55″ Samsung B8000 Series 8 LED TV

Samsung Philippines previewed their newest 55-inch LED TV last October, the inch-thick Samsung B8000 Series 8. They sent me one to test out for a week and I’m curious how that internet connectivity feature works.

I’ve tried and review the Series 7 LED TV here before and the 40-incher was great. This Series 8 I am using right now is 55″ and way bigger (it dwarfs my 42″ and 32″ LCD TV at home).


(Shown beside the Samsung B8000 is a 42″ LCD TV.)

Asrock’s local distributor sent me an HTPC last week and I have yet to unbox it. Would be perfect to try this out on the Samsung LED TV.

If you’re looking to get one of these this Christmas, prepare to shell out Php215,000.

    Sir yuga, sana mabasa mo to. May update ka po ba sa mga free windows 7 upgrades ng mga eligible laptops? Any viewer na nakatanggap na ng upgrade disc? Kasi yung upgrade disc ko eh nde ko pa narereceive. I don’t know kung sa microsoft or sa Gateway/Acer yung may problem. Yung sa tracking ko sa Mentor Media eh “Pick Up in Progress” pa since 11/11/2009 eh nakalagay na 6-10days ang delivery estimate pero nde pa rin nagbabago yung status.

    You know you should raffle one of these off, or keep one for the sales you make off this. Or kya have a link to amazon.com :)
