I just received my TV, set it up and tested it out. First of all, installation was a breeze, camera and mic work beautifully as do the motion controls.

More importantly, the image is perfect. I don't know what these other reviewers are going on about but screen uniformity is phenomenal and on par with any of the other LED LCD tvs I've seen. Blacks are deep and inky and with the backlighting on the factory default, I saw no evidence of flashlighting or light creep.

3D works like a charm. Set the PS3 to recognize the new screen and the new 3D glasses pair with the TV quickly and easily and don't mind at all if I look away from the screen. Tested out Transformers 3D (don't laugh, I have 6 year old son and he loves them) and the image was crisp, detailed with very little artifacting or crosstalk. I fired up wipeout HD 3D and that performed beautifully as well.

For me, it was between this TV and the new Panasonic line up. While I agree that the plasmas handle blacks better than LCD screens, I prefered the image crispness of an LED LCD panel. I am not disappointed and more than happy with the es8000.

I upgraded from a samsung un55d6000 LED tv...which I found to already have a stunning picture.
I purchased the new 8000 series and unboxed it. very nice. placed it on the wall using the ultra slim mounts...and off i went. For starters, I got a good deal on the TV and was just going to try it and turn around and sell it. But after using it I said No way. I'm keeping it. It's just too freaking amazing.
Let's start with the picture. I can't say enough about how great my picture is...using my basic tv outdoor antenna. its truly incredible. after a month i still stare at it in amazement. pure joy. and those who complain "on occasion" about the bleeding or whatever. who cares. its during a rare blacked out commercial. get over it. has no issue when watching tv. the picture is stunning.
Now on to the small bezel. Well I thought this would be cool but a gimmick. wrong. simply amazing. its all picture...you are looking at. and from a sideview its super thin. crazy. The thin bezel and lighted LED "samsung" at the bottom is very classy. it says expensive. i buy a tv as a piece of furniture just as much as something to watch. beautiful in every way.

on to the features: voice control. i don't use it much. i sit too far away to use it by the tv microphone, and don't really use the voice control remote (tv comes with 2 remotes). so i don't really use it. Gestures: cool but doesn't work for me b/c my room is dark. only works in very lighted situations. and even in the middle of day, my room isn't lighted enough. cool feature, and it does work, but i don't really use it much.

on the remotes: the touchpad type remote with voice control i don't care for much. i like the standard remote like with the other lesser tv's...

Have had TV for a weekend now. First, a note on what I'm judging against: my last TV was a Toshiba 52" 'slim' DLP (13" deep, internal projection) at 720p, that didn't even have a built-in tuner, e.g. an "HD-ready" set from about 7 years ago. So maybe anything would have pleased me by comparison!!

But by that comparison the picture is night and day. I've read all the reviews about 'flashlighting' and 'off axis contrast decay' and yadda yadda yadda with edge-lit LED backed LCDs. I don't care. It looks brilliant. In fact the image is so crisp and clean that I can't help feel that shows I formerly thought were a bit 'gritty' and 'realistic' now have an almost unnaturally perfect-lit and colored crispness to them in 1080p, the oft mentioned 'soap opera effect'. I'm sure I'll get used to that. At the backlight level I'm set at (haven't entirely settled but running between "11" and "13" on the scale right now) the off-axis contrast is fine; our viewing positions are about 9-11ft from the set and separated by about 3-4' which puts us < 15 degs off 'normal' to the set face. The glossy screen does glare a little with ambient light, but even thru that the pic is clearer than thru the 'matte' hence more diffused reflection we got at all angles with the DLP set.

Built-in tuner is pretty powerful. Just hooked it up to my in-attic antenna (which has a long cable to get down to the living room) and we picked up every channel the old DirectTV HD receiver did (which also has an OTA tuner, and which we were using even though we stopped our DirecTV subscription several years ago) and then some. (Maybe part of the benefit is the DTV receiver had to have the OTA/sat multiplexer splitter in line, but then again it also had an inline amp).

I bought this TV, fell in love and ended up returning it due to a factory defect (a large dead pixel right in the center). I ended up getting a Viera plasma and think it has a much better picture, but I wanted to review this TV since I still feel it is amazing in many ways, and is still a worthy purchase despite its exorbitant price.

First off, this TV is sexy; it is simply stunningly designed and looks very elegant. The base is unique, the bezel is almost non existent, and the faux chrome edges and base make the TV slick and stylish. Second, the layout of the menus, the web browser and apps, and look of the on screen guide is as good as it gets. Also, the HDMI and other ports are located on the bottom right, which, to me at least, is ideal.

So, why did I return it and not just get a replacement since it was a simple dead pixel defect?

*The sluggish speed of loading the apps and web controls

*The hand movement gesture feature isn't as glamorous as they claim

*The smart remote is buggy, and works intermittently

*The white halo blotches. The brighter spots throughout the screen are noticeable during dark scenes

*Night scenes are not that great, whereas plasma provides stunning night scenes

*I suspect quality control concerns with the TV

All in all, the features to me when I was ordering the TV were extremely cool, but I realized I would never use them. The style was nice, and I miss how sleek it looked, but the picture quality of my new Panasonic GT series is substantially better. I am actually happy about the defect. If you want style, extreme thinness of the TV, the intuitive and elegant menu design, and abundance of apps, then you will love this TV. Just know that plasma TV's do provide a better picture quality, but still have their downfalls. Happy shopping!
