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.

    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.

A Closer Look

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

    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.

Great screen!

At first the curve seems like a gimmick. But after a few hours use, you dont notice the screen curving unless you look at the top or bottom of the frame.

Upscales 1080p to UHD very well with little issues. Not perfect but from a normal viewing distance its as good, if not better, than a HD tv. partly due to the upscaling but also due to the newer technology in the screen itself.

The Awesome 65HU8500 Curved TV

I bought this tv for two reason,1, my last 3 TVs have been Samsung and have never let me down, 2, the reviews were excellent. I have had it now for2 weeks and have tested every feature and different input sources.

The main outcome of these tests are that this TV is unbelievable, the picture quality is amazing, skin tones are perfect, blacks are black and on my tv I have not noticed any clouding on dark backgrounds. Blu Ray movies look better than ever, gaming on Xbox One, 360, PS4 are amazing and I must say I disagree with some of the reviews which state high lag when gaming, I have had no lag issues, but this could be down to firmware updates. 3D is awesome, Sky HD looks good, but some SD channels can look bad if it is showing a poor video quality programme. The smart function is impressive and very responsive, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, iplayer all look excellent. I have tested the sound and for TV speakers are good, but I will always recommend a AV setup, if you have the space and dont mind having speakers on the wall, and an understanding wife!!! If you can afford this awesome television, I would highly recommend you go out and buy this, you will not be disappointed.

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!!!!!
