    Downgrade from 2018

    Back in March my 82in NU8000 developed a horizontal line of dead pixels. I contacted the service department which arranged for the TV to be exchanged with a 2019 RU8000. Sounds great doesn’t it? When the new TV arrived and was set up i immediately noticed the brightness was only a fraction of the previous model. The TV is set up in a room with wall to wall windows and no blinds to be drawn. Needless to say the TV is nearly unwatchable during the daylight. This article linked below confirms that Samsung did indeed downgrade the unit from 2018 to 2019 and the brightness is significantly lower as well as several other key features are inferior.

    This tv is surrounded by windows.

    Our loft is 34 x 21 and is built with 7 foot windows looking out over our lake. The picture is stunning in full sunlight. Couldnt be more pleased again with Samsung. Set up was a breeze and hanging on the mullion was simple but required three people to balance the 82 inchs.

    My 82″ Movie Theater

    This TV is great, it really makes my basement feel like a movie theater, since installing this set, my wife can’t get me out of the basement. I love this TV I keep trying to convince my wife to purchase another one to replace my old (65″) rear projection one in the living room. If you are looking for a great TV with great features, look no further. This has all the needed features and a great price also.

    Only issue is mirroring

    Mirroring from my iPhone to my smart TV should be a piece of cake. However there’s a samsung app they tell you to download and that don’t work for nothin. So basically have to go out and buy an Apple TV

    Love the Smart HUB feature

    I’ve had this TV about 2 weeks and love it.
    The Smart Hub is a great convenience.
    Great Picture, easy apps. Looks awesome in my home.
    The remote was easy to learn. It is somewhere between a Roku and FireStick.
    It is small and easy to hold.
    When changing channels, the picture blurs but turns sharp in about 10 to 15 seconds.
    Colors are natural and awesome. 4K is awesome.

    This is smart

    This TV is just so much more advance than any previous I have owned. The picture quality it’s amazing but i was not expecting a smart TV to be so ex to work with. It goes well above just having built in apps. Very impressive.

    Fantastic picture

    Best value for the price I can think of. The extra box provided with the TV for connections to gaming or other devices makes for permanent mounting inside a wall so you never have to go to the back of the TV to connect anything. The sound is very good for a flat screen TV. Almost don’t need any outside amps unless you want very loud reproduction or surround.

    Love this TV, Loaded with great features

    Can’t believe how wonderful watching TV has become again. My wife first thought this was just “to Big” but once she sat down and watched, she loves it and thinks the colors are perfect and now I can’t get the remote away from her. Everything looks better and can’t tell you how good Sports look.

    The TV is very good so far.

    I bought the product from Amazon at a price of $2,147.00. The delivery was fast and the guys brought it down to my basement; that was helpful. My son and daughter love Samsung TV. They started using the voice command and now the voice cannot understand my voice command. Why? I am used to the Direct TV remote control, in which I can change channels fast. I think Samsung should look into how to change that fast. Perhaps, I am not using the remote control rightly.

    Mind BLOWN!!!

    I am an intense gamer and movie watcher and this TV takes the win in my book!!! I have had many latest and greatest Tv’s of all sizes and this one is a winner. This picture and sound quality are amazing and make everything come to life. All my older movies and games have new meaning and I see and catch more of my collection now. I look forward to seeing what is up and coming. Oh yeah and the customer service team TOP NOTCH !!! I had a situation that was so professionally handled that it is not worth mentioning the issue. It was resolved in a great time frame with a friendly and courteous way. Thank you, Samsung and the whole Samsung team.

    The TV is simply amazing!

    I mounted the TV in my mancave. It is the focal point of the room. Watching sports and movies, playing video games, listening to music on this TV is my new favorite pastime. It I the envy of my friends. They all come to my house to watch the game now!

    My home theater

    I am a 68-year-old grandfather with a Man/Kid cave. I have 11 grandchildren from 2 to 14 years old who almost live at my home. We added this 82 inch UHD tv to replace the 65 inch Samsung (which is now the video game tv) and it has been amazing. I had heard the term true blacks but did not understand what it meant until we installed this tv. The description should add true Reds, Blues, Greens, etc. the colors are gorgeous. This tv truly gives us a mini-theater experience with every movie we watch and a front row seat for every game.

    Everything about this TV is a step up from standard television. We bought it for the size and 4K UHD and it delivered. Sound not so much but a soundbar takes care of that. Great Buy

    Review of the Samsung RU8000 82 inch unit

    The TV has a great sound and extremely easy to navigate between channels and options on the TV. Picture is sharp and enjoyable to view. I watch movies mostly and the streaming is fast and clear. I would recommend to anyone.

    Really a good TV. No need to go to movie theaters.

    This is a beautiful TV. I bought it with a surround system and had BestBuy Geek installed. I don’t have to go to movie theaters. We have a Vizio 40inch and nobody turns on that TV. I just dont like SamSung universal remote because it stopped working with my surround system.

    Product is more than I expected

    I’ve been buying Samsung products for years because of their quality and performance. Samsung is way more superior that other manufacturers. Aside from other product this is my third and favorite TV

    Huge TV

    I’m convinced after watching this TV that size is the most important consideration in buying an ultra hd tv. There is no substitute, and this TV is without a doubt the most cost effective super sized tv you can buy. Color and contrast are top drawer. The picture is amazing. Upconverted 1080p content looks almost as good as 4k and on a screen this size you can really appreciate the extra pixels. The operating system on a smart tv is next to picture quality in terms of importance and Samsung delivers here too. It doesn’t offer as many streaming channels as a dedicated device might but it covers the important ones. It’s also very fast and very intuitive. This television is well worth your consideration.

    Better Than Advertised

    I was concerned about purchasing a Samsung TV as the last one I purchased was sluggish in response and did not blow me away. I had only own Sony TV’s before that and I felt Samsung was inferior to that point. Needless to say I am glad I gave Samsung another try! I was absolutely blown away by this 82” behemoth! The 240hz refresh rate tracks fast motion flawlessly! The picture quality is impeccable and the features are everything you could expect and more. Setup is a breeze and integration into your existing home theater is extremely simple! I love the remote and the voice activation works well! For the price you will be hard pressed to find a better T.V.!

    Samsung 82 inch RU8000 Review

    My 82 inch Samsung RU8000 is a beautiful TV. The picture is sharp and the colors are brilliant. The option to turn on game mode is a wonderful included perk for those who plan on gaming on a large screen. I recommend this TV to all of my family, friends, and people I play online.

    Best Picture of any TV I’ve ever owned but…

    Love the picture, even the upscaling looks awesome. My only issues have been occasional sound dropouts using the digital audio out connected to my surround sound system and the HDMI ARC port just plain will NOT work with my Sony home theatre system, I get video but no audio whatsoever and I’ve tried different HDMI cables, bought new very expensive ones and it just will not work regardless of cables and settings. One last thing that I do not care for is the
    Ir receiver block on the bottom right of the bezel. It sticks out and isn’t flush with the rest of the bezel. Just looks tacky and one must be very careful if moving the set. My TV is the UN82NU8000, SN 078J3CAK503723J, 82” version.

    Great picture – Great price

    Needed a new tv for my recently updated basement, not only did tv meet our budget it exceeded our expectations! The Picture is Amazing and menu easy to navigate. The built in apps makes so easy to find the shows and movies you want to watch instanly. We love this TV and now all we need a good sound system to enhance the surprisingly
    great sounding built in speakers. I highly reccomend this Tv
