Samsung MU8000 was launched in 2017 and is one of the midrange level Tv of the producer. It has good 4K performance and HDR.
Samsung 55MU8000 comes with a 10 bit panel with HDR10 and has edge-lit illumination. Also, brightness reaches 1000 nits and black levels are good, but not impressive. For image processing, Samsung has used Dynamic Crystal Color engine on MU8000.
It’s a good Tv sitting right above QLED range.
Let’s see what are the best picture settings for Samsung MU8000 (tested on 55MU8000 and 49MU8000):
Turn Eco Solution off and select Picture Mode: Movie.
