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...

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...

I used to think a 55″ TV was massive but after buying a home with a two story great room, I could see why many people are choosing larger and larger TVs. They just have to fit the space. A 42″ or 46″ TV would feel too small in that space. I used to think...

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 on HD...

Say hello to Samsung’s bad boy smart TV. This epic 55-incher has all the works, of course: 3D support, LED backlighting for stunning contrast, a super slim silver frame you’ll barely be able to make out from your perch on the sofa. But it’s also one...

Very good) Icing on the cake… even when there is a lot of junk in front of the TV, the remote still works The Samsung ES8000 Series is very attractive because of its striking design and large set of seemingly very advanced features, but after using...

This is Samsung's latest Smart TV, the UN55ES8000F. A, B, C, D, and E were killed in a tragic skydiving accident... just kidding! This is a rather large upgrade in terms of both the hardware and software. The last couple iterations of Samsung Smart...

Ignore the gesture control gimmicks and the core of this TV has some top features. Smart Hub is great, while image quality is good, but not the best in class. Considering the over-£2,000 price point we feel it makes for a good, solid TV rather than an...

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 from the...

Many TVs take advantage of smartphone functionality to have their own control apps alongside the traditional remote. Samsung has gone even further with the 8000 series, including this , adding motion gesture and voice control to the list of ways you...

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...

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 the best, you'll...

The Samsung UA55ES8000 is available in India at an MRP of Rs. 2,73,000. This television is a product that is meant for a niche audience and the price is the only justification for this fact. The model possesses cutting edge features that very few...

Samsung must be feeling sincerely flattered this year, as it would seem almost every manufacturer is in some way imitating the Korean giant's designs and features. The dominance of the world's largest TV manufacturer can't be underestimated and, in a...

Samsung’s ES8000 is a worthy update to its predecessor, and the company demonstrates its edge over much of the competition with the Smart TV functionality. Is it worth the humongous RRP? That’s a null point, given retailers are already discounting it...

Will the escalation of features in today’s tellyboxes never cease? Apparently not if we’re to judge by Samsung’s newest top of the line model, the UA55ES8000. The TV delivers a good-sized screen with a 139cm diagonal. Full HD, with LED...

In a unique (and frankly bizarre) role reversal, the Samsung UE55ES8000 becomes the first TV to watch and listen to you. Offering both motion and voice control, in addition to two remote zapper options, it's probably the most controllable telly ever...

The UE46ES8000 is a bold stab at redefining the high-end TV market, one that almost pays off. Even without its voice and motion control party tricks, this would be considered a highly desirable 3D TV, with a strong online proposition and...
