Pros - Ultra-slim bezel featuring a virtually edgeless design
Cons - Edge-lit - Screen uniformity - Smart TV - No USB3.0 - Manufacturer warranty should be more than 1 year
Summary This model is now discontinued and has been replaced by UN46F8000 Buyer beware, I strongly suggest to purchase an extended warranty with these Samsung. I bought the UN55ES8000 and the first one was defective, my second UN55ES8000 had three motherboard failures in less than two months. Samsung technical support are not the fastest...
Samsung's UN46ES8000 is easily one of 2012's most interesting TVs. It's a work of audio/video art, with a thin, virtually edgeless panel design supported by a uniquely graceful stand. Picture quality is spectacular, thanks to some of Samsung's most advanced technologies. And the straight-from-science-fiction user controls are generating the biggest buzz of all. Get a taste of the future — today.
Smart Interaction: Welcome to the new era of Smart TV
While almost everything else about TVs has improved radically in recent years, we've still been stuck with the same old remote to control them. Not anymore. Samsung's Smart Interaction technologies go beyond buttons, providing control options that are engaging and fun.
Voice Control: Tell your TV what you want
Say "Hi, TV" to turn on the UN46ES8000's voice control. You can then tell the TV to change the channel or adjust the volume. To go online, simply say "web browser." This might sound a little silly, but when you try it, it's actually pretty cool.
Gesture Control: Your hand is now the remote
The camera that's built into the top of the UN46ES8000 makes it possible to control the TV with hand gestures. Raise or lower the volume with a wave of your hand. Navigate menus by using hand movements to control an on-screen cursor. To select an item or app just close your hand.
Face Recognition: Skype video calls, auto log-in, and more
The UN46ES8000 is among the first to provide a great experience with Skype® video calls. The top-mounted camera and speakerphone offer bright, detailed images and clear sound. Samsung's face recognition feature can automatically log you in to the TV's Smart Hub home screen without a password or ID.
A dual-core processor delivers faster web browsing
Web access on your TV takes a big leap forward with this model. A dual-core processor enables faster web browsing and multitasking — you can download an app while you're using another one. Samsung provides practical, easy ways to enjoy online entertainment. Whether your connection is wired or wireless, you can surf the web while you watch movies and TV shows, and enjoy TV while you chat with friends and family online.
There are built-in apps for accessing video services like Netflix®, Hulu Plus™, and YouTube™, and you can download new Samsung apps, all custom built to work on your TV. Samsung's new Signature Services include things like personalized movie and show recommendations, and the ability to set up and maintain a fitness routine.
3D fun, straight out of the box — 4 pairs of 3D glasses are included
The UN46ES8000 uses Samsung's latest Full HD active 3D technology to deliver spellbinding visuals with your favorite 3D movie titles. Just slip on a pair of the included 3D glasses to enjoy a deeper view, and not just with 3D video sources — switch on the TV's 2D-to-3D conversion feature for added depth with regular 2D video. And even if you're not interested in 3D this set is still worth considering. Its advanced 3D-capable screen produces some of the most beautifully vivid 2D images you'll find anywhere.
