Samsung UE55RU8000 review

Key features
  • 55-inches
  • LCD
  • 4K Ultra-HD
Reviewed

When it comes to LCD TVs the RU8000 range should be the best that Samsung has to offer and there are plenty of buzzword-sounding features to back it up. Dynamic Crystal Colour, Supreme Motion and Dynamic Black Equalizer could make all the difference or you may be better off spending less on one of Samsung's cheaper LCD sets. Read our review of the 55-inch Samsung UE55RU8000 (sometimes called the UE55RU8000TXXU) to see if it's worth the sum of its buzzwords.
