Summary: When I purchased this TV last year it took me at least a month to get used to look, feel and motion of the picture. This is of course after I used the recommended settings from AVS for picture quality. One year later I am still impressed with how sharp and solid this tv has performed. This is my second Samsung tv and my first 3d tv with Smart TV apps.
Pros: Sharp picture quality, great appsa nd features with Samsung Smart TV service
Cons: Blacks are not the best out there, learning curve
Amazing. Great investment, hope it holds me over until the OLED tvs are released.

Summary: I am thoroughly impressed with the product. Outside of the fact that there is no amazon prime for this device, it works well. I had trouble in the beginning and had to call amazon customer service for a new one. There was a dead pixel spot on my screen that didn't show any picture. I called amazon about the flaw and they gave me a new tv in exchange for the old one. Amazon's customer service is amazing and I have no real complaints about the tv or amazon.
Summary: This is a great TV and for the price, you can't get better. I went to best buy to see if they would price match this TV and they said they don't price match with amazon, so I pointed out that it was being sold by Paul's TV, so they checked it out on-line. Turns out Paul's TV sells for a different price on amazon than their sale price on-line at their web-site so I ordered from Amazon. The TV arrived within 2 days. Can't ask for better delivery service than that.
Summary: When my Darling Bride's eyesight began to weaken, she complained that our 36" tube TV wasn't getting it for her eyes anymore. So we started saving up and researching new HDTVs. Amazon's White Glove Delivery was included in the price and a pleasant surprise! The deliverers brought the TV into the house, unboxed it, assembled it, plugged it in, turned it on and tested it out. They even offered to haul away the box and packing materials!
Summary: This is a beautiful TV, the super thin bezel design is the best on the market and has a definite luxurious look and feel. The body is remarkably light and easy to set up. After spending a few hours tweaking, I am very happy with the picture quality. That said, this is a TV that does require a little fine tuning to optimize performance (but most if not all TVs are like this nowadays).
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: 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 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: 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.
