About four weeks ago we looked at Samsung’s UN55D7000 and while it hit quite a few high points there were some glaring problems that made us shy away from recommending it. On paper at least the D8000 is supposed to succeed where its sibling failed...

The design of the Samsung UN46D8000 is quite attractive, especially the 1/4-inch clear bezel to make it seem like the image takes up the entire face of the TV. The stand has four legs arranged in an "X" shape, which are a little bent upward as you...

The easiest way of summing up the UN55D8000's Smart TV capabilities is to say they have a Version 1.0 feel to them. A few are flaky. The way the apps work isn't consistent. But many of these features are attractive and work well. Most...

For much of the time I spent with it, Samsung’s UN55D8000 3D LCD HDTV held me in thrall with its accurate color, strong contrast, and clear, solid images. I also dug the set’s slim design and stylish 3D eyewear. However, when you consider...

The Samsung UN60D8000 ($4299 MSRP) packs in every feature we’ve ever heard of, along with quite a few we’d never heard of. The TV is as thin as they come, with the panel measuring only 1.2 inches. The gleaming, 4-legged pedestal is also a...

There are some slight color uniformity issues as with all LED backlit LCD TVs, but in the UND8000 they aren't too distracting. Color information is not as rich as it is with the best plasma TVs on the market, the trade off being exceptional...

I won't soft-pedal my concerns about the Samsung's non-uniform screen lighting. It keeps this set from earning a Home Theater Top Pick. But this issue may bother some viewers more than others. And no other LCD 3D set I've seen can better...

We were highly impressed by the UA55D8000’s performance across all HD videos that we watched. The smart TV functions were mainly overshadowed by the poor response time from the remote control. Playing games, browsing and using the controls can be...

So is there anything redeeming about the UN55D8000 performance? If you're a sports fan (think NBA or NHL) or watch nothing but romantic comedies on Blu-ray, then my friend - the UN55D8000 is tailor made for you. In fact, it's brilliant. If you...
