Samsung is already giving Apple a run for its money in the smartphone market, and if Apple ever does launch a TV product it will find Samsung ready and waiting with its own Smart TV range. We tested Samsung’s ES8000, a striking 55-inch TV with a...80

February 5th, 2013, In Reviews, Television Sets, by Mike OsadciwIt was in the Aug/Sept 2012 issue of CANADA HiFi that I reviewed Samsung’s excellent flagship PN64E8000 plasma television. Equipped with many of the latest user technologies and...-

The UE48ES8000 is Samsung's 46in monster of a flagship TV. It doesn't seem quite as big as that number suggests thanks to a remarkably slim bezel, but it will still dominate most living rooms.The picture quality was strikingly good, especially...-

Make no bones about it – the UE55ES8000 is a magnificent TV. There aren't many sets that can match its incredible feature list and level of innovation. Voice and gesture control, touch-pad remote and face recognition make it feel like a TV...90

Presumably in an effort to make daytime showroom pictures appear bright and vibrant, contrast and backlight presets are too high. With minor adjustments, you can enjoy the UE46ES8000 as it was meant to be - a trully great TV; with the added benefit of...92

Even though Samsung's Smart Interaction is ahead of its time – and, frankly, might never catch on – there is plenty here in the way of performance and features to qualify this high-end television's equally premium price. If you want...90
