Samsung UE55MU8000 assessment

That wasn’t as it changed into the excellent-appearing TV of 2016. There had been objectively greater capable alternatives. Instead, it took the prize because it controlled to bring a hugely astonishing 4K and HDR viewing revel in the right down to a low price, at a time whilst maximum producers have been booking the tech for flagship devices.

This yr, Samsung has made a factor of dividing its top rate TVs from its midrange. The lovable quantum dot generation that propped up older SUHD models is now reserved for the pinnacle tier QLED range, alongside ramped-up luminance and a proportionately higher rate tag.

If that’s a chunk wealthy for you, then don’t forget the MU variety. The MU8000 sits on the pinnacle of that with the Samsung MU9000. While it’s clear that Samsung has reserved its satisfaction for the QLED range, the MU8000 packs some great surprises. If you’re after an awesome 4K and HDR performance and you’re no longer hell-bent on eliminating a mortgage for a QLED version, the MU8000 might be for you.

It’s flat. That would possibly appear like a peculiar area to start. However, Samsung is the handiest manufacturer, nonetheless strongly pushing curved TVs. For folks that aren’t enthusiasts of the MU9000’s curve, the MU8000 is the ideal opportunity considering they share basically the same specs some other place.

The layout takes its cues from the remaining yr’s top KS models – slim bezels (the pinnacle and facets, besides) and a Y-shaped stand. The thin frame surrounding the TV is steel, but anywhere else is plastic. To be blunt, it feels a bit cheap up close – I observed a few hard edges after I became setting it up, and the unmarried-neck method will wobble a chunk if you nudge it. Still, it seems best from the sofa. And on a realistic be aware I’m satisfied to peer a TV with a center stand, as opposed to having feet proper on the corners – you don’t then want a bench as wide because of the TV.

As is now conventional on Samsung’s greater fancy TVs, most of the connections are housed one after the other in a One Connect container. There are four HDMI ports (all 4K and HDR well-matched) and USB ports alongside the aerial connections and a virtual optical output. On TV itself, there may also be an ethernet socket and one more USB port.

Sadly, there’s no sign of the incredible-skinny, almost invisible cable that runs from the TV to the One Connect field. It’s a normal chunky cable, even though the stand’s returned peels away to show a neat cable control channel. There are two remotes: a traditional one with masses of buttons and a ‘smart’ one with a streamlined design and fewer buttons. TV smart remotes are constantly a piece hit and omit, but Samsung’s attempt is one of the better ones, and I determined the use it a lot extra than the traditional one. This yr’s clever remote has been advanced with better grip and rubberized buttons.
