      I'm not an audio/visual expert. I can't give you a bunch of technical jargon but I can give you a regular dude review. With that being said... This is a fantastic TV. The picture is amazingly crisp and clear. Colors are very vibrant. Even when not viewing 4K material. Set-up and attaching the stand is very simple. The apps work great. I haven't had any issues with them crashing or lag. The built-in browser also works very well. The speakers are notably better than most but still not great. I still use a sound bar. I don't really notice a lot of impact on the viewing experience due to the curved screen. It's there and I like it but it's not a huge difference. I wouldn't pay 100s of dollars more to go curved over standard but with the price being comparable it was a good choice. The remote is small and cool looking. Using that to go directly to and navigate apps like Netflix and YouTube is, in my opinion, a huge upgrade over having to turn on my PS4 and use the controller for those things. Other than that, I don't use the TV remote. I've tried to use the Bixby voice control thingy. I wasn't impressed. seemed like I had to yell to get it to acknowledge my commands. Maybe it's to much technology for me. I watched some of the Hall of Fame game last night and it was awesome on this TV. I was already stoked about the season starting next month but oh man...I can't wait. To sum up...Great TV, amazing picture quality, better than average but not great speakers, Bixby..meh, great app platform or whatever and it works well. Nifty little remote, cool built-in web browser, curve is cool but don't pay a ton extra to get it over a standard screen, you should buy one, football

      When researching the multitude of TV options I became more and more upset. I really wanted to have an OLED TV but the percentage of legit negative reviews stopped me from buying one. This TV had the least negative reviews that I found. The curved screen allows you to watch TV from around the room without missing parts of it. The picture is amazing. It is HD so you can really see the difference in picture quality with movies that are filmed in HD. The sound quality is great too. I have only been using it for about 5 weeks, but I hope that I will have it for a long time.

      Great TV but poor reliability

      I would have given a 5-star review to this TV if it hadn't turned off by itself only one month after purchase. The technician from Geek Squad found the root cause of the failure: failed power supply board. The board was replaced two weeks after. Hope it was an isolated failure... My TV has been working fine for one month now. I am still pretty disappointed by Samsung. This kind of failure wouldn't have happened a few years ago. Technology evolves but we cannot say the same about the reliability!

      Beautiful HDR

      Replaced a larger 4K UHD tv for this smaller curved 4K with HDR (bedroom tv) and I’m glad I made the switch. The HDR really shines (blacks are seriously black) but also the color depth is really noticeable. Great for 4K gaming (PS4 Pro etc) bit even standard HD looks great due to the contrast ratio. Also, it’s light enough to put on a mount, or stand with mount, or dresser. Probably a bit small for anything other than a bedroom, but the price is unbeatable. Great buy!

      I really wanted the new QLED TV's from Samsung but it was too expensive. So we settled for the next best thing, This has awesome picture quality, pictures and movies look so realistic. Animation colors are so vibrant its amazing! Don't take my word for it, just compare it to other TV's in the store and decide for yourself! Thanks for reading my review.

      I've had a 55' Samsung curved tv before 9500 series but by mistake I broke it, couldn't afford to buy another one. Now I saved and waited for a good deal and let me tell you this tv is one of the best if not the money, curved is the way to go it immerses you like your there the colors are vivid. I would recommend it for your home theater.

      New curved Samsung

      We purchased this newer model of the curved Samsung 55-inch 8500 to replace the previous model that we had owned, because it had been destroyed by a nearby lightning hit. It seems as if the picture is even better than the previous model, and the curve is slightly less. It is a perfect fit for our walkout basement.
