Colin, Robin hoods bay Multi-purpose viewer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
. I am deaf in one ear ,but the sound quality was noticeably better than my old set,but I decided to buy a sound bar to enhance the sound a bit more. It worked a dream after a slight problem in setting it up.....
Bad points:
The instructions for connecting the sound bar I found a bit misleading ,I had bought the required optical cable and tried to connect it to the DVD player to the sound bar but wrong fitting,I then tried to connect the TV to the sound bar using the audio cable ,wrong fitting, so I eventually connected the TV to soundbar using the optic cable and it worked .

TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Combining the latest Smart TV features and industry-leading interactive voice and motion controls, outstanding Full HD 3D picture quality and innovative audio, the Samsung 40F8000 Smart 3D 40" LED TV is undeniably the ultimate 21st-Century home entertainment hub.

Discover more of the TV you love

Samsung’s new S Recommendation technology with voice interaction suggests what’s new to watch based on your viewing history, it intelligently learns your preferences and the more TV you watch the smarter it gets. All you need to do is ask the TV to find you something to watch using natural language and it will instantly search Live TV, video on demand and apps to find suitable content matching your request.

Samsung’s Smart Hub provides immediate access to all your favourite shows via the ON TV Screen and cleverly organises and manages your content into five panels – On TV; Movies & TV Shows; Photos, Videos & Music; Social and Apps. The intuitive interface uses easily recognisable thumbnails for instant previews to help you choose.

Future ready technology

Samsung’s Smart Evolution technology enables you to completely upgrade your TV in line with new technologies in terms performance, features and content keeping your TV bang up to date for a fraction of the cost of a new TV!

Full HD picture

The Samsung F8000’s 1920 × 1080p Full HD LED display delivers breathtakingly lifelike images time after time, even for fast-moving sports or action movies. New Intelligent Viewing technology ensures that irrelevant of the source, or type of content you’re watching images are automatically optimised so they appear clear and crisp. Web Clear View simultaneously optimises video and text content from the internet providing vivid images and sharper text. Micro Dimming Ultimate technology controls colour, contrast and detail levels within all image subsections for outstanding picture quality from all connected sources. Authentic skin tones and sharp details provide unequalled realism, while deeper blacks bring dark scenes to life.

An amazing 1000 Hz CMR (Clear Motion Rate) gives you supreme clarity of motion, sharpness and contrast, concurrently calculating frame refresh rate, image processor speed and backlight technology for the optimum picture quality.

Voice and motion control for total TV interactivity

With the Samsung F-8000 TV’s market-leading 2nd-generation voice and gesture control, you can play games and control the TV in a whole new way. Use motion control to take charge without pushing a button.

Switch channels and volume level, swipe though Smart hub panels and seize content as with any smart mobile device. New two-handed gestures recognise natural movements to enable image zooming and rotation, making it easier and more fun to share photos.

Voice control offers all-new interaction using straightforward natural language via the Smart Touch Remote. Control the TV, run apps or combine it with S Recommendation for a completely personalised experience – ask for something to watch and receive recommendations based on actors, titles or genres!

Beautiful TV design

Continuing Samsung’s reputation of innovative design, the next-generation once again delivers unique design combining a super slim , sleek silver edge and black bezel to make the Samsung UE40 F8000 Full HD 3D LED TV look almost transparent – see more picture and less frame.

This minimalistic design is completed by a clean black finish, making it completely discreet yet totally compelling in spite of its large 40” size. The clean, efficient stand design allows you to fit a soundbar in front of the TV for both an eye-catching arrangement in your lounge and clever sound positioning.

Maintaining a clean facade, the retractable 5 MP digital camera is concealed when you’re watching TV but easily accessible for high-quality, large-scale Skype chats. Share a smile with loved ones and create a personalised smart hub profile for rapid face recognition access.

Quad-core Smart TV

A powerful quad-core processor enables much faster access to Smart TV functions, higher-quality video streaming and true multitasking capabilities.

Cutting-edge 3D TV

The Active 3D Hyper Real Engine lets you discover an exhilarating world of revolutionary entertainment, amazing picture quality, stunning depth and vivid colours opening up a world of totally immersive 3D possibilities.

Put on the lightweight 3D glasses to engross yourself in the drama from all angles – without compromising on superior 2D High Definition picture quality.

Twin tuners for more choice

Using dual tuners, the 40” Samsung UE40 F8000 LED TV lets you watch either two Freeview or two Freesat Channels at the same time. Stop family debates over what to watch by watching two different channels using the picture in picture function, or watch one programme on the TV and another on a tablet – or record onto a USB stick or hard drive using the second tuner. This highly practical development eliminates the need for a PVR – all you need is a hard drive.

Freeview HD is a built-in free to air digital service with free access to over 50 standard definition TV channels and 4 HD channels (including ITV HD, BBC One HD, BBC HD and 4 HD) – there’s always something to watch!

Also free to air, Freesat expands your choices with over 100 national and regional standard definition TV channels, including catch-up and HD channels (including ITV HD, BBC One HD, BBC HD and 4 HD). A strong signal is achieved via a separately-purchased connected satellite dish.

Surrounded by sound

Four speakers pair with Dolby Digital Plus / Pulse, DTS Studio Sound and DTS Premium Audio 5.1 for 40 W of jaw-dropping, cinematic sound that will put you in the centre of the action.

Two 10 W speakers unite with two 10 W subwoofers to send chills up your spine as studio-quality soundtracks resound and a wide sonic landscape expands around you.

And if you need more volume, enjoy the convenience of wireless connectivity with Samsung’s range of compatible Soundbar and Docking solutions through SOUNDSHARE which easily synchronises your TV via Bluetooth to your chosen device.

And that’s not all…

Built-in WiFi and Ethernet permit you to go online in comfort with the full web browser, update your Facebook and Twitter pages or access nearby DLNA Samsung compatible mobile devices. Enjoy swift internet and app response times, simultaneous Skype calls and viewing, and during-TV app usage. The Samsung App Store holds all the TV apps you’ll ever need.

Smart View turns your Samsung-compatible smartphone or tablet into a second TV screen via your home network. Take programmes with you on your device or watch a different channel to the main TV by selecting a different source in the app.

Allshare lets you stream and share music, photos, movies and other multimedia directly to your TV. It’s equipped with Cloud technology, so you can upload content to a central web storage account to access anywhere.
