Samsung UN60F8000 60-Inch 1080p 240Hz 3D Ultra Slim Smart LED HDTV

October 26, 2013

in 60 - 69 LED TV sets

If you’re still in 2013/2014, this is the ULTIMATUM for a 60″ 3D LED TV. That doesn’t necessarily mean you should buy it. However, it’s at least worth going through the specs to learn what exists in today’s world. If you have the cash, we highly encourage you to take advantage of the $900 price cut.

Is this the BEST 60″ LED TV? This is the MOST high-end 60″ LED TV currently available from Samsung. However, there are also other feature-rich, yet much cheaper 3D LED TVs such as this Samsung and this Sharp Aquos 3D LED TVs.
Is this HDTV recommended or NOT? Yes recommended, if you’ve got the extra 1000 bucks. It’s got some high-end features like a quad-core processor, Micro Dimming Ultimate etc. If you can be happy with a dual-core processor and Micro Dimming (standard), you can save that ~$1000 by opting for this Samsung

Special Remarks Highly recommended. Probably the BEST picture quality. Has almost everything you can expect from a HDTV of 2013/2014.
Any negatives This uses Active 3D technology. Now that’s not a bad thing, however, Active 3D glasses are more expensive compared to passive 3D glasses. But then again, if you won’t need extra 3D glasses (2 pairs included), or you don’t mind the extra expense of the active 3D glasses, this is a highly recommended TV set for 2D watching, which is what most of us do 99% of the time.Also, this is pricey! But if you’re willing to pay that amount of $$, the Samsung UN60F8000 is well worth every cent! If you’d rather settle for something slightly less feature-rich (like dual-core processor instead of quad-core; no built-in camera etc.), check out this Samsung
