My new Samsung UN55es8000 looks fabulous and has amazing picture quality. What stands out is its sharpness, vibrant colors and very good black levels. I really don't think additional calibration is needed to adjust the picture settings. Let me say a few words about the sound of this TV; due to the slim profile of this unit and small speakers, it has limitations on sound quality. If you are watching the news, the sound is very good. When watching movies the sound is just "OK" (you can improve the sound if you adjust an equalizer setting). If you are an audiophile or movie lover, a sound bar with a wireless subwoofer or home theater system have to be added. My family watching sport events in HD or movies on NETFLIX - super HD with unbelievable picture quality. I feel that UN55es8000 or any of the other sizes of the 8000 series TV sets are going to be a great success for Samsung.

Product picture is great, but glare off of the screen takes time to get use to. Set and other equipment purchased are great, but the delivery service was not.

This Samsung actually has a better 3D picture than the movie theaters. It will literally make your eyes pop. When not in 3D mode the 2D picture is so vibrant and saturated it makes old movies I have seen seem new and alive, in particular european movies which now seem like travel logs in addition to dramas. For sure this is the best buy I made in 2012. The bells and whistles include voice activation and hand/arm activation which we do not use that much because frankly, we are all looking for the fastest way to get the picture going. Sports in 3D are also outstanding. Watch out Super Bowl. Congrats Samsung for a job well done

The good: - Simply the best TV out there. - Truly functional Apps make this so much more than a TV. Hulu+, Netflix, (rarely do I watch cable anymore) Skype, Camera, You Tube, nice selection of apps. - 3D is crazy good, thought i would never sit wearing a pair of those glasses but I will. - Picture is incredible. - Wi-Fi was easy set up. - So thin it folds up on the wall like a picture. If this TV is in your price range buy it. The bad: -Wired networking only worked for a short while, fortunately Wi-fi works perfectly so even better, on less wire. - Motion & voice control are just novelties (they do work and will impress your friends) but you will use the remotes - Manual power switch on back is cumbersome to switch and navigate. needs a simple switch you can walk by and power off. - 3D glasses a bit flimsy

the image is perfect. The screen uniformity is phenomenal. Blacks are deep black. I see no evidence of flashlighting or light creep. After 100 hours of use --Calibrate with the Disney WOW DVD -- a tutorial disc that helps you to set up your HD system to its maximum potential. It helps you calibrate the sound and the picture, and does so with easy step-by-step guides. --Best Blu-ray Movies, Yahoo News--this makes a big difference in all around picture quality. Calibration is easy and can always be reset if you want to start over again. The expansion pack that this TV 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.
