    Nothing Special

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Bought this unit after seeing it in the store. This is the 2018 model, and it looked nice enough on display. I figured it had to have some stellar upgrades over my 2014 Samsung Curved television, plus it was on sale, so I pulled the trigger. Big mistake. As soon as I had it set up and turned on, I was disappointed. The 4K picture was nice, as expected, but it looked glossy and fake. Watching the hockey game that night on the Apple 4K stream was a nightmare. I could not find a setting where the picture looked crisp and clean. In fact, I ended up going back downstairs to watch on the old 2014 model. I am not sure what happened here, but I saw no improvement whatsoever in this 2018 model. I am sure there are some redeeming qualities somewhere, but with Best Buy's quick 15 day return policy, I was not willing to wait around and find out. Instead, I exchanged it the very next day for the Sony Bravia X900E at the same exact price. Wow. What a difference! The Sony blows it away.

      Hi Anthony,

      I am sorry that our NU8000 series did not meet your need.
      Samsung offers a feature called Auto motion plus to enhance motion performance.
      Although this is an improvement for most, some viewers feel it differently.
      Therefore we include a menu that allows you to customize how the TV processes motion allowing all customers to dial the TV in to make it look great for them.

      Should you ever decide to give Samsung TV products another try, please know we are always here to help. You can contact our Customer Support toll-free at 1-800-SAMSUNG. Or copy-paste this link into your browser to LiveChat or Email us:

      We are likewise reachable by Facebook Messenger at:

      Again, my sincerest apologies. We hope to regain you as a customer in the future.

    Great TV for Xbox One X

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    I purchased this TV to use in my home office/ man cave with the main use being my Xbox One X gaming. The specs on the website are not accurate (this is a 60hz panel with the "motion rate 120" not a 120hz with motion rate 240) but with my main usage being console gaming I don't really need anything above 60hz. The colors are great and the One X looks great on this TV. Bonus: it has been announced that this line of TV will be receiving an update that will enable VRR/Freesync which will be awesome for Xbox One X owners

    Great TV

    Brilliant picture, great sound. Was easy to install, love this new remote. Old .avi files don't play back on this TV, but I still have my old BD player, which supports this file format. Doesn't have audio outputs for my old wireless headset, only optical audio. I'll try to find adapter or have to buy new headphones, which is not a big deal.

    Not connecting to WiFi network

    • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I’m giving 3 stars because the 49” was not connecting to my WiFi network at all. I’ve tried everything and it didn’t. I went in and exchanged it with a 55” same brand and so far it is working. It’s good for now

    Replacement for 12 year old plasma. Picture much sharper but viewing angle and blackness not quite as good. Smart features work well but have not used oral capabilities yet. Happy with purchase.

    Great picture

    Crystal clear, sharp picture. Descent sound quality. The remote control isn’t as fast reacting to user inputs as other remotes. I still give it 5 stars though
