Samsung UN55C8000 55-Inch 3D LED HDTV

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

Following setting everything up and calibrating the settings - extremely essential - I loaded Avatar into the Blu-Ray Player @ 1080p/24 and it was Incredible to say the Least. I do not think there could be a much better picture. Everything was crisp, clear, and life-like! Like a window to an additional globe. I did notice using the Auto-Motion set to the default that issues had been a bit TOO crisp and life-like, nearly like somebody filmed it having a HD Camera, and also you had been really watching Raw footage. I describe it like a "soap-opera" impact. Following turning the Judder to 0, and also the Blur to 10, in Auto-Motion, there was a extremely pleased medium - Ideal Movie Watching Bliss!

I discover myself wanting to replay each and every Blu-Ray Movie I personal, just to determine it on this TV.

The viewing angle of this TV is like all other LED, LCD, or Projection TV's, Not optimal - the picture does get a bit lighter from an extreme angle and that is it - still extremely extremely watchable, it's significantly much better than the at-an-angle picture of my Hitachi Projection TV. It's not a cause to bash this Item. The black levels are incredible, the Uniformity might be a bit much better in All white backgrounds, but that's very uncommon and hardly noticeably. Like most individuals I do the abundance of my severe Movie watching sitting in line using the Center of the Screen anyway!

The sound from the speakers is fantastic, as soon as you tune it, by default the speakers place out a bit much more bass than the enclosures can deal with, so a bit of vibration is produced, but following tuning, it was pefect!

You truly require a HD picture to determine the glory of this tv, a normal cable signal won't do the job, it'll highlight each and every flaw within the picture.

The Widgets and also the Web worked fantastic using the Wi-Fi Adapter, Facebook worked fine, and also the Utube loading speed of videos exactly where great. I adore checking my stock figures, although not having to break away from the show that I'm watching.

The remote control might be a bit much more tactile, I discover myself having to take a look at the keys prior to pressing, and occasionally pressing the incorrect key when playing games, simply because of the flat keys.

I've but to view something in 3D, I'm waiting for the costs of the equipement to drop prior to I do. I didn't purchase this TV truly for the 3D function it was just an good bonus to have for the future.

So to summarize, if you're searching for the crispest life-like picture that you are able to imagine, it appears you've discovered it with the Samsung UN55C8000.
