"Simply beautiful!"5.0 starson by rossj81
Pros: Beautiful picture - 2D/3D, smooth motion processing, elegant frame and body styling, deep colors / high contrast, internet capable for widgets and firmware updates, and countless picture customization for custom tweaking geeks.
Cons: Off angle viewing does lighten picture but this is the case with most LCD/LEDs. As with all thin LEDs the TV stand doesn't feel sturdy enough. Motion clarity is great but while watching Wall-E I notice a little stutter when the camera is panning.
Summary: I've owned this LED TV for a week now and it has been no less than perfect. Hooked it up, downloaded the firmware update and I've been in heaven since. The TV is extremely thin and beautiful. The colors are vibrant, blacks are deep and motion is clear and smooth. My biggest concern was how well the 240hz handled sports and action movies and thank god I have not been let down. The PS3 is capable of playing 1080p/24 and the C8000 displays the input when the blu-ray begins. I've watched Star Trek, Transformers 1 & 2, Batman Dark Night 1 / 2, and a few pixar movies and the film / video quality has been no less then stunning. My wife is blown away buy the natural film like quality of this TV. The 3D capability looks just as good as the theaters. 2D picture quality is the best I've seen on any LCD LED TV. The TV is not wireless but my cable modem is next to my cable box so I prefer the faster wired connection. I have a receiver but I did notice the TV speaker quality is pretty damn good considering how thin it is. I notice no lit up edges that the 2009 models had. I don't understand the lower rating CNET gave the TV maybe they got a bad test dummy model. I was able to order the TV from Amazon for 2900.00 and if you ask me the flagship Samsung 2010 3D LED model was worth every penny. The TV has only been out now a couple of weeks and people who don't even own the TV or have went through the picture settings to customizes the blur and judder are posting negative reviews based on CNETs rating. Considering the 2 firmware updates by Samsung, 1080p/24 working perfectly fine, 2D/3D capabilities, beautiful image and motion processing, perfectly fine remote(everyone with a highend TV uses universal remotes)nonplastic reflective frame and the fact that the TV can be bought online for 2900.00 or even less, Cnet should consider reviewing their review.
