I remember the first TV Samsung shipped to me for review; it was a 46″ LCD that sat in my parents living room. I thought that was a big TV but as years have passed the TVs started getting bigger. First it was a 52, then a 55 and now we're at 60″! It...

Any minor quirks associated with Samsung's ultra-rich Smart TV interface should be considered a by-product of aggressive efforts at improving the Smart TV experience. Future iterations will likely be even more refined, and that's exciting to think...

We really like the Samsung: it's a cutting-edge set with improved smart features, a friendlier user experience, and a definite step up in both sound and picture performance. But it's not flawless: the motion and voice controls are far from perfect,...

The UE55F8000 hits the ground running with its design, which combines an on-trend slender bezel with a dark, glassy finish and built-in camera. However, other designs in this roundup are spectacular too, so the UE55F8000's styling alone won't be enough...

The Samsung F8000 certainly has more bells and whistles than any other TV on the market, from S-Recommendation to voice and motion control. The picture quality, however, is disappointing. We expected more out of a TV like this. Just like the F7000, in...

So then, the F8000 is a very good TV. We would've like to see a bit more thought gone into its design, to ease cable management. It also takes a bit of setting up to get a really good picture, with Samsung still insisting - as most manufacturers do - in...

The UE55F8000 is the best LED TV I've seen so far this year. It has strong picture and audio quality and a truly excellent smart TV system, making it a well-rounded package. Nevertheless, it's hugely expensive and if you mostly use your TV to watch...

It's been a pretty good year for LED TVs, so far, and it was led out in fine style by the 55-inch model of the TV we have here now. Steve Withers was particularly impressed by the all-round qualities of the 55F8000 and we're hoping for more of the same...

The F8000 currently represents the pinnacle of Samsung's Smart 3D TV range. The 46-inch Samsung UE46F8000ST featured here is joined by the 40-inch UE40F8000ST, 55-inch UE55F8000ST, 65-inch UE65F8000ST and 75-inch UE75F8000ST. Does it have what it takes...

Samsung claims it has created the TV that finally understands its viewer. If we take that statement literally, the new F8000 falls a bit short. That's because the voice recognition isn't available in all languages yet, and the personal preferences of S...

There's no doubt that Samsung's big F8000 is a formidable example of LED TV art. Both in terms of aesthetic design and feature functionality, it's a front runner, with images that are blisteringly sharp and vibrant. While the value of voice...
