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.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications
I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)
It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.
I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
