WE WILL BEAT ANY PRICE From Samsung authorised UK dealer!

The manufacturer who produce more LED televisions than anyone else have once again pulled out all the stops in the form of the quite breathtaking, visually sensational, curved, 78 inch HU8500 series, Ultra HD, 4K resolution, Micro Dim Ultimate, LED backlit, active 3D, ultra slim, narrow bezel TV.

Before you switch on and immerse yourself in the market leading picture quality, or embark upon exploiting its unsurpassed Smart TV and internet, networking capabilities, you will be transfixed by the UE78HU8500 LED TV’s spectacular, curved, ultra thin frame; it is surely the most stunningly beautiful design ever produced.

This exceptional, 78 inch, UHD, 4K, 3D LED Smart TV possesses just about all of the basic – and not so basic - attributes of a range topping halo product, including a full 3840 x 2160 panel for Full Ultra High Def 2160p High Definition TV, a processor for optimizing the full colour spectrum (Wide Colour Enhancer Plus,) UHD Upscaling to transform standard and Blu-ray or other HD signals to ultra HD, a screen panel filter to reduce ambient light reflections to preserve inherent, deep black levels (the Ultra Clear Panel,) a digital filtration circuit for lower quality or SD (standard definition) video material (e.g. normal TV programmes or regular DVD,) a quite superb 1200Hz frequency across the panel’s backlight scanning rate (with huge dividends for producing non-blurred, non-smeary results during fast motion action scenes, such as blockbuster movies and major sporting events) and finally, a process of dynamic contrast adjustment (Micro Dimming Ultimate) which doubles the already impressive micro dimming found with higher Samsung 6 and 7 Series LED TVs for best ever black levels and white balances resulting in stupendous clarity, detailing and colour vividness that here, becomes quite simply the industry benchmark in high end HD LED.

In terms of 3D, the Samsung UE78HU8500TXX adopts the Active, progressive 3D system found in sets serious about delivering the most effective, theatre transposing effect for movies and with 2 pairs of compatible 3D glasses included, free, the UE78HU8500 Full LED TV is at the forefront of 3D TV.

The Samsung UE78-HU8500 series, slim LED smart 4k TV, is set apart from any other high end, flat screen, by the most remarkable list of smart TV and networking features, powered by an amazing new Quad Core Plus processor: with Samsung Smart TV and its Smart Hub, the on screen matrix of available App portals is almost inexhaustible, from Face book and Twitter, through You Tube and BBC i-Player to Skype for cheap, long (or short!) distance video calls with an integrated browser for full App purchase and internet surfing and if it’s out there, it will probably features within the options.

What's more, the spectacular silver and black bezel Samsung UE78HU8500T incorporates a retracting 5MB webcam turning your new LED HDTV into a high def Skype based video phone.

The UE78HU8500 incorporate a new S-Recommendation feature that ingeniously predicts your viewing and web/App preferences and automatically searches broadcast TV programmes, Catch-Up TV and internet app sites in anticipation.

The 78HU8500TXX Samsung also features full DLNA compliance (All-share Play feature) for full digital media file extraction, from USB sticks to Blu-ray players, recorders and systems, through digital cameras, PC, laptop, smart phones (like the new Galaxy III) or tablets (like the i-Pad 3) and it goes without saying, this incredible 78 inch Smart LED 3D TV has WiFi built in as standard for seamless, wireless connection to your home internet (router based) network.

As if all this wasn’t enough – and like a scene from a futuristic science fiction movie – the Samsung UE78HU8500 LED TV showcases voice, motion and face recognition control: you can choose to exercise command over basic channel, picture and sound menus with hand gestures or voice requests, likewise when perusing the Smart Hub App centre whilst face recognition allows quick and easy access to social media apps (like your twitter account) without having to log in, manually.

Finally, the HU8500 series 78 inch LED Smart TV incorporates Samsung’s Smart Evolution upgrade facility which via firmware upgrades (following simple insertion of the appropriate kit) effectively updates the TV chassis to the latest, leading edge standards (e.g. twin to quadruple core transformation) and ensures your 8 Series Samsung full HD LED Smart TV delivers the latest picture quality and internet plus networking reference levels of operation – so you literally get a new, state of the art television every year without having to replace the physical frame and screen – incredible!

Elsewhere, through numerous other product reviews, we have stated that recent market price trends have presented the consumer with the sort of ‘best ever’ value that has never been seen before but with the almost unbelievably brilliant UE78HU8500 78 inch Smart LED, that value for money factor has simply exploded off the scale: the convenience, design, performance and technology at hand is spellbinding and when you consider the amazing discounts and special offers we have unearthed through our site, here, you can be sure of acquiring what is conceivably the greatest flat screen television ever produced at the very cheapest UK price.

Curved probably works at this size

this would make a good investment

Don't see the point of these curved screens, all it does is distorts the image, if i'm paying this sort of money i want a perfect image.

This post is ridiculous...ok this is cheap but do you people really think it's worth getting one this size??!? Buy the 105-inch U8500 and you won't be disappointed...I love both of mine.

So at least ITV are doing something right then.

Has to be cold at this price. Quality tele but you can get much better value for money elsewhere. The prices will come down in time, you've got to be mad to pay this for a tele.

I remember my dad paying around £5000 for 50" panasonic plasma shortly after they first came out. Of course he could have saved a lot of money by purchasing a different TV. But vfm is different to different people. Not everyone is on a mediocre income.

I like to get value for money and this certainly isn't at the moment. This is probably as much a rip off as the iPhone 6.

So do I. But what if you're after a curved UHD TV with this spec?

As topss says above, the first plasma flate screens in the late 1990's were £5000 and usually slightly below SD quality, this is not an unrealistic price for a state of the art TV. Yes the prices will plummet, they always do, but for those that buy the bleeding edge tech are prepared to pay this sort of price.

We all probably wouldn't be enjoying £200 42" LCD TV's if it wasn't for those that pay full original price to get things started.

And as for stating an iphone6 is a rip off is an opinion not a fact, the fact that Apple is the most profitable company in the world (If I recall) they must be doing a lot of things right and a huge number of the world's population would agree and are happy to buy their products. Note that I have never owned any Apple product at all so have no vested interest in that arguement.

Exaclty.

For this spec TV this is a 'hot' price. You shouldn't be comparing it to a lesser TV, because that makes the whole vfm argument invalid. Compare it to a similar spec one.

Plus the mentioning of the iphone is a bit silly. Other than brand kudos (not that I would personally be swayed by that) what does an iphone offer over a similarly price £200 android phone? Spec wise, nothing.

I'd like to see someone offer up a better vfm 79" UHD curved TV. Probably not possible.

However I do agree that in some cases it's not always about price and in a lot of situations there are better vfm products available, and not always cheaper. Not in this case though.

Yup, that's what annoying about HUKD - people seem contradictory on their voting reasoning. One minute they automatically vote cold on Apple, Beats, Bose products simply because of the perceived brand snobbery regardless of the deal and will argue the reason it's cold is because the brand is crap/poor value/overrated/other poor reason, but might vote hot on the cheapest nastiest product like a £0.99p phone charger from eBay that might well catch fire and burn the house down!

Remember folks, voting is a privilege not a right!

for this price I'd want an OLED

For this price you would want at least a 3 year warranty

Nope I disagree. It might be fairly expensive for a TV, but I'd definitely be looking for 60"+ 4k and probably at least go and look at one of these off the back of this if I was in the market for a TV now.

If you keep your TV for 3-5 years, it's about the equivalent of a £70-£100/month rental - that's not exactly 'rich' territory. A lot of people do that much on a Sky subscription. And if it saves a couple of people a grand or two over the prevailing prices I think the site has done it's job admirably.

they give 2 glasses because they are very special and expensive 4k glasses. Just bought 2 dozens at £300 each, I hope will cover some of my guests needs at my next Cristal Champagne party at home.
Why we come here? to look @ some of your faces and buy all you cannot afford and will never in your entire life.
Ahh, by the way my butler is warming up my Lamborghini aventador in the drive, going out in few moments, will keep in touch later for some more bargains while I drive with my brunette and blonde 19 years old friends, one on each side

edit: forgot to mention, we only buy 2006 pink cristal around here bbr.com/pro…PwA
would someone be so kind to post any bargains related to this product at any better price if found?? Yes, times are also getting very tight sometime around here

I spent £200 on a Blaupunkt which can be also kept for 3-5 years. It's about £4/month. So happy.

Sure but I'm guessing not 4k, smaller and generally poorer picture quality etc - not that I'd have a problem glancing at that either, but I wouldn't set my expectations too high and doesn't sound a particularly fair comparison.

People have different priorities; I'd rather take the hit and buy a decent bit of kit if I have to live with it for years as long as it was still (in my opinion) decent value for money.

Couldn't agree more, hence the principle: Ignore the deal if its for a product you are not in the market for, vote hot unless you know of a cheaper price.

People will happily spend £4k on a holiday or £50k on a brand new car, both of which seem pointless to me, but I wouldn't sent them the right to do so, for me, a couple of hours viewing nirvana, a few nights a week for the life time of the tv seems well worth it to me..

ezzer72

Is the Android phone in this comparison similarly priced, OR £200?



No, but that's my point. Personally for me, a mobile phone (for example) is a mobile phone. I look for a price point and find the best spec and vfm for what I want to spend. On the other hand if an iPhone is what you must have (want) then even if it's (for example) £500 and even only slightly cheaper than the next available price, then it's a good deal.

Same with this TV. If this is the size and spec you're after, then it's a good deal, unless you can find it (or equivalent) cheaper. Comparing it to a cheaper TV that's different in most respects other than being a TV, is pretty pointless imo.
