Recycling Batteries Responsibly

  • The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.

  • The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk

  • All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.

Benefit 4 Feature 1
  • Multiscreen viewing

    Samsung's Multi-Link Screen³ brings a broader level of multitasking to your viewing experience as it provides the ability to view multiple screens at once.

  • Quad Core Plus

    The new Samsung Smart TV experience is lightning fast on the HU8500 thanks to the Quad Core Plus processor which is up to two times faster than Quad Core, delivering quicker loading and navigation. The powerful processor significantly boosts performance with speedier access to Smart features and true multitasking capabilities.

    S Recommendation with Voice Interaction⁴ lets you discover more of the TV you love by suggesting what's new to watch based on what you like. It intelligently learns your preferences; the more you watch the smarter it gets.

  • Smart Hub

    The industry's reference Smart platform⁵ just got better. The leading Smart TV experience is now even more powerful, with faster access to Smart features, true multitasking and an intuitive interface.

  • Games Panel

    The exciting new Games panel lets you and your family enjoy a wide variety of fun games instantly on the largest screen in your home, without the need for any additional hardware.

    The new Samsung Smart Control combines a premium metallic ergonomic design with motion recognition, a touch pad and a new button console to provide you with simpler, more accurate content selection and ultra-responsive control.

A Closer Look

  • Everything looks super-sharp, no matter the source.

    Through a UHD up-scaling process, the UHD picture engine converts Full HD, HD and lower resolution sources to nearly-UHD clarity.

    A Closer Look
  • Stay in touch.

    A built-in camera pops up for easy Skype™ sessions with family and friends, or for controlling your TV with gestures. When it's not in use, the camera stays hidden to keep the beautiful, clean curve of your TV.

    A Closer Look
  • With its screen floating above a metal plate, this TV frames whatever you're watching so beautifully, it's as if nothing else exists.

    A Closer Look
  • It's like you're there.

    With ultra-high-definition sharpness, colour accuracy and picture clarity, absolutely nothing comes between you and the most mind-blowingly vivid viewing experience.

    A Closer Look
  • The screen is uniformly curved.

    The screen is curved at just the right angle to provide the optimal viewing distance in your living room.

After a bad start....

I opted for the 55" and it looked stunning, one problem, it kept switching off. After a visit from Samsung the TV was declared scrap and therefore I opted to upgrade to the 65".

I have to say this has been perfect and looks stunning in your room, even turned off. As for the 55", come on Samsung, you can do better!!!!!

UHD The Only Way To Go!

After many years of only purchasing Plasma screen technology, I decided to invest in a Samsung UHD TV. It does not disappoint and there is no lookingbackwards.

The UHD 4K HU9000 is fully loaded and connectivity is a dream. Everything that I have thrown at it in terms of format, the Samsung excels and hits the ball right out of the park. It is hard to fault this TV, so only the price tag can be the stumbling block for some.

Samsung UE65HU8500 review

Interestingly, the HU8500 adopts a modular design. As 4K standards are far from cast in stone, Samsung has coupled the screen to an external Smart Evolution One Connect tuner box. It's here that all sources connect, including aerial and twin satellite...
