Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The TU8500 is a reassuringly affordable mid-range UHD TV. It's not particularly slim, or pretty, although the bezel is certainly minimal. Connectivity comprises three HDMI ports, plus two USB ports, analogue video and stereo inputs for legacy gear. The set comes with two remotes: a regular pointer with dedicated buttons for Netflix, Amazon Video and Rakuten TV, and a more streamlined alternative.
