To update my post about 4 back in the queue. I complained about the difference in the mounting hole depths for wall mounting the 82 inch version of this television. The installer at Best buy called and said this happens all the time and just mount the television. I did move forward and it is now up and running. I made a few adjustments to the picture and this is a good TV. I will provide a more detailed report later but I have to go back to work now. Here are a few pics

Thank you very much in advance.
They break everything down in the motion section.

If you email Samsung they will answer. At least you would be hearing from the horses mouth.

Does anyone have the 49' model?. I just ordered it but I'm concerned how the lower motion will affect the picture quality. I've had many 100 hz tvs & they've all looked like **** tbh as they've been plagued by judder.

I have the 49” U.S model and for gaming the motion is great. It has no noticeable smearing/trailing in darker scenes and very little in the way of unnatural blur as far as I can tell.
Film wise I have noticed some minor judder with film content, but bumping de-judder up a couple notches helps smooth this out. This adds little to no interpolation artifacts or SOE.

For 50hz I have heard that turning on the motion LED feature on 50hz content will cause de-judder to be set to max and can significantly dim the screen.

Hope this helped

Had the same issue with my 82 with the hole depths. Mounted it to a Monoprice Full Motion mount and it works great. Very impressed with the TV. Ran some 4k blu rays and the colors are amazing. Coming from an 2014 55' LG IPS display the upgrade has been amazing.

Looking at a 82" NU8000, Is yours located in a dark or bright room?

The best PQ comes when your eyes are right in the middle of the screen. Unless your screen is tilted down your eyes are well below optimum.

Yea I'd like to have it mounted lower but the wife wanted her space for pictures/decorations. You can't tell much from the picture but I do have it tilted down the full motion mount gives me tilt/swivel.
We like having it pulled out all the way and tilted down at us when watching movies at night. I'll get a better picture of the view straight on.

I asked this question on Best Buys website for this 82" model. Here was the answer.


"I just setup this TV in my home. There are two spacings for the legs. 63" which did not fit on my table and a shorter distance which I used. I just now measured the exact distance from the outside of one foot to the outside of the other foot and it is 48.5 inches. My table is 59" and works quite well."

Hi all, can someone tell me the spacing of the VESA wall mount on the NU8000? Rtings.com says its 200x200, but i went to a bestbuy here in Canada and it looks more like 400x400.

you answered the question already! it only has 60hz so motion will not be nearly as smooth as 120hz

Depends on the screen size. 65” and up its 400x400. Smaller sizes are 200x200.

oh that's right, Rtings reviewed the 55" version. Sorry I should have seen that.

Strange, the us model has one fewer spacings than the eu version.

What kind of motion problems were you having and what motion related settings are you using ?

I'm having motion problems as well. Otherwise the set is satisfying. When a tennis player is bouncing the ball before serving. It appears as a series of white dots instead of one solid ball going up and down. How to I check what firmware I have? Patrick

I am probably being picky now when it comes to picture quality (tho motion was too bad before the newer firmware, despite trying out every combination), but now there still is too much ghosting, and sometimes the deinterlacing fails. Also too many ziggys.A good example is when a soccer ball at a reasonable speed, the ball falls to bits and leaves a trail and often flickers which is also easy to see on large motion objects, where even my old 55c8000 keeps the ball together. Slow enough and its fine. Motion wise my old 120 inch vw10 does a better job, so its not (just) a size thing. I tried sharpness between 0 and higher, but 0 does a better job, all options digital clean etc to on or a mix or all off. Best at the moment is film mode off, blurr reduction 0 judder reduction 10, tho before the firmware update the other way round worked better. Even with a popular motion test on youtube with squares and text, it cleary leaves a black ghosting over the white back ground which also shows up in the real world, tho less offcourse. Panning could also be slightly better. Moving fingers is also a good thing to look at, as the fingers regulary fall to bits at speed, if it where mere motion blur that would be fine, but the picture disappears for a bit, and thats annoying.

I presume the combination of 4k and motion which needs more computing power, is the main reason the old c8000 does a better job, and well sony is just better at motion, I hope that samsung can bring the picture quality up another notch in a firmware update.

If i look at rtings motion interpolation it looks similar like the fail picture, tho running their test it looks similar to the pass.

I have only tested (european) real iptv and sattellite broadcasts sd, hd, uhd, uhd with hdr and uhd with hlg. Then also internet clips, and offcourse the better the source (higher frame rate and or bitrate) the fewer the problems. Not tested dvds, bd, or uhd disks on this device.

I can live with how it is, but a little better would be preferred so I can be fully happy with the tv, but only better software will fix this and I do realize not all problems can be fixed.

In The last 6 weeks I've had the 75NU8000, the Vizio P75-F1, the 82NU8000, and a replacement (cracked screen) 82NU8000. My last one was delivered the night before we left on vacation for 2 weeks but I set it up the sa!me way as the 75 and the cracked 82. The 75 had the eco mode set to on so I quickly turned that off. The two 82,s were both already set to off. I use a normal setting for temp and natural for color. I am still experimenting with HDR on or off. I love the picture as well as the remote, I realize that the Q series might me a little better but for the price difference and the 82 I would not trade it for any of them.

Thanks for your reply.

I see Costco is carrying the 82" Q6 model now and it cost more but I'm sure deals will come in the next few months.

If a 77" Oled comes down that's what I'll get or 85" 900f.

I'm not in a hurry but like to get feedback from owners thanks.

These are just my opinions.

Hi,

Have connected my laptop to a 75NU8000 with a high speed HDMI cable to watch movies. My problem is that whenever I try to to set HDMI3(port connected to pc) on the tv to UHD Color on my laptop starts acting weird and I will also loose the connection to the tv. With UHD color turned off it seems the bit depth stays at 8bit. Therefore I suspect that I'm not getting the best out of the 4K/UHD movies I try to watch this way.
Have also tried connecting the laptop to my AVR, but the same thing happens then.

Not sure if there's any settings on my pc causing this or if it's the tv. My laptop has pretty good specs with HDMI 2.0(hdcp), i7 7700HQ cpu and Geforce GTX1070 GPU.

If any of you guys have any idea what's causing this I'd appreciate feedback

Just a quick note on a feature this TV has.

If you want to use the TV as a Bluetooth receiver, sending audio via optical to your AV receiver, it works well AND you have the option to turn the display OFF.

I have an old Kenwood that does not have Bluetooth so this feature allowed me to get rid of my external Bluetooth receiver.

Application? Playing music from your iPhone, tablet, etc. through your old (but new enough to have optical) receiver.
