Samsung Series 8 (UA55ES8000RLXL) Smart TV Review
2 August 2012
Summary: The Samsung Series 8 TVs are possibly some of the smartest HDTVs in the business. Some really neat add-ons here - gesture control, face recognition, voice navigation and even a touchpad remote. But most importantly, it is the delightful performance that makes us recommend this TV to anyone who has a budget as big as Rs. 2,67,000.
Pros: Brilliant HD content handling, Tested contrast ratio among the highest in TVs, Edge to edge design is classy, Solid table stand, with unique design, Gesture & voice controls are fun add-ons, Touchpad remote very useful for browsing
Cons: Don't see a regular use of voice & gesture control, Display is very reflective, SD content will be disrespectful to the TV!
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: 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.
Samsung’s top LED includes voice and gesture control - is this the best TV for 2012?

Summary: Samsung's best 2012 LED TV is a strong performer for picture quality and design, and it has some interesting technical advancements in the form of voice and motion recognition. On its own, the Series 8 TV is a high quality device. Picture quality isn't vastly improved since the 2011 Series 8 model, and the voice and motion features can feel both superfluous and slow. Nevertheless, it's one of the best-looking TVs we've seen and the feature-set is comprehensive.
Pros: Excellent picture quality in HD and SD, Useful video sharing and apps, Striking design
Cons: Voice and motion features aren't perfect, Interface feels slightly slow, No huge advances in picture quality since 2011
