It's the largest set of its kind on the market, and it's priced to match.
The UN65C8000 from Samsung is huge. At 65 inches, it's the largest LED backlit 3D television on the market today.
Samsung's massive 3D television features everything you've come to expect from the 8000 series. It's got a ridiculous 8,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and Real 240Hz tech built right in. It does precision backlight dimming, and sports Samsung's Ultra Clear panel.
There's plenty in the way of internet content, since the UN65C8000 can connect to the 2010 suite of Internet@TV content providers. It's WiFi ready – which means you'll need to attach a dongle – which means you can Skype with your friends without having to worry about cords.
And of course, it does 3D. The emitter is built into the set, so there's nothing extra to pick up there, but glasses are sold separately.
It's an impressive set to be sure, and it's currently selling on Amazon for a price of $5,999.
