Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Samsung TU8000 Crystal UHD HDR TV promises amazing color, a high contrast ratio, and stellar HDR reproduction at just $500 for a 55-inch set. Samsung also promises a top-tier upscaling 4K system thanks to its 4K processing and an Auto Game Mode that it claims optimizes the screen. The rear of the television isn't particularly impressive, with a full rounded plastic back that doesn't scream “high end”

The Samsung TU8000 is a 4K TV that's packed with useful features. It won't wow you with contrast or color, especially next to comparable Hisense and TCL models. Samsung continues to use its own smart TV platform rather than a third-party system like Amazon Fire TV, Google TV, or Roku TV.

Reviewers from Rtings have found the following[***]:
The Samsung TU8000 is a budget TV in Samsung's 2020 lineup, replacing the Samsung RU8000 from 2019. It's similar to Samsung's entry-level TV in the QLED lineup, the Samsung Q60/Q60T QLED, except its borders are a slightly darker shade of gray. Despite lacking a local dimming feature, it displays deep blacks thanks to its outstanding contrast ratio and remarkable black uniformity. The Samsung is a decent TV for HDR gaming due to its remarkably low input lag and decent response time.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent contrast ratio
  • Excellent black uniformity
  • Very low input lag
  • Good response time
Cons[**]
  • Lacks local dimming

techradar[9]

Sentiment Score[*] 79%
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The TU8000 offers a good performance that requires some managed expectations. Peak brightness is restricted so HDR isn't at its best and colours don't have the pop that you'll see on pricier sets. Samsung has long offered one of the most comprehensive smart TV systems through its Tizen platform. Pretty much every on-demand service you could want is present, including Netflix, Amazon Prime, Apple TV, NowTV, YouTube and Disney Plus.

Pros[**]
  • Superb picture quality
  • Solid motion processing
  • Good HDR performance
Cons[**]
  • Not as bright as last year's TU8000

The UE55TU8000 is the latest in Samsung's 8-series of TVs. It features Crystal Processor 4K, a stylish design and a packed suite of apps. Voice control is through Bixby, as has been standard for the last few seasons, but this time, the option to choose Alexa is also built into the system.

Pros[**]
  • Superb picture quality
  • Solid HDR performance
  • Built-in Bixby voice assistant
