Summary: I tried one 55 inch and two 60 inches and yes the image is unbelievable till you get into the dark seen and then bleeding that is unreal for a top of the line tv.I returned them all and went back to the sony tv (xbr) and never regretted one moment.
Poor picture uniformity with dark image - grey splotch in center. Dark vertical bands appear with light monochrome background.

Summary: Most of the time picture is very good. However, when image is dark (night scene) there is a grey splotch across the center third of the screen. Blacks in that area are too light. Have tried unsuccessfully to adjust image to compensate. Also, when image has a monochrome light background, vertical bands of a darker shade appear across the screen. This is especially bad when the image is panning. In addition, occasionally the image is jerky.
Summary: I purchased this Samsung UN65ES8000 TV from Amazon.com on 12/12/2012. Perhaps it is the size (65 inch) of the panel that causes my TV to have gray and white vertical bands when watching golf course field, blue sky, light blue water features, and all other light green, light blue and white scenes. It is not obvious when first detected. However, the gray vertical bands make golf course grass field looks very dirty.
Picture quality is great but features are useless! (Samsung ES8000 65 inch)

Summary: I brought mine at BestBuy since on Amazon.com has it at the same price and bestbuy had the free haul away of the old TV. First off, it had turned off twice on me while I'm watching TV and it's been about a 3 weeks since I have gotten it. The picture quality is great but not excellent. You'll still experience the digital blur when watching fast action movies or the games (football, and NASCar races, etc), even with the 240 refresh rate and Samsung so call 960 Clear Motion...
Summary: I've had two 65" ES8000s, and both of them demonstrated the same problems. While color, brightness and contrast are very good, Samsung has a defective backlight design. Both of my sets demonstrated flashlighting/clouding (a splotchy looking screen on black or dark scenes) and banding (alternating strips of light and dark backlighting, particularly visible in panning scenes across a uniform backdrop).
Summary: Tv looks great. 3D is awesome. Brightness is terrific. I love everything about this tv except: there is a blob shaped bright spot right in the center of the screen. At night, I can see the bright area through the picture. During the day it's quite unnoticeable. I called Samsung and they sent someone to check it out. The people from Allen's TV,Columbus GA said that tros is normal in Movie mode. Unfortunately, I can see it in every mode.
So far not as advertised - note the words "so far"

Summary: I purchased this TV because I had a 4 year old Samsung 8000 and the picture on every channel was SUPERB plus it was time for a BIG screen. Out of the box the blacks were not black and the picture on many channels was "clear but grainy". The installers were great but were not able to make the picture acceptable to me. A second geek squad techie came and moved the picture from "dynamic" to "standard" improving it somewhat. However, skin tone varies from channel to channel.
Conclusion: Belle télé mais un effet de bandes verticale terriblement géant dès que l'image effectue un traveling horizontal. J'ai déjà fait changer la télé par le support mais rien n'y fait... Soit il s'agit de la loi des séries soit c'est un problème de design. Bref je suis terriblement déçu.
Conclusion: Superbe écran, il est beau et lumineux, mais hélas un clouding insupportable et intolérable pour un téléviseur de ce prix... Clouding = taches blanchatre durant une séquence d'image sombre. [Complément du 29/08/2012] : points positifs : télé très lumineuse, esthétiquement bien réussie, fonctions de commande vocale pratiques.
