The first thing to consider when purchasing this Set is the Price. I don't believe the ES8000 Models is in any significantly way better than the es7000 model, therefore I advise you choose the ES7000 model if you want one of Samsung's top 2012 TV. The ES7000 is almost identical with the exception of the Micro dimming mode which is supposedly more advanced in the 8000 model. The only other difference i could find is the stand, it's the same panel, same LCD, led Edge lit technology. You will most likely hardly notice any difference, as I've seen both models.

Its ultra clear panel (as I believe it's called) is only on the 7000/8000 models & as the name suggests, it is indeed very clear in comparison to other sets I saw in the shops. Picture quality is extremely good, particularly with HD content on disk/usb/usbhdd/network/etc. Other digital files or streamed online via netflix/lovefilm is also quite impressive. Standard definition picture works well. You will notice the picture is bright & crisp. The TV is overloaded with settings, users will generally get themselves lost for the first couple of weeks until you get the hang of menus and adjust the presets to suit. You will find most default settings are too high so they will need to be fine tuned. Once adjusted, you can quickly access the presets to suit your programmes. You will probably have read about the lighting issues, there are some bright spots & slightly bluish edges when the screen in black & in very low light conditions. It isn't particularly something that has bothered me much, & can't normally be seen unless in very low light.

3D as I've heard is fantastic, so far I've seen 1 or 2 videos were cool but otherwise 3d gives me a headache so I'm not bothering with that.

Bought this TV a couple of weeks ago (not from Amazon). Took me a while to set up because I got a bundle with a Samsung Blu-Ray and speaker set, and there were a lot of cables to get sorted (I eventually settled on using an optical output cable from the TV to my speakers).

Once I'd got it all cabled up and set up I have to say this TV is STUNNING! Leaving aside the size (which starts off massive, but over time becomes normal) the picture quality is incredible. It is worth spending some time customising the colours and contrast/brightness to the way you like it - search the web and find the settings recommended by the serious TV watchers. The most realistic picture is in Movie mode.

Plug this in to a Blu-Ray source and a separate speaker system and this is true home cinema.

3D is OK but a bit of a gimmick so we don't bother with it.

Voice control is fun, especially when the TV sometimes decides to turn itself on when you are singing! Motion control is a bit inaccurate, so once again we haven't bothered with that much.

What is really great is the speed at which it reads video files from a USB stick, and the TV native support for multiple video formats including Matrushka files.

Overall this is the best TV we have ever owned, and now I watch TV programmes I'm not even bothered about, just so I can watch the TV!

If you get a massive bonus and want to treat yourself - get one of these now!

Verified Purchase
Switched on my ES8000, wow! brilliant & beutifull for 20mins. Then a green line from top to bottom, oh no, anything bar that as I new there was a major pixel fault. It took some effort to unpack read all the instructions and set it up as i am 74. i really could not face repacking and returning it as it was a huge size. I looked up help, found a phone No. for Samsung, rang them, told them the fault and they said it could be repaired on site, they would order a nw part and be in touch ,they rang a week later and the engineers would come and repair it. My thoughts were how do you repair a line on the screen (55") perhaps a line eraser. They arrived with a brand new screen, brought there equipment (2 Men) one worked on 1 side the 2nd man on the other, all done and set up in less than 45 Mins. Well done Samsung, good service and a good job done. I love this TV.

I purchased the TV after seeing the excellent reviews it had received around the internet and it certainly lives up to its reputation.

The picture quality is absolutely outstanding, giving a crisp and clear HD picture. So far I've played files from USB, the built in Netflix application and the built in BBC iPlayer application. In every case the television has performed perfectly with no issues.

The Smart Touch Remote that came in the box is quite cool, although I find that using it for text entry is slower than using the ordinary remote.

Overall this is a brilliant TV that I would absolutely recommend to anyone.
