  • Gorgeous design
  • Upgradable hardware

  • And the industry's most capable Smart TV
  • Sensational

The editors didn't like

  • Voice
  • Motion
  • And touchpad controls are unreliable. Screen shows significant light bloom on the edges. Only three HDMI ports
  • Some light bleed from edges
  • Poor off-axis performance
  • Merciless with low-quality sources
  • 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
  • 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

  • Accurate colours: average delta E of 3.1, Effective motion interpolation function, Remote with builtin touchpad is particularly practical, Low power use: 107 watts
  • Glossy screen: reflections are a problem, Tight viewing angles, More 3D crosstalk than in the D8000, Disappointing contrast: 1960:1, The model we tested was prone to clouding
  • The Samsung ES8000 is ahead of its time. While there's still room for improvement in the motion and voice control systems, it's the first TV out there to integrate this kind of function. And, on the whole, they work reasonably well. Image quality, on t...

  • Picture quality; Camera is great for Skype; Thin bezel looks lovely
  • Voice and gesture control is still a work in progress; Confusing Smart TV software
  • The Samsung UE55ES8000 is a beautiful TV with mostly great picture quality and a decent EPG that's let down by its voice and gesture capabilities and some of the Smart TV software....

  • Voice recognition works well, Can be upgraded, The best 3D imaging we've seen
  • Gesture recognition, not so much, Not what you would call cheap
  • A brilliant smart TV made into something extraordinary by its next-gen control options ...

  • Brilliant HD content handling, Tested contrast ratio among the highest in TVs, Edge to edge design is classy, Solid table stand, with unique design, Gesture & voice controls are fun add-ons, Touchpad remote very useful for browsing
  • Don't see a regular use of voice & gesture control, Display is very reflective, SD content will be disrespectful to the TV
  • The Samsung Series 8 TVs are possibly some of the smartest HDTVs in the business. Some really neat add-ons here - gesture control, face recognition, voice navigation and even a touchpad remote. But most importantly, it is the delightful performance that m...

  • Equipped with connections for component, composite, optical, RF In for satellite, RF In for cable, a DVI audio in and an MHL port, Packed with 3 HDMI ports, Have a vertical resolution of 1920 pixels, Enables 3D content, USB enabled, Full HD, Horizontal Re
  • Confusing QWERTY remote, Little bit expensive
  • After going through the UA55ES800 Review, we can conclude that this smart TV has got lot of premium features. However, this TV does not suit the requirements of mid-end consumers very much. Samsung UA55ES800 Price in India has been placed at INR 264,500 A...

  • 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 televis...

  • Abstract:  As you'd expect, the Samsung ‘s picture quality is outstanding right across the board. Bright, detailed and stable, the 3D image is the best we've seen from a TV so far, and high-def pictures (Blu-ray, Freesat or Freeview HD) are impressive too. It's part...

  • Beautiful screen; new and innovative ways to interact with the TV; lots of connectivity options.
  • Voice recognition isn't always accurate; typing on the virtual keyboard can get tiring.
  • The features of the Smart TV have not been perfected yet and do not work all the time but they are there when you need them. Also, the Evolution Kit allows the TV to be upgraded and Samsung could improve the features in the future. Other than the voic...

  • Samsung has grown from strength to strength with the ES8000 Smart TV. What we'd like to see are improved noise filters, SD processing, crosstalk-free 3D, and last but not least, a more direct approach for their Smart TV controls.We can't fault the ES8000...
