Pros * The design is simply state of the art. This tv's design sets the trend for forthcoming tvs.
*Great picture quality with vibrant colors and contrast
*3d looks awesome
*Excellent black level
Cons * Screen uniformity.
* You may experience slight ghosting while viewing actual 3d content, but with tweaking the display the ghosting can almost be removed.
Summary Cons aside, this is an great tv and one of the tvs that impressed me amongst the other tvs at the stores..
Pros Vivid clear picture in 2D or 3D. #d Is comfortable even for many hours. Changing a 2D HD movie to 3D makes it like a new movie. Even SD video looks very good. Watching Baseball and Football has been excellent. Color rendition is out of sight.
Cons The remote is a little cumbersome and a little complicated.
Summary Even after a couple of months now I still see things and go WOW that was cool. I've also compared after the fact at equal class TVs and would purchase the UN55D8000 over Sony, LG, Panasonic or Sharp.
"Pretty Cool TV"on by E Hunt
Pros This is a slick looking tv. It works very well in my bright family room. The picture is extremely vivid and makes you feel like you're watching 3d images when you're not. It's light...my plasma was HEAVY! I've been told the 3-d is "cool".
Cons It was set way too bright so we adjusted that and it's better now. Samsung advertised the free qwerty and glasses as included...BB salesman said they were both in the box. Neither were included and I had to either submit via internet or mail to get them
Summary I tried to post this review on Samsung's site, but they wouldn't post it.I am by no means an expert with 3d tvs...this is my first. I picked this tv primarily due to the vivid screen picture that seems like you're watching 3d (or a soap) all the time and the fact that LEDs are supposed to be good in bright rooms. This replaced a plasma which was unviewable when the sun rises in the morning. This one works very well in the room and is slick. I won't be able to enjoy the 3d (due to no depth perception) so I got it for the 2d picture.Although the reviews for this one weren't as good as the 7000, I picked this one due to the qwerty keyboard and free glasses. Not sure how much I'll use the qwerty (or main) remote as I'm using a new RF one...which I LOVE. Overall, while the picture is not perfect (due to overbrightness, I like this tv and look forward to watching HD with it.
Pros large looking screen with minimal bezel, bright, sharp, focused picture. light weight, easy to wall mount and move; audio return channel to feed audio from apps back to surround sound recievers; skype, maps and web browser are superb
Cons price is almost out of range for most
