|About - Samsung UN55ES8000|
The Samsung UN55ES8000 is a 55-inch LCD HDTV with a native resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p). This TV has a 3D mode that requires the use of special glasses to see three-dimensional images. It has edge-mounted LED backlighting. That allows the panel to be extremely thin and also uses less energy than conventional fluorescent backlighting. Rather than the basic 60Hz, it has a faster 240Hz frame rate, a feature designed to reduce motion blur.
This model is Internet-enabled and can access online content, including streaming movie services. It has an Ethernet jack for connecting to your home network via a cable. This TV is also Wi-Fi-capable, so you can connect it to your home network wirelessly. Its DLNA certification enables you to view digital photos stored on a compatible computer, phone, or other mobile device also connected to your home network.
There are 5 HD-capable inputs: 4 HDMI and 1 component-video, which can also be used as composite-video. It also has 3 USB ports, which may allow you to plug in a thumb drive or memory card reader so you can play the stored photos, videos, and music on the TV.
The Samsung UN55ES8000 measures 29.9 inches high by 48.4 inches wide by 8.2 inches deep, including its base. The panel itself is 1.2 inches thick including any protrusions, and the screen has a glossy finish. The bezel framing the screen is gloss silver.
The warranty on this TV covers parts/labor for 12/12 months, respectively. Related models in this series include the UN46ES8000; UN60ES8000; UN65ES8000; UN75ES8000.
