New for 2011, the Samsung LED D8000 series 3D TV comes in a 0.2″ brushed metal bezel, a fine line that subtly frames the rich content on the screen and enhances the TV's light form factor. The D8000 Series continues the minimalist style of the C8000 Series and uses an improved Quad Stand to ensure ultimate harmony between the TV and its environment.
The reduction in bezel size means consumers can enjoy a larger viewing screen and wider viewing angle without having to increase the physical size of their TVs, and makes using social applications like Skype and YouTube, browsing the Web, sharing content and playing games that much more inclusive.
With a 240Hz refresh rate, 2 millisecond motion picture response time (MPRT) and improved LED backlight scanning, this CES Innovation Award honoree offers true-to-life 2D, 3D and HD images with outstanding clarity. In addition to the Ultra Clear Panel, the TV is the first to offer Micro Dimming Plus technologies to provide the richest, most lifelike pictures with deep blacks and pure whites.
The D8000 Series comes with Samsung's new 3D glasses and Samsung's innovative Touch Control that can also stream TV programs to its built-in 3″ LCD screen, almost like a second TV, even while a Blu-ray disc is being played on the TV.
The D8000 has a built-in Wi-Fi connection and many convenient ways to manage and display content through Samsung's Smart Hub portal. The set can connect to other devices using DLNA or Samsung's patented One Foot Connection technology.
