    great tv

    Bought this TV 2 months now. Great picture quality. The built in speakers could have been better though. Also option for different types of apps are very limited. I used a sony smart tv before. That had access to higher number of apps through the app store built in. But giving a 5 star beacause of the super picture quality and the ambient light sensor, which works great. Also motion rate option works great, no blurring of picture with high spead movie scenes.

    Nice Smart TV, could use some improvements

    This is a very nice TV and has a great picture. However the biggest issue I have is the smart remote is not lit. It makes it difficult in dark/low light situations while in bed.

    Good value

    Overall it’s a great product that offers good value. The navigation the input and all of the set up works very well, the whole interface is very seamless. The only downside however is that there seems to be quite a few fIrmware issues with TV integration in SmartThings. When the TV is turned off for more than 2 minutes the TV does not offer standby option to allow you to turn the TV back on Via SmartThings it just shows that the devices off line until you manually power on the TV

    Amazing TV at a great price!

    This Samsung RU8000 49” Television is an amazing television. The clarity of the picture is very clear and bright with rich colours. The build quality of the television is better than other brands, and the sound of the built-in speakers are WAY better than any other TV brands. Samsungs built-in speakers have a bass to it’s speakers. They are very clear. The price of this TV is already a good deal, especially when there is a lot of features. Samsung has been one of my favourite brands, and it has impressed me once again!

    Clarity, and color is more than expected. Design, with border to border picture is clean and welcomed. Apps are easily downloaded. Do find the remote a bit lacking, as we are use to individual buttons for each function.
    Excellent choice for us to replace a 10 year old flat screen.

    This TV is the best I’ve ever had

    Samsung makes really good quality electronics. I bought my TV and was so pleased with it and its qualities, that I also bought a Samsung S10 cell phone, and Samsung dvd player. Which I can control my tv and dvd player through my cell phone. My tv is state of the art and while I’m streaming it never slows down.

    Extremely happy with the size and best Bang for your buck. I couldn’t believe the step up in quality from what I was previously watching to now, it’s like I was missing out on half of the worlds detail LOL. Researched many tvs and this was rated high for gaming and I must say, my experience has been incredible and the detail is breathtaking.

    This was so easy

    I set this up plugged in my Bose sound, my Tivo, and my Blu-ray. Went through about ten minutes of set up with the TV. Can control the Bose with my tv and my TiVo remotes this had not worked with my previous tv very frustrating to have to use a separate remote to control the sound. Also got to off my firetv stick. And was watching tv on the internet without even knowing it. I highly recommend this for anyone who has cut the cable for what ever reason. Picture is awesome. Very happy with this purchase.

    Shows why Samsung is where it is today

    We have 3 Samsung TV’s in the home and this 4th one is completely in a different league in terms of quality and experience. We got this one for our bedroom and I am elated with my choice! I was torn between the QLED and this one but I am so happy with my choice. The colors, brightness and quality of picture is excellent. I also really like the minimalist remote control compared to the one with the other Samsung’s. It was very easy to set up and get running. Yet to try voice commands. The depth of colors is very comfortable. The WiFi connectivity and additional ports make it easy to connect to apps and other sources. It is an excellent 4K televising for the price. Great addition to the home along with Samsung washing machine, dryer and refrigerator. Keep up the good work and will continue being your customer. Looking forward to trying the Samsung cooktop oven in our next home.

    Extremely responsive tv

    This television is a great tv for gaming with a very low input lag. The 49 inch model however has half the frame refresh speed as the 55 and above sizes. As a game enthusiast I am satisfied with product but would have preferred if the box was clear on the frame rate support.

    Great picture and many features.

    I have had the TV for about 1 month. I had a small problem setting up the air stations. I have both cable and antenna. I went on line with the Samsung Help Center and allowed the technician to control the setup and within a few minutes the on air stations were available. Great Service and made me very happy. I am still learning all the features that are included in this TV. I find that the voice command is very helpful to learning and using the many features of this TV. The picture is excellent and the sound is pretty good even without a sound bar. I would recommend this TV to others for purchase. Very satisfied with the TV.

    The TV is great, the features, the color, LOL the size. This is my biggest TV I have ever owned. It is great. I watched GoT and loved it. To see so much more detail in everything!! Awesome. Set up was easy. Loading Netflix, Vudu and even my blue ray player no problem. Is there a way to lump together the items I use on the menu, to the left side or something? How do I change the voice and the speed of that voice on startup?
    I shopped long and hard before buying this TV. I compared all the features and the quality of the TV. I have a Samsung phone, tablet, so I like your products. I am currently shopping for a sound bar to make it even better. Keep up the great work and products. Thank you

    49″ UHD with stunning visual

    The 49″ UHD from Samsung (RU8000 series) is a very sleek and beautifully designed tv. Perfect for the guest room or a smaller size family room, the 49″ is visually stunning and perfect for binge watching that series you want to catch up or for a AAA action movie from the house of mouse. The only drawback is the instructions and navigation can be a bit overwhelming if not used to a smart TV with so many options but that can be overcome. If shopping for a UHD in this size/price point, the Samsung UHD 49″ is a dream come true.

    I have three smart Samsung TVs and this one the latest purchased has an amazing picture. Was easy to hook up.

I replaced a plasma tv with this one and as good as that picture was it is nothing compared to this one.

    This TV has excellent picture quality. Deep blacks and vibrant colors. The design is also beautiful with near edge to edge viewing. One feature that I did not know existed until I set up the TV was a Beta software connection to Xfinity via my Wifi network. I can watch Cable TV without having to connect to cable or have a cable box attached. Very happy with the purchase and would recommend. The picture does take some adjusting as out of the box settings are a bit too extreme.

    Great value for the money

    This unit replaced a set we’d had for over 15 years in our bedroom.
    The screen is larger than what we had before but the unit actually takes less space, as it is super flat.
    We installed it in 10 minutes; attaching the legs took the longest!
    Picture and sound quality are excellent.

    Went in to the store just looking for something cheap to replace my old TV. I couldn’t have picked a better television to purchase. It was reasonably priced compared to the other competitors and the picture quality is outstanding. Ive never owned a smart TV before but I am familiar with them, and I can say Samsung hit it out of the park with this design and functionality. Definitely will be going with Samsung in the for see able future . The only complaint I have is, I should have bought a bigger one!!

    Really blown away with this TV

    Between this TV and 7100 Siri Samsung TV unhappy that I picked the 8000 series. I do CA big difference from watching TV to gaming to streaming movies and overall quality of the picture. And as well with the 8000 series TV is Really cool that how you could have a voice control on T TV remote to type everything down. Back in JanuaryI bought the 7 100 series Samsung TV Nu Series. We were Really happy about that TV show from now on I will be sticking to Samsung TV to 8000 blows my mind. Thank you Samsung for creating such a wonderful TV

    I Initially was going to buy the Samsung 7 series and after a bit of research I opted to buy this TV which I can safely say was not a mistake and I’m very happy with the 8 series And I’m glad I spent the extra 250 to get this one. The Samsung 8 series tv offers an exceptional viewing experience and has great color and is easy to navigate through. Its smart features make it easy to use with my Samsung phone and I absolutely love the sleek design. I will definitely recommend Samsung’s tvs to anyone looking to buy a TV and I will definitely be buying TVs from Samsung in the future.
