"It's a pleasure to report the UE55S8000 is quite outstanding on picture quality."
"Samsung sure knows what sells. If the startling design of its top-tier TVs doesn’t grab your attention hard, then their pictures certainly will. The Samsung UE55ES8000 ships with its pictures eye-wateringly vivid, with brightness, colour and contrast settings all cranked way up high... The result is an image that stands out like no other, hitting you hard with a visceral mixture of dynamism, sharpness and almost scarily intense colours."
"As you'd expect, the Samsung's picture quality is outstanding right across the board. Bright, detailed and stable, the 3D image is the best we've seen from TV so far, and high-def pictures (Blu-ray, Freesat or Freeview HD) are impressive too. It's particularly good at dealing with tricky motion, serves up strong contrasts, and its details levels are sky-high."
*Since 2010 for TV products. Reviews illustrated featured either online or in print from March 2012.
