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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Review by Daniel regarding the Cons of 65" Series 8000 LED- "Soap Opera effect"

Summary: I would like to comment on Daniel's thorough review of the 65" series 8000. I own the Series 8000 60" LED and you can solve the "Soap Opera effect when watching BD movies. Pull up the menu and turn off the "Auto Motion Plus".
Summary: Samsung advertizes that their built in SmartHub allows you to connect to your favorite movies from apps such Netflix & Blockbuster and that you can access other video content from DLNA-enabled devices (e.g., your computer) and from any connected USB device. This is all true.
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.
