Samsung UE55ES8000 smart TV
4 October 2014
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.
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
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.
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
Summary: The basics 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.
