Stunning Picture, lightning fast processor, nothing better
6 July 2014
Summary: You won't find a better TV than the UN55F8000. I purchased this TV for our living room and its fantastic. The picture is by far the best I've seen unless you get a 4k which looks almost fake to me. It has more features that you will ever use and the voice remote search is incredibly easy. It is extremely thin but sturdy. We use HD cable and the picture is so crisp. When Samsung updates the OS I will purchase the Evolution kit.
Summary: If you're reading this review, you're like me and waited a year to purchase this technology. Anyway...I've had the TV for about a month and I'll say that overall, it's a great TV. I was a little hesitant going with another Samsung TV since my last one was kind of bad, but so far this one has been great. The picture, for me, is the star on this TV. I played a Blu-Ray on my old TV and then this one, and the difference was astounding.
Summary: The picture quality is great on this TV (although I think this is a bit overrated in importance, as tons of TVs have pictures more than good enough). The crazy/stupid thing about Samsung is their Guide button is HORRIBLE. It starts at channel 1, but the high-def channels on Time Warner start at 1000. So you have to scroll through 1000 channels to get there. There is NO WAY to adjust this. I have been researching it for a month.
We are extremely happy with this TV and with Amazon service

Summary: We replaced a 6 year old Sony rear projection TV with this Samsung and we were amazed by the difference in picture quality. When my wife, who is normally not impressed by any home electronics, saw it she loved it. After owning it for a month we still comment on how great the picture is almost every time we turn it on.
Summary: Great picture,but came with some electronic glitch that needs fixed ,so far no luck getting that fixed. Turns itself off then on ,expecting a reliable unit for price Review update April 24 replaced main board glitch now taken care of great service,everything working great
