Samsung UN55D8000 – The Best TV I Ever Bought

  1. 1. Samsung UN55D8000 – The Best TV I Ever Bought5.0 out of 5 stars BEST TV Ive ever bought, September 3, 2012By MeDavid16I usually do not write reviews, but I saw some poor reviews on the Samsung UN55D8000 and feltthere needs to be some balance.I for one have had a GREAT experience with ALL Samsung TVs, and the Samsung UN55D8000 is noexception. Ive been using this puppy for about a year now and is still spot on and never fails toimpress my friends.I bought the Samsung UN55D8000 when it first came out; carefully examined packaging and pixels.Maybe my eyes deceive me, but I scanned a few times with some friends and we all couldnt find adead pixel (which is very unlikely). Set up took minutes.Picture quality, is very difficult to define and clearly some of the reviews out there are verysubjective. "Oh its too dark, its too bright, too much color" But in another review, its interpreted as"Deep beautiful blacks, crisp sharp illumination, dynamic popping refined colors." Having that said,there are some things that are consistently important, and I can say this model hits it all. Faithful Page 1 of 4
  2. 2. reproduction of geometry and colors. I personally like the 240hz, although if youve never seen it, itmay take some time to adjust to and its not for everyone. Adjustment options are plentiful, and willplease most critics, be it subjective as it may. Images are very uniform edge to edge, theres no"bright or dark" corners/borders.If you play video games, make sure you turn on "Game Mode", it will prevent "lag" issues.Breathtaking gaming once you get it set up.3D, the best of all the models, including some of Samsungs own, when I tried some of them atvarious retailers F??s and B??? B??s. And Im really bothered by people who say "oh its dark, its toodark." Come on, thats the limit of the technology. You cant point at wheels of a car and say the tiresare too round. Active shutter is "SHUTTING" shades to make images in 3D. Why dont we just call it"rich beautiful deepening of the black" also? And yes, you can make it bright to compensate, butyoud also have to adjust the contrast, so its possible to adapt but Im sure people will complain "Ihave to do that everytime for 3D?" If it bothers you, dont buy it, Active Shutter 3D is not for you, itsnot a good "con."Tested all the ports, well placed and bountiful.Bezel is almost a mirage, AWESOME.However, nothing is perfect in life, here are some issues that I think are REAL cons:The Allshare / SmartTV are nice features, but please SPEED UP the apps. They are upsettingly slow.Menu speed overall can be improved as well. Some of the features are hard to get to. Game Mode,to be honest, should be a very important feature and not be so deep in the menu.Internet speed too slow. Hardwired into my router, my 3g phone still run circles around it loadingwebsites etc.The remote controller eats batteries a little TOO fast (had to buy rechargeable batteries)*FIXED* Annoying popup screen for firmware update (Thank you for stopping that)Would be nice to come with more 3d glasses.I think these are more nitpicks, but overall, great investment.

I did a lot of research online and decided it was either a Sony or a Samsung basedoff recommendations from friends and online. I went to my local electronics store to seesome of the TVs in action. While there I saw last year’s model of this TV. While very nice Ihave an all black metal stand for my tv, so I though the thick silver bezel would stand out. Italked to an associate and they told me about the new 2011 model. Once I saw it I knew itwas the TV I wanted. I did some shopping around and found Amazon had the best priceoverall. I was a bit skeptical about making such a large purchase and ordering online.I have heard some complaints about the companies used to ship the TVs. I have to say I had agood experience. The delivery was made in the first hour of my delivery appointmentwindow. The box of the tv was a little damaged in the bottom corner but nothing to worryabout. My TV was brought inside and I inspected it and wow is this thing a work of art. Eventhe delivery guys were impressed; they hadnt seen the new model yet. The TV was a littlecold from being stored in the warehouse and on the truck so I assembled everything andhooked up all my extras (home theatre, Xbox 360, PS3, cable box etc) but i didnt plug the Page 3 of 4
  4. 4. power in for about 2 hours to let the Samsung UN55D8000 warm up and avoid damage to it.Once I turned the Samsung UN55D8000 on, I was greeted with an easy and simple to followsetup of the TV and wireless network.I have read one poor review of this TV stating the led backlight was visible from the edgesand I have to disagree. I cannot see the backlight source at all. This is by far the best lookingTV on the market. I do however wish it had full array led backlighting rather than thedynamic edge.My only complaint (if you can even call it that) is the remote. It is a bit chunky because of thefull qwerty on the back and I haven’t been able to get the qwerty side to sync with my TV yetit keeps saying failure.. I would have liked to see the touch screen remote that was includedwith the 9000 series before. However on the grand scale this is minor. I have only had thisTV for a short time but I would highly recommend this Samsung UN55D8000 TV if it is inyour budget.With beautiful picture, 3D, plenty of HDMI slots, USB, WIFI and the Samsung SmartTV thisis a great option for someone in the market for a high end LED-LCD.5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME TV!!!!!!, August 22, 2011By MrMetrx (Los Angeles, CA)WOW. This is by far the best TV yet. Very crisp HD picture. I was amazed on how light theSamsung UN55D8000 is for a 55" LCD. I also have a year old Samsung 55" LED/LCD that Ihave been very happy with. Although there seems to be those who hate Samsung, I have yetto be disappointed with both TVs. I wasnt a big fan of 3D but it seems that most new TVsincluded 3D now. I have to say I was very impressed with the 3D. Watching sports makesyou feel like you are there in the stands. PLEASE NOTE.... I did start to get a headache afterwatching in 3D for about 1 hour.And finally.....You can’t beat the price...
