Good picture quality. Everything else absolutely sucks. Huge disappointment.
Pros: - The picture quality is quite good, but nothing that will blow you away. - The thin frame looks nice. Cons: - The TV does not get very bright and it's quite reflective, so it's not good for daytime watching. - The smart interface software is so bad that it crashes and freezes on a daily basis...

Samsung 55-Class TU8000 Crystal UHD TV (UN55TU8000FXZA) Review
It’s much brighter, has far better color performance, and its Android TV interface offers a wide selection of apps, along with Google Cast. If you can spend a bit more, meanwhile, the Hisense H9G and TCL 6-Series both offer even better, brighter pictures. The Samsung TU8000 series of TVs offers loads of features and a decent picture for an affordable price, though you can get better color and contrast from competing Hisense and TCL models

It had a pretty decent picture in my opinion. No complaints.

Beware of specs on this page.
The specs on this are confusing because this Amazon page does not correspond to the specs on other websites. For instance it says 60 fps here but 120 fps elsewhere. After research the 55" and larger are 120 fps, the smaller are 60 fps. Also it notes 2 HDMI here and 3 elsewhere. I believe this is als...

Is X900h 65 inch for $999 new still a good deal?
I paid around 300$ more than a Samsung TU8000 I tried for a week and the difference was night and day. I think this tv hits the price point of diminishing returns as you said it's twice the price for the CX.
So far So good :)
Got it yesterday set it up last night setup was pretty easy. I was a little wary of a couple of things, the details on amazon weren't really clear on whether there was Samsung tv plus and also if the T.V. was YouTube TV app capable. The answer to both questions is yes, they are both available when I...

Great TV at a great price
I really like this TV overall and am happy with my purchase. I ran some 4K demo videos through the built-in YouTube app and the 4K picture is absolutely beautiful. The one minor gripe is that the blacks aren't truly black, as is the case with all LCD screens, but unless you're going to pony up the m...

Can anyone explain the mysterious Samsung TU9000 to me?
When I purchased Samsung MU6300 for my college, I compared it to MU6500 and the higher numbered variants and the only difference I noticed was brightness and perhaps some contrast but no such improvements over colour and else. So if you can't find any reviews for TU9000, I would suggest that you compared TU8000 and 8500 or whichever TU models you can find to compare in next to next Rtings comparison. You'll find they are all really the same besides some HDR points (more brightness gets you better HDR), perhaps some contrast or panel type but even then a similar series does not have incredibly huge differences besides brightness. So in conclusion:- Check lower end models and see what differentiates them.

Amazing TV
This tv is awesome. Thought it had 4 hdmi ports, but I bought a splitter so that should fix the problem. Games and movies look amazing. Also, if your soundbar is Samsung it will find or request to connect to the tv instantly.

How is the Sony X900H?
I tried a Samsung TU8000 and God was it awful. For 300$ more this upgrade was worth it. It seems in order to get a TV that does it all you need to spend upwards of 2k which was not in my budget.
