Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Have had excellent performance and experience with this TV

I have quite a few Samsung products and purchased this TV for use with video gaming, netflix, and watching TV. I don't use the Smart HUB as often asI thought I would simply due to having my computer directly connected, but it has performed admirably.

We have used Smart HUB a bit and it has worked fine including the built in Netflix capabilities. It also doubles as a computer monitor for my media and main PCs and for videogaming using the main PC and an XBox 360. In all instances it has worked perfectly with no issues whatsoever.

Poor but not willing to leave the best ones please correct the issues in 8000 series.

I am a great FAN of Samsung regarding their overall capabilities in wide range of appliances. I prefer a high end gadgets and many are successful with Samsung but i purchased a NEW Samsung TV of 8000 series which is just checking my patience there are many instances I have changed 3 TV's of same Model and now each and every TV i get delivered to home is facing a one or the other problem.

Today i have recommended Samsung Galaxy S3 to many of my friends but i am not in a position to recommend my TV to them which is really a problem for me which i cant suggest to my friends. I say the performance for this model is low. In the two TV's of samsung which i have i am now having no other option than returning my 8000 series Tv. Team, please update me once this model will be a really best one and i will be the one to purchase it once it is really good. I will never like to go to any other product than samsung. Superbly you are the best but please rectify the Issues in the Picture-tube faults, sudden shutdown of the TV's. Thanks, Sandeep

This product has great features BUT

I purchased this tv almost a year ago, l have been without for the past 5-6 weeks due to bluetooth issue. Without the bluetooth your 3D glasses and qwerty keyboard will not work.

On the up side when working it was a nice unit with an impressive picture.

Superb image quality, features, value.

Purchased 7 of these for our conference centre in downtown Toronto for daily use. Couldn't be happier with the decision. The image quality from either computer or video source is simply amazing.

As the AV/IT Manager I have seen a number of displays in my career and none would come anywhere close to this unit. Haven't had a chance to test the SmartTV features in-depth as we don't use them but I from what I've seen I am impressed. As for the ultra thin bezel, other than constant "wow's" from our clients, can't say much else. Simply astounding, well done Samsung, well done!!!
