Alan, Hampshire Film and documentary lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Used with a Blu-ray 3d the picture is great. It is a very satisfying television on virtually every level.
Bad points:
Typical Samsung, it takes a while to understand how the remote etc works and the e-manual is ok but you have to refer to both the screen and remote settings at the same time as the remote which becomes confusing. In the end I downloaded from Samsung the e-manual and printed it out. I don't like e-manuals!

Internet connectivity is excellent. It looks great. Images/colors appear washed out but I've yet to fully calibrate the tv...I hope that improves things otherwise I will be disappointed with the image quality.

TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

A TV that shapes itself around you. The Samsung F8500’s quad-core is fast enough to juggle TV programmes, apps and social networking without missing a beat. A lush Full HD 1080p panel unlocks the finer details in every moment, while Active 3D playback makes everything more immersive.
Tired of hunting for something to watch? The Samsung F8500 features an intelligent recommendation system that notices what you like to watch and points you in the right direction. Voice and motion control even makes it as easy as waving a hand or asking a question to channel hop, browse and more.
All new ‘Magnum’ design means the flowing aluminium bezel blends seamlessly into the stand for a unified look that looks great in any space.
Key benefits:
Samsung S-Recommendation will change the way you watch TV. This technology learns what you like to watch and when – making it a breeze to track down similar programmes. All you have to do is ask!

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.

This TV is also Smart Evolution ready. This means that in future, your set can be boosted using a separate Smart Evolution Kit that delivers even more processing power.

“One design” styling ensures you see more of the picture and less of the TV frame as the super slim bezel merges seamlessly into the background. The TV’s silver frame and stand are crafted as a unified structure from a single piece of metal, also incorporating a naturally curved back and hideaway camera to maintain the stunning design aesthetics.

Smart Interaction lets you interact with your TV in a whole new way, through advanced Voice and Motion control. Simply talk to your TV to control it or using everyday language just ask it to find you something to watch for an amazing personalised TV experience. New two handed gestures recognise natural movements enabling you to zoom in and out and rotate images, making the sharing of your latest holiday pictures easy and fun.

Micro Dimming Ultimate technology in the F8500 precisely controls colour, contrast and detail levels within sub sections of each image to provide best in class picture quality, no matter what source is connected to the TV.

1000Hz CMR (Clear Motion Rate) gives you supreme clarity of motion, sharpness and contrast for optimum picture quality.

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

The retractable 5MP camera can be concealed when you’re watching TV but is 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.

Bring a new dimension to movies and games with cutting-edge 3D. Samsung’s Active 3D technology delivers smooth performance and crystal-clear Full HD images to get you right into the action. Special technology also converts 2D to 3D, so your old favourites won’t be left out.
