one connect box is probably the BEST feature ever

lopakalypse 7/26/2018

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 tvs...so 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'.

2nd tv

skinzfan1978 6/17/2018

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

Had issues from day 1

Bogey0029 5/14/2018

This TV can produce some really awesome pictures, and at times it all goes south. 4k movies with the HDR are phenomenal, but when it comes to watching TV, most live sporting events and newer TV shows are fine, but then this mysterious 8-10" band appears vertically up the whole height of the screen and it looks horrible. When the TV has no input signal the screen should be black right? This one displays that 8-10" band in purple. I have already had just about everything replaced internally, replaced all HDMI cables troubleshooting this thing, same results. Guess I got a lemon. I was a little taken by a customer service rep forcing a survey on me when I was trying to tell her it was not fixed. She said she noted that, haven't heard anything since, about a month now. Time to start this process all over again.

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.

Great Upgrade

zackieboy 1/1/2018

We just upgraded from a curved 7200 to a curved 8500 and it was well worth the upgrade. The only sad thing was that I was told that SAMSUNG was not producing the curved TV after 2019. We went to the curved TV and have been a lover of the curve or not. We see a true depth of color and picture. So we will have to make plans in the future for our TV purchases, I hope they do not follow through with their plans. As for the the new TV. The ONE CONNECT feature is a super idea. IF the end user can not clean up all the wiring mess then SAMSUNG did it for us. A super picture right out of the box, The phone support is good. I wish it had more US operators/tech folks, but the folks they have are good. We truly love our new 8500 curved TV.

Excluding the frustration from the tv not supporting 1080p but everything 4k I connect to hdmi 2.2 has screen flickering issues.

Aaron94 11/30/2017

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.

Ronin728 9/23/2017

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.

Great TV

gbmich 9/22/2017

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.

Great picture with a nice design but lacking technically for an 8-series.

techCrunch 7/26/2017

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.
