Samsung UA55ES8000 Review
5 June 2013
Summary: The Samsung UA55ES8000 is available in India at an MRP of Rs. 2,73,000. This television is a product that is meant for a niche audience and the price is the only justification for this fact. The model possesses cutting edge features that very few televisions in the market come equipped with nowadays such as motion and voice control.
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. But it’s also one brainy goggle box, with Samsung’s smart TV app store and services - whatever you’re into you’ll be spoiled for choice.
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. If you want the best, you’ll have to pay for it, but Samsung’s ES8000 series is certainly one of the best LED televisions we’ve ever seen. It should delight viewers for years to come.
Pros: Brilliant, bright picture, Excellent black levels, Superb color accuracy, Gorgeous design, Upgradable hardware
Cons: Some light bleed from edges, Poor off-axis performance, Merciless with low-quality sources
Excerpt: This is Samsung's latest Smart TV, the UN55ES8000F. A, B, C, D, and E were killed in a tragic skydiving accident... just kidding! This is a rather large upgrade in terms of both the hardware and software. The last couple iterations of Samsung Smart TVs were impressive, but they were tweaks on what was already a pretty advanced media system. This TV... this one is a pretty big leap forward.
Conclusion: Samsung is consistently advancing the picture quality and pushing the envelope of smart TV functionality with each new generation of its TVs. The UN55ES8000F is one of the highest performance 2D and 3D LED TVs available in stores today and with a price of $2,799 it should be attainable to all who appreciate a good quality picture. Its smart TV functionality, while not something I would take advantage of very often, will surely be embraced by some users and show the...
Conclusion: Make no bones about it – the UE55ES8000 is a magnificent TV. There aren’t many sets that can match its incredible feature list and level of innovation. Voice and gesture control, touch-pad remote and face recognition make it feel like a TV from the future, while the generous online content and slick streaming functionality puts a wealth of entertainment at your disposal beyond TV and Blu-ray.
Pros: Features and innovative control systems, Superlative pictures, Stunning design
Cons: Expensive, Inaccurate gesture control, Noisy DVD playback
