Samsung's microdimming F8000 LED Video Transcript
Hi. I'm Ty Pendlebury from CNET and we're here at CES 2013 with Samsung's top end television. It's going to be available in March 2013 in three different models, the 46, 55 and the 65. We don't know the pricing is yet but it does have a lot of top end features as well as a very classic sort of design. What you got is a new Smart TV engine which includes now a programmed guide for the first time. What you have is an S recommendation engine which pops up at the bottom of your screen and integrates with your cable box and shows you what's playing at the time. Of course this is also compatible with the new evolution kit which is just been announced and that will presumably be announced next year as well. What this does have is an upgraded picture engine on previous years. What you get is microdimming which wasn't a feature of last year's TVs. So what it can do is turn off areas of the picture at once, very very micro areas of the screen and you get much better according to Samsung black levels as a result. So you can actually get very high contrasting images without being detrimental to the dark or the light areas at a time as well as the 3D engine is being upgraded with up to 30% increase in light levels when you're using the active glasses. So this TV will be available in 4 sizes, 46, 55 60 and 65. There are rumors of 75-inch but that's yet to be confirmed. So that's the Samsung F8000 TV which will be available this year for prices as yet to be announced. This is Ty Pendlebury for cnet.com.
With picture quality that's nearly the equal of the tough competition, as well as best-in-class design and features, the Samsung PND8000 makes a strong case the best overall plasma TV of 2011.
The Samsung UND8000 TV delivers best-in-class looks and features, but its picture quality--thanks to uneven screen uniformity--is ultimately a step backward from many less expensive models.
Samsung's PNC8000 series plasma TV produces one of the highest-quality pictures we've tested this year in both 2D and 3D modes, yet costs less than its direct competition.
At CES 2010, Brian Tong checks out Samsung's Internet-enabled 8000 series plasma television.
Its 3D is still a work in progress and its 2D picture quality comes up short of the best available, but the high-end Samsung UNC8000 series still offers superb features, solid performance, and unique style.
The KN55F9500 Real OLED TV includes a brace of features and promises vivid RGB color quality.
Although it hits plenty of high points, the Samsung UNES8000 LED TV cannot ultimately justify its high price.
The expensive Samsung PNE8000 series comes through with stellar picture quality, but its main appeal is to people who crave the latest gadgetry in their plasma TV.
The expensive, stylish Samsung UNB8000 series has its share of picture quality drawbacks, but a firmware update helps, and the thin frames are worth serious bragging rights.
At CES 2013 in Las Vegas, Samsung showed off its new lineup of HDTVs, including its F8000 series LED televisions and both an 85-inch and 110-inch 4K Ultra HD TV.
