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 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 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...

Samsung UE55MU8000 review

  (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...

helles und farbstarkes UHD-Panel ; sehr guter Sound ; modernes SmartTV dank Tizen OS

Review: Samsung UE55NU8000 (NU8000-serie) lcd led tv

 

Deze Samsung UE55NU8000 toont dat een edge led achtergrondverlichting die gebruik maakt van local dimming belangrijke compromissen moet maken. Dim je te agressief, dan zijn de zones overduidelijk zichtbaar. Dim je subtieler (zoals deze Samsung) dan is...

Kleurweergave ; Goede bewegingsscherpte ; Uitstekend contrast en zwartwaarde ; Goed HDR-resultaat

Kijkhoek is vrij beperkt ; Meerwaarde van local dimming is beperkt ; Smartthings app moet nog wat verbeteren (installatie)

Review: Samsung UE55NU8000 (NU8000-serie) lcd led tv

 

De QLED-toestellen zijn de pronkstukken van Samsung, maar dat betekent niet dat je de ‘gewone' lcd-tv's uit het oog mag verliezen. Deze NU8000-reeks moet het zonder de design-features van de QLED-reeks stellen, maar heeft op vlak van beeldkwaliteit nog...
