Being a new owner of an 82MU8000, I thought I’d weigh in. So far, I’m thoroughly impressed! I set out to buy a Sony 75x900e (which theoretically is a better television) but I saw them side by side at Best Buy and the Sammy simply looked better with the exact same content. Ultimately, we don’t watch features and specs, we view images, colors, etc., and this tv is really good. The extra real estate makes a huge difference, too, particularly with UHD content. I also like the way it works in tandem with my Samsung Blu-ray player (M9500) to automatically select the best settings on both tv and br to get the best picture. Given the reasonable price tag, I’m blown away by the quality of images I’m seeing. Yay!
