    Samsung UN55MU8500FXZA reviews

    MU8500-Series 55"-Class HDR UHD Smart Curved LED TV is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a great T.V. I'm very surprise by the quality of the screen and speaker system. All of the added features are great, and they are easy to use. My family and I are very happy with this T.V. and will purchase other Samsung products in the future. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV TV delivers great, clear picture with numerous apps. Easy to use and the connection hub is great at minimizing all of the cords that go to the tv. TV is also very quick to turn on and boot-up. I bought the curve version, but really can't tell the difference between curve and non-curve, but very clear picture.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture with a nice design but lacking technically for an 8-series. The picture color and clarity are amazing for a LED television. The user interface is slightly clumsy but easy to navigate. I rated this television at 3 stars due to the lack of a gigabit ethernet port. While some reviews have stated that the MU8500 is equipped with a gigabit ethernet port, this is simply not true. I have tested in-house and the port is 100Mbps.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV Excellant picture. True to the advertisements . Color is dynamic as is the blacks. Looks excellent on the wall, near as nice as a piece of art.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from 2nd tv I bought this tv the first time little under a year ago.. within 30 days had dead pixels it was exchanged and I had this tv about 7 months and now I am about to file another claim being I have a green line down the ride side of the whole tv.. I also bought a 42 inch 1080p a year and half ago and had dead pixels in that tv as well within 6 months.. it seems now on 3 tvs 2 4k tvs I have had issues within the 6-8 month mark.. very disappointed in Samsung with the tvs and how long they last.. the value for these and overall rating is horrible while design and features are great.. ao another words you made a really cool looking piece of crap in my opinion.. I think im done with Samsung purchases

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from one connect box is probably the BEST feature ever i've had this tv for a couple months now, had the ks8500 model first. this model is an upgrade from the ks model, but it feels slightly lower. everything about the ks8500 brought me to smart the transition to this one was a tad bit...meh. 4k looks spectacular, so does HDR...i don't like how they removed some of the led lights at the bottom of the tv and the back of the tv feels cheap..i do like how you can hide the wires within the stands, but that's probably the only thing i'd take from the mu model and bring to the ks model..i have both tvs. both of which are 55'.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Excluding the frustration from the tv not supporting 1080p but everything 4k I connect to hdmi 2.2 has screen flickering issues. Every thing with the tv works fine except for the one connect hdmi. I had to have a new one sent and it's very frustrating. I just bought the new Xbox one x and when conneted to the one connect box the tv flickers and then goes to black screen for 5 seconds then returns to picture.i will see if the new one context box makes any difference and update my review upon arrival.
