Samsung 65 inch 1080p Curved LEDTV Review [UN65H8000]

Samsung HU 8500-5 Curved TVs are great, yes I said it and you really have to check one out to really see and understand  its benefits. A few months ago,  we here at got our hands on the Samsung Curved HU9000; the company’s first Curved 4K display–gorgeous =. Now the next question you are probably asking yourself is, how does the H8000 differ from the HU9000? For starters the HU9000 is a 4K display while its younger sibling the H8000 is a 1080p LEDTV . Samsung as fully embraced the idea of curved displays and were sensible enough to introduce the curved to other line of their TVs.

The main difference you get is that the H8000 isn’t 4K, doesn’t use a One connector kit ( has the processor built into the unit), has a port for a standard Evolution kit and is also a 3D LEDTV. Yet what you have is an awesome display at 1080p with a great viewing angle that really needs to be seen in person. It is widely know that the best area to seat and enjoy a curved HDTV is center and about 10 feet always— you get this cinema-like viewing angle that can only be described as natural. But if you take a look at the video review below you can seen that off centered positions with this Curved LEDTV does provided a great viewing experience that can’t be derived from a  traditional flat panel experience.

Besides the added benefits of a curved display you also do have Samsung’s latest smartHUB, which I still contend needs an a retooling ( but still works well-known), 3D capability and a simple source selection I think other manufacturers should copy.  Overall Samsung was wise to extend the design philosophy of curved TVs to is 1080p LEDTV line and give consumers a true viewing experience with the Samsung  H8000.
