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
  • 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 for 2 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!!!!
