Internet You can access internet videos and streaming content via widgets and applications. A wide variety of internet content is available, but you don’t have browser search capability.

Depth This Samsung HDTV is ultra-thin with a depth of only 1.4″. Provides a sleek look, especially if you can wall mount-it. – Samsung PN58C8000YF Review
Frame Standard, multiple-level design with some space between the screen and the bezel. Single-level designs can provide a seamless look that is preferred by some consumers.
Speakers Speakers provide 20 watts of total output power, which is about average. – Samsung PN58C8000YF Review
HDMI Provides 4 HDMI inputs so that you can connect a cable box and other devices such as a DVD player, video game console, and PC.
