Samsung TU8000 Crystal UA43TU8000WXXY (43") has been discontinued. See all Samsung 4K Ultra HD TVs.
Average. The aged Sony it replaced was way better to use and better picture.
I have always been a Sony TV guy. We decided to upgrade the old Sony for a bigger screen during the lockdown as we are watching more TV. I really expected a much improved picture for a 4K UHD TV.
The Samsung had lots of HDMI ports but no headphone socket, no component video, and no RCA audio output, only optical digital. So no quiet listening using headphones, and no external stereo - unless you plan to upgrade to bluetooth headphones, and optical connect stereo.
The remote and screen interface takes some getting used to. It is not int...uitive. Fast channel scroll is a different button from individual channel scroll. Screen presentation is clunky and you can easily select some incorrect feature and the screen will lock up whilst it gets you connected to some external service you don't want. The remote is physically tiny. If you are dedicated user of Amazon or Netflix or one of the other limited streaming services it supports or you are an Alexia fan and wish to control your washing machine as well you might be happy. There is even a "Netflix" button on the remote control. Fortunately we have an Apple TV device and that has been great. Much better interface and much easier to use. If I could take the Samsung back and swap for a Sony I would.
Purchased at Buy Smarte Online store for $893.00.
Questions & Answers
weve just purchased this tv and are having a real issue with finding freeview on it . it has freeview on demand but no freeview app. whats going on? Wendy
Hi Wendy, whilst I'm no tech expert, if you press the Home button on your remote and scroll across to Source, you should see Samsung TV............Freeview should be available. Better still, go to the Apps icon and put all the channels you want to watch on your Home page at he bottom of the screen. Much easier and quicker. that seems to work well and have had no trouble with that. good luck.
Can you record live TV or use time shift on this TV
