      Nothing Special

      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.

      Fantastic 4K TV for the money.

      I bought this TV for my aunt. I set it up and found it be an excellent 4K TV for the money. The colors are great and almost as good as what is on the Samsung QLED sets. I was a little concerned that maybe motion blur would be an issue (as on the 7000 series), but I found this TV to be excellent, I watched some sport programs, and no motion blur was evident. Also, this is one of the few TVs were the sound (base) is good enough without a sound bar. The build quality is good, and it has a nice stand. Just be careful of how Samsung packaged the screws for the base, and for the base to the TV. They are packaged just opposite of what you would think. The up-scaling of 480 programs and 1080 programs is great. The off viewing angle is slightly better than what I've seen, but I would figure in the width of good viewing to be just slightly greater than the distance to the set. I up-streamed 4K content, and it was in par with higher end Samsung TVs. If you want a great starting point 4K LED TV, this is it.

      I have this guy mounted up in my room with my consoles hooked up. The visual quality is phenomenal. UI and set up is quick and easy. I use it very frequently with my ps4 pro and I LOVE it. The low latency and consistent high framerate are really great. It really shines with the full high speed set up. (Be sure to use a high quality HDMI cable for optimum results.) Just be mindful that it advertises 120 frames but in reality you're only getting a max of 60 for modern devices. The 120 fps is simulated for older devices/videos. HDMI cables are not capable of tramsmitting any more than 60 fps. Overall I love it and use it every day.

      I am so delighted with my purchase. I have to admit that I was someone hesitant because of the price, and kept thinking I could buy cheaper - another product - but I am glad I did not. The picture on this TV is stunning, so beautiful that it is mesmerizing. Another "happiness" factor is the ease of setup. Plug it in and follow the instructions. I was able to set up all my applications and the internet without having to contact customer support or the Geek Squad. I was extremely happy. I highly recommend this TV if you are in the market for a new TV.

      I went in looking for smaller Samsung TVs around 40” and honestly once I saw the quality of image in this unit I was sold. It was on sale for $100 less than the tag when I bought it. The picture is crisp and clear and lifelike. The sound is great, but I recommend getting a Samsung Soundbar to go with it! The smart features are jam packed and useful. I love the 4HDMI ports so I have freedom to hookup any device as well! Using the one remote to control my Systems, firestick, and soundbar is an awesome feature! It was a breeze to set up! I loved that I was able carry it by myself into my home. (not recommended but possible)

      Great TV for Xbox One X

      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

      After a month of use I love this TV. Bought this for an office TV. Works awesome with PS4 pro!! HDTVtest tested the input lag for the 49" model at 13.5msecs in 4K HDR!!! Have not noticed any disadvantage of 60HZ on this 49" model. NFL and MLB games look fine in standard HD, Netflix movies look great. The back of the TV is clean and has a sweet groove to organize cords so there not hanging, stand is nice. Definate upgrade from 43" Panasonic Plasma (great TV). For the money I consider this a solid TV.
