Samsung UN55C8000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz 3D LED HDTV Review

  Samsung has always been a leading innovator when it comes to televisions. From technologically advanced TV sets to simple ones, it has always been at the forefront of the industry. Every time the words high def TV or LCD is mentioned Samsung is the first name that comes to mind. It only goes to show how popular the brand is. To me, it epitomizes crystal clear display.

It has paved the way for its competitors. Check the Samsung UN55C8000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz 3D LED HDTV. It has garnered several awards since it was launched. It is actually included in the list of top rated HDTVs in the year 2010. Be forewarned though that just like any other TV it has its good points and bad ones, or should I say areas that still need improvement.

It's sleek design and shiny, elegant black color is something fashionistas will approve of and love. It will easily fit in any room. Your room won't look cluttered or overcrowded after you set it up. More space for your aesthetic pursuits.

The TV's visual performance is above average. The vibrant colors will surely make your screen look alive. Blues are blue, reds are red, and colors are exactly how they look in real life. It's like watching the real thing and not just an image on your screen.

Deep black performance has always been the bane of HDTVs. Sadly this TV is not an exception to that. When this is impaired the dark colors will become brighter and it will affect the overall color contrast. You will surely notice that something is amiss with the display. Designers are yet to find a permanent fix for this. So consumers will just have to put up with this for the meantime.

It has auto dim capacity which unfortunately cannot be disabled. It is a feature which you will just have to live with. This is something that's negligible. I'm sure when you start using the TV you'll barely notice this. As I've mentioned earlier this TV is not yet perfect, there are still some aspects of the design that needs improvement, but to be fair to the designers though they did a pretty good job. Now let's focus our attention back to what's great with this TV.

It supports format that enables you to play high definition shows. This is essential because more and more devices are now veered towards high def. More and more customers are replacing their current TV sets. There will come a time when all networks will broadcast nothing but high def shows. If you still don't have a high def TV set by then that could be a problem.

This TV can convert 2D images to 3D however the image quality is not that good. All you need to do is purchase 3D glasses and 3D players which are available in local stores and you can now complete you 3D experience. More and more movies are also now in 3D. Think Shrek and Avatar. It has a 240Hz refresh rate which lessens blurry images which especially important when you're playing games or when you're viewing fast paced action.

This has two HDMI ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, one VGA output and one digital audio output. You can connect your digital camera, thumb drives and flash drives. You can also connect the TV to your PC thru the VGA port. Aside from watching your favorite shows you can also music, videos and pictures. You can also use Wi-Fi by connecting thru the Ethernet port, however, you need to use an additional device called a USB dongle and connect it to one of the USB ports to use the Wi-Fi feature.
