This TV is absolutely incredible. I got the 60 inch and bought direct from Samsung's website as I had a discount. I love the design of the actual TV, it's base is sharp looking and the TV and bezel are so thin it's going to look amazing mounted on my stone wall. The resolution and black levels are amazing. When I first saw the motion control demonstrated at Fry's when they first got them in, it looked completely unresponsive, but after getting mine, I now know why that was. The room has to be bright. They were demonstrating it in a very dim room. It doesn't see your hand movement completely if it's dark. It is totally responsive and much more fluid than I originally thought. Honestly speaking it's REALLY cool, but I doubt I'll end up using it that much, maybe for my fantasy football app during football season or when I can't find the remote and I want to turn the volume up. I bet Samsung will create a wider range of uses for the motion control through updates later on. So I feel like there is more to come from the motion control as well as the voice control.

The voice control works really well. There isn't a huge list of commands, only ones on the screen, but it's neat and very impressive to people to speak to your TV, definitely peaking on the wow factor. Like I said, there aren't a ton of voice commands, but I feel this is a good base for expansion by Samsung updates.The amount of apps is plentiful and I love the fact that Samsung has introduced the Evolution Kits. What a great idea. Just a simple software upgrade instead of selling a TV when something new comes out.

Now for my only negative thus far into my purchase. I rented The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on bluray to test how good the quality of the TV really is. It's phenomenal.

When you move from the 55" to the 60"-60"+ size, LED TV options become a bit more limited.
Often its a toss up between size vs display quality.
That said, purchasing the Samsung Es8000 doesn't feel like a compromise at all!

######### OUT OF THE BOX #########
Out of the box the picture quality is OK at best. The TV has a natural tenancy to throw to much RED filtering. The brightness vs contrast is off causing quite a bit of clipping to occure.
I also had quite a lot of light bleeding around the 4 corners and a patch about the size of my hand above the SAMSUNG logo at the bottom of the screen.

######### Light Bleeding #########
Out of the box I had a small amount of light bleeding at the 4 corners.
During the day 85% of the time it wasn't enough to bother me.
That said, at night it was a different story. The light-bleeding really distracted from dark scenes in movies.

This is where CALIBRATION comes into play.
After calibrating my TV almost all the light bleeding vanished. I was able to find my TVs ideal black / white, brightness and backlight settings.
Now there is NO visible light bleeding during the day and only a very very very small amount when viewed at night in an almost pitch black room. All LED tv's will have a small amount of light bleeding due to their design - once calibrated the Samsung ES8000 really preforms well above most current LED's out there.

######### CALIBRATION IS A MUST #########
Calibrating your new TV will 1) Fix a lot of the light bleeding issues and 2) Bring out the best picture of your TV !

If you don't preform a simple calibration on your TV then you're wasting its potential and your money since you'll be left with a under preforming TV.

I have had the 60" ES8000 for about 2 weeks now.
It is a nice TV.
We have a 46" ES8000 at work and I have never seen such an amazing TV, once I used it for a few hours I was hooked.
The 60" TV is really nice, it fits right above our fireplace.
I used a VideoSecu Ultra Slim Thin Flat LED HDTV Fashion TV Wall Mount Bracket for 32"-55" LED TV VESA 200x200 300x300 400x400 up to 800x800 - Adjustable Cable Length 1Y2 to mount this TV, and it was awesome.
You hang the TV like a picture with a wire and two special washers.
The TV is less than 1.5" from the front of the screen to the wall, thinner than most of our paintings we have.

The picture quality is GREAT, not perfect GREAT. This 60" has some cloudyness/bleed through in the corners that is EXTREMELY visible on dark/black backgrounds.

I have read a bunch of forum replies about leaving the TV on for 100hours to get rid of that, and we are on hour 80 right now. It SEEMS to be getting better, but it could be the placebo affect going on.

The 3d is awesome, Transformers and Avatar on the 60" in 3D rock!
You get 4 pairs of glasses with this TV, so it is enough for the family and friends!

The Smart Hub is really cool, the application selection is a bit sparse, but it should be growing.

One last thing that sold me on the TV was the expansion pack that this TV has.
It allows you to constantly upgrade your TV with whatever new technology Samsung comes out with next year, so instead of having to buy a new TV, you can buy the corresponding upgrade kit and plug it in to the expansion pack!
