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. Unfortunately, in order to make such a thin TV, some trade-offs had to be made, and one of them must have been screen uniformity.
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
Excerpt: The Samsung UE60D8000 is a glamourpuss of a TV. This 60inch screen is barely 3cm deep and is wrapped in a bezel less than 5mm wide – it’s as frameless as you’re going to get at any screen-size, never mind at the monstrous end of the market.
Pros: Great looks, good smart functionality, detailed picture, bold colours
Cons: Not overly comfortable with motion, pricey for the size, sounds weedy
Excerpt: The Samsung UE60D8000 is the brand's most advanced LED screen yet. A 60-inch, 3D-capable and Smart TV-enabled flatscreen with drop-dead gorgeous looks, it sports a take-no-prisoners £4,300 price tag.
Pros: Gorgeous styling, Rich, vivid pictures, Smart portal is second-to-none
Cons: It's not cheap, Sound performance doesn't do the screen justice, Smart Hub can be overwhelming
