My 6th TV from Samsung because they do electronics right. This is a sweet model that I am genuinely stunned by. I'm a long time audio-videophile that goes for quality and value. It was difficult waiting 2 years to trying to avoid the early-adopter mistake of jumping too fast. I'm well aware of the QLED and OLED cutting edge sets on the market and came close to purchasing one, but could not justify the additional cost for a 75" set. I would not purchase an OLED due to the problems with longevity. The QLED sets are gorgeous, but expensive (July 1027). However the MU8000 is also gorgeous. We are fast approaching the plateau of what the human eye can discern. The technology is to the point that this set will provide a very close to perfect viewing experience in my subjective humble opinion. The upscaling of 1080 TV is very well done and in most cases produces a better picture depending on the program source. The upscaling of quality Blu-ray disks is outstanding! Oblivion was just superb in 1080p....I could not believe it wasn't 4k in some scenes where I could see every speck of dirt on Cruise's uniform. True 4k is stunning (always depending on the program material!!). There is a 4k video on Netflix called "Columbia Wild Magic" that just filled me awe and delight as the sounds and sights of this incredible landscape came alive on this huge awesome technological marvel. The 75" MU8000 is immersive, brilliant, jet black, very sharp and filled with deep rich color....what else can I say....any more intense and it would be fake looking. I use the Dynamic picture setting (others are Standard, Natural, and Movie) that offers a cooler, higher contrast picture. In one sentence, the picture is fricken awesome! The remote is really nice because its simple. Samsung dispensed with all the dozens of buttons for a smart simple remote that does what it's supposed to do. Part of the magic is in the software of the set and the smart design. Set up was easy, and all the channel searching is gone because they do it in the background while your running a wizard this quite clever, useful and very refined. This is a heavy TV and unless you are physically fit, its best to have someone help you set it up. It's much bigger when you get it home! But such a delightful piece of electronics and I think well worth the 3k for years of enjoyment that it will bring. I'm a cord cutter, so I don't view Cable or Satellite. YouTube from the HUB was outstanding. Netflix is also outstanding, but beware I am hardwired with CAT 6 and have high bandwidth at 120MBs through Comcast Internet into my house. I use a QNAP TVS-471 NAS (Network Attached Storage) with an i7 CPU and 32TB to store my Blu-Ray disks as files. The QNAP is plugged in via HDMI directly into my receiver which feeds the Samsung its HDMI input, but is also connected to my home network so all 4 Samsung TV's can play movies off of it. The NAS is a model capable of 4K streaming, and I have three 4k Blu-ray movies on the way to test this with. I could go on, but suffice it to say....this is a solid, tested technology and sure bet for longevity and for performance!
After purchasing 2 other brands and calibrating the color settings. Samsung had more accurate blacks for my taste without taking the oled plung. I've owned Samsung monitors, phones I'm shocked it took me this long to purchase their tv. If your looking for a great tv search no more. Definitely won't go wrong with this purchase.
