Samsung UNF8000 series
We didn't think much of last year's Samsung E8000, but if you're fortunate enough to live in the United States then the company says you'll be getting a special tweaked version of its followup: the F8000. The last time we spoke to Samsung, it told us that the U.S. version was planned to include a local dimming backlight, which should give a boost in picture quality.

The good: The Samsung UNF8000 LED LCD TV delivers excellent picture quality with deep black levels, accurate color, effective video processing and a uniform screen; stunning minimalist design with hairline bezel and low-profile stealth stand; mind-boggling feature list with touch-pad remote, IR blaster with cable box control, four pairs of 3D glasses, motion and voice command, and the industry's most capable Smart TV platform.
The bad: Extremely expensive; wide stand; cable box control scheme still inadequate for heavy DVR users.
The bottom line: The excellent yet expensive Samsung UNF8000 is a tour de force of LED LCD TV design, features, and picture quality.
