can afford to spend the coin it's a quality product, even though some of its integrated Web features aren't as well implemented as we were hoping.
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
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.
Pros: Slim and desirable, lengthy specification, punchy, vibrant pictures from all sources
Cons: Never gets fully to grips with motion, mediocre sound
