Samsung UE55HU8200

 

Curved screen meets UHD resolution to gorgeous effect

Outstanding picture quality ; Content-rich smart TV system ; Upgradable processing and connections

Curved screen distorts reflections ; Smart interface is a little cumbersome ; Seating positions to get maximum advantage from the curve are limited

Stick with the dynamic contrast system set on its Low level to preserve image stability, shift the colour temperature from Standard to Warm 1 or Warm 2 for watching films and finally, if you’re wanting to use a PC or games console on the UE55HU8200,...

Samsung UE55HU8200 review

 

Samsung's cheapest curved screen delivers superb 4K/UHD picture quality

Impressive design ; 4K-ready ; HEVC/Netflix 4K support ; Smart Hub apps

Some motion blur ; Poor voice control ; High price ; Better value alternatives

This is one of the best-looking TVs around. As well as UHD awesomeness, the UE55HU8200 treats Blu-ray and Freeview HD very well with high detail, accurate colour and bags of contrast but struggles with its voice control and motion blur.

Samsung HU8200 review: A curved version of our favourite 4K television

 

Review: Samsung's HU8200 offers a great compromise between quality and value for money.

HD and UHD picture quality is amazing ; Design accentuates image ; Smart TV features class leading number of apps

SD quality is poor ; Reflections can be distracting

At the end of the day, the curved vs flat screen television debate comes down to personal choice, as both have their positive and negative aspects. The UH8200 television comes in at £2,399.99 in the UK, and for that you get stunning image quality, a...

Samsung UE55HU8200 (HU8200) 4K Curved TV Review

 

Samsung's mid range Ultra HD 4K TV drops the One Connect box but otherwise offers most of the features found on their flagship model.

Great native contrast performance ; Nicely uniform backlight ; Superb colour palette ; Good 3D performance ; Excellent scaling and processing ; A highly effective dimming system ; Decent sound ; Comprehensive smart features ; Gorgeous looks ; 4K Netflix

Very occasional motion artefacts ; Give the football mode a miss

The UE55HU8200 is another great addition to Samsung's growing line-up of Ultra HD 4K TVs and, as with its stablemates, it delivers an impressive combination of performance, design and features. The picture quality is excellent, with accurate images...

Perfect

 

What a TV! I recently purchased this TV after searching both 4k and OLED. I have to say i made a great choice. This TV is a step up from the UE55HU7200 and just under the UE55HU8500. I wanted a TV that could upscale to 4k without losing any quality. I...

Excellent TV!

 

I'm delighted with this TV. The gentle curve makes it more comfortable to view tho I can't explain how. 55" is quite a step up from my last 40" but I've soon adjusted and the detail the picture shows is excellent. I've not had any problem with sound as...
