OK for elderly people in brightly lit rooms


The biggest annoying issue is scheduled TV programs. I wish there was a way to turn off that feature for the elderly person who uses it. She thinks the TV has a mind of its own after she accidentally schedules a program. The colors fade slightly when viewing at a wide angle but I expected that. I tried to get the best 43" TV for a well lit room and an elderly person who just wanted a basic TV with good sound. The sound is clear enough for ordinary healthy young people but not great for mid range deaf people or audiologists.

Alright, but some very rude design and missing some features

Not as good as hoped


I purchased a Samsung UA43TU8000WXXY on 21 July 2020. I am endeavouring to “set up” and am finding the remote completely unhelpful bordering on the user antagonistic. This TV is replacing a Samsung UA40J6200 – completely user friendly. My major problem is being unable to pair my Pioneer Bluetooth earphones SE-MJ553BT-K to the new TV. The headphones are not listed on Blue tooth device list. The UA43TU8000WXXY does not have a sports option for clearer picture and sound.
My previous Samsung used these headphone without “issue”.

Purchased in July 2020 at JB Hi-Fi for $895.00.

It's a solid performer with some points to keep in mind


This is a good viewing tv as long as you set it up correctly.
Due to the viewing angles, make sure you have the tv at eye level , not too high or too low, and
as long as you are not too far off to the side, the picture quality is excellent.
Some Star Wars film on Disney Plus with dark scenes and a kind of a fog effect are handled poorly.
eg. the beginning of The Rise of Skywalker Episode 9.
A hint for those that hate the little remote, your old Samsung remotes still handle many functions.

TU8000 Crystal UA43TU8000WXXY (43")

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

1 answer

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.
