Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall a very good TV This smart TV was my choice after problems with a previous model of a different make, and we believe it was a good choice. It was more expensive, the smart remote (2 are supplied, one standard and one smart) is rather less smart and I think the TV takes longer to process commands, but the picture is miles better and overall richer quality. We don't use the voice activation feature or control it with out mobiles as yet, as we don't want everything in our lives to be technologically sophisticated. Although we now have it mounted on the wall, initially it was on its stand which is heavy and well-shaped, and I think it provides a very good support.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very clever but fails on a few simple details Great picture following a simple set up process. Sound quality excellent even on the internal TV speakers. Apps and smart features work well. Why must it always default to terrestrial TV rather than the higher quality Freesat on start up? Why can you not access subtitles in one click rather than half a dozen?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great all round TV I wanted a larger TV during the first lockdown, it’s taken me a long time to get one. I wanted a Samsung as I’ve had two previously and have been very pleased so firstly I looked on line and selected a couple that came into my price range and had the facilities I required but couldn’t get all the information I wanted from the internet so I started to phone around but not so easy to talk to someone during this pandemic. That was until I spoke to Kieran at Richer Sounds, he answered all my questions and commented on both TVs, I made my mind up there and then and he offered to deliver one the next day, best service I’ve had for a long time. I’ve had the TV for 10 days now and I’m really happy with the UE43TU8500, picture quality is very good and all the facilities it has, well I’m amazed, overall it’s a good quality Television.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with TV but design of the stand is terrible Had TV for a couple of weeks now. Happy with the picture and would have been happy with the sound (but I had ordered a sound-bar anyway after reading reviews). Easy to set up and operate although the extra remote takes a bit of getting used to as there are very few buttons on it. The problem is the stand - I don't want my TV on the wall and the TV is correctly connected to the stand but TV doesn't feel very secure. It can be wobbled up and down (but can't be angled for viewing at any other angle) and the screen doesn't actually sit horizontally. It's about an inch lower on one side. Cable tidy doesn't fit securely either. Maybe these wouldn't be issues if it was wall-mounted. Also it can only be controlled by Alexa if the TV has a wireless connection to the internet, not if you use an ethernet cable. Overall happy with TV and value for money but it should be possible to produce a much better stand design for those of us who don't want a TV on the wall.
