How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Samsung gets just about everything right with its F8000 series, with what critics are calling the best picture quality available on any LCD TV, along with the best smart TV system you'll find anywhere. TelevisionInfo.com calls it "simply a great television" that "produces an excellent picture." HDTV Test calls it "the best LED-driven LCD TV we’ve seen thus far as far as image quality is concerned." The smart TV features boast an intuitive interface and speedy performance, thanks to the TV's advanced processor. TelevisionInfo calls the F8000's smart system "the best we've used." If the F8000 has one downside, it's its premium price. As HDTV Test puts it, "we’re left wondering how much of this goodness is going to filter down to more affordable Samsung LED TVs."
