REVIEW - 3/4/13
By – Howie
I’ve had the TV for about a week now. based on research and experience i would say the majority of the one or two star negative reviews here are from 65inch models, please refer to “Additional Comment” below. for me this was an upgrade exchange from ES6500 which had the infamous green halo trail. i got the 60ES8000. overall i would say the TV is great for its current street price.
1. strong black level performance due to Micro Dimming. beautiful beautiful black. one of the best blacks i’ve seen for LCD/LED sets.
2. best design esthetics. no need to elaborate more. it speaks for itself.
3. best color representation right out of the box without too much tinckering. but of course if you’re one of those who is hardcore about calibrating, you’ll end up calibrating it anyway. but i am not that anal, although having work in the motion picture VFX industry, i do have a pretty trained eye and picky about quality. the set is pretty accurate and true right out of the box.
4. slightly better viewing angle than other edge lit LED sets.
5. Super Bright, and Super awesome contrast ratio. it even made my last ES6500 looked bad.
6. Dynamic contrast preserves over 95% of details even in medium setting, thanks to its 500 sub region micro dimming capability. i tested it with color and gamma palettes, even in medium setting, the color information is still preserved. unless you go all the way into HIGH, which starts to crush some shadows.
7. minimal to none clouding/flash lighting issues. with micro dimming on, it’s completely none issue.

If you going to upgrade your TV then do it right and get this one! I get offers in my email every day from retailers offering me cheap TV’s and that’s what they are! Sure they will do 1080p but there is so much more to a TV that that! This is the first time I have ever bought a piece of technology and seen the price go up! I bought this TV about two weeks ago and the price has gone up $800!
I am still learning the features of this TV. The other day I was watching golf on CBS using an over-the-air HD antenna. I turned on the 3D feature and couldn’t believe I was able to watch Tiger Woods in 3D.
I will say that when watching anything in 3D, bigger is better, I am so glad we got the 65″ screen.
The TV remotes will also operate my SONY BD player.It has a web browser and I am waiting for the wireless keyboard to arrive so I don’t have to hunt and peck the onscreen keyboard with the remote.I can pull pictures, video and music using the allshare app. off other devices on my network and display them on the TV.
Price as New:$3,999.00
