    Samsung UN65MU8500FXZA reviews

    MU8500-Series 65"-Class HDR UHD Smart Curved LED TV is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful picture Colors are vibrant, and picture is clear. You can actually see blemishes on people's faces. Easy to view from all angles. A little difficult to operate since there are so many features but worth the effort. You feel you're at the movies. Not too difficult to set up, instructions are clear. And you can call for support with any questions. Shopped around compared other brands. Settled in Samsung because of crystal clear picture and reliability. I have another Samsung which I also love. Worth the extra month to go with quality. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An incredible HD experience Outstanding UHD TV! I bought the curved 65" MU8500 about a month ago. I am thrilled with the vibrant 4K experience. I have a 2007 Toshiba LCD flat screen and the Samsung blows it away! It's a little pricey, but well worth the experience. The sound from the set is pretty good, actually, but I recommend getting a nice sound system to go with this. I got the Bose soundbar and bass unit and it sounds amazing. Would I recommend this Samsung MU8500 tv to a friend? Absolutely!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Quality I researched several 4k televisions for about 3 months. looked at all of them live and in person at the various stores. I finally decided on this model. I was concerned because the models in the stores always seem to produce a very good quality picture and I was wondering what it would look like at home. My tv was delivered and I set it all up myself ( very easy to set up, just follow on screen directions.) I am very impressed with the picture quality and sound. Really like the curved frame. I am very pleased and highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a new tv.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quality I have five Samsung TVs in my home and I have to say that the quality just keeps getting better every time. I bought a 1080p 75" Samsung just over a year ago and this 2160p 65" Samsung makes it very hard for me to go into the other room to watch it now. The picture quality is simply amazing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tv The TV is everything they said it would be. The color is out of this world, friends said they could not believe the clarity and color. They said it makes you feel as if you are in the same room as the people on the TV. LOVE the TV.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This is the best TV I've ever had. I own several Samsung TVs. This TV replaced a 60" Samsung that I loved, and still do BUT this one is better. Bigger size, "smart", and the picture quality is fantastic. I couldn't really justify the price of the QLED, so I bought this one instead. Everything from normal TV shows to sports to movies to games are sharp, clear, and color perfect. Can't go wrong with this TV. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture Very pleased with everything about this television. It has a very sleek style with the curved screen and the one connect box conceals all the mess of wires from other devices. Excellent picture quality from all angles. The smart features are easy to use and its very easy to connect other devices via Bluetooth and or WiFi. My favorite of many Samsung products throughout my home.
