£699 For Samsung 55 RU8000 4K Plus Free JBL Bar Studio 2.0-Channel Soundbar with Bluetooth
Don't compromise. The Samsung UE55RU8000TXXU 55" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV with Bixby brings True 4K colour and clarity to your living room. Movies, sports, documentaries – whatever you love to watch – you'll get the brilliant colour, contrast, and brightness you'd expect (and deserve) from the latest 4K display.

Dynamic Crystal Colour gives it a further boost. With over one billion colours (that's 64 times more than a conventional UHD TV), everything looks more natural. No oversaturation or washed out colours, just a lifelike picture with extra depth.

Perfect shadows & highlights

Scary movies should be scary. Discover what's lurking in the shadows with HDR. It perfectly balances contrast and colours, so you see more detail in the shadows and highlights. We won't judge if you hide behind the sofa (honest).

Bixby voice control

The RU8000 has Bixby built-in. Change channels, stream a movie, switch off your smart lights, and more, just by using your voice. And if you've already got a Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa speaker, you can control the TV anywhere in your home.

Technically, yes. HDMI 2.1 compliance can be claimed if any of its features are supported.

In Samsung’s 2019 lineup, the number of HDMI 2.1 features increases in steps, with the entry-level RU7100/7300 series featuring auto low latency mode (ALLM) for responsive game play. The RU8000 series adds dynamic metadata and, for gamers, variable refresh rates. The Q60, Q70, Q80, Q90, and Q900 series boost frame rates to 120fps for 2K and 2.5K content, and the Q90 and 8K Q900 series boosts 4K frame rates to 120fps. The 8K series also supports 8K at 60fps through its HDMI inputs.
Is that the next version of nu8000?

Just FYI that you need to buy 55”+ for 120hz on the q60

The Xbox one X can already utilise HDMI 2.1 features like ALM and VRR.
Is it worth paying extra for the QLED version? My old Samsung 40” LED is starting to have major white lines and burn in, which makes me want QLED even more.

I'm sticking to pc for the time being.
Great TV
Can't beleive no one has mentioned this, but the first thing you should check is DisplaySpecifications.com.

Here you go LINK

And also, this TV stinks, it's Edge-lit. *Be aware*
All HDR sets do HDR10 afaik. Samsung and many other manufacturers also have HDR10+ which is a free equivalent to Dolby Vision and is supported by the Xbox One X.

One of the few reasons I would say buy an OLED is if you want Dolby Vision support if you own Blurays.

For gaming HDR10+ is the way to go as its license free whereas Dolby Vision costs money to license. The Xbox One X also supports Dolby Vision.

I had to do some serious digging before finding this out, but the Q90 - which is the highest spec 4K TV of Samsungs - does not do 4k at 120fps at 4:4:4. It's only at lower ranges and this info is well hidden. I can repost the link if I come across it but it's the reason I didn't pull the trigger on it.

The LG SM9800PLA is the only 4K TV, to my knowledge, which does have full 2.1 spec.

Unfortunately, I had that TV and sent it back because - whether it was faulty or just really poor - the blooming was HORRIBLE.

Blooming horrible!
if you are paying £700,pay £192 more and buy the QLED 55Q7F model posted recently.it will be worth every single penny of that extra £192 I guarantee.

It was harder to laugh about when you'd spent £2k on it, I promise you!

What exactly are you going to feed it with 4K 120fps 4:4:4 from? Even dual £1000 Nvidia cards would struggle with that.

Sounds like faulty. If you are used to OLED you can notice very - and I mean very - slight blooming on rare occasions but for FALD this is as good as it gets. It even handles really difficult things like star fields amazingly well.

Best setup is with local dimming and contrast enhancer set to max for me and all the Eco settings off and the AI on.
Edited by: "Tony_DR" 8th Oct
With PS5 and Xbox, er Two coming out in the next year or so, I want to future proof as much as possible. The point is that the spec is not full 2.1 and for that reason I'm not going to go around telling people that it is. I don't want compatibility issues with an expensive TV that I bought specifically not to have any with next-gen.

I'm personally sensitive to blooming and other defects. I've read multiple reviews that complain about blooming on the LG and I've seen enough evidence of it, both personally and otherwise, to not want to take the risk any further.

A lot of it comes down to personal preference, but it's not right to say it's not an issue for everyone just because it's not an issue for you, faulty set or otherwise.
Did Samsung get their software on 2019 models update sorted ? Thought they'd only given something like 100mb for the software & there wasn't enough room to allow for updates..
