Samsung UE55ES8000 smart TV

Channel5
2 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Say hello to Samsung’s bad boy smart TV. This epic 55-incher has all the works, of course: 3D support, LED backlighting for stunning contrast, a super slim silver frame you’ll barely be able to make out from your perch on the sofa.

Samsung UE55ES8000 review

9 October 2012
  • Conclusion: With its avant-garde feature set and red carpet looks, it’s impossible not to be wowed by the UE55ES8000. In truth the pseudo-Kinect control options are a little gimmicky, and contribute significantly to the set’s high ticket price.
  • Pros: Dual-core picture quality, Great multimedia file support
  • Cons: Voice/gesture feels faddy, Needs tweaking for best pics, Pricey

Samsung UN55ES8000 Review

Digitaltrends

  • Conclusion: Even though Samsung’s Smart Interaction is ahead of its time – and, frankly, might never catch on – there is plenty here in the way of performance and features to qualify this high-end television’s equally premium price.

PC Magazine
22 May 2012
  • Conclusion: With its voice- and motion-controlled interface, Samsung's ES8000F series does a lot to advance HDTV design, but some of the new features aren't quite ready for prime time.
  • Pros: Ambitious user interface. Beautiful design. Excellent white and black levels. Accurate color. Comes with 3D glasses.
  • Cons: Voice, motion, and touchpad controls are unreliable. Screen shows significant light bloom on the edges. Only three HDMI ports.

Samsung Series 8 ES8000 55-inch edge LED LCD TV

Pocket Lint
10 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Gimmicks such as the UE55ES8000’s gesture control are best ignored, as at the core of this TV there’s some quality stuff. Take Samsung’s Smart Hub, for example. We think it’s up there with the best smart TV interfaces and made catch-up TV via iPlayer or other apps a breeze.
  • Pros: Sleek design with thin bezel, good smart interface, light-up controller, generally good picture quality in both 2D and 3D forms, great Smart Hub interface, well-rounded sound
  • Cons: Picture lacks uniformity, flimsy 3D glasses, picture presets are too harsh, does a TV really need gesture control? no SD card slot, no custom EQ settings
