The Best, with Great Delivery
9 January 2012
Summary: At the time of this writing the Samsung D8000 series is simply THE BEST. Read the details in other reviews. My only complaint is the terrible documentation, and poor phone help. AMAZON DELIVERY Be sure to order from Amazon (direct or "fullfilled by"). Free shipping and delivery was within a week. Delivery is scheduled within a 3 hour window (automatically or your choice); in my case, between 8 and 11 am.
Summary: I've been using the tv for a couple of weeks now, and so far it has delivered phenomenal performance. I also own a Panasonic plasma and a Sony XBR LCD, and this set is just as good, and for a number of reasons, better than these others TVs. And, it looks fantastic mounted on the wall (using the Samsung slim mount). The Good: - I had no problems installing the tv on the wall (though my handyman helped). Took about 30 minutes. - Set-up was incredibly easy.
Summary: In the last two months, I been doing a lot of research on the Samsung UN55D8000 and UN55D7000. I finally decide to settle with the UN55D7000 series. Well, to cut the story short, I had to return the UN55D7000 back three times due to major edge bleeding and clouding on the screen. Yes, three times. I was about to give up on Samsung brand and go with a LG 55LW6500. After looking at the LG LW6500 series, the design and the TV frame didn't catch my buying attention.
Summary: PROS: Get 3500 series 3d glasses in the box and the QWERTY remote Stunning Picture once calibrated 3D on bluray movies are just WOW lol for everyday TV the default setting are great out of the box CONS: Only one... When you play a game on a system (xbox or ps3) you must turn it on game mode in the settings menu.
Summary: I received the Samsung un55d8000 two weeks ago. At first glance the picture is absolutely breathtaking. After watching it for a few weeks I really started to notice the blurring effect (especially on sports and quick motion). To give you an example... When watching football sometimes you could not even see the runners legs it will blur so much. I have also tried this on multiple sources (wdtv live, blue ray) and same thing.
Summary: I awaited the delivery of the Samsung UM-55D8000 after reading hundreds of reviews on Amazon, CNET, PC World. The set was delvered after much confusion by CEVA, the common shipper for the Third Party seller Electronics Expo on the Amazon Web site. The "White Glove" delivery was by a guy who could not even figure how to screw in the screws for the base. I had to show him.
Summary: I researched buying a new LED LCD for a while. I had an old Pioneer Plasma that still works but wanted an upgrade. Anyways, the Samsung D8000 is amazing, the picture quality is great.... sports, movies, blu ray...all amazing. The only issue i see right now is a little light leakage on the right side of the screen when the screen is totally black. If you are going to hang this on the wall i suggest getting a slim mount this this tv. Looks amazing on the wall.
Summary: Here is a review after one week. I will focus on the SmartTV internet-enable features, which were the main reason for purchasing Samsung. We do not have television service (cable, satellite, or antenna), but use the internet and our network computers for content. Network setup is relatively simple. We tried both wired and wireless and both worked well.
Excerpt: First off, I love this TV. The brightness is very good. I try to position my TV so that it isn't in direct sunlight but there is a large window in my living room. Despite this the images don’t get washed out and the contrast is very good. Viewing angles are excellent also. I have a rather long L-shaped sofa which means that people on opposite ends of the sofa have an off-center view.
Summary: This image on this TV, 3D or not, Is amazing. The Level of settings you have to choose from for image quality are fantastic. 3D gaming on it blows me away, IMAX 3D blurays like Tahiti the Big wave will leave you jaw dropped. The glasses that come with it are great, Pairing is a breeze, they take very little time to charge. All the features on this TV are fantastic, I am so happy I upgraded to this after doing alot of comparison with a Sony Bravia.
