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: 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.
Summary: bot this on black friday. Great price. No tax or deliv fee. Was a little worried after reading reviews on avs forum about uniformity issues. Yes indeed there is some subtle issues atleast on my set when there is a grey screen that comes up. Make sure you use dead pixel buddy program to test for dead pixels and color uniformity on the screen. So far so good. Almost cancelled the order. THe delivery with ceva was ok, not great.
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.
Summary: We bought this TV few months back. I have a new PS3 and my computer connected to this Smart TV. The setup was simple and the quality of picture/sound is great. The 3D glasses paired and worked well. Before buying, I was not very impressed by 'no bezel' design. But enjoyed it a lot after buying the TV. Pros: 1. Picture and Sound quality, 3D picture 2. No bezel design 3. Internet (wifi) connectivity and Smart TV features 4. Wii and PS3 games works great on the TV 5.
Summary: The TV is great. I love the brightness and slim look. It could easily be hand as a picture or paint. The 3D feature is also great. I though that having to recharge the 3d Glasses every time we want to watch a 3d Movie will be an inconvenient..but no. The glasses recharge basically on 5 mins, and they are ready to go and last for probably 2-3 movies. I haven't really test their battery to the limit. One thing I don't like on the TV is the smart connection to the receiver.
Summary: I am fairly well satisfied with my Samsung purchase. Just a couple of things might make this TV a little better. The smart hub is a little slow coming up, and it could use some sort of mouse for navigating, the navigation is quite slow and seems almost clunky using the included remote. The other improvement I could use is for the speakers to somehow be directed towards the front rather than the rear. Other than that this was a great buy.
Summary: I had watched the Samsung TVs since the 'B' models and finally saved up the ca$h to get the 55" 'D8000' this year. Well worth the wait! The thin border, great high-contrast picture, and configuration options are very impressive. The 3D features are very cool - not a must have for me - but still pretty neat, especially converting live TV (like football games) to 3D on the fly; it works best with full HD content in 1080i.
Summary: The TV probably has the uniformity defect everyone mentions. For the most part I don't find it that bad especially with low back light levels. I suspect they made compromises in getting the edge so small (which is very nice) and using edge LED. Overall the picture quality is far better than my previous rear projection HDTV. Uniformity is worse than my cheaper standard back lite Samsung which has no issue at all. Extensive features are nice as well.
