One of the most appealing factors about the Samsung UN55D8000 is its almost all image look when viewing, a result of the super thin frame around the picture area.
It is one of the best looking TVs in the market today. The stand is four-legged, has a chrome finish and inbuilt rear connections, which reduce clatter.
The panel depth is at 1.2 inches so this model is one of the thinnest in the market.
240Hz Refresh Display
The Auto Motion technology is made useful in this splashy Samsung UN55D8000 55” TV and it really brings out clarity and picture detail, especially when you are watching a game and really do not want blur.
This is what Auto Motion Plus 240Hz does; it breaks down every split second of the action and gives you a detailed account from every frame. This Samsung UN55D8000 gives you good fluid motion picture viewing.
HD properties of the Samsung UN55D8000
Anyone purchasing this TV would have to be very particular about his or her picture viewing, as the Samsung UN55D8000 fully delivers in Full HD 1080p resolution for that special color display; plus you can also connect all your other devices in the HDMI ports and experience HD picture and sound through a single cable input.
The Samsung UN55D8000 TV is visually stunning with its 0.2” ultra thin bezel, which uniquely frames the content of the screen giving the display a fine quality.
This metal edge is finely tuned and brushed to give the TV an overall look of cool and the stand is pretty impressive too; it is a Quad Stand that is made to adjust and blend with whichever environment you set it in.
Micro Dimming Plus
You may have had picture problems with your other TVs due to the common image distortion, which comes as a result of diffused light, but the Samsung UN55D8000 uses the latest LED picture contrast technology to make sure you get a visually appealing display without the halo effect.
You will get fantastic color depth and supremely bright white as well.
This TV turns animations and movies like the Chronicles of Narnia into visual feasts.
There are four HDMI ports and dongles are also supplied.
There are also three USB ports, an Ethernet jack a Dsub15 PC input and it has inbuilt Wi-Fi.
The remote is an asymmetrical design and it comes with all the typical TV controls, but it also has a numeric keyboard with a backlight.
One of the assistance features that comes with this TV is the E-manual, which many people are having problems with.
The TV does come with a physical manual, but the sketchy 23-page pamphlet does little to explain some of the more tricky processes and having to enter the E-manual to look up an issue and then exiting to try it out can be irritating.
When you flip the remote over, you will find it has a QWERTY keyboard, which you have to sync with the TV; in order to do this you have to hold it no more than 8 inches from the TV.
The QWERTY side of the remote does not have a backlight though and some of the keys are so small they cannot be seen clearly unless you are in a bright room.
3D performance is exceptional for this model, with a notable reduction of crosstalk.
It uses radio signals to sync the TV and glasses to make the active shutter work well without any flicker. The glasses are better too compared to those of the previous model; they are brighter and offer a much more comfortable experience.

Overall, it is a great model from Samsung and with the fantastic high definition images it displays, you will not have any problems with your viewing; also, the Auto Motion technology eliminates all possibilities of motion blur.
There are however some notable slipups; for instance, when you look at the screen, there is a reduction in brightness that is in fact a lowering of image contrast and it seems to be affected by the viewing level.
Screen uniformity is another one of its problems; this issue shows up as dark vertical strips on the screen when you watch certain dark scenes.
Sometimes the edges of the screen will light up and some horizontal strips will appear on the screen.
Other than the minor annoyances mentioned above, Samsung has made a considerable effort with the Samsung UN55D8000 to create a stylish TV with accurate color display and internet applications for your browsing pleasure.
