    Great TV, but.............

    First off, I have been dreaming about having a 65” TV for over a year, but wanted to wait until we moved to our new place since the old place didn't have room for one. We finally got all moved and settled and I drove 70 miles to Best Buy to purchase my dream TV, Samsung, UN65MU8000FXZA. I went to the Manchester, MO store and found a salesman to ring up my purchase. The only question I had was would they deliver since I lived so far away. The salesman said sure, not problem. An hour later, there was no one at the store that could figure out how to get this done since it was a Sunday, so I left the store in total frustration. A couple of week later, Best Buy put this TV on sale even cheaper and was offering free delivery and install. On August 4, I drove up to the Fenton, MO store, found a salesman and he was able to ring it through with no problem. He told me that I should receive an email within 24 – 48 hours giving me a delivery date and the tv should be delivered within a week. Well, 3 days later, still no email, I called Geek Squad and after about 30 minutes of hold time I now had a delivery date of August 18th. Geek Squad showed up within the given time and everything was great. Well, 2 days later, the TV started to loose picture and sound for just a second or two every 5 to 30 minutes. It would just flash off and back on. Netflix and DVD did not experience this problem. I called ATT Uverse, the technician ran some tests and magically all was good for the rest of the day. The following da, I sy, The flashing started again. Once again, I called Uverse, they did there testing and all was good, but they also scheduled a technician for the following day. The technician came out, the TV was once again flashing so he swapped out the Uverse box. This did not resolve the issue. He started searching for an answer in his data base and said, oh this is a know issue between Uverse and Samsung TV's. The work around is to use composite cables however, this TV does not have composite hookups. At this point, I said get this box out of here and get Directv in here. So he gets Directv scheduled to come out the next day. Directv shows up on time, does his installation, but this does NOT resolve the issue. Now, I call Geek Squad and tell them I want a replacement TV. Geek Squad processes the return of the old, emails me a new receipt and tells me I should get an email with 24 – 48 hours with a delivery date. Two days later, and still no email, I call the Fenton store and get routed to the South County Store, who then transfers me back to the Fenton store. (Apparently, the South County Store handles all calls for the Fenton location). So I finally get Joe on the phone who says he is a manager of the store. He puts me on hold, 15 minutes later he says he got disconnected and asked me to hold again, I told him I would not and to just call me when he as an answer. An our later he calls back, claims he was disconnected 2 more times and I should receive an email in 24 hours with a delivery date. The next day and STILL NO EMAIL, I call the Fenton location, via South County location. Joe is not there but I now speak to a manager named Nathan. After hearing my story, Nathan says he will call me back shortly. About an hour later, Nathan does indeed call me back with a delivery date of the following day. THANK YOU Nathan!!!! The next morning, Geek Squad shows up and replaces the TV. Flashing gone, picture quality is even better then the first TV. I am still in awe of the picture quality of this TV. But, we are NOT done yet. Over the next week, I noticed every time I want to watch a Blue Ray, I have to go to the expert sound settings and toggle from PCM to Bit, back to PCM to get sound from the Blue Ray. So I called Geek Squad to get an appointment for someone to come out. I did buy the extended warranty after all. He tells me since I live out of their service zone to contact Samsung since it is under warranty for the first year. I said fine, but what happens in year two if I have an issue? He states he didn't know, but is sure they would figure it out by then. Not much confidence there. BTW, up till now, Geek Squad had been great So now I call Samsung and surprisingly I get right through. After explaining the problem, he asks me what type of Blue Ray player I have. I told him it was an LG, about 5 years old. He stated it must be a comparability issue, and I am thinking here we go again, just like the previous Uverse. So I hang up, run up to Walmart and purchase a Samsung Blue Ray player. Luckily I was wrong. It's been 3 weeks and everything is still working, with the exception of a Directv 4k issue that took 3 days to rectify. Directv issue came back and has been out for last 10 days. They are "working" on it and need a software fix to get the 4k working properly. After all of this, I still love this TV. I have however lost my confidence in Best Buy and their procedures, especially their phone system,

    Not impressed

    Initially I was impressed with the TV, but now that I've had it for a week, I can not recommend this TV to any of my friends and here's why. First off the pros: • The picture does look good/great, but this can vary drastically as with any TV based on the source. • The packaging and the overall design of the set is nice. The cons: • HDR is not impressive AT ALL. I paid extra because I wanted an HDR set. All I ever read is how great HDR is, but I can't even tell you when it is running. I finally noticed if you go to the settings menu and look at the picture source when it is playing HDR there is a little HDR next to it. I read on line the older sets use to give you a pop up notice letting you know it is displaying HDR. The simulated HDR+ button it has makes the image look worse, not better in my opinion. • This TV doesn't work well with a Harmony remote. I own a very expensive Harmony Elite remote and I have to use the included TV remote with this TV to access its smart features and apps. I have several Roku TVs and I can set up scenes to run netflix and such, but not with this one. • The APPs suck. This is not an Android OS, it is Samsung's OS and the support and variety of APPs are limited. This is probably one of my biggest complaints. For instance, although Sling.com is available on this TV, they have yet to integrate their DVR functionality into the Samsung APP. The first APP I downloaded doesn't even work. It just freezes every time I open it. I tried deleting it and reinstalling, but no luck. • The one connect is flawed in design. Although a great idea, it is not clear how to set it up to work properly with a surround sound system. My old TV had all my components going through the surround sound receiver and then a single HDMI to my TV. You can't do that with this because then your sound will only play what input your receiver is set to, not what APP you run on the TV. For instance, you are watching TV, but then decide to turn on Netflix. Well if you set it up the traditional way, you will hear the TV sound and not Netflix although the screen is displaying Netflix. But, if you go through the one connect the TV doesn't automatically switch between surround sound decoders. I rented a Blu-ray disk that only had DTS sound and it wasn't playing in surround sound. I had to dig through the menus in the TV to figure out what was wrong. It turns out I had to manually switch it to output DTS instead of Doby Digital. This brings me to my next complaint: • The instructions or lack of in this case is BY FAR THE WORSE I HAVE EVER SEEN. You would think setting up a TV is simple, but not with this one. There is no clear understanding of how to get the most out of this TV. My earlier complaint about the one connect and surround sound may not be valid because I may not have it set up right, but I have no idea. I found a e-maual on the TV, but it is a joke. You go to look up how to hook up the set and it simply says, plug an HDMI into an HDMI. Nothing about how you have to change the color to turn on HDR, nothing about how to get it to play in surround sound properly. •The remote is limited, too limited. It took me two days to figure out how to not just pause a movie, but to stop a movie. Also, it can't control my volume because I have it outputted to a receiver. •The stand is cheap. It comes off and hides the cords, which I thought was a great idea, but it doesn't stay on with the cords in it. It is as if it is broke. I had to use tape, yes tape to keep it on. •No smart things hub. I thought all the newer sets were getting smart things hubs, but this doesn't even have the app on it. I haven't checked to see if my current hub will integrate with it at all yet, but I didn't see a STs app in the store. If all you want is a good looking picture, this set may be for you if you get it on sale, but honestly I wasn't too impressed with the HDR. I think you can save more by skipping it. If on the other hand you want a comprehensive SMART TV that is up to date with its APPs and features, you should skip this TV.

    I was looking into upgrading my 4k Vizio 55" D-series tv. I have been doing the research and diving deep into backgrounds on vizio and Samsung brands. I really wanted to make sure I got what i wanted for the best price. 120hz...120 (at least) motion rate, 65" inch increase of picture from the 55" inch currently owned. I am mainly using for 4k movies (all movies), gaming on all 3 platforms (Xbox one, PS4 Pro & Nintendo Switch) as well as using with my pc sometimes. After all the researching was done I was literally at Walmart ready to purchase the Vizio 65" M-series for around 998.00 with extended warranty would have put it around $1150.00 with tax. I work at Walmart and could have used my 10% off eligibility. But something told me to keep looking for that amount of money...sat in the parking lot contemplating the purchase and decided to go back to searching and finally left for home. When I got home I simply typed in something i surprisingly hadn't searched for before...120hz and 240 motion rate just to see what would come up based on what I really wanted out of the future tv. Low and behold Best Buy came up on the screen and the 65" Samsung MU8000 series displayed on my screen. It had all the features I was looking for...finally. Now I know the "rage" is all about QLED TV's but honestly the price point is ridiculous in my opinion. This past Friday night May 11th I went to the closest store that had it in stock as there were few that did. Made my purchase at $1099.00 with 5 year extended warranty all together for $1450.00 roughly...don't break the bank and got everything I wanted in the TV itself. Now to the reason why I made this long review (sorry)...The very next morning I received an E-mail regarding a "24-hour sale" and sure enough there the TV i just purchased less than 3 business hours of the sales starting and a little over 12 hours from the original purchase. I was not upset but just kind of disappointed as if I would have known of the sale I would have waited a day. So on my lunch from work i came home and got online to Best Buy customer chat service and explained my question regarding the sale and possible price match eligibility with the agent (JemmyP). after a matter of maybe 10 minutes they price matched the TV I just purchased at $1099.00 to the sale price of $999.00. I was astounded at the level of service with making this purchase and the following day regarding the price match. Way to go Best Buy! You have more than made this customer happy. I will continue to make significant purchases from your company just off this experience alone. I purchase a Dell XPS last September of 17 and my Nintendo Switch in January...Ill be back when I'm ready for the Xbox One X along with 4k movie purchases. I understand I have only had the TV for 2 days fully set up and if something occurs that's why i have the warranty for 5 years and after this experience I'm sure it will be resolved with great service(hopefully no issues). This TV rocks as far as the picture quality on my 4k Blue ray player, Xbox One S, PlayStation 4 pro & Nintendo Switch is EXCELLENT on all 4 set ups. This is my first Samsung TV purchase and am more than satisfied with it and will recommend to EVERYONE. Lastly years from now when I look into making a new TV purchase again Samsung and Best Buy already have me committed. Sorry for the long read but sometimes you need the fine details to understand why to make the purchase and this Seller and Brand purchased are primo! You will be happy if not happier as I am. Thanks Best Buy for making my day.

    This wasn't the TV I wanted, but when my trusty Samsung DLP TV got to the unusable stage I couldn't justify spending $200 on a new DLP chip. I was going to get a 1080P model off the floor, but the specs on this 4K wonder looked good on paper so I splurged. Can you say impulse buy? Right of the bat, I was surprised at how heavy this thing was even considering its size. However It is quite thin, mostly thanks to the nifty "connection box" that was a major selling point to me. Rather than struggling with cables running into invisible ports scattered all over the unit, there is a single (albeit fragile looking) cable that goes to a little box you can actually see. This is especially useful if you decide to wall mount the TV using the VESA holes. This was my only option because the wobbly legs jam up into holes in the outside corners. If your TV stand isn't at least as wide as the TV, you'll need to get another stand or use the VESA mounting option. If you have cats, earthquakes or clumsy family members I would avoid the legs. There is a RJ-45 Ethernet socket provided only on the back of the TV, but I gave up trying to get it to work and used the wi-fi connection option instead. Connecting to my home network was easy using the remote, which does take some getting used to. It has weird buttons that toggle up and down as well as press for some functions like volume control. I'm not a big fan of these one big button remotes that make you go through a maze of menus for things like changing channels and source selection. 99% of the time I use a connected Tivo anyways, so the remote is not as annoying as it could be. Trying to use the voice command function on the remote is somewhat entertaining. Not since the Apple Newton have I encountered a device that just can't seem to understand what I'm asking for. It's just as well, as the "smart TV" functions are disappointing and honestly sub-par for a product at this price point and not as good as cheaper Samsung smart TV's I have set up. I won't go into details, but if smart TV features are important to you...well buyer beware. My main complaint with this thing is that it insists on upscaling everything to 4K. This makes the picture look like a 1950's kinescope. If you're a movie buff and care about seeing content in its original form, you will be disappointed. So far I have not found a way to disable this feature, which does not seem to be coming from the Tivo because it does the same thing to files I play off of my server. Speaking of which, If you want to access files from a network share you're not going to have a good time. The only thing I found that works is installing some cheesy Samsung "easyshare" software that, by the way, does not play nice with Plex if you have that on the same server. There is no Plex app for this TV, which boggles my mind. A $29 Roku has that and is 100 times more functional. Does this TV meet my minimum requirements? I guess so, but I was expecting better from Samsung so I can't really recommend it.

    I bought the TV and a Samsung sound bar. Set up was easy and I really liked the separate box for HDMI cables. Makes it nice and clean behind the TV. But, I couldn't finish the set up. The TV would not accept a zip code regardless of 30 attempts including different zip codes from all over the country. I called Samsung and got support in less than five minutes. They confirmed that they were aware of the zip code problem and ensured that an engineer would get back to me in a couple of days. What? A brand new TV and I couldn't use it for two days? Later, the TV actually worked. But now I couldn't get the sound bar to work. Called Samsung again. They said the sound bar was bad and I should return it to Best Buy. The manager was very helpful and had a new sound bar shipped to my house. The new sound bar didn't work either. So, Best Buy sent the Geek Squad to ensure that I set up the TV properly. They came and worked for an hour and a half and confirmed that my set up was perfect. So, now they shipped a new TV. After about two weeks of trouble, three visits to the store because no one was returning calls, the TV works just fine. I was very disappointed with the manager because he was actually annoyed with me for bothering him in the store. He made a point that when the new TV gets delivered they would not do the set up because I didn't pay for the service. But, I didn't spend over $3,000 to be without being able to use my purchase for days, made numerous calls to Samsung and Best Buy and got little support. The least they could have done was to help with the set up considering that I did it correctly twice. I now love the TV and the sound bar. But, it was really not a good experience.

    I bought this tv to replace a 55” Samsung that was a little older and had a burn in line on right side, was not good on motion and choppy Smart TV. I have tried other tv’s but Samsung is my go to TV...I have 5 Samsungs in my home. This TV like most new ones is light as a feather. I had considered a curved model but when I went to BB showroom wanted to stick with flatscreen. The picture in BB was AWESOME, but all of the TV’s are in the showroom. Brought it home and was so happy it went on my TV stand...the screw holes int he back are like a lot of people mention, I had to make a couple of trips to Home Depot/Lowes (where I found what I needed). Had it up and running quickly. The picture in my living room is outstanding right out of the box. After changing some options I find that in the day I like the Dynamic Setting during the day and more Natural setting at night (for sports). The standard setting is great for watching other shows, I do move the backlight down because it is just too bright for my liking. On day 1 your eyes have not adjusted so just rest assured it will be better the next day. The biggest surprise on this TV is the sound....I thought my kids had the stereo system going but the sound out of the TV itself is AMAZING!!! Not like my surround stereo system but I don’t see any need for a sound bar if your thinking of going that route. Best sounding TV I have ever heard!! This TV has much better interface and I love the simple remote, once you get used to it you will surrender what ever your using now. The SmartHub is much easier to use and i love the other inputs. Sports have ZERO motion blur which my other TV was supposed to be the best at but used to blur moving footballs and pucks. This one is clear, clear, clear on everything I have watched. I always get bigger on size and am happy but my small living room may be maxed out at 65”...someday I will have a 400” tv. You can never have too big in my opinion. Great buy, great TV...highly recommend to anyone seeking new TV, esp for sports. You will not be disappointed!!!

    Nice TV, smart in many ways

    After researching weeks, maybe a solid month for the best TV for my needs, I settled on the Samsung 8000. My criteria included budget, picture quality, features and thinness. I try not to spend too much on TV’s, usually $1k or so, give or take. Technology moves so fast, it doesn’t seem to make sense to spend a lot. The TV will be used mainly for OTA programming, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and movies via Netflix. I found the picture quality of this TV is decent, I used the settings from ratings.com. I do however, notice the Samsung Plasma that I replaced had better color as far as dark scenes. The new TV is very sharp and has vivid colors. By the way, you’ll want to turn off the motion control in the advanced settings, that will get rid of the “soap opera” look. The design of the TV is very nice, practically no bezel on sides and top, just about 1/2” on the bottom. I preferred this over the Sony TV’s. The TV also has the “One connect” box. 1 cable attaches this box to your TV. All your HDMI, USB and optical audio connections are on this box. For some reason, the cat 5 connection is on the TV itself, not the one connect box. I like the one connect box - I chose a slim wall mount (2” from wall), it’s difficult to get your hand in back of the TV to plug anything in. With the box, you stand on a chair, pull the cable to get the box and add or remove cables. Anytime there’s a change in source, say for example a Nintendo Switch is connected to HDMI 2, you insert a game into the switch (with TV off), the TV will turn on and goto HDMI 2 input by itself. Saves you from having to figure out which input to turn it to. A seemingly easy task for most. But that question comes up often in my house. We occasionally use the Xbox One as a DVD Player, remarkably, the Samsung remote can control the Xbox one as well. I was surprised by that. Speaking of remote, it is a very basic remote. Not the old remotes one might be used to with number buttons etc. only a handful of buttons and voice control. Not elderly friendly. The all share is one of the other reasons I stuck with Samsung, having had several Samsung TV’s before. It’s nice that I can stream videos directly from my NAS to the TV. Overall, most would be happy with this TV. Yes it doesn’t have full array, local dimming, but for that, it’s approximately 50% more expensive. I would’ve preferred a 75”, but that’s about 2x the price of a 65”. And a 75” full array - even more. So I settled a bit, but happy overall.

    When I see the Negative Nancy reviews on a TV of this quality, it makes me pause. From my experience, it's usually user error. Which seems to be the case here. This TV is nothing short of Spectacular. Sure, It's not the OLED Q series, but this is the 9 series from 2016 with a few upgrades. as of 2017 Samsung dropped the SUHD label and the 9 series all together, too confusing for the Customer. This is my 2nd 4k TV, previously owned and LG 65UB9500...which was great until the panel went bad. Good thing I use the DTV protection premier plan which nearly gave me enough cash to cover this one. I went with Samsung over LG for several reasons. 1. I feel Samsung is the better quality. 2. I liked 3D, but can respect that they know the market just didn't cover it, so they dropped it. 3. More compatibility with all my other gear than an LG or Sony. and lastly...the picture quality is amazing! For those of you that say it isn't, you're doing something wrong or you're using the wrong gear. All I know is everything played through my XBOX 1S is 4K looks 10 times more glorious than my old 4K TV. Even lame DTV 720p channels, which are the majority of DTV's programming looks better on this TV. The 4K channels on DTV look simply stunning and Netflix 4K (and even 1080P) just look absolutely stunning. Black levels, clarity, lack of seeing pixels, just amazing. My only complaint is the power cord...it's too short for use on a stand if your gonna run it down the channel they designed to come out the base of the left foot, you only have about 10 inches after that. Nothing an extension cord wont fix, but nonetheless an oversight by Samsung on an otherwise amazing TV
