Samsung Series 8 LED TV (preview)
We look at the D8000, Samsung's Series 8 LED TV from CES 2011
- Super-thin bezel, amazing styling
- It's probably going to be expensive...
We're very keen to take a look at Samsung's newest Series 8 LED television when it hits Australian shores. With styling that's a mix of 2010's Series 7 and Series 9 LED sets, it has LED edge-lighting hidden behind its super-thin bezels as well as 3D processing that automatically detects the content type.
At CES 2011, Samsung threw the covers off over 40 new LCD, LED and plasma TVs. The Samsung Series 8 LED TV is the flagship model in the new line-up, and it's definitely impressive. It's got a bezel that's barely 5mm thick, with a glossy chrome finish and the same four-legged stand we saw on the 2010 Samsung Series 7 LED TV.
All the usual high-end bells and whistles are built in — it has a 200Hz refresh rate, 3D processing with 3D glasses that connect via Bluetooth, and a touchscreen remote control. If you're lazy, you can even use an iPhone or Android phone to control the television. Built-in Wi-Fi means the Samsung Series 8 LED TV can connect to your wireless network and access Samsung's Smart Hub service, which includes a Web browser, movies, downloadable applications and a search function.
We don't have any details about Australian launch dates and pricing for the Samsung Series 8 LED TV, but we're looking forward to putting one through its paces in our Test Centre.

PCW Evaluation Team
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
