Samsung UN55NU8000FXZA


Samsung's NU8000 series of 4K HDR LED TVs offer a premium design, plenty of connected features, and a wide color range, but disappointing contrast.

Stylish. Lots of smart TV features including Bixby voice assistant. Bright panel.

Mediocre black levels and contrast ratio. Expensive for the performance. No analog video connections.

Samsung's NU8000 TVs pack a stylish design with plenty of connected features and a very bright panel, but lag behind in terms of contrast performance due to mediocre black levels. The 55-inch model we tested is generally a strong TV when considered on...

Samsung UE55MU8000


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

Samsung proves that you don’t need to spend a fortune to appreciate 4K and HDR.

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

Restricted viewing angles ; Lacks dynamism in its sound

A TV ready to give you a fine 4K HDR image at a mid-range price

Samsung UE55MU8000 review


How good are mid-range tellies in 2017? This stunner has the answer

Sharp, detailed picture ; Vibrant, but believable colour palette ; Excellent smart TV offering ; Easy to navigate and set up

Viewing angles are tight ; Sound lacks dynamics

Thought mid-range meant middle-of-the-road? This excellent TV will make you think again

Samsung UN55MU7000 / UE55MU8000 review


A talented mid-ranger that stands out with HDR

Impressively bright HDR pictures ; Good smart TV system ; Attractive design ; Minimal input lag

Some black level issues ; Limited viewing angles ; MU7000s are better value ; No Dolby Vision support

The UE55MU7000 (known as the MU8000 in the UK) is more impactful with the sort of bright 4K, HDR images it was essentially made for than pretty much any rival in its price range. The push for brightness does compromise contrast and backlighting at...

  (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...

Excellent value for money.


I brought this TV a couple of weeks ago and it's excellent. The picture quality is the best I've ever seen and it was so easy to set up and get working.

Great quality TV


I'd bought pretty much the same model in a 39" screen recently and I'm very impressed. Consequently went the same route for the 55" in a different room.
