Samsung UE55MU8000

 

The Samsung KS7000 won the TrustedReviews award for TV of the Year in 2016.

Samsung UE55MU8000 review

 

There's a whole lot to like about this capable Samsung television

Vivid colours across the spectrum ; Natural skin tones ; Sophisticated handling of detail ; Easy-to-use smart hub

Samsung UE55MU8000 review

Samsung UE55MU8000 review

  (Rating Hidden)

As one of Samsung's pricier 2017 TVs, the 55-inch UE55MU8000 comes with expectations as high as the price tag. You get a raft of the latest features, including Samsung's smart-TV platform and a 4K high dynamic range (HDR) screen. Did it impress in the...
