Samsung UE49NU8000 Review | Trusted Reviews

Samsung NU8000 (UE49NU8000) review: A terrific Black Friday TV deal


Class-leading input lag and superb image processing, but the 49in model's 60Hz panel lags behind the 120Hz panel on larger sets

Excellent video processing ; Accurate colours after calibration ; Lowest input lag to date

An excellent TV with good picture and sound


I bought this two weeks ago and am amazed at the quality of the picture. Also, for Sonos fans, the digital optical output passes Dolby 5.1 from external devices such as a bluray player.

Easy to setup, excellent picture, great sound.


I thought our old TV had a great picture until I saw the image from the Samsung it blew us away. Even watching a black and white oldie film we couldn't believe how good it was. Also the sound is great. I have a sound bar but we have had no need to...
