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

Samsung's UE55HU8500 is every inch a flagship TV, combining a ground-breaking design with stellar picture quality and a rich, sophisticated feature count. We'd recommend going for a bigger screen size, if you can though, to reduce the potential issues...

‘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...

The UE55UH8500 is a worthy addition to the 4K/UHD stable, complementing its big brother, the mightily impressive UE65HU8500. There are some unsatisfying aspects to its less important features but for its sheer picture excellence it's a total delight. As...

The Samsung HU8500 is a pleasantly respectable 2014 flagship TV that stands out from the crowd with its curved design. With Ultra HD resolution and HDMI 2.0 ports for inputting native UHD content, the picture is so rich with detail that it looks...

We've already had a taste of Samsung's Ultra HD HU8500 range when we reviewed the 65-inch version, and it didn't disappoint. Some slight concerns over the wisdom of injecting some curvature in to the screen aside, the HU8500 was exactly what we've come...

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

Samsung is hailing the launch of its 65-inch curved flagship 4K TV as nothing less than the dawn of a new era of TV. The Samsung UE65HU8500 is certainly remarkable, and not just because of its unconventional Pringle-shaped panel. The set also boasts an...

With its dramatic curved screen, the next-gen Samsung UE65HU8500 UHD TV rewrites the 4K rulebook. Samsung has a barrage of reasons why your next telly should bend like a pucker cinema screen (it's more immersive, seems panoramic etc), but the bottom line...

Difficult as it is to believe, Samsung has improved the already outstanding picture quality on its HU8500 series of curved UHD television just by releasing a software update. With deep blacks, accurate colours and excellent upscaling, it's no wonder that...

By HDTV Reviews on

What is the Samsung UE65HU8500? The Samsung UE65HU8500 is where 2014 gets interesting. Not only is this 65-inch model the first TV from Samsung's 2014 TV range, it's also the brand's flagship 2014 TV. Which means two key next-generation things: it...

La télévision Samsung UE55HU8500 profite d'un beau design avec un pied qui est en parfait accord avec la courbe de l'écran incurvée proposée ici. Elle offre une excellente image notamment pour les contenus à très haute définition avec des couleurs...

International Review By pcworld.pl on 60

Wraz z wprowadzeniem na rynek modeli z serii HU8500 koreańska firma zapoczątkowała nową erę w historii techniki telewizyjnej – erę telewizorów z wklęsłym, bądź jak to woli określać sam producent, zakrzywionym ekranem (ang. curved screen). Zdaniem...

International Review By benchmark.pl on 96

Samsung UE55HU8500 to pierwszy na świecie telewizor LCD 4K z zakrzywionym ekranem. Producent podkreśla, że dzięki tego typu ekranowi „wrażenia płynące z oglądania wkroczą na nowy poziom”, a sama głębia obrazu jest niezwykle „wciągająca”. Musimy przyznać,...

La esencia del lujo R econocemos que es difícil tener este televisor delante y ponerse a escribir, en lugar de dedicar cada minuto a seguir disfrutándolo. Si la primera impresión es la que cuenta, lo único que se puede decir es: ¡queremos una! Desde el...

Al met al kan de HU8500 als een echte blikvanger worden beschouwd. Hoewel we niet helemaal overtuigd zijn van de toegevoegde waarde van een gebogen scherm, moeten we toegeven dat het er wel cool uitziet. De beeldkwaliteit is uitstekend, vooral met...

International Review By Ere Numérique on 80

Le Samsung UE55HU8500, c'est un peu le UE55H8000 pour les riches : il reprend la même courbure, un pied légèrement différent et intègre une dalle 4k… pour 1 000 euros de plus. Ça fait cher le...

Pros: Helt igennem vidunderligt billede, Lækkert design på trods af enkelte småfejl, Nemt interface, Nytænkt fjernbetjening

Cons: Kurven giver ikke mening på så "lille" en skærm, Der er næsten ingen 4K materiale, En høj pris

Tüplü televizyonlardan düz ekran olarak anılan, LCD ve plazmalara geçiş sürecindekine benzer, büyük bir değişim kapıda. Değişimin başrolünde ise yeni çözünürlük standardı Ultra HD nam-ı diğer 4K var. Henüz birçok yönden tam olgunlaşmamış bir standart...
