Excerpt:  The Samsung UE55D8000 LED-sidelit LCD TV represents the manufacturer’s current top-tier model for 2011, and indeed, is the first of the new batch of Samsung HDTVs that we’ve got our hands on for in-depth image quality assessment. Based on its positioni...

Excerpt:  At 55 inches in size, the UE55D8000 will dominate any sensibly sized living room, but that's not due to any excess heft. It's a sleek and slender 29.7mm deep and weighing just 18.6 Kg with the stand attached is relatively light in terms of TVs this s...

Good:  Attractive results in 2D and 3D, Accurate colours (deltaE: 2.4) and good contrast ratio (3200:1), Powerful Motion Rate 800 Hz mode, Backlit remote control, Low energy consumption: 112 W
Bad:  Glossy screen susceptible to reflections, Viewing angles too narrow, Remote is pretty basic, Crosstalk more visible than on plasma 3D TVs, Clouding on our test unit
Bottomline:  As well as an attractive new design and a perfect finish, the D8000 produces a great picture in both 2D and 3D. It's just a shame that some very pronounced clouding spoils things....

Good:  Eye-catching design, excellent high-def images, dynamic Full HD 3D, expansive Smart Hub content, Freeview HD and Freesat HD tuners
Bad:  Motion Plus picture processing introduces motion artefacts on its higher settings, no side-mounted USB or AV inputs will make life awkward
Bottomline:  The 55UED8000 is an outstanding TV. It offers the best 3D we’ve yet seen on a Samsung screen and image quality can be excellent. However, care needs to be taken with the brand’s Motion Plus picture processor, which can introduce video nasties if set to...

Good:  Superb picture quality, Amazing design, Great online functionality, Best 3D we've seen so far
Bad:  Most people won't be able to afford it
Bottomline:  The 55-inch UE55D8000 is another amazing 3D LED TV from Samsung. Those lucky souls who can afford to cough up £2,500 won't be disappointed....
