Samsung UE55HU8500

 

Pretty much as good as 55-inch TVs get if you don't mind the curve

Superb contrast-rich picture quality ; Content-rich smart TV platform ; There can be benefits to the curve

There can be issues with the curve ; Slightly high input lag ; It's not cheap

One other thing we highly recommend is that you use the TV’s Cinema Black feature on its low or likely Mid setting. This does a great job of getting rid of any residual light ‘jets’ that might still be sneaking into the black bars you get above and...

Samsung UE65HU8500

 

The future of TV starts here

Stunning 2D and 3D picture quality ; Extremely sophisticated smart TV system ; Future proof thanks to HDMI 2.0 ; Sets a new bar for TVs ; 1,000 less than last year's model ; Curve really works at this size

Presets for 3D not ideal ; Curve can cause reflection issues ; Input lag a smidgen higher than we'd like

To be honest, it’s kind of handy that the curve doesn’t strike us as an unmitigated disaster, since Samsung is so behind its curved technology that it’s only fitted its curved screens with its top-line panel and processing technology. If you’d rather...

Samsung UE65HU8500 review

 

A feature-packed 4K screen that dazzles with its richly-detailed and vibrant picture

Superb detail definition Pleasing upscaling Exciting picture Vibrant colours Wealth of smarts

Black levels could be stronger A little unresponsive to commands

Impressive, attractive and entertaining, this premium-quality Samsung UE65HU8500 TV makes us excited about 4K’s future.

Samsung UE65HU8500 curved 4K TV review

 

The Samsung 65-inch HU8500 is the world's first 4K curved screen

4K picture performance ; Twin tuner functionality ; Aggressive pricing

Awkward oval remote ; Viewing sweet spot ; Looks silly wall mounted

Samsung UE65HU8500

 

‘Ooh, I really want a curved TV!' said nobody ever. But today I find myself testing one anyway, thanks to Samsung's conviction that the future of TV isn't flat. In fact, so sure is the Korean screen king that bent is best that it currently only offers...

Stunning picture quality with all sources; feature- and content-rich smart system; upgradable connections and processing; good audio performance

The curve can cause reflection issues; picture presets overcooked (especially 3D)

Samsung UE55HU8500 review

 

Samsung's flagship 4K/UHD TV with curved screen and enhanced Smart TV features

Superb pictures from all sources ; Peerless Smart TV selection ; Future-proof spec ; Excellent multi-media integration

Gimmicky football mode ; Viewing angle limitation ; Too many remote control methods ; Looks bad on a wall

With the UE55HU8500 Samsung has established its credentials as a leading light among makers of 4K/UHD screens. The curve won't be for everyone but it makes this a unique proposition in the 55-inch 4K market.

Samsung UE65HU8500 review

 

Samsung gets its 4k curved groove on

Sensational native 4K pictures ; Peerless 4K upscaling ; Upgradable connections and 'brains' ; Impressive audio performance

Curve can exaggerate reflections ; Slightly high input lag ; 3D Preset too aggressive ; Viewing angle limit

With the UE65HU8500 Samsung has delivered its annual trick of setting a new TV benchmark for the year ahead, achieving new 4K standards while also persuasively introducing a curved LED screen for the first time.

Samsung UE65HU8500 review

 

A striking design and brilliant Smart TV content and features, but it isn't the best when upscaling lower resolutions to 4K

Samsung UE65HU8500 review

 

Interestingly, the HU8500 adopts a modular design. As 4K standards are far from cast in stone, Samsung has coupled the screen to an external Smart Evolution One Connect tuner box. It's here that all sources connect, including aerial and twin satellite...

Overall, the HU8500 can be considered a head-turner of a TV. Although we are not entirely convinced by the value of the curve, we will concede it looks pretty cool. Picture performance is excellent, particularly with native 4K content streamed via...
