TV broken after 17 months

Smr827 5/22/2019

I purchased this TV 17 months ago and it's already broken. The screen went completely black and the standby light went off. My warranty has expired which I can deal with since I have an extended warranty to with my credit card company but trying to get help for the service center has been almost impossible. I would never buy a Samsung TV again.

Jon L 5/12/2019

I've had the TV for a few weeks now, and it's perfect. I already have a NU8000 55" for the living room, so I already knew this would be a perfect replacement for our aged TV in the bedroom. The One Connect box is nice to have (as the TV is wall mounted and eliminates the need to run HDMI cables behind the wall), though I wish the power source came from the one connect box. Great picture, deep blacks. Looks fantastic on the wall.

Broken already

BIGEMANN1 1/24/2019

I purchased this tv in May of 2018 , and it is already broken . It comes on to a black screen with sound . It then shuts on and off with sound , but still a black screen around 20 times before a picture will show . Then it plays fine until you turn it off for a period of time , when you turn it back on it repeats the same symptom . I have called the Samsung people . They had me do numerous things that did not solve the problem . They even sent a tech out , now its worse than before . I really hate I purchased it !!!!!!

Marcus6640 3/25/2018

So far I love these TV's. I also have a 65" model as well. I love the apps which give us access to Amazon Prime Video, between that & Netflix we have an almost unlimited supply of movies. Setup wasn't too bad, instructions on features could be more detailed. Good selection of settings for customization. Great picture, color, clarity etc.

Constant Internet Issues

NonyaBiz1 2/4/2018

I want to love this tv but I just can't anymore. Ever since I got it I've had wifi connectivity issues. No, it's not my router or connection because every other device in my home works just fine. I hate it, I really do. I wish I could return it but I can't. I bought it because of it's "smart" features but they are useless without an internet connection. Even voice commands are unavailable due to this problem. Another issue is the inability to play 4k movies through a hard drive using the usb connections. They lag so much that it's not even worth it to try.

As good as the store shows it to be; Easy hook-up

tvwatcherchris 2/1/2018

We all know (assume) that the TVs on display in the store are hooked up to some super-duper video to show off their ability and that we will never get that resolution at home... or so I thought! After getting the TV home and installed, which was a breeze with the new cable management & device hook-up box (Why white cords?? A pair of black cords would disappear better.) Fired it up and it found my cable box on HDMI 1, labeled it and went right to it. Next I turned on my blue-ray, it found it on HDMI2, labeled it and went to it. BAMM! Set-up done that fast, oh and I bought an open-box unit, missing the owner's manual and quick start guide. No problem as the Samsung website has easy links to find both and FAQs as well. After a few hours clicking channels - everything from old John Wayne B&W movies on TMC to NatGeo rain forest macro-video bug shows I can tell you it is better than the store display and better than I ever imagined it possibly could be. Just watch on old B&W cowboy movie from the 50's - you'll now what I mean! Well the next step was watching a blue-ray: Moana. Oh my golly was that sharp! Next was old regular dvds and yep... amazing. Even things like the 80's sit-coms are amazing. Sound quality is good, 40w speakers push enough clear sound from family room to kitchen while cooking -53ft from TV to cooktop. DVD/Blu-Ray is connected direct to my receiver and the old school surround sound system as well as direct to the tv speakers, that system works great, no issues. The next day I was scrolling on my cell phone's (Samsung S8) photo gallery and the cell offered to sync to the TV . One button and done. Kinda fun to see your family photos on 49" screen! Next was hooking to the web; it found the router and I entered our password. Next stop YOUTUBE ! Yep amazing especially if you watch a 4K channel. I'm mid 50's and pretty much not tech savy so I was worried about hooking up this TV but it really is plug and play. Summary: AMAZING picture, easy hook-up, more than acceptable sound power and quality. I am so satisfied with this TV that I would have happily paid MSRP! Obviously I paid less but I think it is amazing and even at MSRP, I consider this TV beyond expectations. Thank you Samsung; nice work!

Overall great tv, but one huge flaw.

katers 1/21/2018

I really like this tv. Both picture and sound quality are great. The one flaw that is going to ultimately make me return this is, is the position of the legs. They are so far apart that it makes if difficult to find a good stand to put the tv on.

pretty good, but...

DrGuido 1/9/2018

The manual rivals the NYCity phone book so having it as an E-manual makes no sense....Give us something to put in our lap to read AS we try to wade through the features. I had a 720 Plasma from Brand X that was (slightly) ahead of its time and the picture colors/depth/hue were easier to refine. The 4K is startlingly good at times but faces are all too often flat and/or pasty. This was a gift so for me it's a great value and that it's a Smart TV is a big plus over Brand X but while I wouldn't be very negative I would not be singing the praises if I had come out of pocket for this...and without the Sound Bar the TV sound is unexceptional at best. All in all, Good...not Great.

tobytobytobay 12/22/2017

The last time I got a 4K tv I was super pumped, but unfortunately with the display lag I couldn't play a single game on it. I just got the Samsung MU8000 a few days ago and I am blown away by it. The picture is incredible a doesn't compromise any display lag for gaming, the reaction time feels non existent. If you have PS4 Pro (the better of the two choices, or an Xbox one X then this tv is something you should treat yourself to. Furthermore the interface and the applications are great and work wonderfully.

Not for the hearing impaired.

HearingImpaired 12/17/2017

Generally, we are pleased with this TV. However, I am hearing impaired and must use supplemental audio output; my wife has normal hearing. In order for us to enjoy programming simultaneously, we must have the "Multi-output Audio" function. When I try to select this function, a pop-up message says "This feature isn't available". Despite several attempts, Technical Support was unable to help us resolved this issue.

FSUfan1 12/17/2017

During cyber Monday, there are so many options for televisions. We have been doing a lot of research on brand, size and features. This TV had all the features we would need. Consumer Report also gave this model number a great review. I would recommend to others.

Great Picture & Value

Techie99 11/24/2017

We purchased on Samsung 49" Class MU8000 4K UHD TV two weeks ago and it was easy to install and setup with our Xfinity service and our wireless network. I had researched Smart TV and Xfinity/Comcast streaming service and learned that Samsung and Comcast had an agreement to support streaming. Unfortunately what I discovered after installing the Xfinity streaming app from Samsung Hub is that it's a beta application for 4k only, and 2nd, the only available 4k content is old On-demand Outlander and 1 other series. They offer nothing new and the standard Xfinity TV Streaming app that's available for Smart phones & Laptop computers isn't available on the Samsung hub. I also checked out Netflix for 4k content and quickly learned that it's difficult to find with the app. But I did find so information on the internet that highlighted Netflix 4k content and if you search for specific titles you can wait it, but again, it's limited. While I like the quality of the Samsung picture, at this time I can't recommend any 4k TV until there is available content.

Seabee7Joe 9/26/2017

The 4K picture is amazing. The remote easily paired with my Samsung sound system, PS4, and the home wireless system. I am impressed with the features and ease of operation. The design of the tv compliments my home furnishings. The connections are simplified with the remote connection device and the wires are hidden from view.

daeman 9/22/2017

Clever design with hub that contains all connections, you don't have a bunch of cables connecting to the tv. The thickness of screen is very thin. Remote has full functionality with a few buttons. You can connect a usb harddrive/multi station with videos and tv will play them. Works well with Roku 4 with plex.

Oldedude 9/21/2017

We upgraded from a 10 year old flat panel that was 32 inches. When we looked at new TVs the picture on the Samsung was far beyond others that cost way more. Our biggest concern was: will the TV perform at home at the store? Well... it performs beyond our wildest expectations. It even makes the evening news better because we have such a great picture. We have watched recorded movies from cable, OnDemand movies and streamed from Amazon. All with great picture and sound. When we want another TV in the house it will be a Samsung!

gbkirsch 8/24/2017

We created a home theater around this 82 inch 4K TV. The One Connect box worked very well with my installation and is frankly brilliant. The remote is brilliant also and the TV seems smarter than anything else I've seen. Its priced well, has an amazing picture, vibrant colors, great contrast and it has brought TV and movie watching to life for us. Its a little difficult to want to leave the house!!! Football and sports on this are incredible!!

Excellent TV without spending a fortune

jamtwo02 4/6/2017

I replaced my Panasonic Plasma TV with this model Samsung. The picture quality is far superior to the Panasonic, (probably because of UHD). Installation was a PITA because the spacers provided were too long, and the M8 1.25 45mm screws did not screw in far enough to mount the TV properly. Almost lost the TV when the wall brackets fell off while installing on the mount. Re-engineered the spacers by cutting off approx. 1/8 inch. Reinstalled the brackets and gave them a few hard tugs and pulls before trying to reinstall it on the wall. Success!!! Set up for the Satellite Box, DVD player and the Network was extremely easy. The One Connect Mini made attaching the DVD, Satellite Box and Sonos soundbar very easy, and reduced the number of devices I had to use in order to get my components up and running. Samsung may want to reconsider min and max screw sizes because if a 45mm screw fails, there is no way that a 43mm screw will work.. Or, they may want to take a look at the length of the spacers provided. The speakers leave a lot to be desired, but that is true with any flat panel I have owned. Overall, an excellent product.
