Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Great TV, picture quality is beyond my expectation. Would recommend this TV for anyone looking for a 120hz
From Samsung: High Dynamic Range
The 65" UN65MU8000 demonstrates why TV experts are so excited about 4K and HDR (High Dynamic Range). Relying on tried-and-true TV engineering instead of expensive cutting-edge technologies like quantum dots, the UN65MU8000 produces images that will make your current TV literally pale in comparison.
High peak brightness is an essential ingredient to deliver the full intensity of HDR-enhanced video sources, and the UN65MU8000 gets as bright as Samsung's top-of-the-line model from last year. Even in a bright room this set's picture looks ultra-crisp and colorful.
The '65MU8000's vibrant picture deserves the highest quality signals you can feed it. For now and the forseeable future, the best available 4K source is a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray player. Hollywood will release hundreds more movies on Ultra HD Blu-ray this year, and most of those discs will also be HDR-enhanced. There are 4K/HDR web streaming options, too, including Netflix® and Amazon Instant Video.
But you don't need native 4K content to be knocked out by the UN65MU8000's picture. Samsung's engineers made 4K upconversion a top priority while developing this set's video processing circuitry. UHD Upscaling automatically upconverts any signal to match the screen's 4K resolution. All your current video sources will look better than ever.
Samsung has a nifty way of simplifying hookup, especially if you plan to wall-mount your TV. Instead of connecting your Blu-ray player, cable box, and other video sources directly to the UN65MU8000, you connect them to the supplied One Connect Mini switching hub. A single cable connects the compact hub to the TV, for an uncluttered look.
When it comes to smart TV features, Samsung's set of streaming video and music apps is hard to beat. And new, improved iOS® and Android® apps will let you receive live notifications from the UN65MU8000 and help you locate content.
The smart remote's built-in microphone and the TV's voice control function really simplify everyday use. Your voice is all you need to turn the TV on or off, change channels, or adjust the volume. You can also navigate menus and launch apps, all without taking your eyes off the TV screen.
Unsure if your network can handle demanding tasks like 4K streaming? Check out our wireless router buying guide. If you haven't upgraded your hardware in the last few years, a new router will offer big improvements in range and speed.

Great TV, picture quality is beyond my expectation. Would recommend this TV for anyone looking for a 120hz
Great t.v. Already had 60" version from last year, so had to get this one for my basement. Picture is excellent, controls intuitive, family loves it, grandson plays video games on it too. Sound improvement over the 60" also.
Pros: size, brightness, sound, price
Cons: non found so far
The TV is everything I expected and wanted. In honesty the remote control can be a little intimidating because it has very little instruction. The Crutchfield service wad superb.
This is a very good TV, great picture and good sound system. As with all electronic things they get more and more complicated. This TV is not exception but it is a sign of the times. But some things did get easier like APPS selection, they are easily selectable. Some of the other features are not too easy to get to.This is probably the best TV for the price in the upper performance range without getting into much higher priced sets with OLED, QLED etc .
Pros: GOOD VALUE FOR UPPER PERFORMANCE SETS
Cons: IT IS A LEARNING CURVE TO OPERATE
great color deep and rich very clear and a good value
Very nice picture and love the features!
Pros: Easy set up. Streamlined remote is great
Cons: Silver/chrome trim on bottom of TV is not applied seamlessly
Great picture, fast delivery, easy set up. Another great product!
Easy to use. Easy to hook up. I had some issues with the getting familiar with settings such as dynamic, standard, movie and normal viewing. As well as the color but once you settle on the settings it is great viewing. Great product for the $$$.
Beautiful television. The connection module however is an odd required necessity that has a somewhat flimsy connection port on the back of the TV.
Pros: Colors and simplicity of settings
Cons: Connection box needed to connect sources
Great picture, sound quality. Very easy to set up and use. Very happy with the purchase. And love the Crutchfield support!
Pros: see above
We love our new TV! We loved our old TV too, our first flat-screen that we purchased from Crutchfield in 2009, only the cat decided to knock it over and break it. I'm convinced my husband trained the cat to do so. The good news is that TVs have come down in price over the last 8 years so we were able to get a bigger better model for less than what we paid in 2009. I highly recommend buying the anti-tip kit too. ;-) As usual, the service at Crutchfield was stellar; we make all of our electronics purchases there.
Fast service. Great picture, easy setup
Pros: Good pic
Cons: None so far
We had a flood in our home and had to replace our TV's and I went with 2 of the Samsung UN65MU8000 and I am so happy with my choice. The picture is very crisp and I like the difference of having 4K from our last TV's. I went with the Samsung over the Sony because I liked the picture a little better. A good choice and even better because of the price.
Pros: Picture and ease of set up.
Cons: Not sure yet
This is an awesome TV. I've been a longtime fan of Sony and Panasonic TV's, but this TV has blown me away. I watxhed a DVD of a B&W film the other day, and the upscaling was unreal! Watching a 4k blu ray (Mad Max Fury Road) is immense! You feel like you are there! Great TV with all the apps - Netflix, HBO - and super easy to use!
Pros: Amazing picture, easy to use, cool remote
This is my third Samsung tv. I upgraded from a 46 inch set I purchased five years ago. After exhaustive research this set offered the best mix of features and value. I am very pleased with the picture. The tv is also very responsive. Menus come right up, powers up quickly and channels change quickly. I am not a fan of Samsung's newer streamlined remote. I also had/have issues with the voice control functionality. Still I give the set 5 stars because my old Samsung remote works fine and has full functionality. I ordered an extra remote from a different online retailer. Did I need a 65 inch tv? No. I don't actually watch a great deal of tv and I only have basic cable which I will likely soon discontinue based on Spectrum taking over Time Warner. Nonetheless when I do watch I want to be wowed and immersed and this set does that. DVDs look great as does streaming Netflix and Amazon, which both are working great. Consequently I have none of the buyer's remorse or letdown which sometimes accompanied a larger somewhat self-indulgent purchase. My Crutchfield advisor Otis was great and shipping was quicker than expected (ordered Friday morning and had in upstate NY on Monday, not Wednesday as predicted). Crutchfield also offers 60-day price protection which covers me through the markdowns and sales leading up to the Super Bowl which is another great time to buy a tv. The set also look great. Sharp lines, minimalist straightforward presentation. Highly recommended.
Pros: Features Price/value Samsung quality/reliability
Cons: Remote Voice contols
Excellent picture, attractive design.
Simply exceed my expectations. The picture is amazing. This TV is everything I want and more. I have 4 more TV's ,but this one stands up .
Pros: Design, simplicity of the remote control , the picture is outstanding, pleasantly surprise with the sound quality . I just love it.
Cons: No cons
Awesome TV. I love Crutchfield and their products. This is the 2nd TV I've bought from them. The picture is great.
Pros: Picture Quality Sound Quality Easy Setup
Cons: None So Far
Amazing picture. Great upgrade from an older 55". Love the now show wires and the quick connect box for adding devices.
All I can say is my experience with Crutchfield went as smooth as possible. As for the TV it's a gift I've seen it this TV in many places I thought it had a great picture. maybe after Christmas I can give a better review of how everything worked out for me.
Pros: Easy ordering Fast shipping.
Cons: No cons so far
Great TV. The "smart" functions do all I need and are so fast I can now get rid of all my other streaming devices (Xbox, apple TV, etc). The remote is fantastic too! The only negative is that the screen is "glossy" so reflects lamps in the back of the room.
Love it. Still exploring all of the features. Picture quality is excellent. Especially with the 4K content on Netflix. Replaced a 50" plasma.
Pros: Great picture quality and features with the added apps etc.
Cons: Not used to the simplistic remote yet. Still find myself grabbing the cable remote to change channels easier. Can't control volume of my added sound bar with the remote. I may be doing something wrong.
Great picture quality. Easy set up and easy to navigate.
Excellent quality. Amazing apps. Easy set up and beautiful picture. I am very happy to have picked this TV for my basement.
Bought this to replace LG 55 inch in our family room. The television itself is beautiful, and the connect hub results in only the power cord and one wire coming out the back so it looks very clean. The remote recognized my cable box and Blu ray and set up quickly. I'm still experimenting with the picture, but especially when you are sitting in front or at a slight angle it is stunning. I'm happy with the purchase and happy with Crutchfield- this is my third big screen tv that I've purchased from them.
Pros: Beautiful design, cool connect hub, still dialing in picture but its very good
Cons: Contrast not great at extreme angles
Best TV I have ever owned. The picture is incredible. A bit complicated for an old timer so I have some learning to do on a few things but it isn't the TV's fault. Right out of the box it is working great. I've never been disappointed by a Samsung TV.
This was an excellent choice. I it was the perfect size for my room and was easy to wall mount. The One Connect box was simple to hook up and it works perfectly and simplified the process by only requiring one cable to be run to the tv. The picture and Smart features are great. I considered buying the MU9000 but realized that unless they were sitting side by side, for comparison, I wouldn't know the difference and couldn't justify spending more money. I would rather use the savings to upgrade my subwoofer. This is the second large screen tv I have purchased from Crutchfield and both experiences have been totally rewarding.
Pros: Picture Smart features Easy hook up through One Connect Crutchfield tech assistance Free shipping
We love it!
Pros: As all of the advice says, bigger is better.
TV is fine, Crutchfield customer service / shipping is great!
The setup is easy, the OneConnect box is convenient and the remote recognized even my archaic cable box... The remote is slick and all devices were recognized on it, so it has become my universal remote; I have an LG BluRay player, a Pioneer amp, and the old cable box. The picture is great after adjustment, but that should be the case with every TV set.
Pros: Slim set, remote, easy setup.
Excellent product,well worth the price.The setup was beyond easy.
The side view of this TV is not nearly what I expected. I replaced a Panasonic plasma 50"" TV and moved it to another room. The plasma TV in my opinion has a better picture.
I did extensive research for several months on 65in Ultra HD TVs. You will not go wrong with this choice. Set up was quick and easy. I have a Samsung sound bar which the Mu 8000 recognized immediately. It is nice running the sound bar through the sleek remote. The TV arrived quickly. Thank you Crutchfield.
Pros: Great vivid picture from any angle
Great TV. Easy to set up. Love the separate box for the wires .
I received the TV in perfect condition from UPS Heavy freight- package in perfect condition. As I intstalled it there was a little strip of protective film from the screen that was pulled off. After customer service saw the pictures they promptly shipped me a new one. Kudos to good service.. its was a very slight defect or 'scratch and dent. " Bright picture with detail. Even though this is a 120 Hz hardware motion, In some fast sports scenes, banding and ghosting is perceptible. Out of the box, easy set up. I was connected to Wi-Fi and had Netflix streaming in 4k within 5 minutes of set up. I found that the "dynamic" color setting pleasing to the eye (noting it also has Utra HDR capability). Super TV, even better Crutchfield service!
Pros: Detailed and rich color. deep darks
Cons: very limited blurring in sports action
TV has met all expectations. Setup and configuration with on screen menu is intuitive. Picture is outstanding!
Great TV. Sharp picture, lightweight. Awesome options. Easy set up!
Pros: Great Picture and Sounds and easy to set up.
I'm a diehard Samsung fan...until I bought this unit. Very buggy and requires a reset every 5-10 days. Loses its ability to connect to the internet frequently. Can see the wifi network but won't connect. It also loses it's connection to the blue tooth soundbar and will not reconnect until unplugged. There are other idiosyncratic things that it does, all similar. It may be a bad unit but its too late to request a replacement. I should have returned it at the first sign of issues I've never seen in Samsung product. When it is working, it is a very nice TV.
Pros: Great device, when it is working properly. Great price.
Cons: Buggy. See my review.Crutchfield response on 9/25/2017 Rolf, we're sorry you're having issues with your TV.

They can help you solve the problem or set up a return within 60 days of purchase. We forwarded this review to our Technical Support team for follow-up.

Great picture, and great sound. Also love the remote!
Awesome TV. Samsung is the way to go. Great picture and sound.
Pros: Easy set up. Great picture.
Cons: Ok remote. But works fine.
Great picture and easy installation. It even has decent sound for a flat screen.
Pros: As expected from Samsung, nice quality and a great picture
Cons: Remote is overly simplistic which takes time to get used to. Switched to a Harmony remote and have not looked back.
Always buy Samsung. Love the TVs. Own several.
Samsung TVs are my go to TV. Fantastic picture, great sound out of the TV, quality product, tons of extra features, easy set up, and intelligent user friendly menus. Love these TVs.
Pros: Superior sound and video, extra features, easy user friendly set up and menus.
Cons: Only one optic cable port.
Great TV with some interesting quirks. Overall the TV works very well as advertised. The picture quality is top notch, the screen extends nearly right to the edge, and appears to float on the wall. The remote is overly simplistic, relying on voice to replace buttons which is really cool, and really novelty and I immediately stopped using that option. The coupling of the TV with aftermarket universal remotes to gain more user friendly control is cumbersome, because there aren't dedicated buttons for selecting Smart TV applications such as Netflix, or Amazon TV, instead relying on a series of button presses and selections. This is an issue most people would not be bothered by. The applications are very easy to set up and link to existing accounts and their software is user friendly and intuitive. As thin as the TV is, it is thicker at the bottom than the top, so a flush wall mount leaves a large gap between the top of the TV and the wall, and if located in an area where you can view the TV from the side, can be odd looking. The Connect MINI box that houses all the HDMI ports, and optical output is cool, although not well thought through as not all the ports are on the back, although having only a power cable and one specialty cable coming from the TV is nice. Overall, I love the TV, and the minor quirks, are personal dislikes that wouldn't deter me from purchasing this product if I knew before I bought.
Pros: Picture Quality, Thin Bezel, Minimal Cables, Thin overall Thickness, Intuitive Apps
Cons: Remote is too simple, inconsistent thickness top to bottom, Connect MINI box cable location
Great price ,so far so good
Very nice picture right out of the box. Sound is good but may add a sound bar for more dynamic audio.
Pros: Picture quality and color depth. Easy setup. Small bezel and thin profile. Very nice Internet TV interface with fast response. Slim remote with voice control.
Cons: Mounting lugs for wall mounting not provided. Spacers were provided. This TV requires 8m x 43-45mm. My wall mount did not come with lugs this long so had to purchase additional lugs.

- This TV complies with the CTA 4K Ultra High-Definition Connected definition requirements. The trade organization known as the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) is considered an industry authority on engineering standards for consumer electronics in the United States. Visit www.cta.tech for more information.
- Please use a premium high speed HDMI cable with 18 Gbps and above to view 4K HDR content.
10-Bit Color w/ Peak Illuminator Pro: With a 10-bit panel, Samsung's UHD TVs are capable of displaying tons of colors with fine steps of gradation. With so many more colors to express, you'll see a picture that is more detailed and natural when compared to conventional 8-bit panels. The TV's Peak Illuminator Pro lets you see extended shades of colors that pop, with greater dynamic range, improved contrasting detail, and darker scene highlights that come alive.
Triple Black: The Samsung UHD TV incorporates three unique technologies to bring out enhanced detail with deeper blacks, letting you see greater detail even in the shadows of dark scenes.
MR 240 + Auto Motion Plus: The Samsung UHD TV combines its 120Hz native panel refresh rate with Samsung's proprietary MR 240 & Auto Motion Plus image processing technology, which is faster and more responsive than conventional image processors, as it interpolates intermediate frames to smooth out the image. MR 240 & Auto Motion Plus helps to remove blur and judder from scenes with large amounts of rapid movement to provide a clearer picture. MR 240 & Auto Motion Plus reduces blur so that action movies, sports and video games have enhanced clarity. Advanced panel and unique backlight technology combine with proprietary algorithms to reduce the response time and yield a more accurate image reproduction with faster onscreen motion.
HDMI 2.0a Inputs: The Samsung UHD TV is equipped with four HDMI 2.0a inputs (located on the One Connect Mini) to connect to your Blu-ray player, Satellite/Cable receiver, Game Console, and/or AV receiver. Any HDMI input can also be used to connect a PC to this TV. All HDMI inputs are 4K compatible, HDCP 2.2 compliant, and support 4:4:4 color subsampling.
Note: This TV does not contain analog composite or component video inputs.
Picture Controls: You can make the following adjustments for an optimum picture. The TV's picture adjustments can be made for a particular AV input or for all inputs.
Built-in HDTV Tuner: The included One Connect Mini features a built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Clear QAM tuner, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals (up to 1080i); subscription still required to receive cable channels. A single RF-type coaxial input is use to connect an external indoor/outdoor antenna (sold separately).
ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel within the television's HDMI 4 input enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, or HDMI inputs to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input.
Note: Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 4 input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.
Optical Digital Output: The TV's optical digital output terminal will output Dolby Digital or DTS (when available), as well as DTS Neo 2.5 or 2ch PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital or DTS when receiving Dolby Digital/DTS surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the tuner, network apps, HDMI inputs, or USB ports.
Note: This TV does not contain any analog audio inputs or outputs.
DTS Premium Sound: The Samsung UHD TV employs DTS Premium Sound processing which will decode DTS-encoded content, such as TV programming, Blu-ray movies, and streaming media, as well as processes stereo content to deliver an optimized virtual surround sound experience with enhanced bass response, clear dialog, and consistent volume levels through the TV speakers.
Equalizer: You can manually adjusts the TV's built-in 7-band EQ (100, 200, 500, 1k, 2k, 5k, & 10k Hz) for a more customized sound; or simply choose from the following EQ Preset Modes - Standard, Optimized, or Amplify.
Audio Delay: The Audio Delay function corrects audio/video mismatch, when watching TV or video, and listening to a digital audio output using an external device such as an AV receiver. You can adjust the audio delay from 0ms to 250 ms.
Wireless Audio Connectivity: The Samsung TV provides wireless connectivity to compatible Samsung SoundConnect soundbar speaker systems and Samsung Multiroom Link speaker systems. You can also wirelessly stream audio from the TV to a set of Bluetooth headphones or a single Bluetooth audio speaker.
Note: The SoundConnect, Multiroom Link, and Bluetooth HP features cannot be used simultaneously.
Samsung's Quad-Core Processor: Samsung's Quad-Core processing speeds allow you to perform multiple tasks at the same time, such as using an app while downloading another one.

You can enjoy a variety of content from various downloaded applications - such as movies, TV shows, music, news, sports, and weather.
Note: 4K & HDR network streaming requires a network speed of 20Mbps or greater. A wired Ethernet connection is recommended over a wireless WiFi connection for better performance.

The pedestal feet simply press into the mounting holes on the bottom of the TV without any mounting screws, hardware, or tools. The feet can be spaced 38" or 49.25" apart. The television weighs 54.7 lbs with the stand. The TV will not swivel.
Wall Mounting: The TV has four threaded inserts on the back and comes with four wall-mount adapters for use with an optional wall-mount bracket. The spacing of the mounting holes is 400mm (h) x 400mm (v). The threaded inserts and wall-mount adapters require M8 (8mm) machine screws (not supplied). The included wall-mount adapters must be used when wall-mounting television. The television weighs 53.1 lbs without the stand.
Cable Management: The back of the TV and the included pedestal feet provide cable channels so you can neatly route cords to the TV. There is a terminal cover and cable cover provided that snap to the back of the TV to hide cable connections, so the TV looks great front to back, whether mounted on the wall or sitting on a stand.
Ventilation Clearance: When mounting the TV on the stand or a wall (with optional bracket) leave 4" of clearance on each side of the television and 4" above/below the television for adequate ventilation.
Detachable AC Power Cord: The Samsung UHD TV comes with a 5' detachable AC power cord. The power cord plugs into the back of the TV (not the One Connect Mini). The AC power cord is fitted with a right-angle AC plug that sits 0.9375" from the wall.
