  • The Samsung UNF8000 series of LED backlit HDTVs offer solid performance and loads of features in a beautiful streamlined cabinet, but its black levels are mediocre and its ports are awkwardly placed....

  • Excellent Black levels for an LED TV, Superior brightness and color, Most beautifully designed TV of the year, Smooth fastmotion video resolution, Superfast user interface
  • Poor offaxis performance, TV stand is as wide as the TV itself, Remote takes getting used to
  • Any minor quirks associated with Samsung's ultra-rich Smart TV interface should be considered a by-product of aggressive efforts at improving the Smart TV experience. Future iterations will likely be even more refined, and that's exciting to think about...

  • Fantastic smart features, Natural colour, Sharp, defined detail, Inky blacks
  • Voice and gesture control is gimmicky, Expensive, Whites could be punchier
  • We really like the Samsung: it's a cutting-edge set with improved smart features, a friendlier user experience, and a definite step up in both sound and picture performance. But it's not flawless: the motion and voice controls are far from perfect, and...

  • Glossy screen causes glare, Narrow viewing angles, Potential for clouding, Poor sound quality
  • The Samsung F8000 certainly has more bells and whistles than any other TV on the market, from S-Recommendation to voice and motion control. The picture quality, however, is disappointing. We expected more out of a TV like this. Just like the F7000, in ord...

  • So then, the F8000 is a very good TV. We would've like to see a bit more thought gone into its design, to ease cable management.It also takes a bit of setting up to get a really good picture, with Samsung still insisting - as most manufacturers do - in ma...

  • Classleading smart TV system, Deep black levels by LED standards, Strong, bold colours, Decent audio performance
  • Motionand voicecontrol features are still gimmicky, 'Crease' across the top and bottom of the display when showing certain images
  • The UE55F8000 is the best LED TV I've seen so far this year. It has strong picture and audio quality and a truly excellent smart TV system, making it a well-rounded package. Nevertheless, it's hugely expensive and if you mostly use your TV to watch mov...
