I come across this thread too late.
I bought my UE55D8000 for 3 reasons:
1) Image quality - Partially disappointed
2) SmartTV functionalities (i.e. Browser and Skype) Totally disappointed
3) The screen doesn't get hot like a radiator - Happy
Regarding image quality, I have to say that the left half of my screen is lighter than the other.
I didn't find any tune to fix it. It looks like the led on one edge are stronger than the other.
Regardin SmartTV, Samsung is getting very unpleasant to me.
Easy, a company that spend time and money to intentionally disable features is unpleasant.
For instance, did you try the web browser? It works fine indeed, it looks even better than my ipad !
Are you using it? I am sure, not at all !
Why ? Because without a keyboard you spend too much time trying to type the URL and, once you get the page, it is a pain to move around wihout a mouse.
What every user would have done at this point ?
Simple, run to the other room and grab the Logitec wireless mouse and keyboard from the PC and plug the two receivers to two USB ports of your bright new TV.
What a delusion to see that both of them are not working !
How did they tested the browser in Samsung lab ? I have no doubt, they used a keyboard and a mouse otherwise they couldn't complete the test with the IR remote. And than, why they disabled the feature ? I have my personal opinion here, but I dont want to influence you guys.
Same story for Skype.
As soon as I had my WiFi connection working I completed the Skype configuration... just to discover that the my expensive TV was missing even the cheapest microfone. So, out of the box, you can't use skype even for a simple voice call.
I spent hours surfing the web to find a Keyboard, Mouse and Webcam that is FOR SURE supported by my UE55D8000, but no clear information is available, only confusing marketing stuffs.
Well, sorry for the long tale,
Is there anyone who could advice about Keyboard, Mouse and Webcam that is FOR SURE supported by my UE55D8000 ?
