Amazon App not available but a great TV

Summary: I've had this TV since December 2011 and I love it except for one thing. Out of all the TVs that Samsung offers this one doesn't allow you to download the Amazon App, which is crazy since this is a Smart Hub TV. Samsung has told me again that they are working with Amazon to get this app, but I've been asking Samsung since January 2013 and it's now July 2013and still the same response, we're working with Amazon.
Summary: The television has an excellent picture. The all share works great for sharing media from a phone or laptop over wifi. I am surprised they don't have Amazon Prime video streaming app available on this model. As I understand they have it on prior models, and future models, but not this model. It would be nice if Samsung would add the Amazon Prime streaming app to this model.
Summary: I have owned this unit for about 4 months now, and it is a superb 3D HDTV. It has a super sharp, almost edgeless display that would please any technophile, and plenty of settings and content apps. It was also lightweight enough for me to wall mount it solo -- be sure to hold it vertical (as it would be on the wall) to prevent the TV from sagging (i.e. possibly damaging) if lifted horizontal.
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: Great picture. It comes with some really cool slide show scenes to of the out doors, wild life, exotic art, some games, etc. It crashes at times and does not respond. It requires pairing from time to time. Also, I am unable to type using the QWERTY remote. I found a shortcut though which was helpful. I am very happy with the TV. My neighbor and I bought the same TV and both are amazed with the TV picture quality, sound and 3d depth.
Summary: My neighbor and I bought the same TV and both are amazed with the TV picture quality, sound and 3d depth. However, I am not too keen with the QWERTY remote. The remote is too finicky. It crashes at times and does not respond. It requires pairing from time to time. Also, I am unable to type using the QWERTY remote. I found a shortcut though (thanks to samsung remote free app on Iphone.) :-) I am very happy with the TV.
Summary: Well, it came down to the new Sony XBR and Samsung. I actually liked the Sony a little better (picture quality) but saved $600 by going with my close second choice. I am glad I did. I was a little concerned about making the purchase online. After shopping the local stores and looking for a price match, I decided to trust Amazon. Again, I am glad I did. The tv is great. The picture almost looks 3D without the actual 3D being enabled. Picture quality is excellent.
Summary: I purchased this TV for my father. I replaced a 46 inch Sharp Aquos. It is a very nice upgrade; however, I found that I cannot control external speakers with the TV remote volume control like I could on the Sharp. My father is hard of hearing and has speakers near him for better sound. Nothing I did seemed to work, so I finally got online and started a support chat. Here is the text from that chat: Please wait for a Samsung Agent to respond.
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.
