The UE65H8000 is an impressive all-rounder, but it's just too big for its boots. To design-in a curve and then use a Full HD panel on a huge high-end TV like the UE65H8000 just seems odd. It's definitely not going to be on 2015's flagship curved or flat...

A very solid TV—but you're paying for the curve If reviewing multiple curved TVs has taught me anything, it's that the design flourish adds notably to the price you pay. The UN55H8000 is quite expensive at an MSRP of $2,899—even the current sale...

We've already reviewed the 55-inch version of Samsung's flagship Full HD TV for 2014. The UE55H8000 was an excellent example of a modern LCD TV with LED edge-lighting and a Full HD panel. The image accuracy was impressive, the processing superb and the...

The stand is made up of two semi circles the front larger one is 88cm wide at the two edges. The rear semi circle is 55cm at the edges and they face away from each other. So unless you are wall mounting the unit you need an 88cm wide table with at least...

The Samsung UE48H8000 is priced at around £1300, so you pay a premium for the curved design. But you get a lot of TV for that money - and not just because it's curved. The quality of the picture is the thing that really stands out, which makes...

With the 55H8000, Samsung improves on the already formidable picture quality of last year's top of the line model. I also believe that by reimagining their Smart Hub, they have made all the apps and features more accessible.I'm still not convinced that...

A couple of years ago a Full HD 65in set costing just over £3000 would have been seen as a bargain. Today, we think it needs to have 4K TV to fully justify the price.The Samsung UE65H8000 also has a curved screen of course, but while it's a great talking...

Curved 4K and OLED TVs are getting all of the attention this year. What about 1080p LED TVs? Samsung decided to cater to those not ready for 4K with the 55H8000 LED TV. It's a curved screen with the best picutre quality features for a 1080p display in Samsung's 2014...

Supremely stylish and bursting with features, the UE55H8000 produces excellent pictures in brighter rooms, but it's very pricey for a Full HD...

We're less convinced by the curve at this size, but there's no mistaking that the UE55H8000 is an outstanding TV that delivers in every...

Curved TVs are great, yes I said it and you really have to check one out to really see and understand its benefits. A few months ago, we here at Booredatwork.com got our hands on the Samsung Curved HU9000 ; the company's first Curved 4K display—gorgeous...

Samsung's continue to offer one of the fastest and most feature-rich Smart TV platforms. LG wants to challenge them with a new webOS based platform and we will see how that plays out. But being the best in a market of extremely poorly executed Smart TV...

The UE55H8000 is a stunning performer that shows there's plenty of life in HD yet. It's also flexible with its control options, and accompanies its stellar pictures with startlingly robust sonics. It's a couple of hundred pounds dearer than I'd ideally...

There were times when we looked at the lush, beautiful picture put out by the Samsung UE55H8000, and thought that this TV deserved a “Highly Recommended” rating. But ultimately it's let down by some backlight inconsistency, and priced too close to the...

A Smart TV H8000 da Samsung centraliza seu marketing em torno da tela curvada. Apesar disso, não vimos muitas diferenças em termos de melhorias da imagem, levando-nos a crer que se trata mais de um fator estético. A qualidade das imagens é bem...

UE55H800, gerçekten çok pahalı bir televizyon. Bu sene UHD TV'ler daha da ucuzlarsa, bazıları UE55H8000 ile yakın fiyata gelebilir. Ayrıca, Sony'nin yeni amiral gemisi 55 inç'lik HD TV olan 55W955B'de 5.500 lira.Yine de, UE55H800'in ilginç özelliklerle...

Après un excellent mais impayable modèle courbé OLED, le Samsung UE55H8000 inaugure la mode des écrans courbés à la sauce LED. Si l'effet Waouh est toujours là, on se demande si le concept va vraiment accrocher parce qu'à l'essai, on a quelques doutes...

International Review By Les Numériques on 60

Le leader coréen tente de briser les codes avec ce nouveau fer-de-lance Full HD aux lignes courbées. Le Samsung H8000 bénéficie d'un style hors du commun, de toutes les fonctionnalités connectées du moment, mais pour l'instant, sur la pré-série reçue,...
