Executive Overview

The Samsung UN55C8000 is one of four 3D-capable LED TVs (UN40, UN46, UN 55, UN65) released in 2010. They each feature a built-in 3D processor and emitter that enable compatibility with multiple 3D standards. The 55” UN55C8000 sits right underneath its larger counterpart, the 65” UN65C8000. Both units utilize a temporary design with LED edge lighting. More importantly, they host Samsung’s recently expanded [email protected] service, which now allows users to stream content from Blockbuster, Netflix, USA Today, and VUDU video on demand. Plus users can access other Internet applications/services like Twitter, Pica, AccuWeather, and Pandora either by the integrated Ethernet connection or via an optional WiFi adapter.
