Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Absolutely the best quality television I've owned and the smart features are very good also with the new included smart remote I think you've really smashed this range of tvs. I really don't do reviews but really nice bit of kit. haven't worked out automatic game mode yet that my old Samsung had tho.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing tv So glad we purchased this tv. It is an excellent smart tv very easy to set up (do need two people to put it on your tv unit once stand is attached as it’s so big!) once turned on easy to set up and get used to and I absolutely love the universal remote that comes with it! Have connected it to my surround bar and sub, Xbox, and you view box (personal choice to use the youview box instead of built in free view as I love the pause and rewind option on my youview box)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tv easy to set up I did some research on various tv’s and this Samsung came out on top for picture quality and price I also picked this tv with the centre base stand as I did not want a larger tv cabinet

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Shame about the Navigation This is a very good television with excellent picture and really good sound especially when teamed up with a premium sound bar. I am very disappointed with the TV on several other levels: I often use subtitles to help with age related deafness. Applying subtitles to live TV is a cumbersome and drawn out routine. I can’t believe how difficult it is to do this compared with TVs even 20 years ago. 2 out of 10 in this respect. We chose this TV for the built-in freesat which is excellent in an area with relatively poor antenna reception. However, the TV defaults to the antenna channels unless the antenna lead is removed and Freesat only is used. Surely this is not right? I am also finding that in using Freesat it needs to be auto tuned every two or three weeks because the local BBC station, most important for news to my mind, completely drops off, disappearing from selection whether by number, 101, or through the guide. By comparison with a similar Philips TV we have in another room this one is exceptionally difficult in navigational terms and although it has a better picture the Philips model is so much easier to use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No channel number edit I was so disappointed to find Samsung no longer provide cannel number edit on there latest models. I set up chaanels on all tvs so first 5 are all hd versions to enjoy hd experience. But this feature has been depricated for UK available in other countries as per manual and other manufacturers. Export channelist is pointless as channel editors no longer work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV Excellent TV. Fits well on my stand. At first I was worried it would not fit my TV stand but fits perfectly. Easy step by step set up, guides you through from start to finish. Voice assistants are really good, I personally use the Bixby voice assistant myself. Just have to press the microphone on the remote and tell it what you want it to do, you'll need to train it to your voice but it helps you to do that, really good. I had to play with the picture settings and sound settings for my viewing preferences, but one done really excellent picture and sound quality. It's also easy to set up a sound bar via the Bluetooth function, once it's connected and paired, connection is quick and really good. Other TVs I've had a problem with the connection via Bluetooth kept losing the connection but not with this TV, works really well. Also has a really good app store and all the usual catch up TV apps plus all the subscription apps aswell. Another thing is that it has Samsung TV Plus, At least 90 free channels which I find really good. I would highly recommend the TU8500 Crystal UHD 4K Smart TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV, great price, great service My TV finally gave up the ghost a couple of weeks ago. So many choices out there, with the latest technologies ever changing. After exhaustive research, I finally chose the TU8500. While it is not OLED, it's only half the price of one. The picture quality is first class, and the service from RS was excellent too. Full mart technology, meaning even a technophobe like me has easily managed to configure this TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV. Excellent picture quality and sound. This TV was an upgrade for our lounge. The picture quality is very good and so is the sound. Many features with this model making it a new and exciting experience. I am genuinely very pleased with this model as I have been with previous Samsung TV's.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Regret buying this TV, very poor I regret buying this TV which was a replacement for a Panasonic TV that went wrong. The screen is extremely glossy and the reflections from any light source in the room is horrendous. The TV is in the exact same position in the room as the Panasonic was so the comparison is a fair one. Why o why do TV manufacturers put glossy reflective screens on TV’s?
Date published: 2021-02-19
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average A hard TV to review, setting it up was easy it did everything itself, but the cable placement is poor near edge on rear. I had to purchase longer hdmi and aeriel cables and the cable tidy is too small for all leads needed. The picture is no as good as I have seen on other Samsung's, only the Vivid setting seems watchable, motion blur is obvious even after lots of setting adjustment. Viewing via my Freeview recorder results in a far better picture for some reason. The technology is a personal taste I have never used the smart remote or the majority of the apps on it. The home screen is useful if required pity it annoyingly shows up on every press on remote sometimes less is more. The Bluetooth cannot be turned off a surprising amount of strange requests to link show on the screen. Bought online with no chance to view in-store but Samsung's reputation sold it may have been different choice if seen. It is useable but a tech tinkerers toy. Not a decent choice in my opinion.
