Summary: At the end of the analysis we can conclude that the bottom line is that the Samsung UN60D8000 delivers good features and an excellent design, but things like poor screen uniformity might turn people off from buying it.
Summary: It looks a million dollars, and almost costs as much too, but the Samsung UE60D8000 produces extremely punchy pictures and has a stunning line-up of features. It's marred slightly by inconsistent backlighting and some 3D crosstalk.
Pros: Bright, vibrant images; Good sound quality; Gorgeous design; Great Internet features.
Cons: Crosstalk in 3D images; Inconsistent backlight.
Conclusion: There’s nothing else quite like the UN60D8000 TV and its barely visible bezel. The TV makes a big visual statement whether it is turned on or not, and when it is turned on, the sense of depth you get when watching is a special kind of entertainment unto itself.
Pros: Stunning slim bezel and profile, Two pairs of active 3D glasses included, Comprehensive picture adjustment options, Capable of extreme brightness, Excellent color when properly calibrated, QWERTY Bluetooth remote
Cons: Brightness uniformity problems, Highly reflective glass panel, Picture settings can’t be copied to other inputs
Summary: Without question, the UE60D8000 is a fine TV. Apart from a few backlighting issues its 2D and 3D visuals are up there with the best of them, and in Samsung’s ever more powerful Smart TV app hub, it’s got one of the best web-connected feature sets to boot too.
