Flashy with flaws

Have had this tv for about 4 months now. The picture quality on blu-ray and video games is good. Have had alot of problems with the tv though. Had the screen replaced once to attempt to fix a problem. Tv has horrible viewing angles. Pretty much has to be

Would Recommend this TV

I have been a loyal Samsung Customer for many years now. The two main reasons I continue to purchase products from them is because, 1. They have the best products. 2. I have had a flawless experience with the Customer Support Department at EVERY level. They have always gone above and beyond what I expect and they truly want the customer happy with the Samsung Product they own. So if you have a problem with your Samsung Product, make sure to go to and register the product and request support and they will make sure the problem is resolved ASAP. Thanks Samsung!

Good Picture and can be update/new hardware

For a couple more hundreds, got this TV. A wise selection on my part. It can be updated with the evolution kit( we hope it will have a quad processor). All of my Samsung(5) TV's has above average picture.

By A5SamsungFamily on Adorama - May 19, 2013

Best contrast rating in the market!

Everything is as advertised. Astonishing picture quality. Wireless Internet works smoothly. It is connected to satellite TV, Blu-ray and 7.1 A/V Receiver, quite an experience. 3D is mind blowing!

By eapi on Adorama - Apr 3, 2013

Picture perfect

The picture is so clear, it's almost distracting. It's like everything you watch is bluray -- it actually took some getting used to. The other super cool feature is the edge to edge picture with virtually no bezel. Almost feels like you are looking out a window and the world is moving. Very impressive technology.

Best TV that I have ever bought

Screen resolution and colors are striking! the TV speakers are far above average and the use of the remote is easy to handle.

By rhlarsen on Adorama - Apr 10, 2013

Great TV

I've had the TV about 2 weeks. The picture is wonderful. Voice and hand control is a little shaky, but nothing to make me not love this TV. Well worth the money.

By MadamG2u on Adorama - Apr 1, 2013

Excellent product

Love the feature rich components of this TV. Easy to set up. All screen, light weight, numerous inputs and multiple ways to communicate to the set. Little extra cost for this higher end model is worth it if you are not freaked out by technology. Would def

Great Smart TV

The TV has a great picture & sound quality. Looks great when matched up with a samsung blu ray player... TV needs to have more HDMI ports.

Best TV I have personally owned

Has an amazing picture, is extremely slim on the wall, and the Smart TV capabilities like netflix, vudu, and skype have made this TV unbelievable.

Full of features that were a little overwhelming for a non-techie like me. A lot of reading of the owners manual and trial and error actions before I acquired a reasonable understanding of the many capabilities of this television. Very satisfied with my f

A shift in the way we access information and entertainment

Despite the somewhat ridiculous motion and voice commands, which prove to be a nominally, the TV is very smart and with the use of the Samsung keyboard, it makes web navigation as easy as if you were in front of your computer. This TV is somewhat a game c

Samsung Smart TV UN55ES8000FXZA

The quality of this picture is simply superb! I love the SmartHub and applications that tie in my Samsung TV to my media player. I can play my movies, show my pictures and play my music from my PC to either of my Smart Samsung TVs

Pure Junk

This was my second Samsung TV. The first one (a 42 inch) lasted 20 months before it stopped working. I bought the 8000 series 55 inch shortly thereafter. This one lasted 9 months, but it was under warranty and a repairman came to my house and installed a

Poor Performance makes, experience not worth the wait.

Bad: 1. The performance of the smart TV is slow. I have a 15MB Cable Modem internet connection. My internet streaming is fast except for this TV. I am using a wired Ethernet connection to my local home network. YouTube, and the web browser, the uStream ap

By azmoses on Adorama - Dec 10, 2012

Buggy Software

Samsung didn't take the time to fine tune this product. Buggy software makes it frustrating to use. TV use should be a relaxing and easy to use experience. If they can't make it that way then the feature shouldn't be added. Samsung should add a web browsi

By Cstar on Adorama - Dec 10, 2012

This is the best tv I have ever owned!

This tv, is really just a 55 computor monitor. The picture is so accurate, it appears you can just walk into it. Cant wait to see what feature can be updated when they come out in 2013!

Fantastic TV

I've had my 55" 3D tv now for about 4 months and am very happy with the TV and how it's performed. The quality of the colors, design, back lighting shows every time i turn it on. The 3D is great as well. What I also like is that Samsung continues to impro

This is OK

Too many features that I do not need and expensive

I fell in love with picture quality in store

I wasn't happy with the price, but the picture is amazing. This tv has many features that others do not offer, but the picture alone is the best feature.

By Dus10 on Adorama - Nov 18, 2012

Great TV but Features are a little overwhelming

My in-laws just got the ES8000 55". It has a beautiful picture and my only complaint on style is that the tv bezel is grey (titan) color instead of black. Now the features, it does it all (almost :)) The hand gestures, are almost too sensitive, any slight

Overall Great - SmartHub Audio Disappointing Unforced Error

I am overall happy with this set - a very good picture quality and, in my case, no real problems that are sometimes inherent to edge-lit LCDs. I am really disappointed in one particular feature of this "Smart TV" however, and it seems to me to be an entir

By KameshSarma on Adorama - Nov 4, 2012

Its a real Smart TV

When they gave it the name "Smart TV", they only gave it its fair name, that's because you will feel like you are interacting with a real person, not just a TV. Picture quality is amazing. The sound is just perfect, and the apps on it makes it exceptional

Exceptionally Nice

This is my second 3D LED Samsung TV and bigger is better. Smart functions take some time to get used to and the optional remote keyboard is worth the convenience. The picture is exceptional and the features are very complete. The 3D is superb.

By SwissAJS on Adorama - Oct 8, 2012

slightly a little better then last years 8000 series

I was expecting for this tv to be alot better then last years model but it's only slightly better. The 3D is a little better and the colors are brighter and make the picture look more realistic. But besides that its about the same thing.

By Reno775 on Adorama - Oct 5, 2012


One word says it all----EXCELLENT!!!!! The picture surpasses others I looked at.

By Higstrum on Adorama - Oct 5, 2012

Good and Bad Together

After the third set I decided to give up on this tv! This is a great tv in terms of picture quality, colors, design, connections, GUI, calibrations, web browser, skype camera etc.etc., and actually it is one of the most advanced televisions on the market.
