"Hot Product"

After a look at the Samsung UE55D8000, Pocket-Lint declared that it has the best 3D picture they've ever seen on a Samsung display. They also found its high-def images to be excellent and appreciated its other features, including its appealing design, Smart Hub IPTV, Freeview HD and Freesat tuners; though they noted that its Motion Plus processing was a bit shakey.

"Editor's Choice"

The only thing that might be considered a drawback of Samsung's D8000 is its price, though reviewers at CNet say that if you can afford it, then this excellent 3D LED TV comes with their wholehearted recommendation. They found it to offer stunning image quality, top-notch online features, and the best 3D performance that they've ever come across.

T3 couldn't help but be impressed by Samsung's UE55D8000. Despite an incredibly slim, minimalist design, it turned out to be feature-packed, perhaps the highlight being the Smart Hub IPTV content. The 3D experience is absorbing, and 2D pictures are brilliantly detailed with excellent black levels. The Motion Plus settings resulted in a few too many artefacts though.

4.5 out of 5 stars

TechRadar found the Samsung UE55D8000 to be a truly outstanding TV that more than justifies its price. With its extensive online services, it can genuinely claim to be a 'smart' TV, which also offers superb 2D image quality and stunning design. Some small issues with 3D image quality and poor picture presets are the only complaints to be made about the UE55D8000.
