Samsung BU8500 Review Appearance​

This Samsung 8500 TV with 3 black Bezel-less has a slim body like most smart TVs, taking up very little space. Therefore, you can also hang it on the wall without any gap. Also, it has a narrower type of base, but you don't have to worry about its stability at all.

One of the highlights of this Samsung 8500 4K TV is that it features Samsung's Dynamic Crystal Color. Crystal UHD is the name of Samsung's entry-level LCD LED TVs. They're all 4K resolution and support HDR (High Dynamic Range) for better color. Samsung's Dynamic Crystal Color technology unlocks a vast array of stunning hues and colorful tones on your TV screen. As a result, it can display lifelike, vibrant, and detailed pictures.

Samsung BU8500 Review Sound​

The Samsung BU8500 features 20W speakers with Dolby Digital Plus support, as well as Object Tracking Sound Lite, which allows you to fully immerse yourself in the audio experience with its 3D surround sound for virtual top channel audio. Alternatively, you can use it with a soundbar, which will make the sound even better.

Samsung BU8500 Review Gaming​

Samsung BU8500 has 60Hz refresh rate and supports ALLM to meet the basic gaming needs. According to the official, it is not clear if it has HDMI 2.1 interface. I'm afraid it only has HDMI 2.0. This means that it's gaming performance is not very good compared to other top-of-the-line TVs (120Hz, HDMI 2.1). But it's still in the leading edge of entry-level TVs.

Besides, the remote control supports voice search, so users can control the TV without any hassle.
