  • And the industry's most capable Smart TV
  • Ambitious user interface. Beautiful design. Excellent white and black levels. Accurate color. Comes with 3D glasses.
  • Sensational
  • Slimline design
  • Very good 2D and 3D pictures
  • Excellent Smart services
  • Dualcore picture quality
  • Great multimedia file support
  • Brilliant
  • Bright picture
  • Excellent black levels
  • Superb color accuracy
  • Gorgeous design
  • Upgradable hardware

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

  • Excellent colour gamut out-of-the-box, Reference colour gamut after calibration, Reference greyscale after calibration, Excellent video processing, Impressive array of calibration controls, Well designed and responsive menu system, Well implemented Smart
  • Some clouding on the backlight, Some minor undefeatable noise reduction, Very occasional stutter in image processing, Poor performance with off-axis viewing, HDMI inputs too near the edge of the screen, Only 3 HDMI inputs, Voice and motion controls are a
  • It's no surprise that the 55ES8000 works extremely well as media player and we had no problems with anything we threw at it using a variety of media servers including Samsung's own Smartshare software. Owners of mobile devices – either iOS or Android - ca...

  • 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 characteristic...

  • The Samsung UN65ES8000 costs a lot more than other series made by the same manufacturer. But the high price you will pay is going to show itself in this TV's performance, design and other attributes. So if you are someone who wants what's best in LED TV ...

  • The Samsung UE55ES8000 is a high quality edge LED LCD HDTV. It produces good black level depth in dark rooms, and blacks that look exceptionally inky and deep in brighter environments. Crucially, the review sample we received had significantly less screen...

  • The new Samsung ES8000 is the first television that can be controlled with speech commands and hand gestures. While there is room for improvement in the implementation, it does indicate the direction in which (high-end) televisions will go in the coming...

  • Abstract:  But now the dust is settling, and the TVs are showing up on test benches, and to me, at least, in retrospect all the brouhaha seems sort of silly. The model in particular that showed up on HomeTechTell's test bench is the top-of-the-line (for its size, a...

  • Abstract:  The amount of extra features and interfacing options on this TV are quite staggering: a traditional remote, Samsung's new smart remote , and an IR blaster all come in the box. Outside of the traditional remote infrastructure, the ES8000 series features vo...

  • Irresistible design, Outstanding 2D, Very good 3D, Leading online system
  • Poor picture presets, Gesture control can frustrate, Backlight bleed with 3D, Average audio
  • When Samsung makes a flagship TV like the Samsung UE46ES8000, it usually means business. So it is that this 46-inch star boasts a gorgeous ultra-slim design, and an unparalleled feature list. Highlights include new voice, touchpad remote and gesture cont...

  • Eye-popping design, Exceptional feature count, Excellent 3D and 2D performance
  • The gesture control system could be better, Occasional backlight bleed, especially with 3D, Picture presets are poor
  • The Samsung UE46ES8000 is at heart a quite brilliant TV. It does its best to hide its potential behind some unhelpful - to say the least - picture presets, but provided you spend just a couple of minutes to work round those, it's capable of giving you som...
