Summary: The picture and features are amazing .. not so much the smart hub though. I use a pc connected and its great. The smart hub has issues because at times you will have no access to it, if samsung servers are down. (how ridiculous is that? so if someone every shuttered the hub would probably be useless). Also the netflix app is really horrible for the smart hub and the other apps are mostly uselss. Although i did get a kick out of using skype on it.
Summary: The picture on this TV is absolutely amazing. I purchased it to replace a 40" Sony Bravia XBR and it is like night and day. The color saturation is great and the picture quality is impressive. I was not expecting much of a difference as they are both at 1080P, but it really is substantially improved.
Pros: Great picture, lightweight, and the edge to edge lighting really really ensures there is not wasted space.
Cons: The voice commands and gestures are a little gimicky. It was midly entertaining at first but at the end of the day the remote is still way faster.
Summary: Great Picture after some tweeking 3d saw avengers very nice. online services are good when smart hub is online would have given it 5 stars but screen pop ups that your not connected to smart hub when samsungs servers are down with a connection error is annoying easy fix disconect the internet.
Pros: Online apps when they work. picture quality camera motion and voice controls very nice 3d is awsome.
Cons: No message that servers are down from smart hub you basically need to go to their facebook page and see other people complaining.
Summary: Delivery without extra charge was appreciated. The TV arrived in the original Samsung packaging and was in excellent condition. The TV was competitively priced although I never thought the day would come when I would spend well over a grand for a TV. Out of the box set-up was straightforward - I could do it myself with a little help from Verizon's customer service to activate their HD box. The visual appearance of the set and its stand is great.
Summary: Im very satisfied with the tv, It has great picture quality and has very useful features that although not need are still very cool to have. The motion control can sometimes recognize my hand when im not gesturing at the tv which can get annoying.
Summary: Had the 55" ES8000 for a couple of weeks now and have to tell you it's a great TV. Many cool features beside picture, such as wifi, apps and just plane good looks. About the only negative would be trying to set up the smart remote. The regular remote works fine but the fancy one might need a Phd in remote science Otherwise my family loves it.
Summary: I do love this tv. It's picture quility is excellent. The close to framless screen is awsome. This tv has so many features some of which I have not used yet. The only flaw is the tv turns on on its own, not often,twice in two months. Hopefully samsung will come up with a solution for this. I would recommend this tv to everyone. Its a beauty and works like a charm.
Summary: The tv is beautiful and the image from Direct or Dish is stunning, however, my Apple tv's videos are terrible. They look grainy, cloudy, and distorted. I have found other users with the same issue on Apple forums. My old Sony LCD had no issues. I hope Samsung finds a fix for this very soon. I feel quite dissapointed after spending so much money for a tv.
