Samsung UN55B8000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz LED HDTV

The Samsung 55-inch 1080p 240 Hz LED HDTV

I'm pissed. I know that's no way to begin a hub but I am. Not long ago I bought a Samsung HDTV. About 3 years ago this HDTV was the top of the line HDTV out there. It was Samsung's newest technology at the time. You remember the commercial. The commercial with the little girl in it saying, " It's the mirrors." I thought that was the coolest and I was totally sold on it. So when the opportunity arrived for me to go and get a HDTV, that's the one that I bought.

At the time you could choose between three different technologies. You could buy a plasma. you could buy a LCD. Or you could buy what I got, a DLP. It was only 3 years ago. The DLP was the new kid on the block. It had none of the problems that were associated with the plasma. It wasn't as expensive as the LCD. And if you had a problem with the picture, all you had to do was change the bulb. Now , you NEVER hear about the DLP anymore. It's all about the plasma, the LCD or the new NEW kid on the block, the LED.

The Samsung UN55B8000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz LED HDTV is a result of this LED technology. I have to say that after seeing it in the store. I was very impressed. (The pictures that they show you on the commercial are not enough, you should go see it in the store!) The picture is incredible, to say the least. The colors are vibrant, and the darks are well...dark. This is a true work of art over my old DLP. Matter of fact, they don't even make my old DLP technology anymore. In the space of 2 years, my DLP has become obsolete.

If you are looking for a HDTV to buy for Christmas , but have no idea which one, then this is the one for you. Not only does it have a crisp and beautiful picture, it also has Samsung's Internet@TV.

This Tv also boasts as one of the slimmest HDTVs out there. It is only 1.2 inches thick! I don't know about you, but compared to my old TV, this TV is about 22 inches thinner! With this small thickness comes all type of possibilities of use. you could go the old fashioned route and buy a TV stand or you can hang it on the wall...with no problem. the TV weighs a measly 39.7 pounds! This TV is ULTRA light compared to my daughter's old 36-inch tube TV, it's about 100 pounds!

So do yourself a favor, check out the Samsung UN55B8000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz LED HDTV. It has everything that you are looking for, plus some things that you wouldn't expect!

      The whole family and I love our new Samsung; I picked up this same model, and the picture is incredible. I work at DISH, and one of my friends there has this same HD set, and after watching it at his house, I had to have one for myself. Last month I upgraded my family to the DISH Hopper, which gives us full HD and full DVR access to four different TVs. We only had 3 at the time of the install, and this Sammy fills that 4th spot to perfection. Best of all, with our Hopper hooked to all four HDTVs, everyone can watch their shows in HD, and no one has to miss a program because of a DVR timer conflict.
