Leading CI distributor AWE Europe has added Samsung's designer 60inch D8000 3D LED LCD TV to its portfolio of high-performance TVs.

AWE managing director Stuart Tickle says: "What Samsung offers with this new screen is a perfect blend of sleek design, comprehensive functionality and superb picture quality.  These are all important aspects to our industry and D8000 delivers on all three counts."

In addition to Active Shutter 3D, the D8000 sports both Ethernet and integrated Wi-Fi, and offers access to the brand's online content portal, which boasts a large selection of downloadable TV apps plus a wide range of streaming video services, including YouTube and BBC iPlayer. 

The set also offers media playback via USB and across a LAN. Inside CI has been playing with the D8000 range of late and found while file support from USB is broad (and embraces AVI and MKV), network streaming is somewhat less predictable.  This is because the set's DLNA implementation is fussy about which media server software it works with. Integrators placing it on a LAN in order to stream content from a NAS are advised to test for compatibility.

Despite its huge screen size, the 60D8000 is light at just 21.6kg, which should make it a doddle to wall-mount. The set is Vesa compatible.
