Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Samsung UN55ES8000 55-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D Slim LED HDTV. The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.40 stars, and the price range is $1274.49-$3499.99 (Based on size).

The aesthetics of Samsung ES8000 are very pleasing to the eye. The thin bezel and lighted LED at the bottom are very classy. This TV has lots of features that include a standard and touch-pad remote, motion and voice command, built-in camera and a very capable Smart TV platform. 3D performance has no visible crosstalk. The 2D-3D picture quality is excellent. The TV stand is pre-installed and unique. The response time on Samsung UNES8000 55-inch is good with dual core processing.

The voice commands work well, if the TV is not too loud. The hand motion doesn't work so well. The smart remote is buggy, and works intermittently. The brighter spots around the corners of the screen are noticeable during dark scenes. The media hub works well however, sometimes does not load properly and resets the TV.

All in all, the Samsung UN55ES8000 55-Inch is an average performing TV. It is sharp and clear with no noticeable cross-linking in TV shows, movies and most of the PS3 games. Users are not happy with the overall quality of the TV and report lot of quality control problems.
