So you’re looking for a TV with a difference, a TV with size and a curve but you’re not quite ready to commit to a 4K screen yet. The answer to that is simple, get your hands on Samsung’s curved UA65H8000 TV set, a member of the 8 Series from the company that fits all of your requirements.
How so? Well, this 65-inch display features a curve of 4200R as well as a Full HD resolution. That’s 1920 x 1080 for those keeping score at home. The Samsung UA65H8000 makes use of the Ultra Clear Panel tech that makes Samsung’s TVs such a pleasure to look upon and there are a few more features in place besides.
Features like the 3D HyperReal Engine – that’s right, this massive screen is 3D-capable as well – and a Clear Motion Rate of 1000MHz. Samsung’s M/D Ultimate and Mega Contrast additions are also in place, as are Wide Color and Auto Depth Enhancers. Not too shabby at all.
Which brings us to sound, something else that Samsung routinely impresses with. The UA65H8000 has 40W in total, spread between 10W left and right speakers and a 20W woofer set up in a down-firing configuration. Dolby and DTS sound tech makes its home within this screen, the standouts being Dolby’s MS11 and DTS Premium Sound 5.1.
So, curved, HD, 3D and great sound. Sounds like a Smart TV and it is. The Smart Hub, app, social and fitness support is part of the Samsung UA65H8000 and you’ll also be able to browse the web while you’re at it. Let’s not forget voice control either.
There are four HDMI, three USB and a single Component port to play with, as well as two Composite inputs. Ethernet and WiFi Direct are also features of this fully-featured screen.
Add in the whole collection of Samsung software features and you have a whole lot of TV – and that’s without even considering the size and quality of the panel, which is fantastic on its own.
