Great for HD Sports and Gaming

  • Summary: I bought this TV last summer and figured now would be a good time to provide some input. I am a techie, but i use the default settings on the TV and they have been fine for me. But after using this TV for 6 months it was time to share my experiences. Picture Quality This is strongest when I am watching live sports and video gaming. I don't have cable and use the free TV around me. Its actually clearer than HD from cable companies.

Great LED TV from Samsung

  • 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.

Great TV, SmartTV internet needs work

Christopher Levell, Amazon

  • 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.

Samsung UN55D8000 55inch TV review

No Whining, Amazon
29 August 2011
  • Summary: First off, let me say this TV is beautiful and looks amazing hanging on the wall in the living room. I had read just about every review out there on this Samsung prior to purchasing it. I was very concerned about the quality issues that many of the reviews spoke about. When the TV was delivered, we were overwhelmed by the picture quality. It makes HDTV look almost "too real".

Great HDTV

  • Summary: I'll keep this short as I've only had this TV for a little over a week. Setup was easy. Some people heard from Samsung that you need to be eight inches from the TV when pairing the remote; my wife did so, and there were no issues. Once the remote is paired, it doesn't need to be done again. Initially, there were some issues with intermittent wireless connectivity to the Internet. I discovered that the problem was actually with my older 802.11g router (NETGEAR WPN824v2).

Blu-ray player not needed

  • Summary: Excellent TV. The picture is vivid and amazing. Play a movie such as Tangled on it and your family/friends will say "Wow... I gotta get me one of these!" Hell it looks great without even being turned on. However, the glossy screen reflects the light from the windows and makes viewing dark scenes unpleasant unless I close the shades. 3D is so so.

Excellent TV but not as smart as it should be

HM, Amazon
11 December 2012
  • Summary: Almost perfect picture and good sound. My main complaints are around the "smart" claim. If I want to watch a film stored on my NAS drive, the TV takes about 10 minutes from switch on before it will recognise the NAS drive. I have complained to Samsung support who said they would put it to their software people to see if a cure can be included in a future firmware upgrade. The included apps are not very inspiring and the internet browser is awfull.

  • Summary: What can i say! i brought this tv about 3 days ago now and i am stunned by its shear quality. I mainly use the tv as a gaming monitor and with the old samsung plasma 3d tv i had i always got really bad image burn. So first thing i did was test this baby out. left computer on for about 8 hours and then loaded a film with the black bars top and bottom. there was nothing there at all. no windows bar ect! brilliant!

Cool, Beautiful but not so Smart

Geek, Amazon
30 December 2011
  • Summary: Cool, Beautiful, but not so Smart. The new Smart 8000 55" TV is beautiful, with a very slim chrome trim. It 's also a cool high quality TV with awesome video and sound quality. It's easy to set up and fairly straightforward out of the box. It's quite light and easy to handle but don't waste your time with the Samsung cable wall mount.. It doesn't work if you have a bunch of cables connected and it too easy to knock crooked. The hype about the TV is overblown.

User Review

  • Summary: I was hoping to buy a Panasonic Viera but couldn't find a vendor who had both the television set and the 3D glasses. I then went to an independant shop who had the Viera but also had this in stock and said it was "better". I went for the Samsung 8 instead, and paid a premium for it. One of the main draws is that it is a 55" set but only marginally larger than my previous 50" set (by 2cm in width). In my small house that works really well with space being limited.
  • Pros: 2d picture quality, set design, 55" tv the size of a 50", firmware updates
  • Cons: 3D can exhibit cross talk
