Samsung’s new Series 8 range of LED-backlit, LCD TVs are finally here. Now, the Series 8 line from Samsung isn’t designed for every day users, but specifically for those who are looking for the ultimate TV they can get their hands on. The new UA55D8000 is a TV complete with everything from 3D to smart TV features bundled in a very pretty package. With every brand out there to prove that they’re the best, the new UA55D8000 has to show that it has the mettle to stand amongst best.
Design and Build Quality
Slim and sleek design
The smart TV component of the TV is really exhaustive. The TV comes with a bunch of preloaded apps and users can choose to install more from the app store. While there are media players today that offer similar widgets and features, one of the things missing is a proper web browser with tabbed browsing. The Samsung UA55D8000 has one, but browsing and making text entries can be a hassle. You are forced to use the remote as a primary input device and with no support for QWERTY, things can get hectic when it comes to entering long URLs. The delay in response also makes things worse.
While all of the features such as Vimeo and Picasa worked flawlessly on the TV, we faced some problems playing Youtube videos on it. There are a whole bunch of games and apps that you can spend hours playing around with. Google Maps for example is pretty functional and easily controlled using the remote. There is also a list of featured content that is displayed in a very interesting manner. The content on it is excellent and so is the quality.
