  • Summary: I purchased UN55B8000 on Feb 14th, 2010 after my old Samsumg DLP HDTV stopped working after 5 years. The life of these HDTVs is lot shorter than that of old CRT TVs. Anyway, the picture quality is good, it depends on so many factors, whether it is 1080 or 720, compressed or uncompressed, TV channel, etc. I saw the best quality of picture while watch news (ABC, CBS, NBC, etc) over the antenna which transmits at 1080i, uncompressed.

Great 55 Inch Screen

S. Bailey, Amazon
5 June 2010
  • Summary: If you are looking for a 55 inch screen, look no further than this model! This is exactly what the doctor ordered. Clear LCD, 240 speed and it is just beautiful on the wall. Hook this baby up with surround sound and you have a home theater than is affordable as well as beautiful to look at. I had mine installed by a professional; no wires visible. It looks like a picture on the wall over my fireplace.

Big and Beautiful

Michael Bilodeau "Homader", Amazon

  • Summary: Overall, I am really happy with the UN55B8000. It has great picture quality in colors and contrast and we're having fun with the internet feature. The TV is surprisingly thin, and came with a substantial stand (which we're not using). There are, however, a few things that keep me from giving it 5 stars. Spotlight Effect - This is very obvious to me whenever the screen is dark or black. I can see the beams of the LED shining in from the sides.

Awesome TV - Get it without the DLNA / Internet if possible

Raj, Amazon
2 May 2010
  • Summary: The good: 1. Amazing picture quality 2. Bright color great contrast...can't even tell it's on 3. Excellent remote 4. Lots of I/O ports to connect stuff 5. Very thin...looks like a picture frame on the wall (mounted it myself with Samsung slim mount) The not so good: 1. The included DLNA software is pretty basic and not worth it. Recommend using PlayOn or something compatible though I'm not sure what all is compatible. I use it with PlayOn 2.

Update 11/2011 - Stunning picture most of the time.

Scott F., Amazon
30 March 2010
  • Summary: November, 2011 update: I lowered my rating from 4 stars to 2 stars because my set has developed a dark smudgy area on the left half of the screen. For a while I noticed these blemishes while watching the news and I thought the screen or news anchors were dirty. After cleaning it properly, it did not resolve the problem. I found that when I display a dark grey solid background (via a PC) I can see the distortion in its entirety. ** This is NOT the clouding issue.

Great, but not awesome

M. Lujan, Amazon
16 March 2010
  • Summary: Great picture, nice brights, nice look, and nice gaming. Everything about this TV is awesome except for two things. The 240Hz doesnt really seem like 240Hz at all, it just seems like the 120Hz. I dont notice any difference. Also, when watching a dark movie, the LED lights on the side are visible through the screen like a mist, especially seen around charcoal areas of the screen.
