Samsung’s 65 Inch NU8500 Curved 4K HDR TV Is At 40% Off Right Now
Stephan Jukic – November 21, 2018
When Samsung gets things right with its mid-range 4K TVs, they really deliver some spectacular performance and the 2018 NU8000/NU8500 models are a perfect example of this. Both TVs are essentially identical except that the NU8500 is the curved version of the former, and both TVs deliver some of the best specs we’ve seen from Samsung’s high mid-range models in recent years.
More importantly, they’re both on sale right now in the lead-up to Black Friday, and the 65 inch NU8500 is going for one particularly impressive discount of 39% off its regular price of $1,799.99. This represents a huge savings of just over $700 for a 4K ultra HD HDR TV that’s one of the best in its class for 2018 and into 2019.
Just like its flat-screened twin the NU8000, which we reviewed recently, the NU8500 delivers incredible levels of peak and sustained display brightness and maintains truly fantastic color vibrancy for both HDR and normal TV content while staying luminous. This is a feat that few 4K TVs could pull off prior to the 2018 models and if we compare the NU8500 to older name brand 4K HDR TVs from previous years, it performs better than most ultra-premium models at sheer picture quality.
In addition to these features, the NU8500 also offers up fantastic motion handling, some of the best console and PC gaming connectivity specs you’ll find in a 2018 4K TV and it delivers fantastic black levels and contrast ratio, both of which are also crucial for high quality picture performance and high dynamic range content playback.
Here are some further specs and features for this model:
- HDR Plus: See movies and shows just as the director intended in stunning high dynamic range.
- Ultra Slim Array: The Ultra Slim Array dynamically fine tunes the deepness of the blacks, to the brightness of the whites, for a picture with sensational contrast.
- Dynamic Crystal Color: Discover an expanded world of colors where millions of shades HDTVs can’t replicate make all the difference.*
- Motion Rate 240: Enjoy smooth, crisp action even in the fastest scenes.
- Smart TV with Bixby Voice: A revolutionary way to help find streaming and live TV shows with a Universal Guide, one remote and voice assistance.
In other words, the NU8500 is an almost ultra-premium 4K TV branded as a mid-range model. Now it’s also being priced as a mid-range 4K TV with the huge 65 inch edition in particular getting such a massive discount that it brings its price down to just $1,097.99. In our professional reviewers opinion, this price means a great deal of value and quality per dollar spent.
