The first appearance of the Samsung 85’’ TU-8000 is very pleasing – it has a sleek, stylish look and a hard wearing, well-made feel.
This is an impressively large model which requires a large living room to complement it and produce a fully immersive viewing adventure. The pencil-thin bezels keep distraction and division to a minimum, allowing the eye to continue the movie action beyond the screen real estate. Whether you choose to wall mount your model or place it on a stand, this is an enviable addition to any home.
Although fully customizable, the screen display is incredibly user-friendly, with some great innovative ideas. Samsung’s Shadow Detail is one such idea and offers the ability to adjust the contrast. We found the combination of this and the Contrast Enhancer set at mid-range provided a realistic juxtaposition of luminosity and solidity. The full 4K color range brings crystal clarity to every scene thanks to the powerful processor, and with deep, rich blacks and bright crisp whites, Samsung provides an exciting visual experience.
The Ambient Mode is a nice touch, and is included as standard. Adapted from The Frame, this allows a choice of artworks or your own photos to appear on the screen in downtime.
The smart platform is Samsung’s Tizen. Popular for its easy setup, thanks to the SmartThings app which provides simple on-screen instructions, Tizen offers both versatility and customization with an all-round package of apps and features. The on-demand service is impressively vast and includes Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Plus, and iPlayer from the BBC.
The two voice options are the Samsung staple of Bixby and Alexa. Both have their advantages, with Bixby providing more specific TV controls and Alexa, sleek and velvety voiced, offering all manner of assist services.
With 20W stereo speakers, the audio is impressive and offers three fully adjustable settings. These provide the ideal personalized aural experience, keeping you immersed in the on-screen action until the very end.
All in all, Samsung’s 85’’ TU 8000 brings better-than-cinematic image quality right into your home and is worth every dime of its budget-friendly price. This is an easy recommendation for us!
