Samsung Full HD 3D Smart TV has been chosen as the No.1 product for its product superiority by one after another consumer groups across Europe, well known for their objective reviews and public confidence.
Which?—the largest and most trusted consumer group in the UK, printing more than 550,000 copies of Which? Magazine— posted the review results of 2011 TV models conducted between April and May.
Among 8 TV models that the group tested, Samsung 55-inch D8000 and 46-inch D7000 received 76 and 75 scores respectively—an overwhelming No.1 and No.2, beating competitors that marked only 60s scores.
The magazine highly praised Samsung TV for faultless picture quality, stunning 3D, super lightweight 3D glasses, brilliantly versatile smart TV options, exceptionally low use of power and a cinch to use, and added “the D8000 looks fantastic.”
Which? also went on to say that the D8000 has never let it down, highlighting “remarkable depth, silky-smooth motion and vibrant color on both Blu-ray and Freeview HD picture simply blew our expert viewing panel away.”
In addition, it noted that 3D TV married sharpness, crisp detail and a stunning 3D effect and 3D glasses were lightweight and comfortable—the most significant improvement of all. It also said “Smart TV is impressive, and a cinch to navigate, apps are responsive and it is easy to download more from its app store.”
A French consumer union, UFC (Union Federale des Consommateurs), highly commended Samsung TV’s top-class quality as well in its official consumer guide magazine, Que Choisir.
The French magazine conducted reviews on 2011 new TV models sized 32 to 46 inches. Among 12 models, Samsung’s 40-inch 3D LED Smart TV D8000 earned 15.0 scores in total, ranked first. This is also top among 88 models when 2010 models included.
The 46-inch TV of the same model received 14.5, ranked second.
Que Choisir gave the highest points to picture quality, 3D function, ease of use and multimedia support via a connected network, and chose the 40-inch D8000 as “Best Choice (Meilleur choix).”
540,000 copies of Que Choisir magazine are printed monthly, and recognized as the best consumer guide by French people who are well known as the most discerning consumers.
