Samsung UN55B8000 – This is the third in a series of reviews based on the new range of LED televisions recently released by Samsung. Like I mentioned in the two previous reviews, LED technology allows flat screen televisions to save up to 40% on their electricity consumption. There has been a large backlash from environmental groups at the increased use of LCD and plasma televisions, because in many cases they use more electricity than the old cathode ray type televisions we used in the past. LED technology hopes to redress this balance and is likely to become the de facto screen technology for manufacturers in the years to come.

Samsung UN55B8000 – 55 inches of Perfect Picture Quality?

The UN55B8000 shares a number of features with its smaller cousins – the UN46B6000 and UN46B8000, what sets it apart is its huge screen. LED technology already adds to the viewing experience, but to see this applied to a larger screen, really highlights how much better these LED screens appear.

The addition of Samsung’s picture technology – Auto Motion Plus 240Hz, also helps to enhance this experience by analyzing every frame and adjusting it if there is the appearance of blur. This makes sports programming come to life – not quite as good as actually being inside the stadium, but not far off!

The UN55B8000 is also great for gamers. Its huge, crisp, color enhanced LED screen brings gaming to life and enhances the experience. The addition of 4 HDMI ports means that there is no shortage of ways to connect your games console or other peripherals Samsung UN55B8000.

If you want an affordable LCD TV, I can personally recommend the Samsung LN52A750 52″ LCD TV. After perusing through WAY too many reviews and looking at all the 52″ LCD TVs that matches my spending limit, I finally settled on the Samsung LN52A750.

Why this TV??

This TV’s picture quality is definitely crisp & clear. If you compare it to my first Philips plasma TV, this Samsung LCD totally kicks ass! Watching Blu Ray movies or playing XBox 360 video games on the Samsung LCD is a totally new experience! Everything looks more like real life. I imagine the astounding 50,000:1 high color contrast ratio really DOES make a difference.

My previous Philips plasma TV had some “ghosting effects” when I’m enjoying fast action movies or my favourite sports programs. Nothing annoys me more than watching basketball where the action appears “jerky”. Problem solved with the Samsung LN52A750 TV. The sportsmen move in a smooth motion and even the ball motion is smooth!

Even when I have a home theater sound system, I was pleasantly surprised that the sound from the TV’s speakers was definitely acceptable. Of course, it doesn’t compare with my 3 thousand dollar surround sound system:-) but it surely offers crisp high notes and also pretty punchy bass as well.

Another cool trick of this Samsung LCD TV is that it has a built-in card that has nifty things like cooking recipes, children’s games & more. Fine, you won’t select this TV just because of this extra feature but it’s a great addition. Not just that, you get the built-in “Infolink” system that takes the latest news, sports news and weather from real-time feeds. Very nifty…

Bad points? Well, I expect a 60″ LCD would fill up my living hall’s wall better. Heh heh. Seriously, though, I didn’t have problems with my Samsung LN52A750 TV and am happy with it.
