Samsung UE49NU8000


Sleek design, but HDR performance could be better. Samsung UE49NU8000.

Accurate colours ; Good sharpness ; Very low input lag

60Hz panel on 49-inch version ; Ineffective HDR presentation

Despite a sleek design, high-quality video processing and very low input lag, the Samsung UE49NU8000 is handicapped by suboptimal motion and HDR performance.

Samsung UE49NU8000 (NU8000) review: Sometimes, bigger really is better


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

Motion performance hampered by 60Hz panel ; Sub-par HDR presentation ; Limited viewing angles ; No UK catch-up TV apps

Input lag offers some respite. With ultra-low measurements of 14ms in both 1080p SDR and 4K HDR modes, the Samsung NU8000 is the most responsive television we've tested to date. And it also has one final ace up its sleeve: unlike self-emissive displays...

Very good picture


Very good picture, wide range of features. I like the fact that most online apps are built in saving the problem of extra boxes. I have used the old satellite connections so use freesat for the extra channels it gives over freeview and if I need it I...

Excellent picture with natural colours


I wanted a new larger tv with freeview and this one was rated highly and seemed an excellent deal. The picture is excellent and the 49 inch screen is perfect for the room size. It was straightforward to set up too.

Clear picture, good connectivity


The product boasts a good clear picture, as one would expect with 4K UHD and the connectivity is also good. Don't know what the sound is like as I have it connected to a Yamaha RX-V485 AV receiver and 5 speakers. The one negative point for me is the...

Awesome TV


We brought this TV to replace our old Plasma unit. We are both over the moon with it. The picture quality is fantastic and the sound is good too. The price and the service from Richersounds was just great and would highly recommend
