The Samsung UN55D8000 has a stunning design that minimizes the frame around
the screen for a nearly all-picture look. It produces deep black levels
with accurate color, together with very good video processing and 3D picture quality. The Smart Hub Internet portal provides more apps and
services than the competition, as well as a Web
browser, and is easy to use thanks to the Bluetooth keyboard and QWERTY keyboard included.
However, at the time of writing, the UN55D8000 series is very expensive and exhibits some screen
uniformity with brightness variation and banding. In its current version Smart Hub does not include Amazon Instant, its search function does not return very relevant results and its interface can be cluttered and confusing.
