I have just bought a VT50 to replace 2 faulty/poor D7000. Not the D8000 I know but there is no comparison in black levels and I don't see light bleed or clouding on the VT50.
I considered the D8000 as a replacement but even the Samsung rep told be I would not be happy with LED tech for some time. I watch mine in a dark room at night. This emphasises any shortfall in black levels. Rep said it is best to watch LED in a well lit room. Mine is in my bedroom and it tends to dark when I go to bed!
Just my two pence worth
