The Samsung 50-inch Class Crystal UHD TU-8000 is an HDR high-resolution smart home TV that has excellent picture quality, a nice screen size, and a Crystal Processor that provides much better input lag times than most TVs do. This Samsung TU 8000 Smart TV, Samsung‘s best HDR TV, has a solid color gamut and an impressive variety of viewing angles. That’s why it is one of the best TVs available.

Why We Like It – Samsung 50-inch Class Crystal UHD TU-8000

Performance/Display/Resolution/Refresh

The display performance of this UHD HDR TV gives you more than just a good picture…it gives you crystal clear colors that are fine-tuned to deliver a naturally crisp and vivid screen. Like the LG CX OLED, these Samsung TVs have a fast refresh rate that gives you no lag with the resolution. Plus, the boundless design of the screen is a nice perk, especially in game mode. You can also get impeccable picture quality in our Samsung 55-inch 4K TV review.

Sound

Much like the Sony A8H OLED, this TU 8000 TV has internal speakers that can rival some of the lower-end external ones. Samsung does its best to allow you to enjoy your TV shows, movies, and games, with the best possible internal sound. But adding external speakers might be a way to get to the next level.

Smart Features

There are multi voice smart controls with this TV, which include Alexa and Bixby. Like the Samsung Q80T QLED, this multi smart device hub allows you access to next GEN third-party apps, which offer easy control and a host of other enhancements that will elevate your TV watching experience.

If you would rather not have smart features, you can read our Komodo by Sceptre KU515R 50″ 4K UHD Ultra Slim LED TV to see if it fits your needs.

Ports/Expandability

Plenty of opportunities for expandability here. HDMI and USB ports are available for you to add other smart devices. You could also add your wireless Bluetooth connection, allowing you to do work or even communicate over this smart TV.

Value

This is an excellent price for a solid UHD 4K TV. The smart features alone are worth the low value that the screen size gives you. Along with free shipping and free returns, you can also give this one a try without worrying about sending it back if it doesn’t fit your needs.
