The editors didn't like

  • Lighter black levels and imperfect screen uniformity hamper its picture significantly
  • Especially for such an expensive TV. Samsung charges too much for extra features that are largely unnecessary and poorly implemented
  • Voice
  • Motion
  • And touchpad controls are unreliable. Screen shows significant light bloom on the edges. Only three HDMI ports
  • Gesture system is currently very hard work
  • Provided picture presets are unhelpful
  • Backlight bleed possible unless output is low
  • Voice/gesture feels faddy
  • Needs tweaking for best pics
  • Pricey
  • Some light bleed from edges
  • Poor off-axis performance
  • Merciless with low-quality sources

  • Ambitious user interface. Beautiful design. Excellent white and black levels. Accurate color. Comes with 3D glasses.
  • Voice, motion, and touchpad controls are unreliable. Screen shows significant light bloom on the edges. Only three HDMI ports
  • With its voice- and motion-controlled interface, Samsung's ES8000F series does a lot to advance HDTV design, but some of the new features aren't quite ready for prime time....

  • At its current MSRP of $3799, the Samsung UN55ES8000 might seem overpriced. But there are some things to consider before staking that claim.First of all, testing the ES8000’s core performance—outside of its innovative new interfacing features—yields i...

  • Abstract:  Late last year, we took an in depth look at the UN55D8000 , an ultra expensive flagship 3D HDTV from Samsung. For the most part, the picture quality was superb and its focus upon aesthetics was second to none but we didn’t pull any punches. The D8000 fell...

  • Excellent 2D picture quality, Very good 3D display, excellent connectivity and media support, interesting new control options
  • Should have better chosen default for ‘Sharpness' setting
  • The Samsung US55ES8000 is a beautiful-looking TV with at the very least as much network capability as anything on the market, and far more than most.The Internet-based content offerings are solid, providing a wide range of choice for expanding viewing opt...

  • Excellent picture quality in HD and SD, Useful video sharing and apps, Striking design
  • Voice and motion features aren't perfect, Interface feels slightly slow, No huge advances in picture quality since 2011
  • Samsung's best 2012 LED TV is a strong performer for picture quality and design, and it has some interesting technical advancements in the form of voice and motion recognition. On its own, the Series 8 TV is a high quality device. Picture quality isn't va...
