Real nice TV

Summary: I was concerned a bit about reviews on screen uniformity, but it didn't bother me that much when I first turned on the set. It's been a few weeks but nothing's really bothering me. If I hadn't read the official reviews I probably wouldn't have noticed it at all. The only thing that had me worried was this huge horizontal line appearing at the bottom ofthe screen once, but this went away once the tv was warmed up. Havn't noticed anything abnormal since.
Summary: So far I like this TV. The picture from a high definition source is excellent. The picture from a standard definition source is not quite as good as the CRT set it replaced. I have not tried 3D or netflix, but it has a free movie app (about 150 titles) that works well. The most annoying thing about the TV is that the name Samsung just below the screen is very bright as is the white light just below the name. In a darkened room they shine in your eyes like a searchlight.
Summary: This television is beautiful, both on and off. For about two years I have heard person after person complain about the dreaded "soap opera" effect from tv's with 120 or 240 fps. Having had a Sony XSRD 60 inch for the past four years, I was in no rush to get another tv, but I finally decided to go with the 55 inch UND8000, and I now kick myself I didn't do it last year. I know that some people think the tv looks "too real", but I love the realistic nature of the image.
Summary: I order the Samsung UN55D8000 and bundle after shopping around for the best deal. This is the best deal, when you combine the 3D Blue Ray Player, glasses and cords. The TV is just awesome and exceeds my expectations. Got this just the other day in time for March Madness. Don't hesitate to order the deal today.
Summary: We could not be happier with this TV if we tried. Fantastic crisp, clear picture. So good that the 2D looks 3D. Everything has new depth and superior quality over the TV we replaced. All I can say is WOW! We have played 3D movies in the Blu Ray that was part of the bundle (along with extra 3D glasses), and totally love the 3D pictures we are getting. The HDMI cables provided made for very easy set-up with the Blu Ray. Just plug and play!
Beautiful Picture, very classy design, excellent video format support

Summary: COMPARISON: I spent a long time researching LED TVs before buying the Samsung UN55D8000. The final test was a side by side comparison of a Samsung UN55D8000, an LG Infinia 55LW5600 and a Sony Bravia 55HX820. All three are 3D Edge lit LEDs, with different technologies for local dimming (controlling the light dark levels in different areas of the screen).
Amazing. Great investment, hope it holds me over until the OLED tvs are released.

Summary: I am thoroughly impressed with the product. Outside of the fact that there is no amazon prime for this device, it works well. I had trouble in the beginning and had to call amazon customer service for a new one. There was a dead pixel spot on my screen that didn't show any picture. I called amazon about the flaw and they gave me a new tv in exchange for the old one. Amazon's customer service is amazing and I have no real complaints about the tv or amazon.
Pros: This TV is good for 2D viewing. Color quality and sound are good. Visual appearance is better than other brand-TVs in market.
Cons: 3D glasses flickers and causes headache. I would go for passive 3D TVs where, they uses cheap theater glasses. Their warranty service is horrible. 3D glasses failed in 3 months,and warranty caused me nightmare.
