Superior picture quality. Everything is ready straight out of the box, so apart from plugging everything you’re ready to go, this is great for non-tech savvy people. And the design fits for any home.

The stand out feature is the VyperDrive gaming mode which significantly speeds up the transmission between the TV and your console. When this mode is active, transmission is five times faster, this completely removes any chance of lag.

Out of the box the images are spectacular, sharp, vibrant colors and deep blacks. 3D movie watching is stunning. Beautiful Frame. Easy to hook up external storage devices to view photos and videos.
Reviews from customers who have bought Samsung UN60D8000 60-Inch TV recently

You cannot go wrong with this TV and 99% of people who buy it will be thrilled with the awesome cinematic picture, plus all the useful features it comes with. Another deciding factor could be the aesthetic design, as the bezel (the base) allows for much better positioning and angling.

The Good
Fantastic picture quality
Plenty of connection ports
Wi-Fi functionality
Internet functionality and 3D HD
Perfect for HD games
The Bad
Sound is not equal to picture quality
Whilst the Samsung UN60D8000 does not come with a game mode, it does include every single other recommendation from the top of this page. It comes with full HD and has an LED screen, which means the picture has great brightness and sharpness levels.

The Auto Motion Plus 240Hz feature means there is literally no motion blur when playing games, this definitely makes up for the fact there is no game mode. The odd looking stand allows for optimum angling of the television as well, a great feature for gaming.

Game Mode

What is Game Mode?

Ports & Connections

Make sure you choose a 60 inch TV that comes with enough HDMI and audio ports, so you can connect your gaming console plus other devices.

Screen Type

Plasma vs LCD/LED 60-Inch TV for Gaming?
Plasma screens are well known for having smooth images with zero lag when gaming, but LED-LCD screens tend to have sharper images. This one is down to personal preference really.
Input Lag rating
The parameter indicates the delay between pressing a button and seeing the reaction of a game. No need to mention the lower the number the better. It should not exceed 50ms for heavy gamers, anything above 200ms is highly distracting. On the other side no need to go below 30 ms as the difference is usually not noticeable.

Full HD

This should go without saying, but you need to get a television that has Full HD and that can display all available HD resolutions up to 1080p (1920×1080p, 2.1 megapixel). It will guarantee you a high quality picture and the best gaming experience.

3D Capability

3D gaming is becoming more and more popular. Plasma screens are great as they have the lowest levels of crosstalk, whilst LED screens have a much brighter picture. Again this is all about which you prefer.
