Excerpt: As the king of Samsung's 1080p LED HDTVs, the F8000 series flourishes a crown encrusted with resplendent jewels like a quad core processor, voice and motion controls, and a Smart Hub overflowing with apps, social media, and smart recommendations.
Conclusion: Any minor quirks associated with Samsung’s ultra-rich Smart TV interface should be considered a by-product of aggressive efforts at improving the Smart TV experience. Future iterations will likely be even more refined, and that’s exciting to think about.
Pros: Excellent Black levels for an LED TV, Superior brightness and color, Most beautifully designed TV of the year, Smooth fast-motion video resolution, Super-fast user interface
Cons: Poor off-axis performance, Wide TV stand may limit placement flexibility, Remote takes getting used to
Excerpt: Samsung’s UE55F8000 is more than just a TV – it’s a versatile home entertainment hub that gives you access to a wide range of media, be it your own or from on-demand services. Controlling the TV is aided by gesture control thanks to the integrated camera, voice recognition via the touchpad remote,...
Conclusion: The Samsung UNF8000 series of LED backlit HDTVs offer solid performance and loads of features in a beautiful streamlined cabinet, but its black levels are mediocre and its ports are awkwardly placed.
Excerpt: The F8000 series succeeds last year's ES8000 models, and ranges in size from 40 inches all the way up to 75 inches. The F8000 has an entirely new base, but the most important improvements are less visible.
Conclusion: There’s no doubt that Samsung’s big F8000 is a formidable example of LED TV art. Both in terms of aesthetic design and feature functionality, it’s a front runner, with images that are blisteringly sharp and vibrant.
Pros: Spectacular in every sense, the design is a minimalist triumph, user interface is polished
Cons: Picture presets don’t get the best out of the TV, motion handling remains an Achilles heel in an artefact sock, gesture control is still little more than a novelty
