Samsung UE65HU8500 review

 

Samsung gets its 4k curved groove on

Sensational native 4K pictures ; Peerless 4K upscaling ; Upgradable connections and 'brains ; Impressive audio performance

Curve can exaggerate reflections ; Slightly high input lag ; 3D Preset too aggressive ; Viewing angle limit

Samsung UE65HU8500 curved 4K TV review

 

Its maker believes you'll all go ape for its banana-shaped Samsung UE65HU8500 4K flagship. But it's Netflix 4K that really wows...

4K picture performance ; Twin tuner functionality ; Aggressive pricing

Awkward oval remote ; Viewing sweet spot ; Looks silly wall mounted

With its innovative curved design and leading-edge spec, this advanced 4K UHD screen from Samsung demands to be seen. With native 4K streaming content, image quality is simply sensational. Colour vibrancy and dynamics are extraordinary.

‘Ooh, I really want a curved TV!' said nobody ever. But today I find myself testing one anyway, thanks to Samsung's conviction that the future of TV isn't flat. In fact, so sure is the Korean screen king that bent is best that it currently only offers...

Stunning picture quality with all sources; feature- and content-rich smart system; upgradable connections and processing; good audio performance

The curve can cause reflection issues; picture presets overcooked (especially 3D)

A striking design and brilliant Smart TV content and features, but it isn't the best when upscaling lower resolutions to 4K

Samsung UE65HU8500 review

Overall, the HU8500 can be considered a head-turner of a TV. Although we are not entirely convinced by the value of the curve, we will concede it looks pretty cool. Picture performance is excellent, particularly with native 4K content streamed via...

Samsung UE65HU8500

 

The future of TV starts here

Stunning 2D and 3D picture quality ; Extremely sophisticated smart TV system ; Future proof thanks to HDMI 2.0 ; Sets a new bar for TVs ; 1,000 less than last year's model ; Curve really works at this size

Presets for 3D not ideal ; Curve can cause reflection issues ; Input lag a smidgen higher than we'd like

To be honest, it’s kind of handy that the curve doesn’t strike us as an unmitigated disaster, since Samsung is so behind its curved technology that it’s only fitted its curved screens with its top-line panel and processing technology. If you’d rather...
