Samsung UE55HU8500 review


Samsung's flagship 4K/UHD TV with curved screen and enhanced Smart TV features

Superb pictures from all sources ; Peerless Smart TV selection ; Future-proof spec ; Excellent multi-media integration

Gimmicky football mode ; Viewing angle limitation ; Too many remote control methods ; Looks bad on a wall

Ratings in depth You could be forgiven for thinking that AV manufacturers actually like making it hard for us to choose a new TV.

Pretty much as good as 55-inch TVs get if you don't mind the curve

Superb contrast-rich picture quality ; Content-rich smart TV platform ; There can be benefits to the curve

There can be issues with the curve ; Slightly high input lag ; It's not cheap

One other thing we highly recommend is that you use the TV’s Cinema Black feature on its low or likely Mid setting. This does a great job of getting rid of any residual light ‘jets’ that might still be sneaking into the black bars you get above and...

As expected with today's technology, picture quality is great, sound not so great with such a slim design concept. However, the separate connect box is a good idea for the different connectivity options. The best part is that it already comes with a...

Samsung UE55HU8500


Great image, will only be enhanced when 4k is used by broadcasters. good design but wish I had gone for 65'' instead of 55

Sound is poor for size of TV, so you need a soundbar, I chose the curved to match TV but save your money and get flat version you will only notice the difference in your bank account

This tv really gives a much better picture than I expected even on normal SD channels.I use the freesat inputs and a sound surround system on the HD channels the 5.1 is really good, and the picture gives a cinema feel to any programme

Samsung UE55HU8500


Picture quality is very good in 1080p ...But any resolution below HD is a wash out !.... The tvs 4k output from you tube's 4k footage is exellent. And the 1080p upscale to near 4k on some applications is very good indeed

Setting up this tv for the different peripherals is a little time consuming (ps3,ps4 and bluray player).....But the worst is the very bad customer service from Samsung and their online service engineers. I have had problems with the On TV software...
