Introduction

The Samsung UN46B8500 is a high-end TV, if that isn't evident enough from the $3599 price tag (MSRP). It's thin and sexy, to be sure, and the box is stamped with all sorts of fancy add-ons. Whether those features justify the price is another question. While we found the performance to be top-notch, some of the multimedia features are downright terrible, and call the whole package into question.
