Samsung UN65C8000 Review: 65” LED LCD HDTV

Up for Review: Samsung UN65C8000 LED LCD TV. With the competition for the top spot in HDTV market getting tougher, Samsung has released its most innovative models of this year. This particular model has almost similar features as the 9000 series except for the touch screen remote. 3D capability is intact together with all the sophisticated features which are the highlights of this year’s models. Watching 3D content on a 65-inch screen is surely going to be impressive. The glasses that are a necessity may prove to be an impediment and it will take some time to get used to watching TV with special glasses on.

There are no two opinions about the good looks of the TV. Samsung has made sure that everyone will be impressed by the thinness of the LED backlit panel. And to add to this, is the Touch of Color design with the “mystic earth” type of metallic bezel. The TV almost becomes an object of art to help liven up the décor of your room. But although the LED backlighting may help in giving a slim look to the TV, it is also responsible for uneven backlighting which may have a bearing on the images watched in a dark room. But hopefully, this problem will not be a big one and you will have a pretty good view under proper lighting conditions.

Samsung UN65C8000 Features and Specifications Review:

  • 3D Ready HDTV
  • 65″ Screen
  • 240Hz Motion Plus display for fast screen refresh rates
  • LED Edge Lighting Technology
  • 1080p screen resolution
  • 3D Processing Engine for 2D to 3D on the fly video up conversion
  • Dimming technology for improved black levels
  • Slim and elegant metallic design featuring Touch Of Color(TM)
  • Internet ready, featuring Internet@TV
  • Compatibility with multiple 3D Standards
  • Energy Star 4.0 – Improved energy efficiency thanks to LED Technology

The refresh rate of this TV is a promising 240 Hz which is ideal for viewing the 3D content. The special glasses used to watch 3D will make the frame rate 120 Hz for each eye which is what is needed for a smooth transition of the images for the perceiver. The refresh rate is also good to watch a judder free movie filmed in 24 frames per second. The synchronization is perfect and so you can enjoy smooth images. And this high refresh rate is of course best for watching high action content like sports. There is no blurring and the TV also steers clear of the ghosting issue.

Samsung provides internet access in this TV too. Although Samsung had already introduced this feature in the models last year, it was not much of a success. With the technology getting better and with access to more interesting content, it can be expected that the response will be better this year. Samsung has also kept the Energy Star requirements in mind and makes sure that the TV uses very less energy for functioning. In fact, there is no reason why you should not opt for this TV when you have so many features at your finger tips. It will be a proud addition to your home. gives Samsung UN65C8000 4/5 stars!
