Samsung UE55MU8000 Dynamic Crystal Colour Ultra HD HDR 1000 Smart TV Overview
That wasn’t on the grounds that it was the best-performing TV of 2016. There were unbiasedly more skilled choices. Rather it took the prize since it figured out how to bring an immensely great 4K and HDR seeing knowledge down to a sensible cost, when most makers were holding the tech for leader units.
This year, the Samsung has tried separating its exceptional TVs from its midrange. The flawless quantum speck innovation that propped up more established SUHD models is presently held for the best level QLED go, alongside inclined up luminance and a proportionately higher sticker price.
On the off chance that that is somewhat rich for you, at that point consider the MU go. The MU8000 sits at the highest point of that with the Samsung MU9000. While obviously Samsung has held its best for the QLED extend, the MU8000 packs a couple of charming shocks. In case you’re after a decent 4K and HDR execution and you’re not dead set on taking out a home loan for a QLED show, the MU8000 may be for you.
It’s level. That may appear like an odd place to begin, however Samsung is the main producer still firmly pushing bended TVs. For the individuals who aren’t enthusiasts of the MU9000’s bend, the MU8000 is the ideal option since they share basically similar specs somewhere else.
The plan takes its signals from a year ago’s best KS models – thin bezels (the best and sides, in any case) and a Y-formed stand. The thin casing encompassing the TV is metal, however wherever else is plastic. To be limit, it fondles somewhat modest close – I saw a couple of unpleasant edges when I was setting it up, and the single-neck approach implies it will wobble a bit on the off chance that you prod it.
In any case, it looks pleasant from the couch. What’s more, on a functional note I’m happy to see a TV with a middle remain, rather than having feet comfortable corners – you don’t then need a seat as wide as the TV.
As is currently customary on Samsung’s more favor TVs, the greater part of the associations are housed independently in a One Connect box. There are four HDMI ports (every one of the 4K and HDR good) and two USB ports close by the elevated associations and an advanced optical yield. On the TV itself, there is likewise an ethernet attachment and one more USB port.
Tragically, there’s no indication of the super-thin, practically undetectable link that keeps running from the TV to the One Connect box. It’s a consistent stout link, in spite of the fact that the remain’s back peels away to uncover a slick link administration channel.
There are two remotes: a customary one with heaps of catches and a “savvy” one with a streamlined plan and less catches. Television keen remotes are dependably a bit hit and miss, yet Samsung’s exertion is one of the better ones and I ended up utilizing it significantly more than the customary one.
The MU8000 has a 10-bit board with a 4K Ultra HD determination (3840 × 2160 pixels). It offers high unique range in the basic HDR10 design, and in addition the up and coming communicate cordial HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma).
Oh, there’s no Dolby Vision, which is usually viewed as superior to HDR10 on the grounds that its dynamic metadata can be utilized to advance the photo outline by outline. In any case, Samsung isn’t discounting dynamic metadata – it’s putting forth HDR10+, a contender to Dolby Vision. HDR10+ is an open-source design, that Amazon Video has officially joined to utilize.
It’s an edge-lit LED unit – Samsung isn’t putting forth a solitary direct-lit unit this year. I’d be truly stressed over this if not for the way that last year’s Samsung KS7000 offered some exceptionally noteworthy darkening abilities. Samsung is unmistakably sure.
The MU8000 has an asserted splendor of 1000 nits. That is the level of shine offered by a year ago’s best models, yet not as much as Samsung’s QLED extend this year, which can hit 1500-2000 nits.
Samsung has been shaking its Quantum Dot innovation for a couple of years now, however this year that has been held for the QLED models, for example, the Samsung Q7F. Rather, the MU8000 depends on the ‘Dynamic Crystal Color’ motor, which cases to convey more than a billion shades.
Two or three years prior I would have blamed Samsung for boldly ripping off LG’s webOS interface, yet nowadays it’s become an alternate monster. The launcher bar offers two levels of symbols, some of which are customisable. It’s a snappy approach to hop between your favored applications and sources, and it’s as simple as channel jumping.
Picture execution is exceptionally amazing, as long as you temper your desires. All things considered, 4K HDR TVs are still in their relative outset, and on the off chance that you step far from the front line models, you will wind up with more bargains. The MU8000’s picture quality is a blended pack, yet the great outweighs the awful.
I’ll begin with the negatives. As is basic with edge-lit LED TVs, there are some lighting issues. I sometimes recognized some blurring. It’s particularly discernible in dim territories at the best and base of the screen – in case you’re viewing a motion picture with dark bars best and base, will probably observe it. It’s truly mellow, the extent that obfuscating goes – there’s less here than there was on a year ago’s KS7000, you’ll just truly observe it in a dull room and still, at the end of the day it’s absolutely conceivable to get accustomed to it. The level shape factor of the MU8000 may help – our survey of the bended Samsung MU9000 had far harsher words in this office.
Review edges aren’t astonishing. Samsung has gone for a VA board here, which is useful for differentiate yet poor for calculated survey. In the event that you move out of 25-30 degrees from focus, you’ll start to miss out on differentiation and immersion, and the lighting will look discernibly non-uniform.
With respect to hues, I’ve seen more grounded from Samsung, and this is unmistakably second-level execution. What you arrive is bounty energetic, yet the Quantum Dot models this year and a year ago simply look wealthier and more unpretentious, with a more shifted palette. There is likewise incidentally some striping in HDR. Gratefully it’s uncommon, however.
Proceeding onward to the positives. What I truly like about the MU8000 is its difference. It gets bounty brilliant, and it gets bounty dull. It’s not exactly 1000 nits – we’re taking a gander at a most extreme of around 700, yet stop to give you an unmistakable visual effect, particularly when the blacks are so great.
Blacks truly look dark, as opposed to somewhat empty and dim, which is the thing that I’ve generally expected from LED LCD TVs. There’s not as much above-dark shadow detail as you may discover on a decent OLED TV, and you get negligible pulverizing on everything except the most outrageous of HDR pictures.
Features do truly well as well, with small cutting on splendid ranges, for example, headlamps and blasts. Join the two and you have a level of complexity and dynamism sufficiently solid to give you that HDR hit.
How about we not overlook the 4K component – Samsung’s aced the determination. The photo is bounty sharp, with heaps of fine surface yet without the excessively prepared look that can originate from being excessively eager. Upscaling from HD and standard-definition sources look clean as well, with not so much picture commotion as there could be.
Gamers will be satisfied to know the Samsung MU8000 does well on the inertness front. The 24ms info slack I recognized isn’t as noteworthy as the 21ms figure I recorded on the LG Signature G7 OLED, yet it is more than sufficient for focused web based gaming.
A last word on sound execution – it’s not a huge deal. It’s fine for the news, however for any genuine survey I’d prescribe a legitimate sound framework, or possibly a soundbar.
To get the most out of the MU8000, here are some set up tips. I’d prescribe utilizing the Standard picture preset – while I for the most part advocate the Movie mode, I feel this one is excessively quieted and delicate. Run with Standard and push the shading temperature to Warm.
For brilliant room HDR seeing, I’d suggest having Contrast Enhancer and Local Dimming on high. For dull room HDR seeing, you’ll need to turn those down to Standard or Low so you can abstain from seeing the sprouting – yet take note of this knocks your brilliance down.
Ultimately, the movement preparing is dreadfully forceful as a matter of course, so go into Custom mode and physically thump the counter obscure and against judder settings down – I have it no higher than 3.
