Samsung UN55MU7000 / UE55MU8000 review


A talented mid-ranger that stands out with HDR

Impressively bright HDR pictures ; Good smart TV system ; Attractive design ; Minimal input lag

Some black level issues ; Limited viewing angles ; MU7000s are better value ; No Dolby Vision support

The UE55MU7000 (known as the MU8000 in the UK) is more impactful with the sort of bright 4K, HDR images it was essentially made for than pretty much any rival in its price range. The push for brightness does compromise contrast and backlighting at...

Samsung UE55MU8000 review


How good are mid-range tellies in 2017? This stunner has the answer

Sharp, detailed picture ; Vibrant, but believable colour palette ; Excellent smart TV offering ; Easy to navigate and set up

Viewing angles are tight ; Sound lacks dynamics

Thought mid-range meant middle-of-the-road? This excellent TV will make you think again

Samsung UE55MU8000 review


There's a whole lot to like about this capable Samsung television

Vivid colours across the spectrum ; Natural skin tones ; Sophisticated handling of detail ; Easy-to-use smart hub

Restricted viewing angles ; Lacks dynamism in its sound

A TV ready to give you a fine 4K HDR image at a mid-range price

Samsung UE55MU8000


The Samsung KS7000 won the TrustedReviews award for TV of the Year in 2016.

Samsung proves that you don’t need to spend a fortune to appreciate 4K and HDR.

  (Rating Hidden)

As one of Samsung's pricier 2017 TVs, the 55-inch UE55MU8000 comes with expectations as high as the price tag. You get a raft of the latest features, including Samsung's smart-TV platform and a 4K high dynamic range (HDR) screen. Did it impress in the...

Great TV


Well packaged and excellent delivery. Easy to set up. Excellent quality HD picture. Would recommend this SMART TV, a little pricey but well worth it. Amazon Prime has so much choice.

Outstanding All-Rounder Set for Gamers & Movie Lovers


Did quite a bit of research before purchasing the MU8000. I needed a television that had a low input lag for PS4 Pro 4K gaming and was also equally able to display UHD 4K movies with great results. This set ticked all the boxes and I've not been...
